These Dream Wings

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

This is based on a dream I had the other night. The winged people are all caterers, kind of enslaved by a company and unable to show their wings and escape. Someone gave them phials of this clear fluid, and they were able to escape from the company and they alighted upon this weird tower thing, some on one level, some on the one above, before flying off. This was done in watercolour paints and watercolour pencils on an F6 sketchbook: I put a base of watercolour paints down, did a lot of the painting with them. Then I used the pencils to shade certain things and did the wings entirely with them. It also looks a bit odd around the middle because I'd had to scan it in two parts and I think I scanned slightly lop-sidedly... Took something between 10-11 hours altogether. And the two signature (well, one and a half) is because my handwritten one got cut off, so I put the second on with PSP when I put the scan together.

The Meeting

This started out as a random idea that slowly developed into something more. It seems that Dew and Rever's relationship works a little better once taken from high fantasy and transplanted into a modern setting.

Caria's Painting

I actually wrote this as an 'example roleplay' piece for a supernatural-themed board. As I wrote, it turned into this short story (and as it happens, I was also accepted). Modern vampires are a perennial favourite of mine.
