Fantasy Monsters Concept Art
I've been inactive for quite some time. I have been busy with a project, that I am afraid I am not yet allowed to exhibit here (client's request). In the meantime I shall risk spamming my page's wall with black and white sketches that I have drawn between breaks, as a way to deal with anxiety. I hope you like them, and I apologize for the absence.

From left to right: Centaur, Bugbear, Chimera, Troll

Here is a concept art for another DnD character, Rickert the Grey Elf Wizard. The name is an alias as he is a wanted criminal, for practicing some forbidden schools of magic (Can you guess which?). This is represented by his spells which are meant to debuff enemies to oblivion, or as one player aptly put it: "He gives everyone typhus". Funny thing is, though he was designed to be as gloomy and unlikable as possible, he ended up being well liked by the team, as his debuff spells made life easier for the the party, while allowing the other players to shine in combat and have their "big hero" moments.

Two friends of mine work on a small pixel video game, taking place in a setting with animal-human hybrid characters and shapeshifters. They requested I design a character for them, so I made this beaver plumber. A common level enemy, an npc or whatever they will have him do...

DnD Sea Session Characters
I've been inactive for quite some time. I have been busy with a project, that I am afraid I am not yet allowed to exhibit here (client's request). In the meantime I shall risk spamming my page's wall with black and white sketches that I have drawn between breaks, as a way to deal with anxiety. I hope you like them, and I apologize for the absence.

So, starting off, these are some character concepts for a Dungeons and Dragons one-shot campaign.
1) The Sea Sisters: From left to right: Yenibaba, Babanoga, and Korizma. The three Sea Hags that live near a small fishing town. They make a habit of abducting and devouring infants and bear a strong hatred for the nearby wood elves, seeking to blame the kidnapping on them.
2) Eino, the Fisherman's Son: A young boy, Eino sought out the help of the hag sisters, in order to cure his sick father, the fisher Aabel. The hags accepted on the condition that the boy becomes their thrall. Taking out his right eye, the witches made a "Hag Eye" (basically an amulet working as a camera) and sent Eino to spy on the town, in the form of a cat. In this manner Eino has been aiding the hags in their kidnappings, but his guilt is pushing him to seek aid from the heroes of the session.
3) Tazreul the Primeval Sea-Drake: More ancient than most beings can imagine, Tazreul has been around before the so called "True Dragons" evolved. He is nonetheless snobbed by his larger Dragon cousins, who do not recognise such a small, slithering being as one of their own. This has led him to possess a deep rooted hatred for them. Unlike most Dragons, Tazreul values knowledge over gold and is mostly indifferent to those who pass by his territory, being as likely to devour them as he is to aid them, should they amuse him. He also prides himself to be a "Master of Riddles", though most of his conundrums have grown old and are easily solved. He is Primeval after all, and very few are willing to update him on the latest enigmas. Tazreul's nest lies near the hags' lair and must be encountered in order for our heroes to make their way to the Sea Sisters. He can be fought if the party is daring (or stupid enough) but he is meant to serve as a challenge of wits and an NPC, being well learned in nearly all lore and languages.

Drawing Hippodromes sucks...Why did they have to exhibit all those statues and obelisks in the middle of the arena? Aaarghhh... This is killing me!
I've been listening to some songs from a well known (one could say historic) Greek composer, Mikis Theodorakis and I was surprised to see one of his most songs*, "There is but one swallow" (I did all I could with translating it) performed in German! Of course I had heard that his songs had been performed in other countries (and therefor languages) but this is the first time I hear it... Perhaps any German speakers watching me will find it enjoyable, or at least interesting.  Unfortunately I could not find it performed in English :(



* Well... when I say his, I mean the composition of the music is his. The lyrics is a poem of the Greek Poet Odysseas Elytis.

Indeed! :'(

Thanks for remembering. No special sketch from me I'm afraid. I've been extremely busy lately. But HOPEFULLY I will be uploading the story of Kassiani next week.

I almost forgot, but then a teacher-friend (and fellow medieval-enthusiast) reminded me. He had been teaching medieval history to his students this semester and they started the year with Justinian and Theodora and ended with the Fall of Constantinople. He said one of his proudest teaching moments was when his students (at the end of that lecture) said, "So...can we form a crusade and take back Constantinople?" Hahah. Teaching done right. :D

Ooooh! Very excited to see it!

I just returned from Greece, but was torn for I really wished to stay. Alas.

Haha! Yah I've seen this one :P

I am really happy to hear you've had a good time in Greece! I am always glad when people tell me they plan to spend time in Greece, but I am also a bit worried: my compatriots are rather hot-tempered lately (crisis and all) and they drive like lunatics. So I hope people were helpful and that noone spoiled your good time while you were here.

Which places did you visit?

Oh nono I didn't notice anything about a crisis or people being polarized, and not even refugees or anything. The locals were all great. Might've had to do with the area I was in. It was a village called Kantia, north-east Peloponnesos. You're right about people driving like lunatics though.:P (Lick) No man, if anything the abundance of tourists bothered me more. I wanted to see Greeks, but I was surrounded by Dutch normies like myself. Visited Nafplio nearby, incredibly scenic, and there was a 14th century Byzantine fortress built on the cliff from the Palaiologan period which I DIDNT GET TO SEE from the inside. Drove me mad.
And Epidaurus, it was on the schedule but due to complications I didn't get to see it either. Despite these setbacks it was still damn amazing. I am honestly jealous that i'm not Greek myself. ...Apart the economic issues and being swamped by stray-cats and dogs.
