The Dragon and The Onion Girl: Chapter 2

Chapter 2

Last time, Sprite the seven year old apprentice and pupil of the Knights Vigilant rescued the blacksmiths daughter Lorain for a pack of wolves and have now become friends.

To the great discomfort of poor Sprites nose, life started to change since the day he faced the wolves. For one, Sprite’s daily routine, before, had originally consisted of, wake up, do chores, work at the forge till noon, then head back home for schooling, and of course swordsmanship training with his teacher Greta. In case you don’t remember, Greta is the knight who raised young Sprite. And now, ever since he saved the onion girl, she would be waiting for him at his front gate whenever he came out to head to the forge.
What’s worse is she would walk beside him and Sprite would walk extra fast in order to make it harder for her smell to cling to him. It took him almost an hour every morning just to wash out the onion smell from his cloths. Continue reading “The Dragon and The Onion Girl: Chapter 2”

The Dragon and The Onion Girl: Chapter 1

Chapter 1

This story begins just like any good fairytale.  It begins A Long Time ago, in a faraway kingdom, in a land much like our own. Also like any good story, this one has a hero. In particular, a boy going by the name of Sprite. Only, he isn’t quite a hero yet, and he will have to do quite a bit of growing up before he can properly earn that title. Continue reading “The Dragon and The Onion Girl: Chapter 1”

Candy

Just finished an outline for Candy the antagonist in my book Gabriel and the Black Candy Circus. Next I have to color it.

Now that I have some color I need to add some dramatic lighting, simulate texture, and add a background. I think I’ll have her standing on stage in front of her crowed. Spot light shining down on her dark figure.

All done

CandyCandy, youngest family member of the single most powerful coven of witches ever, The Black Circle. What makes them so powerful you ask. They are the keepers of Lucifer’s Grimoire also known as The Black Book. The book was a gift from Heavens first fallen, the devil himself.

As for Candy, though she was indeed the youngest, she was in no way the least of her family. In fact she was a prodigy, having mastered every spell and incantation years ahead of her time. As it so happens, on her sixteenth birthday, having been so accomplished, she presented herself to the head of the family, Mistress Glenumbra, and asked to have her name added to the contract located in the back of The Black Book. However, Candy was too young. You see contained within this book was not only every spell, hex and incantation ever used by the witches, the book is quite literally the source of power for those very spells. Should the book be destroyed, Magic would end and the witches would be powerless, not to mention mortal once again.

As it is no secret that those of the witch kind are immortal, it is however not commonly known that it is again this black book to which they owe their longevity.

When Lucifer first entrusted his book to the witches he also offered them a pact represented by a blood contract located on the last pages of the book. Those who inscribe their names no longer feel the pull of time on their flesh. However, this gift comes with a major drawback. Sure, those who subscribe no longer age, however they no longer grow as a person either. Be it, emotional,  physical, spiritual and every other aspect of their being. From the moment the deal is struck who they are remains constant, forever.

As such, it is no surprise that Mistress Glenumbra denied Ms. Candy’s request. Though Candy was indeed talented, she was also a vain self-centered sixteen year old and so she would remain for all eternity had Glenumbra accepted. Needless to say, though the circle could be tolerant of Candy’s young disposition and personality, they were not however, prepared to put up with it forever. Thus Candy was denied.

As could be expected the young witch did not take the refusal kindly. In fact she was so absorbed in her own disappointment that she went and did something no one expected. Candy went behind her family’s back, stole the Black Book, and signed the blood packed.

It did not take long for her treachery to come to light. Fearing the wrath of Glenubra, Candy with the help of her brother fled with the Book.

Escape however did not come easy, for the might of her family was against her. Cornered, but not out of options, Candy wove an ancient spell contained within the Dark Books  pages. A great incantation that had only been wrought once before. She created another world, one separate from our own and bound to her will.

Retreating within this world with none but her brother for company, Candy escaped the wrath of her family, and they dared not pursue her within this new world.

She did not stay within this world for long however. Neither did she flee. Far from it. All to quickly her thirst for attention and the spot light, which would now ever be apart of her, drover her to what she did next. She created The Circus, within which contained her world and within which she was lord and Mistress. Since that day, people from all over came to witness the wonders of her circus and the glory of its mysteries. The young enchantress had found her spotlight and this time, no one could deny her, for she was now founder, and ringleader of the Black Candy Circus.

I have managed to collect most of the subject matter I need and even finished some demo sketches. I’ve decided to change my strategy a bit, as I am creating my own references with Photoshop using my collected photos. I am making good progress so far but they still need work.

Ok so just starting on this ten piece project for school. I plan to go mixed medium: Color Pencil and Watercolor but with digital enhancements. The Subject matter is going to be scenes from one of my book series. Today I will be collecting reference material and start some composite sketches for the final works.

 

Lilly the She-Wolf

she wolfJust did for the heck of it. feel free to comment and let me know what you think. I tried out a new style of line. Also I’ve been messing around with her anatomy and I think i did make her breasts to far apart. I’ll get it right next time. as for the chest I’m having a bit of difficulty getting the curves right without the abbs. still a little rusty with human anatomy, but I’m getting better. Hope you like her

Child of the Forest

Child wolf finThis is actually my first attempt a speed still life. Sadly this can no longer be considered a ‘speed’ drawing, as I have since improved upon it. Also, I realize the wolf isn’t real however I did draw the background from scratch while looking at a reference photo. It was allot of fun and i think it turned out quite nicely ^^

The story behind this character is that he is the son of Donza, Chief of the Ora, a tribe of warriors who have mastered the art of manipulating there (Internal energy/soul) and harness it as a weapon. Using the power within them they can perform impossible feats like flight or even shape-shifting.
Child, is the traditional name awarded to children of the Ora until they come of age and prove themselves worthy of a new name. Our hero’s story begins when he and other members of his tribe, including his father Donza, are attacked while providing safe passage for the king and his body guards. There attackers posses startling strength and through ambush managed to overpower the youth, leaving him mortally wounded.
On the precipice of defeat and seeing the fall of there son, chief Donza and his wife retreat and take cover, in order to perhaps rescue there fallen son. However his wounds prove to grievous, and whats worse they are still surrounded by there attackers. In a desperate act to preserve the life of there son Donza, with the assistance of his wife, manage to transfer Child’s soul into the body of there pet hound. The transference is only just completed they are finally discovered and killed. However since the transfer process left our hero nothing more than a comatose dog lying at his former body’s feet, Child was completely overlooked by his attackers. Thus child was the only survivor.
It has now been six years of watching over the remaining members of his tribe, as well as training and recuperating from the disadvantages of his new condition. The death of his parents still haunt him and the time has finally come, as he sets out for revenge.
