still wip’in I LIKE THEM BOTH YET—— GREEN OR WHITE gREEN or WHIte
Color choices ahhhhhh
Here, have a bunch of stress doodles from my LS earlier this evening /o/
What’s up with me and looking upwards….
Last one, promise. These were the basis sketches that ended up evolving into the races I created for my group, Breath of Destiny. These were the very conception pieces, though they changed much after this.
Dyndwe were originally going to be the shortest people, marked by bright skin, eye, and hair colors and black sclera. They were supposed to be somewhat unsettling, but I was told later it made them too creepy. For the same reason, the “gem” of a bone on their chests was removed from their eventual design as well.
The Dagou, as some of you know, were meant to be a beast people that could switch between all fours and two-legged ambulatory modes. Four-legged was to be for speed, but two-legged was better for daily life (since the hands would be free). Their theme was also going to be bone and fur, more shamanistic and wild. Their height was the largest, but they could barely swim and climbing trees was out of the question.
The Aefan, on the bottom left, haven’t changed much. Their tails were supposed to have been very feathery, however, and these days they’re more fur than feather. I feel they have lost some of their mysteriousness, but maybe it’s just me.
Upper right was a discarded idea for one of the Spiteful Ones. They were going to be titrets, and that particular design had them with masks of bone that overgrew their faces as they aged. I wonder what they looked like under them? Thick claws for attacking, and wings for taking to the air.
Excuse my nostalgia, I’m going through my old folders looking for stuff I don’t mind in my portfolio. For those who know Jeffet, how different would he be without his signature ponytail and swept-back bangs? These were a bunch of design options I made back when I was first designing him (and one of the first ever fullbodies, which I scrapped later www)
HOLY………………………….wow this is old. Like, two years kind of old. Does anyone remember this LS? Looking back at it, I can see all sorts of anatomy issues (wow did I not know legs) but some of these are still really cute and some of my poses kind of fun! Makes me want to hold another sketch-crazy LS one of these days… y v y
