Artwork by Brittiny!

Hello everyone!

Today I wanted to share some artwork with you. This was done by my wonderfully talented friend, Brittiny Hines. She's responsible for the artwork you've seen on my blog. Check out her blog HERE! I gave Brittiny descriptions from my books and these Pinterest boards:

Larkin Inspiration
Sara Inspiration

You'll probably be able to figure out what she drew from.

These two are called Character Sheets. All those notes are questions and thoughts Brittiny had while drawing them. I can tell you that she portrayed these girls perfectly. I mean, she even considered how the curves of their bodies would reflect their personality. Isn't that crazy?




Now, once she's finished, she'll paint them. She e-mailed me this surprise last night:



I couldn't stop staring at these pictures. I mean, Brittiny brought my characters to life, and I was just in awe. What do you guys think? And how have you managed to bring your characters to life?

  2. Those are such fantastic character drawings. I'm jealous. I love how they have so much personality, like you can totally see that they are scheming something up.

    1. Thanks, Rena! They do look like they are scheming up something, LOL. I was also amazed by how well she conveyed their personalities! It really is awesome what various artists can do with your own art.

  3. Very cool. I want to see her draw a femme fatale, now. Bright red lips, "woe is me" eyes, etc. I tend to sketch my characters out a few times while writing my books. It helps me cement certain things about them. I'm not as good as your friend here, though!
