Uncle Andrew

I told you there would be more posts! Here's a drawing I did rather quickly all the way back in March. As the title expresses, this is a concept sketch of what the character Uncle Andrew from The Magician's Nephew might look like. I tried to convey in the drawing a wizened old man who was somewhat likable at first, while trying to hint at the diabolical evil which possessed him. The first image is the original and the second I manipulated with GIMP to make him more historically accurate. Tell me what you think.

I really like it. I am also a Gimp user. Do you have Photoshop?

And yes, historically people did have thicker eyebrows. :P

No, I don't have Photoshop. Where could I get one and how much is the cost?

It has been a while since I purchased but if you qualify you can get educational discounts when buying new. If you are homeschooled they accept HSLDA as your "school". Through that, the latest version of Photoshop (CS4) is still $200 though. Used you can probably get an educational version of CS2 for $70 on ebay but you have to be careful to make sure it is a legal copy.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions.
God Bless.
