    Day 17, Dory Whynot prompt "Reanimate." I'd gone dark for a few days, so today I went ... silly. https://twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1184953139901947904 https://www.instagram.com/p/B3u76kCntvd/

    14048, Fatima, Nefsokar Cleric

    This is Reaper's 14048, Fatima, Nefsokar Cleric. Or rather it will be when you click on the links because she's super NSFW, front and back. CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PAINTED FIGURE FATIMA, NEFSOKAR CLERIC. There isn't a WIP thread because I couldn't figure out how to make one that would abide by the board rules. But questions or comments are appreciated. The images are hosted on Instagram so you can post comments there too if you like.

    Day 14, "Cursed Crown." This one requires some explanation. So I have spent a lot of time at the Oriental Institute drawing things. I've also been studying ancient Mesopotamian culture as background for a project. Lamashtu is a Sumerian / Akkadian demon, or rather evil god, who preys on infants, pregnant women, and children. She has the head of a lioness, the ears and teeth of a donkey (which look REALLY WRONG in a lioness' head) and a hairy body, her arms wound with snakes. There are also these amazing Assyrian women's crowns that have been dug up, delicate confections of beaten gold leaves and flowers / rosettes and rings, often accompanied by scads and scads of beaded necklaces. This confrontation is related to something in the project I'm working on, a queen who messes up an important ritual because she's too attached to her finery, and the curse it brings on her city and herself. https://twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1183900351184936961 https://www.instagram.com/p/B3nfO0CHyFo/

    The Asian ash trees co-evolved with the Emerald Ash Borer and are semi-immune. In their native China the insects only infest aging, dying ash trees.

    China. Untreated, infested wood products were imported without enough inspection or oversight and that's all she wrote. The ash trees are no more.

    The ash trees here have been decimated by the Emerald Ash Borer. So many missing-tooth gaps everywhere. I didn’t have the heart.

    Day 13, Dory Whynot's prompt is "Apothecary." Another tribute to the World of Darkness campaign set in East Germany in the 1980s (and some Old School type brush and ink illustration): https://twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1183514285923852295 https://www.instagram.com/p/B3k0CQknnbM/
  10. You look wonderful! Thanks for sharing. Aaaaah! Welcome back!

    Day 12, Dory Whynot's prompt is "Fallen Angel." A quote from Shakespeare's "Macbeth": "Angels are bright still, though the brightest fell:Though all things foul would wear the brows of grace,Yet grace must still look so." https://twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1183186504174198785 https://www.instagram.com/p/B3ifRVGnVpP/
  12. It’s the weekend of the annual Columbus Day Weekend university neighborhood blowout used book sale. Wandered by this morning, past the stone-faced pros with their book scanners and their gargantuan canvas carry-alls, and found this: “The Verlinden Way,” Vol. 6, which seems to be a nice, show-offy book of someone’s miniature military models and dioramas, which I got for either a dollar (if they counted it as a trade paperback) or ten cents (if they treated it as a magazine) (I got a tote bag’s worth of things and I’m not quite sure which way this one was categorized).

    Day 11, Dory Whynot's prompt is "Window." This is inspired by a zen window I saw looking out onto a garden. It's Prismacolors on black paper. Also on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1182784233288454146 And Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/B3fm02WngzO/

    You can if you like, but it looks good to me.

    Day 10, "Séance." A fond homage to the slightly silly tendency for Harlequin to show up in otherwise rather staid murder mysteries of the 1920s. See it also on Twitter and Instagram with more explanatory text: https://twitter.com/AchronalA/status/1182451033672421376 https://www.instagram.com/p/B3dQbcYnhjT/
