My messy sketches by Rinian My messy sketches by Rinian
Hi guys, I've been busy with so many commission projects that I haven't had any time to draw for fun, save for a couple of doodles done at work. :cry:

For now, all I can offer are some old, old messy pencil sketches. I might refine and color them someday, if commissions plus my regular day job don't kill me first, that is. Agh, juggling two jobs is HARD. I want a vacation. Hurry up, Christmas!!!

Sooo... some are book fan art, and whoever knows these books gets an awesome cookie. :cookie:

So there's Christopher Chant and Conrad from Conrad's Fate by Diana Wynne Jones, a very cute story by one of my favorite authors. (Conrad is holding a piece of cork and has no idea what it is for) :XD:

... and Dr. Farcett, Montmorency, and Scarper from Montmorency by Eleanor Updale. (I absolutely adore this series. Mystery and espionage in the Victorian era, oh my. I would like to make a proper drawing when I have the time! :heart:)

Until then. ;)

Haha, it's a hit and miss thing whenever I buy books because I just grab whatever catches my eye and if the summary sounds interesting, I buy it. I've picked up a couple of awful ones, but it feels really good when you discover gems like Montmorency. :D

And the Abhorsen Trilogy as well as the Bartimaeus one. <3 Of which, I hear, there is to be a new book in 2010!

And your artwork is also a gem. :D

oh my, thank you for this. :heart:

Say, would you happen to know any other interesting books out there? I am seriously running out of things to read and the most recent book I got was a dud (Shadowmancer by GP Taylor--totally did not appeal to me at all). The last good book I read was The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I want more awesome stories if you could recommend any (since we seem to share the same taste in books)! :D

The Book Thief is absolutely amazing, truly stunning. Moves me to tears everytime... I was right! You ARE awesome at choosing books! :D

Well, I don't know if you've read Hitch Hikers' Guide to the Galaxy. If not, I'd highly suggest it, but please don't delve in thinking you'll actually understand any of it. I don't think one is supposed to.

Also... let's see. Atonement is wonderful if you're wanting a real reading experience. It has to be one of the most beautifully written books of all time.

However though! If you like Jonathon Stroud's style, I'd get a hold of another book of his... The Last Siege? Marcus (one of the protagonists) is rather Bartimeaus-esque. I fell in love with it. And him.

I saw the movie of Hitch Hikers' Guide to the Galaxy a while back, though I can't seem to remember what it was about.

Who is the author for Atonement?

I've read Stroud's other books, Buried Fire and The Leap, and they were... bad. ugh! So I did not touch The Last Siege even though my sister got a copy. :| But alright, I'll give it a try. :D

Hnnngh, I love those Montmorency sketches at the bottom! Sometimes I feel like the series doesn't get enough attention...But still, the Scarper drawing made me make a fangirl squeal. LOL

I really want to, but the problem is finding it here... Not every bookstore here in Brazil sells books in English, most books by foreign authors are translated.... D:
