So, I know I said I wouldn’t share any more images or news related to my story, but an artist I commissioned finally started working on Elena. Now, I was going to ask him to cancel my order, but I waited for this slot for like months. I really love his artwork, so I’m excited to bring Elena to life, anime style. When I showed one of my friends the sketch, she said, ”See! Why wouldn’t you want to keep bringing this character to life?”
Honestly, it was a good question, no a great question! I didn’t have an answer for her. Maybe it’s my own failure or disappointment that makes me feel I can’t do Elena justice. Or maybe it’s a pride thing I have going on, who knows!
I always tried to be transparent with my readers – even though now I find it pointless – so here is the rough sketch for Elena. As I said, this artist style is more anime like. I plan to get a realistic portrait of Elena later, but for now, I wanted to follow the same theme as Assan’s and Seidon’s pictures.

I love anime, and it has greatly inspired me to write. It’s so overwhelming seeing one of my female characters in anime form. Someone once told me I’m so passionate about writing, but I guess the main word now is “was”. Anyway, once I get the finished design, I’ll post it!
