The name's Shaenna... Markus Shaenna...
Damn it, Shae! You are such an attention whore. I have math homework to do and commissions to work on so stop making me draw you. Shae does (briefly) wear a suit in issue 3 of Intrepid. Oddly enough, I think it suits him well (no pun intended), because he can be very charming and suave… when he wants to be. (Markus Shaenna is Shae’s real name, BTW. He hates his name, which is...
I’ve been busy working on commissions, so I haven’t had much time for personal art. But in the meantime, here’s the crest of the Imperial Suns. This is seen on the right bicep of their combat uniforms. I must color this and get it on a patch… EDIT: Mmmm… now that I think about it… it would be AWESOME just to have a custom made jacket look like the uniform...
Three Spacescape Speedpaints
I did these on my way to Peoria the other day and just finished them up today. These are scenes of locations in the Azure Wheel universe that I’ve done for my big project. Each took me a little over an hour to do.
Trent - First Pass Sketches
His appearance needs some tweaking… more specifically, I think his face looks a little too much like Ared’s. He’s proven to be almost as stubborn as Shae in terms of being picky about how he wants to look. Funny thing, is… I’ve always had a specific look for him in mind… dark skin and hair, half-goatee, brown eyes, muscular, and a little bit of a...
Intrepid - Updates & Stuff 11/27/2011
Happy belated Thanksgiving all! Sorry for lack of updates lately, but I’ve been visiting my brother in Peoria these last few days. I’m back and ready to get back to work. Okay… things I have planned: I’m currently writing the overview for issue 3 as well as making a few changes to the script of 2 based on suggestions from my beta readers. I have some first pass...
Cute chibi Shae by J. Bryant. :)
Othae & The Yanna System
Those of you who know the names of some of my space critters should now know which species I’m planning on developing next just by the name of the planet.
Your mom thought I was big enough. — Love, Pluto
Kalgean Gryphons - Line Art
WIP of the three Kalgean gryphon species.
I’m 100% American… and sadly, I think this map is accurate. XD Shamelessly swiped from one of my friends on Facebook.
Nothin’ special. Just a WIP shot of me working on a map. I don’t think I’ll ever do a cartography stream, since the process would probably be very boring to look at, but hopefully this gives at least a little insight into my mapmaking process.
Taking a moment to pimp the new avatar that Zyden did for me. It’s actually pretty damn close to the otherworldly look of how I imagine Ultimarian eyes to be. Aredon sees joo!
Ibirian - Species Sheet
More info then you ever wanted to know about this species under the cut. Highly religious vulpine humanoids from the arboreal planet, Ibirius. Ibirians are remarkably tiny. Other races have tried to pick on Iberians because of their small size. Pirates and bandits see them as easy pickings. Because of this, Iberians have become well adapted to take care of themselves. The way an Ibirian will...
Kung Fu Panda
animalsbeingdicks: Legend tells of a legendary warrior whose kung fu skills were the stuff of legend. He was so deadly, in fact, that his enemies would go blind from over-exposure to pure awesomeness! HAHAHAHA!
Moar space art type stuff to help me relax. Phoenix is one of the gas Giants in the Cyriss star system (The same system that Thera is in). I imagine it being a little larger (about 5-10%) then Jupiter. It’s gravitation pull would definitely be a bitch, so it would definitely have some impact on the other planets in the system. I also played around with the idea of jellyfish type...
I really like Himnare. I hope you don’t mind if I borrow him here and there for shenanigans or random interactions. And thank you for this lovely piece! :D <3 LOL - Borrow away. :p
Imperial Bros 4 Lyfe
This picture stemmed from a somewhat silly comment that I said while having a conversation with Beast about our two alien emperors interacting. I could not pass up an opportunity to draw it. Jarovin is her lockjaw Emperor who needs no introduction. Himnare is my emperor of the Ultimarians who lead the species out of a time of war. What could these two be talking about? The mysteries of the...
Intrepid - Updates & Stuff 11/14/2011
* When it comes to Trent, I’ve procrastinated long enough. He’s supposed to be one of the main characters but I haven’t done any work on him at all. Bad Traci, bad! Expect some progress sketches on him soon. * I’m doing the official species reference sheet for the Iberians. I hope to have that done and the species opened up by the end of the weekend. * I am halfway...
The last thing that I wanted to do before making the “official” species list for the Iberian species and open them up for other people to create characters. I wanted to give Ibirians some animals to interact with. Obviously, these aren’t all the species on Ibirius. I may create a few more and add to this species sheet at a later date but for now, here’s what...
