Getting a fucking invitation to submit work documents for a Japanese visa like-

talk about having one of those ‘HOLY SHIT’ moments 

Getting off the phone with the interviewer like: 

…. I gotta get this shit done NOW.

Cry of the South Portraits: Themidria by Jizoku-San


Unable to bear hiding any longer, Vero rose to his feet behind Stolla and Raif, pointing his pistol from behind their backs into the snow. He stumbled back onto the road, shaking with nerves as he ring glowed bright on his finger. His chain had broken in the fray, and it dangled uselessly from the metal bend fast on his flesh like string. He was shocked to see that both Stolla and Raif had lowered their guns, looking on into the smoke with stony faces full of dark hate. 

 Could it be they knew who was coming? 

 Could it be they’d been expecting this? 

 A form was appearing through the smoke, the silhouette of a woman with an hourglass figure. The red witch? 

“My highest welcomes, Cotation prince.” Called out a loud and menacing voice, exactly like the one that had filled Vero’s dreams! “You honor my land with your presence.” 

 From the smoke, she finally appeared. Tall and lithe, robbed in black armor laced in red, she was the most frightening woman Vero had ever seen. Her skin was as blue as Stolla’s, scarred and laced with blackened veins that dotted her high cheeks like tattoos. Her hair, jet black, hung in high dreadlocks straight down her back. She wore an elaborate headdress full of bones and metal, and heavy black gauntlets upon her arms marred in dark red sigils. Even her boots were iron, and a dark red cape flapped violently in the wind from her back. 

 She was a monster, beyond anything Vero had ever known in his life. He immediately identified her as an enormous threat, one beyond his level of skill, and knew the woman could kill him in a heartbeat if she so desired. There was a sheer aura of terrible energy about her, making the snow melt with a hiss at her feet and blackening the air as it touched her body. 
 
 She defiled the earth on which she walked, her sorcery like that of the devil. Surely, this must be the red witch. But how did she knew he was Cotation? And why was she calling him prince? 
Cry of the South: The Ost en Lor, Operation 20: The Red Witch

Well, that was Themidria’s first appearance. Frankly she aint changed much since. Still a bad ass bitch. Still whippin’ all sorts of ass. To be honest I’ve only ever had like… what… five people read my book? Maybe four? and none of them have ever really liked Themidria. 
Not in the ‘bad writing’ way
but in the ‘fucking bitch die’ way. 
which I guess means I’m doing my job right.

Personal

Like I’m not going to lie. 

I don’t understand why you just couldn’t say ‘I am involved with someone’. Like seriously it is not that hard to say that. 

I say ‘would you like to go to dinner’ 

you say ‘I don’t usually date my students, let’s just keep it cool for now’

I later say ‘I don’t even know if you have a girlfriend or are gay’ 

THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN A GREAT TIME TO SAY I HAV EA GIRLFRIEND 

BUT NO

NO YOU HAD TO HIDE THAT TINY BIT OF INFORMATION

THANKS

MUCHAS GRACIAS

like i had to get all dressed up and shit to try and impress you

and now I feel

Captain Portraits: Stolla Dialiam by Jizoku-San
The fifth and final portrait in my Captain Portrait’s series: Stolla Dialiam, the second Captain of Valencia and the second in line to its throne. She is difficult to understand verbally, mentally, and emotionally; as a result, the general public is often afraid of Dialiam and the papers promote her much like one would Slenderman or the Jaberwocky. She’s more of an entertainment figure than a political figure. For that reason, I decided to paint her this time as people who don’t know her might see her. Unnerving and emerging fro darkness.

Captain Portraits: Atticus Shane by Jizoku-San

The fourth in my Captain Portraits series. Atticus Shane is the third of the Valencian Captain’s, and third in line to its throne. He is foul tempered, sharp mouthed, and at times can be unbelievably cruel. Shane is a recovering alcoholic, a habit spurned by the divorce of his wife and the loss of his son Adymn. 
Shane has this really powerful, evil gaze at times. I tried to incorporate that here.

Captain Portraits: Colain Shiloh by Jizoku-San
The third in my Captain Portraits series, Colain Shiloh of Cotati. Honestly, I rarely draw Colain Shiloh either. Shiloh is not nearly as powerful physically as Jovias or Strathmore but is cunning in combat and can easily outmaneuver his opponent through wits. He is the head to Cotati’s massive navy, the strongest in the Alaric ocean.

Jesus fuck

like I went online looking to see if I got paid bi-weekly or monthly at my new position in Books a Million and the reviews of past associates and GM’s were HORRIFIC. They reiterated time and time again how you have to push these cards and magazines onto customers and if you don’t sell enough of them you get fired. Like FUCK I’m not even going to make it for two months I bet! How the fuck am I supposed to keep a job if I can’t get people to buy shit that they don’t want to buy? Why do I get punished because people aren’t interested in buying fucking cards? Starbucks was a nightmare, but at least Starbucks didn’t fucking fire you when they didn’t sell starbucks cards! 

Fuck!

Captain Portraits: Rayne Strathmore by Jizoku-San
Another captain that I rarely draw is Rayne Strathmore, Captain of Meridie and head to its small but powerful navy. Strathmore is a brilliant fighter, skilled in hand to hand combat over weaponry, but has a vicious streak that often needs to be kept in check during battle.

Kori by Jizoku-San

I haven’t done Stolla from my series the Cry of the South in a long long time, and that just didn’t feel right. So here is some Stolla. Being all… Stolla-ish.
