I created/helped create this thing called Character Solidifying Sunday and as such sometimes I talk a little too much about my characters.
[Regrettably from cause of snow and frost, we find that of you are sadly lost.]
GENERAL PLOT AND SETTING for THE SUNKEN ISLE:
(high fantasy: involves cursed armor, gods, demons, and though not mentioned in here, dragons)
Takes place in the same storyverse as the Dezba Cases, but way in the past. There was an island nearish to Scotland that sometimes warred with Northmen. One such man from the North named Junus ends up living there, marrying a girl on this island, and eventually ends up in a tangle of events leading to him getting a gauntlet of power often translated into being called Testament (the same one Ashley wears in the Dezba Cases). Because Testament has the ability to fight gods, Junus often ended up in fights with some pretty dangerous supernatural creatures and gods on this island before ‘retiring’; returning home across the sea and becoming a hermit.
Pictures and quick descriptions of characters below the cut:
quick sketch before bed
thinking about the sunken isle a lot lately, and junus spent at least a couple years there. the idea of him escaping without wearing a kilt at least once is pretty unlikely. at least they let him keep his stupid cloak.
Today I finished Junus’ cloak- with the exception of finding some gold clasps that I like for it.
For those of you who don’t know, the one on the right is Junus.
Junus was basically my first character who I put time and effort into and means a lot to me. I’ve intended to make his red cloak for some time now (a few years really) as I guess, a reminder of the creations that are important to me and the progress I have made and want to continue making.
My mother was amazing in both finding me the faux fur for the cloak and helping me sew it since I’m kind of a poor seamster.
Anyway, pictures below the cut.
