Realized most of my Tales prints were in the AseliaCon super post. So going to give each their own post.

And as Berseria just came out..let’s start with Velvet.

I wanted something in the same line of how I handled the Berserk piece..but more energetic. Like raw angry intense lines. Hopefully that comes through a bit.Haha.

READ IN 2016: A Torch Against the Night by Sabaa Tahir

Once upon a time, a girl and a boy tried to escape a city of flame and terror. In this city, they found salvation half-touched by shadow. And there waited a silver-skinned she-demon with a heart as black as her home. They fought the demon beneath a sleepless spire of suffering. They brought the demon low and escaped victorious. A pretty tale, is it not? The story is in the city, little singer. Find the story, and you’ll find Elias Veturius.

As soon as she sees Cullen locked in the dungeon, she knows he is hers. And as a Desire Demon, she knows she can get him. Yet, despite all her wiles, he resists her, hates her. He would rather die than make a pact. She should move on, but she can’t. Why can’t she? And why does seeing him sicken make her chest ache? Demons don’t feel emotions… right?

A world of Thedas retelling of Beauty and the Beast!

She didn’t normally come to this part of the Fade. She enjoyed hunting around Tevinter; the Magisters were always so eager for power, and usually quite imaginative in the ways they wanted to achieve it. Magisters were so full of themselves, they always thought they could gain the upper hand. She enjoyed reaping the benefits of their ambitions and then the crushing downslide that followed when she got what she wanted. So delicious.

The Breach had changed everything. And now, rumors raced through the denizens of the Fade: there was a place where you could physically push through the Veil, if you had enough power. And as a very old Desire Demon, power she had.

She could see it, the shifting fog of the Fade flashing clear enough to see the world beyond. A hard smile came to her lips, her eyes narrowed in concentration. Simple enough; she could break through. Behind her a few lesser demons shifted, stumbling back when she tossed a pointed glance at them. These beasts knew better than to tangle with her; they were hoping that her crossing would weaken the Veil enough to be able to push through themselves. Good luck with that.

Closing her eyes, she concentrated of the warp and weft of the magic that kept the Veil together, gathering power into her hands. Fingers clawed, she slowly pulled them out and away. She felt the Veil fighting back, trying to re-stitch the hole she expanded. A smirk pulled up a corner of her mouth, flexing her magical abilities till she felt air wash over her skin. The Veil was weak here, but far from the point of collapse. She was just that strong.
