the fun-loving and romantic cleric with
Ra’Haj comes from a tiefling tribe in the feywild. He was
banished from the tribe once they had found he worships Cyric,
the Mad God of Trickery. Though Cyric is often associated
with conflict and deception, Ra’Haj is not an evil fellow. He just
enjoys to play pranks on people and have a general good time.
This character was commissioned by: Richard, who sadly
informed me that the lovely Ra’Haj died during battle. He will be
sorely missed indeed!
A spell to bring you inspiration and remove annoying writer’s block.
You Will Need:
✏ Yellow Candle(s)
✏ Pen or Pencil
✏ Fire Safe Dish/Bowl
✏ Bay Leaf
✏ Clear your work space, cleanse the room if needed. Place your candles about you or if you only have one, place it near you.
✏ Place your agate and your apatite to either side of one of the candles
✏ Place your plate or bowl before you and place your bay leaf into it
✏ On your paper write “Writer’s Block” and begin scribbling it out saying “you are banished” repeatedly until satisfied. Put your frustrations and anger into this.
✏ Carefully use your candle to light the paper aflame and place it into your bowl/dish on top of the bay leaf. Let them burn themselves out. While this happens focus on how they are being burned out of your life, like a big wall burning down and setting you free.
✏ Take the ash and throw it out or flush it
✏ Keep your candles lit and return to brainstorming and your writing. When you start to feel stuck again, look at your candle and hold your gemstones in each hand and take a few breaths before continuing.
Note: this is a spell that uses fire and burning, please use proper care and fire safety
A quick drawing warm-up and tribute to my favourite cartoon series, Avatar the Last Airbender. This series is one of the major reasons I decided to pursue animation, ( and it always inspires me when I’m at a low or have an art block)!
Keep making magical stories and artwork, Bryan & Mike ( plus the avatar team). You guys rock~
Draco ran his finger along the rim of his empty glass absently. The edges of his vision swam as he looked up at the bartender who raised a single perfectly groomed eyebrow at him.
“Another?” she asked.
Draco closed his eyes briefly, squeezing them until they ached, “Bring me… whatever’s next on the menu.”
“Yeah, alright,” she smirked, taking his empty glass, “What did you think about the French 75 then?”
“Nice, lovely,” Draco said absently, not entirely sure he could remember precisely what the last drink had tasted like.
“One Dark n’ Stormy, comin’ up,” she said brightly.
Draco sighed he fished a few more muggle notes from his pocket and shoved it on the other side of the bar. She had been very friendly all night not that he was surprised. There weren’t many people in the bar on a tuesday evening, much less a sad drunk wizard who was likely overpaying a great deal because he honestly couldn’t be arsed to check the numbers on his flimsy paper money.
He ignored her attempts at conversation when she returned and took the tall glass of what tasted like rum and ginger beer. Draco was prepared to stumble through something approximating a conversation when someone sat beside him, ordering a rum and coke and sending her off.
Draco blinked, his brow furrowing, the voice beside him had sounded familiar. Draco turned slowly so his head wouldn’t fall off and found the other bloke watching him curiously. The other bloke that looked remarkably, disturbingly, identical to Harry Potter.
Potter tried on a hesitant smile, “What’s a pretty thing like you doing in a place like this?”
If you find yourself artistically stuck in a rut (aka infamous “writer’s block” and such) make something with the sole purpose of destroying it.
Write lyrics to a song, a poem, a short story. Or try to remember your favourite childhood fairytale by heart. Paint something, with any medium. Draw a doodle, fill up a page completely blue with one single ink pen, fill up a scrap of paper with little spirals or “hello” word. Bake something, sew something.
Sew the ugliest pillow ever, draw the ugliest horse ever, write the ugliest rhyme ever. As long as you commit to it. Go overboard.
Then bury it, toss it, flush it, give it to your dog to chew, to your cat to pee on it, burn it.
Destroy it, even if you grew attached, weirdly, to it, even if you ended up liking whatever it was.
Make it, commit to it, no matter how silly. Then destroy it.
You might want to keep the pieces for a charm, for next time you might feel blocked. Or not.
The proces of making and then destroying something will get you unstuck ;)
