Panspermic fauna analogous to terrestrial organisms with subtly distorted physiognomy, from Doug Chiang’s ROBOTA. The creatures in this book were native to a long-vanished solar planet between Mars and Jupiter.
I don’t need you to tell me how fucking good my coffee is, okay? I’m the one who buys it. I know how good it is. When Isabelle goes shopping she buys SHIT. I buy the gourmet expensive stuff because when I drink it I want to taste it
First of all, having even one kin type is absolutely absurd
But then, you people make LISTS of what kin you are.
Do you not understand the concept of FICTIONAL?
Do you not understand you cannot be a nonhuman entity, let alone 15 different entities?
It’s called relating to a character, not being kin with them
It’s called liking the clouds or galaxies or animals, not being kin with them
If you claim you believe in reincarnation, you need to realize it was a PAST life and you need to let it the fuck go and focus on this life
If you use it as a coping mechanism, please seek out other coping mechanisms. Believing to be a god or plant or animal or character is causing your mental state to deteriorate even further. I understand if you sometimes lapse into the state to prevent yourself from harming yourself or others, but you people need to come back to reality.
Takama-Gahara here, I have for you a question. How draw good dergs?
Oh I’ve got you covered:
and there you have your F E R O C I O U S B E A S T
But in all seriousness, instructing people on how to draw imaginary creatures is a bit hard, for me at least. A lot of my learning process is based on winging it until it looks okay and makes even a little sense anatomically. I try to look at animals like birds, bats, reptiles, dogs and horses and combine traits of their anatomy into some sort of a mess of a creature. So I’d instruct you to simply start with looking into basic animal anatomy and trying to learn how animals actually work.
There are tons of tutorials that are way better at explaining things than I’ll ever be and they can get you started. Back in my day when I started drawing I was inspired by Todd Lockwood and his art. His creations gave me a good base to start building my art from. I studied the way he drew and shamelessly copied parts of his work until I felt comfortable enough to draw and try different things on my own.
Not being too ambitious when you start out is pretty important, do some simple designs, kinda like the drawing above. Just drawing some simple lizards with bat wings is a good enough start! And remember to practice, practice and practice some moreヾ(´▽｀;)ゝ
I think that if the Warrior Cats movie does anything like what The Guardians of Ga’Hoole did, it’d be perfect. That level of high-def animation with plenty of realistic details and behavioral motions, I’d be in heaven. They were able to come up with fantastic character designs while keeping it super realistic and for that first intro scenic flying scene I had thought for sure that it was a real owl before we got up close to their faces.
Plus they were so talented at keeping the birds realistic even as they used tools and everything.
The attention to detail they put into this film was mind blowing. If they can do that with feathers, they can do that with fur.
The shots were dramatic, the fighting was breath-taking.
You can not look me straight in the eye and tell me that wouldn’t be badass.
THERE IS SO MUCH LOVE IN THIS ANIMATION. The owls are so true to form and yet they have such a range of expression, I just love them so much and I would love it so intensely if the Warrior Cats movie took some notes when they think about how they’ll portray our childhood fictional cats.
Let’s be honest, we all called Guardians of Ga’Hoole “like Warriors, but with owls” so if this style doesn’t speak prophecy and dramatic fights and badass but lovable animals to you, kindly get your eyes checked.
It would be an honor to call the Warrior Cats movie “Guardians of Ga’Hoole movie, but with cats.”
