I've had a lot of creative energy lately, and with no real place to channel it, I've taken to helping people with item/room designs and customisations.
English is my second language, and I'm by no means perfect or wholly confident with I do (advice on things I'm getting wonky is welcome), so this is also a way to practice.
If you'd like me to write something for you, you can comment here or contact me in game. I'm not that great at jewellery, but you can ask anyway and I'll tell you if I feel I can't do it. Glad to do it for free, but tips are always appreciated (I'm looking to build a house for Syb, so stone would be lovely)!
Latest stola design for Syb:
a ceremonious stola in gentian blue
Pooling in a crumple of gentian blue, a muslin stola lies abandoned.
Yards of Baarian muslin dyed a vivid shade of gentian blue drape and fold over the body of the wearer, giving shape to this ceremonious stola. A row of fibulae fastens the garment at the shoulders, while thick bands of like material wind across the torso and down to the hips in thick ribbons, creating voluminous pleats and ruffles. From collarbone to ankle, the fabric falls in various sheer layers, which lends a depth of colour with each movement. Sewn across the hems and neckline, an instita of contrasting azure lifts the stola from mundane to august, where the interwoven pattern of feathers gives way to a discreet little wing.
Blissful Bites café description for @Ariettie
Murmurs of jovial conversation blend with the tinkle of crockery, echoing across the brushed redwood flooring and wall-panelling to create an inviting atmosphere. Iridescent curtains in moire gauze shroud the interior from the bustle and mayhem of the markets, while jet vases and gilded accents invariably remind patrons that they are still in Ashtan. Low counters, glass shelves, and tall cabinets display the day's offerings: from wicker trays laden with warm loaves, to ceramic tureens of soups or stews, crystalline stands for desserts, along with savoury platters stacked high with goods. A chalkboard sign lists the specials, flanked by bone plates, and linen napkin-wrapped cutlery awaiting hungry customers.
Elemental staff customisation for @Entaro
a sundered sea-worn staff
Abandoned by an elemental mariner, a sundered staff awaits a new finder.
Rent from the prow of a lagan vessel, a five foot rod of algid wood is fashioned into a grim staff. Salt-weathering and dereliction pepper the length of this weapon with minuscule fissures, which in turn host clusters of sessile husks that their organisms have long abandoned. Sundered in twain, the upper portion is burnt black, held together by taut strings of a ghost fishnet. Despite its cankerous aesthetic, the wood feels light but sturdy, reinforced by warm veins of molten bronze that weave about the etched runes.
Eagle (atavian?) wings customisation for @Cresil
; ages ago (I didn't like the dropped, but he did and that's all that matters):
vitreous wings encased in charred bone
Refracting the available light, tinted glass betrays the presence of wings.
Mantling imperiously over the shoulders, a frame of charred bone wedges resilient slivers of glass in place, giving shape to this striking pair of wings. Worked as a mosaic in the same manner of a cathedral window, each stained piece slots about its neighbour like crystal feathers; the cruel, jagged shards piercing downwards threaten to slice the careless wearer or inattentive passer-by. An unsettling sanguine pigment seeps upwards from each vitreous tip, the savage red melding with the burnt black at each quill-nib, and lending this artefact a macabre cast.
I've done a few more here and there, and if their recipients wish to share then go for it. Currently working on Gloves of Extraction and then my schedule's free, so let me know.
