Here I am with the last chart on young, bare and colorful skeksis!
In this case, this third chart (the Apocryphal chart!) brings up the four skeksis original characters some frinds and I have been managing and developing through stories, roleplaying and collective thinking.
Hopefully you will like their designs and the brilliant hues they sported in their youth!
Fom (your) left to right you have SkekKel (the Counselor) SkekFer (The Gardener) SkekDu (The Mindspeaker) and SkekLa (The Illustrator)
I know: my poor skeksis didn't get pretty colors: she was split as a nearly-albino!...Anyways we can bet she is boasting happily in her youth even though she has no bright hues!
We also get to see where her only color spot was placed exactly: there to her bak, right between her shoulders and amidst a mass of grissly striped feathers, that red one poked out (later plucked to become her drawing utensil)
I hope you will enjoy these fellows as much as the original cast from the Dark Crystal canon universe!
I'll soon be back with muh more art!
STAY TUNED! XD

It was such fun to try and imagine how they might have looked like when young and colorful!-<3
I will keep drawing them, I still am doing it!
I only need time, of which I got too few lately...my mother is sick right now, and I must tend for both her and my house....plus, my job XP
That is slowing me to make art, but I will keep things coming! the asks will keep coming, and the drawings and Brotherhood comic too ^^
Don't worry, more will come soon, Amanda!
And SkekFer is all like : "That's right, LOOK NOW..STARE!...Soon we'll be all covered with tons of cloth from head to toes!
So you better LoOK NOW AND LOOK WELL...
SkekFer: What's that? I can't hear you.....falls asleep standing up.
SkekDu: Hmmm what an unusual colouring...SkekLa. I wonder what she's thinking?
SkekLa: *Far away in dreamland* Hmmm did I hear voices? No, just my imagination. *enters art dreamland*
OHHH MY!!!! XD
SkekKel jokes at his very own mate! XD
And SkekFer falls asleep while standing?...then no more sweetberry wine for her! XD
SkekDu suspects SkekLa may be thiking something strange?...and she confirms by mentally floating in an artsy ether!!! XD
This comment was such FUN to read!!!
I'm happy to know you find them goodlooking and hahahah the fact that you can FEEL their personalities from their aspect and color palette is great!!!
SkekLa: CUTE???? I AM NOT CUTE! I AM A SKEKSIS LORD AND I DEMAND RESPECCCTTTGHHGHGHGHGHH
Me: *pinching her cheek rather enthusiastically* YEP. What you said. CUUUUTE!!! <3
Since she's the kind of "misfit oddball" of the crew, I am happy to know such difference reads well, and results in a "rather friendly look" for a skeksis...her eyes were possibly more furiously green-bluish those days, hence why such strong contrast!
I am so HAPPY you like her!
Ah yes...SkekDu is fabulous And she knows it!!!
I tried hard to ahow them just as I imagine them as young skeksis! ^^
I'm proud to see you find them fabulous-looking! ^^
Well, since the skeksis are all about individuality, I felt I NEEDED to let them represent that even through their skin coloring!
I strived a lot to convey their personalities even through thir skin patterns and tones! it's awesoe to know you feel I succeeded!
But it might look as if they had wings! XD
Sadly it's just a bunch of quills and feathers actually, but It's doubtless that they tke great pride on them! ^^
I tried to recreate them as beautiful, though anatomically convincing for skeksis!
I'm so glad you think they look good!
Where does the scar on SkekLa's leg come from?
Ah, that scar!
It will be better explained at some of the incoming comics, but indeed between skesis it's no secret: She got it by the hand of the Emperor himself, at the very moment after dividing from the original urskeks!
Amidst a wild fight between fleeting UrRus and bewildered skeksis, *when they still hadn't realized fully that they could not harm each other without paying a huge toll* SkekLa accidentally crossed the Emperor's way as he was wielding his improvised weapon made from a ritual scepter against everything that moved, and as she bumped into him he hit her with a scepter tipped with a jagged crystal shard. It tore her muscles so badly that it left her a limp for good.
AND caused the particular antipathy the Emperor would show her ever since.
SkekKel looks fierce and amazing too!
SkekFer looks so very calm and SkekDu really as if reading ones mind. Perfect.
It makes me crazily happy to see you love them so much!
Heheheh SkekLa NEEDED details when her colors were always dull
I like knowing you think she's cute!!
SkekKel looks very fierce and imponent! I loved drawing him as well!
SkekFer is either one of the most delicate skeksis, if not outright the most delicate of all!...so small and gentle looking!
SkekDu is really cunning, I did ll possible to show her up as such, here! ^^
THANKS SO MUCH for enjoying this one!
