LET’S DO THIS!
let’s start with a dumb doodle
The very first Sage, the first person to master magic entirely was- and still is- the Faerie Queen Anyana. Though she abdicated centuries ago to avoid suspicion over her excessively long life, she still remains in contact with the Sages, learning more and more and teaching them as she goes.
She is the most highly revered of all magic users.
I’ve been working on this thing for almost a year now. First with pen on paper, and then I’ve been trying to draw it digitally. Once I actually work up the nerve to post them and progress with my pages, I’m planning on finding a good webcomic host so I can put it up online. It’s primarily a labor of love, because I’ve grown to love my world and my story, and I’m not actually hoping to profit off it or even expect it to grow big, but I still want to do it anyway.
What is it? Atlas: The Charge of Starlight Peak. It’s a high fantasy story where a motley group of people are faced with a huge threat.
Dorian Solar’Ariel is a high elf General that’s famous for leading the human king’s armies against the invading orcs. Seven years after that momentous victory, Dorian retires from his title and joins a philanthropic organization known as The Silver Order. When his court mage, Felix, is suddenly overcome with a magical illness, the two locate the source of his problems and find out that an ancient demon of legend is about to awaken after several centuries of slumber. Now, Dorian is suddenly faced with a difficult task of locating suitable soldiers and building an army, all the while having to contest for resources with the ambitious black mage, Alexus.
The cast includes lovely people like high elven bruiser General-Princess Anastysia, orc underground crime queen Genovac, and literal shapeshifting dragon Sylvara. I told my boyfriend that it’s a pretty typical fantasy except it’s not skewed for the eyes of cis white men, and he told me that makes all the difference.
(Examples being: Dorian is a bisexual, homoromantic, mostly male presenting non-binary high elf, Felix is pansexual hella feminine non-binary Indian human who suffers from depression, Genovac is a lesbian orc with a tragic backstory, etc. just to name a few)
Wow, kind of embarrassing to post about this here. But here you go. Here is something that is incredibly important to me. (I’d love it if anyone asked me about it, but I doubt that’s likely.)
This is from the webcomic Agents of the Realm created by froontherun (an amazing Haitian artist her art-only blog is here)! It stars WoC Magical Girls and of course featuring the main protag (pictured here) Norah! You can keep up with development of Agents of the Realm by following their tumblr here!
Gods I fell in love with Rat Queens, fast and hard. Everyone needs to read it, go do that now.
