Sona Concept Sketches by SavannaEGoth Sona Concept Sketches by SavannaEGoth
I've been kinda wanting to do something like this for a little while now, and I'm really happy with ohow it turned out.  What I'm NOT happy with is the fact that I lost half of what I had originially drawn in the background because my art program glitched out when I wasn't looking and FUCKING ERASED EVERYTHING ON THE LAYER.  I tried undoing a bunch but it never restored anything, and I didn't have it saved so I had to redraw the stuff on the bottom and on the left.  Meh.

Anywho- this is my sona if you guys didn't know that by now.  I haven't really drawn them that much . . . or at least I haven't uploaded them to DA that much.  (I had some old sketches of them in a notebook but I don't think I ever uploaded that.)  Basically they're my main sona (I like to call them my soulsona) and they represent a lot of things that fascinate me or inspire me.  They are the embodiment of my inner emotions and thoughts and are really dear to me.  I've been tinkering a bit with their design and have added a lot.

EDIT:  Oh yeah!  And the horns and eyelashes can actually move.  Like, when they're depressed or startled their horns will fold back ever so slightly and their eyelashes sag.  They really rely on their eyes, eyelashes, and eyebrows for expressing theirself.

You'll notice the eyes in the upper left corner.  The pupils, when my sona is feeling normal, are round.  When my sona is hungry they shrink to slits (also seen there).  When my sona is enraged they gain a black tint to the whites of their eyes, and when they go into full on "I am about to murder you, get AWAY FROM ME" mode the whites turn black and the pupil turns white.  The pupil can be either round or a slit in this state.  Next to those is the mouth.  Normally you cannot see their mouth as they have the ability to seal or meld the skin over their mouth at will.  When their mouth does open/appear, it stretches and tears the skin and reveals their fangs and gray, thin tongue.  Their mouth only appears to eat or when they're appearing threatening.  After that is a reference of their wing.  The wings can grow and shrink depending on whether or not they are using them or not, though they usually stay one size.  They're sort of like a bat's wings though the membranes don't attach to the sides of their body.  Below that is the reference of my sona when they're in a more aggrivated or hurt.  Basically, when the rage and angst set in they grow spikes along the top of their skull, spine, tail, and arms of their wings.  Their natural horns become longer and sharper, and the side horns lift up a bit, sharpening as well.  Their tail is shown below when in this state, and shows that additional long spikes also grow out of the sides of their tail.  Below those are some references of their feet.  They have dragon-esque feet with four toes and dew claws.  To the left of that is sort of a side-reference of their body and then to the left of that still are some references of their hands.  When in a normal/content state the fingers are normal length and have shorter black claws.  When aggrivated or angered the claws anrd fingers grow (though the fingers don't grow a whole lot).  Above that I have a few different emotions and angles for drawing practice.  It's also important to note that although they appear feminine in the face they normally don't have actual formed breasts/pecks.  Their chest just extends due to muscle from their wings, enabling flight.  Above that is a concept I had for their dragon form.  I wanted my sona to be a dragon a long time ago until angels and demons began to interest me more and they took on those appearances instead.  But basically (maybe?) when they were a dragon (because they can shape shift if they so choose) they got into some kind of fight or whatever with some threat and had their muzzle quite literally punched off of their face.  They morphed around the issue, sealing their face almost permanently.  After that they also decided that they would rather not have a muzzle if they could help it to avoid experiencing that kind of pain again.

In the middle I have a colored and shaded version of one of my sketches on the sheet.  (I liked it a lot and just really had to do this, okay?  Otherwise this would have been up yesterday.)  I added a blush since I myself have almost a perma-blush and thought it looked kinda nice on them.  I don't know if I'll always draw them with it, but maybe.

:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz: - ASK me if you want to draw them.  I reserve the right to say no, butiprollywon't.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
