Bethesda Ellet, Character Story


No Comments

Hello all!

As I’m planning my first art piece of the new year, I decided to go back through my old unpublished or finished writings. Last year, I did a character flashback series in which I recreated original characters of my old ideas, and Bethesda Ellet was one of them. I created her first in 2014 and then again in 2017.

When I first thought of her, I was in middle school and wished to write a story about me and my friends as supersoldiers. Hence, I developed Bethesda. She is a character that I enjoy drawing because of her luscious hair and strong, confident attitude.

She was a leader of a team of eight. The story was set in a dystopian future. This is as far as I got with the development of this story. I should revisit it in the near future. I do plan, however, to change her name. I’m thinking Saphira; her last name is up for grabs at the moment. I enjoy drawing this character a lot and may one day give her a proper debut.

Anyway, attached to this post is a sample of what she used to be, a chapter written in the point of view of Bethesda from 2014. I made some grammatical changes but I kept most of the writing as is. Read it for yourselves and leave a comment if you’d wish to tell me what you think? 🙂

Enjoy!

(Warning, it is a little long and there is some profanity. Bethesda and her teammates have sharp tongues.)

2017 Reflection


No Comments

Hi, fellow followers! Don’t worry, I’ll keep this short! 🙂

It’s the end of a productive year and as the days number down, I find myself reflecting on the work I’ve done and where I want to go from here. Although I really want to announce my latest ideas here and now, I’m not going to. I have quite a few new ideas and a new vision for this platform I call SketchiStudios but I’m not going to make a new years resolution list and list it out for you–no–I’m just going to dive on into the chaos and see where it takes me. I can’t wait to get started and share it with you all. So for now, have a Happy New Year and see you all in 2018!

Oh, and before I forget, feedback is greatly appreciated anywhere, whether on my social media, a quick email through my site, or in any comments section or direct message. If you have things you want to see from me in the new year or what to give a shout out? Let me know! Contact me, leave a comment! I want to hear from you.
