Drawings of Edenbrooke

So a while back I drew some characters from a great book I read called Edenbrooke, by Julianne Donaldson.  I sent the drawings to her via email and she loved them!  Knowing how much a drawing of a character can inspire the mind, I decided to draw some more for her.  It was great fun and it helped me to practice more in perfecting my technique.
After many months I've remembered and found some time to post the drawings.  I've drawn a few more for her, but they are characters from her upcoming book called Blackmoore, and because she hasn't released the book yet, I don't want to take her thunder and reveal any characters from it.
You can read about the characters below in Edenbrooke (I know you will enjoy it).
Note: these are interpretations of what I think the characters look like, not the author.

This is the second time I've drawn a horse... not to shabby eh?
My first attempt at a horse I drew just hours before I drew this one (it looks even cooler than this one), but I can't display it here yet.  I'll be using it in one of my books.
Anyway, back to this picture... as you can see it's a little different than the one below.  I didn't like what was around him, so I added a few aspens, clouds and hills behind him.  Taking pictures with my camera, on a cloudy day, makes the artwork look differently than it does in person.  This one turned out too light, but there's not much I can do about that.
After drawing horses, I think I've decided to try my hand at drawing them more often. :)
