This week’s art was inspired by the A BARRICADE IN HELL by Jaime Lee Moyer
A Barricade in Hell | Currently reading – Review coming soon! | Goodreads
This particular series features Delia who can see ghosts. One of the main ghosts in A BARRICADE IN HELL is the ghost of a little girl who carries around a little china doll. She has ringlet hair and haunting blue eyes.
There is also a secondary character named Isadora that is a friend and mentor to Delia. She is a powerful spiritual medium. In one scene she drove up to Delia’s house to pick her up and she was described wearing brown aviator goggles and brightly colored scarfs on her head that trailed behind her as she drives. As you can tell I’m trying to add color. My sketches for the next few weeks likely aren’t going to be as good because since I’m not very good at coloring with markers yet I’m investing less time in the sketches until I get better with the markers. (These aren’t my copic markers yet – these were the normal markers I had – next time though!) And yes I know this doesn’t look like something from 1917 San Francisco – cut me some slack.
Alright folks link up and lets see what you’ve done! Remember to link back to this post!
Each Thursday, our copy of ‘The Tough Guide to Fantasyland’ in hand, we shall tour the mystical countryside looking for adventure and fun (and tropes) from all over fantasy.
Today’s Tour Topic is…MINIONS!
MINIONS OF THE DARK LORD are all over the place. The DARK LORD has been busy planting them for years.
OLIVER TWIST by Charles Dickens – What better minions could there be then a pack of kids running around stealing and delivering you all of their loots each day!?
DRAGON WING by Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman – Anyone else read this one? It’s the first in the series and here the “Gegs” are another name for dwarfs and these dudes serve the great machine that is the Kicksy Wicksy (I might be spelling that wrong I’m going by memory here).
READY PLAYER ONE (my review) by Ernest Cline -The Sixers are pretty much a guild of players that work for the company IOI and they are after the hidden easter egg in Oasis. If they win Oasis would forever be controlled by the evil company! Down with the man I say!
MISTBORN by Brandon Sanderson -The Steel Inquisitors are scary as hell. I mean come up they have big huge steel spikes jammed into them all over their body – and they work for the bad guy – how much more minion ca you get?
CINDER (my review), SCARLET (my review) and CRESS (my review) by Marissa Meyer – The Lunar Queen has been planting her spies and soldiers all over Earth for well probably for as long as she’s been in power – maybe even before. She has secret agents that are hybrid wolf / lunar.
STORMDANCER (my review) and KINSLAYER (my review) by Jay Kristoff -The Guildsman control the blood lotus that is fueling all the tech in the country and poisoning it at the same time. They don’t really work for the Emperor but they try to make him think they do.
