This was the first WritingPrompts I had done in 2019 on Reddit. I definitely fell in line, hook and sinker for the plot; write a story about being polite to the dragon, rather than defeating it for the goal. I decided to use an idea I ad from something I was writing in 2009, with a sort of OC based on me and a girl called Jennifer (whom you might’ve seen art for here in the past), going together through various settings like time travelers. I used the Reddit prompt to formulate a sort of “intro” story to that idea, which I’ll be springboarding off with in the future.

This is a two-part post, with the second post being published next week at the same time.

This version is also slightly edited, as I didn’t like how rough the first part was written on-demand when posting. The dragon and the warrior seemed too cardboard-cutout, and the events seemed to pre-planned.

Done in April 21, 2019.

Note: My writing for Reddit writing prompts is different for brevity. While this is a good example of my writing, I often omit backstory and several details to create a concise post. Please look at my other works if you’re looking for my more regular style of writing.

Original Post

OP

I could see the clearing up ahead. My nose already scrunched at the smell of scorched flesh and smoke. I shook my head, focused on my task at hand.

I ran through my head what the old man had said back at the zen garden. Don’t go in starting a fight. Use wit. Appeal to him as your own friend. Give him a gift of interest.

This was a sort of practical joke I did for someone who wanted a drawing of their wife yesterday. They asked for them to be drawn in a pinup format, but I instead drew them as a Cadian Imperial Guardsman. Fortunately he thought it was cute, and the wife thought she looked like she could be the leader in a “badass” comic.

 

Honest I surprised myself, as I got my proportions down pretty good here. The eyes were a great shocker to me as well, though I went for black dots as the person had real dark eyes. I’m slowly getting up to par to do better figures once again.

This is a silly and long-promised doodle for the peeps over at Mobius PvE, with one of the head admin’s cat. There was a joke about the cat being the actual boss, and having his own personal Cobra Mk. 3 to fly around on and get things in the house.

 

While I did let it sit a bit longer than I linked, I’m glad with the final result. Apparently drawing a cat on a spaceship does turn some heads.

You can always say I can’t sit down in one place for a long time, in terms of months and years. Sure, I may have called East Tennessee home for so most of my life, but it’s especially bothers  me in the spring. And these past few years particularly, it’s not been that different.

It could be a ton of things that give me that feeling. Daylight Savings Time ending, the sudden warm temperatures; or the deja vu I get at waking up early and feeling I should be waking up in a hotel or rest area instead of my bedroom.

On deviantART I was running a short offer to draw people’s sculptures with my character Egghead Girl, for free. One dude by the name of BassoeG took me up on my offer and asked me to draw some of his sculpted works. I was glad to, and I gave him two pieces.

 

This is the 2nd of those two pieces, with his Gastropod Brazier Candle. This was more fun to draw as I had a larger object to draw in relation to Egghead Girl, and it had some different texturing that I got to add. I also went a bit more open with Egghead Girl’s attitude, letting her do a more showy pose alongside it (varied pose, hiked skirts, etc).

 

Overall this was a fun thing to work on, and I’d love to give more sculptures from other artists this treatments if they’re willing to give me a shot.

This is the first of the two, with Egghead girl posing with this ceramic work known as Castle Molar. It’s pretty much a ceramic glazed castle with the towers looking like teeth more or less. You can check it out in the hyperlinked name earlier.

 

I’ll post the 2nd one tomorrow.

I started doing comics again, and while I still have my AntiMLM series to kick back up, I’m trying to see if I can get some people interested and vested in the Janus Fairytale universe. And that’s to do some small crossover stories featuring certain peeps, typically involving themselves going about in the universe with a short story around them. In that way I hope that the stories get some awareness and hopefully a following!

 

Admittedly I haven’t written anything Heather related in ages, but that’ll change soon. Just have a lot of stuff I’m sorting through at the moment in real life.

 

But this is a test frame with a crossover from @gettingoutofmyhometown, with her character Emma! She helped pick outfit colors and I still have to come up with a backstory why she ended up there, and have half of her adventure plotted out. I’ll post more when I have some things ironed out.
