Meeting Your Own Character: Falion’s Ghost

Part IV

On May 26, Liiga Smilshkalne supplied me with two concept sketches.  The first was this blue one.  It looked nothing like I’d imagined from the face to the posture to the colors.

But I hardly noticed that, for something amazing happened…I knew the moment I saw the green one, I was looking at the ghost of my character.  A promise of what he could be. Too green, blocky, a little intensely eyeless…but he was in there, like a ghost haunting just below the surface.


And we have a winner! Preliminary Concept Art by Liiga Smilshkalne.

I could hardly contain myself.  I sent it around to the members of my writer’s group.  The decision was unanimous.
