Time This is Time. One of the three swirly people I drew. I admit, the isn't as swirly as the rest of them. Oh yes, Time also doubles as Death. The main quote (song lyric) that inspired me to draw this was from Rush... 'Laughed at by time' and of course, the rest of the line is 'Tricked by circumstances' which was the inspiration for the Trickster. I kinda feel sorry for Trickster. Time only doubles as Death. Trickster is also known as Circumstances (the origional title) as well as Life. That's three roles there. Anyway... I've been listening to Linkin Park a bit. Some of their songs are okay. The quote here (bottom left corner) is from their first song that I liked (As part of a Vash AMV. Who couldn't like it?), called In The End. Originally (right, I'll stop mangling that word now), there was a portal of fire infront of Time, and I got the bright idea to have it be in the swing of a watch. (s'okay... that didn't make sense to me either. I'd have to describe it with maybe a picture and lots of hand movements) While I was playing around with that, I hid the fire layer, and thought, 'Wow, that looks pretty neat on its own!' So I threw in a few more swinging watches and I think it looks pretty cool. :) And in the hourglass, we have a final Rush lyric. Life is a diamond we turn into dust... Extensive use of Painter textures here. The cape, the ground, the pants, the hair, the scythe. The watch I cut out from some magazine. Put a photoshop texture on it, so it looks broken. Re-uploaded. Brightened up the background a bit, took off the text. 'Laughed at by time...' 'Time is a valuable thing/Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings/Watch it count down to the end of the day/The clock ticks life away' 'Life is a diamond we turn into dust.' Pencil in Photoshop

Johrm'ohth Teer CH 3

This is the shortest bit. Now I've got to write up the screenplay I did from Koh Kah'ehv's viewpoint (difficult in a screenplay) and finish writing the section for the second half of the story. Fun!

Tabatha- pt 2

Tabatha, Part 2 - Return. In which the Cats, having discovered paradise, return home to tell their pride, and discover a nasty surprise. Well, that wasn't a complete spoiler. In any case, I might have mentioned somewhere else that I wrote this for my Senior Project. Not only did I write it, but I illustrated it and bound it in a book. Oh! Illustrations! I've got to put those up in my other gallery! Thanks for reminding me.

Starfire War Fragment - VonVon

This is a fragment of the Starfire War that I wrote down so I wouldn't forget about it. This might get put into the story when I get to that part, it'll probably change a bit, and there's a faint chance that it won't make it at all. I wasn't entirely sure who was talking in the beginning, so I just used a pronoun before I decided that it's Shara. VonVon is a nickname for Vonderwyn, the main character of a cautionary/explanatory story. I wasn't sure how to handle the Lanar and Shara roleplaying different people (Brandle and Vonder). If anyone reads this (I'm starting to get a bit worried) let me know how it worked out. Please?

Starfire War Prolog

This is the prolog to the Starfire War. I was going to write some stuff here, but when I did, I decided it was really stupid, so I won't.
