The pictures of Caleb you did came out really cool! Though I thought for some reason his antlers were bigger. Oh well.

I’m just really bad with antlers. In his very first design, I made them small horns for ease of drawing, then bit the bullet and made them look more like proper antlers.

Oh yeah OK. I can see why you would do that. Makes sense. Never mind then. Was just a bit curious about why they seemed smaller.

Hmm, Chinese water deer. Don't see those very often.

I just REALLY wanted an excuse to give a Jackelope long fangs, so that was why I looked to those deer. :D

Starting a new month of prompts, this one being called, “Darktober.”

Darktober Day 1 - Nightmare

“Macabre doesn’t know this, but I still have dreams of when we were forced to fight each other when he was possessed by a much stronger demon. I can’t imagine what Macabre went through, being fully aware of what was happening, but I was forced to experience fighting someone I loved who was being used as a puppet. I’ll be forever grateful that I was able to free him with no lasting damage and even managed to seal away this demon, but I just wish I could get these memories out of my head.

It was my fault it happened in the first place.”

Darktober Day 2 - Wary

“So I am VERY well aware that my threats to eat people who get under my skin gets me a sort of reputation, so many get cautious whenever I mention food, but frankly, I’m not too worried about it. It does keep the right people away, and everyone else manages to get to know me to the point that they realize that it’s usually a bluff.

Keyword here being ’usually’. Don’t test me, there’s a lot of loopholes to this rule I’m willing and able to use.”

I take it that the loophole is usually used on Sickle? :lol: I honestly don't get why he keeps on pressing his luck. Sucker for pain perhaps? :?

Hey everyone, here’s some concept art for my comic series. This is a mother and (adopted) daughter duo. Much like in housepets, animals can converse with humans and can take human-like roles in society. Many are expected to go to school and get a job. They also live similar lifespans as humans, so Ishbel is still fairly young, even though a real cat would be ancient at age 18.

Darktober Day 3 - Paranoia

“Oh, Lulay, what would things be like without you?

A heck of a lot more pleasant to start. Even before Macabre showed up in Heaven, she’s been insufferable. Once Macabre showed up, as a puppy, mind you, she was convinced that Hell was trying to infiltrate Heaven. Thankfully, at this point most know that Lulay is being paranoid about Macabre, Aria, Vex, and Oliver.

I think she’s also really upset that Aria is a more popular singer than she is.”

Well, Sickle is of the mindset that there’s no fun if there’s no risk. His ratio of escaping to being punished by Mirage still leans heavily in his favor. He’ll worry about it if it starts to tip to the other side. Also, avoid prancing Oliver. Might count as an immediate, “no mercy.”
As for her “rules,” it’s about how she engages with mortals.
  • No hunting of sapient mortal beings unless also living a mortal lifetime, as this also leads to unauthorized soul-binding.
  • No predation of any lagomorph species. (Personal rule of Mirage’s, as since she’s a hare, she doesn’t like the idea of preying on other hares or even rabbits. She’ll tolerate a lot to her reputation, cannibalism ain’t one of them)
List of exceptions Mirage is willing to make;
  • Sickle isn’t mortal and isn’t in charge of anything deemed “important”
  • Harriet is only a shard of a soul, thus not falling under typical soul-binding rules unless she’s reconstituted
  • Harriet is technically a human

Thanks! And yup, Lulay so far has no redeeming qualities. She’s basically Lilith but more charismatic and less psycho.

Anywho, new piece.

Darktober Day 4 - Research

“After finally coming to feel some sympathy for Harriet, I did what I could to point her in the right direction of breaking her curse, with Macabre, Vex, and even Nikolai doing whatever they could. The first step was tracking down a copy of the tome Harriet originally found the killing curse in, and now we have to dig as deep as we can to find counters by cross-referencing the style of curse to similar ones. Took a long while before a path that involved very specific runes showed itself, but I fear that there’s still a long way to go. Until then, we’ll have to keep vigilant for whenever Harriet gets another summon to keep as much blood as possible from being spilled.”

Darktober Day 5 - Breakdown

Darktober Day 6 - Obsession

“So weird thing, Harriet used to have a major crush on Nikolai. Pretty sure it was because for a very long time, no one but him would even bother to give Harriet the time of day. Thing is, he made a lot of things clear to her; there is no attraction, he’s only into other guys, and he only viewed her as useful for acquiring materials for his necromancy. I think the reason Harriet clung to him for so long was that she was that lonely. You don’t garner friends doing what she’s forced to do. It was only after Nikolai was committed to Trevor did she finally give up this crush. We were all initially worried she’d retaliate against Trevor, since he’s a mortal, but apparently she only wished them the best and gave Trevor one of her knives as a gift.
Vex would realize her predicament and offer to help search for a curse breaker, and a much more healthy love developed between the two during said search.”

Darktober Day 7 - Caged

“Ollie was definitely a slippery little Devil when he was younger. Arin found that keeping him in a pouch helped a lot, as Ollie seemed to have fun with that, but we had to figure something out when Arin wasn’t around. We knew that Oliver liked the hugs Macabre would sometimes give him with his external ribs, so we gave it a shot. Worked wonders, but it was immediately clear that Ollie only liked this when it was on his terms. Still, pretty cute to see!”

Those ribs are pretty strong, so they’d still work on an older Ollie. In fact, the ribs are strong enough to hold Harriet back if she’s summoned. Speaking of which-

I do wonder how she would react if her summons ended up being not for killing somebody but for something else. Nice job with the colors!

No doubt she’d love that. If only the summons she’s tied to wasn’t explicitly a killing curse.

Darktober Day 9 - Dark Story

“After Ermina and I patched things up with Macabre after trying to push him into sharing more of his past, Macabre said we at least deserved to know why he was hesitant to bring it up. My dad was carefree, my mom was kind of strict, but it was never questioned that they loved me. Macabre didn’t even get that from his parents. He told us of the neglect and abusive words he endured, mostly from his mother. I never would have imagined, seeing how he was with Arin, his adoptive dad. I still feel bad, I always have this feeling that we brought up something he wasn’t ready to bring up.

He still didn’t tell us everything. It took a demon who showed resentment for him for us to learn that Macabre was at one time nobility.”
