scanned photo of sketch on medium weight drawing paper, photoshoped from scratch, 5 months in total to complete/1-2 hours a day at a time (busy with school)Cheriarchi knight, a water faerie and completely my own made up "faeryë type", if anyone has any suggestions on how I can find proper reference photos of underwater shots, I'd be very grateful, the ones I find have things in them screwing up the background.These water faeries in my story concept I'm working on are described as vicious creatures that have to constantly stay in motion, like a shark, they are drawn to blood miles off and attack ships always in the same area, the Azuli Ocean is riddled with monsters of the deep, carcasses of ships and skeletons of unfortunate sailors from every century since the land dwelllers sought to traverse the wild, untamable waves, are scattered all over the cliffs of the Krailamarka. The ribbons attached to the faerie's body are her fins, (inspiration-angel fish/beta/tigerfish) and her ears are slits hidden underneath that mass of fine tentacle-like hair and just below the lowest spine in her head fin.

The Offering

A young girl who can see and hear the dead, grew up believing the next day could be her last after witnessing her father murder her mother at the age of two. Cate is shy, and quiet, and for the longest time she hated being in a crowded room. Her ability to see the dead  may have driven her into madness, yet Kaisre changed all of that. In a dire situation that could have only happened in legend, the two meet and could not be separated no matter what. A deeper look into the secrets of Alla, and a continuation of the conflicts after the 50 years war in the Dream Realm of Faerye had ended 20 years prior to the Offering's beginning. This story is of passion so fierce that nothing outside can destroy it and a family bond that gets twisted and ruined simply because of pride and prejudice against an entire race of misfit people.

Lord Armonde of the elementals

Elementals and demons, the spirits of Allã, have had to live through the torture of black magic by the hand of the necromancer. Now that the Necromancer is brought down, they are without order. Yet the elves had won the war against the humans to reclaim the Empire. Empress Naomi overlooks the reconstruction of her late father's realm. She and the great Azalie, a warrior now revealed to the world as a demi-goddess of the Icalaendie, formed a treaty, for the elementals and demons to live at peace with the other free peoples of the Island Kingdoms. Lord Armonde is one of few spirits who agreed to honour the treaty. This side story explains some of the background concerning the Order of the Knights of Nimhrais. 

Wild Child, Play Chapter 1

The world is a vast forgotten place, full of horrors beyond imagination and conjured by nightmares, that belong to me.I am a wild child, one whom no man, nor any manner of creature can tame.I live to be who I am for the time being, and then I am someone else entirely. An exploration of a world beyond the borders of fiction. I wanted to create a story around a being of divine right that was expelled from the heavens to live among mortals, to grow and mature and develop as all children do, but by existing on the perimeter of society, Azalie, this wild child, has everywhere and anywhere in Allä to run, play and be free.
