    Lil and Millie -- as pencil sketches

    A few years ago in my Landroval roleplay, my character Mirkir Quaywright, a capable pencil-sketch artist, was helping raise a young orphan girl about five or six years old. So he wrote a small children's reading primer book to read to her, until she could learn to read it herself. The player who played the orphan girl, Magdala, helped with the writing (actually most of the text is hers). But neither of us could draw at all. So we spent a long day setting up screenshots in the North Downs (time-consuming as she was only level 10), with help from the player of Elsalyn, to make the book. (You can see the screenshot version here.)

    Well, a couple of years ago I started taking art lessons. I decided it might be interesting to re-do them as actual pencil sketches, with the text integrated in a childish handwriting, just as Mirkir might have drawn it. I therefore hereby present Lil and Millie, as originally envisioned. Each image is also a link to the full-sized version, in case the forum is shrinking them.

    your story is sooo cute, and you sure can draw,too!! I am not much of an artist when it comes to drawing at all, but appreciate others artwork. I believe we are all artists , just in different ways. Some of us draw, others sew, or cook, ...the list goes on. But I really enjoyed your story, it is just like a real child's primer!! Good work!

    Cute work! Could make a really enjoyable & whimsical quest with a brand new style. (Not another kill 10 boars quest).
