Viturhimin and Pana turned towards the direction of the voice, as Chawinda quickly leveled her bracers in the same direction. “Who’s there? Show yourself,” shouted the bodyguard. With her Darkvision, she could see that a doorway existed about eighty feet away.
A soft laugh echoed from the portal, as a figure stepped into the room, followed by a dozen armored warriors. They made little noise as they moved, their armor silenced using cloth wrappings. Silhouetted in the doorway as they entered, their outlines betrayed that they were Drow.
Welcome back, Avatar Viturhimin. Should you not be on your flying city?” The speaker stepped closer until Pana could see her. She was beautiful, with a complexion of onyx, her eyes garnet, her lips amethyst. Easily six foot, she was the tallest person in the room. Impossibly slender in her revealing dress of gold thread, she wore a necklace of g

Pana and Chawinda stepped out of the coach’s doorway to a fantastic sight. An ornate entrance guarded by several Drow warriors and priestesses stood nearby, on a gigantic dome made of solid looking grey stone. A series of flying buttresses extended from the periphery of the great dome, but they went from ground level upwards to meet towers that were tilted towards the dome. The stone towers were carved like giant Drow warriors in armor holding their arms up as if supporting the buttresses. Above the entrance, there appeared to be a cluster of large bubble windows, two larger than the rest, emitting a dim red light. The effect of the whole was to look like a stylized Brobdingnagian spider.
All around the entrance were throngs of Drow from the various clans, all awaiting their turn to enter. The foggy overcast above was well lit in various rainbow hues, with red-orange predominating. This reflected enough ligh

Bad Blood Runs Black - chapter 47 part 1 of 4 by John "Basileus Ioannis"
The sun had set in the west. The cumulus and stratus clouds at a lower altitude turned a deep grey, the ocean below now nearly black. The medium altitude altostratus were a deepening shade of mauve, while wispy cirrus above still shone silvery, increasingly turning ashen to the east.
Suddenly the top of a mass of clouds swirled and parted, as a dark metallic pole jutted up through the vortex, knifing its way through the night sky at tremendous speed. Following the mast, a large rectangular glassy enclosure came into view, a faint greenish light spilling out from the windows. Supporting the structure was a long black neck of stone, as the clouds continued to part way.
Vatishehir cleared the cloud layer, the magic paddle wheels having been stowed. The brick shaped remnants of the ship-city continued rising while picking up speed. Aboard, thousands of High Elves were busying themselves, preparing for combat. Only the

Vatishehir had reached fifty thousand feet altitude and was cruising at just under the speed of sound. Mundhelm was able to reestablish contact with the capital, allowing a more complete exchange of information. The consul was finishing his report into the crystal set. “Therefore, considering that they departed with speed directly towards the east, I feared they were targeting the Ciulthann.
I see,” replied Slesk, the Grand Vizier (writer’s note: from chapter 38, q.v.). “Thank you for your timely notice, Serrasqer Bashal. We have Owl patrols out, I am told up to five hundred kilometers, and we have informed them to use their night vision and ears to detect any sign of the Quzayshehir. So far, we have not detected hide nor hair of them.

Cyberpunk Akumu'keshi Dutan'vir
A 15-minute Challenge on last Saturday's Drowtales Picarto stream, ended up going a bit overtime ^^;  Theme was Cyberpunk, and that's my OC Akumu'keshi Dutan'vir (cameo on Drowtales.com), her clan symbolized by the stag mark on her hat. She's a mixed blood Drowussu (light grey Drow), so being part cyborg kinda comes naturally. Gotta work on that hair, I'm drawing freehand using MS Paint (one layer) and I used the flat brush over and over to get the silvery effect, but it needs work. Also forgot to shade her face, and the ear shading probably needs work too. Maybe could have added more applique details to make her look more "cyber", and an appropriate background

Chawinda by SoulCode (sorenshadow)
:icontuzkiyesplz: I won another Giveaway on Drowtales 12/09/2017 livestream on Picarto :hooray: this time :iconsorenshadow:'s rendition of Chawinda the epic drow rogue. After recovering from the initial nosebleed :faint: I was impressed by SoulCode's talent with crisp, sharp lines, and man those curves :shocked: Chawinda never looked so...wow...I'm sure Pana would most definitely approveFlirtatiousThank you so much, Code :worship::woohoo::squee:
btw check out :iconsorenshadow:'s webcomics (RS47 features his badass OC, Reka, as a human...she's also a drow drawn by Kern in Drowtales)

If you're a fan of Drowtales webcomic, then check out their Saturday livestreams on Picarto (2PM-6PM Eastern), and at the end of the stream you too might win a giveaway from one of the talented artists! Usually :icondrowtales: and :iconchocolate-rebel: will multistream up to four artists, and you can talk with them via chat. Better yet, commission Kern and he might draw it live during the stream, and he'll ask you how you want it. Meet like-minded fans of the Drowtales webcomic in chat, on the Drowtales.com forum, or on Discord (see Drowtales.com for a link to the Discord account). Also, Monday through Friday, Kern and Kite host a Twitch stream (art on M/W/F, gaming on T/Th) around 3PM-5PM Eastern (these are recorded, if you can't make it in time). Incredible level of access to artists, fun games, generous giveaways you can win. Oh yeah, and a kickass webcomic with up to 5 updates a week (even chibi comedy outtakes). You can't go wrong :thumbsup::D

Sybille by Blacksanz
Blacksanz drew a lineart chibi of my dastardly arch-antagonist Sybille von Pippenstock (sorry I don't have BlackSanz's dA account ID to link), a giveaway I won on the 9/23/2017 Drowtales livestream on Picarto :D Sanz really got Sybille's characteristics down, the hint of a smirk, the cold calculating eyes, her long hair pulled up in a bun. She's an intimidating character, tall and beautiful, and did I mention she was one of the most powerful wizards of Hannetzbirg, if not the whole Bad Blood Runs Black world? :empllama:

Check out :icondrowtales:'s epic webcomic Drowtales, running for over 16 years and currently up to chapter 52. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, :icondrowtales: and :iconchocolate-rebel: run a Twitch stream starting around 3:00pm Eastern. On Saturday at 2:00pm Eastern, there is the 5-hour Picarto livestream with :icondrowtales:, :iconchocolate-rebel:, and a guest artist or two for a multi-stream, with an art giveaway lottery held at around 6:00pm Eastern. On top of that, the artists tend to be on Discord almost daily, you can chat them up or talk to other fans of the Drowtales webcomic :w00t:

Pana Von Jettingen
I was thinking about Inktober, where you draw a picture a day for the whole month of October. but I don't think I can keep this up, so here is my rendition of Pana from Chapter 3, mouse drawn using MS Paint. She's wearing her linen dress and silk shoes, Vicama on her hip, and a cloak over her shoulders (cloak might have been worn at night, but oh well)
