this is newest character image. i just finished it a few minutes ago.

sumi-e ink on illustration board

I have been working on the idea and story for another book for a long time. It basically follows the life of a WWII veteran after his years in the war, showing how his life changed, and how normal, everyday things bring the war back to him everyday and how he copes with life, eventually accepting that it is something he must live with along with trying to make his wife understand that she can never understand. the final chapter of the book follows the final days of his life, as he realizes that the loss of his wife, is truly the downfall of him, physically and emotionally, and that although in his earlier years life had bad things in it, he realizes that there would be, no longer, anything good for him. As he takes his own outlook and life into his hands he takes the final bus ride of his life to grow backwards to a young man and meet his wife all over again to live their lives the way they should have been.

i am now story boarding, slowly but surely, and doing practice images and organizing multiple family war story and PTSD instances that will make up my book (images and story line.)

above is a practice image i created trying to find a good style and inspiration to make the images.
