Myab by Paperiapina Myab by Paperiapina
This is one of those moments when I reeeaally wish my computer's screen would show things in their real size.. Few days ago I wondered how would it look like if taur-shaped grocor like Myab danced. So, I started sketching, as usual. My first drawing that is done completely during my vacation. Yay! ^^ And the first real picture of Myab. I have drawn him once before, but.. Well, the previous pic can be seen here: [link] You can see the changes yourself. Looks a bit better now, doesn't he?

Myab is a blue grocor. In his world people are divided roughly in two cathegories, the light people and the night people. Night folks usually means troll-related creatures that are most active at night time. Grocors belong to that group. They usually spend the daylight time in caves or other dark places and come out when the sun sets, yet it isn't too unusual to see one at daytime. They are strong creatures and in some places people pay them for their service, like in harbors (and people never forget to pay them, grocors are famous of their stubborness and once you let them down, they will remember it. Which means that you're in a big trouble).

They usually appear in blue, green, brown or gray, yet that's only classification of light people. For example Myab is blue grocor for day-people, but night folks would rather call him a blue-green one. All night people who are related to trolls (also grocors, yet they are very far related) have colored patterns on their skin and sometimes in hair also, but those patterns will show only in bright moonlight. So, it's obvious for night people, but day people usually don't have a clue about it. In this picture Myab is in normal lighting, so his patterns won't appear.

Oh, man! I like this picture. It was fun to draw, and I'm apsolutely proud of his nose. I have before tried to avoid drawing characters with human face, because of their lower part of their faces. Well, I still don't know how to draw lips well, but that nose is definetely a breakthrough for me.

Myab and his race are (c) me, thanks.

That's really impressive, considering that you merged the anatomy of two different creatures, and pulled off an energetic pose as well. Nice job.

Geesh, I'm glad you left a comment in this pic, I had managed to completely forget both the drawing and the character. o.o Honestly. Thanks for reminding me of this one! Now I want to draw him again!

"apsolutely". Se on absolutely. Luotan siihen että tuo on lyöntivirhe...

Hmm, paljon mahdollista. Tiedän, että tiedän miten se pitäisi kirjoittaa. Mitäköhän olen mahtanut ajatella tuossakin kohdassa...

That is cool; you made his pose appear very natural. And wow, looking at your last rendition of him, I'd say you're improving upon yourself at an exponential rate. That was only four months ago (and looked good then, btw).

What is that mark by his left hind-leg?

Thank you. ^^ Bwahaha! I'm getting better.

Ha! The first person to notice it. That's my personal mark. Have you ever read Don Rosa's Donald Duck cartoons? He always hides the text D.U.C.K. to the first screen of his comics, and I'm practising to do the same with my own mark. I think that it shows in cuite many of my recent drawings. In The Hunt song it was carved to the rock, in the Moon Goddess it shows on the ball, in Gea - the Goddess of Earth it's amongst the leaves at the bottom of the picture. Just needs to be found. I'm not as good in hiding it as Rosa, but maybe someday. (By the way, those "ducks" are fun to search. I and my brother usually spent lots of time in searching them from his work. It forces you to look the pictures more carefully than what you usualy do)
