And so our story begins…pending once Castlehurst writes it, of course.
This was a quick sketch/painting that I made as concept art for Tamriel Rebuilt and some related mod projects. Though there’s nothing really special about this scene (it’s pretty generic for fantasy wood elves), I used it to exercise my landscape techniques.
This one stretched my abilities. I had an image in my head of a dragonhawk rising out of the fire the like a bunch of orange-tinged smoke, and though it didn’t really turn out like that picture, I think it did…well, alright. Not only is the perspective strange on his beak, but the painting involved a lot of use of contrasts to show shadows and shininess better. If I were to redo him, I think I’d use more gray on his body so his wings and tail pop out more, and there’s a few lines in the inking and silhouette that I’d go over again.
But yes, this is once again Sky Darkener, Keelath’s dragonhawk. Rawr.
When I get better at backgrounds, I’ll probably come back to this one and add something behind them. In the meantime, here is a painting of Keelath and his dragonhawk, Sky Darkener. It’s another hybrid, where the lines are done like I would a comic’s, and then the coloring is put in with a watercolor brush.

The 7th panel of this one is how it all started. Continue reading “The Many Minions of Keelath”
On New Year’s Eve, 2019, at about 2 P.M. Central time, Electricmojo, guild leader of Tight Ship and raid officer of Resurgence, passed away in a car accident. He was the only fatality.
This is my memorial to him, a picture instead of words.
Rest in Peace, Mojo. Until the next adventure.
No, I don’t mean the annihilation of Dora, even though I’m sure some of the other raid members might have been wishing for that after this little incident… Continue reading “Dora’s Annihilation”
