Double Chibi Demon Puppies

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

These two chibi portraits were completely unrelated requests, but I couldn’t resist putting them together.

The first is for Anna! This is her character Líadan, playing fetch with her divinely bonded Shetland sheepdog cerberus puppy:

That bone must have belonged to a chibi giant.

And the second is for Lisa! This is her spiky demon guy and his magic wolf friend (along with an example of the local forest wildlife):

Super Saiyan Pangolin = best character description I've ever received.

They were both a ton of fun to draw. ♥

Combat-Ready Cole

For Saint Cy! Here’s Cole the fighter, ready for some fightin’:

Who wants some?

This is one of the prizes for Cy’s epic fiction entry in the most recent fan work contest. If you haven’t seen it, check out Bob and Phidega’s excellent adventure in The Castle of Terror!

Severian and Tareth

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

A prize sketch for Thought-Ripples! She requested Severian and Tareth, from the Runewriters comic:

It's pretty hard to turn pages with tentacles.

Don’t let the tail and tentacles fool you — Severian is a sweet guy. :D 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!
