Mock Cover Art

Hey, everyone! I decided this week to do something a little nonstandard for this place and post a little bit of artwork. A friend of mine, whose work you can find here (WARNING: Some content is NSFW!) drew up some art for the story. I wanted something to use as a basic cover art concept, and he worked with me to turn it into something I could use for a custom phone case.

I ordered through a custom phone case service, and got my case in recently. I made a few edits, but here’s the final version:

In case you were wondering over the names on the cover, they’re the three people who have contributed majorly to this story. The first is my own, the second is my wife, and the third is a close friend of mine. The three of us originated Erda as a joint writing project, and while that’s still ongoing, I took it upon myself to refine and rewrite the story for a more cohesive, reader-friendly experience.

I hope you enjoyed the update, and the art. I’m really fond of the way Naz is sitting and writing after a battle, and I think the color tones (red and blue mixing together) look stellar. Please do check out my friend’s work, he recently opened commissions and he’s a great artist.

First of all, welcome to my blog! I’m going to try to keep as much off-topic chatter off of the main site as I can, and update hopefully a page or two a week, minimum.

This story is going to be a big one, so please keep that in mind. It could take quite a while before things feel like they’re moving very fast, but bear with me and I promise I’ll do my best to produce high-quality work on a reasonable timeframe.

The first entry  can be found here. Subsequent entries will be linked to at the bottom of the previous entry, and organized by chapters– so if you’re looking for a particular chapter, search for its number, in Roman numeral format and surrounded in parentheses, like this: (I) or (VI).
