Here’s an image done by Adrian Ricker of the Moon Goddess, the patron deity of The Valley of Ten Crescents!
A version of the Holy Daughter worshiped in Haran, the Goddess is the sole divinity of the region, watching over her children and guiding them with ‘Her Black Hand.’
The Goddess presides over all matters of Valley society but is known for her influence on matters of change, protection, parents, mercy, comfort, secrets, revelation, water, love and desire. She is often represented in temples in murals or with statues, the position of her hands and her items implying which aspect of the Goddess the temple focuses on.
As the Goddess she has no partner but has many consorts which she cycles through as she sees fit.
Her altar is a low table upon which is placed a silver or white bowl or chalice, filled with water. Water and night blooming flowers are sacred to her, as are willows, snail shells and white stones. Her colors are grey, white, black and silver.
Her clergy is made up mostly of priestesses, who watch over the spiritual matters of the Valley, leading in worship, accepting confession, officiating vows of faithfulness, overseeing the dispensing of the belongings of the dead etc. The High Priestesses are referred to as ‘Her Luminance,’ and temples are loosely associated with each other, each temple deciding its own structure for the most part, as dictated by the needs of their congregations.
The fortunate dead are said to go to Her Bosom. Those who harmed others in life are said to go to Her Hems. However, even in the afterlife there is hope for change. Those who erred in life may struggle in death and try to climb up her robes to Her Bosom, facing trials along the way.
Common swears/oaths: By Her Bosom, By Her Black Hand
Common swears (less polite) By Her Tits, Chew Her Hems, Hem-chawer
WHOA. First post.
Gangsters! Dogs! Jackasses! Singing! Kissing! It’s going to have all that and more.
HEY, LOOK, I DID A THING.
Yo! yo! Check it out!
When the comic finally goes live, pages will be posted here as well as the main site. Go and check it out if you haven’t already!
Today’s warm-up drawing is in honor of TPP finally getting all the Badges!
Just a reminder that Shamsee is still being worked on! Sorry I haven’t been updating very regularly, but I’ll be sharing more art as it gets made. Still a lot of pages to ink.
This is one of the Deities from the Land of the Ten Crescents. Just a little flavor image to get hyped for the comic!
A warm-up I did yesterday that I thought turned out alright.
Bravely default has been a very pleasant experience so far. Highly recommended for fans of old SquareEnix, especially if you are like me and not sure if you can play turn-based stuff anymore. Turns out I can!
been playing Pokemon an awful lot.
A Commission I did for a friend.
I participated in James Harvey’s awesome Bartkira project. The following pages are from Volume 4, pages 315-320.
The whole thing was a really strange experiment, trying to combine both of their distinct styles with some of flavor of my own. I’m not sure how successful mine are, but I had a blast.
Thanks again to James Harvey for putting together the best comic jam ever!
