Qari and Rolo

25 Apr

That is right, folks; Rolo is the winner of the anteater naming contest. I would like to thank FOTS Fantasy for the winning submission, and also thank everyone for their great ideas. Some of you may remember a while ago I posted a picture I drew of a man in a skull helm. I decided to use that drawing for Qari. These two characters are enjoyable to write about. I look forward to advancing their storyline.


That brings me to the blood monkeys. They, too, will be further explored in the coming chapters. I like the idea of vine strewn temples offered up by Monkey Blood.  Some of the blood monkeys will have been taught speech by the demon monkey. They make spears and other crude weapons and tools. There will be a few surprises in their society, however.

    A Demon Monkey sounds pretty scary to me! Loving the imagery with the sketches.

      Thank you. It helps me visualize so I can better write them. The demon monkey is very scary. He changes the dynamic of the island, and sets events in motion that advance the story.
