Frasers Ridge by plutoplus1 Frasers Ridge by plutoplus1
Finally, some more fan art for Diana Gabaldon's Outlander novels! I love Jamie and Claire, and when I read this scene in one of the books, I had such a clear idea of it in my mind that I had to do some art for it. It's not 100% accurate to the description in the novel, though I can't remember exactly what book it was in, or where...

**Slight spoiler warning**

I do remember, though, that this is the scene where Jamie and Claire are traversing the backwoods of North Carolina, looking for a place to build their home. Jamie finds what will soon be called Frasers Ridge, a place dotted with wild strawberries, the fruit having personal meaning to him in regards to his surname. Claire is only supposed to be wrapped in a cloak, but the pose I wanted was very difficult to find in stock, so I settled for the sitting fully clothed. Also, I know her hair should be more curly. Sorry :) I am assuming Jamie was in his hunting plaid, which is why it's sort of a greenish brown. And I think it was morning in the scene, perhaps later in the day. Either way, I hope people like this and it inspires people to read (and reread) these incredible books!

EDIT: Thanks to those who told me where this scene is; Drums of Autumn, page 257.

Comments are always appreciated!

****Question: What do people think of the shadow under Jaime? I just noticed it looks kinda bad...which way should it go? Thanks!

Wow, spectacular. As for the shadow... well, the tree's shadow makes it seem like the sun is almost directly overhead. Jamie should match the tree...

Yeah, I noticed that too. I've just been too lazy and busy to fix some of the problems.
