Previous Toss Next

This image of the girl (who is going to remain unnamed for a long, long time) takes her in a slightly new direction. All the previous concept images have either shown her with family or doing other rather normal stuff, and the plot of the first book leaves her pretty passive, swept along in the waves of the events surrounding her.
However, she does have a sassy side, and is not an unattractive adult woman. I made a very conscious choice in the story of the first book to make gender unimportant- half the cast could be swapped and it wouldn't affect the story. But as I lock down on how the Yarboa and Invasoren handle gender issues, gender will become more important, particularly as the girl's life story unfolds.
I'm not 100 percent sure where the apple came from. It seemed like a good idea when I was sketching this down. Yes, that's Arabic running down her shawl-thing (I don't have a Yarboa font made... yet). Translate it your own dang self.
