Arthur and Melanie

 

Melanie and Kalyptra, a Dryosaurus, take Arthur Denison on a tour of the plant world, from Dinotopia: A Land Apart from Time.

This looks like watercolor, but it's actually transparent oil over a pencil drawing, with just a few touches of opaque white.

Have you ever talked about how you name characters, and I've just missed it?

Authors' choices of names - do you go for "hidden meaning" or character traits or??

Anyway, the painting is evocative: light and humanity.

It's amazing how oil can look like watercolor or gouache when used this way.

You can get oil colors THIS transparent? Whow!
Okay, your art blows me away every time I see it, but this time the blow came from an unexpected direction!
