Art in spurts

Journal Entry: Tue Jul 22, 2014, 6:14 PM
It's been a while since I posted and here I go with a bunch of stuff all at once.  What can I say - these days I tend to work in spurts. Last summer I managed to write a novella which got published as an ebook (so stoked about that - working on the second). It was very exciting to work with an honest to goodness editor, and I am very happy with the results.

Since then I went on a tentacle drawing spree, most of which I have now posted here. I drew them freehand with pencil, then inked them with various fine pointed black felt/gel pens - I believe I bought out my local shops of their selections trying to find just the right ones. Then scanned the drawings to colour them in using Corel Draw X5. I had a grand time learning all sorts of ways to colour using the program which I had never tried before. 

If you are in the mood for a steamy story about a Finnish vampire who meets a British scientist who bears more than a passing resemblance to Sherlock then take a read at my first published work: 

The Study of Blood in Winter

In Helsinki, Julian meets Danika who awakens long repressed desires and dark new lusts, neither of which subside when he learns she is not human.

Young, eminent haematologist, Dr Julian Victor Swansea, has travelled from his home in Britain to the University of Helsinki in Finland to work on the research that has been his life’s fascination—blood. Specifically, he hopes to find a cure for his own haemophilia. At first everything goes as planned. Every day is filled with work, no distractions, merely the puzzle of blood to solve. Then, a late night walk, a chance encounter and a borrowed cigarette later, Dr Julian’s life takes a turn he could never have predicted. Then again, who could have predicted a seductive and mysterious woman like Danika?

Pale, beautiful and openly lustful, Danika quickly turns Julian’s life upside down and inside out when she reveals that she is a vampire…and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. One dark secret is followed by another until he doesn’t know what to believe anymore.

Will Julian accept this new reality and allow himself to be carried away by love? Will Danika allow this human into her heart?

Thank you, I'll think about it. from browsing through I don't see any indication of Corel Draw or any Corel tutorials. I know it's not the most popular of programs but I cannot be the only person not into the Adobe stuff. :D
