This morning, I got a wonderful surprise! The artist I got to commission Elena sent me the drawing with her base color.
Again, it’s so strange seeing my character coming to life. Now since I’ve seen her in color, I’m inspired to write her story again. Once the artist completes Elena’s drawing, I’ll splice the following images together:
Seidon x Elena
Assan x Elena
Elena alone in an 18th-century setting
Ahh!! I can’t wait to do the drawings. Here she is with the base color:

I was thinking of having her a little darker, but she is slightly modeled off Alicia Keys. For those who like the picture, yes, she is biracial. Ah! I can’t wait to do the splice of her and Assan, and her and Seidon. I felt the artist did a great job capturing her innocence. Sigh…I put so much effort into my stories, but it never pays off.
Anyway, I hope you like the picture!
