Queen Sapphire and Her Friends

Since I was having a hard time writing The Unicorn Queen, I decided to make some more drawings of the characters and share them with you. This first one is Sapphire, wearing her Badge of Majesty, given to her by the former Queen, Midnight Star.

I have a question about the Badge of Majesty. Would you say it is a necklace or a breastplate? When I said breastplate in my sample chapter, someone on AW said that it creates a confusing image when I say it lifted off her shoulders. So, what do you think?

This is Ruby, Sapphire's older sister. She was also in the group Midnight Star was training to see who would become the next ruler and Ruby is not jealous that Sapphire was chosen over her. She always does her best to help her sister in any way she can. Both she and Sapphire are first introduced in the first story, The New Queen's Challenge.

Here is Levan. He is a castle guard and becomes great friends with Sapphire. I don't really know a lot about his character yet, but I do know that he would do anything to protect Sapphire, even if it meant laying down his own life. Levan is introduced in Book Two: A Silent Killer.

Last but certainly not least is Kila. She is a very sweet unicorn, quiet and controlled, but is a wonderful fighter. She is eternally loyal to Sapphire because the Queen saved her life. Kila considers Sapphire her best friend. Readers will meet Kila in the third adventure, The Marred Unicorn.

as the artist ;) i can see the progression in every drawing. i like the new background style. it's fancy. :D and i'm not sure how proportion works on horses, but you're alot closer than i am. (that's why i never draw them)

you gave away the story on that last unicorn...the title says it all esp since he would even die to protect her...? a little more subtle please! you want people to read it, although i'm sure you have a more comlicated plot than that. :)
wow i got some attitude tonight! ...this morning? oopsy! (like i always say i should be banned from the computer after 10pm)

Haha, you are WRONG! Levan doesn't die in the story. Not in one.

Thanks for the artist encouragement. Btw, how's that secret coming?

the secret is currently buried under the ipod, cd cases and tic not well. I'll get back to it soon, I'm kinda obsessed with poi and it's taking all my time...even away from school, which is physics, which i love. you know..useless facts that make me sound smart! it's fun! speed of sound? 344m/s (770mph) (in air at 20'C) and gravity? 9.8m/s
