Women's History Month - Betty Zane

I know it is the last day but in celebration of Women's History month I thought I would post a sketch for a painting I am working on. It tells the story of Betty Zane, who saved Fort Henry from the British toward the end of the Revolutionary War. The fort was out of powder and 16 year old Betty dashed from the fort to a cabin some 60 yards away to get a keg of powder. She dashed back to the fort at full speed while the ground exploded around her with the shots of the enemy. She made it without injury and the fort was saved.

So here is the final one for Adam and Eve. I hope I can do more to develop my take on the story but we'll see what time permits.

Graphic Novel Time

Here are the first 3 pages of a graphic novel version of Adam and Eve that I am developing. Let's look at the thumbnail planning and the cleaned up pencil work. I wanted to get right through creation to the interaction with the serpent. I subscribe to Genesis as a poetic telling of the fall of man (that's not to say these events didn't happen) and so I want to visually tell it in the way I feel it was intended when Moses recorded this revelation.
