Digging Around in the Sketchbook

Hey all. I know I've been out of commission for a while, but I have a nice chunk of sketchbook images for you to feast your eyes upon as well as a juicy story concept coming up. Enjoy and let me know what you think. ^.^

I play this little fantasy game online, and I'm thinking about designing a profile image that looks something like this. I'm trying to go for crazy here...

Keyfish is something I tend to call my female characters when I haven't figured out a good name for them yet, and then I decided that Keyfish needed her own character. This is what Keyfish looks like as an adult. The black stripes in her hair are actually poisonous spines that she keeps pulled back along with the rest of her hair.

A younger version of Keyfish. At this particular story point, Keyfish has been driven insane by a curse. For mages, this mental imbalance is much more detrimental. It causes her magic element to begin to attach itself to her body in order to compensate for the imbalance. Basically, for Keyfish, a water mage, it makes her look more fishy.

I wanted to play around with facial proportions in this one, and I played around with shading the sketch.

Meet Lidona Kid, a Jessin. Jessins are of MY design and are a water/darkness race that live in the deepest, darkest crevices of the ocean, places where even the fish-humanoid Mers cannot survive. Jessins are very tall, seven to ten feet. They have four sets of arms, snack bodies for hair, and tails. They can also dislocate their jaws like a snake can, but it's mildly uncomfortable so they don't do it often. Being cold blooded, the females lay eggs, and because they lay eggs, they have no need for mammary glands. Lidona is a female, but to the humans and Mers that don't know her, she passes off as a male, although in her own species, it's rather obvious she's a woman. She is also a friend of Ratchet Tomah. In fact, he makes her the vest that she's wearing because he's somewhat offput by the fact that she's walking around without a shirt on. The arms in the sketch are a big wonky, but I still like it. :P
