D&D Character Backstory

Draft of my character’s backstory for our group’s upcoming Pathfinder game. Needs a bit of tweeking still, but overall it’s good I think.

(The game is in the Pathfinder  – Dungeons and Dragons “3.75” – rules, using the Forgotten Realms campaign setting. All regions, world setting, etc. (c) Wizards of the Coast).

I made pillows!

I made a couple of pillows for my apartment next year (they’ll live in my dorm room for now).

Basically these came about after I screwed up printing t-shirts in screen printing class. One side came out fine, the other side didn’t, so I cut up the good side and used leftover fabric from another project to make the back, and viola! Pillow!

The back is fleece, and has overlapping panels with an opening so the pillow form can be removed and the case washed. I french seamed the edges so they’re extra sturdy.

All in all, not too bad.

Those last two hit a bit close to home…

This is still fairly early, but you’re a person who wants – no, who NEEDS a full eight hours or more. The only way to guarantee that is to cut the BS and hit the hay. You probably aren’t a huge television watcher, because it seems as if the best programs don’t typically begin ‘til 9 or so. How can you even think…

Commission Example – Flame In The Dark

A practice digital painting, which I’ll use as an example of this particular style once I open commissions (hopefully soon).

This one was done entirely in Photoshop with a Wacom Graphire4 tablet (which they don’t actually make anymore).

Turned out pretty well, I think. Not 100% satisfied with the flame, but I like how the general shading and atmosphere looks.

“Angels” – Rough Draft

The following is a rough draft of a new short story about two angels – one of the Christian God, one of mother nature. It needs a bit of editing, and a better title, but hey, that’s what rough drafts are for!

If you have any comments or critique, let me know!
