“Well, let’s see. The air is warming, the days are getting longer, and the buttercups are blooming. How about a showcase of some tikedi gardening.” – William Smith
And a showcase it shall be! Featuring Calterra and also:
… Myrnak and Aurorin! Some actually garden, others are more of the pots on shelves variety, and everyone’s got a different reason for what they grow.
Speaking of, man, I need to get on with making my own green space green.
Here’s the first of my Custom Character Commissions
over on Patreon. (There’s still one slot left for this round, btw!) This one is for WDG, of a diver/fisherman Tieke. He’s slated to make an appearance in the comic sometime in the near-ish future. I hope to work these cameos in relatively quickly after commission completion, but sometimes it’ll take a while for just the right scene to present itself. 🙂
Bonus! He suggested an alternate outfit, so I drew up a second angle:
I discovered that it was easier to do two paintings, so that’s likely how I’ll handle future commissions of this type as well. I’m going to try to give everybody two different angles, like the example image of Sarestra in the original post.
Thanks again to those who’ve commissioned me so far! You guys have been so great and so patient and encouraging.
Tikedi foraging in a blooming part of the Tarsin Desert after an exceptional rain where there isn’t usually, with flowers *everywhere*
– J.N Squire
Possibly a bit of an alternate universe – I couldn’t resist having Kraelyn in there. I think this is an idea that would work really well as a finished piece. It’s hard to capture the whole image in my head with just pencil scribblings. I’m fond of it, though. I’ve probably mentioned it before, but one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite books involves rain in the desert, swimming among stars, and a carpet of sudden flowers. Yeah, I’m fond of this. 😀
