Aside from my other novel series project the Chronicles of Loreithia (LoreithianChronicles ) I had some other novel ideas in the works. Lacrimosa started out as a collaboration with a friend but I decided I would continue to work on it here and there. The original title I wanted for it was either ‘Fallen’ or ‘Forsakened’, but Fallen is already taken by Lauren Kate and I kind of wanted something better than just ‘Forsakened’. In Latin the word Lacrimosa means weeping, as to cry.
Lacrimosa will be a lot different to my fantasy story in LoreithianChronicles as it will be set in modern day earth, however the world would be a lot darker and would have a stark comparison. It’s set in a sort of Gothic Victorian era and everyone has to fight for their lives every day, only the rich and powerful have standards of comfortable living.
The title character Victoria, is a lost fallen angel who has lost her memory and on earth tries to find her way back to heavens arms and on the way finds the truths about herself and her creation and has a romance with someone who doesn’t seem to be what he appears to be.
This novel project like my others is a work in progress, I just wanted to see what would look good as the project cover and if I ever self-publish.. perhaps this could be it’s cover?
here's more in the series of avengers gowns! here’s iron man and hulk. hulk was such a struggle…oy.
a little on my thought process: for iron man, i mainly wanted him to stand in contrast to the more demure dress of captain america, something that would translate both his suit and his flashy personality. i will admit to putting a lot more gold in it than his actual suit has, but i reeeeaaallly like the red and gold together! XD
and hulk...eeee, hulk went through SO MANY revisions. i decided on this dress for a few reasons. i liked the fluffy boa as a representation of his broad, hulky shoulders, and the asymmetry is supposed to reflect not only imbalance but the fact that his clothes basically get ripped to shreds every time hulk joins the party. i also wanted it to represent in a way how banner relates to the hulk, how banner is such a reserved guy while this hulk is just this darkness inside him.
hopefully, i can get black widow and hawkeye finished next! hawkeye's is another toughy. XP
