No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.

We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

(Dead Poets Society, 1989)

So, for my 1000th post apparently, I present this new sketch of my neglected characters, Lastasis and his elder brother, Jadir.

It’s been a while since I’ve drawn them, and this is sort of a vent-artwork so, yeah.  My poor bbys.  These characters are apart of the one real story that I have mostly fleshed out, beginning to end (Lala being the main character, Didi being a minor but important character)

Lookit this dork.  Look at his smug ass grin and fabulous F-all hair.

Lloki (to be renamed, but he goes by Lloki because he gains sick amusement from it) is my “Jinn” character.  Not 100% bad, not 100% good, but 100% androgynous/can be anything you want him to be, bby.

 There’s a story to him but yup~  Enjoy this wip for now

Photographer Kilian Schönberger created Brothers Grimm Homeland

German photographer Kilian Schönberger recently has presented his new project called “Brothers Grimm’s Homeland”, where author mixed photography with illustration. Big trees, dark homes and moody environment - these are the key elements that connected these photos with legendary Brother Grimm even more. Love it!

Forgot I had a unfinished picture of this dork laying around.

I’mma finish him~Name was Lloki, but i’mma rename him.  Rehash of an old character

"Princesses Playing DnD" by Alexandra V. Mihai

…and my first thought is “That is way too big a group to try and run a game with.”

I’ve been in a group this big. That shit is CHAOTIC AS HELL. Doable if you’re all in sync and are okay with your character not getting a huge amount of attention, otherwise yeah this is way too many people. xD

Combat. Takes. FOREVER.

We have 7/8 in our -Exalted- campaign.

Exalted.

Now if you wanna talk about combat taking forever, come to my table and take a sit-down and learn some shit, my friend. You. don’t. even. know.

But guess what: We still have fun and kick ass because we all get along and have good story-telling abilities with amazing senses of humor.  Plus, you can stunt.

D&D ain’t got shit on us. (though i’ll still play the hell out of it)

About the picture: Pretty~  I like it!
