exile draws


the season 3 announcement cleared my skin, watered my crops, paid my bills, and filled my gas tank

also i just blitzed through all of akito the exiled a few weeks ago and my brain wouldn’t let me live until i drew two things: car freshener kingsley, and a ship that I desperately hope exists purely so that it can be called “orange julius”

Phew I finally finished a 3/4th’s bust. Don’t feel like doing legs or hands sorry, but yeah. I have no idea why he is wearing two sashes on his shoulders, but its there. Maybe a symbol or something? I don’t really know. He still has all of his scars from his youthful years though with a few more over time, but nothing too deep. Honestly I’m pretty proud of this considering I’ve been in an art block lately, but it hurt to draw Repard’s exile verse the whole time doing this. I still have to finish writing it…but for the moment this is something I guess? I’ve been wanting to do this for awhile, but never got around to it. Always considering if not joining the Blade of Marmora, would he have left the Galra Empire? So this is what came of it.

In December of 2014 I had an epiphany to write a retelling of the Portal games in the context of a medieval/fantasy story. With the help of the indispensable @starry-nightengale, we released the first of what would be a trilogy. Today marks the 1 year anniversary of the posting of “The Trial of the Bow” on fanfiction.net. Since then it has reached over 800 readers from over 35 different countries across the globe. Thank you all so much everyone! This project couldn’t have been possible with out your support :D

The Trial of the Bow: A Portal Retelling

The Heart of the Exile: A Retelling of the Portal2 Fanfiction Blue Sky

The Tale of Melanie: A Poetic Retelling of the Portal 2 mod “Portal Stories: Mel”

(Also, character designs for the three cores, Mel, and Virgil are all based on character designs by @starry-nightengale)
