This is the 11th page of my graphic novel. I render in Poser Pro 2010, then do extensive postwork in Photoshop. I use Comic Life Deluxe for the actual composition of my novel.

The Lighthouse Prop that I'm using here is my own creation.

In the year 1838, the lovely Swiss governess, Esther Abrabanel, agrees to conceive and bear the child of an anonymous English landowner, in return for which he'll pay her £500.

He's the scion of an ancient Anglo-Saxon royal house, and feels the need to produce an heir to his line. However, since his wife is consumptive, and after ten years of marriage has proved barren, he feels an ever-present desperation and frustration in the fulfillment of his destiny.
Miss Abarbanel, is a secret crypto-jewess born to an illustrious line of scholars and sages, but who finds herself living in an alien society. She is also a fiercely loyal daughter, who is in desperate need to obtain a large sum of money in order to effect her father's release from debtor's prison, where he's incarcerated for another man's misdeeds. However, since she's of an independent and wayward nature, the very idea of contracting and surrendering to the yoke of a loveless marriage, just for its financial convenience and security is totally abhorrent.

Thus their mutual needs brings them together. They meet for a week in a hotel on the coast of Normandy, during that time their relationship gradually meta-morphs from the cold the mechanics of commercial contract sex, to a mutual desire, and then to a deep and abiding love. However, in spite of this awakened feeling between them, they must part ways on their return to England, ostensibly never to see each other again.

At the birth of their child (a daughter),she surrenders her as agreed to the midwife to hand over to the father. However, unlike as agreed, she can neither forget her child, nor the man that she bore it to. Seven years pass, when one day she arrives at a remote Sussex estate, to be the governess of a young girl. The father of the girl, Edwin Ironside (a lineal descendant of the great Edmund Ironside, king of Mercia), turns out to be the same anonymous landowner who met with her years before in the Normandy hotel, and the child Deborah is their daughter. So Esther has to be her own daughter's governess.

Very nicely done David! I hope you're rendering these in high enough resolutions so that you can print the final outcome in a real graphic novel and make some money off it. (If that's allowed that is.)

I like the raised hand in the first image. It says much effectively. Not sure about the priority of prayers at such a time. A little "earthly" assistance would be more practical. I find that picture visually a little confusing.
