Mobula Ray Man by lilyhosegood Mobula Ray Man by lilyhosegood
needed to do some more creature dudes and I found a contest for a fantasy character so I figured Id do this guy ;P He is of a race of humanoid mobula ray creatures. I decided that these guys would be quite a peaceful race. They like to collect trinkets like shells and such. The more adornments they have, the higher position of power they have. Like say the king for example would have some crazy accessories (ill have to try and concept that sometime ;P)

short character origin: A peaceful fisherman with a bloody past. Coming from a race of mobula ray men who desire peace over all. They live for the simple pleasures and are no fans of war. Only due to their strong build they are desired as fighters and forced into a sort of slavery. Malen Nautilus (the character you see here) was one such unfortunate soul. Sold into the war and forced to fight for a lost cause... Through will power and the longing to be free, he escaped his captives and progressed to one of the most respected fighters in the realm. On a journey to find his way home he became a legend helping all who needed it from the terrors created by a corrupt world. At the end of his journey he finally found his home again with the mobula people and was able to live out the rest of his life as a peaceful fisherman as he had always dreamed.. but every now and then a young pupil manages to finds the old master in hopes to learn from the best.. and though he is happy with his life of peace.. Malen will always have a longing in his heart to help others and to destroy the evil that once took him and so many others from their home.

This is perfect :D. Suits the animals so much as a docile creature :). They're actually really social too and have the biggest brain of all fish :P. The fisherman, fishermob? XD Is a nice touch :). Love all the extra details like the flys for fishing and I think that's piericings on his... fins? O.o Not actually part is for XD. I only 100% sure were his eyes were after I saw your sketch XD

No no!, It's actually got a really good kind of... This is who I am kinda thing. Like a character concept. Maybe now you could create some sorta illustration with the guy? :). He could go fishing, of find a lady Mobula woman :P. Could be series :P. The journy doesn't have to end here :P

I've been thinking about doing a series myself :). I think it would be quite an interesting thing :). To watch the character develop through a story of illustrations each one making the characters personality stronger :)
