Character Renditions


 

The following sketches are renditions of fictional characters in the Collective Obsessions Saga by Deidre Dalton. The images provided inspiration to the author during the writing process, but remain fictional in context.

 

Character images were obtained from open source projects, most notably Wikipedia, most of which are included in public domain. They were then altered into pastel-type illustrations using the software program Smart Photo Editor. The images represent the author's fictional characterizations, or rather the "outer shell" of each character, but are not indicative of true personality traits of actual people.
