Hi folks!

Hahaha sorry I haven't like... updated this journal since last June... mea maxima culpa...

I've been doing my Masters in Museum Studies, the courses are over so all I have left are an essay that's due Thursday (for me) since I'm leaving Friday for a three-week vacation in the States, then the dissertation and a work placement back in the UK

I'll be at ECCC, though only on the Sunday. If you're going to be there, drop me a line, we can meet up!

Otherwise uh... I haven't been doing a lot of art lately, just idle doodles, I'd like to finish something, but no idea when that'll happen, sorry.

SEM out, later days!

Kithri and crew by Teela-B
Kithri and crew

SO UH listen the DnD Elemental Evil thing like… part of it was released as a free add-on like they’ve been doing… and since Kithri is no longer in the group of 12 I just couldn’t work her in… and the add-on add four new races… I’m not made of stone… I’m not made of stone…

Kithri is still like a green knight I mean I haven’t futzed with her costume at all. Though I do draw her in plain clothes a bunch and I imagine those being more naval since her background is a sailor… so like the cream top and navy-colored pants and brass buttons and stuff… but yeah her gear is different…

Oorr the Aarakocra, he’s puffin-based because I love three birds hahahaha also I guess I thought it hilarious that a species based in the air and gliding would look like a puffin a bird that literally cannot glide. You can see my attempt at an albatross but I thought that too absurd looking I KNOW AMAZING. He was a shaman (which I’m reading as Druid) but was kinda… exiled… for reasons… possibly for blasphemy I’m working on some ideas so he’s trying to find one of the thingies that’s in the description so he can be unexiled. Haha I love Oorr. He and Kithri have been hanging out for a few years now. Since Oorr is based off of a puffin and puffins are coastal birds I wanted to incorporate those… and his background is like a shaman (disgraced, probably) I wanted a fancier outfit… stuff with gradients and patterns… something that signified a higher position within the community, basically.

Deep Gnome/Svirfneblin Ivridda Rockhewer. She’s a spy. Sometimes. She also mines. She might be responsible for the birth of Crystalfist I haven’t decided yet. Mostly she just keeps her head low and her eyes on the prize and tries not to draw attention to herself. Ivridda’s a rogue and I wanted a tiny bit of color hence the sash… but I wanted it to be faded… sort of a byproduct of living underground most of the time and it being older I guess… I also wanted her outfit to be like an old miner’s outfit since she was a miner at one point… like by faded I might mean “saturated with mineral dust” or something but like “no longer pristine or as bright as it once was” is what I am trying to get at

Earth Genasi Crystalfist was born when their Deep Gnome parents met with a surge of elemental earth power. They are on the taller side (being more human-sized like other Genasi) but have gnomish features like large eyes and gnome ears. They were abandoned, but found by Ivridda who took them to a monastery maybe and kept tabs on them. Crystalfist is a clan name, but also an accurate description of what their fists look like. They’ve not taken a first name. Crystalfist’s outfit I wanted to be like a decorated stole/vest/whatever the term is… since they’re a monk practicing like the way of the four elements I wanted something like that… I’ve been meaning to expand into that… more intricate clothing designs… they’re the sort of person who never wears shoes because they don’t really need to being like half earth elemental or whatever the genasi are, exactly…

They two of them will eventually leave to go to the surface, probably at Crystalfist’s behest 

Aukun “Twistedlimb” Vaimei-Laga is a Goliath with no clan anymore, but I gave him a clan name anyway deal with it. His nickname was the last nickname he had before leaving his clan. He lost his arm to gangrene after an improperly set break he got while hunting. Goliath have an odd sense of community and “fair play” where everyone has to pull their own weight, even if they are incapable of doing so. Aukun felt as though he had little choice but to leave and see what fate befell him, but Kithri and co wasn’t having any of that. Even if she is less than half his height. His problem is more mental than physical and hey she’s a fucking Halfling there’s still a lot a one-armed Goliath can do that she can’t. It’ll be a fun time all around. Aukun’s outfit I wanted to be simpler and like… open sky/mountainous in a way. When I think mountains I tend to think blue skies haha… I was very keen on blue… and leather, for natural stuff… I tried to add small designs that would be like etching in the metal and leather, mostly triangle-based that could be like mountains but also like a compass…? Since he’s a ranger… I also figured this would be simplified from his previous gear when he was living with his clan, like this was the gear he could get on with one hand and stuff… Also I gave him freckles because the book was going on about how like the Goliath are like stone and blend in with the mountains and like continental crust is granitic and makes mountains so I thought freckles would be a cute callout to that… also makes him look younger which is what I want he’s actually not very old… early 20′s, probably…

I DUNNO rough thoughts but yeah… maybe I’ll write some stuff with them eventually, figure out some backstory stuff…

Gritch and Tonia by Teela-B
Gritch and Tonia

A long overdue gift for burgerthief of his and coggirl‘s characters Gritch and Tonia and I hope they like it…? Haha? Inspired by the fact that the bone minion things creep me the heck out maybe they also creep out Gritch I HOPE SO if not welp it’s not canon like Doll Wife (LISTEN DOLL WIFE IS GREAT AND SHOULD BE CANON WHY IS THAT NOT CANON)

I tried I hope they like orz

Stuff for Guild Wars 2 which I have fallen hard for haha. Mild filter because SERIOUSLY I AM CREEPED OUT BY THE BONE MINION-Y THINGS (I guess they're technically a Flesh Golem and a Bone Fiend WHATEVER CREEPY. MADE OF CREEP).

Have you heard about Cyan's (the makers of Myst and Riven) Kickstarter for their new game Obduction? If not check it out at www.kickstarter.com/projects/c…

We need all the Myst fans we can find :-)
