I really could do with an insanely gifted artist friend right now *sigh* Preferably one with lots of time on their hands *grin*. My fantastic friend Sian whom I’ve mentioned before is actually quite the artist but also has a pretty busy job preventing both time and inspiration for drawing. Such a bummer – I’ll have to steal one of her dragon sketches and scan it on to show you all!
To try and work with this desire to ‘see’ my characters I’ve been trawling ElfWood for pictures that inspire me. I’ve also got images of actors that work for certain characters, but I’m stuck on one character.
Alek, the guy who Cat falls for. He’s based on Darien from Sailor Moon which is a cartoon I love and have loved from discovering it at 12 or so. I can’t find a pic of anyone who resembles him in real life and googling ‘tall dark & handsome’ brings up lots of unwanted results. Sigh. I’ll just have to keep hunting!
