Going through a few older drawings for fun. It’s always amusing when you find an older artwork and go “right, I drew that! Well done, past-me!”

Some are really just such fun memories to encounter again~.

58233 words for Days of Baromir. One or three story days left and I'm done with this book. After I finish Days of Baromir I'm going to focus on Streets of Destiny, which is a #kindlevella I've been working on for a few days now, and at four episodes. So then after that's finished I'm going to work on The Life of Baromir and see where that goes, and have to come up with something for that book too as I haven't a clue yet of course, so there's that.

No idea who are the good guys, or why that leopard looks like taxidermy being held up by someone out of shot.

I would say the gorilla is Copyright-Safe-Tarzan's ally and is protecting legally-non-actionable Jane, but it seems rather emasculating for C-S-T, he's all floppy and weak.

Live in BCS #383: "Fruit of the Memory Tree" by J.A. Prentice.

"Above, the branches creaked. I climbed careful, wary they’d snap and come falling upon us. There was a weight to them I had not seen before. Though the fruit blooming between grey leaves were palm-small, they seemed to drag the whole tree earthwards. This close, our laughter died away and we stared up, caught in the shadow of the tree."

"“But I don’t want to go among mad people," Alice remarked.

"Oh, you can’t help that," said the Cat: "we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad."

"How do you know I’m mad?" said Alice.

"You must be," said the Cat, "or you wouldn’t have come here.”
― Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

A colored print of the original Tennile illustrations from 1865 shows Alice in a blue dress and stockings, with her back to the view and her hands clasped behind her, staring up at a large rounded cat on a branch too puny to support its weight and its broad grin as it meets her eyes.

#WritingWonders Day 6 - Does your MC have any nicknames? If so, how did they come by them?

I'm sure Kim has some nicknames, but I never thought to write them. Same with Baromir, he hasn't come up with or been called any nicknames yet, particularly because I don't think about them at all really. I never made any nicknames (I had a nickname in the military though) for my characters despite some traits that could probably earn them one.

Pseudotooth by Verity Holloway - Fantasy that starts out as creeping unease in a modern setting, then shifts into something like a portal fantasy, while twisting those two strands together. It's an unusual story structure, with a well-written protagonist & an ending that caught me off guard in a good way, & if the whole didn't quite match its parts for me, they're fascinating parts. Read if you like interesting experiments with genre.

Her Majesty's Royal Coven by Juno Dawson - Modern fantasy about witches in Hebden Bridge struggling with the aftermath of trauma & some epic government over-reach. I got 30% through thinking this was a light fantasy with characters painted too broadly for my tastes, then the point of the story kicked in & I was absolutely hooked. Read if you like fantasy to tackle big modern issues, or want the novelty of a Yorkshire setting.

Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett - Perfectly timed book club choice for holiday. Pratchett's writing is brilliant, & I always find something new in re-reads. This time, it was realising how unpleasant some of Granny's behaviour toward Magrat is, beautifully written but too far into not nice as a person. Still a great role model in other ways, & brilliantly crafted. Read if you want joy & humour in your life.

The image contains a quote from Humanborn by Joanna Maciejewska.
It reads:
“You didn’t say it’s the cure.”
“Because it’s not. But it works better than anything else I’ve tried, and maybe, just maybe, it can stop the progress.” I didn’t think we really needed the cure. Before it destroyed us in the end, the affliction enhanced us. I wasn’t sure I’d give up my magic and the skills I’d worked hard to learn only to be considered “cured.” As long as I knew the affliction wouldn’t claim me in the end, I was fine with who I was… with what I was.

Lester Del Rey’s 1950 novel When the World Tottered combines ancient mythology with sci-fi (it's definitely sci-fi not fantasy). In the near future a farmer meets a valkyrie and ends up in Asgard. Action-packed and imaginative. Recommended.

#writingWonders 6/6 does your MC have any nicknames? How'd they come by them?

Leda's name is a nickname of sorts. She probably got it from one of her brothers, who didn't want to use her given name, and she kept using it herself.

Icarius's name is already an alias; he chose it himself.

No real nicknames, I'm afraid.

Other than “Em”, Emery doesn’t have any nicknames. However, Iron Wrights are collectively (and derogatorily) called Rusters by the Gold’s, so she’s heard that a few times.

Vince also doesn’t have nicknames. Any nickname would be longer than his one-syllable name. And similarly to Iron’s, Lead Wrights are collectively called Poisoners. Vince hates the term, while others embrace it.

A pink fairy door is nestled at the base of a huge tree in front of my apartment building. To the left is a yellow, diamond-shapes road sign picturing a seated fairy holding a butterfly aloft. The words below it say, “FAIRY XING”. A banner of rainbow flag pennants are strung along the pediment of the door. On the right is a rainbow-patterned You Are Beautiful sign.
Two huge red glittery hearts on sticks are staked to the ground. Between them are strung red heart beads. In front of them are two yard chairs, a teeny re-purposed pizza box table with two teeny glasses sitting atop it. In front of the chairs are two pairs of shoes.

From opening scenes of WATCHMEN, the text reads “Tulsa 1921” over a sepia-tinged recreation of the confusion, horror, and death of the Tulsa Race Massacre.

#TropesAndArchetypes: Aliens

I'm starting with one of the most obvious tropes of all: Aliens. Other intelligent species are at the heart of at least half of all sci-fi and a good bunch of mystery stories. Aliens are fascinating for us because they represent both, a threat and great opportunities. ...

#Introduction time! I go by Zalcoti all over the internet so you may have stumbled upon me before.

As a perpetually curious individual, my interests are pretty wide. It often filters into my artwork. It ranges from video game characters to nature to the sciences to science fiction and #fantasy.

My tools are just as diverse. Alcohol #markers, #ColoredPencils, #acrylic, #watercolor, #Krita, #Blender and #Inkscape are the main staples.

There's also a #SciFi graphic novel in the works.

Someone left a bag of tribute for the faeries! The “Faerie Manager” left Alyssa a thank you note.

Pink paper bag full of unknown treats, set next to the fairy lawn chairs out front of my apartment building. In the background, a pink fairy door is visible.
Fairy loot on chair. The (koff) “fairy manager” hand is visible at left, holding a handmade envelope addressed to Alyssa.
Envelope to Alyssa is placed on the left fairy lawn chair. The lawn chair opposite has a rolled up towel placed on the seat.
Assortment of fairy tribute loot: teeny plastic toys and games.
