Wow, it's been an eternity since I've posted something here on dA (I'm more active on Instagram, you can find me via klein.liz lol) and since I've drawn something... bigger, in general. Most stuff I've drawn over the past 2 years were just some sketches. Artblock of doom.
Anyways, over here you can see some of my OCs, in fact the remaining family of Xerxes (the one at the top that looks like he's pretty angry... or rather desperate).
In the past, the three siblings Irinia, Rajak and Xerxes (the children in the bottom center, from left to right) were a unit of love and companionship. That was before the tragedy happened - which started with the death of their parents and ended with Xerxes leaving his siblings behind. Dramatic backstory for the main character - accomplished.
Xerxes is on a journey to get rid of... SOMETHING, while Rajak keeps an eye on their sister and takes care of her. He knows exactly why Xerxes left without even telling his sister goodbye and always keeps in touch with Xerxes during his journey.
Irinia on the other side is devastated and feels left out by her brothers. She has no idea what had happened back then when their parents died and why Xerxes left or whether he's even still alive.
Oh and btw Rajak isn't connected to his siblings by blood, he was adopted by Irinia and Xerxes' parents in the past. That's why he shares the same marks on the cheeks: Those show that he's part of that exact family (every family's got a different kind of mark that is drawn onto the children's cheeks when they reach a certain age).
