This is related to that Elementae XIV thing I shared a little while ago. Going a little further into the actual STORY surrounding these Elements… here the symbols contain the portraits of 13 youths who consider themselves to be little more than a cluster of orphaned nobodies, all alone in the world except for each other. Little do they know that they are fated to find and bond with 13 ancient, shape-shifting Demi-Spirits who appear as various animals and correspond with the Elements… the Gaeafera.
I may soon share these portraits outside the symbols so you can see them better. 🙂
PS: Oh look that gal in the Glacius (blue diamond) shape looks awfully familiar!
I made a continuing page of that little Harahpin comic I made a while back. Truth is, I had it underway since then; it just fell into my giant backlog of projects to finish and got held off for a while. xD But I’ve finished it now, yaaay! 😀 As of now I’m not sure if I’ll do more Harahpin comics, but you never know!

Harahpin mini-comic 2/2
The other day I started making these just as a way to have some nice, easy, peaceful drawing time with myself (something I have been sorely lacking AND needing lately, ack. xD ) These were surprisingly relaxing to work on, and in the end I really liked them, so I put them in a nice spiffy display so you lot could see them too. 😀
Now, ABOUT them. These represent THE elemental set of my childhood/growing-up. I mean, I’ve done other elemental sets, but THESE and I go waaaaaaay back! (I seem to be really going with that thing that the little birdie told me about nourishing my nostalgia… first Link and Spyro fan-art, and now a more intrapersonal nostalgia, hah. 😀 ) Honestly, the word ‘element’ is a bit loose for them… for they aren’t based purely on substances, but more the various behaviors of substances (hence why many may seem redundant). But it’s much easier to just call them Elements rather than ‘Behaviors of Substances Found in Nature’. 😀 (Also they weren’t always named in Latin, but they have been at least since I was in middle school… because why not, and it sounds cool. xD )
This elemental set has an entire story world that revolves around it… various cultures are based on one or more of these elements, regions are shaped by them, creatures are influenced by them, spirits and demi-spirits are associated with them, there are magical artifacts that react to them, etc, etc.
There may be more art to do with this story world in the near future; I’ve got it a bit on the brain right now. 😛
I haven’t been drawing much since summer school started, but the other day I made myself take up my crayons and out came this. :3 This is the version of Cuffi from The Darkening Day (that is, ‘Videogame-Cuffi’), as opposed to the Torian Tri-Point Cuffi (aka ‘Book-Cuffi’). 😛 They’re both the same entity at the root, and in fact Videogame-Cuffi was the first form of the character, whom I dreamed up somewhere between 1998 and 2000, I think. I’m including one of the earliest drawings of him, right below the newest one. 😀 (Geez, lookit that comparison. xD It’s weird seeing the 1999(ish)-version right next to the 2018-version. :’D )
I made a li’l comic from a scene in ‘Harahpin’, near the end of Chapter 7. 🙂
Instead of re-writing the whole history of this tiny comic here, I‘ll just link you to where I put it on deviantArt, for now. Under the image is written all you need to know, haha. 😀
“Will a wing’d lady sing with a ‘Tyrant King’?”
Singing with Rex
Inspired by this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=VLJrPx…
I just LOVE those sounds for Tyrannosaurus Rex. 😀 😀 😀 I don’t think I’ll ever be able to look at a roaring Rex ever again! (..Okay, Land Before Time can be an exception xD ) But GOSH this deep rumbling voice suits him so much better than a roar! <3 I was playing that video on a loop for somewhere around twenty minutes with my eyes meditatively closed… and by gosh, soon enough I was humming harmonies to Rex’s baritone. ^w^ He made an excellent bass AND metronome. 😀
People in the comments under that video frequently say how terrifying the sounds are… but I honestly can’t help but find them soothing! If I was in a forest at night and there were some Tyrannos about, making these sounds, then contrary to being terrified I’d probably just want to lay down on the loam and let their vibrations come up through me from the earth. As long as I could be assured I was not on their menu, that might be a very peaceful experience. ^_^
(…Gosh darnit, I want Sekoiya to KEEP her new Tyranno-friend. I want him to come back for more pictures later. 😀 )
Here’s a portrait of Tinder, a character from Accidental Elemental. :3 I did a pencil sketch of her (in school, muhahaaa >;D) and then scanned it in to color it digitally. 🙂
Tinder is one of only a couple of characters in this story who has actually made me laugh out loud while writing her in the script. 😀 Her sass and her clever schemes are just hilarious! I can’t wait until she actually shows up in the comic. ^u^

We get to see some nose fire, at last… yay! 😀
Probably will be the last update before my current school semester is over, which will be about 3 weeks from the date of this posting. In the meantime, I’m going to try to keep working on a buffer of pages. :3
