Remember the book I mentioned yesterday? The opportunity I thought I had lost because I didn't have time to do the requested revisions? It's not off. Not yet anyway. They want to work with me; I want to work with them. And they want to get a contract finalized soon. So I will do a new character study, but mostly pencil sketches, and not full-blown paintings. Again, normally I wouldn't mind doing the extra work, but with my current schedule, I just can't.
Oh, and one more thing. It's not just one book were talking about. It's 5! I didn't know that.
Don't congratulate me, though. It's not a done deal.
