Beauty in the Black 2
This drawing is done by hand, but I did a bit of a digital fix on the "lights" with Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6.  Now their floating symbiotes are more visible and brighter than before.  I am considering further digital fixes later when I have more time.  Just fixing the background so it is as pitch black as I first intended it to be.  The people I will leave alone...well at least until I figure out how to make hair and skin tones.  Still haven't figured that out yet.   
To learn more about the glowing creatures are, check out my novel Eden Symbiotic on Amazon.com! :D

Silvermane Sketch by CherokeeGal1975
Silvermane Sketch
This is the original sketch before I started to mess with it with Autodesk.  I drew the lines dark so my scanner would not crop off chunks of my character.  It does not like black and white sketches.  Not my best work, but that almost doesn't matter.  What matters is the end result.  I can't draw very well with just my laptop's mouse, so I draw by hand and I plan to use my computer to color over it so there is no trace of the original sketch.  In fact, I will delete it and leave the colored version behind.  Love the layers feature on Autodesk!  I can see a lot of possibilities with it.

Silvermane Experiment by CherokeeGal1975
Silvermane Experiment
Just working with layering to see if I could use a sketch, paint over it, then delete the sketch, leaving the finished painting behind.  I drew everything dark so my scanner would not chop it to bits, it doesn't like black and white sketches and it took me a while to figure out how to prevent that from happening.  This is Silvermane in his water form.  I was considering a comic or an animation of him and his mate Violet when I have more time and can buy the latest version of Autodesk Sketchbook Pro.  I also have a written story brewing in my head for sometime in 2016.  For now, I am just doing sketches and experiments with my program that I just got.  The sketch is not that great, I realize, but it is not supposed to be.  The shape is what matters.  The end drawing will not show this sketch at all.  I am not sure if I can take on any large and long term projects just yet.  I am still going to school and much of my free time is taken up with homework.  Eventually I will get there. :D  Because I do not have a electronic sketchpad for my computer will have to keep experimenting with hand drawings and sketches. Eventually I hope to get a sketchpad so I can just draw on my computer when I want to.  This will be especially important if I get the Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 7 that has the animation feature in it.  I can't figure out how to draw with just my laptop's mouse, best I can do is very rough sketches and simple backgrounds like this one.

Water Background by CherokeeGal1975
Water Background
Undersea background.  Free to use, just make sure to give me credit for making it.  I used Autodesk Sketchbook Pro 6 to draw it. 

Also I would like to invite you to come and visit my gallery.  I am also a published author and my book Eden Symbiotic is available on Amazon.com in both paperback book and in Kindle.

Here is the synopsis:

Molly Langley willingly shares her life and body with a symbiotic life form on a distant planet called Eden. Her world is discovered one seemingly ordinary morning by a ship of explorers from Earth that mistakenly believe that they had discovered a lost human colony. This chance meeting leads to a revealing of Earth’s hidden history and strange connection to Molly’s home world and creates an open alliance between Earth and Eden. This same chance encounter also exposes Molly, her family and her world to an unexpected danger from a failing company that is exploiting another alien race called the Ozbeen who had inadvertently created Shining Ones a few thousand years ago. Molly and three others of her family, all of which are willing hosts to the juvenile larvae of the Shining Ones, are captured and taken to a planet of unknown name and location to extract the DNA of their symbionts. In order for them to be able to return home, Molly and her family must join forces with a group of escaped prisoners, spies and rebels and find a way to bring down the shield that is trapping them on the planet, telepath home to let their people know where they are so her people can bring down the company once and for all. 

My book is about nine dollars on Amazon Prime.  Come and check it out, bring home a copy today!

This is the new cover of my book Eden Symbiotic.  I recently changed it by adding my own art and added a cover page with the title and the design you see here under it.  I checked the story itself for flaws I missed and fixed them all, did not change the plot.  I also typed in that my book is copy righted by the US Copyright Office...in the wrong spot I realize, but I could not figure out how to do it the right way around without changing the page count.  The price is $10.00 for the book and $2.99 for the Kindle version. 
Here is a copy of the description of my novel...

Hello! I am a quarter Cherokee who likes to write stories, draw and admire other people's art as well. I like also to communicate with all kinds of people, so please don't be shy, type away! I will answer in kind as soon as possible! I aspire to one day be a published writer, until then I content myself with posting my works here. Who knows? Maybe by next year you will see my name in the book stands!

"I sent an angel to watch over you last night but it came back.
I asked, "why?"
The angel said, "angels don't watch over angels."
Twenty one angels are IN your world.
Ten of them are sleeping, Ten are playing, one is reading this message.
Send this to ten friends including me.
I guess if I don't get it back I'm not one of them. As soon as you get five replies someone you love will quietly surprise you.
Please read, not joking. God has seen you struggling with something. God says it's over. A blessing is coming your way. If you believe in God send this message on. Please don't ignore it. You are being tested. God is going to fix two things BIG tonight in your favor. DROP everything and pass it on. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't break this chain. Send this to 14 friends in 10 minutes. It's not that hard."

I don't know how to send that one forward.  Don't know if I can.  Jerk firewalled my site here and I don't know how long I can stay.
