Story Clip

From Tales of the Fatherless

When he woke it was to a strange living vision of Vaelore. He remembered himself in miraculous detail...saw himself standing beside the Scarlon Manor, hidden in morning shade, watching the summer sunlight draw lazy stripes across the front road. How ignorant, how hopeful that boy had been. He should have known the fall was coming, that the great walls would crumble, that everything would perish. He had only been playing a game, hadn’t he? Obsessed with retaining his wealth, with becoming a man of distinction. Had he lost the meaning of that, along the way? His expensive clothes and refined tastes could be seen in any person raised in the high city. There was nothing distinguished about it. His passion went only skin deep, didn’t penetrate the muscle.
What had been the point of it all?

And then, afterward...when everything cracked and broke, and he lost those dear things he had cherished like a child--when he had lost even the right to his wealth...maybe then, he had found some real direction--! To restore honor to his name. His family’s name. But had that been anything more than frustration at losing the wealth? If he restored the name, but remained penniless, would that suffice?

Had nearly starving in the waste, freezing on the endless, lost road, taught him nothing, save to be afraid?

He was a half-thing, an almost-person, before Vycean.

Before the Temple.

Before Jax.

Journal Entry: Wed Aug 24, 2016, 12:23 PM
Hi everyone! 

To anyone who caught my last journal about the music performance...I didn't get a very good recording (the guy said he was recording it, but didn't use great equipment. :/)
here's the recording anyway, if you'd like to listen!


There's another recording of the same piece that's a lot clearer on my soundcloud there, as well as a few other pieces (including one with me singing!!! ;D) Take a listen, if you like. 

Okay, on to the more exciting things.

I was promoted two weeks ago! I'm a supervisor at my work now, which means I get to boss people around (as if I wasn't doing that already, HAH.) It comes with a decent pay raise, and more hours, so I'll be making almost twice as much! Maybe I won't be able to categorize myself as a starving artist anymore, heh, heh...yeah. No. 

The sad part of this is that I haven't had a ton of time for drawing, or painting, so I might be a little scarce the next few weeks as I get used to my new schedule and workload. I will be taking my sketchbook to work though, just to keep the art withdrawal from killing me, and I'll probably be putting sketches up on my Facebook Page if they aren't completely horrendous. 

Thanks watchers for all that you are! You inspire me to keep creating, and fight back against the ever present "you suck at everything" shadow that most of us artists seem to have.

Welcome to my DeviantArt Profile! I'm Danielle, a 20-something artist
living in the western United States. I am obsessed with stories, and
with telling those stories through paintings! Most of the paintings you will see
in my gallery are from my personal projects: either Tales of the Fatherless (an epic
fantasy series) or The Last Soul Eater (a smaller, side project).
I am generally available for commissions at all times--just send me a note!
