I realized I haven’t posted anything here aside from comic updates for awhile and I felt bad about that, so here’s something I drew last night for a new mini-comic in the works.
I’ve been thinking about the idea of queer enby crystal royalty for ages- I drafted up a first stab at this design back in October (it was actually intended for my Beyond anthology comic) and I’ve been chewing on it in various forms ever since, but it was only a few days ago when I remembered how my life used to revolve around shutter shades that it all came together. Their name is Editch or Edith (I wrote down ‘Editch Northstar’ last night but I’m not sure about the last name)- an impatient crystal warrior (and also secretly royalty but they don’t want to talk about that). They use neutral ‘they’ pronouns.
The crystal gila dragon is their pet/familiar. The little crystal frogs are a very transparent reference to my favourite point-and-click game ever (Kings Quest VII). Editch keeps a few frogs in a jar tied to their pack at all times. You never know when you might need a crystal frog.
Basically they wander around and kill monsters and roll their eyes a lot. I want to draw them forever.
