As the evening begins to settle on the megatropolis a dim glow begins to poke out of the windows and smoke beings to rise out of the stone chimney. The scent of roasting meats begins to draw a small crowd outside the building, many beings stealing a glance inside to see what the delicious aroma is exactly. They would see a large fire pit in the middle of an open room, raised up from the polished hardwood floor with stone keeping the fires contained. Several different exotic animals would be roasting over the pit, slowly turning as to cook evenly. The rest of the room has tables and chairs scattered about, not exactly placed for maximum seating, with a candle set on each table. A few booth are on left wall. In the back sits a large fireplace, though the fire would not be lit quite yet, and on the right a bar with stool seating. The shelves behind the bar are filled with a variety of different liquors and alcohols.
Anyone looking in would more than likely catch sight of the establishment's owner and only employee, a shy young woman with large rabbit ears. Her outfits are usually simple and modest with a few exceptions for special occasions. She bustles about making sure everything is cleaned and polished as well as all the food that maybe cooked is prepped and ready. The last thing she does before opening is lite the fire in main fireplace.
As the central bell tolls seven the door to The Traveler's Rest is unlocked. Those who had been attracted by the aroma of the cooking meats often take seats near the fire pit in hopes of getting the best cuts. As the crowd settles in, the only worker rushes around filling their tankards and getting them drinks. She moves gracefully about and rarely forgets an order all while constantly keeping an eye on the roasting meats. This first rush is oddly enough those who have never been the place before. The regulars begin wandering about an hour after opening, taking their time to say hi to the owner and ask if she needs any help, which she will always deny. A few often ignore her and help out a little anyway before finding a seat.
As the night wears on, the roasted meats are carved up and served. The newcomers quickly find out that there is no good cut for every piece of meat off the animals is as good as the others. The vegetables are also cooked to near perfection. Many newcomers leave after enjoying a meal quickly leaving only the regulars and a few soon to be regulars left. These regulars begin to regale the young owner with tales from their own adventures through out the omniverse often getting a quick kiss on the cheek or a free drink in return.
It is often quite late before the owner begins to clean things up and tries to shoo the reaming patrons out. Many stay to help out much to her protest. A few barter for a room for the remainder of the night. Once all the dishes are washed, the kitchen cleaned, and fires extinguished, the last patrons file out and the owner locks the door behind them. She goes around and blows out all the candles before heading to door in the back. Opening it she returns to her world and the life she lives in there.
I'm your run of the mill nerd-artist. I love video games, anime/cartoons, fantasy/scifi movies, and get very jealous of those who can draw better of me and wish I instantly had their skill.|
In the summer of 2009 while working as a groundskeeper at a cemetery I came up with the idea for a webcomic. This idea eventually led me to download a "how to draw Manga" book and see what I could do. I never actually read the book, just took tips here and there from it and in late 2009 I came up with my first drawings. A year later I dropped the comic idea didn't like keeping myself to deadlines and really wanted to just focus on improving and began just trying to get better at drawing. I then came up with my current batch of OCs who make up pretty much all my drawings.
I've never taken a class or any lessons on drawing. All I've learned has come from reading through different books own 5 now, talking to artist who have been inspirations to me to get tips and tricks, and a whole lot of trial and error.
I'd love to hear your feedback on my work. Though try not to be too harsh...
