.............Right, YOU come up with a better title. A scene from the fourth book in the series I'm writing. This is Crevan, main character, Black Druid, having been sold into slavery. He was bought by a noblewoman who thought to use him as a man-whore. Here, he's waiting for her to come to her bedchamber. He has a plan. There's a bronze candlestick by the bed--you can't see it--and when she arrives he picks it up, smacks her over the head with it, bloodies his hand getting it out of that manacle, and runs away. On an artist's note, those clothfolds took forever. No reference used, yadayada, I'm pleased. The sketch had actually been sitting around for a couple months before I finally colored it... I sketched it because I was feeling red (don't ask) and the drapery seemed like a good idea before I had to shade it. Colored in teh GIMP, of course.

StH: Part I

Part I of a story I will be uploading in many, many parts. I am going to endeavor to finish it over Christmas break, which begins in one week. I cannot wait. I started this back in September and loved it, then let it stew for a while. I dug it up about a month ago and started working on it again, and I still love it. I'm quite proud of this piece. I hope you enjoy it too. Please note that it takes place looong after the Apocalypse, in which Earth and my own world, Orothu, collided. The main character is not a human, but a Naie'ehl, a race of elves from my planet. She's probably not full Naie'ehl, though, as they had to interbreed with humans and the other various survivors to repopulate what was left of the inhabitable world. (Stairway to Heaven is, of course, a temporary title which is not, I repeat, NOT copyrighted to me. The characters, instances, and content, however, ARE copyrighted to me.)
