Sorry, I'm too busy... by ALRadeck Sorry, I'm too busy... by ALRadeck
... to withstand the amount of DUMB in here. Inform me when this area becomes less stupid"

Next!: [link]

Faced with a powerful something or other that she can't handle herself, she gets her hosts to call the exorcists, even though he tried to kill her in the first place 3 years back at the start. (they're literally the only other 'people' she knows, Raziel and the Priest run a commercial exorcism business called "Great Beyond") So when they get there, they obviously think they've been called to just try and kill Neri off again. Angels and Demons are physically unable to talk to one another, they speak different languages. They technically speak the same, but there's restrictions in place that angels' can't understand demons because of...well...reasons. So Neri can't tell him what's going on; and inevitbly just invited more people to the fight that attack her.

Eventually Raziel starts getting the hint that maaayyybe the demon trying to abduct the small child might be the greater foe. Though by that time he's already proven himself pretty useless, and Neri still has to face something about forty times her size on her own. understandably, she's kinda pissed.

This image/ section happens in chapter 6. I'm happy you guys like these OC character story blips! The response of new readers fills me with INCREDIBLE HERCULEAN VIGOR to keep trying to get this published. It also inspired me to change my offical FA status on here from Digital Artist, to Writer. Because to be honest, that's how this whole creative train started anyways and I'd be lying to call myself anything else.

Another dumb doodle! This one was about 2.5 hours, though. I didn't realize till the end that the full size of this is 800 x 1000. AH WELL, TIS JUST A DOODLE.

She's the starter size; just through perspective she appears larger

But this size...this is actually how I imagined her much larger form much later in the story to be, when she reaches her full size.

nawh, by that time she's enormous. She starts about 7 ft tall, 15 ft long, and by the end she's some 40 ft tall.

Is the name Raziel, by any chance, derived from Izrael? I stumbled across the name while looking up information on Darksiders 2. It's one of the many different names attached to Death, which is found in almost every religion out there.

I always figured her size was exaggerated in the beginning to mirror their terror. Fear does things to your head. And the way it describes her moving around in buildings implies a much smaller creature. True there's the whole ethereal, ghostly aspect, but except for that incident with the talking toy it doesn't seem to factor in as much as it should.

In fact, on the subject of that toy they moved through a doorway. If they had been so oblivious in their excitement they would've gone through a wall, and it would've smashed against the wall instead of the doorframe.

Ugh, I have to read through this story again. I don't even remember half of what happens. I only remember that part with the toy because I found it to be hillarious at the time.

The whole thing with the toy and most of the time with Raziel, she's human, which she's actually shorter then he is, so she's about 5'2"

I'd have to read more of your story to be able to give you an accurate observation. As for the picture: both whimsy and dark. I wish I could make a better comparison. All that I can say is that I'd love to see these guys pitched against some surrealistic hellish abominations.

I'll probably make an illustration of that as well. These quickie pictures have been fantastic in garnering new attention to the book :D

That's part of what hooked me. I had seen your illustrations, but the story paints something far darker in my mind. Seeing the two together is bound to catch an eye, I think.

I hope so. These are a nice exercise in expanding the scene a little, and I have a blast doing them, even though they only take a couple hours or so each. I've got another in the works now, but I'm open to suggestions, lol

I'd need to read more to give a good suggestion. Once I get a better feel for the characters I might think of something, though from what it sounds like you're really busy.

oh silly Raziel, kill the demon getting attacked by the other demon first, then worry about the smaller demon you failed to kill years ago.

I like these little snapshots from the story, they give some nice visuals to help the reader get an idea about what everyone looks like and what's going on exactly. keep up the awesome work!
