Wisps of black smoke greeted a morning sun as its first rays peered through thick clouds over the valley, revealing what yesterday was a lush green forest; today, however, the light found nothing in the valley but blackened ash, soot, and disintegrated ruins of metal and scrap.  Nothing that called this area home still lived to bear witness of the massive fireball that had descended from the sky last night -- not even the nocturnal beasts of the valley could escape the destruction borne down upon them without warning. Yet, while most creatures would have the good sense to stay away from lifeless charred remains, the scene also drew those of

Nano 2012 - Chapter 1
My name is Arlio ... or at least I think it is; I can't seem to remember anything else.  Somebody was shouting my name; I think I can recall that much.  And a firm grip on my arm.  And some pleading that we would survive this storm together.  But who were they?  What was going on?  I have no image of them in my mind; only the rough seas and harsh winds that tore us apart. I think I can hear them calling still.  Calling my name.  But I can't be sure.  It doesn't sound quite like their voice.  Would I even be able to recognize it as their voice if it was?  And the name doesn't ring the same in my ears.  No, that is certainly not my name ... so

Nano 2012 - Prologue
The night was stormy and dark, a tumultuous cascade of rolling black shadows as fierce winds whipped the rain down in lashes.  Few creatures abided this weather, most of them settling in their dens, nests, burrows or roosts as they waited out the storm.  Such storms were uncommon features, but not unrecorded, as they always blew in from the western ocean.  Trees took the brunt of the winds, with a few weaker ones being the first to topple or uproot as their stronger counterparts stood in firm defiance of the gales, almost laughing as the rain pelted through them. Maybe there was a moon out tonight, but underneath these roiling thunderheads i

Day 29 [Nanowrimo 2017]
This year marks my 10th Nanoversary; so, I'll be posting (and updating) my dA journal with each day.  Thirty days of updates!  Can I do it ... or will I just spend too much time surfing YouTube?Day 29:I started today not knowing what exactly I wanted to write.  I ended it by combining three separate plot threads and seguing into an important scene that has already been (to some extent) planned out. Oh, and WE HAVE REACHED 50K!  My official tally is at 50,117 and there's still one day left in November! Day 28:So that uncomfortable chapter from last week?  The internal editor finally drew a line in the said and demanded it be rewritten to ton

So....
I sometimes joke that every time I'm looking for a book to read, I need a new library card.  The last one I had was made of green cardstock; this one's a laminated plastic cutout with a barcode on the back (and I did not opt for the keychain version). So which novel is it?  Well, it's the first volume in a trilogy by an established author of fantasy fiction.  Which is apparently part of a larger chronology.  The book includes a map and other illustrations.  The blurb on the back cover only summarizes about the first two chapters of the story, barely enough time to see more than introductions of its central characters (actual chapter count is

Switch Day...
I was working at 6 a.m. today.  When I arrived, I saw three people gathered by the door waiting for the store to open (at 7am) so they could pick up Nintendo's new console.  I also noted two cars parked in the lot presumably with a few more people waiting. I don't know how many people there were by 7 when the store opened, but I did hear that the electronics department hit their day's sales target by just 10am.  And they even still had some consoles in stock by time I left at 3. So it wasn't crazy (as the Wii and PS3 launches were), but it wasn't bad either.

Hi fellow Kya Dark Lineage fan, 

There's a person who's very talented out there who wants to create a Kya game. He made a 3D Kya model etc. Gameplays of his work can be found on the Kya Dark Lineage Fanclub group: www.facebook.com/groups/499738… If you don't trust this link then that's fine, you can search it by name: Kya Dark Lineage. He also has a Tumblr website with his commentary: kyadarklineage2.tumblr.com

Please, join this group and leave a comment. He deserves the praise for his hard work. With this we can let the community grow. Maybe we can get a sequel someday after 15 years. Thank you in advance!

Best regards. :)

So where did you dig up this fossil?  Sure, I played Kya during the PS2 era and it was fun at the time, but I have no lasting interest in it -- I've moved on and haven't looked back.

And you probably found a random comment I left on someone's art like 10 years ago and wondered if I was still following it?  Nah.  I really don't follow many games, and much less the development stories behind them.  If or when it reaches the point of an actual reveal trailer, THEN I might go "hey, that name sounds kinda familiar"....

I have literally never been asked that before.

If you did, I would pay to draw Sora, Kairi, and Riku as multi-colored adult lions, like you did in the past.
