A prize sketch for Thought-Ripples! She requested Severian and Tareth, from the Runewriters comic:
Don’t let the tail and tentacles fool you — Severian is a sweet guy. He’s just having some… issues… with shape-changing magic.
As a fun bit of trivia: The Runewriters author (Shazzbaa) is indirectly responsible for True Magic’s continuing existence. Back when I was struggling with the story in the old version of TM, I stumbled across one of her posts recommending the book with the most profoundly useful writing advice I’ve ever seen. It gave me enough insight to reboot the comic into its current (better) form instead of giving up on it.
Thank you, Shazzbaa!
