The Works of Janine Saad

She is knows as "Mommy" to those in the Fellowship and also goes by the nickname "J9".  J9's focus is obviously in fantasy and she loves to experiment.  Her media include pencils, inks, and watercolor, while surfaces include ordinary paper, textured paper, and tracing paper (where she might paint on both sides!)

Mina Welles
Janine plays this character in our Castle Falkenstein games.  Janine defines this piece as the regular style of drawing Mina.

The work is pencil on plain paper.
(size 44.6k)

The Castle Falkenstein Play-By-E-Mail game finds Mina meeting up with half of the troupe in a train to Vienna.  The encounter with French Science Minister Jules Verne and the others has done wonders for her.  Mina sheds her coveralls for more radical (scandalous by Victorian standards) garb.

This one is also pencil on plain paper.
