In appreciation for all that my mother, and grandmother especially, has done for me and my family, I dedicate this art, illustrated by fellow team member and artist, Gladys Betiles, to my mother. You can also spread the love, too! Whether it’s your mother’s birthday, Mother’s Day, or any day… send this image to your mother, or simply give her a hug.
I thank my mother for her support of my story! It is a long process, but I am getting there! To see the biography of Yscariot’s mother, Maryam, simply click here or visit the character glossary!
I bought a sketch book a week ago and decided to use it to practice my horrible drawing skills. After completing the concept of one of the scenes of my book, I went on my PC and jumped on the digital tablet to concoct another horrible drawing. I actually love my concepts though, since they tell a part of my story, Yscariot: Sphere of Light.
This is an image I made using a couple PC tools to get this idea out. Yscariot and Riu are not only cousins and future heroes of Earth, but they rival each other from. Whether it is besting each other in simple video games to testing out their new-found power, they find the fun in being number one.

No matter what you celebrate, or what lifestyle you practice, X’el Studios would like to take this time in wishing everyone in the world the very best this season. Every day should be about family and friends, but it’s the coldest season that usually bring the warmest memories.
Although most holidays were abolished in the world of Yscariot™, the main story characters in the upcoming novel, Yscariot: Sphere of Light (as shown here) still enjoy winter time. Ironically, it’s having superpowers that generally keep them warm… Funny right?
Happy Birthday to Cassandra Lebron from Cassy’s Art. Not only did she create awesome art on the character, Trinity, but she is also working on the cover art for the full novel! I am glad to have her on my team! I just did a quick concept sketch on Yscariot from Verse 18 in the free preview Yscariot: ZETA (disguised as “Justice”).

As many of you know, the Action/Heroic fantasy book project that I am writing, titled Yscariot, is a mighty old one that I have built over the course of 16 years. Since mid-January 2014, the story only had 3 written chapters as a graphic hybrid and grown slowly into a small series with three times as many chapters. The reason why I published a series of chapters at a time was because I couldn’t wait to tell the story to the world. Another reason for me starting long before publishing a full novel is because of the length of time to even publish, and with that happening, there are other stories (books and movies) that have been using the same ideas that I created over a decade ago for their own thing. I much rather be the first to showcase my ideas before anyone else for the sake of being original. I do have odes, allusions, and tributes to other stories, but I do it in an original way.
Moving on, I am simply announcing that Yscariot: The Zeta Verses will be releasing shortly on PDF. This means that readers will no longer be limited to previewing the 19 chapters on GooglePlay. The downside to this is that you won’t get that awesome page turning effect, nor will you get the automatic updates that comes with GooglePlay. Again, the story is still in a draft stage, so you as the reader are welcome to suggest changes to any mistake seen or offer critique and feedback.
Lastly, Yscariot: The Alpha Verses will be available in Japanese on May 15th, 2015 on both GooglePlay and PDF formats. Do not be alarmed when seeing news in Japanese, as X’el Studios continues to spread the story to readers of other languages.
Yscariot: The Zeta Verses revisits characters and introduces new ones in art and writing. Preview the first 19 chapters of the future in action-fantasy for FREE today! Visit the Downloads page to get started on the story now.
