Inktober 2018 - Eyila

   This week, I drew Eyila, of the Ikaheka wind tribe. She almost didn't happen, I've been so excited about my book - I'm writing some big revelations right now, and my heart's been in my throat for days over it! The second book of the trilogy is nearly finished, too - it's so close I can taste it!! Of course, then comes some final redrafting, simmering and pondering before I send it out to agents, but the longest job is almost done, and I remain confident that it's my best work yet.
   Anyway, as for Eyila, yet another character from The Zi'veyn, I think I did a great job on her - which is odd, since it was the most ambitious. I chose to colour her skin because, while you can't really see it in this scan, it is actually bronze with a metallic sheen, and is quite a striking feature, so it was an obvious choice when it came to picking just one feature to colour. That said, I did also do her eyes... I'm really pleased with how she came out ^^
