Greetings from Riverrise by Artoveli Greetings from Riverrise by Artoveli
Edge Chronicles fanart, what a surprise!

Apparently the best way to get to Riverrise (the legendary place which several characters have spent an awful lot of time trying to find) is by sky-firing. Much of the wood in The Edge Chronicles is buoyant when burned, so sky-firing is the Sky Pirate version of walking the plank. You're tied to a log of buoyant wood which is then set ablaze, sending you blasting off into open sky. Anyway... So I decided to give it a try, and now here I am in Riverrise! Riverrise is also the place where we fans have taken to sending all the characters in the series whom we refuse to believe are dead. There are eight people here now: Maugin, Woodfish, Goom, Twig (all youngified thanks to the water), Cloudwolf (similarly youngified), Varris Lodd, myself, and Lol Olo the Gnockgoblin that was sent after me. Lol Olo has since joined on as my secretary.

Never attempt to draw a Banderbear without a reference! *sigh*

Quint (Cloud Wolf) is mistrustful of the burning log still strapped to my back. I've no idea why.

Oh, the burning log is so awful! :tears: Man, this is a really beautiful thought. But how should Varis get there??

Oh, I think Varis just landed there when she went down. :nod:

How high did she fly then? I mean, you know the big map in the "Immortals", Riverrise is really far away from the Free Glades! And if she was really hit by a goblin's projectile and crashed down, she would never reach the goal. This is science. But we do art! So: I love it anyway!

Oh, I didn't misspell it anywhere, did I? Or are you actually asking about the place? If so, it's pretty much explained in the description.:nod:

Varis is definatly in Riverrise. I shall ignore all evidence to the contrary, and pretend that anyone who says she is dead is invisible.
La la la la la, I'm not listening...

Ah, don't tell me! I haven't read the last one yet, 'cause it doesn't come here in the US until this September, as far as I can tell. I could get it from Amazon, like I did the Lost Barkscrolls, but I haven't yet, for some unknown reason.

Blah, the American publishers are so stupid. :(

I can't wait for September...

Well, I've been patient this long, I can wait a while longer...sigh.

Actually, I'm still waiting semi-patiently for the next Abarat book, and the last one came out six years ago. This saddens me.
Have you read Abarat? Awesome series, even if there's only two out of five books out at the moment.

You should read it, it's awesome.
And, actually, the villain is very Erik-ish at times. There's this whole background thing that's rather reminicent of Phantom of the Opera, in a way.

Ahem... sorry bout that... rant over... Anywho, this is really great! You captured the characters really well, and I LOVE how you drew the young Cloud Wolf!
