Rose City Comic Con Sketches

Hey everyone! This past weekend I was lucky enough to share a booth with the always amazing Doubleclicks (they begin an East Coast/Midwest tour this week so make sure you go see them if they are coming to your city) where I sketched Doubleclicks themed art for folks. It was fun and amazing and I hope one day I get to do something like this again. It was thrown together at the last minute, so I apologize to anyone who didn't know I was going to be there.

 

Here are the sketches from the weekend. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and who requested a sketch!

Unigiragon

Unigiragon

The old man peeled open an ancient tomb that looked as if it would turn to dust at any moment.

"Behold the unigiragon, the mightiest of the fabled beasts of yore; tall as a mountain, fierce as a thousand tigers, with wings that could blacken the entire heavens. Their thirst for flesh could only be matched by their incredible cruelty. Entire nations have been consumed by their unrelenting hunger. Thousands have perished, impaled on their poisonous horn. Their cold stare has turned entire armies to ash."

The little girl casually inspected the illustration in the old book. She looked up at her great grandfather. "I'm pretty sure that's an exaggeration, Pepaw. It actually looks quite friendly." She sniffled and wiped her nose on her sleeve. "They let us feed carrots to the one in the zoo.

It's tongue tickled.

And it let us pet its horn.

Just because one chewed up your favorite slippers is no reason to make up things.

That's just mean."

Awesomeness: Nina Kimberly the Merciless

nina-cover-art300She's got a sword, a dragon as a friend, and she's pissed. If you like all your body parts the way they are, you better stay out of her way.

Nina Kimberly is having a bad day.

Why is she having a bad day? Well, for starters, her father, the ex-fearsome barbarian conqueror Marcus the Merciless (there was an incident with a gopher hole, don't ask) has decided to settle down in the cozy kingdom of Langia. Doesn't sound too bad, you say? What if the young idiotic king of Langia, Francis IX, somehow got the notion that Nina and him are the perfect royal match when all she really wants to do is chop his head off and stuff it where the sun don't shine? Except she can't. That would start a succession war, which, despite Nina's barbarian upbringing, would just be unacceptable.

So, what's Nina to do? No, not marry the icky king. What's wrong with you? Go on a quest of course! Unfortunately, the dorky Francis has decided that she cannot live without him so has deemed it necessary to tag along. To make matters worse, Francis has a spell slapped on him to alert the kingdom if something unpleasant were to happen to him.

Now Nina has to keep his idiotic butt safe as well. She's thrilled.

This witty tale by Christiana Ellis is now available on Amazon. It is also available as a freshly remastered podcast in addition to a free PDF version. Check out the Nina Kimberly the Merciless website to get updates and find out more about this extremely entertaining story. Go on, go get it already. I assure you, you won't be disappointed.
