People have tried to prod me out of my artist's block, so I picked up one of my most frustrating TCTC WIPs, which has gathered dust for a year. The layout was terrible and character anatomy lopsided. So much for cramming three different species into one scene.
It's still a bit out of balance, but after numerous fixes and whatnot, I'm a bit less annoyed with it. Ended up turning the ur-viles into androgynous "made creatures" with no reproductive parts whatsoever. Seems like they don't wear anything in the novels either.

. Grueburn (and she's just shy of four meters tall) translates the cumbrous speech of the ur-viles to Linden and Thomas. Background: Kindwind, Stonemage, Cabledarm, Latebirth.
