Question of Time characters by suburbanbeatnik Question of Time characters by suburbanbeatnik
I did these sketches after finishing a big commission, which I shall be posting soon. These are the characters from my time travel/paranormal romance, "A Question of Time." Here's the synopsis:

Without knowing why, writer Celia Cavalotti finds herself thrown back in time to 1989, where she meets her beloved high school teacher, Alan Forrest. Can she use this strange opportunity to prevent his tragic and untimely death-- or is this even happening? Why can't she seem to stay in one place and time?

So, clockwise from top left, is Alan Forrest in 1989, Celia in 2010, Celia aka "Cici" when she was fifteen years old in 1989 (complete with a copy of OMNI magazine and an off-the-shoulder Flashdance-style shirt with a flying triangle pattern), her classmate Kevin DeSantos, and then Alan himself again in 2010.

Another sketch of Alan is here: [link] (Yes, he does look like Bruce Boxleitner in his 1980s nerd attire from Tron, though I changed him slightly for this character-- his hair is blond, and his jaw is a touch different.)

Fans of "Question of Time" (yes I know, all five of you), you can check out this special themed playlist on Youtube! Enjoy: [link]

Thank you! I'm finishing editing the story right now. When my friends finish their fanart for the story, I'd like to do a blog post about that and put an excerpt up for people to read. :)

It is! Have you listened to my youtube playlist yet? It has lots of wonderful (and cheesy) late '80s songs on it.

I liked Debbie Gibson a lot back in the '80s, but I was really young, and I had no taste... I liked Samantha Fox a lot as well. :P

LOL yes. I can't away from the LoM influence! (I really like the American version of the show, but it went downhill pretty quickly in the middle of the season.)

Anyway, thanks for the interest in my story. It's being edited right now-- when I have a final draft in hand, I'm going to start sending it out to various epubs. Wish me luck!

The US LoM was great until about halfway though the first season. Then it became really awful. :/

Would you really like to read "Question of Time"? I can send it to you when I'm done revising it, if you like. :)

Love the 80's looks!! I agree w/ previous commenters about the "Brad" thing! lol. Though I wouldn't have thought about it on my own.

Neither would I! You know what I need to do next... an Alan Forrest pin-up, with his shirt falling off and him adjusting his glasses sexily. Haha!

Damnit Janet! I kind of agree with MrsGrimaWormtongue, he does feel a bit Brad. I like seeing how Cici compares to Celia too, nice transition!

Aww Alan is so handsome. Reminds me a bit of Brad from Rocky Horror. I think I went to school with Cici, she's such a cute geek. And wow Alan aged really well. Now do a sketch of their daughter!

Aww, comment love! Thank you! Alan is a pretty foxy guy, that's for sure. And he does kind of give off a Brad Majors vibe. :love:
