Watching the Races

Posted Sep 30, 2022, 12:33:08 AM UTC

Kiri had always been a bit of a cheap drunk. She knew that, but it had been so long since she let loose.  And here she was, sitting on a gorgeous green platform in a floating city, with delicious drinks and a handsome man who was being nice to her.  He wasn't asking for anything much - just a visit and a chance to apologize for ruining her shirt earlier.  Of course, Kiri didn't have the heart to tell him that it had been her only shirt and she'd been repairing it and washing it in rivers for the last 9 years.  Besides - now she had two shirts!  One was stained, that's all.

As they talked, and the day went on, Kiri found she wasn't even paying attention to the ships zooming past above her, counting laps and setting record times. She had someone to talk to - someone to laugh with.  Maybe this world would be a little different.  Maybe she wouldn't be alone for the duration of her visit.  Maybe - just maybe- she would have a friend.


Prompt #2 - The Races

Never a day goes by when there aren’t a plethora of airship races scheduled. The ships scream across the sky at incredible speeds, boosted by magic and technology intertwined. Some of the more dangerous races take place in the clouds, down among the jagged rock formations of the uninhabitable earth below. Maybe you could try your hand and win a few gold coins? Depict your character participating in or watching a race. Your submission must include your character and racing ships.

    I already effused on this over discord, but seeing it slightly larger I am so very amused by Kiri's flushed face. Oh dear, Kiri, do not let that man be a gauge of how much to drink. He drinks like a fish.

    I love their relaxed posture and how happy they look

      Kiri is a lightweight. It’s even part of her origin story. 😝
      But it’s ok. She is having a great time! Merry and her are very cute together

      They're pretty adorable. If Kiri weren't already taken in my head canon she might have another suitor.

        She's allowed to have handsome friends that are male <3 I'm sure Merian could do with as many of them as he can get XD

    The premise is really sweet and the art is so lovely!! The characters look amazing and the background really shines. The distance of the city and the atmospheric gradient of the sky are so cool. Bounce
    aaaa amazing job as always! Heart

      Wow, you are so kind! Thank you very much indeed. I don't usually get to draw happy characters, so this was a nice treat.
