Rhys and Cadwy by Gold-Seven Rhys and Cadwy by Gold-Seven
Two characters from my eternal novel-in-progress... Somehow, I always draw the scenes in which nothing happens. ;)

Rhys ap Huw, left, is the commander of the Prince's army; his brother Cadwy ap Huw, right, is a priest. Rhys is one of my favourite characters. He's the main character's best friend, and is the cautious, planning-ahead type. Plus, he's got red hair. ^___^ If you'd like more about the characters (no novel synopsis), you can go here: [link]

Watercolour. Minor touchups in Photoshop--my scanner still isn't used to have colour on it...

Find out more about "The Rhyddion Chronicles" here! [link]

I didn't know you wrote too! I guess I've got some reading material now, so I'm off to procrastinate with that...

Ok, I've been looking at all your pictures and the way you've summed up Rhys is exactly why I think he's my favorite too. ^_^ haha, Red hair's always been a sincher for me too. lol

You speak Welsh? Whee! I don't know any apart from what I've been scraping together from books... IF you speak Welsh (even a little) and IF you'd be willing to help me with a few words and phrases from my story, please note me - that would be so cool ^^

I dont speak welsh, but im welsh and I live in wales and I know some welsh, I just cant hold much of a conversation with a fluent speaker! But im not completly useless, I know a little ^_^
im sure there are a few here who could help you more than I can but I'll try if youve got anything!

I love your work, I remember seeing it on Elfwood years ago when I was first starting to read the sil and just getting into art! I love your watercolours, especially,

Thanks a lot! I'm really, really self-conscious about my feeble attempts at Welsh, but I guess unless I want to remain terrified of any Welsh speaker discovering the book - if it's ever published - I'd better check with one before that happens ;)

It's a couple of terms that I've come up with and would like to know if they sound odd, and I really need to know how plural endings work in Welsh ;)

And - I don't know if you've ever read them, but the books by Katharine Kerr use a lot of Welsh as well. Kerr uses nicknames for most of her characters, male ones ending in -o, females in -a. Is that correct in Welsh? I have another novel in which the nickname for Llywelyn is Llelo, so that seems to fit?
