Character Q&A: Kaia, Dhio, North

A little while ago I mentioned wanting to fill out a character meme that was going around and my pal Chelsea was a dear and gave me a few prompts.  Here’s some questions answered by those guys I won’t stop drawing.

• What are your strengths?

Ha ha yeesh okay fine!  Here’s the full version of that cropped picture from yesterday.
Thanks guys, for enabling my shamefully self-indulgent drawings.

sometimes I draw really self-indulgent art of my characters and then turn into a flustered baby and don’t post it, the end.

Worldbuilding (3/3): North

Part 1 | Part 2

This is it!  I’ve been so pleasantly surprised with the response to these fellas. They’re extremely dear to me and I’d love more than anything to drop everything and run off to write a series of comics or prose novels about them, ha ha.  But that sort of thing isn’t possible at this time.

Anyway, thank you guys for hanging out and letting me talk at you.

It’s time to talk at length about this guy!!  Apologies in advance, I’m about to talk about dragon cultures for maybe longer than is strictly necessary.

Worldbuilding (1/3): Kaia

There has been a lot of interest in those pantheon guys recently!  I’m in the middle of several other projects and it’s not likely this story’s going to find itself made into a proper book any time soon, but I wrote out a few general introductions to these characters.

Part 2 | Part 3

This story’s been following me around in one form or another since I was about 15, and while it’s extremely close and dear to me, I’m pretty certain that it also retains its heart of a kid’s childish fantasy of flawed gods and celestial war.  Is that positive or negative?  Don’t answer that question.

Here’s our protagonist:

Beast’s Heart.  Loose continuation of part 1, part 2.
Why does the beast have to turn into a man at the end of the story.  Why can’t the beast remain a beast.

North, Kaia, Dhio.  photoshop.
I drew this over the weekend as an experiment to see how quickly I could draw and ink something digitally.  The pencils and inks for this were done in maybe 2 hours, which is amazingly fast for me since I tend to agonize over stuff!
Some UNNAMED PALS have been buggin’ me to draw Dhio not being decapitated or mutilated or in otherwise unhappy situations.  The colors and texture were partially based off The Unicorn in Captivity, which my buddy Chelsea and I saw this past week.

Forged Iron.  For the Arcana show at Telegraph Art Gallery.
I’m going to have a piece in Telegraph’s next art show!  The Arcana show is all interpretations of major arcana tarot cards, and like a nerd I jumped for the Strength card and filled it with all of my favorite kinds of imagery.  And also Dhio and Kaia.
Arcana will be running from October 4th-30th at Telegraph in Charlottesville, VA!  You’ll be able to buy an 18x24” screened print of this at the show/Telegraph site/NYCC!  I’ll also have a few prints at next year’s conventions!  More about the show opening here.

anime crossings.  photoshop.

I saw some other people drawin’ their characters as Animal Crossing animals and thought it was a fun idea!  Walter and North both get to be “Smug”-type, because that’s the closest equivalent to “anxious,” ha ha.

And the girl took the long, sharp hairpin that the man had given herAnd she cut the great black dog’s throat, from sternum to jawAnd at the first prick of the hairpin, the dog went stiff and silentAnd fell, still as deathAnd from the hole in the dog’s throat emerged the manHis hair and skin and eyes still as black as the dog’sAnd his throat cut as the dog’s wasFrom sternum to jaw

And the girl took the long, sharp hairpin that the man had given her
And she cut the great black dog’s throat, from sternum to jaw
And at the first prick of the hairpin, the dog went stiff and silent
And fell, still as death
And from the hole in the dog’s throat emerged the man
His hair and skin and eyes still as black as the dog’s
And his throat cut as the dog’s was
From sternum to jaw

north, dhio, kaia.  photoshop.
The young god, the old god, and the mortal monster man who the two gods liked enough to make immortal so they could be together forever.  Ha ha ha, so many people have asked me lately when I’m gonna do a comic about these guys.  The answer is: ????? the future ?????  I’m really thankful they resonate with people, though!
Hey so I’m going to be out of the country from the 12th to the 24th of April, so this blog is going to be fairly quiet until then.  Ananth will continue updating over at Johnny Wander in my absence and I’ll hopefully be able to update dumb photos over at my twitter whenever there’s free wifi access.  Take care, guys!
