Red Riding Hood and Cub


Folklore stories have been told to us at a young age and listening to them again decades after, the characters remain in that Time standstill, forever remaining as they always were, since the first time the story was told and as it registered on our memory.
But, what if… Time could be scrambled and played with? Well, that’s exactly what we bring you today! A not so small Red Riding Hood holding a cub Wolf.

The question remains: Nurture or Nature? Is he already a bad Wolf in the making? A bright mind eager to learn and empathize? We leave that to you and your own imagination.

A walk in the Past – Vasil


After going through the memory lane on a recent post, we were also reminded of our character named Vasil, who we never got to post in the past but if Reghis can have his own post it’s only fair to give Vasil the experience as well.
Vasil is from the game called “Tree of Saviour” and his main job was swordsman.

It helps to reminisce about the games when there’s no time to play them.

Comfort and Sweaters 2

A mix of traditional drawing in sumi ink (lines and shading) with digital colours applied!

This is a revisit to reminisce over the specific comfort that comes from a soft sweater that hugs you the right way.
Even when it’s not exactly the right size – preferably oversize- wearing it brings a shroud of solace and wanting to be greedy we’ll add the choice of topping it with a beverage at the exact right temperature.

Let the stress melt away through the fiber spell!

The first ode to the sweater comfort!

A walk in the Past – Reghis, the Giant

Reghis, the Giant!

A long time ago, when we still had time to play online games, we fell in love with Mabinogi.

Quite easy to guess our interest as the lore of the game was based on the Welsh Mabinogion, the earliest prose stories of the literature of Britain.

Funny though, that the game is South Korean!

One of the races in the game (a later adition), were the fierce giant folk! Ah, the joys of fighting fomors with one of these…

A screenshot, not a mugshot… Really.

So here’s an old reendition of one of our giants, a very broody and sturdy fellow!
It’s always fun to draw and give your own insight to a character, especially when the character creation had a few limitations. But that was part of the vibrant charm of this game which, it’s still online! Wow!

What task must his young (and probably traumatized) daughter accomplish for one final time? Let us discover together!
