"Run!" she had told him. "Wait for me at Saint Elen's Cross."
He had waited, but she had never come.
Sometimes, he felt as though, after all these years, he was still waiting.

You might remember this one (mainly because it's in my journal header ;)) - I'd always liked it and wanted to make a portfolio piece of it, but I'd lost the old (digital) version in a data crash. So I went for watercolour this time, and feel I did it much more justice.

Watercolour, Sepia markers, white markers.

In figure and portrait drawing, the challenge is in conveying character, personality, emotion, attitude, spirit, and story of the character. In story illustration, the challenge is even higher, because it is much more minimal in the amount of lines you can work with. The real judge of an Illustrator is how well this done. You are telling a story through face and body language.

Having looked through much of your art, I have to say that you do an excellent job of conveying character, personality, emotion, attitude, spirit, and story of your characters. I have enjoyed looking at your work.

Oh yeah I remember this one from your header. It always drew my attention to it. His look.. so .. broken. Now I read what you wrote I can understand. Very nice. I love the details. The raven is great as well. I love how he mirrors the look down.

The detail in the cloth is awesome as well.

Thanks! After doing this, I kept thinking if the crow had looked up or been turned the other way round it would have been more dynamic, but the staticness (not a word, huh?) here looks pretty good too...
