After the hydra

When the knights in dented armor rode back to the citadel, they found the gates closed and bridges drawn. They shouted, banged on their shields and made a great din until the mayor herself climbed on the battlements. "And who might you be?" she asked from on high. "Wha!" exclaimed the one who seemed to lead the party. "We are defenders of these lands, returned from defeating the terrible hydra!" "Really! Lookouts up and down the coast sent word they saw it fly over the sea, riddled with spears and arrows but otherwise unfazed. For all we know it will come back tomorrow with renewed hunger." The leading knight stood taller in the saddle. "

On the horizon, a string of lights revealed freighters waiting their turn to enter port, some twenty kilometers to the north, like they had for thousands of years. Brilliant lights shone all along the curving shore in that direction, only fading as they came closer, through one sedated coastal town after another.

A worldbuilding manifesto

(Or: a discussion of science fiction clichés) Long ago, I created a space opera universe, with high hopes of setting all kinds of awesome stories in it. That didn't work out. Took me years to write just one. Even writing down all I knew about the setting didn't help. After some reworking, it finally yielded another story written by a friend, and a forum-based roleplaying adventure. And that was all. My third attempt at worldbuilding came much later, and went straight to science-fantasy. But even though almost everything changed, most of my old principles turned out to have aged just fine. So here they (still) are. Enjoy.Earth should not

Flexible fencing animation!!

Flexible fencing animation!!

It's still absolutely unbelievable but it's real!! 😍😍😍 I got to say this whole year was really tough for me because I just can't do anything with my love for drawing contortion and flexible characters but I almost stopped sharing it on DA because I have this weird feeling that people think this theme is too old and beaten... I'm constantly afraid that I upload one more contortionist and someone would say they've had enough of it and I should go out of my comfort zone more often for fresh air or something... It took me almost a year to post this picture of Pierrot that I actually drew in February, I just... absolutely
