Plans for 2019 – Art and More!

Hello, readers!

Xingqun here. Sorry for the radio silence after the Shen Mingzhi short story.

Taki and I have been busy writing for the Legacies antholozine and dealing with work. While the main story has ended, we have been thinking about writing about the battle at Dong Ying and what happened in the city while the Huizhong and Chunfeng were on their quest. In addition, we are thinking of writing a few short stories about some characters if anyone is interested. *crickets*

If you have not noticed, there is a new banner featuring Zhang Huiliang and some snowdrop flowers. In the language of flowers, a snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) represents purity, hope, rebirth, or consolation. All of which fit Zhang Huiliang’s character. Her name means “wise and good.” You can find the full piece in the Gallery.

I plan on completing more character portraits with their respective flowers. Taki, in the meantime, is working on her short story about the Baoxing incident.

Stay tuned!

Concept Art of Xuan An, the warrior girl and disciple of Ren-shifu (2018)

Xuan An is a friend of Zhang Huizhong and a disciple of Ren-shifu. She wields two hook swords skillfully in battle. She acts like a “protective big sister,” especially among little kids. Her backstory may be revealed in the future, if there is any interest.
