A couple of weeks ago, I said I’d put up notices whenever a new chapter of Jonathan Chandler’s fantasy novel was out, and here it is! He’s putting them out piece by piece along with flash fictions on his blog, really dunking you into his world and going for full immersion.
So here are a few images from his first chapter, along with the links to read/listen to it! I’ll let you guys know when Chapter Two is finished.
First, for your listening:
That’s scene one. You guys can take it from there.
I’ve been a little out of the loop around here since October ended, but I’m still around. So to all those I missed, a belated happy holidays and happy 2019! Better late than never, I suppose.
For the past couple of months, I’ve been working with a talented high fantasy writer, Jonathan Chandler, to illustrate his novel, The Dragon’s Groom. The writing is vivid, the descriptions captivating, and the characters intriguing. You can read his work as he releases it at https://vaultoforendathos.wordpress.com or if you prefer to hear your stories read to you, check him out at Deep Time Tales on Youtube!
I’ll put up notices of his work as they get released, as he’s publishing them slowly. The prologue and chapter one are both out, and I’ve linked you guys up to the first episode of the prologue just down below. The images here are from that.
The story begins as the great fae wolf, Famine, one of the children of Nyleth and protectors of the world, receives some strange news from a druid.
Endings don’t have to be sad. In fact, they can be celebrated, and what better way to celebrate than with cake? Bunny does have some unconventional methods of cutting a slice though.
It’s been a great Inktober, everyone! See you next year for the same! 🙂
You can watch the making right here:
Jolt, bump, squash, zooooooom.
And here we have a scene from a New York City subway done in a style slightly different from my usual one. Inspired by the ‘Rhapsody in Blue’ segment from Fantasia 2000.
Forever…and ever…and ever…
The two creepy twins from The Shining, but fuzzy.
Red sky at morning, sailors take warning, until the red fades to grey and black and indigo blue, at which point, be afraid. There is a hum in the air, a sensation of electricity prickling down the mast and through the planks under your feet as the waves begin to pitch and swell all the greater. Then, you hear it. The sound of thunder at sea is a sign of a storm, and a sign of a storm is a sign that Calypso is awake.
And she is very very angry.
It’s been a long day for the Three-Tailed Fox, so he takes a nice long stretch from the tips of his paws to the ends of his tails. The bunnies follow his lead in their own ways. Little Tree tries.
With the holiday season rolling in, Fish Girl, Squiddy, and the visiting bunnies think about what they’re most thankful for. They get each other plenty of gifts, make them when they can’t buy them, but at the end, there’s nothing to beat the best present of all.
Sometimes things that look soft are prickly and things that look prickly are soft.
Fish Girl is contemplating chopping her hair short and trying out a new look. Squiddy doesn’t like it. The very thought makes him shiver. It’s all a bit too drastic for his taste, and it takes forever to grow back, but then again, he’s never been too fond of change.
What do you think?
