Hey, long time no see! I've been busy working on Fathoms and running around in panicked circles as Christmas bore down on me. But I'm better now.

New character, no name yet;

In other news, Painter's Digital Watercolour tool is neat, and I will be using it more.

Trying to work out the overall look of the Moonface tribe.

Ink warm-ups/sketchdump/worldbuilding

Pretty disparate post today - sketches and ink-practise and a bit of Fathom-worldbuilding (because worldbuilding is the most fun you can have with your pants on, honestly).

Costume-ideas (i.e: visual identity) for the Whalerider-people. The one on the far left is Khazri, the one next to him is a tentative design for a standard soldier's uniform; the next is a random woman's outfit, and the one on the far right is probably a cloth-merchant. As a nomadic people, the Whaleriders tend towards becoming itinerant traders.

They also make a big deal out of concealing their faces (both genders); they think of faces as an important expression of identity - the shape of their soul, if you will - and it is therefore considered intensely private.


A variation on the theme of my most recent digital painting; this one focused more on feelings of protectiveness.

Gesture-practise! (Photo-referenced)

Ink warm-ups, take 2.

More ink-warmups. They're a good habit, since they keep me drawing almost every day (and to be honest, the days when I'm not working on Fathoms, I'm drawing other things).

... Perhaps I ought to clean some of these up and colour them. For practise, or something.
