Growing Up Rosewood - June 2016 by The-Ez Growing Up Rosewood - June 2016 by The-Ez
Some character development sketches for The Valiard Mansion. :aww: I'm currently up to my ears in the Valiard animated trailer, doing storyboard tweaks mostly. I'm giddy for storyboarding, so I'm having a great time. :w00t:


CONTEXT
Top left: Portrait sitting of younger Mr and Mrs Rosewood with teeny baby Ruth.
Top right: Little Ruth with baby Adam and their mother's cat, Treasure.
Bottom left: Mrs Rosewood as she appears in Valiard.
Bottom right: Teenaged Ruth and Theodore catch their breath after a traumatic event. I drew this one by candlelight.


:star: Don't forget! You can read the first five chapters of The Valiard Mansion for free right here on dA: fav.me/d5r1bhc

:bulletpink: Auditions for voice actors will open in the very near future. If you're keen to voice one of these characters, keep an eye out for updates! Valiard has an Instagram, Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook — you can Follow us anywhere so you don't miss a thing. All links are on my Profile Page. :D

So Ruth has a particular aversion towards animals, right?
I find it funny how you drew the cat's expression.
"...bitch."

I love seeing pictures of the family. I really like Mrs Rosewood's design too. It's a lovely picture, but poor Ruth and Theo. Do pictures you draw by candlelight turn out differently from others do you think?

I think I mentioned this on Instagram, but Mrs. Rosewood's design reminds me a little bit of Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty.
Also, that cat just cracks me up!:dignity-laugh:

AAAAWWW little Ruth looks like a doll in her mother's arms!! The one of Ruth and Theo is so special, you've really come a long way in terms of drawing expressions. Great work :3

Omigosh, I totally used the baby Ruth pic to beg the folks at Golden Bell to someday explore the possibility of making a toddler Ruth doll. :XD: Imagine the dollsies! Like a toddler Ruth, Theo, and Gangfield! Together as a set! D'awwwww! :giggle:

But, ah, we're not at that point yet.

There'll definitely be action figures, though. :D And plushies! :heart: I'm really excited! :la:

Glad you like! THANK YOU!!! :glomp:
