After a week of drawing goblins, it’s time to get back into personal projects for the upcoming convention season. This drawing of a Starken is going to be included in a book I’m creating of wizards in the world of Orbis. I plan it to showcase the different races and magic that exist in Orbis. So far I have 6 drawings inked and I have to color them. This book is going to be in color unlike other zines or comics I’ve made in the past.
Starken have already had a post about them, but I’ll add some new information. This is Master Lo’grom, he is considered an oracle [able to see the future in the smoke of herbs]. The herbs are burned in a specially made caldron created by Starken metal crafters. There’s a port on the side of the caldron that a pipe can be attached to breath in the smoke as well as increase the fire. The Oracle often has an assistant to aid by collecting herbs and preparing the cauldron for predictions. It’s considered a high honor to have a personal prediction by a Starken Oracle.
