As the story went through the ringer, it became gruffer, more real, and in turn more beautifully imperfect. The original text had been written as though a water color or an impressionist blur, but has morphed into something coarser... something that makes sense to me. I had characters that were truly imperfect and needed a more imperfect world. It's always so interesting the progression and evolution of worlds and stories. The picture below is still in part from the days of a less developed world, but the character still feels right, and so I thought it an appropriate piece to share. Lane is one of the few characters that has never changed too drastically from original renditions.
More previews to come as time allows... :)
