Writing, Again: Part V - Visual Inspiration 2

Writing on Book Five is chugging along nicely ...

I'm beginning to worry about length a bit, though.  I can't decide if I want to press ahead and worry about it later or if I should just stop what I'm doing and rein it in.  Storywise, it's a trilogy's worth of stuff crammed into one book (origin stories, seeds of revolution, revolution & exodus).  I don't know.  I'm still thinking about it.

In the meantime, here's some more lame art.

Moving ahead to Book Five, the mechanical Cylons are called something else for a stretch and I wanted them to be very different than anything seen before.  (They were briefly glimpsed in an Ares' flashback in Book Three).  Here they are:

More to come next week.  (Book Five stuff; not crappy drawings.)
