Thyme is for Courage, Juniper is for Protection, Poppies are for Remembrance.  marker drawing, photoshop color.
Aaa sorry for the lull!  I returned from Japan and have since been working on MANY THINGS SIMULTANEOUSLY.  This is going to be a page in CUTTINGS!  You might remember one of the drawings from earlier.

Walking Gods cast (or at least some of ‘em).  photoshop.
Whoops, this slowly appeared over the course of the past week.  A lot of these guys I haven’t drawn in literally years.  For those curious, Noalle is a sibyl and Kaia’s friend.  Haldae is a scary dragon.  Círran is a flower farmer.  Oria is the god of the harvest. (more information about this story here)
If the CUTTINGS kickstarter hits its next goal (adding SIXTEEN pages of content), there’s a really good chance this’ll be included in the book!  It only has 8 days to go, aaa!  Thank you so much again to everyone who’s supported the project!!

Eight of Swords.  photoshop.
Whoops another tarot card appeared.  North was rough to associate with a card, he was very nearly the two of cups exclusively on the merit that he looks like the red winged lion from the Rider-Waite deck.
Instead he gets to be represented by a hooded falcon in the middle of a caldera.

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?

"I’m pretty fair at carving.  Y’know, decorative stuff.  Handles, door frames, charms, toys."

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.

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.

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.

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!

monster romance vs anime boy venn diagram.  photoshop, childhood obsession.
I was thinking about that thing I said yesterday, about how I only like drawing two types of dudes: lovesick beastmen and white-haired anime bois with Problems.  And, oh wait false alarm, it looks like I’m only into lovesick beastmen.  why am i admitting this to the internet.
Since I’m certain people will be asking for the names of these dudes, I’ll give a rundown from left to right in the three rows:
Kenner the beastman, who still likes his exNicholas the android with a codfish face, who actually is not quite so lovesick as just has a wife and daughter who he loves more than anythingGrey the clone of a dead god, who needs to figure himself outDhio the prehistoric dog-turned-god, who has a huge crush on his coworkerPythias the dragon, who has less problems now that he is marriedSidere the god of lust, who needs to check himself before he wrecks himselfDeath the psychopomp, who needs to get out moreNorth the garuda, who is in love with his best friend’s wifeRaitaro the dragon, who has low self-esteem
Some day I will do one million comics about everyone.

Naptime for Beasts (North, Kaia, and Dhio).  pencil sketch, touched up and colored in photoshop.
Whelp, looks like I’m still doodling these guys everywhere.  Guess this makes three in the series now?  I promise I’ve actually redesigned some other old pantheon gods, I’m just really partial to these fellas.
Things might get a little slow during December.  There’s some pretty crazy stuff coming up for me.

Kaia and her best bro.  Pencil sketch, colored in Photoshop.
Yup, Kaia’s two best pals are beast-men.  Maybe it’s that I’m amused by the idea of two huge monsters being dominated by a teeny girl?  Who knows.
North (you might recognize him) isn’t a god like Kaia and Dhio— although his species is technically a kind of dragon, which puts him genetically into this long-lived shape-shifting demi-god-ish category.  He is supposed to have these vestigial dinosaur fingers on his wings to echo his beast-man design, but I forgot them in the sketch— just, uh, pretend they’re tucked in or something.
