Maps for The Nothing Light

I actually finished these back in early September, but I’d gotten out of the habit of posting things regularly this summer.

The 3rd book in The Saga of the Rose series is The Nothing Light, and I drew more maps for that volume. The majority of the story takes place in northern Surak, in and around the city of Lessas, so all the new maps pertain to that region.

I already did the most obvious thing for Muddy last year, with a kid (dragon) playing in a mud puddle. Honestly I’m not sure why exactly I wound up thinking of Clayface from Batman, but I did. And, of course, since I first encountered the character in the original Animated Series, I wanted to draw him in that style, so here we are.

Inktober 2018 Day 5

So…today was kinda rough. It’s not a completely certain done deal, but Brett Kavanaugh is now nearly certain to be confirmed to the US Supreme Court. I find this extremely upsetting, and I was hoping against hope that a couple more people in the Senate would be decent human beings than actually intend to be.

As a result, I didn’t get to today’s drawing until pretty late in the day - didn’t even look at what the word prompt was until about 5pm. Of course, given what’s been on my mind today, when I saw it was “chicken” I didn’t even have to pause to think - it was immediately obvious what I’d be drawing.
