Time Traveler Freak Out

I just did this drawing as an illustration for a friend's "fan-fiction" story set in the Deryni world of Katherine Kurtz. It will be privately published in a small-circulation fan magazine. In the story, a modern girl is magically transported to another universe and back in time to the Middle Ages of Kurtz' books. She has to find her way back as well as discover her own magical powers. This picture shows her awakening and realizing that she is far, far from home and stuck a thousand years in the past, at which point she becomes hysterical. The man trying to restrain her is the Deryni Healer, Rhys Thuryn, whom she becomes attracted to despite the fact that he is a happily married man. This is the first installment of two or three, so the story is only partially told. Drawing is ink on Bristol board, 8" x 10".
