A thread to post my drawings of character I didn't create, or interactions between character that don't belong in their respective dossiers. The pieces may contain spoilers for the storylines of the involved characters.

snuggle bugs (Elphimas, Sharaka)


Sisters of the Fire (Beryl, Sharaka)

Sisters of the Flame is really cool! I love that they're sharing the fire.

Thank you! I didn't know that card existed :D Though I have to admit the original title was Sisters of the Fire, to play on the significance that exact word has for both of them, and for some reason it ended up as "Flame". Which title do you think is better?

The idea for this piece originated from the fact both of them have a troubled relationship with the symbols of their own power; Beryl had to stop fearing the Fire by accepting it, while Sharaka has the disturbing tendency to offer herself as fuel for it, both figuratively and literally.

Fortunately Beryl is coming to terms with her problems, and I can only hope Sharaka will too. I also think they would have interesting interactions! Once Sharaka stops hitting on Beryl and Aloise both, I mean.

For whatever reason, I always remember that card in conjunction with Brothers of Fire. These are the cards with which I learned to play Magic, so I tend to know them better than newer ones. Also, I just love that their original creature types were "Sisters" and "Brothers," respectively.

As for the title of this piece, I think both are perfectly fine. As you said, "Fire" has a certain thematic connection, but they are, in the drawing, literally holding a flame. Whichever one you like better, I say go with it.

Fortunately Beryl is coming to terms with her problems, and I can only hope Sharaka will too. I also think they would have interesting interactions! Once Sharaka stops hitting on Beryl and Aloise both, I mean.

Well, you know, she has the feels.

Thank you for commenting and helping me figure out Beryl's attire! :)

burnspine viashino

A collection of doodles, with some reference to illustrate the typical differences between the three varieties of Kwassatian viashino. They're more a spectrum than three separate alternatives, and Sharaka's the living example.

What? I just wanted to draw a naturalistic comparison of the three varieties of Burnspine viashino in relation to my character! I don't know what you're talking about!

...just kidding, I appreciate it a lot :D

Yeah, Huey, these are really cool, but the ones touching foreheads are my favorite, too. I really like the Salt Cliffs one in the middle, too. It reminds me of Nessie.

That made me picture a S.C. viashino under Giant Growth... maybe not Nessie-sized, but still a sobering encounter for a small ship :D

(or maybe a viashino elder, since there's evidence of them growing 18 feet high :takei: )

True Colors

An idea for Pride Month who kept sliding down my schedule; the rather old markers I used for the originals weren't satisfactory so I had to remedy with my astonishing Photoshop skills :D
-As one can read in Healing Path, Sharaka's gender is... complicated; she isn't considered fully female by the standards of the Burnspine Viashino, but their definitions of genders are not very adherent to ours. Elphimas is more clearly nonbinary/agender, so the genderqueer flag was just easier to put in their hands.
-Pansexuality and bisexuality are labels that cover similar orientations; I chose the pan flag for Sharaka because, as I said, genders in her upbringing had different meanings so I think it's more correct she's attracted to any gender rather than both genders.

Very nice! I like that look of pride you can see in both of their faces.

Aw, these are great! I love them!
