SDCC - Year of the Writer by juliedillon SDCC - Year of the Writer by juliedillon
This was an illustration I submitted for the "Year of the Writer" article in the SDCC '10 souvenir booklet. :) It was about sci-fi and fantasy writers, as I recall.

To those who say, "How can you write?" I answer, "How can I not, when *this* is what the inside of my head looks like?!" Absolutely phenomenal depiction of a writer's mind and spirit.

danteas Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2011
I'm trying to be one as well any tips for a beginner?
TheUltimateReaper Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2011
I would say that it would be best for you to read. BUT only read stuff you love to read, it will improve your grammer, expose you to new skills and completely help you understand the language.
Another very important thing is to practice! Start a novel and you will soon see what you don't understand and what you aren't using right. Or you can just write whatever. But always be very critical of yourself. Its important to always improve and grow. But don't be too harsh either. Too much negativity will just drag ya' down. Always research writing techniques you don't' know how to use but want to use. DONT FORGET TO PRACTICE!!
The best I can say is that writing is a skill that takes true effort, and true determination. You won't be fantastic overnight, but can still write something fantastic overnight. Each writer is different, and each style is unique. By being passionate and working on what you know should be improved for yourself you should be able to go as far as you are willing to run.
In the end, just write. That's really the key. The road can be harsh and grueling, but they say following your ambitions, interests, and/or dreams is worth it.

thank you so much. It's hard to find good advice these days but I will practice practice and practice.

Love this. You are a really good illustrator. :)
Virusir Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2011
This might sound very weird, considering the fact I have seen this painting more than once, but I am in love with this illustration of yours. I'm a writer that loves to scribble words of fantasy as a hobby. In a way, I feel just like that man standing in the center of the illustration, giving life into a imagination thought, feeding it and strengthening it with nothing more than words.

I'm going to favorite it, because this represents what all writers do with their works - convert inspiring ideas into living creatures.

A beautiful tribute to all those minds who contain and let loose new worlds we have never seen before...

Prose aside, lovely job! The colors are fantastic and the concept even more-so.
galegal77 Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2010
At first glance I saw a beautiful dragon being formed by hundreds of pages of writing, forming its every detail both physically and (I can only assume) in the whiting itself. A seccond look showed hidden images of a cat and a town in the backdrop. Truly beautiful in both form and subtlety :D
