I’ll have to post a journal later Tuesday, due to trying to work on and submit SHARDS as young adult fairytale adaptation to a few prospective agents… and the fact that I am nursing a 2 week old wild jackrabbit at home and it is also taking up as much time as my kids, husband, job, and household chores. Eh. Worth it. Journal to come soon!
I am on vacation but decided to post this look at the dwarfs pre- and post-shard-influenced. It isn’t always easy to see the character designs through the journal entries. Here we have a few dwarf faces and the overall look of the dwarfs, plus what they look like with their gas masks. Zwei is prominently showcased.
Fun Fact: Each dwarf in SHARDS has a mask and an aura reflecting their particular representative sin (Sloth, Lust/Extravagance, Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Wrath, Pride) but each one in their original story would be considered representative of the opposite of the sin they reflect. SlothEins for example would be very active. Lust/Extravagance/Zwei has a very introverted personality and is shy, Envy/Drei is perfectly happy being who he is on the inside, Gluttony/Vier is usually very mindful of others and very moderate in his food consumption, Greed/Funf is extremely helpful and always wants to put them before himself, Wrath/Sechs is a bit grumbly and disagreeable but quick to apologize for any slight. I can’t mention Pride juuuust yet, but you’ll see. His current form is the opposite of everything he stands for.
Happy Independence Day!
This pic is brought to you by Alice, whose art skill is improving. I’m sure the inspiration behind this comes from wondering about the relationship between Goldie and Cindy.
Some of you may also be wondering about the relationship of Cindy and Goldie but I can only say at the moment that it isn’t quite what it appears. They are, as fictional characters, bound by the stories which they are entwined in. More of that will come up in Chapter 4.
