I receive book recommendations quite often, but one series is suggested much more than any other, by far. So, even though I have been slowly making my way through a couple of other series of books, I decided to finally begin reading Bared to You by Sylvia Day.

Although I haven’t yet completed the entire book, I’m already really enjoying it so far. The variety of characters and how they interact is realistic yet never mundane. Out of them all, I have to say that I really enjoy Eva! She’s full of strength and still has a playful sense of humor, even though she’s had to endure and work through a very difficult past.

Of course it’s also fun to see the relationship between Eva and Gideon develop (even with all the bumps in the road along the way).

So, instead of choosing a particular scene from the portion of the book I’ve already completed, I decided to conjure up a simple illo of Gideon post-workout at his namesake gym! That’s not to say I haven’t come across plenty of scenes just itching to be illustrated! 😉

    Sorry Victoria but there something missing in this illo that doesn’t show Gideon to me, he is more bulky, his jaw more square and something in him that screams (like Eva says) dark and dangerous, but so sexy. I really loved how you draw Christian and Gabriel.. Gideon not so much. Maybe if you keep on reading you’ll shape him better in your mind. Again.. sorry. Please don’t get upset, wasn’t going to kiss your a*# and say: “Liked it”, when I didn’t. I really love the serie Crossfire and my mind is so set when it come to it. Ok.. bye!

      Hi Ana! I’ve often noted that my illos are just my own interpretation of the books I’ve read. Everyone has their own unique images in their minds, which is what makes reading so much fun! 😉
