Aaand the series continues! I just had a week long vacation, and this is pretty much all I managed to do. (Besides playing through Uncharted 3 and watching the entire Samurai Champloo series with my brother, but that doesn't count.)
Mostly an excuse for myself to get more used to draw them (and my first time drawing a toilet seat!) by digging in a bit deeper in their body structure and exploring a bit some different body builds. Just a little.
Their windpipe is behind their gullet unlike on usual earthycreatures, so if you ever have to strangle a tria for some reason, you're going to need to put some effort in it.
(I admit, having the top most bit of the throat grind connected to spine was kind of a panic resolution when I realized having your windpipe between two hard bones, one of which was kind of loose and unsupported, to be kind of bad evolutionary strategy. By the way, their vocal cords are probably behind the throat cage.) Retconned! When designing alien creatures, panic resolutions don't work.
The little blood pump that-is-not-a-heart thingy is a mark left behind by their alien side's evolutionary ancestry. It's not vitally important, and about 10% of all triaformica have it really small or in some cases even completely missing. This condition doesn't affect the tria's life. Now wasn't that a completely useless bit of info!
Oh, and also doodled this while on vacation: [link]
Trying out some anatomy things. Also, I'm looking for a word, worth of common and casual use, to use for the X-type of triaformica. Using mathematical letter codes might sound nice, but I get them mixed up all the time, and the things need some sort of living culture. So far the Y are called crested and the Z are twinklies or twinks (or sparklies or showoffs depending on who you're asking). Suggestions welcome.
