TP WIP: watching by Minuiko TP WIP: watching by Minuiko
a really messy WIP of the moment right before George introduces himself to Alanna and Gary, who are exploring the port.

I need to do a LOT more research on what Port Caynn should look like, as well as clothing/etc there. I was trying to go more for the general feel. This was a color test more than anything. Sorry about the wonky perspective too.

I do have a question - how do you guys picture Gary? He's one of those characters I have absolutely no mental image of.

George, Alanna, Gary (c) Tamora Pierce

Gary should be more bookish type, I mean he carries ALL of his documents with him to council meetings to save time and he quotes law...

Yeah, I don't really know about Gary. Darker hair, in my imagination...

Only thing I can say is that I sort of see him as having a lumpy nose, idk...

Comparing this and your other things with Alanna and George (and Neal and Kel) I have to say you do a really good job of showing the same characters at different ages.

Even though this is just a WIP, I think I'm going to go ahead and favorite it. You captured the feel of a sunny afternoon really well, and there's a real sense of them being out and about in a big space.

thanks for the fav then! I'll try to refine it soon but finals are coming up so I'm super busy (I keep wanting to sketch instead of doing complete pieces haha)

I LOVE how you've drawn George's face : D.
In the First book (Alanna: The First Adventure) Gary: Large young man. Chestnut hair and eyes.

It was REALLY weird that I actually had the book on me when I read your question.

No problem. All I had to do was go digging in my bag and flick to the right page.

My favorite scene (because it's the introduction of my literary heart throb~ <3)! Looks amazing, just personally I would imagine Gary with longer hair due to that description of George, about how he wore his hair short "as all commoners do" (something of the like). Since Gary was a noble, I assumed his hair is long as the fashion goes.

That's a good point! Will dwell on that for a bit :)

The colors pulled together really nicely. I'm afraid I can't be of much help for suggestions, though, for either Port Caynn or Gary. I just started rereading the Lioness series the other day and have plowed my way through to the last book, but you're right, Gary does not have much in the way of physical description besides the fact that he's big. I do like the way you portrayed George here, though, although I always pictured his hair a bit darker. :shrug:

I picture his hair darker too in neutral lighting; I put a yellow overlay over the picture so it turned out blonder than I'd meant it, haha.

Whoops. The overlay looks great, though, so I guess it all works out.

I need to go dig up my copies of the lioness quartet to find how he's described there. My imagination always conjures up Gary when he's Gareth The Younger Duke of Naxen, all grown up, from the Keladry stories.

yup all I've got is that he's "big" but smaller than Raoul, and he has chestnut hair, and everyone thinks he's really sharp/smart. He's got a slight sarcastic streak. Visually I've got nothing :/

Is there a description of the older Gareth? Could probably reverse-engineer gary the younger from gareth the older.

I don't think it's detailed either but I will try to find one.

I don't remember is there was description for it, but I always thought of it parted to the side and kinda swished back, but still fairly short.

George and Alanna look spiffy though :3 (Gary does too, just different XD)
