April 12: Kirin's Egg by MommySpike April 12: Kirin's Egg by MommySpike
The theme for April 12th on LJ: april_drawing was 'eggs' -- very fitting for Easter. Unfortunately, the boys have outgrown dyeing Easter eggs and now prefer to eat them so I couldn't draw ON eggs.

So I drew one.

Like most expectant fathers, Kirin is going to be from time to time just a liiiiiiiiittle obsessive about his child-to-be. Therefore, if he disappears for a few hours, one of the places that Ariana checks is the clan rookery where more often than not, her wayward mate can be found doting on their egg.

There is a fan theory going around that female gargoyles have pelvic bones that are made of a few separate bones held together with very strong muscles. These loosen during egg laying, allowing the pelvis to open much like a snake's jaws.

Not sure what Greg Weisman thinks of this.

I believe the egg starts small; about the size of an ostrich egg, then grows geometrically over time (while hardening) until its about the size of what Kirin is holding now...

(smiles) That is very good drawing of Kirin and Ariena. I guess all Dads are like that when they know they are going to be a father again or like you said before becoming a first time dad.

I always wondered how that slim garg body could pass an egg like that. o.O

As always, awesome work <3

Let Kirin dot on the egg. After all those 30 years of pain Kirin went through thanks to a whore and all the intolerance he had to face from an ambitious clan leader and a over-protective time dancer, Kirin deserves to savor this unique moment.

Beautiful work :)

Doesn't it take, like, 10 years for a hatchling to gestate inside an egg?

Yep, the female carries the egg for a year, lays it, and then the embryo grows for ten years before hatching with the rest of its rookery. You can read more about Gargoyle eggs here if you want [link]

The female carries it for six months, not a year. She concieves in September and lays the egg in March.

I just love this little scene of the proud soon-to-be papa Kirin is going to be. Never attempted drawing any of my Gargoyle OC couples fussing over their eggs. :hug: Happy LATE Easter to you hon. :star:

Aww! So glad I wasn't the only one who drew gargoyles eggs for the challenge. :)

No need to worry about Usagi's egg not being turned frequently. :)

It's sights like this that ensure that Usagi's in for a wonderful and loving childhood. ^_^

Does Brooklyn know about these visits to the rookery?

Why would it bother him? If anything, it puts his mind at ease that his grandbaby is going to be well taken care of.
