Fantasy Art

It's been a little while since I've posted any new art. I have plenty that has just been sitting around on my hard drive. I figure it's about time to share it.

Fantasy Characters Chapter 4

 Back once more with another group of my recently created fantasy characters. I'm almost done with this series. But I have two follow ups to go with it.

First up is Mia Shadowmend. A mysterious witch who haunts the town from time to time.

King Underlander II rules with a firm yet fair hand.

 Qheenkel is the queen of the undead, a lich of unmatched power who wants to rule the living as well as the dead.

Rovonn is a bugbear chieftain and a fierce warrior who terrorizes the countryside.

Broddi Pennington, a werewolf who calls the forests of the kingdom his home.

Fantasy Characters Chapter 3

Continuing with my fantasy characters I created and drew up recently.

Let's start out with the Bard, Trixi Rarozi.

Talented with a beautiful voice and a knack for verse, she is always upbeat and cheerful.

The Inn Keepers Manfred and Mahald Greyswift look out for the adventuresome when they are in town and not on a quest.

Last one for now. Mistia Grail, the Sage. Ancient and wise, keeper of much lore and knowledge.

There are a few more yet to be revealed but this is all for now. Until next time.

Fantasy Characters Chapter 2

Here are four more of the characters I drew up recently.

First up we have the wizard Othar Ivys.

He's a bit past his prime and his spells don't always work out right anymore. But he perseveres.

Next we have a wandering barbarian nomad known as Vith Furclan. 

She has left her people to go exploring and is always restless and never stays in one place for too long.

Ronald the Righteous is the Cleric.

His faith has been sorely tested of late but that has only made it grow that much stronger.

Finally we come to the noble Knight, Giffard of the Mountains.

Much like his name, he is strong and immovable.

Fantasy Characters Chapter 1

Time to resurrect this blog.

The past nearly a year has been rough. But I have been creative of late and needed to do something with it.

I've drawn up a series of fantasy characters that I'll be posting about for the foreseeable future.

 First up is a warrior or fighter who goes by the name of Storm Proudsword.

He is heroic and noble, not interested in personal gain. He lives to fight for the good of people.
 Next up we have a mischievous thief known as Gina Crowmark.

She is quiet and dangerous, never to be fully trusted.

Thoughts on my Writing

Just a few random thoughts and observations on where I'm at with my writing these days.

  • I'm still not writing as much as I used to. Years ago I would get in nearly two thousand words a day. For the past few months I've been topping out at one thousand a night. Usually closer to five hundred. The trade off is that I've been writing consistently for a much longer time. I'm closing in on a year now. Before it was only for about a month or so then I'd stop writing for a few months. I seem to be pacing myself a little better.
  • I have multiple stories in progress at the same time. Usually three different stories going on. Right now that is the pulp hero story I'm working on for an upcoming anthology. Another Challenger Rangers story for the next collection of those I self-publish. And I just started a new series of Junior Challenger Rangers spin-off stories. At other times I have my sword and sorcery tales I'm telling. I've also done some writing on my own pulp horror/hero story. I'm working on a science fiction styled story as well.
  • I find having different things to write about is good. If I get stuck on one, I can take a break and work on one of the others for a little while.
  • I also don't see myself writing any actual novels. I'm most comfortable with the short story format. I've written novels in the past and I've never been happy with any of them. So for the time being I think the shorter stuff is what I'll stick to.

If you're interested in checking out my stuff it can be found at Amazon

I'm also looking into setting up a Patreon Page, but that is still in the future.
