Aethal Blumenkronz

Told you I was working on a big piece. The player character for the Vampire the Masquerade Dark Ages game, as promised in the previous post. Clan Ventrue, early Transylvanian Saxon (not that she calls herself that), and absolutely relentless seducer of comely maids. How to refer to Aethal in-game and in my out-of-game materials […]

[sketch] V20: Dark Ages/Transylvania Chronicles NPCs

“Well, I should do some art for the Vampire the Masquerade game me and Mo from ‘Duets With Dice‘ are doing together. I wonder who I should do? The main character? Their sire? What should I draw to best establish the chronicle, its tone, its mood?” “Oh, I know! Supporting NPCs!” The unassuming Lady Bogdana […]

Get Hype for “Orchid Mantis: Wolf-Charmer”!

What will Gav do when conflict peels layers back and lets him see bits of Cho that aren’t as appealing as the carefree acceptance and the big butt? It’s not like she actively lied… not like he doesn’t have his own secrets… But at least his secrets aren’t banging on his door all hours of […]

‘Dark Skies’ Announcement

  After much consideration, I have decided to take Dark Skies Over Brightwater down from the Amazon Kindle Store. Past this point, it is no longer purchasable.

Art, New Twitter, More!

Presenting ‘Adelaide,’ after Alphonse Mucha’s ‘Autumn,’ done in 1896. Since Addie is an Autumn Sidhe, I thought that was the most appropriate piece to base her off of. There are other symbols throughout, but hey, if you wanna know more, you should probably just go listen to ‘Yours to Keep,’ the game she’s in, at […]

Duets with Dice and ‘Yours To Keep’

You know those roommates I’m always talking about and going on rad adventures with? They’re doing a Changeling the Dreaming duet game and posting it to YouTube! What’s that got to do with me? I’m the artist on the team! I’m doing the images for each session, the banner on their YouTube channel, and any other […]

What Do These Losers Even Look Like

Maybe it’s a hold-over from when my primary occupation was ‘artist,’ but I obsessively search for face models for all of my characters. It used to be so the features I drew were more varied and grounded in reality. Now… I suppose it helps with visualization, though more often than not I think in sentences […]

Mountain Road

  My mother and I had a vacation together after I published ‘Drosera.’ We roadtripped from Central Texas to Santa Fe, then up through the Colorado Rockies back to Texas. It was nice, and I have a lot of good stories from it. We were up high in the Rockies. The roads there are pretty […]
