Wedding Magpies
You can support my work on Patreon (
or on Ko-Fi (!

Find me on the internet:
My wedding present for my best friend and her husband!
The eggs in the nest were deliberately left white because the wedding guests were supposed to colour them and then sign with their names; we ended up with a few more eggs than guests who stayed til the end, but better than the other way around.

Drawing ink and some liquid watercolours as usual!

I did a custom phoenix design a while ago, and one my patrons requested I should do more phoenix variations for this month’s supporter reward. It was A BIT more work than I usually intend to invest in these reward sketches, but I really liked the request.

The silk phoenix lives in tropical rain forests. The name derives from its exceptionally fluffy and soft plumage.

The pygmy phoenix is the smallest known phoenix. What it lacks in size it makes up for with ferocity. As tiny breeds are wont to do. Its body temperature is exceptionally high even for phoenixes.

A Patreon request I got back in spring and ended up liking A LOT. I was dead sure I had posted it back then, but apparently I hadn’t? Whoopsie.
Miscelleanous Sketches 10
You want sketch dumps, I’m gonna give you sketch dumps.
Mostly Patreon requests, and some fanart which miraculously isn’t Tales of Zestiria.
I’m too lazy to tag, so let’s play a game: guess the franchise, and what is original art

I’ve come to the conclusion that my sense of humour is equally shitty no matter which fandom I sketch for, though

I want to do more fandom merch, but my resolve isn’t very strong. Also I will absolutely make the laser violins a things. Some very distant day.

Guys this place is so dead, can I just drag everyone of you to Pillowfort
Tales Of (Zestiria) Sketch Dump 07
Yes this is me delivering all the Tales of Zestiria AUs that nobody ever asked for (well, occasionally, people did). It's almost embarrassing how few of these are actually CANONVERSE, but not embarrassing enough for me to stop.

Tales fans of all ages are encouraged to join the madness on my tumblr ( and *brand new* Pillowfort:
(Pillowfort is also for all normal people out there, though)

As usual I regret nothing, except still not having sketched a sequel to the infamous dumb t-shirt sketch. And not doing this sooner because honestly whoa I could have filled two sketch dumps, I guess.
Also I did a few comic pages that would pretty much blow up the file, sorry (they’re on dumblr, though)

Also I miss Tales of the Gays uhm Rays, RIP. Mileena was my lesbian icon.

The site is still in beta, so you can’t get in without a beta key, BUT you can get one if you donate to them. Or you can just wait until the beta phase runs out.

The site is still a bit buggy due to being in beta phase, but I’m confident that it won’t last forever.

It is easy to use and I can dumb art on it. There is a community where people post photos of their cats, and at least two big ones for artists (and self-promotion of said artists). Random people leave nice comments on your art 3 minutes after posting them.

My only complaint is that there are no communities for a) Metal and b) Tales of Zestiria in general, and I don’t want to be the idiot who has to mod those, but I need them. Shit.

ANYWAY I’ve already stuffed my blog with LOTS of art for you to like, comment, and reblog, and joined a whole bunch of communities, so I’ll never be lonely again. Or something.

MY USERNAME IS TORADH AGAIN because I wanted to be found (still musing whether I should change it to Owlily though…)


Warning: Pillowfort doesn’t allow more than one blog per account, means I’ll have it all in one place: reblogs from other people, my own “art” (don’t come here for the traditional art only, I only do it for gifts and commissions these days, and especially not for the Tolkien fanart or general fantasy stuff), Metal, animal posts, excessive Tales of Zestiria fangirling, who knows whatever. You have been warned.
