Cteno’s goopy mess can break down pretty much any organic stuff. This is a digestive process, but it also keeps her skeleton clean. Synthetic compounds like Splenda can still build up though, particularly on her teeth. So she’s gotta brush on occasion. Since she ain’t got no lower jaw, the reason for needing a set of sharp teeth on her cranium is a mystery, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be pearly white.
Commission for There's close ups of it over on slugboxcreatureart!
Huge giant enormous ridiculous in-you-face... sword... that would totally be impossible to move with but who cares.
I’ve got one or two more personal commissions to do, but I’ll be mostly working on commercial jobs for a few days. Hopefully I’ll be able to get start on RainbowTentacle BEFORE the weekend. It’d be nice if I could finish it in around a week or two!
I've seen Firrette around a LOT of places, and I'm glad I finally got the chance to draw her!
I'm hoping I can find time to get a few personal arts done today between work. I can probably take on a few more commissions later in the week as well. It's just been really crazy lately... And I'm sorry I've been missing so many comments and things... Thank you all for your support right now. In ALL ways. Really.
The support and words I've gotten this past week is what is keeping me alive, and I owe you all more than I know how to repay.
Pay whatever you want Digital Coloring Pack!, and be entered to win my PSVITA, 3DS, or Dakis!!
Ashii you are one of the kindest, most encouraging, incredibly talented, and hard working artists I have ever met, and I'm glad you're my friend. So have an awesome berfmas. Yesterday. Because this drawing is a day old.
Blackriver and Nellko are just as ambiguous a species as Cteno, when you think about it. They look a lot more normal though, so I guess they cause less confusion.
Their homeworld is pretty much 100% desert, since someone came and took all of the water. Their skimpy attire helps them deal with the heat better. BR wears a shade when she’s here, or in other bright and hot areas. Nellko doesn’t need one since her hair and ears are so big.
BR’s cigars serve a communication function in the form of complex smoke signals. She’d be responsible for communicating with smokers in other nomadic groups across long distances. But it’s a lost art at this point, since there’s so few of her species left anyway, and even fewer who stay on the planet. She still likes to smoke though.
I thought this came out nice, and I got some REALLY sexy new paper in, so there’s 13x19 prints AND LTR prints up for sale on the store! [LINK]
