Shinies Cover

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Cover art for a comica I'm going to start working on any day now, Shinies. The girl on the right, Sehnlaq, is a Kazinian treasure hunter and part time bounty hunter, who only resorts to pickpocketing and robbery when nothing else is working at the time. In this story--The Treasure of Tisadez--she wants to go after the big~ fish, so to speak, which is strangely enough on the island of Tisadez. The guy on the left, Aj, is a Tsaythi sailor who Sehnlaq has managed to blackmail into sailing her there, cos he killed someone, so yeah. I figured I should do something in coloured pencil, just because I haven't in so long (as in, a year and a half or so *gasp!*) and because I recently bought myself replacement Derwents for the 18 of my set that were under 10cm (4-ish inches) long. I had four that were, I kid you not, 3cm long (inch and a half or so), which is so not fun. So yeah, shiny new pencils~ and I really love how this one came out on paper. Scanner naturally killed it, particularly Aj's skin. He looks all grainy, poor boi. Imagine that he doesn't look grainy >>;

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*
