TCoRO Sketches IV by zorm TCoRO Sketches IV by zorm
Sketchystuffies, don't care if it's a bit wonky. Some minor Rha-kan'Ocka characters from the recent chapters.

Commentplz. Zorm hates silence. :( :(

Tl;dr.

Aaschgh'rd G'Uhageid
Ponytail guy in the upper right corner, after his hair has grown a bit back after the daimon attack (and with these guys the hair grows thick and faaast). About 14000 years old, he's one of Guarh's older sons, or what's left now. Khran-Av'ees and his accidentally summoned shadow-monster caused the death of six of his brothers. He managed to survive due to his skill in spellweaving, but became permanently disfigured (though, a common ailment those lands...), lost some teeth and fingers, etc.

As a character, he's broody, impulsive, and quite short-tempered like his mother. The mishap of getting trice widowed hasn't improved his nature. He's also the bloke whom Khran-Av'ees deemed 'disturbingly familiar' till the greatest degree. Shows that our Dark Lord doesn't much go for mirrors. XD


Ghgalev'jenschus G'Uhageid (Ghgalev)
Ponytail dude #2; another son of Guarh's who survived the daimon perils. Equally after his mostly off-burned hair has grown partially back (he and Aaschgh'rd both used to have a good two meters of it) and the skin in his face has knitted together with the aid of some healing spells. He used to be quite much in the status of a prettyb0i princeling amongst the girls of Uhageiden Rho-dkhl'haakgz, but after the scarring and acquiring a prominent disability to his left arm, he plummeted down in the ranks.

Ghgalev is around 10500. The facial markings are a clan symbol amid the G'Uhageids; according to the old tradition the men come to their inheritance at the age of 10000 and become branded with the marks. Guarh shares the same symbols, as does King Lhietd.
Yesyes, I know he kinda looks like Qui-Gon Jinn. It wasn't intentional. XD


Gho-Ni'ngobsch
Neckless, stooping oldtimer in the middle. He's one of Khran-Av'ees's oldest battlefield friends, and currently an officer in the warlord's inmost circle. At the age of 27000 he hasn't lost much of his youth-time strength, even if his hair has gone gray and skin rather sagging.


Ghaagh'urih
The last fellow who looks like a Nordic troll. Akin to Khran-Av'ees, he isn't a boorish dolt despite his appearance. He's one of the few around the warlord who can read and write well the complicated elven hieroglyphs and knows a bit more about history and alchemy than a slug's slimetrail. Being cautious by nature, quick, 7.5 feet tall, and almost annoyingly loyal, he was suitable for one of Khran-Av'ees's bodyguards.

I haven't determined his age, but he's maybe around 18000. Ghaagh'urih fancies girls with glasses. XD


Did someone read all that tripe?

The Curse of Rha-kan'Ocka belongs to me.

I'm not going to even BEGIN to try saying any of those names . . I pronounce my native language weirdly enough! Wonderful work, yet again!

I like the pipe Aaschgh'rd G'Uhageid is smoking. It's fun. And generally, he and his brother have great poses. I love your detail-filled sketches. ^^

"Aaschgh'rd G'Uhageid

I think you messed up Ghaagh'urih and Gho-Ni'ngobsch with the G'Uhageids. ;)

Like someone just said.. I can't seem to find a proper way to pronounce the names, but I'm amazed that you even made yourself a system for that. I've allways been to lazy for that..
but anyway I just love this. It's so deitailed and the designs are just awsome, and so.. different. I especially love the look of Gho-Ni (okay if I call him that?). He looks so much like those crazy old mands who actually are everyhting else but crazy. =P

:lol: Now that so many people are curious at the same time, I'm starting to wonder whether I should write some rudimentary pronunciation guide. It's a bit difficult however, since I have no proper knowledge of the phonetic alphabet. I've made rules here and there, such as that 'sch' is like in German, the wovels are wide and articulate as in Finnish, etc. The apostrophes, where they are, stand for the syllable or letter to stress.

Gho-Ni'n would be his proper family name. XD The elvish language sometimes melds the individual name right into it; or sometimes it's separate, though mostly in very old families (the G'Uhageids). Yeah, I've made things a bit tricksy. ^^; I've explained some of these things in the story itself, though.

Ow, sounds complicated. I made a fool of myself trying to pronouce it all in the way you just explained. xD bet it's cool anyway and yes. a guide like that would be.. cool? I havn't read your story yet though, but I'm planning to do it someday when I'm not so busy. :3

I whipped up a little pronunciation guide now that I had a couple of days free time: [link]

Audio files would still be much better concerning the names, but I really need to get a better microphone if I wanted to do that. XD My current is just one of those cheaplings that crackle and snap and make everything sound like a really bad phoneline.

I'd really love to see the tattoo/branding/woad separately. It looks very cool.

Which character's, specifically? :) I might doodle some reff sheets if I have time.

Ghaagh'urih and Aaschgh'rd G'Uhageid specifically, though the others' markings are cool, too.

I like these lads, especially Gho-Ni'ngobsch and Ghaagh'urih! (guttural sounds are no problem, I'm a Scot. :XD:) Ghaagh'urih just looks so damn nice and cheerful, despite the big bloody axe - and he's smart, you say? *puts her glasses on and smiles winsomely*

Your muscle definition is stunning as always!

Thanks! Well, since this universe is hardly black-and-white, a person's basic character is not necessarily dictated by the side he works to. ;) Basically Ghaagh'urih is a nice person, and he's a little shy about his liking for books. XD

Hee, I love the Scottish language. :D Never get tired of listening to, say, John Rhys-Davies's voicework.

Mostly I'm pondering how to pronounce the damn names in the first place! They all seem like something you need to have a glass of water for first and then gurgle out.. no offense

Re-replying since you were asking about the pronunciation too. I wrote a tiny guide thingy: [link]

That's the point of the elven language. ;) It's supposed to sound completely horrible. I do have a pronunciation system to it, but I'd need to start recording and uploading audio files in order to get the names correctly through. And, yes, they involve guttural sounds and generally harsh consonants spoken at the back of your mouth. Might get rather painful after a while.
