An image I'll be working on over the next week or so, just Jorhnn off on his travels with a very large burd, don't worry he won't be carrying it the whole way - imagine his poor arm!

The Uru call the mountainous regions to the North of their plains 'The Teeth' as the black stones rising out of the snow resemble animal teeth - most if not all animals in my world have black teeth so, there's the resemblance
The bird is a random condor/vulture based on old world critters, I've yet to decide which one!

One cockatrice/terror burd noping out in the background there, not so cocky without his backup!

I'll be posting a 'step by step' of this once its finished on my Patreon if people are interested in seeing how I got this far and how I get to the completed image!
This is also a pretty good example of the coloured sketches I'll be posting in the future for my lowest tier - mid tier and up will get 'step by step' gif's while the highest will get early access to finished pictures/my comic page buffer. I'm getting there!

Thanks for looking as always!

this is looking really good! if you want to go extra obscure for a specific species to cite as inspiration to fit your paleo-inspired theme, there are just.... so many fossil new world vultures. highly recommend Gymnogyps (modern california condors are the only living species, but there's a dece number of extinct ones), because apparently Vultur doesn't fossilize well (which is such a shame, because not gonna lie Andean Condors look cooler)

Thank you Order! I'm pleased you like it! Oh really!? I could only find a handful that had concept work drawn up for them! They do look pretty amazing, I pinched their little crests because not! Would you be interested in noting me a couple of the more obscure critter names from your brain box? I'm interested in throwing in some of the lesser known monsters but have no idea where to look! You know your stuff :v

Are you going the kind of prehistoric fantasy route? Cos that's what I've been mulling over leaning to a bit more. Maybe a mix between prehistoric vibes and medieval. Something about the roots of humanity that draws me toward it. If so, how are you finding it?

Yeah honestly! Exactly that! I do have civilisations that are a little more built up and 'safe' from the prehistoric world - leaning towards an early 1800's/medieval vibe with a norse vibe out in the styx (where the comic is taking place) - it's good fun! Plus prehistoric critters need more love anyway! I forget, do I have you on discord?

No I don't think so! And yeah I ttoally am getting the appeal of primordial critters for inspiration. There's just something like...sitting in the cover of rocks, fire, and looking up at the ancient night sy that makes me wanna mix the sources : ) Note me with your discord. Feel free to join my channel as well.
