Deep Runners of Gyongxe by DevonianFossil
Deep Runners of Gyongxe
:icontamora-pierce-fans: October contest, colored with the closest colored pencil approximation to the Terra color set (… ) I could get it to. If people want I can include the colors combined to get the general effect of each too.

I liked Battle Magic and the setting in Gyongxe for the very same thing that seems to have bothered so many other people: the many gods and creatures of Gyongxe. They dance in paintings, delight in catching the oblivious humans off guard, and even land a kiss on a main character at one point. What's not to like?

This happens to be from a scene where Evvy turns from inspecting a tunnel painting of an odd eagle-headed, horse-bodied and spindle-legged fiction to find that it's not so fictional after all...

I've since found this is not entirely accurate, because outside of that scene they were described as cat-bodied. Not being a cat-owner I have very little idea of what that means, so I couldn't include it. Every cat I've dealt with seems to be made of imperious annoyance obscured by abundant fur.

I guess great minds think a like since we all ended up picking the same color scheme.
I... think I finally made it.

Today I graduated with my Bachelors of Science in Earth Science*, the first real step towards a childhood dream of being a scientist. I'm still pretty shell-shocked, I'm sure I'll have more to say later. I have promises to keep/And miles to go before I sleep.

*Geology, for any institution that doesn't have a strange naming scheme like mine.

Going pretty well, I enjoy drawing it but the hard part is continuing to grow my audience.

It can be hard to reach new audiences, but I think tumblr can make that a lot easier for you than deviantart. Perhaps urging people to reblog it (with credit of course!) could work? There's also different readers. I'm the kind of person who reads a bunch of webcomics in one fell swoop, usually when I come across the link out of the blue.
