Finishing Characters

He's done. Finished. Hunky. Well, at least I think so. Who is he? The love interest in one of my books, and by finished I mean the sketch I've been working on of him. I want to draw all my characters in an effort to see them more clearly. Guess what, it's working.

Check him out.



Now onto the next one. She'll be harder because I've known her longer and the details will have to be just right. It's tough to take a person you've only seen in your head and put them down on paper with a handful of pencils and lots of erasing. But then again, it's the same way with writing them, it takes lots of words and even more deleting to get them right.

What are you working on today?

Susan Kaye Quinn said...

I just love that pictures. Hunky, definitely, yes. :)

LeishaMaw said...

Susan, I'm glad I'm not the only one thinking hunky.

Mary Campbell said...

Wow - so good. I'm jealous of people who can draw their characters. It must be so helpful to be able to see them. You're a very good artist and I'm in love just looking at him.

L.T. Elliot said...

You've got mad skills, Leisha. Wow.

I haven't the artistic skill to manage that. Wish I did but sadly...nope.

Looking forward to seeing your girl MC!

Tiana Smith said...

Great job! I wish I had some artistic ability, but I think stick figures are the extent of my talents. He's very hunky :)

LeishaMaw said...

Mary, it is great being able to look at his features. :)

L.T., you are too, too kind. If I can learn to do it, you can. Really. And I can't wait to see my other mc either.

Tiana, I was drawing stick figures about year ago. Bad stick figures. Then a friend started giving me art lessons, and I was hooked. I can't claim any credit, it's all her awesome teaching skills. But he is hunky. ;)

Stacy Henrie said...

Wow - that's an incredible picture. A talented writer and artist!

LeishaMaw said...
