Awkward

a web comic depicting a World of Warcraft raid reacting to an inappropriate remark from Dorasmus the undead mage
Also known as: Dora being Dora.

There wasn’t really a good way to reword this one so as to be appropriate. Part of the humor of Dorasmus’ lines was the alliteration, and monkeys “fudging” a football just didn’t have the same effect. Yes, he really said that. Continue reading “Awkward”

The Shaping of Seryth, Chapters 20 through to Intermission

Chapter 20: Though he knew his old companions had dispersed from Val'sharah, he did not know where to. Still disguised, Seryth returned to Westfall to see if he could pick up on any rumors. He didn't feel entirely ready to face them, but he didn't know what else to do.

He passed a mass grave near Moonbrook. His knees buckled as he passed it, and he came back to stare. It seemed the farmers had discovered where he had dumped the bodies of the disobedient and the failed experiments. A shrine and obvious signs of consecration did little to make him feel better.


While he was staring at it, a pair of paladins, obviously of Fordrellon’s order, though Fordrellon wasn’t with them, came by to pay their respects. One saluted him, but they both left him alone, perhaps assuming he was mourning the people killed in silence. And he was, in a way.

Child of Light

digital art portrait of Mirum, blood elf paladin, holding Aubraan, her infant son, upfront of a light-filled window

Here is Mirium and her infant son, Aubraan. This image was inspired by my writing a scene in which Aubraan was nomming on Mirium’s pauldron. Someone said I should draw it, so I did!

Getting the color balance on this one correct made me want to pull out my hair. The background started out as blue, then green, and now purple. I also had to over-saturate the characters’ skin tones so they would pop out properly among the rest of the busy picture.

This is one of the first pictures I attempted adding sun glow and reverse shadows to, too. If you see purple shadows on an object instead of a darker shadow of its normal color, that’s the reverse shadow effect.

If the future, I should probably remind myself to smooth out the shading.

Art-Making Streams!

I have finally figured out how to use OBS Studio! Prepare to see more art streams making their way to the Locals and YouTube FoxFireFiction communities in the near future!

For now, have a partial stream of the clean-up phase of the Mirium Sketch (better title to be determined). Fuller-length streams I plan to include on Locals in the future, for the price of $2 a month. You will also get access to an exclusive fans-and-devs community besides just supporting me to continue more work like this. I hope to see you there!

Cog Railroad on Top of Pikes Peak

photo of the cog railroad at the top of Pikes Peak, Colorado, USA

This was one of the first images I had taken using a new cell phone. The image comes from the top of Pikes Peak in Colorado. The railroad here is a cog railway: the little teeth running down the center line are able to catch and hold the train to help gain traction going up steep slopes as well as keep it from running backwards down the mountain when the train stops. Some cog railways are no more than two feet wide to get through narrow mountain passes; this one is more like four.

If you’re interested in buying a print of this, you can get one through DeviantArt for around 20-60$ (depending on size).
