That particular drawing is based off a series of nightmares that Emri has later on in the story. Aba and himself are the children of riva, warring families, and they've become "brothers" without their parents' knowledge. But there's a point when Emri's family begins to take moves against Aba, and Emri's actually appointed to the hunting party that's out to catch her and bring her back for execution. So he begins to have nightmares like this, about killing her, or skinning her after the hunt, etc.

There's a synopsis and character profiles here [link] under the stories section. This story in particular is called "Faust and Nywborn".

It's not a shame you spent so much time on Emri skinning Aba ~ ! It's wonderfully repulsive and horrid :heart:

What IS a shame though is that your and Coey's Faust-Nywborn story looks (from what I see of your sketches) and sounds really interesting, but is still kept private.

And shhh, just a curiosity maybeinterestingforyoutoknow comment~
Aba, she kinda reminds me of a character from a famous literacy novel here in my country.

"The Devil to Pay in the Backlands" is the name of the stuff, and the Aba-like character is 'Diadorim'

resumitive tl;dr, she's a very masculine woman and a dude falls in love with her,
but he gots a loads of grief about this making him homo (he still doesnt know shes a girl.)
Then later in teh story she dies and the dude discovers that she was a girl the whole time,
OMFG this kind of situation is sad ; A; and i just remembered about this when i read the story summary inthe first time xD

ahhshasghagsh and a last thing to stop this flooding.
i hope to you two possessive parents release the baby soon! (or gradually at least) D:<

haha yeeeaahh that is a lot like aba and emri XDD lawl, silly little things. <3

hmm well later today i hope to be getting most the other profiles done sooo if you wanna check back in tonight there will probably be all but a few done XD

oooh yes. it will be books XDD we just printed what we had at the time, which was 400 pages and just the first two years of the story-- since [like three weeks ago] then we've already done another 68 pages >____>
and that's NOT including the first 50 years, actually-- we started writing it out when aba and emri met, which is about 50 year into to whole story >____> WE HAVE NO LIVES

okayyy, well, you probably don't know anything about aba and emri because their story in itself is excruciatingly long, but essentially they are extremely close but from warring families, and emri starts to have horrible dreams about doing stuff to aba [like skinning her] once the struggle for power really starts up. because of a comment he made to another friend a while back, about how 'once my father announces that he's returned, it will be open season on the fausts'. so he begins to have nightmares about torturing and mutilating the most important person in his life because she's from the rival family.

Well, that answer's that! Aba is a She. I found myself mortally confused by her. At first I though she was a man with breasts, then I thought no. She's just a masculine woman (I understand this was the desired effect) but now I feel properly educated--about Aba as well as the "beng skinned alive" thing. Thanks!

Ah, so it's more a dream-sequence type of image than an actual occurrence in the story? People get so squeamish about darker impulses sometimes that it's always surprising getting to see it played out in stories (and then art.) Anyway, it's really nicely done. It would be really neat to get to see it finished. I love the darker stuff you do; it matches so well with the style you work in that it's almost addictive. Something about it seems very organic compared to the darker stuff many others do, which is where I find such appeal.

I've been AFK for... uh... a REALLY long time. Are you publishing stories in graphic novel form or as a text-only novel with these characters? (I'm so behind the times. :T Forgive my ignorance, sorry.) Today I got too curious and started combing through your Aphelion page and I'm delighted to have found your summary, but I'd be fascinated to see the fully fleshed story. Your book section of the store only mentions the Little White & Little Dark, but if I recall, that isn't Faust/Nywborn related, right?

Your characters have just gotten too interesting for me to resist the call to know more about them, that's all. :P Sorry if my questions are annoying and/or have been answered somewhere. I'm trying to play catch-up of nearly a year and a half with all my favourite artists, and it's been pretty overwhelming so I'm sure I'm missing a lot of the obvious.

ummm we don't plan on publishing any of the story stuff for faust-nywborn, just the images and summaries, really. we recently got the first 400 pages printed in a book just for our uses, but that's about as far as it will go with publishing.

and no, lilwhite and lildark is a completely different from FN, but there are some tings that we used in one from the other.

Seriously, next year you need to make a calendar that's entirely images like that. I will buy it in a heartbeat.
