I never knew how many types of turbans there were before today. This is only a select amount too. I blame growing up in the boonies. I think I’ve seen about 4 turbans in my life? And whenever I see someone wearing one I totally stare. It’s not because I think they’re a terrorist or an untrustworthy foreigner– no, I just want to know how the heck all that cloth is tied up. I’ll probably youtube it eventually, but until then… I will keep wondering. (I think it’s glued on)

Meet Kishen. He’s a smart guy– knows a lot about Hinduism, and since he’s a swami, he should know alot. He is Sachin’s uncle (through marriage) although he’s kinda distant. I’m not sure if I like him having a short beard or not… I guess it depends the beard/shaven/mustache ratio. That balance must be contained!
a lil sketch of Sachin and a random swami/guru. I quick colored it to test some colors. I can already tell it will be a treat because of all the bright lively colors and a nightmare to make their shadows look right. I will probably be using Red Moon Rising‘s way of coloring shadows because it is quite nice.
Also! because I have been a lazy horribly person by not updating I will give you more concept art over the weekend! Also again! I am blonde and I don’t have summer classes until the end of next month. Doh! So I am planning on getting this story started before then. That is my goal!
Today I decided “hey I’ll do this short story arc instead of random comics and we’ll see where this goes. I should be able to make the first page without color today.”
I started doing research and then naming characters and then looking up clothing and history and all that jazz that makes a story epic and then it was like 2… so i figured let’s do some concepts for all these people but I only got one down I think.
So here we have the peddler, Jirair, who moves between Romania, Croatia, Serbia, and the surrounding countries. I’m not sure if all of those countries existed quite so during the Ottoman empire but that’s not that important. He is a great storyteller and moves from town to town selling wares and telling stories for free housing. He’s pretty much couch-surfing before either couches or surfing was invented. Way to go, Jirair!
Also the Ottoman Empire is fascinating; how come I didn’t learn about all this stuff in school? Heck I thought the Ottoman Empire was almost the same as the Holy Roman Empire. Must be my great private schooling at work.
See you all tomorrow!
it is almost finally becoming spring here. The temp today was 40F! Practically summer!
A lot of things have been in the works today. I’ve got all my classes picked out until graduation (whoopie!) and most of my paperwork done for my study abroad trip at the end of the summer. (yahoo!) I’m very excited to take a watercolor class this summer so expect to have some paintings up in a few months!
Centaurs. They aren’t the cutest things. In fact, I think they’d need a lot of chiropractic help. Just think how long their spine must be! Like 8 feet long dude. Crazy. And how do you sleep at night? Do you sit up or do you flop sideways on the ground? I’m not even sure sleeping on your back would be feasible… Centaur chiropractors must be busy.
In other news- we are on vacation! See you monday!
HAPPY PI DAY!
I hope you are enjoying some pie right now to celebrate being a math nerd. I sure wish I was!
Sorry for dropping off the map on Thursday and Fri. It was one of those really sleepy days, the kind where you stare at the ceiling for half an hour wondering if there’s a gas leak in the house because you are so tired for no reason. Also! I have figured out what I’m doing for school and decided (almost) last minute that I wanted to go on a month long study abroad at the end of the summer to wonderful Mexico! If I am accepted I will be headed off the the very warm Veracruz area to draw and do some lithography. I am very excited. So I had a very busy day today doing all the math and paperwork for all of that. Now to pick out classes for the summer….
