So my last blog post was my New Years post, in which, of course, I had a “write more blog posts” resolution.
Absorb that for a moment.
Notice the number of posts I’ve written in 2017.
*ominous cricket noises*
Where did I (and the characters) disappear to? Well the easy answer would be to blame college, but the spring semester was actually pretty boring, so the truth is?
I just gave up. I felt like my blog was ignored and there was no point in me posting. I felt that if I stopped, no one would even notice. (That last one kinda seems to be true, but.)
I also ran out of things to say.
Wow, this conversation got depressing quickly. As you can tell by the existence of this post, though, I am here! I can’t really guarantee a whole lot, but I think I’m gonna try blogging again. I miss it.
In case you all are wondering, I will be continuing Character Studies. And my characters are all still here; I just kicked them out for this one post. In fact, I’ll be posting a Character Studies either later today or tomorrow, so anyone who hasn’t forgotten what it is can squeeze in a quick August one.
Now onto cheerier things! During my hiatus, I drew the blog’s whole cast as chibis. They’re really rather silly and pointless, but still fun, and it seemed like a fun post would be a good way to get back into blogging, right?
So first, the Oracular cast.
So here we have Kalvias and Cimizelle.
What Kalvias is looking at, we honestly have no idea.
Kalvias: Maybe it’s my cat?
Cimizelle: *snorts* It very well could be your cat.
These two are Ereinne (left) and Iaelie (right).
You didn’t know they wore headscarfs, did you? I didn’t know either until recently.
World-building, amirite? Teehee.
Sometimes when Iaelie’s not-grumpy—
Ereinne: That’s rare, though.
—she’ll wear flowers in her headscarf. (Also be glad Ereinne’s clothing isn’t blinding this time. Well, any more blinding than that orange already is.)
Here we have Raethl and Meriela. Yes, Meriela really is that tiny.
That is the messiest you will ever see Raethl’s hair.
Raethl: Meri, are you still barefoot?
Meriela: Yes. You know I hate shoes.
And last but not least for the Oracular staff, Saelas and Tiri! The wall decoration and the contrary sourpuss.
Did I say that out loud?
Tiri: *glaring* Yes, you did.
Okay but seriously, that’s Tiri’s normal face.
And also I’m fairly certain that’s the closest to a smile Saelas gets. He’s also my only character with sideburns. One time I tried to draw him semi-realistic and he looked like he’d stepped out of Pride and Prejudice.
Now the Sleeping in Cyberspace cast!
Left to right: Kivessa, Ceveth, and Dazant.
It’s a Cev sandwich.
Ceveth: Now I’m hungry…
And that is the entire Studies in Character cast, so that’s all.
No, I did not draw myself as a chibi.
Have a nice day.
