Today is about escape. I need a little break from the recent bout of insanity that has made a home for itself in my life. As my blog is not only about writing, but fantasy and romance as well, I thought today would be a good day to just drift…
I have a minor obsession with a video game called Dragon Age. The first game in the series is brilliant, and I will hold myself back from commenting further as this is not meant to be a review. I Googled it and found myself on Deviant Art, a wonderful site, where artists take characters they love and create new and beautiful images (and other art, cosplay, fan fiction, etc.). I cannot draw, and that saddens me sometimes when I see images like these. Here are a few from DA that I wish I had on my wall:
As a writer, an image is sometimes a great way to visualize a character or place. If you visit my Facebook page, you’ll find albums of pictures I’ve discovered that help me with each story https://www.facebook.com/RachaelCMarek/photos_albums), and give you a little insight into the types of stories I’m working on. In each, I have one I refer to as a “touchstone”. One image that defines the story in my mind. Enjoy!
Artists displayed: rooster82.deviantart.com, smilika.deviantart.com, and rinacane.deviantart.com
Thank you to them for their beautiful work and for giving this fangirl something more for her obsession and imagination! I’m now inspired to escape by playing a little DA…Have a good day!
