truth by artastrophe truth by artastrophe
my Baldur's Gate bard/sorcerer Sajantha, who it would take pages and pages to sufficiently describe... which I'm in the process of doing. xD www.fanfiction.net/s/9374269/1… (someday I will finish her fic, I swear! it's just so much easier more fun to draw her. ^_^; )

[6.30: updated version!] you can check out my process/guide/thing for it here artastrophe.deviantart.com/art… ~
:truth: process by artastrophe

since this, I've grown up some
different kind of fighter
and when the darkness comes, let it inside you
your darkness is shining
my darkness is shining
have faith in myself
truth

Yesss... blame me... *strolls towards fanfiction.net*

But I'm curious, why did you choose 'truth' as the title of your pic?

"Truth" is the name of the song that I posted lyrics from (it totally fits her story and I just love it, besides xD). The majority of her struggle in SoA is of coming to terms with and accepting the truth of her heritage; she pretty much exists in denial for the most part and has spent the whole time trying to escape reality in a lot of different levels... and this picture is showing her after she's begun to accept things and figured herself out, and become a stronger person for it. I suppose it's kind of a predictable character arc, since we couldn't expect her to remain quite so insecure and ineffectual forever. ;D

(also I don't have any actual updates on ff.net yet hahaha... although I have twiddled a bit with the earlier chapters, so I suppose I could upload the newer versions of those. I'm kinda stuck on the order of everything else right now, so I can't decide what happens directly next so I can't post a new chapter til I have it figured out. But I actually am working on it!! xDD)

For Jesus' sake, stop tweaking earlier chapters and give us the new ones. What I meant to say, ahem, carry on, my good friend... :meow:

lol!! yeah, sorry. It's just because I like foreshadowing but I didn't figure out where the story was going until after I had started it, so I had to add in tiny things! Plus I feel like I'm getting better at writing and wanted to go back and tidy some stuff up. Honestly if I had the time I'd just start all over from scratch, but yeah--in the interest of providing legitimately new chapters, I've decided not to. x3 as always, thank you for your support!!! ^^ <3

you know what, I can just send you a pdf or something with the latest version if you really want to read it right away hehe... I still haven't posted the new one on ffnet (it's just sitting on my computer :3) and I've got to get ready for work or I would just upload it for ya right now.

the one that's on there is changed from the original version, but it's got to be like, four months old at least, Idk lol... otherwise just wait a couple days and I'll put a 'tweaked' version up. ;D

Dun worry, I've my own unfinished fics on my hard, which I can't post but I'd rather go with the first choice, arta.

thank you!! ^^ and you know, I really have to thank you so, so much for getting me to work without references... you honestly don't even know how much more fun it's been, and I don't know if I would have ever tried it if you hadn't inspired me!! :heart: :glomp:
