[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.

[WIP] Modi.

Started on some of the linework on this fellah….

Finished up drawing Modi’s profile pic at Sketch Nite on the 16th. Will work on coloring it next…

WIP – Modi.


Did a bit of work on this the other day. I had to move his hand because I couldn’t make it look right where it was; turns out it’s actually too big to fit into those pockets, which I suppose are the sort of decorative flaps you see sometimes.

And yes, his wings are too small. I thought I had measured them and they were supposed to be right, but I was oh so terribly wrong! Will have to work on that at next touch.

Scrap – Isaac.

This sort of goes with the previous post. It’s also not something I’m entirely happy with (not enough showing, too much “telling”), but it did give me an unexpected idea of the kind of person Isaac is.

December 10, 2494 (old calendar)
Isaac had a bonfire set up on his end of the valley for Huck and Maxim’s birthday. It was an old-style birthday so it wasn’t as big a deal as a proper Martian anniversary, but the giant wolf took any opportunity he could to invite his friends over, since he wasn’t really allowed in town.

He was well taken care of, and he was able to keep in touch over the network, but overall, it’s lonely business being a giant. He was glad to see Mack and his cousin coming down the slope a half hour earlier than expected.

“Evening,” he signed, and they waved back, sitting across the fire from him. He was worried he might have made the fire too big for them — he never was very good at his estimates when he tried to size things for smaller people.

Luckily they didn’t seem to have any complaints, and they warmed themselves for a bit before pulling out their [Rami word] and sparking them up.

Isaac, of course, wasn’t really allowed an instrument either, — the sounds would be too loud (heck, he was only even allowed to talk in emergencies) or the lights too bright, causing distractions in Dunamy.

In his dreams sometimes he imagined rampaging. He couldn’t really see himself hurting people, but every now and then he felt the urge to smash something—not an easy urge to work off, when the only things you own anywhere near your size are your own pants.

And those were a whole set of their own problems.

He shook his head and tried to clear out the dark thoughts.

Mack was swinging his spear, leaving trails of white light in the air around him,

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.

WIP – Modi.

One I’ve been workin’ on for the past bit. This is Modi, Magni‘s brother.

Besides these generic profile pics I’ve also sort of started a real pic of some of the guys from Nother all together, and will probably start posting progress on that soon.

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…
