A Tidbit of Temmin

We've met the target for this week's chapter and a little more, but artwork ain't cheap. To encourage folks to kick in extra for Alice, I'm posting a little snippet of her raw sketch of Temmin:




If you want to see this study finished (and you do, believe me), and if you want me to be able to put a down payment on Allis and Issak's study, kick a little extra in the pot this week. Even a dollar helps. Thanks.

whoa! I second NtW. Somewhere between surfer dude and British aristobrat and all sorts of yummy. Hee, Alice even got the sideburns and the wisp of a baby 'stache without any chin whiskers just right Biggrin

It's really rather frightening. I send her a gush of possibly coherent stuff about the character, and she sends back their picture, almost exactly the way the character is in my head. It's disconcerting and exhilarating, and if I had $1000 I'd drop the lot on Alice with everyone's description and say "Go for it." I don't, but I do have about 1000 readers (at least) who could pony up a buck, and then I WOULD have $1000 to drop on Alice and we'd all get pictures! Smile

Is it wrong to be my own story's biggest fangirl? What an ego. sigh.

I showed the picture to Sir, without telling him who or what it was, and he immediately said, "Whoa, it's Temmin!"

ETA: Alice's first sketch was of Temmin as he probably looked at Whithorse, when Jenks let him get away with looking like a stable hand most of the day. He is scruffy and adorable. I had her clean him up for his Tremont Keep look, because he didn't look all that princely. Adorable, but not princely.

This is the boy who's been living in my head since I started reading. And now I'm going to have one of those perhaps pseudo-pompous moments where I hope I will not suck up too much: I think it speaks really well of your work that everyone's picturing him so clearly, and in such a similar way, without ever having had an excruciatingly detailed description of every bit of him. Means you really got Temmin across well, to all of us, even though we're a pretty diverse crowd. Loevs.

The muttonchops and barely-there mustache are so perfect.

Especially if you've never sent any. Send me a buck. That's alls I'm asking. A single dollar from folks who haven't donated before. Right now most of what I'm getting is going to Alice, with a little for advertising.

There are sideburn type things? Or something? A little scruffier then I'd see Jenks allowing Biggrin

They are quite the fashion in Tremont. Temmin tends to ruffle himself a lot.
