probably a reference sheet by WhiteRaven90 probably a reference sheet by WhiteRaven90
I was going to upload a more polished version, but it might not happen, i don't need the concepts i do for myself to look very finished/fancy/whatever. So sorry if it's a bit rough around the edges :P I'm doing a small comic with the kid in the first row, for that i needed to update the look of this race. You can see here how they looked before: sta.sh/2ymmizdzfo0 Way too basic for my taste, lol. I was never too interested in doing anything with them but now i feel like i can work with them. Thumbs Up It took a day's work to finish this, so that's nice, good to know i'm not slow at everything. And yes, no, their nose is not IRL-canine.

There are some errors in the info column but nothing big. And in the bottom right handwritten annotation replace "hemisphere" with "polar region".

Oh I love everything about this! I have a realm I writedraw about which pulls from similar things as these, also being a cold pole dwelling race with traces of Finnish/Norwegian culture, albeit it something I created for Neopets and not a more serious project. I love their non-canine noses too. I absolutely can't wait to see you do more with them. But really absolutely stunning.

This is great! I should probably do this to be more organized with some of my own ideas...I like the character comparisons alongside the factoids. Did you create fonts for those languages at the bottom?

Thanks! Yeah it helps a lot. I did make a functional font type for the languages, yep - i figured it would be useful to have them in the future for a very long time~ I used an older version of this, in case you are interested.

Ooh! Thanks! I'll check that out. When I work digitally, it's all in Photoshop, and I keep meaning to look into whether or not there's a means in PS to create fonts. Now I just need more hours in a day!

Just one question. When will you publish artbook? I would definitely buy it!
Your world is so fascinating and inspiring :heart::heart::heart:
Haven't you think about releasing some small tutorials on gumroad or something like that?

I thought about doing an artbook, and maybe a physical copy of the small comic i'm making, and things like that, but i'm terrible at finances and i'm not sure how would i distribute the books. Most examples of artists i've seen doing artbooks are in north america, sending copies to other north americans, and that's not an overly helpful example for my east european butt. I should probably ask for help from the teachers i had in art school, or an experienced freelance artist online, but i'm also too nervous to ask others for help. :/ 

Uh, but i'm pretty glad and flattered that you would be interested in an artbook from me, thank you. @.@ Again, i'd love to, but i don't know how.

Oh, I understand that (I also live in east europe and buying stuff from america and importing them there is so freaking expensive :v).
And did you consider kickstarter? Maybe if some publishing house saw how amazing your art is they would be eager to help you with artbook?
Or maybe you could do something like online artbook that peps also would have to pay to have acces to, and then if some publishing house would notice it they would publicate it. Dunno, I'm just giving random ideas but you probably have thought about it before XD
But asking teachers sounds like a good idea, because freelance artist could be too busy to even wrtite a respond. However it's always good try. 
(I don't know if you heard but Loish has made her artbook through kickstarter)
Wow you are making comic *o* wowowow it has to be also as amazing as other thingos :heart::heart::heart:

Kickstarter sounds like a good idea, i'll just have to wrestle my anxiety disorder for it to happen :XD: Thank you for the ideas, i did think about the topic a lot before, but i wasn't sure which option is realistic and which isn't. I follow a metric ton of artists, Loish is one of them, but events like this often don't register in my brain exactly because i follow so many. ^^;

I do hope the comic will look okay - i remembered drawing comics to be easier because back when i drew them often, i didn't plan the pages. Or the story. Or the colors. Or anything, lol
