well they're not the very first sketches actually, first sketches are when one has still no idea of what the character's face should look like, these are just rough sketches I made when I began to figurate how I wanted this boy to look like.
somehow I always feel my rough sketches being more beautiful than the final version of my drawings...=P
Dinn Keene is the story's main character and narrator, he being a fostered young boy ( fostering young kids was a common custom in ancient and medieval Irland, ) dealing with local feuds, the ideals of wandering Christian missionaries, and with the growing up of his green first love. Still the story is not a mushy love story, instead it touches themes quite bitter and tough in a very simple and pure way, in my opinion.

Character from my project Andvarnaut, where she would be an old witch-like woman indeed, but I got this inspiration of drawing her younger while listening some Florence and The Machine's tunes.
I effectively took inspiration from Florence Welsh herself for the charachter's looking.
Regarding the character's name I would have liked to call her like a celtic goddess of the river Seine or its nearbies: Sequana is the name of Gaulish goddess of the river Seine, but it was too long, so I called her Onua, a short form I made of the name Onuava, another Gaulish goddess related to earth and fertility rather than rivers, but I thought it would fit well however, and the character is not a goddess, in the end, she's a druidess and the River's Guardian.
coloured with watercolours, I still lack some precision with brushes, I have to practice to improve, still I think I've already improved a lot from my first tries ( which I've not the guts to show... ^^)

three pages I realized last autumn for a contest.
sometimes I think they're not too bad...then I look again and then change my mind, beyond the fact that my attempt to write the story in French ( it was for a French contest) did probabily produce a number of grammar errors and nonsenses still unknown in the history of traslation...if we would not consider my attempts to write in English on my blog, of course ^_^'
the story was suggested to me by the beautiful song 'Changeling Child' by Heater Dale, still I would have liked to do it more justice.
Maybe someday I will be able to, I wish so ^^
