Geisha Girl – Charcoal Figure Drawing – New Art & A Twitch Stream

So I’ve Been Back To The Drawing Board…

I felt that it was high time to change a few things with my blog/website and general artwork output. When I began this journey I began with the intentions of working more so in the area of fine art, of telling stories of my own creation and of re-imagining folklore, history and mythology.

Somewhere along the way I got wrapped in fan art, and as a lover of the fantasy genre this is easily done. I’m now going to balance the fan art work out a lot more with some more finer art; figure drawings, still life paintings and landscapes. All of which will still hold a narrative nonetheless.

Kakarot – Son Goku – Charcoal on Toned Paper – 10″ x 8″

Here is the latest addition to my portfolio, Kakarot. My favourite character from the Dragon Ball series and a strong childhood memory. The furthest back that I can remember drawing regularly, it was Dragon Ball characters and most especially, Goku.

The main difference being, I used to watch episodes and then draw scenes from memory, I wish I still had those early drawings, they would be interesting to look back on.

Anyway, this is the new artwork in the bag!

The Darkness Spreads

It felt like a lifetime since Corvus had left Crowshaven in pursuit of finding the Starshade herb that would cure his sister’s sickness. He had found the mystical and somewhat mythical White Raven; learned of an ancient prophecy and now seen it reach its fulfilment.

The Crown of Crows had been obtained and a Ravenking had been crowned after centuries of divided tribal territories.

The battle for Treehold Keep was over and the war won by the Corvids.

Now all that was left was a waiting game. The Corvids knew that the Darkness was going to spread and they were assured by Alwyn, the White Raven, that the castle was a place of safety and sanctuary.

The Darkness slowly swallowed up the landscape; the Corvids kept themselves hidden away and prepared for a long, dark winter…

The Aftermath of Battle

Whilst the clouds of the Darkness can be seen covering the distant landscapes and slowly causing the deaths of all the creatures it touches, the Battle of Treehold comes to its bitter end.

Death reeks both within the castle walls and without.

The Corvids managed to gain this victory but failing to act fast could cause it to be short lived and bittersweet.

The Darkness was coming…

The Battle of Treehold

There never was going to be time for negotiations or diplomacy between the Corvids and the Rattus Rodentius; the hatred went further back than memory itself and there were no stories of a time when the two kinds got along, or even tolerated each other.

Their history, in its entirety was one of war and deceit, battle and bloodshed; nothing more, nothing less…

The Ravenking Harfengel was not going to allow his entire species to become extinct due to losing this battle and not being able to hold up in the Treehold Keep.

It was all or nothing. Kill or be killed. Win this battle or lose to extinction. Present moment versus eternity…

The Last Corvid Colonies Arrive at Crowshaven

A Ravenking had been crowned. The Corvid world was changing, and changing fast; which was a necessity with the Darkness coming. The word had spread across the many lands that Corvids inhabited in the days following the crowning of Harfengel, there was a constant stream of incoming new Corvids.

Only so much time was left though, it was very nearly time to leaveCrowshaven and head to Treehold Keep and the newcomers were still arriving at a steady pace.

Harfengel announced that within the week they would be leaving Crowshaven and heading off to the new land, ready for war in order to claim the only safe haven…

The Corvids Arrive at Crowshaven, a Surprise Welcoming

The group manage to get through the rest of their journey through the Grimwood without any further problems or delays, and after what feels like an age of being away, Corvus returns to Crowshaven; without Finbar but with four others.

Upon arriving, Corvus was most surprised by the welcoming committee that awaited him at the foot of the Great Tree.

Alwyn, the White Raven alongside Harfengel, the Chief of Crowshaven who is soon to be Ravenking; and the sick relative of Corvus, fully recovered and eagerly awaiting her reunion with her brother.

Although he hadn’t left his Ancient Watchtower in over a century, Alwyn knew that he had to in order to pay his part in the fulfilment of the prophecy; he had sent Corvus on a quest that stopped him being able to save his sibling so Alwyn assumed responsibility to get the Starshade herb to her.

There was now a lot of catching up to do, but more importantly, a lot of planning to do. Every Corvid Colony needed to be moved as one Colony to the Treehold Keep to escape the coming Darkness.

A Funeral for Finbar, More Mourning for the Corvids

The Corvids manage to get to the edge of the Grimwood without any further problems, carrying with them the body of Finbar, broken and lifeless. Each of the Corvids carries the body for a way, sharing the load between them in order to reach their destination as quickly as they can.

At the edge of the Grimwood Corvus announces “We shall hold the funeral for our dear friend here, in this spot, before the Grimwood. To carry him through and try to return him to Crowshaven by this route would be folly. The Great Golden Eagle has a keen eye and will find him wherever he lies.”

The Conspiracy of Corvids calmly collected their thoughts for a few moments, and then they sang a funerary song together as is the custom amongst their kind.

They said their farewells and last to say his was Corvus; who had known Finbar since they were Hatchlings, they then entered the Grimwood.

They entered amongst the shadowy darkness of the trees and the dense thickets, hoping against all hope that they didn’t have to face any more loss before this journey ended…

From the Mouth of a Beast, a Narrow Escape

There was no way that Corvus could leave his dead friend behind for his corpse to be eaten by the Man-King’s dogs, or worse.

He dived back in through the window and into the chamber, avoiding the swings of the axe and trying his best not to become the guard dogs next meal.

Corvus grabs the body of his dearest friend and narrowly escapes the teeth of the guard dog and makes it out of the window and into the air to rejoin the other Corvids.

Now they have the Crown, the next phase is to return to Crowshaven and get the Ravenking crowned; a necessity in order to unite all of the Corvid Colonies and move to the castle at Treehold Keep before the Darkness comes.

Before that can be thought about in depth though, there is a more pressing matter at hand.

Corvus needs to hold a funeral for his oldest friend, Finbar…
