Arting, Writing, Nerding

Oldish 2008 sketch of a young Lorric (formerly Soren) up top that I found going through some school sketchbooks. Figured I’d take another stab at drawing him as he looked prior to becoming a wight, so the bottom scan is my sketch of the day! 

Real attempt at a sketch, though I got about halfway through before I realized I didn’t actually…plan the light source. Oops. 
Also, iridescence is a bitch.

Really quick sketches of some generic therezinosaurs before I run out the door. Been looking for a while for some grounded skeletal/anatomical reference for my dino-bird people, and I realized therezinosaurs fit the bill! Which is great because they are awesome, bizarre dinos.

Previewed my shaman with the updated models - he’s ADORABLE LOOKIT THAT COW NOSE. Blizzard is trying to win me back with the expansion… new models, molten corgis, pet toucans…

This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals—sounds that say listen to this, it is important.

Omg France why are your little country towns so cute.
Lozère is one of the places I’m considering this werewolf story of mine to take place in, primarily because it’s where the beast of Gévaudan reportedly was active but also because it seems to be in the middle of nowhere with communes that look a bit run-down? I dunno. The olden feel coupled with the landscapes there fit the images in my head pretty well. 
We’ll see!
