i think this and your other drawings of Wanda and Pet are fantastic! I am actually using them as character sketches if that is okay with you. I'm writing a book and your drawings are all exactly how i pictured some of the characters. I won't put them in the book or anything (i don't think. If i do i would check with you and make sure you got credit)but for now I'm just using them so i have a visual of my characters. Is that okay with you? if i do anything with them i would check with you first and make sure you get credit.

please let me know.

Lovely work. I can just see this as Mel standing in the desert with the wind whipping her hair around her. Would you consider including your art in an archive for The Host? I'm one of the admins at [link] and I can say for sure we'd love to see your art in our gallery.

Again; I think maybe you should leave some credit to Evgueny Atamanov (the picture is called 'breeze' ), not that I'm fully certain that's where you got it from, but the similarities is strikingly.
Your version is great though. And I admit that this was somewhat how I imagined Melanie... just a little more life- full I guess. This looks more like Wanda, considering the dead look in her eyes. I believe that , at least after she met Jared, Melanie had some sort of glee in her face... not that I'm sure of course... XD
