Feelings on Faces (King's and Mine)

Feelings on Faces (King's and Mine)

Throughout my journeys with commissioning character portraits, a failure of mine has been put out into the open: my failure to really ‘see’ some of my characters faces (the Humanoid ones especially). This is a weakness of my visualization and my mind’s eye. I know it and accept it, but it’s also relatively well hidden. This weakness is hidden well because the original main characters don’t have ‘normal’ faces. Cyclone’s head is a skull that is underneath a striking helmet....

Of Fractured Edges Afterword (+ Recording!)

Of Fractured Edges Afterword (+ Recording!)

The last of the first four afterwords/forewords—the one for Of Fractured Edges. This...this one might be the most intense of them, emotionally. Longest as well for sure. Most spoilerific too, so beware.

King Fla'neiel's Journey

King Fla'neiel's Journey

I made another little movie on How to Stop Wildfire. This time, it has music custom made and inspired by the book! It was made by Josh B. It is a wonderful track. The theme of the video is King Fla'neiel's journey. Nothing too spoiler-y, just a good beginning overview. It was a bit hard to make, but I did it. Learned a lot of new techniques. Did some crappy drawings just for it. Enjoy!

This is a 'character interview' for one of the main characters, King Fla'neiel, of How to Stop Wildfire. Fla'neiel: 'Hello' is fine. I do not speak Tyra Tarkush. Really? I thought Tyra Tarkush was the other official language of the Empire, along with what we are speaking now. Of course it is. Flana believed that Tyra Tarkush should not be spoken. It is a holy language, and we will sully it by speaking it without true intention. Do you believe...

Cartoon Propaganda Posters

Cartoon Propaganda Posters

I've been practicing my computer-art skills. I decided to make cartoon propaganda posters of the main four. Cyclone, King, Spellbinder, and Farrco. They all are kind of terrible in their own way, but I think it is important to try new things and learn new skills. Cyclone looks like a cartoon character version of himself. I think he would be proud.. King looks dorky, but he is sparking up so whatever. Drew him with the bracelet! Woo hoo! Spellbinder, is...
