[WIP] December 10, 2494.

Previous | First

Did some more work on this. Realized Isaac’s position was entirely untenable, so adjusted it a bit. (He was half leaning on his side, but now he’ll be prone.) Also redrew his face some—I never could get the hang of drawing long muzzles.

December 10, 2494.

An idea I had kicking around in my head for a while that I finally started work on at Sketch Night on Saturday. The plan is Isaac, Maxim, Huck, Modi, and Magni all around a campfire outside Dunamy Town on Huck and Maxim’s 18th birthday (old calendar).

Not too happy with the execution yet, though. I’m not sure the sketch conveys the general outline I was looking for, and I don’t like what’s up with Isaac’s head here.

Mack (Magni).

Finished this one, too.

Click for growth

This is Magni, or Mack as he’s called, and he’s a rami. Usually rami are blue or gray in color, so he’s somewhat atypical… It’s possible he’s only half-rami, but I don’t actually know, because I don’t think I’ve ever seen his father.

He was born in 479 AM and grew up in Dunamy Town with Maxim and Huck. He collects feathers, and I’m not entirely sure why.

More things to go on the Nother timeline, if I ever get around to putting that together. I realized I need to start writing more about Nother and the other worlds I have, so this week I added putting down information for Frathwiki to my to-do list. Likewise with putting down detailed information about my characters…

WIP [coloring] – Magni

Previous (Full pencil)


Started on coloring him.  As I mentioned on FA, this is actually a pretty unusual skin tone for a ramyo, though it mightn’t be out of place on a human.

Magni – final b&w


This is probably all the pencil work Magni’s profile pic is going to get. Next comes starting to color…

WIP – Magni


Feet – did I mention feet still need being worked on?  They’re not entirely as bad as I thought they were, but they wouldn’t dare stand on their own.

WIP – Magni

I like the way his face is coming out.  Outside of, you know, the enormous chin; I’ll have to do something about that.


The feet as well are going to have to be redrawn when I get to them.  I’m not the best at feet in general but even I can tell these are definitely not feet to be proud of.

WIP – Magni

All right, so this is one of my characters that’s seen far too little implementation. By which I mean to say I was kind of attached to him in high school fifteen years ago (fifteen years ago! *waves old man cane*), but I don’t think I’ve yet put down anything about him.  So he came up next in my series of profiles (previous: Maxim, Huck) and this is what I’ve got so far:


He’s a rami by the name of Magni—he also goes by Mack.  His last name has fluctuated over time; I’m pretty sure its current value isn’t congruent with (the latest version of) good Rami phonology, so I won’t bother to list it here until it’s finalized.

Drawing this guy was complicated by the fact that after all this time it was somewhat difficult to envision what he actually looked like.  It does not help that my only picture of him was drawn in the dark ages, before I learned how to draw—I was trying to construct the above from the below:


Yeah. Considering that, I’d almost say I did pretty well.   He might look better with accessories like that but it doesn’t match the profile template I’m working by.
