Underworld: Dechrekhyn

November 15, 2008

Another conceptual sketch.  These are the amphibious dead souls, wallowing in the purgatory called Blouedvelth, bickering with and scrambling over each other for access to bloodroot, which gives them more substance and, when enough is consumed, allows a dechrekhyn to move beyond the swamp of sanguine murk and onto slightly better abodes as they make […]

In the Underworld: Blellivi Trisk

November 15, 2008

Burning the midnight oil tonight; here’s a pencil sketch of a sprawling and towering castle located in the remote regions of an underworld swamp of blood where amphibious dead souls suck and chew on bloodroot, trying to get their fill. If you’d been walking through that wet and drab nightmarish mess for too many hours, […]

Sketch: Labyrinthine Passages in the Underworld

November 14, 2008

A conceptual sketch done with one of those mechanical pencils. This is a labrynthine cavern in the underworld where dead souls whom have recently gained bekthyn, or corporeal “starter bodies,” wander, trying to find their way further into the underworld, searching for their destination, the Heart of the World. The first image is a detail.  […]

Moussa in the Underworld

November 14, 2008

The bidi–sketches of which I’ve posted on this blog before–play a part in that, as gatekeepers to the underworld, although they also have a complex existence of their own. I originally thought that I […]

Another revision of an earlier piece, colorized.  

My Imaginary Fantastical Planet is a Racist Epithet? Fuck.

July 31, 2008

So it has come to my attention that the word “ubda” is a kind of racist slang for a ghetto African American, somehow akin to calling someone a honkey-ass cracker.  At least that’s what this urban dictionary tells me: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Ubda%20Scum Taking this into consideration, I am probably going to be dropping the Ubda from Lo-Ubda […]

Flora and Fauna of Ammarini

On Ammarini (the prairie), a Zazelle chomps on a rock cherry shrub.

Among the Spires

A colored pencil piece.  A detail of it is for sale over at Thirsty Cavern, if you like to buy stuff.

Colorful World

May 18, 2008

To borrow and tweak Louis Armstrong: “And I say to myself/what a colorful world” Watercolor and pastel pencil.  An unspecified location on the planet June.  Painted last year, in the springtime, if I remember correctly.
