Crochet Dien

Crochet Dien

I have gotten into crochet recently, making little creatures and characters. With this power, I have made DIEN! I chose Dien since she’s a Dracite and there are lots of different dragon patterns out there. Dien was based on this dragon pattern but I partially did my own thing due to error and just needing a different look. Thus Dien in crochet form was formed! Pretty pleased with how she turned out. I’m planning on doing Chatzu’kuan as my next...

Tales of the Trinity and the One Volume 1, aka Book 11 RELEASED!

Tales of the Trinity and the One Volume 1, aka Book 11 RELEASED!

Finally, the next entry in the series is released! Book 11 is under the banner of ‘Tales of the Trinity and the One’, Volume 1 of it, but is still a sequel to Amethyst Shards. It’s under a different banner because these next volumes are more collections of various short stories that are somewhat connected rather than being a coherent, epic narrative. It’s also much shorter than the other books, but longer than The Lost. Patreon supporters can download Volume...

Dien Character Development Spotlight

So I’m just going to keep carrying on and doing what feels right. That’s all I can really do...

January 2024 in Art (also The Lost Rough Map)

In January, I made a bunch of assets for my new solar system maps, also for my The Lost map (which I have just finished today as of this posting). I also drew two other pieces of my world, only one of which I am posting today (as the other is a spoiler for a future work): Shafien Architecture Concept

December + November 2023 in Art

December + November 2023 in Art

I didn't make a November 2023 in Art post, even though I did do art in that month, as I neglected to take the pictures of my art. As such, I am posting November and December 2023's art all together! I didn't include everything I drew, only the stuff I want to share/is worth sharing.
