Half Turn Dragon Sketch by CherokeeGal1975
Half Turn Dragon Sketch
Just a dragon sketch. Not that great either. I have been noticing that most of my drawings are in profile.  This is mainly because when I draw something for reference I want to see as much of it as possible and intend later to draw it again later in different posses.  I haven't gotten  around to that yet as far as my creatures go.  But I will get there eventually.  This is a drawing of my Spikemane dragon.  You can find a full color version of him in my gallery if you want.  I don't think this one turned out as well as I had liked.  The symmetry of his face is off.  Maybe with practice I will get better at that.  My Spikemane dragons live on the world of Eden and with the right training and saddle, they can be ridden and directed with knees and voice commands.  They are about the size of a Belgian draft horse and very intelligent. If you wish to learn more about my world of Eden, check out my book Eden Symbiotic on which is available both in Kindle and in paperback book. :D…
Design Mess 2 by CherokeeGal1975
Design Mess 2
Just another work in progress.  I am correcting and enhancing this drawing with MS Paint.  As a consequence, I realize that my gallery might become a bit repetitive for a while.  I will do my best to remedy this eventually.  I am also considering doing a very short animation by hand using my own skill and only using the computer to scan and get my drawing "moving".  I do not know when I will be able to do this, but the idea is there and I have been doing a bit of research on the subject on YouTube.  Turns out that YouTube is not perfect, but it does contain a lot of useful information on all manner of subjects.  But, I do not want to try to focus my attention in too many directions at once.  This one is actually my second attempt at doing a digital fix on this design mess.  My first attempt was a lot of trial and error, getting to know MS Paint and really beginning to understand how to use the program.  I also found out that MS Paint does not do whorl patterns very easily.  One of those whorls can take well over an hour or more, sometimes days depending on how much time I have. 
Also, If anyone is interested, I am a published author.  Eden Symbiotic is available for sale on…

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 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...
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 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.

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!
