Art: Woman Half in Shade

What is her emotion? Worry? Happy? Some in-between state?

I don’t attempt much person-drawing or person-art because all the proportions and details and parts and it’s a lot to do and hard to get looking nice. It’s very easy to make it look wrong, and so it’s always a little embarrassing to show.

This one’s okay. I like the hair. The arms could be better, but at least they don’t look too much like weird tubes sticking out of a body.

One of the big challenges in art is that you could always spend longer and make it better, but at some point you have to say something is good enough to be done with and next time you’ll try to improve some.

Art: three pieces of fruit and half a nut.

What a nice snack!

Kind of a scifi picture. What are they talking to each other about? Are they part of a Voltron or Captain Planet type arrangement, where they combine their powers to fight evil? Why is there a half-nut (of what kind?!) with three pieces of fruit? Why are the nut and orange wedge not whole while the strawberry and grape are?

In any case, this image is surely part of a balanced diet.

Art: Map of Fliqra

Given nothing is centered and only a few are whole, what is this a map of?

It’s not a real place. It has no story to go with it, though you can look at it and make your own. You can imagine what shaped the various borders and what the climate is like in these places.

For example, Aikimoosh looks like a rather aggressive place, though it could be the other way: that Aikimoosh was peaceful and had to fight off advances from the likes of Munrea (where the Aiks allied with Fissians), and they ceded access to the river and Lake Aik to Hiolcrisably. They’re probably okay with Guxintrop, though. They miss their border with Velmuck, which Dewlm took to gain access to Lagath Bay so they can have an overland route for traders from Maflid’s Land.

And maybe Aikimoosh is in talks with Pytogimpse to build a tunnel under the mouth of the Sea of Rourin to allow for better trade relations with the northerners.
