I’m discovering a ton of footage I lost the past couple of weeks, including some old art recordings and footage from Orcs Must Die: Unchained. So those are queued pronto, as they’ve been sitting longer.
When I met my online buddy Wayc, I had created him a Kashri OC for him to use with stories, etc. In 2019 we had cooked up this sort of spoof of a zany 50’s story akin to the classic The Blob, so I was starting to do some artwork for him in a dump for inspiration. I had done more than these two figures, but these were the ones I supposedly decided to get footage of.
While that was for him and is not for public sharing, I can share the footage of what I’ve done at least!
Here’s something I’ve been putting together for awhile, and got it done just in time for Halloween, too. Please enjoy my take on telling some stories, with more of a calming, atmosphere twist on it. Thanks to Wayc for helping me read some of them.
So Wayc and I have a joke about the Giga Mermaid from the Shantae games, being a tad bit adventurous. One agreed scene is her going “Yahoo” or “Yeehaw” to some degree. I absentmindedly had posted over to r/ICanDrawThat for someone to possibly draw this idea.
And I apparently got a taker! k_veikur graciously drew up Giga Mermaid going “Yeehaw!”. Both wayc and I were thrilled, and couldn’t have asked for a better portrayal.

This is a birthday gift to wayc, my online buddy who basically I’ve known for quite a bit. I drew him an assortment of characters, from my Kashri girls he likes, a snarky dolphin and Giga Mermaid from the Shantae games. All the dialogue is in-jokes based on what we talk about, so if nothing quite makes sense, don’t worry too much about it.
Suffice to say he was thrilled.
So there is a little tangent I went down this holiday; trying to establish a connection with someone I barely touched base with in 2004-2005. I did speak to them some back in the day, meeting on a place called the Chex Quest Talk forums. When I started going to Walters State I forgot about them, but recently I found them and decided to reach back out.
Suffice to say it went well, and I regret not doing it sooner. I could truly say I know what it feels like connecting with someone who you haven’t spoken to in over a decade. As a sort of gift for him, I drew him and Ki’voosh under some mistletoe, as he took a liking to her from my Ellowwood Keepers piece. And what do you know, he loved it.
