Fate Saga is a fantastical, action/drama animated series about fate and free will, and follows Cain, a knight who can see the future. With only glimpses of prophecies to guide him, Cain interferes in natural disasters and war in hopes of stopping his tragic visions from happening.

However, in a world on the brink of an apocalypse, is knowing the final outcome enough to change it?

Fate Saga is an original animated action/drama series taking place in a fantastical world based on Medieval Europe.

Busy Times Ahead!

 This adorable little frolicking Lukas is courtesy of the amazing Jay Miller, from the OC Art-XChange group's June entry.  The topic was "Chibi" and boy did he make Fate Saga's eccentric scientist absolutely adorable!!

Hi everyone!  I wanted to give you the heads up that things have been pretty busy this past month, and are going to be even busier here for the next few weeks.  School is starting, and this semester I will be teaching 3 different classes, two subjects of which I'll be teaching for the first time!  Which means double the syllabi, class preparation, lectures, assignments to put together and students to grade.  In preparation for these classes, I'm not going to have much time to post new content here.  However, that does not mean that the once-a-week posting date will change.  Instead, I will be posting guest art, from commissions and art trades that I've done throughout the summer for the OC Art-XChange group, and also with friends and colleagues from conventions.  I may also post some sketches and works-in-progress for some of the art I'm working on for Fate Saga.

If you would like to have your art featured, feel free to send me an email at dana_corrigan@ymail.com or through DeviantART!

Anime Festival Orlando 2013

Hi everyone and welcome any newcomers to Fate Saga!  I just got back from AFO 2013.  This year it was moved to a new location - the Renaissance Orlando at Sea World.  Literally if you stepped outside of the hotel, you could see one of the theme park's rollercoaster. 

The convention itself was a little slow, but overall was a great time!  I got to see some amazing artists there including Kitsune Steele, Emily Boverie, Christa Deason and Brittany Cruz, some I know from previous conventions - when you frequent the same conventions, you tend to find some of the same people, which is great because we eventually all get to know each other.  I also got to meet Jennifer Hale and Ali Hillis, the voices behind female Commander Shepard and Liara T'soni from Mass Effect, respectively (as well as the voices behind many other characters from both television and video games).  They were both incredibly nice!  Ali Hillis even runs a dog shelter.  She and I went soccer mom mode and showed each other pictures of our dogs.

This is the last convention for Fate Saga, for the summer.  I may hit more towards the end of the year.  If that happens, I will let you know in a future update!  For now, thank you for checking out Fate Saga, and a big welcome to anyone who may be a new visitor!  If you like what you see here, please like us on Facebook, which is located along the right side column of this blog!

Swimsuit Bianca Art XChange, by Hookyland

As some of you may know, I am part of a an art group called the OC Art-X-Change.  Each month we have the option to enter a drawing and get a randomly chosen original character to draw.  There are regular art exchanges, where they have to be full colored, and sketch exchanges, where they can be rougher.  This was one of the sketch exchanges.  Hookyland ended up getting Bianca, and I love love love what she did with the style.  Her drawing style really suits Bianca, and I love how she's strong and curvy, with a more natural body type.

I in turn received FrayZhaun, who belongs to Mycury-Art.  Below is my part of the art trade:

The sketch exchange's prompt was to draw them in a swimsuit for the summer, so Fray's sporting some swanky swimming trunks and chilling out by the edge of the pool. He seems like a laid back kind of guy, so I wanted to draw him doing something relaxing.  He was a lot of fun to draw!

Fanboy Expo 2013

Larkspur, by Shawn Harbin

I went for one day to Fanboy Expo 2013 with a close friend of mine, to check out the convention.  I didn't have an art table for this convention, as I wanted to see how big the event was, and what it was like.  It was pretty small, but still pretty impressive for a first year.  It was fun meeting some of the celebrities, such as the wrestling announcer Jerry "The King" Lawler and the voice actor Rodger Bumpass, who brings Squidward to live in Spongebob Squarepants, not to mention Dr. Light in Teen Titans and other characters.  

One of the special guests is a pal of mine and creator of the comic series, The Dungeon - Shawn Harbin.  I met him at Megacon a few years ago, and he's a swell guy.  The Dungeon is his pet project and beloved creation, just as Fate Saga is to me.  He already have several comic issues complete.  While we were at Fanboy Expo, we did an art trade.  I drew The Dungeon's Lace Wings and Brahmabull, and he drew Fate Saga's Larkspur!

Just as a reminder, Fate Saga will be set up in the artist alley in Orlando, Florida for Anime Festival Orlando, on August 16-18.  I look forward to seeing you there!
