Making this journal to talk a little bit of this idea I've been working lately! I'm looking for some advice or reviews about this little proyect n ¬ n
As I said in a journal I posted a few months ago, I have more or less two years since this little idea to create my own closed species came out, their name was ''Hikurant'' a weird mixed word made from ''Hikari'' and ''Rantan'' (Light and Lantern in japanese, please correct me if I'm wrong on this :'>) I'm pretty bad with names so since I kinda liked it I deceided to just leave it like that XD
So, I totally abandoned this, back then I felt there was lack of originality, just one special treat and I was like... ugh, nope. And then a pretty lot of time later I wanted to make this kind of ''redesign'' and try to bring them back, one night at 3am I said ''I'll do this until someone else does something similar, I can't be the only person on earth with this idea'' (jk) But I have to admit, yes, I was suuper scared of it! So I asked some help, some people even did some research if there was something similar (If you're one of them, I love you ty) I received super nice reviews, suggestions and even got encouraged to keep working on this thing I hated two years ago ;U;
Okay so, I don't want to bore you anymore! Let's talk about what I already have planed for these little creatures ❤
I won't make you read that much, I promise! (?)
Beware this is just a wip, I may change some stuff, and I also apologize for my english!
HOW ARE THEY BORN
In the exact same moment when deep and strong human feelings are released and a light source gets extint, a small spirit borns from this last bit of light and get started on a journey to find a rift to their world. This little spirit travels around the world in the search of and entrance to home and by carring some human knowledge and instinct they slowly grow up acquiring their form based on the influencers of the Hikurant it's attracted to. The more it takes a Hikurant to enter on their world the older their appearance will be!
An influencer it's every single living beign in the world and Hikurants always gets atracted to some of them in the journey to find a rift. The Hikurant slowly growth this kind of curiosity about an influencer and starts to get close to them, to study them or just watch them for long periods of time. Influencers are the responsibles of a Hikurant physical appearance! (As for example my character Dalya in the draw of above who spended a lot of time with a little domestic kitty, roses where also a influencer but minimal)
The very first trait from two years ago!
Hikurant's hair detaches little glowing particles that disintegrates within approximately 40 seconds, by cutting the hair off it becomes into permanent magic dust which can be used to increase the power of certain weapons and accesories or to create special potions. This only can be success if the hair it's cutted by its owner, the more hair a Hikurant have the more powerfull their inner magic will be, however there are Hikurats that have preference in having powerfull weapons instead! Hair takes a very long time to grow.
Bulbs and Shell
A pair of glowing ''bulbs'' with a soft cotton-like texture are placed at the head on the top along a hard and traslucent cover around it called the ''shell'' It's glown representates the health of an Hikurant. The shell it's often decorated with a border made of many materials such as gold, silver, platinum, etc and the shape, as the Hikurant appaerance, varies depending on their influencers.Crystal shell; The hardest shell but still can broke, can't regenerate yet can be repaired using another crystal.Glass shell; Brokes more easily but it regenerates slowly.Matte glass shell; Very translucent, has a fast regeneration.
Annnnd that's everything I got so far TT u TT I think I covered it all still feel free to make any questions you have!
From the bottom of my heart, I hope you like this and thank you very much for reading!!!
