So I am trying my hand at digital art... here is my first attempt:

 

ee80229bdd950556785ee92488041d5a-d63pmr2

 

AWESOME!!!! I know I should be able to recognize these characters. Looking forward to seeing more artwork.

 

Well, apparently summer has arrived. Winter ended yesterday. The power company flipped to summer time-of-use charges today, and tossed in a rate hike to liven it up.

Lovely weather, so we mostly set up the back deck and had supper out there. The barbecue isn't set up yet. Maybe I'll get to it tomorrow. Hit 20C (68F) this afternoon under sunny skies, and it is expected to stay like that until Monday, when it will be slightly cooler.

 

I think I'm dubbing you "Oh Great One" after reading that article. Yes, winter seems to have ended in RI. The trees have still not turned green but the temperature yesterday was 70 degrees. BTW, I have purchased several of your brother's books. Looking forward to reading them after finishing Vincent's special edition.

 

Ooo bbq weather, and it is a bank holiday here on Monday. Ours looks like an old steam locomotive, it is huge. Mr Mindwarp will be very excited.

 

 

we haven't BBQ'd yet but I think I'll suggest it to Superman (he's the BBQ'er in our house).

 

Isn't that an accept price you ladies pay for fashion? LOL

 

Got another one I am working on... liking it much better so far, hoping to to sell them via stock photo, or premade book covers or something. Right now just learning the tool and practicing.  I need raise money to by more textures and etc so that is why hoping to sell these. So my art can fund my art! :D

 

Can't wait to see it!!!! Loving my re-read of the first quartet. I was able to download the corrected version.  :)

Thanks!

 

Well, they are not characters from the story (though might add them LOL). I am really liking how the girl is coming out in the second one. Right now its a couple... umm with fire. That is your teaser LOL. Textures, and objects and stuff are expensive. So need figure out the best way to monetize this... and then I can put some actual character sketches in up coming books :)

 

BTW- what was your preference with downloading the corrected version of the new novel? I do not have a kindle so no way to see it.

OK dearest psillies, you have far surpassed any other forum I have looked at and the bar raised here is pretty darn high! I went to a forum devoted to my "ladyparts" issue (yes, it's still not healed). Well "if" they reply it is not with the support, compassion, intelligence and understanding (and love) that makes our forum the best! I deleted my account with them this morning. This is the best adopted family that anyone could hope for and I treasure you all more each day. No more looking to other forums. I can get everything I need (and more) from all of you and am eternally grateful.

 

Brief update on Superman: He still hadn't received the offer email from Sentient but yesterday the manager texted him to let him know that HR was slow and that he shouldn't worry** - he has the job. After all of the false starts and rejections DH has suffered, I think he's got a really good boss (actually his boss' boss). He is sleeping like a baby and is also cutting back on caffeine as he won't get pee breaks when he's in surgery. The commute will be long and hard and he'll be on call nights and weekends but he's looking forward to it. I now have 3 friends in the area (only took 3 years) so he's happy I'll be busy. The program in Boston wanted a second interview with him. Two of the medical staff who were supposed to be at first interview couldn't make it - I assume it was due to the Boston Marathon victims hospitalized there (Boston Children's Hospital - his interview was on Wednesday - only two days after the horrific bombings). He decided not to go to the second interview as he had the job offer and by him dropping out someone who may have been on a waiting list might get a chance.

 

I think I updated ou on Tony. He already set up his internship at the Public Defender's Office and seems fine about not getting the internship with Blizzard. He has to study for his LSAT's this summer and will also tutor for extra cash.

 

OK, time to go get comfortable (still painful to sit at the computer and my Kindle doesn't let me respond to the threads here). Someday I'll inherit DH's iPad  :) Thanks again for being such an important part of my life. 

 

Love & Hugs,   :wub:  :wub:  :wub: 

Loey

 

 

**  He got a call from HR this afternoon that the offer would arrive today or tomorrow  :D  :D

Phew - I was worried that my previous "fog" made me unable to identify the characters. Just looking at them I hope to see them in future books.

 

I went to the help section and had to email them to tell them there was an updated version. Then I just had to go to the "manage your Kindle" section and they deleted the first one and replaced it with the newer version. It was easier than I thought it would be. I usually receive emails when any of my purchases are updated but they did not have the first quartet on that list. Hopefully they added it.

hehe I love the flames! You will see more of them. Anyways... the sash on him is me cheating. I could not get the shirt and pants to look right where they met, so I covered it. ;)

I told my wife he is thinking "Man, how did I get stuck with this girly sash," and she is like "Aw, its cute! Can I borrow it?" That is what I see NOW, but was not the original thought lol.

Hmmmmm, let's see.....trouble with the area between the shirt and the pants....and the sash is, well, kinda girly.....perhaps this is why the bloke looks, well, sad...defeated...girlfriend has FORCED him to put this sash on, as she made it for him as a birthday gift. "Honey, why are  you looking so miserable? It really looks elegant and striking....it's the latest fashion element in warrior clothing,....TRUST me on this"...

Poor guy. He must be thinking, "I am going to be SO annihilated by the guys at the group jousting....they'll NEVER let up"....

Hope he's feeling better! All I can say about the covers is that I can't wait to see how they tie in with your upcoming novels. You've sure branched out with your talent - keep it up!   :)

Awesome graphics Vienna!  Like that the women don't have boobs big enough to shade a village.

 

Turks survived their first night outside after much wailing last night.  They had to appreciate being able to wander around this morning when they got up.  I let everyone out in the yard and came inside to make some warm high-protein mash for the tirkeys.  When I came out they were perched on the deck furniture waiting.  A few more days and hopefully they'll be too big to fit through the fence.

 

I have five freedom rangers (meat chickens) in my livingroom now.  Fortunately we're having a spate of exceptionally warm weather so I'll put them outside in a pen as soon as the sun comes out.  They're a week old and need it to be quite a bit warmer.

Thanks! I have a new version of that same pick with much better lighting, but now you can see how horrible the floor texture is so still working on it. I might just leave the bad lighting LOL
