Got a new sketchbook for christmas. As the tradition goes, no sketchbook shall remain blank for more than two days, unless really special or lazy.
And more triaformica! I seriously enjoy drawing the heck out of these things, hope you don't mind. I personally don't mind either way, I enjoy them too much to stop. They are this weird mix of slime mucus, cephalopods and centaurs, with details of at least twenty different organisms and few own ideas thrown in to make things interesting, so there's still lots to explore! It's like drawing them feels like an adventure.
Exploring the gender differences here a bit. As the Z are now officially slimmer and more agile than the others, I should start showing it off in their drawings too. Also figuring out their musculature a bit. None of my anatomy books are with me here, so I'm kind of winding it. Well, I'd have to modify any reference anyway since they just won't obey the usual hominid shape.
I think I'm drawing their heads too big. It's kind of supposed to be big (big brains, jaws completely separate from the cranium part of skull, and generally being a counterweight for the tail-abdomen) but I'm never really sure how big it actually should be.
A family of trias here. I can't really call it a couple since there's more than two, but that's closer to truth, as these are mated adults. Trias are very social creatures who live in tribes made of several family units, and each family unit is made up of usually 2-4 adult individuals (5 or 6 in rare cases) and random number of adopted youngsters. Trias generally enjoy being together and socializing, and social events are common. In most cases the events include dancing which is often started by Zs, who by default like showing off and being at the center of attention, although the other two genders might join in too. Individuals shown here are, from left to right, Y, X, Z and Z.
