Decided to take a few random pictures, and I suddenly remembered this little pretty. Ladies, Gentlemen, and everything in between or neither, allow me to introduce Style:
One of my best friends gave her to me. Bought her at some trade show thing, I think. It’s been a couple years, I don’t remember for sure. I’m not sure how much use she’d actually be – I don’t know how strong the blade is – but she’s a pretty little thing.
Okay, so one of my beta readers, Erwin, is obsessed with Vikings. He’s constantly suggesting I add more vikings to whatever I’m writing, regardless of genre/format/etc.. Don’t ask me, I don’t get it. I like the mythology, runes, and the way Chris Hemsworth looks as Thor, but that’s where my interest ends.
Anyway. So while writing Chapter 2 of When Love Dies, I came to a block in the flow, and Erwin once again started suggesting that I add vikings. This is what came from that. Enjoy.
(Spoilers for Chapter 2)
A very special Sharing Saturday! I’ve always been lucky with my friends, but I hit one of the jackpots here. Dave decided to draw one of my characters for me. It’s not finished, but he gave me permission to share the preliminary sketch with you all, so…
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce Kerry:
I got a little too excited and did a little coloring with Paintshop:
(The gold is her glau shining around the colored contacts she wears.)
Nowhere near as amazing as it’s going to be when Dave is finished with it, but it was fun and I am excited to see where it goes from here.
On a side note, if you guys need some artwork done, go check him out! He’s still new to wordpress (I bullied him into getting a blog just last night), but he’s good!
For those of you who are not familiar with the artist Gackt, he is a Japanese rock singer. Lovely voice, gorgeous everything, but good lord, the man cannot dance, and some of his videos are just…no.
I introduced a new friend to Gackt’s music tonight. Warned him about the videos. He went watching anyway. He was lucky. He found the videos that weren’t “No.”. I had to point him to one of my favorite “WTF” videos of his. It’s the music video for “Vanilla” (feel free to look it up for a giggle). His reaction was as follows:
“HE WENT SUPER SAIYAN!!!”
Yes. Yes he did.
