Hey, quick questions for drawing reference:

How tall is Balxiros?

Does he have wings and/or a tail?

No wings, no tail, and a bit taller than 7 foot. 

Big blue drachen mage.

Since I’m posting doodles that never made it out of the harddrive, figured I’d unearth this sketch from 2018 based on conversations with @freckleocalypse about what protagonist influences went into my version of Hans Drosselmeyer, one of whom was Westley from The Princess Bride. Then we just made Princess Bride references for about 3 hours.

Hans Drosselmeyer, Sebastian, and David respectively belong to me, @freckleocalypse, and FlappyBat (@NospheraMtu02) over on Twitter.

I completely forgot that i’ve never posted anything about my other Nutcracker-based story.

The Nutcracker Mordau lives in a world where Nutcrackers are kept as pets and any sign of insubordination can mean immediate termination. After his master is killed when the building he’d called home collapses on top of him with no reason why, he’s blamed for it and sentenced to be executed. However he manages to escape from the guards holding him prisoner he runs across two young children who take him as their own toy. Now they travel across the world in search of a hidden kingdom where they can finally escape the reach of the King, who may not be the one pulling the strings.

Last call for hard copy SVI orders here! Closing requests this Friday the 8th.

If you’d like to own a hard copy of my Undertale fancomic “Seems Very Interesting”, check out this post and send your request forthwith.

No worries for anyone who can’t spare the cash, SVI will be free to read as long as Tumblr lives! However, after Tumblr “accidentally” deleted my page for a full 24 hours last year, I can’t guarantee how long that will be.

Also if you want a copy but don’t have the cash right now, don’t sweat. I’ll open up orders again sometime after I get moved over to my next billet this year. I only have so many moments of free time these days, so I try to do things like this in short, hyper-productive bursts only.

Berkley… wasn’t always a very good person.

Wanna listen to our campaign?  They’re all up on this site, under the Radio tab.  Session 6 of “Dead Man” is an excellent starting point!

DM’d by @kaleidraws, as always!

It sat there in the corner.

Berkley tapped his foot.  It was often he’d get impatient as he counted up his recent earnings - an excited kind of impatience, flavored by the thought of what he might purchase with whatever surplus he had.

This, however, felt more like an uncomfortable knot in his gut.

It sat there, silently, in the corner.

Nothing makes me happier than using good storytelling to inspire people. Here’s the drabble I wrote:

I like the thought that the symbol of Kahl he stole off the soldier was an attack of opportunity: Small band of soldiers returning from an obviously lost battle, exhausted and in no position to fight back.

Berkley picks the guy in the back of the pack off as they round a corner and separates him out. The soldier claims he’s got nothing worth stealing, but Berkley knows these guys are paid up front. The soldier tries to get froggy, and after Berk easily puts him down with a shank to the neck, he shakes out the corpse.

Sure enough, aside from a terribly dull and dented blade, completely worn-through boots, and a still gaping, gangrenous wound in his side, the soldier only had an old emblem to that goody-good Kahl on him.

Berk didn’t even need the cash at the moment, but why pass up such an easy target?

That’d definitely be something that would make a man think long and hard as he dragged the body into a quiet corner of the alley near the accumulated refuse of the surrounding domiciles.

Of course he would keep it. It was the only thing that looked hockable on the guy. Talk about a waste of time, could’ve at least had a couple a coin to pay for the drink he left in the mead hall to go after the guy.

Rise of Balxiros Sketches!

Have I mentioned how much I love Spot and Berkley?! Have some doggy kisses

My first impression of Balxiros was that he had a southern accent, so of course I had to draw him in a cowboy hat. (How he fits that glorious mane under there, nobody knows.)

Part 1 of a short Squigglydigg vs Balxiros shitpost! I was um…

inspired.

Part 2, and my personal favorite! Turns out that plain old baseball bats work just as well as magic. (Moral of the story: don’t kill characters Squigg is attached to.)
