The Engineer — one of the many gods of the Diviner world; the patron deity of industry and war.
THE DIVINER is a fantasy RPG in the style of Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style stories and text adventures. We’ve already hit our main funding goal and heading towards stretch goals now. At $15,000 we’ll be able to include character romance and a short story collection!
Mike and I were talking about this character last night and working more stuff out huehueheue
Perhaps you have been wondering about this OC Ball you might have seen floating around. Wonder no longer! The Original Character Ball is an art jam being hosted by myself and geekysideburns with venue assistance from heysawbones, where we finally solve the problem of having a character all dressed up with nowhere to go - send them to the ball! After allowing early access for those on the official guest list, we are now opening all doors to the general public… that means you!
Over the week of December 15th through December 22nd we will be accepting submissions of your original character(s) enjoying themselves in a lavish setting, wearing their finest threads. Sound like something you’d be interested in? Please check out the tumblr linked above at ocball, read through the rules, peruse other attendees, and feel free to join in with preparation artwork or date-hunting before the event begins! It promises to be a high-class time for all.
Be sure to tag all posts 2013 oc ball so it can be easy for the hosts to find your posts. Also, feel free to pass it around, tell your friends! We want to see everyone there!
Friends, join us!!
It’s that time of year, it’s my sketch giveaway part 2! I thought this was pretty fun last time, so why not preemptively celebrate my next milestone while I’m on break. \o/

her hair got a lot bigger this take.
actually i like this so have some art \o/ nothing else worked out.
i was told to draw polks yesterday by haisi and forgot then bib reminded me of it
I’m stunned by this beauty… truly amazing. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT PROMPTED THIS BUT I’M GLAD IT HAPPENED.
Mandela fought against apartheid for decades, spent twenty-seven years in prison for his work, and was eventually elected President of South Africa in 1994. In 1993 he and F.W. de Klerk received the Nobel Peace Prize “for their work for the peaceful termination of the apartheid regime, and for laying the foundations for a new democratic South Africa”.
yEAH it is possible I will reblog this more. Thanks so much to the people who have bought it or passed it around! If you like it/want it, it would help me out a lot! (I’d like to do a printed sketchbook at some point, but this is what I can do for now and I tried to make it pretty nice.) Also feel free to recommend themes/ideas/etc. for future endeavours, it’s cool and helpful to know what people are into.
Having hit the halfway mark for this particular sketchbook, I thought maybe I would do it up all fancy as a digital download?! I have shared some of these before (though resized for the web) buuut there are also a few that I haven’t! It’s probably kind of silly/shouldn’t matter, but I’ve been using VILLAINOUS to both loosen up about (while simultaneously being very conscious of) directions in which I might take my work— having a new, even if tiny, space to screw around in has allowed me to have a lot of fun!
I also: included some visual development pieces&sketches for a small but ongoing project, and two .PSD files documenting more of how I work.
Have you guys checked out the Broken Telephone kickstarter yet?? I’m beyond excited to have been asked by Ryan Estrada to participate in this project. For as little as a dollar you can get all 18 issues! I’m doing one, and the rest will be drawn by such talents as Rachel Dukes, EA Denich, Elias Ericson and many many more! whaaat a good deal.
The story I’m illustrating is called “Exceptional Circumstances”, it takes place on an airplane and involves these three guys. I can honestly tell you I find the script hysterical and I’m just itching to get started.
If you can’t pledge, reblogs are HIGHLY appreciated. XOXO Carolyn Casey.
Hi guys. Time is running out- we’ve got 11 days to make just over 10,000 dollars. If we can’t hit that goal I don’t get to make a comic I’ve really been looking forward to making, so please, pretty please- if you can’t pledge, I’d love a juicy reblog. If you are able.
hey, if you guys support this Kickstarter, it means i have a job! come on y’all, you like pay-what-you-want comics, right!?
THE DIVINER - REBLOG THIS POST & FOLLOW US FOR A CHANCE TO CREATE YOUR OWN IN-GAME NPCTHE DIVINER is a fantasy text-based video game that blends
the unique individualization of choose-your-own adventure
games with the interactive gameplay mechanics of classic RPGs.Throughout The Diviner, you will encounter a variety of ancient
Deities here to either help or harm you. They stand as
towering Gods - forgotten but not lost - bitter and resentful
with the new world forged from their ashes. Will you aid these
enigmatic titans, or conquer them instead?
In addition to running our Kickstarter, we are also doing a giveaway to create your very own in-game NPC (with a unique character model! personality! and can actually speak with!) Only reblogs and follows count, but liking us on Facebook gives you an additional entry. Both the Kickstarter and giveaway ends December 21st. You can also reblog this post for a chance to win a copy of the game when it is released.
We are also open for Paypal donations!
GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!!!
Have a some boring headshot painting practice of my MH character Rene to prove I’m still drawing sort of.
THE DIVINER - Kickstarter Update #4
Our stretch goals have been unveiled! You can find more info about each tier here. We are also currently at 90% funding — very close, but still a ways to go!
SO with our funding very close to completion but 25 days left in the kickstarter, we have a list of stuff we’d like to include depending on the levels of funding we achieve!!
It’s a video game! Like old text adventure games and stuff like Oregon trail, where there’s art (ours is clearly a bit nicer) but the story is mostly told through text. And in Choose-your-own-adventure game fashion, it’s all about different choices you make. There are different political and religious factions you can align yourself with, and if we hit 15k (and we aim to) we’re going to expand romance stuff so it’ll be like everyone’s favorite dating sims Dragon Age and Mass Effect.
DUEL ONE: LET’S ROCK!
yooo THIS IS RAD AS HELL, look at all those awesome pinks!!
EGGSHELLS FRIDAY UPDATE!
WE ARE AT PAGE 20 WOOEOWOOEE also I am going on a small hiatus.. sorry. I AM OUT OF PAGES AND I HAD A FIRE that is my excuse.. i love you all. it is 5:30 am why i am i even awake?
Page 20 is found here!
Or start from the BEGINNING here!
sooooo i had a lil printing slip up the other day.
for my final university assignment, i had to print out a book/zine and long story short they didn’t come out 100% like i had planned them to. normally i monitor any printing stuff carefully, as i’m pretty pedantic about quality, but this time i was testing a new printer and i didn’t get to look at any proofs before i had a box of books at my door. the book features all the art tagged here, basically a culmination of my work done this year for my studies. during the printing process however, it seems my files must have had an issue because one half of the book is printed out quite badly. the comic and two most recent pieces came out alright, but all the work i had done in first semester looks shoddy (and the print shop can’t help me at this point). i’m now stuck with quite a number of copies of this and an incredibly empty wallet. here’s a picture of one of the pages that came out badly, (it’s not my camera, the image printed like this.) i’m pretty ashamed of how i let this get out of hand sigh. it sucks because most of it came out okay save for a few images…
i cannot on good conscience sell them at the price i was initially planning to for this reason! SO i am going to be trying to sell them at the reduced price of $15 (AUD) + shipping for the a5 zines to basically cover my
arsecosts. if anyone would like to buy a kinda dud copy of this to help me out, i’d really really appreciate it and mentally i am giving you a thank you smooch because thank you. i’ve learned my very expensive lesson about printing and making sure you know what you’re doing beforehand!
reiterating that THESE ARE NOT the best quality, so please please please, i don’t want anyone shelling out money for this unless they have the funds spare to give me a hand.
tl;dr: baby choo made a mistake, please help me out if you are able! and ONLY if you are able. i would never want to take money from someone who needed it very much simply because i fucked up. you can get the thing i messed up on here.
