Princess Halori Kitasha by Aelius24
Princess Halori Kitasha
Princess Halori Kitasha is the heir to the throne of the Koruzul tribe.  She lived a calm, happy life but was often sheltered from the harsh realities of the rest of the world.  Then again, life with the extremely secluded tribe was rather pleasant, due to agreements made with the rest of the Gresh'ran nation to preserve the lands and its peoples within.  The tribe lived on a series of islands separated from the rest of the continent and was well-defended not only by geography, but also a legion of talented warriors whose skills were constantly sharpened by a series of highly-competitive games they took pride in.

Halori herself was taught many talents as she grew up, but one talent she unexpectedly had a knack for was fishing.  Even at a young age, her talent for hunting quickly became evident, and her parents wondered if keeping her around the noble houses, separated from the rest of her people, would be wise.   As a way of gradually introducing her to the rest of the tribe, two others were brought to her with the hope that they could become friends: a girl named Katarr who was the daughter of a high guard, and Naloc, the son of a prominent counselor.  Katarr and Naloc were around the same age as Halori and were brought to her as playmates, as the king and queen were hesitant about introducing Halori to the rest of the tribe’s young until she was older.  Sure enough, the three grew close and ensured the princess was not lonely during her first years.  Later on after being integrated with the rest of the tribe, Katarr and Naloc remained with Halori.  Soon after she came of age, Halori joined others in ceremonial hunts and proved to be a capable catcher of food, rivaling even some of the seasoned hunters of the tribe.  This also allowed her to mingle with the rest of the her people outside of the nobility.

And here we are now, seeing Princess Halori as a beautiful young woman, taking part on one of the tribe's ceremonial hunts and ornamented for the part.  Her role this time would be to use her own glittering jewelry and a sacred staff to attract and hypnotize nearby fish so the rest of the tribe can swoop in and catch them.


I actually created a couple of templates for her, showing different tribal garb, but in the interest of time I decided only to color her ceremonial huntress ornamentation, as that was the one I liked best.

I have plans for this lovely lady, but for now, I'm letting her enjoy her calm life within the tribe ^_^

A brand new year, and with it plenty of opportunities for us all.  Call them resolutions, goals, or whatever.  The important part is acting on them.

For me, I've targeted a couple of anthologies with the intention of submitting more short stories.  I hope to make good on my plans stated back in October on my birthday, and this time I'm checking the usual places more frequently so I don't miss out on anything.  I've already got a number of ideas to write, and most of them will be due to the publishers in March or April, so the time to get started is now.  I'm feeling more confident in my work, as I continue to write more often (you may notice that fiction is coming up more frequently in my gallery).  In fact there's even one I've been holding on to that's ready to go as soon as the commissioner gives the go-ahead, and with it a few full-color pics that have also been ready for submission.

Oh, speaking of art, I'm working right now on a new piece that I hope to complete by tomorrow, if not today (yeah, I spent New Year's Eve not at a party, but doing artwork while listening in on two other art streams =p ).  Also coming up is my first ever TEN-character full-color work.  That's right, I actually managed to pack ten characters into a single picture, with a background!  It might take me a while to finish (more reason to finally get a new computer so I don't risk losing it in a crash), but that's coming up eventually.  In addition, I've been getting some ideas for the R-Force and potential new uniforms, which shouldn't really be a surprise since I'm rarely satisfied with my designs for them.

Speaking of the R-Force and Aurans in general, I'm so close to submitting Auran Legend that I'm getting jitters about possibly being rejected.  Even so, a work that's never submitted will never get published.  Right now I'm just adding a bit to fill in the continuity gaps and flesh out the characters a bit more, since I haven't quite hit that 90,000 world sweet spot for debut novels yet.  I also need to trim the synopsis and work on the cover letter.  I've already got a few potential publishers lined up to submit to, and I'm slightly embarrassed about how long it's taken me to actually get to this point.  Submitting my first novel, not a short story or fan work.  A full-text work!  That reminds me, I need to start looking around for artists to illustrate it.  It's all part of the goal I made on last year's birthday, and this year, in 2015, I don't want to miss out on any opportunities.

Regarding other opportunities, I'm still on track for making Furry Weekend Atlanta this year, as well as Anthrocon.  I'm hopeful about Midwest FurFest, but that depends on whether or not it clashes with finals week like it did last year.  Outside of cons, I expect to be just as active around here as ever.

And so, let us make the most of each day this year.  May this year be one of success, growth, and optimism for all of us!

Tangled Christmas Lights by Aelius24
Tangled Christmas Lights
No one knows just how Christmas lights, no matter how neatly tied, end up tangled by the time you take them back out of the attic to decorate with.  Having antlers getting in the way just makes things more difficult!  It seems the doe here has found a different solution...

Here's hoping everybody has a wonderful holiday, no matter what they celebrate!  Hoping for less tangles, too ;-)

My current computer is over six years old by now, and while it has served me well in that time, its age is definitely showing.  Lately I've noticed random files becoming corrupted, and earlier tonight a drawing I was working on in Photoshop suddenly became unreadable despite having saved it an hour ago.  While I do have a backup to the file, I still lost a good bit of work and I fear trying again.  I also fear that it's only a matter of time until a necessary file winds up corrupted and the computer bricks.

It's time to get a new computer.

To help offset the cost, I'm opening up sketch commissions!  Prices start at $20 for a single character with no background.  Additional characters are $5 each, and a detailed background is also $5 extra.  If your character has detailed extra features like wings, that's an extra $3.  This is the level of detail to expect: Echo sketch one by Aelius24

Standard policies (will draw/will not draw, etc.) apply.  Feel free to ask if you're not sure.

Now, I'm fully okay with being commissioned for ink and full color work, but given the state of my computer I'm not sure if I'll be able to complete it until I get a new one.

So how about it, folks?  It's not exactly Iron Artist, but I do hope to soften the blow to my funds (I could use some more art practice anyway - I finally managed to pry myself away from Destiny).  Spread the word if you can!

Hi, I'm Aelius. Just a simple fennec fox from the southeastern USA.
I consider myself both a writer and artist; in my gallery you're bound to find a lot of characters who are featured in my tales (one of them I'm hoping to turn into a novel soon).

Let's see... what else...
- I'm also a Christian (no worries, I'm not the kind you see on TV ^_^)
- Love video games, writing fiction, reading fiction, drawing whatever comes into my mind, listening to music... and simply daydreaming.
- I have Attention Deficit Disorder (without the hyperactivity; it exists =p ), but I wouldn't really consider it a bad thing...
- Sorry, but I don't RP, here or anywhere else.

And for those interested, I post commissions from other artists in my Scraps gallery. Check 'em out to see if I've commissioned an artist you like :)

But do you think it could be an actual issue or do you already have that in mind? Only ask because the story is paused right now.

Actually, the whole story arc for the comic is already planned out, so as a policy we can't really bring in ideas from fanfics :)  We definitely encourage the writing, though!  We love seeing how others interpret the characters.
