The Winter Motley That Could Have Been
The Winter Motley That Could Have Been
Sketch: Posted July 17th, 2015 by Alina

This is a repost, since I originally sketched this during a Christmas break, but I figured it was especially relevant now. These are early concepts for a very different Motley idea I had – an all Winter Court Motley. Winter Court’s emotion is sorrow, and they deal with themes of loss, detachment and hiding in plain sight. In this early incarnation, Sarah was playing a haughty Fairest Draconic, Joel a Jack-Frost-esque Wizened Chatelaine, and Ravenia (who didn’t end up playing in the Changeling game after all!) a Darkling Razorhand.

I eventually dropped these ideas because a) I didn’t want Sarah to always play pretty, haughty characters and b) Ravenia’s character was a little too much like Abbie’s Vampire character, Talon. (Leather jacket and claws, much?) Joel as a Chatelaine still works, I think, and I quite like his spindly-legged design, but alas, it was not to be either. His (literally) star-crossed lover character hasn’t come up yet in the current Changeling storyline, but I can’t wait until it does. Seeing him play a more romantic character will be a big change from his usual conniving!
