Another drawing for Heather Remaly's Ghosts Of Babylon
, which WILL be continued! (I AM EXCITE)
In the story -- and I don't think it's spoilery to say this -- Gabriel brings Audrey up to a cave high in the mountains where he sews up her cuts and sets her broken leg and such. When she has enough strength to be bitching about anything, he tells her she's not going to be leaving the cave, ever. He intends to bring her everything she needs, but keep her away from other humans altogether. At that point I had to step away from the computer and go punch some walls. I just started thinking of all the ways I'd try to leave, broken leg be damned.
Clearly things get better between the two, but not before they get considerably worse. He loves her, but to Audrey he's just a violent, possessive giant who doesn't know how to find clothes that fit her.
I don't usually bother with backgrounds or complicated shading, and I'm no Chris Van Allsburg, obviously, but this turned out pretty okay. Audrey surprised me again with her attitude. This is a girl who's not afraid to punch an archangel even when she can't stand up on her own.materials: pencil on paper + PS8
