Black Goldstone

by Aexxys
Descended from gods, yet invisible to the "real" world. Such a side-effect on immortals can make them impatient to rule again. Powerful or not, though, there are some that never deserved a position of leadership at all...

Used to be drawn traditionally (black and white). Currently redrawing all old pages digitally for the sake of better art.
Rated PG for violence/blood and a brief instance of smoking.
Contains furries, magic, complaints about dead markers, and a lot of birds.

Digital Goldstone
Blue goldstone? Green goldstone? Heck, put some regular Goldstone in there while you're at it. We're going full-color and digital. 8D

Yeah. Hiatus took longer than expected. I've had the new laptop for a while, but I just... couldn't bring myself to keep updating BGS. I didn't like the art. I had wanted to do this all traditional, partially as a challenge to myself, but I can't trust my scanner with most mediums, so... well. XD The lack of good art was really bothering me, so I finally decided that I should stop fighting with myself and switch over to digital.

I'm actually going to go back and revamp every page before I continue with the story. I already have page 1 redone - I'll be replacing its image as soon as I get done typing this, even. So, yeah. (:

Hopefully, this'll help with a lot of things. XD;
Two things.
1. Sorry for the random hiatus. I usually don't post these on the day after, either, but I'm heading off for a bit and wouldn't be able to backlog the update for Saturday unless I scanned it now, so hey, why not?

2. Hey look, pencils! Wanted to do this scene in extra detail, so I did it like that. However, I decided that since it scanned pretty well (on my computer, at least, please tell me if it's really light on yours) that I might start adding shading to the comic, come chapter 4. Which will start in a few pages. So yeah. (:

Watersplosion
And that's pretty much the only thing to say about this. 8D;

Viles, stop being so happy about this. It's rather creepy.
Hjrn
Hey, look, sirenwolves crowding in the background. And they're making weird sounds!

"Hjrn" is the most basic sirenwolf noise. It's either used as a random sound or a hello, with slight variations in pronunciation ("Hooern", "Hiern", etc.) to signal that they're speaking to someone in particular - sort of a replacement for names.

Its actual sound has been described as a high-pitched dog whine by some of my friends. The spelling is rather misleading. Imagine the j is silent and that all sirenwolves have incredibly high voices if it bothers you.

Why did I put so much thought into this XD HJRN.
Sirenwolves!
Hey, look, more sirenwolves. These guys were in another story of mine, just so you know. ...The short-furred one who doesn't get called by name is Meris. (:

So, yeah. Trying to remember to add detail to backgrounds... Oh, right, the shadows. I didn't draw shadows before because Auric Masses don't have shadows. ._.; I never... actually found a way to put that in the dialogue. Viles has a shadow because the sirenwolves see him as one of them and therefore expect him to.

Oh, also, I have the next three pages inked already. Page 59 will not be inked. >_> <_< And it's... probably 90% done? Or something? I dunno.
Back to reality
Hey, guys, look, I got an update up on the right day! 8D Oh, and guess what else? I have the majority of this chapter sketched out! Just gotta make sure to ink them before the updates, heh. But yeah. This chapter's looking a bit longer than the last ones. I guess it's because I'm actually trying to get stuff to happen now that I don't need to pump exposition out all the time. Woo.
There are no backgrounds in the dream world.
Wow, my panel walls are really getting lazy. ._O Sorry about that. I didn't quite notice until now.
Wow, this place has like... no background. Sorry about that. o_o We might see more of the island by next Wednesday if it bothers you.

Anyways, this is Mako. His hand is fun to draw. XD He's based on a shark and a snake, by the way, and those things on his cheeks are poison sacs.

Rapture's mouth was fun to draw in the second panel. ...And I apologize for the wonky panel walls. Didn't notice that until right now. ._O
Aaaaah
Sorry about the sudden break. o_o

I'd make an excuse, but even I'm tired of my own nonsense. Look, even Corbae is:

(The jackalope thing in the doodle is my fursona. Just to clarify. XD)
Oh hey, fifty pages.
When did this happen? ._O
Mysterious Aquatic Figure
I'm going to be completely honest here - I hadn't planned to introduce the character over on the right side in this chapter. I hadn't actually planned much of this chapter past "Corbae and Rapture go to the island and get hit a lot by Viles". However, I rather like how the introduction of this character will take this chapter. So I'm really glad that I couldn't come up with a better idea once I realized I had an ugly blank box next to a bleeding Rapture. ._O
Just for clarification...
Yes, Rapture is trying to absorb the energy from her own blood back into her body.

Yes, this does mean that she is essentially trying to eat herself to regain energy.

Yes, the water is a jerk.

Sorry about all the blood.
I kinda like drawing the stuff.
I like drawing sirenwolves.
Mmyes. Yeah, that's what this guy is. A 'sirenwolf'. Technically not a siren or a wolf, but the first traveler to see one (read: shipwreck onto the island and then die of thirst) called them 'siren werewolves' and the name stuck.

This part of the chapter may or may not wind up becoming a stealth crossover of some sort with my most recent NaNoWriMo story. If you've got a lot of time and want to read it, I have it over here: http://eclipsejackalope.bravehost.com/writing/lighthousesandbeachfires/main.html
I like the way you're drawing animals <3 shall watch this*_*
I don't know what to say here.
I think it's the marker fumes piling up in my brain. Usually I have something to ramble about. Uhhhhh...

Oh, yeah. Rapture is fun to draw with all sorts of silly faces. I should draw her being expressive sometime.
Take that, procrastination!
Holy sharks, yes. I finally updated on time. 8F

Also, you know how I was complaining about my brush pens dying, so I'd have to color Corbae with a prismacolor marker?

My prismacolor marker is dying.

CORBAE WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME
Meh, meh meh.
Sorry for taking such a long hiatus. Been dealing with a lot of stuff (and the scanner is getting hard to get to. You would not believe the facepalming I went through to plug my laptop in, and this is because we /cleaned/. XD)

Anyways, I bought a new brush pen, and if I haven't lost it, I should be able to stop complaining about my old dry pens of woe. 8F I'll probably keep coloring Corbae in with a large black marker, though. It'll keep me from complaining for longer.
Merry Christmas
Or, well, whatever you celebrate. It's just that this page was scheduled for the 25th. 8F I sorta prefer Yule, myself, but the rest of the family celebrates Christmas, so I can't be all "OH NOPE I ALREADY HAD MY HOLIDAY I'MMA GO BE A HERMIT, GUYS."

Anyways, I have the next... three? Pages sketched/in progress and most of the chapter (and some of the next chapters) planned, but... well, it's been a rough December. January's coming up, and I usually have some flashbacks then... so, please forgive me if I miss a few more updates.
