Obligatory Pokémon crossover of my OCs! …That I somehow thought was a good idea a while ago. |:D Kind of fun though, it allowed me to build their characters based on the types of Pokémon they’d have on a team! It’s completely noncanon but… I’m massively in a Pokémon phase again haha.

Larips’ main Pokémon would be Milotic, due to it’s beauty and strength. Radec and Latep’s main Pokemon sort of match each other’s, however one can come out of it's comfort zone easier than the other. Ralos is competitive, so Victini fits her pretty well. Also butt wings. 

And everyone thinks Ranul’s is Azelf due to the color theme and head shape, but really it’s an Arceus because he is a goddamn cheater haha.

Haven’t really worked on anything of my own much recently.
But I did do two small drawings of Ranul, plus a concept of the Iolarian race!

In broad daylight, Iolarians are iridescent, and in the dark, they glow aqua. :D

Two small drawings from this past week! I’d post them separately but… nnggh.

The first one’s actually an old drawing of Muinnellim that I found and finished up real quick. The second one is a kind of out of character doodle of Ranul. I just like the colors. :T

I literally haven’t had any time to draw much, plus I have terrible art block! Or actually not really “art block” as more just “I’m going to draw Ranul over and over again”. My original characters are fun for me to draw again yaaay

Finalizing some of the appearances of the Creators! And a bonus Successors drawing too!

Unlike average civilian Noisulli, a lot of the Creators’ appearances come from past leaders. They are cloned from a special set of genetics gathered from each past leader, and then genetically altered using Iolaria to make each new Noisulli a unique individual.
Repetitive features happen a lot, and some are more common than others such as “mask” markings and crown-like formations on the forehead. They also skip around each generation. Ranul and Ralos got their looks predominately from Yrovi and Ynobe (who I have not designed yet!)

Also Noisulli have last names! Good luck pronouncing them! ;D

Finally had time to draw something! Originally this was a speedpaint but it was really fun and relaxing to draw, so I finished it up completely~

Subject matter-wise, the shoulder plates Noisulli Creators wear (made out of Iolaria and resemble Muinnellim’s) allow them to be “invisible” to Muinnellim and its Iolarian spawn.
But this looks like some shippy drawing instead HAHAHA. MAY OR MAY NOT SHIP MY OWN CHARACTERS TOGETHER???

Small sketch from today! It was for height reference initially but Etinifni is suppose to be a bit taller than that. So, just a doodle of my protagonists/antagonists! (*perpetually draws Muinnellim’s profile only*)

I also realized… I forgot to color in Ranul’s markings on his head AND forgot to color the whites of his eyes. Kinda looks unnerving. :T

Despite my previous post about ditching Ranul’s old personality, when he was more cheerful, I still what to make references about it. Like he’ll age with the story and start to become radically different personality-wise.

Like as a child he was a lot happier and very naïve and pretty much was all about everything and thought stuff was great. As he grows older and into his late teens, he mellows out due to working to become a Creator/Successor, but partially retains a desire to act really childish/is an annoying shit still. But as a full-fledged adult something happens and suddenly he’s constantly faking being happy, goes from extreme extrovert to extreme introvert and becomes almost completely socially unacceptable and puts his job on the line. And maybe he was faking being happy his whole life up to this point, I don’t know?

I’m just trying to make both versions of Ranul the same being, not two separate storylines haha.

(Also the glowing crystal/Iolaria crud is more just symbolism, he’s not actually holding the stuff because that’d kill him. |:D)

WALL OF TEXT AGAIN SORRY I REALLY WANT TO WRITE ABOUT CHARACTERS…

Quick speedpaints from earlier today!

A few years ago, I assigned various gemstones and metals to my characters. I assigned Ranul with bismuth, and Etinifni with angel aura quartz. Mostly as an excuse to draw pretty rocks that I really badly want a piece to own.

I didn’t realize it until recently though that I assigned them both artificially made crystals, which is kind of fitting for both of them I suppose! ….Is bismuth artificially made like that, or is it naturally like that? I have no idea!
