Hello folks!  Today I finished the final concept illustration to my story 'Narlesha the Dragonslayer'!  So ... I will soon share this on DeviantArt: the entire story and all the illustrations.  There are eight chapters, each with three illustrations, and a title page illustration and an end page illustration.  The pictures are at the moment just monochrome, done in pen and pencil.  I'm going to see about getting this to a publisher, in which case I might go for full-colour illustrations done from these concept illustrations.  But as they are I think they give a very good idea, and I hope people will like my silly little story!

Willem van der Merwe
South Africa
I was born in 1972, Pretoria, South Africa. I started painting and drawing at the age of 5. I stopped doing that for a while to study some other fields, but recently I've been getting back into it. I love wildlife and nature but I also paint or draw people. I also paint and draw fantasy creatures or scenes, as well as extinct animals.
