Hello, everyone. I'm Skyleap. I tend to draw a lot of dragons; mainly traditional art but you'll notice that I try a wide range of art genres and styles.

--general fandomness:


hello pen pressure.

It's very small (6.0 x 3.7 active area) but I like it a lot!
So I'm not...entirely a fan of dA's community, aside from the couple friends I know are lying around somewhere. Tumblr's easier for me to work with; despite having been on dA longer, I understand tumblr's layout and coding and stuff better than I do deviantArt's. So I was thinking I might move most of my art activity over to tumblr, including Auran pages.

But I want some feedback from those aforementioned random friends lying around:

-should I keep posting Auran pages here, at least, for you guys' sake if you don't want to follow the tumblr/don't have a tumblr? if not, cool, just say the word.
-i would still be hanging around dA to keep an eye on some of my favorite artists and talk to people + participate in any fun activities going around.

The new Auran tumblr blog has a theme equipped called "Simple Webcomic Theme," which is Exactly What It Says On The Tin. Once I start posting comic pages to it, you'll be able to easily click through with pretty "first, previous, next, last" buttons. Tumblr also lets me set up a separate About and Characters page, and I can answer anonymous questions through my regular art/sketch blog. The comic is still just a "for-fun" side project, of course, which is why it's sticking to tumblr and not, say, an actual website.

Anyway, here's the blogs you should go check out to see future comic pages and ask questions about the Auran world:

auran-comic -- the actual comic, with About and Characters pages set up as of right now [no actual comic pages have been posted to it yet]
mort-draws -- ask questions about Auran and company, and I'll answer with a little sketch! Even if you don't have a tumblr/prefer not to attach the question to your account, you can still ask anonymous questions. Also where I'll be posting notices about comic updates, as well as most of the rest of my artwork.

It's been 84 years...

One day I will have access to a scanner. One day, but it is not this day. Anyway, I've been looking forward to posting this page for a while now, since you get your first look at Conozco's big redesign. He's a lot bigger than Auran, and I changed the way his horns attached to his face. Still wearing those for-decoration-only tiny glasses. Plus there's the first real dialogue between characters!

Personally, my favorite part of the entire comic (so far) is Auran's "oh shit" face. I loved it in the practice pages, and I love it on this page too.
Angels bowling

I always liked that idea
As if Heaven were some giant bowling alley
As if, above the dark clouds,
Lane upon lane of elegant wood stretched
Out into nothingness
And people dressed in white and swan’s wings
Wandered and bowled,
As if their dreams never contained anything else.
I could hear it, some nights,
The growling in the sky
A peaceful, lengthy rumble fading into the distance
It is then that I remember:

A bowling alley, a birthday party,
Where I first noticed and talked with
A friend
We mimicked the simple Heaven of a child’s mind
Gentle rolling thunderstorms
Angels bowling.

But there is no sweet metaphor
To name the other kind of thunder
That sets my heart racing
Breathing fast
Or not at all
That brilliant


of light
That strikes at the same time
As the sound of the air splitting apart
A display of raw power
I remember:

An abandoned campout, running in the dark
Back to safety, fleeing from the war in Heaven
With that same friend
For a moment we both stood in the wind and the rain
Threw our heads back
And looked up.
Ode to a Thunderstorm
From my final portfolio for my freshman Intro to Creative Writing class.
