Lorric and Talvi being cute. Needed something de-stressing, and for once it wasn’t snarly, toothy monsters!
Talvi turned out a bit smaller than she actually is, and Lorric a bit less disgruntled looking than usual. Oh well!

Oops I’ve been slacking on my daily sketches…here’s one of the dragon I’ve been noodling on lately. LIZARD LEGS, HOW DO THEY WORK??
Expect potential studies of lizard anatomy as I try to figure them out so I can make better use of them as inspiration!

I don’t often do fanart, but when I do…it’s usually Warcraft related. Doodled a couple of sleepy droods because I didn’t know what else to draw and was getting real tired of sitting in raid queues.

Trying to nail down a palette that evokes dawn. Going for a sort of dusky, pre-dawn look for the dorsal side and a dawning sunrise for ventral.
I’ve still yet to figure out what her ultimate role is, but every time I think about it she becomes more important, especially regarding her connection to Lorric.

A karangha, an enigmatic “species” that some believe to be amalgams of the mortal and divine souls lost during Talgarra’s cataclysm. Though physically there is little difference among them, no two share the same eye colour.
I swear I’ll start finishing things eventually…

Lorric! I liked his face enough here to count this as my sketch of the day. Not sure what’s actually going on though, maybe some oozing shadows are swarming his hands, or he’s holding some dying flames of Tah, or something. Guess I’ll figure it out when/if I ever finish it…

Great stories […] make you want to tell your own stories that reach out and grab someone like the story you just experienced did to you. Or better yet, they make you want to tell your own stories even better. In that post-story moment you know for a fact you have a story in you somewhere that will make someone feel like you’re feeling, make them feel even more powerful than you feel. We’re all storytellers, after a fashion, even if the stories take their sweet time leaving our heads. Eventually we find the story that sends us careening past uncertainty and fear to tell our own, whatever form they may take.

That’s what this collection does for me. Reading Kameron Hurley’s writing makes me want to take on the world. Her words are like a direct challenge to write and write viciously and without apology: write hard things, write beautiful things, write things that make people happy or sad or that make them belly laugh. Write, even when you’re afraid of failure. Write especially when you’re afraid of failure.

Write.

Oops more sketching…this is Hans, first mate aboard the whaling vessel Unbound. He’s half sylph!
Lucky for him, his mother shirked the conventional sylphaen custom of murdering half-bred bastard children, but in the end she still ended up pawning him off to some sea captain as a cabin boy. CAN’T WIN EM ALL

Hastily cleaned sketches of the ill-tempered entity that harasses Lorric in the spirit world. Draconic is its preferred visible shape, but I’m still iterating on design!
