The Lady Death

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Rhiannon Taylor

Another one of my new style. This took forever, no exageration. I started the first day of summer school, (I messed up freshman year) I finished near six weeks later. And this is the last timeĀ for a very long while that I'll draw celtic knotwork. My wrist screamed for days in agony, such small detail... Anyway, enough complaint. This took at least fifteen--twenty-five hours for completion. There were a few mistakes I fixed in photoshop. I don't pretend to have perfect inking skills. The contrast of the black and white is a little high in this one. And the original is spans about 13X8.5 inches. It's...large, and very hard to scan. Erm, background. She's an apprentice to the angel of death. The lamp allows her to lead the dead onward to whatever lies beyond death. That's death lurking behind her. Enjoy. Completed August 2008. Submitted November 2008. Uncountable hours, truly.

Prologue: Armageddon Prophecies

This is the prologue to all three Armageddon Prophecies stories. It tells of the mythology of the world and of the God Wars, which took place after the creation of all Peoples and nearly destroyed all that was. The rest of the Prophecies will be up as soon as I finish scrapping the old version and going through serious rewriting. The mythology is currently the only part I felt good enough about to write. Also, the writing is a little difficult to follow; it works much better if you read it aloud. Critics welcome.

Faerie Rose

*Poem* The rather sad tale of a man who fell in love with a female fae for one night, only to awaken to her vanished from his side. Could be sung as a song, for that is how it originally was written. I wrote this very late one night scribbled on the back of an article about human psychology from adolescence. Strange when inspiration strikes and even stranger is the result. Critique if you so wish.
