Moongazer by quirkyblonde Moongazer by quirkyblonde
This piece is based on a novel I recently read that has really stuck with me. It's called "Moongazer" by Marianne Mancusi, and it's probably one of the better sci-fi novels I've read in quite awhile. So I decided to do a tribute to her brilliance by depicting the main character, Skye, shortly after she first arrives in a strange world from modern-day earth.
In other words, she passes out and wakes up in a futuristic earth where everyone lives underground. Obviously, this upsets her...until she meets the hero (a man I'D bang) who confuses her with his girlfriend, Mariah, who betrayed him and the rest of his rebellion.
I don't know how Mancusi pictured Skye (since her physical description is never really given) but this is how I saw her.
Thanks Ms. Mancusi for a brilliant novel - I hope to read a sequel soon!

That book was awesome. They seriously need to make an anime of it, I'd watch it.

thanks - I was so taken with the book I just felt the need to give life to one of the characters. I'm working on a render of Dawn, but I just can get a feel for him.
