Village Soldier # 7 (illustrated by Nicole Ingram)

This Village Soldier appears in “What I’ve Tasted Of Desire” from Endless Nights.

As Kara reflects on her life she recounts that before she was married her husband was one of the soldiers of the village. There were often village skirmishes and in the winter wolves would sometimes attack the village in desperation, looking for food.

This village soldier is one of the men who helped keep the wolves at bay during the long winter months.

He appears in Endless Nights, in the Desire story on page 3, in panel 2.

Nicole did an awesome job with this portrait. I love that he’s ready for action and appears to be rushing off to kill some wolves. I’ve mentioned this before, but I really like the details added to this character’s clothing. The folds and wrinkles really add a lot of details and the shading between the various shades of brown and tan is also cool. Things like that really impress me because it adds a sense of realism and accuracy to the characters.
