Character Study: Trials

Apparently Evelos gets his jawline and nose from Tyrdan, not his mom and dad…

Today, in preparation for the next chapter of the Trials comic, I did a little character study for each of its three main characters, and also Tyrdan, who is part of the family but may not feature very much in the comic’s story. This was necessary to help give each character a more characteristic look and feel, with shorthand notes for me so I could draw them more quickly and consistently.

Here they are! With their mouths in the characteristic positions: Keelath is frowning, Tyrdan is smirking, and Mirium’s mouth is open because apparently I draw her talking a lot. Continue reading “Character Study: Trials”

What Darkness Lies, Part Three

It was the gift of the dead, to move while asleep. To do without thinking. To serve without questioning.

“You walk around like a clenched fist rather than an open hand, brother. I think you close yourself off from…what life can still be.”

What Darkness Lies, Part Two (NSFW)

They agreed then they were too different now, too likely to hurt each other, too likely to do something they would both regret. The living and the dead…

Not-Safe-For-Work due to a brief sex scene. This post explores the relationship between Mirium and Keelath a little more in wake of Keelath becoming a death knight.

Author’s Note

I write to you of a difficult matter. Continue reading “What Darkness Lies, Part Two (NSFW)”

Regrowth, Part Two

“It’ll make more sense in time,” soothed Tyrdan. “This year is the beginning of the end of all our troubles.”

The change came on very slowly. His skin and hair faded to silver and gray. His new hunger suddenly sharpened, then diminished as abruptly as it had came on.
