Velocidrome

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Also from the PS2 version of Monster Hunter,I know, this guy looks almost identical to the Velociprey he sits next to in my gallery. But, this guy is called a Velocidrome, and he's actually the alpha leader of the velociprey pack. You can tell him apart by his bigger orange crest, as well as his orange claws which are incredibly valuable in crafting the "Serpentblade" line of swords (which I happen to use :) ). Anyway, as a general rule in the game, the "dromes" are the leaders of the "prey" packs. Hence, veloci-prey and veloci-drome. It's the same for many other types of creatures in the game, therefore when I draw them from now on, the "prey" and "drome" will be in the same picture, as they are usually very similar. Anyway, velocidromes are much more difficult to kill, as they have (easily) more than quadruple the health of an average velociprey. Their attacks are the same as their lesser "prey" brothers, however the dromes are much more likely to hit you with a leaping tackle. They have spot-on accuracy. For a beginner hunter, these velocidromes are living terror. However, as you progress in the game and become more experienced, taking on 3 or even 4 at one time is no big deal. And, with this guy done, it's finally time to draw the dragons! YESSS!Total time to complete this picture - 40 minutes. I know this because I listened to Nico Nico Douga 4 times :) Great song, 10 minutes long!

'Conquest' Synopsis

I felt like posting something different. This is what would appear on the back cover of the book I wrote like five years ago. Tell me what you think! Would you read the book? Comments and criticism greatly appreciated, as always. It was the first full manuscript I ever wrote, but it was nothing more than an experiment. My current writing is much more serious than this ever was. :)

Running Red: Epilogue

The epilogue of Running Red! Hopefully this clears some things up about the story if you haven't figured them out! And thanks for reading, by the way!

Running Red Rewrite p2

Part 2 Synopsis: A unique detective is asked to look into the case regarding the unexplained murders, and everyone is left wondering exactly what kind of investigator they actually got....C&C greatly appreciated!

Running Red Rewrite p5 and Epilogue

Part 5 Synopsis: All the truths are finally revealed. Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.

Concealed: Chapter 1

The first chapter of Concealed, my let's-have-fun manuscript. As I said in the Summary, this is not meant to be deep, complex, etc. Yes, she does have personal problems. Yes, they declare war on the enemy/have a longstanding hatred for no apparent reason.  Yes, she does like him. I wasn't trying to be too sneaky with anything here.If this were a serious novel, I would have patched up those problems.

Concealed: Chapter 2

As I said in the last chapter, there is no particular reasons these guys don't like each other, etc. I wasn't practicing weaving a story - I was practicing the actual writing (which I've improved on since this was written 3 years ago).Thanks for reading!
