Eithalica Quadruple Planet
Niavai the Yalengem

Soon to be an epic graphic novel …

On Eithalica, time sleeps beneath a sky of tree-leaves, and men of strange tongue walk with Yalengem, a race of luminescent sages.

Neither squire Lorkan nor his Yalengem friend, Niavai, know how to restore peace to their war-torn kingdom, or calm the ailed groaning of the forest. But Niavai is sure the long lost Chetnum Empire knew—by warding off the spirits lurking in the shadows.

When the spirits rise to snare Eithalica in living nightmares, Lorkan resolves to follow Niavai and recover the ancient knowledge. But their search becomes a pathless suffering in enemy lands on a distant moon; a titanic strain on Lorkan’s will, and on his faith in Yalengem.

    #EithalicaMicroblog My dad once told me that I was missing the forest for the bugs on the bark on the trees.

    That’s my tendency in everything, and I have to be careful not to do it even with Eithalica—my safe place where details are king. Even here, there’s a big picture to see.

    #EithalicaMicroblog 3D Lorkan puppet finished. Which one should I do next?
    - Niavai
    - Lilkeron
    - Kiwigans (horselike reptiles)

    All further humanoid puppets will be more rough-hewn to save time.

    #EithalicaMicroblog I just added a few extra details to the #Blender3D mesh for Eviuna (shoulder blades, ulna / corner of wrist, crease of spine on back).

    Now I’m actively working on the mesh for Lorkan. I have body, head, arms, legs; still need hands, feet, face.

    #EithalicaMicroblog Massive life changes are settling down. Going to resume work on Eithalica soon.

    It’s still a bit premature for this, but I did recently draft some notes on a teaser trailer for the graphic novel.

    Do they make trailers for graphic novels? Well, I’m gonna.
