𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 The Rook 𝘣𝘺 𝘋𝘢𝘯𝘪𝘦𝘭 𝘖’𝘔𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘦𝘺

Myfanwy Thomas wakes in a park with two black eyes and no memory of anything, even her own name. The name is provided by the letter she helpfully left in her own pocket. Following a trail of clues from her former self, Myfanwy tries to figure out who tried to kill her while faking her way through her job -- not easy since it turns out she's a high-ranking official of a supernatural MI6.

𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 True Grit 𝘣𝘺 𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘭𝘦𝘴 𝘗𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘪𝘴

It’s hard to pick a favorite character from True Grit because what makes the book so much fun is the unlikely alliance that forms between the three crotchety main characters: fourteen-year-old Mattie Ross, bent on avenging her murdered father, Texas ranger La Boeuf, and Rooster Cogburn, a drunken, one-eyed man whom Mattie hires anyway because he is, in her estimation, a man of true grit.

Richard Parker
from Life of Pi by Yann Martel
I ended up doing most of this one in Procreate; the ellipse tool & textures were too handy to pass up.

Pi Patel is crossing the Pacific with his family & their zoo when their ship sinks. Pi makes it to a life boat but he is the sole human survivor, and when he sees the tiger, Richard Parker, struggling through the waves, he tosses the buoy to him, only considering later what it will mean to be stranded on the ocean together.

Bernadette Fox 𝘧𝘳𝘰𝘮 Where’d You Go, Bernadette 𝘣𝘺 Maria Semple.
A creative woman at odds with her environment, Bernadette is an agoraphobic architect who’s suffered design block for years. Not only has she failed to finish a single house, chaos on a grand scale follows in her wake. When all her troubles converge, she pulls a vanishing act worthy of her reputation and then her real adventures begin.

Doing my own fictional character themed prompts this year. First up, Amelia Bedelia.
Whenever the other characters fall upon Amelia Bedelia's scrumptious pie, they never think to offer Amelia a single bite! This has bothered me for DECADES. So I drew Amelia sitting down after a hard day of wreaking havoc, finally enjoying a secret piece.
