Hear my proposal, dear girl. Let me take the lad, and you are free of me forever. I will never interfere with or harm you again. Or, keep the lad with you, and you will never be safe from me. I will have my due.
Again, haven’t done any new art in a while - but here are some re-designs I did in December when I tried to scrape back some drawing motivation. Some turned out better than others (Alistair and Fergus are probably my favourites). Was gonna colour them but never got around it. :/

feelings for her has.”’ Hope you like! ᕦ⁞ ✿ ᵒ̌ ᴥ ᵒ̌ ✿ ⁞ᕤ
Such relief in his throat, tearing
words from his tongue, “thank the Maker.”
Finally she is awake. She blinks once, twice, as though surprise to find he
cares she lives. Closing the space between them, his hands hard on her arms as
he examines her. In the pond behind him, frogs croak and cattails rustle
amongst the reeds. Alistair thinks he might hear Flemeth chuckling, but he pays
it no mind. Without hesitation, he pulls her into a deep hug. Her surprise
again, stiffness that slowly eases, her hands patting at his back.
It’s a feeling that doesn’t
fade. After every battle, he looks for her and when he finds her standing – the
relief. Crushing through bone and
blood, a kick to his gut. She pulls an arrow from the darkspawn, blackened
blood dripping down wood and metal, and a loose strand of hair curls at her
cheek. She doesn’t know the look he casts at her back, shoulders and spine, the
shuddering breaths he takes. He tells himself it’s because they are the last
Grey Wardens of Ferelden. Alistair tells himself it’s because he couldn’t do
She crosses her arms and throws
her head back, laughs at something Zevran tells her. The elf is grinning,
pleased with her laughter, continues speaking. The smile remains on her face as
she replies, and he watches as a hand slips loose. She always talks with her
hands. Alistair turns his face away when her gaze settles on him momentarily.
He fights the threatening blush, the heat at the back of his neck. He looks
back once the laughter returns, continues dragging the sharpening stone down
his blade. Each pass earns a deeper glare in Zevran’s direction.
The next battle is a mess.
Barely able to hear her shouted instructions, unable to see further than what
is just over his shield. Striking out, pulling in. A bash against a
breastplate, charging forward. He stands breathless at the end of the hallway,
the darkspawn dead behind him. Looking around, looking for her. Zevran and
Wynne by his side but she – everything inside him tightens. Lungs squeezing,
heart pounding. Running back down the hallway, finding her leaning against a
Closing the space between them,
his hands hard on her arms as he examines her. In the hallway behind him, blood
settles and bodies slump. Alistair thinks he might hear Zevran chuckling, but
he pays it no mind. Without hesitation, he pulls her into a deep hug. She
returns it in full, holding him tightly, closing her eyes.
“Careful,” Wynne warns him by
the fire, “you’re changing. She’s changing. It will be dangerous for you both.”
“She’s my best friend,” Alistair
tells her, “that hasn’t changed.”
“It’s clear your feelings for
her have.” Alistair looks over the fire, sees her speaking with Morrigan.
Explaining something clearly, hands dancing in midair. The smile eases on his
face as he looks at her, her gushing enthusiasm, the way her eyes light up and
the way she looks against the fire. He tells himself it’s because they are the
last Grey Wardens of Ferelden. Alistair tells himself it’s because he couldn’t do this alone. He knows he can’t do it without her.
“Men are always willing to believe two things about a woman: one, that she is weak, and two, that she finds him attractive.“
Morrigan is the daughter of Flemeth, the legendary Witch of the Wilds who has reputedly given birth to scores of daughters and has lived for centuries, though Morrigan is unwilling or unable to confirm Flemeth’s true origins. Whatever Flemeth’s history, Morrigan was raised by her in isolation from civilization. Flemeth instilled a distrust of humankind in Morrigan, strictly forbidding her from venturing out into settlements. As such, Morrigan sought solace among nature and the animals of the Korcari Wilds, into whose forms she would often shapeshift.
When she reached a sufficient age, Morrigan would occasionally assist Flemeth in eliminating threats to them. If templars hunted the pair, Morrigan would often play the part of the innocent girl in fear for her life, while in reality leading the men to her mother, and thus to their doom.
I want to have dragon age inquisition illustrated as for a childrens book, because I want to write a story to it to read for my nephews and nieces, and maybe for you to read for your child!
Is there any artists out there willing to help?