I look forward to this battle! I started doodling a Himnare and Jarovin interaction a while ago for shits and giggles, so you can expect fanart of him at some point. XD Believe it or not…. I’ve been thinking about doing the exact same thing. >_< Bros and Emperors!
Sparring - WIP
A few weeks back, I asked if there was any specific requests of things they wanted to see my characters do. Somebody mentioned sparring. I had an image in my head of Liah and Himnare, the two reth’kaa in the story to face off against each other. No contest… Himnare would wipe the floor with Liah since he’s the bloody Emperor but the resulting battle would be epic. So I have...
Thera Planetary & Cyriss System Maps
Since I spent so long concentrating on my Theran species, I figured that people might want to know a little bit about them as a species where they come from. Well, I’m working on a larger project that I will (hopefully) launch along side the Intrepid comic that will explain a lot about what Therans are and how they evolved, so I don’t want to give away too much about the species. But...
The Galactic Alliance and a Species' rise to...
This is just a little tidbit of Azure wheel lore that I realized I was discussing with a friend and realized that I’d never publicly shared… The Denaq species are a race of scholars and library keepers. One of the jobs that they are trusted with are keeping close tabs on the evolution of different sentient races that are not yet capable of space flight. When the species is evolved...
Cylor - Character Sheet
Character sheet for Cylor, the mafia leader and antagonist of Intrepid. Reading his bio should at least give a little hint at how dark Intrepid’s story gets at times.
Raevynn - Character Sheet
Don’t get snarky with me, Raevynn or next time I’ll draw you I’ll give you a goatee! She’s one of my older characters and was designed to be the only girl who could stand toe to toe with Dom on in every aspect. I’ve always liked her character a lot. She’s always fun to draw and work with. Unfortunately, she sort of takes a backseat and becomes more of a ...
So once again I found myself stressed out thanks to my French class. If they want me to learn the language, they should at least TELL me what the words I’m learning mean! Ah ben sacrament! Calisse de tabarnak! So what did I do? Sat down with a blend of sprite and apple pucker (Awesome, BTW… it tastes like green apple soda) and doodled. I don’t hold my liquor well at all,...
Shae and Liah - Happy Cuddle Time...
Shae and Liah are extremely close. They aren’t a couple (as much as Shae would like them to be), but they do get pretty intimate. They’re more like soulmates or kindred spirits then lovers. Shae has seen some horrific things on the battlefield. One of the few things that Shae can take comfort in is Liah’s arms. She always seems to know exactly what to say or do to make...
Intrepid - Promotional Picture
Promotional picture to go along with the beautiful soundtrack that FoxAmoore did for my upcoming comic. Listen to it here: http://ulario.tumblr.com/post/12197734540/the-real-intrepid-theme-lol-foxamoore-contacted And go give FoxAmoore much love since his music is awesome! Dooooo eeeeet! The comic itself isn’t coming out until next Summer, but I’ve been doing a lot of progress to...
Random thoughts About Beastmasters...
So this morning my cat woke me up early and I was laying in bed for several hours trying to fall back asleep and my mind started wandering to random things… … in particular, the beastmasters of the Blackmane order. I began to wonder on it Beastmasters could control insects. In the Azure Wheel, insects do have lifestream connections and souls… but it’s different then most...
I got tired of looking at myself so I needed an avatar change. I’ve been wanting to commission or trade for an avatar of one of the boys, but my searching for someone to do one has been rather unfruitful. I may just end up buying one of Zyden’s eye cons when they open up. If you want to do an avatar trade or do a commission for me, let me know. I’ll take a look and perhaps...
What about Nazdeha? You mean Nareheda? She comes about 40-50 years down the line from this point in time. The Void changes ownership multiple times during that period. Cylor is the original founder/owner who eventually is murdered by his right hand, Tamnosurnril (This isn’t a spoiler, BTW… it happens between stories). Tam takes over Cylor’s role. Eventually, Nareheda...
The REAL Intrepid theme! LOL… Foxamoore...
Cylor - Character Study
The reason why I’ve been developing the Ibirian species. Cylor is one of the main antagonists in my comic’s storyline, so I wanted to get him down on paper. He is the leader of The Void, a crime organization based on the Sicilian Mafia of the 1930s and owner of the Ankh, a casino and gentleman’s club that attracts the criminal element. As an important character to the...
