Mia, daughter of none by copperhead2121 Mia, daughter of none by copperhead2121
I have worked for THREE WHOLE WEEKS on this one-it took forever to get perfect. I'm sure the scan isn't as good as the original, but please open to full frame.

Mia is a charcter from the Stephen King book, Dark Tower VI:Wolves of the Calla. She is one personality of Sussanah Dean, who posesses many. (Odetta Holmes, Detta Walker, you get the idea.) Weird, I know, but if you're looking for normal in King, you're looking in the wrong place. The reason her legs look sort of funny is because she lost them below the knee. This is a copy of Bernie Wrightson's illustration; I wish I could take credit for the design, because I love it so much.

It is nice, however if i may...

I would suggest more contrast for starters. Its harder to make out as light as it is.

just adjust it in photoshop or re-scan it, bringing down the brightness and increasing the contrast.

it's horrible, actually-my first REALLY good drawing, and it doesn't scan properly. I just started drawing about 7 or so months ago. I'm very new at this. :shrug:

I like this piece. Nice attention to detail and there is a depth to it that pulls you in...my only wish is that is was a little darker.
But it's really, really good as it is.

It is darker-at least in real life. Scanners are evil. Thanks so much for the comment!

Thank YOU! Finally, a Dark Tower fan who can appriciate Susannah. Have you read Wolves of the Calla yet? We must palaver for there are other worlds than these. Or was it this? I think it was.

I'm glad you liked the drawing-I worked REALLY hard on it-I'm new at the drawing thing. And thakee-sai for the watch! I see you are a new Deviant, but a good one-I liked the rose, and I will check out your gallery as soon as I can. Welcome to DA!

...But no one can know for sure, for the world has moved on and time has grown strange...

It's always fun to meet Dark Tower-crazies :)

I know how much effort go into these things. I've tried and tried and tried drawing one of the little bald doctors in Insomnia. I've got the whole design in my head, I know what they should look like but it just won't translate on paper. So, all the more credit to you, well-done illustrations are quite an accomplishment :thumbsup:

I only copied an illustration, but it was stressful, man. I'm only drawing again NOW-I had to relax. ;)

Yeah, Dark Tower nuts are great....I haven't read Insomnia yet, but my friend tells me it's awesome...I've only read about a third of his books. Shameful, I know.

Do you mind my asking who your avatar is?

If you worked on it for three weeks, it would be just as good. Effort, not talent, created Mia.

I honestly wouldn't be able to. I'd probably do an artistic stick figure... :P
