comic duck portraits! I wanted to have another crack at digital painting and tried to find styles that match their personalities. I actually kind of imagined Fethry being the one painting these- what with being an artistic chappy and all

playing around with Emily’s black sparrow masquerade costume from The Corroded Man, which she then based her outfit on in Dishonored 2. 

(The book said her mask had a short beak, but given that that’s a stupid decision I’ve elected to ignore it. I want her to have a plaguedoctor-esque vibe to her outfit)

FEEDING! The chambered Nautilus is a mollusk, related to the octopus, squid, clam and snail. A nautilus, along with the cuttlefish, squid, and octopus, are all cephalopods, meaning “head-foot,” so named because the feet (tentacles) are attached to the head.
The nautilus is the only cephalopod that has a fully developed shell for protection. The nautilus has more than 90 suckerless tentacles. Grooves and ridges on the tentacles are used to grip prey and deliver food to a crushing, parrot-like beak. NEWS: This fascinating animal is now on the list of protected species. Quite rightly of course. Of all the squid-species the “Chambered Nautilus” is the only one with a beautiful outer shell. This shell is used for jewelry which is a popular souvenir for tourists. The Nautilus lives at great depth (200 m) but must go to the surface to eat. This makes it extremely vulnerable to its main predator: humans.

Tuatara

Tuatara are reptiles endemic to New Zealand. Although resembling most lizards, they are part of a distinct lineage, the order Rhynchocephalia.ย The single species of tuatara is the only surviving member of its order, which flourished around 200 million years ago.ย Their name derives from the Mฤori language, and means โ€œpeaks on the backโ€.ย Their most recent common ancestor with any other extant group is with the squamates (lizards and snakes).ย The average lifespan is about 60 years, but they can live to be well over 100 years old.ย Some experts believe that captive tuatara could live as long as 200 years.
