26. Let's talk art! Do you draw your characters? Do others draw them? Pick one of your OCs and post your favorite picture of him!
Well, I rather spilled the beans on this one with my post yesterday, eh? Though it would be quite difficult to visit any of my five LJs and not notice my character art with the headers/sidebars images or icons, entries, main pages, and so forth. So yes, I most certainly do art of my beloved characters!
Do others draw them? Actually, that is the number one top reason I would ever want to be published--in hopes of just that. Fan art of my characters would be the most wonderful gift in all the world, really. So that's something I definitely long for.
I have a really hard time with the 'favorite picture' bit! Usually, that's a more recent picture, when the glow of accomplishment hasn't quite worn off yet, and I've not yet spotted all 286 things I could have done better/differently. I'm also biased in that the ones I tear my hair out over for weeks are less of a treat than the ones that startle me and practically fall into my lap.
Having said all that, my big version of a fairly quick Portal Page illustration for my novella The Great Wave is one that I have remained pretty fond of, even if t'DoL's just wearing slapdash substitutes for his real clothing at this point, and has a fakey 'wig.' Still quite fond of it!
