Sketch Dump #1

My very first sketch dump. Woohoo!
First up are a series of character concepts for I story I probably won't ever write. Drawn because I wanted to play in grayscale.

Fun design inspired by something online, and two character concepts for a different story I probably won't write.

A "just for fun" character and her pet.

 Finished this about five minutes ago, more character concepts. Belongs to the second storyline I mentioned.

As you might have guessed, I have lots of story ideas that I'm not really doing anything with. I mostly keep them around so I can abuse the characters when I'm bored.
As of writing this I have:
4 ideas that I could turn into books if I had the motivation.
4 ideas that I want to turn into video/board games but lack motivation
7 ideas that are missing key details for me to turn into books
1 fully developed world that has no real use
and countless ideas that I gave up on that will one day be reincarnated in a way that makes much more sense than the original.

Yeah, I don't think I'm EVER going to run out of ideas.

Deliver milk to the villages

Mercs of Meleee mission six is finished. I wrote a short story to go with my entry.


"Our poor neighbor villages are starving! Go and deliver some milk to them please. It's all we can do for now..."

"This is a bit ridiculous"
("You're the one who volunteered")
A cart carrying the giant milk bottle rattled as it hit a rock.
"I didn't realize I was signing up for this!" Tayne said.
("Too bad") was Kisa's telepathic reply. She rested comfortably, perched on the ox who was towing the excessively heavy cart.
There was a sudden thud, and the ox took off at high speed. Tayne spun around just in time to see the milk bottle rolling away. She dashed off in pursuit.

Kisa, on the other hand, was getting a bumpy ride on the back of a surprised ox. She grabbed the reins in her teeth and tugged on them, bringing the beast to a halt. She dropped down and ran after Tayne.

Tayne was out of sight when she caught up, but was quickly spotted several feet ahead of the milk bottle, braced for impact. Was she going to catch it? A moment later though, she realized just how fast the bottle was accelerating, and that she was going to be crushed. She stood staring, like a deer in headlights.

(“Jump, you dolt!”)
Snapped back to her senses by Kisa’s insult, Tayne jumped, ending up on top of the milk bottle.
Kisa cried, (“How do we stop it!”)
"Who said anything about stopping? I bet we can get there twice as fast this way!”

"I hope the villagers don't mind getting some cream instead......"
Kisa rocketed off a passing rock, landing next to Tayne, and the pair rolled away into the distance.

Painting Practice

Digital painting, that is.

I did this yesterday, just for practice. And I couldn't think of anything better to do.

This took... three hours?
I dunno, I wasn't watching the clock.

It was fun to draw.

Mercs of Meleee

I've joined a group on DeviantArt called Mercs of Meleee (Like melee, only with an extra e to make it more awesome). It's a type of role-playing group. A quick explanaion:
"The Mercs-of-Meleee is a group of dedicated heroes and heroines who risks their lives to take on dangerous missions. Each Deviant can use themselves or their original character and set them out on the missions available. Missions can sometimes include defeating a powerful dragon, saving a princess, or even delivering milk to the nearby poor village."

These are my heros:
If you have trouble reading it you can go to my deviantart page to full-view it.

Their first mission had to slay a dragon. Tayne fights fire with fire to gain victory.

The next job she took was mission 4: Rescue Puffluff the dogfish. Puffluff had been kidnapped by an evil hooded man and was going to be cooked and eaten!

Luckily, the plan went off without a hitch. While Tayne distracted the hooded man (she's good at that), Kisa freed Puffluff and the two slunk away to safety. She signaled Tayne via telepathy, and all three of then fled before the man had time to realize their trick.

That's all I have for now, but expect more of these two in the future, I really enjoy drawing them, and I've got another roleplay group for them to join when I have time.
