Small World ~ Raykin

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Anna Thomas

Something I've been meaning to do for a while is a series of the four kingdoms of Tsyllaes (continent my story Silent Harmony is set on) like I did my year 12 Art prac with the six continents (those are all on DA somewhere). That is, a girl wearing traditional clothes of the kingdom and with wings/hair patterns of a bird from that continent. So, to start with, we have Raykin. Desert kindom with red sand and spinifex, meaning most likely that everyone except the Aussies are going to be somewhat disturbed by the mottled tan-and-red carpet behind her, but screw non-Aussies, that's what it damn well looks like =P Anyway. Raykin is the main kingdom my stories are set in, and her bird is the mythical yrae. I would've done a geya, but not so many people know what they are, so yeah. Plus, yraes are~ real, just everyone in the kingdom thinks they're not. Pose gimped mostly from gettyimages, with incredible help on the lineart from Garney and Xellie, who I'd link but I can't remember the code for that and can't be stuffed looking for it =3 But yes, <3 to them for help with pose. Look how much I've progressed with my spinifex since doing Australia last year! =D

The Riders of the King's Own ~ Part Four

Still in the wilds of Kazin, still three men down, still with an (annoying, some of the bois would say) innovative General at the helm X3 So here, we introduce the remaining pikeman and blade archer, and two more swordies. Because I love swords. Have you noticed that yet? =3 Also? Anyone trying to lay claim to Kurae... you can't. Sallie's already taken him X3 As ever, Nyan rana yn ___, di nyan yn Maralu translates to 'My name is ___, and I'm a rider for the King's Own.' So much easier to say Maralu, innit? I say Own rider. Cos it's English =3

Silent Harmony ~ Rust ~ One

And now~ the story starts =D Introducing Yamin and her twin sister Nimay. They are made of cute <3 (told you there was no more first person X3)

The Riders of the King's Own ~ Part Five

Heading from Silrona back to the warm, sunny lands of home, huzzah! You can al~most see the relief on their faces X3 I still love my archers. Once again, Nyan Rana yn ___, di nyan yn Maralu is Raykinian for 'My name is ___, and I'm a rider for the King's Own.' Also, Kul is General, just cos 'may gets her bit to say here, and Yen is Prince, for Nol. You've met them all now, yay! Aren't they lovely bois? X3

You Won't Be Mine

Introducing Nolryn, crown prince of Raykin. He's a nice boi, he is X3 Title is from the song of the same name by Matchbox 20, which is just so perfect for showing Nol's feelings about having been rejected by Nimay. Every single word of that song fits it, 'cept maybe 'curb'. Raykin doesn't have curbs. But that's beside the point. If you haven't yet figured it out, this story takes place the night following the day Nol got ditched. Poor boi *snugs him*
