Re: previous conversation, maybe Bailey’s past can be hinted at with photos placed around her apartment that we glimpse as she readies for work. And as she gets older and takes charge, you see the backgrounds of the photos getting neater and cleaner.
late night sketch of Vivian, a character from Desert Shade
and I mean she’s a character in every sense of the world. One of the most badass women I’ve written, I think. She was supposed to be just a dropped name in a conversation on politics, but she forced her way into the story proper because that’s how she is.
And now I am beholden to no one.
now to rebloogle to Noses-With-Wings, where you should follow me for non-art Flight Rising things.
Suz is legit one of the easiest and funnest characters of mine to draw. She is a fuzzy black 7ft tall anti-gravity weasel.
Some of the human cast of Desert Shade.
Luthe and Cain are the two biggies, but the others play crucial roles as well. Vitain is Cain and Luthe’s mom, Gard is the captain of their caravan, Bareeth is an influential member of the caravan, and Vivian leads a caravan that has a route along the south coastline (and may or may not be involved with pirates and may or may not have several lovers down there).
Missing is Danatha, who is an all around (intentionally) boring character so I left her out. Gard, Bareeth, Vivian, and Danatha are all potential candidates to be the big boss of all the nomads.
Probably the last time I’ll illustrate my research species any time soon. I’ve meant to illustrate this for a while; there aren’t many images that show the difference between the genders of woodlice. It’s quite simple once you know what you’re looking for though!
