Pursuit of Hoppiness by ClefJ
Pursuit of Hoppiness
"So, is that the new ale? Can this one try it?"
*pat pat* "Of course! But you'll have to reach it!"

Well, when there's a sorceress that can send things to other planets, a ninja has to ninja.

It's about time something new came out, I felt like revisiting a couple Pathfinder characters; Yu of house Cail, and Elizabeth Oaks. Big histories before they met, then big players in a Dragon War, they found a loving relationship between each other. Then they decided to open up a brewery and tavern that bridges the gap between the real world and realm of the Fae, called the Pursuit of Hoppiness.

It turned out alright, although I'm still terrible at folding cloths. I just got a new job position, but hopefully art doesn't stay as scarce as it has been!
Road to Wendolvale by ClefJ
Road to Wendolvale
Not bad for one night's work - Ultimately I was nervous about this because I've never drawn horses before in my life! D: I think ... I think they came out alright. Right?

Anyways. Here's the first bit of new artwork for my new novel, Blaze Rising, a tale of knights in the Scottish highlands defending the hidden castle-town of Wendolvale against cultists exploiting the Black Death to undermine the Church and life throughout Great Britain. Seen here is Lord Commander Clef Cross (oh yes, he's back, in something meaningful this time) riding alongside his ward, Jeane. Jeane, a clairvoyant, both hunts for glory as a Knight Commander and hides from it, as her powers could attract unwanted attention from the Church. Clef has brought those of his Order that have survived the war with France back to Scotland to secure precious cargo; books and scrolls of untold knowledge that could be lost forever as the world falls apart from the Plague.

Terribly sorry for not being around for a looong while, but hopefully this is a sign of good things to come. I hope you enjoy!

Weapon of Hope - Escape by ClefJ
Weapon of Hope - Escape

One blood-soaked hand pushed open the gate to the lift, imagining he was enjoying the cool touch of the metal. Somehow it eased Sedonna's mind, just a little, but it didn't do much for the very real fire in his heart. Whenever he was tired of tormenting himself and had drifted into insanity's corner once more, he could end it all any time he wished.

He searched for that desire, but found nothing of the sort. Instead, something surpassed the wrongness of all the world when he looked up to meet Alice's eyes. He stumbled forward in his tattered cellsuit, maintaining his balance, as his life did depend on that; a tumble to either side meant a plummet to the disintegrating ground below, churning with golden alien machines. The horror that unfolded around them was calmed by whatever Sedonna saw in those eyes; in them there was no storm. Not anymore.

Alice shouted his name. Alesiel too . . . such wonderful friends to have. He wondered how different it might be if he was never a Paladin. If he never fought for the Aristocracy, or sought Eru out on his Master's wish. He may not have brought them here to experience a terrible fate. He would never have found his future in them.

Sedonna vaguely felt like he should be praying, but he felt that even that would take too much out of him. Alesiel screamed as she and Alice dragged his collapsed body into the shuttle, Rann hissing for some peace and quiet as the shuttle charged its engines.

Perhaps fate would send them to God that night. Perhaps not. He’d never wanted to die in the first place, but there were worse ways to die than to fulfill a dying man's wish. There were far, far worse ways to die than bringing a little truth and justice to the galaxy. Real life did not automatically reward righteous actions with righteous fates, but he might yet find the opportunity to forge it. Or they might be crushed under the collapsing city above and below, torn apart by the Enders falling like rain onto the planet, and the world would never know or care about what they've accomplished. And God help him, all he could do was wait and see.

Spent most of today on this sucker, turned out lovely I think. A little sloppy, but what isn't from me lately. XD The last illustration that I needed in order to publish my scifi novel, at long last. Looking forward to it. CHEERS!
Kahanesel by ClefJ
Just adding a screen from my most recent experiment in Skyrim Modding, a nice magma-filled dwemer dungeon. And Clef. Always Clef.
It's been a long time between posts, the old excuses, y'know? Summer is not the laziest time for work at the Hampton Inn. XD

Anyways. I'm here for you now to talk about my new book! Published and ready to be bought and read.

AMIDROR is its title, a romance fantasy starring characters you may have seen before in my art. Takao and Shier, warriors of fortune caught in the machinations of the worlds first international organized crime syndicate. They are assisted by an alchemist named Jerich (who had been hunting the Syndicate's leaders for many months already) and many officers of the Law. Trust between the three is an issue to observe, as well as how to live one's life when you're cast out in Fate's chaotic sea.

Here is a small excerpt:

"She told me a story once, Shier. It's like this; sometimes, when you've a very large farm with many seeds to lay, you think how terribly huge a job it is and feel sure you'll never get all those little seeds buried in time. And then you start to hurry. You work faster, and faster, and every time you look up there seems to be just as much left to sow as before, and you try even harder, and you panic, and in the end you're out of breath and you have to stop, and still the farm stretches away in front of you."

Shier shrugged. "Farming never really came to mind as a lifestyle."

 "That isn't my point. You must never think of the whole farm and toil at once, understand? You must only concentrate on the next step, the next breath, the next seed, and the next, and the next. Nothing else. That way you enjoy your work, which . . . is important, because then you make a good job of it. And that's how it ought to be. And all at once, before you know it, you find you've ensured a proper harvest, bit by bit. That's how life should be too, I've been told."

Well, this is a surpise; I didn't know you had a deviantart as well. It's me, Kenner, from Advanced Anime.

I primarily use this place to share my 3D artwork online, although AA still remains my "main home" and I haven't uploaded anything here in ages. Personally, I find DA too large and its overall scope too wide to make this my main site for uploading content

That's probably accurate. I've been getting better views on Imgur.
