Here are a couple of work-in-progress character sketches and logo for The Loch And The Loam, a short story I'm writing and illustrating. Set in a mythical world, the Loch, a sea-dwelling race, and the Loam, a land-dwelling race, are at odds during a long drought. Both groups need water to survive, but when rationing is no longer an option, a war erupts. The main characters, Ocellus and Fleur, find themselves on opposite sides of the battle but soon discover they may have more in common than they thought. Infused with Greek mythology and other fantasy elements, The Loch And The Loam is about facing destiny and finding inner strength. More to come.
