Two Mothers

Watched National Geographics "Amazing Planet"
Loved how the narrator referred to the Earth as " ...a restless blue planet with a red and violent soul; powered by the molten rock that lies beneath, it explodes, slithers, jerks and sloshes. And sometimes kills" When describing the Earth and its molten magma core.

And so I pictured a volatile indifferent and yet giving Mother Earth and separate from her slower to anger daughter Mother Nature.
 Her hair is molten magma and always flowing, her body is water and the waves, while her limbs are the  metal and rock of her crust. She is the dancing partner of Father Moon, forever waltzing together.
Her hair is the tangle and upward reaching plants that bend to gravity, her body is all wood and bark with moss grown in to her torso, Her ears are where the Fairies inherited theirs from because she is the mother of the trees and plants and the grandmother of the Fey.

A wonderful Poem

I recently encountered a beautiful poem by Hafiz, 
It goes: 

Even after all this time
the sun never says to the earth, "You owe Me."
Look what happens with a love like that,
It lights up the Whole Sky.

And so this was created, through Ruby and Skylark's friendship.
the song belongs to freesound.org and the characters are mine.

Have some stuff

So I've been sketching again, mostly bleh things but once in a while I get inspired. Mostly about Impure Rubies, since I made it its own blog.
Re-edited (again) the Prologue in honor of it.
Been lurking about tvtropes pages like this one Characterization Tropes and I've been using Flashnote to just jot down everything from call backs to the fourth book and before that I want to embed in the first one, to create a cool Fridge brilliance effect like the Harry Potter series.
Also places to explain and plan out believable relationships between my characters, and to compile various tidbits of info in one neat place. And Q10 to actually start type out something; its Pavlovian or something, the way hearing these click clack noises and the shiing of the return tab make me want to keep writing.


Idris as an angel, I think, would be very dour and restrained. 
Since as a demon he holds not inhibitions and is permanently happy as he does nothing he doesn't wish to do.

Busts of the most frequent characters in Impure Rubies. More of a study in face shapes and jaws.

More Animation Homework and Flashes

New Character tiems! This is Cuervo: He's a smooth and easy going guy with a sweet beard and the ability to transform into a raven and vice-versa:

And here is a walking Ruby who is later joined by Cuervo:
Not shown here is how Ruby later made him beg for death as she plucked his flight wings out one by one and made him get her a new cigarette.

March 1, 2012


Haven't drawn much, and been mostly sketching with pencil, but am taking animation principle class.
Check it, first flipbook:
60 some index cards sacrificed for the greater good.
And I had another assignment due, but I stopped halfway thru at one in the morning to draw on Art Weaver.
Just because.
Love those brushes.

"LOVE ME." His smile says.
And Finally the rollercoaster;
