Thought I’d do something a little different for today’s post. I recently got a graphics tablet and have been having great fun playing around with it.
I was inspired to draw a younger, care free version of Cosmas, who is a character from Prophecy of Stones.
Cosmas was one of my favourite characters to write, along with her bond mate Otto. There’s something really gentle but at the same time strong about her.
“Will you not join us in celebration?” the man asked, spreading an arm behind him to gesture at the joyful crowd. “Will you dance?”
“Does she look like a woman who dances? Really?” Sindrin scoffed, leaning close to the man and jerking a thumb in Milana’s direction. She shot him a glare and put a hand on her hip. He took an instant step back, raising his hands before him in mock innocence.
“We will join you.” Cosmas’ soft voice flowed from Milana’s side, and she flicked her glance to her.
“Cosmas, we can’t-”
“Oh, come Milana, just for a moment,” Cosmas interrupted. She tugged Otto towards the crowd, the two of them spinning around, their laughter merging with the music that drifted over the area. Otto jigged on the spot whilst Cosmas’ agile, fluid moves made her the envy of the other dancers as she swirled and dipped with graceful ease around her bond mate.
If you’d like to find out more about Cosmas, why not check out Prophecy of Stones?
Prophecy of Stones
The bond of love can conquer all, but only if it is accepted.
Prophecy states that three champions imbued with the best virtues of the mortal race: heart, strength and soul, will be the ones to save them all from an enemy which threatens to steal the life from their world and those who live upon it.
These three, along with their scribe, his bond mate, and an overly sarcastic oracle, must set off on a journey which will take them through forest, city, swamp and mountain. On this quest they activate the magical stones which charge the only weapon powerful enough to defeat Tildar and his cult of Dwell.
Yet the closer they draw to journey’s end, the more it seems that it is not the evil which will be their downfall, but the fear of a champion unwilling to accept the bond of their destiny.
Prophecy of Stones is a tale of adventure, love and magic.

This is awesome! 😀 Cosmas was one of my favourite characters in Prophecy of Stones and it’s really cool to see the writer’s own vision of her.
Thank you so much! 😀 She was definitely one of my faves, it’s interesting how side characters can always draw more interest sometimes!
Reblogged this on theowlladyblog.
Love your skills – you’re so multitalented. Cosmas is even more beautiful than I imagined her.
I’m glad you like her 😀 She was great fun to write and to draw!
That looks really cool. Awesome graphic skills you have there.
Thank you so much! Switching from pen and paper to graphics tablet has been odd, think it will take me some time to get used to it 😀
Beautiful artwork, Mishka – it really is stunning 🙂
Thank you so much! 😀 It’s nice to get a character out of my head and onto paper (screen?) once in a while.
The freckles really make the picture for me.
Yeah, I do love the freckles, I always imagined her with them, so she just had to have them 😀
You are very talented in visual art. Love the graphic!!!
Thank you so much 😀 It was one of my first pics switching over from pen and paper to graphics tablet, so I’m still learning!
You are a very talented lady!
Thank you so much! 😀
Love the drawing! You’re very talented. The story sounds like fun, too. And, one of these days I’m going to work on a youtube video for my novel. One.of.these.days. 😀
