A collection of some sketches from this last month btwn commissions . 4/10 still to go! also looking through older unfinished stuff to see if I have enough to put together a new sketchbook for one of next years cons / online.
i’ve been commissioning a lot of people recently @ A @… i wanna get more of Ancil/Clyde T m T <333 my babuus.
Please note: there are some changes to Eloise’s history reflected in this (and future) piece(s). These changes are intentional and meant to reflect the slight differences that the novella will have
The very first memory Eloise had was of laying next to her
brothers and sisters beneath the canopy of a covered wagon. She remembered the
sound of crickets, creaking wood, and a huffing horse. The dark didn’t frighten
her, but the pain in her stomach and rising heat of what would turn into a
fever did. She crawled over her siblings to reach the cooler air of outside.
The twinkling stars winked down on her as she curled up on the ground, silently
She didn’t specifically remember her mother finding her and
coaxing her back into the wagon, though she remembered feeling cold despite
being wrapped in a blanket. One of her sisters—she couldn’t remember if it was
Marguerite or Lucindy—gave her water and reassured her that she would be better
in a few days. It would take two weeks, during which time they completed their
long journey from Gloucester to a small plot of land in Acadia. Eloise was too
young to understand how strange it was for her family to move there—much of the
land was already claimed by French, Acadians, and Mi’kmaq.
More of the spooktacular! choochoo spooky train come'n through <3 This time my character Ancil <333333 wear'n his man girdle cuz thats what he does. He’s kinda complacent w/ being haunted by now I think. -COEY! _____
The first set of fantasy redesigns :) (Please open this in another tab to see the details)
Vachir (Mine): Ser Vachir of House Ancile. More of a paladin type. Prefers swing around a sword but also has shielding magic if things get too rough. Designing this is also what prompted me to design a bunch more for different characters.
Design notes: In-game and in my canon, Vachir is from a notable family that’s quite wealthy. So I gave her a full set of plate armor that’s been decorated. The fur collar was an aspect of her normal armor that I wanted to carry over to this design. I made the hilt of the sword quite a bit more fancy than necessary (also to indicate wealth).
Duraa ( @kilshade ): From glancing at his character tag, he’s a bodyguard who made most of his own armor and stole parts of it.
Design notes: Bodyguard translated pretty well to mercenary. I gave him a shield to at least hint at the idea that his job is to protect people/things. This also let me play around with asymmetrical armor designs (especially since the shield would protect the side not as heavily armored). The bottom layer of his armor is a chain-mail shirt. I made the armor on top mismatched to suggest that he’s been putting his armor together piece by piece, although some parts of the armor are obviously part of the same ‘set’. In order to enhance this sense of mismatch, I drew on bunch of different sources for the armor.
The gauntlet, shin armor, waist armor, and shoulders are inspired by plate armor. The visible chain mail shirt takes inspiration form the early middle-ages/vikings. Meanwhile, his torso armor takes inspiration from a combination of football gear and roman legionnaire armor.
There’s like at least four more pages of this in various stages of development. Everyone who let me use their characters has at least one OC used in this project (And thank you all for letting me barrow your characters. I’m enjoying this quite a bit).
“They always make shower sex sound so appealing, but honestly it seems quite dangerous.”
Prompt from @xbrittanyraex I think. It might have been someone else. Tumblr was being Tumblr and did something weird with the ask and now it doesn’t exist anymore.
It was date night in the Ancile household. One of those rare days when neither Vachir nor Etana had work the next day and all the children were out of the house.
Vachir laid sprawled across the couch. Her head on Etana’s lap and her legs dangling off the end. Etana’s attention was glued to the holovid as she absentmindedly massaged Vachir’s scalp.
It was some kind of cheesy old romance vid full of longing looks and anguished declarations of love that inevitably ended with ‘I do’s’. Vachir only paid it half-attention. Etana’s little shakes of her head when the lovers refused to communicate like adults or her pout when circumstances kept them apart was far more entertaining.
“They always make shower sex sound so appealing,” Etana said.
Vachir glanced at the vid. The silhouette of the lovers behind a shower curtain was playing.
“Something interest you?” Vachir said, almost purring.
Etana gave a soft snort.
“Hardly. It just seems dangerous, that’s all,” she said. “Do you know how many couples come into the ER needing stitches because someone slipped and hit their head against something?”
Vachir reached up and stroked her wife’s jaw.
“Don’t tell me it doesn’t sound at least a little exciting,” she teased. “Sliding off your bathrobe. Our bodies pressing together as steam fills the fresher…”
“All enticing for you, perhaps,” Etana said. She bent over and kissed Vachir on the forehead. “But tell me, my Lord, what am I getting out of that scenario?”
Vachir waggled her brows and gestured towards her body.
“Don’t tell me you haven’t thought about pressing this against a wall, Imperial,” she said, briefly flexing her muscles. “Or having a Lord of the Sith towel you dry, massaging your neck?”
Etana laughed at her wife’s antics and kissed her again.
What a project! There is some wicked cool detail on the Anima relic weapons for Paladin, Almace and Ancile. Not to mention, this little lalafell with muttonchops has a really cool glamour to paint too! Remember when I said I wouldn’t touch chainmail again? I’m happy I found a new method to make it go faster, even if it’s relaxing to paint still! He got lots of love in twitch streams, and Patreon patrons will see quite a few steps that went into this piece next month!
Thank you, Naz!!
