Watercolour.

Sabriel arriving at the front door of the Abhorsen house.

I didn't realize at the time but Mogget looks huge here...!

(My camera says this was taken on Nov 30th 1999...I still can't program it to have the right date, it changes it all the time)

I love the detail and how the colouring doesn't take any of that detail away - there's something almost stained-glass-like about it ^^

I love it. My only qualm is that her hair is supposed to be long, but whatever.

aw thank you, but her hair is described in the book as 'fashionably bobbed' p15 chapter one, it's a detail many miss.

I've always read that, and just realized that I thought "bobbed" meant that her hair was pulled back into some sort of bun. So whenever I sketch her, I have her hair pulled back into some sloppy bun thing.
Time to go revise my sketches >_>

Lovely. I love the overall quality of light and color palette, the shadows of the ivy on the door. Beautiful textures on the stone and brickwork. I love your design for Sabriel herself - you really went for it on her pale pale complexion and it looks fantastic. Also as someone who lives with two rather large cats, Mogget looks like the perfect size to me!

This is pretty good overall (and I love this scene in the book), but in my opinion you've made Sabriel's chin too long and pointed and her jawbone too sharply defined.

Mogget is probably about as big as my Erasmus here. Thank you so much for these, again. My wife adores them!

My cats are just as big too, only I remember Garth Nix saying that Mogget is little. Oh well!

I'm so pleased you like them, did you get the letter too?

Yes, I did. Did you make the paper it was written on? Your calligraphy was most impressive, also.

No the paper is from Paperchase and is made from recycled cotton rag and takes ink really well, only it doesn't like cartridge pens as it draws the ink out too much.
I write calligraphy quite rarely so I wasn't sure if you'd be able to read it!

I'm in love with your style and can't thank you enough for producing works based on Sabriel. There needs to be more Sabriel art out there!
