A younger Loki, before the colors on his tail phased out or into other colors as he aged, and a young Uuki, a less cranky Uuki, before he forced her to marry him. Loki has unusual coloring that is incredibly rare for a male Tethican. His name in Tethican literally translates to "orange". Some info on these two can be found here -
More Loki, since I don't have anything else of Uuki drawn yet -
Loki and Uuki the Tethicans, the story of Galaxy Magnolia and other characters belong to me
Yet again, I love love love your work. The colors, biology and thought put behind your characters is stunning and admirable. An old teacher and mentor of mine-always a well of wisdom-always told me that authors who created their world and characters from the dust up were among the most legendary, even if their audience doesn't fully realize the work they put into it. So, you my darling, are incredible. ^.^ Keep it up, because we all support you and love what you do! I really love Uuki, she's so interesting with the mystery that surrounds her.
believe it or not, I tell my siblings about your story and they think it's really awesome and funny I also show them your comics and pictures (you know, after I downplay the cursing a bit ) so other than that, they think it's really cool
lol that would be awesome, but if you never do it I'll always take care of that before they see it haha either way, they love it. Dergy is one of my brother's favorites. Ruga's antics make my younger brother laugh a lot when I tell him
I don't understand how the very thin and frail tips of their tail can support the weight of that giant fluffy and spiked spade. Do you have any anatomy sheets or biological descriptions anywhere that describe how they realistically function with it? I'm very curious.
The Telson (tail pad) isn't that heavy at all and the fur is hollowed to draw in warmer or cooler temperatures into the body. The fu is no less heavy then that of cat hair would be. There's some info here - [link] The denticles are made out of keratin and also hollow. They are designed to break off easy in fights, but that information sheet mentions this. There's also a mention about C-Gell Cartilage.
Good to know you're so thorough, and not just throwing together brightly colored flair for the heck of it.(That's fun, of course, but but with so much artistic skill in some artists, why not go father. You know?) So many people give in and give up on attempting any decent biology. I always find it so depressing. Although the fact I don't have the ability to always draw the detail I crave in my own species tends to drive me up the damn wall. But, I tend to lurk for the most part, so I don't let it bother me. (I'm feeling so unusually deadpan tonight. My apologies. x_o)
Thanks for the link and info. It's a very neat read.
It's alright . You have some amazing work yourself, and I can understand your feelings on biology. The Tethican species is a lot more developed than what I've shared in my gallery currently. I've just given bits and parts here and there, but I've tried to be very specific with scientific meaning behind almost everything. Though I am not a scientist, I'm just a girl who studies science in her past time who has too many cats and writes stories about ancient aliens. I'm picky and devoted, so I insisted to myself to develop everything as much as possible. Book I of Galaxy Magnolia (parts I and II)are also free online for people to read if they want to know more about the Tethican species, and of course referring to the character info helps as well.
Oh my yes, I have much more information on my species than most people can imagine, including their ancient ancestors. And, I thank you very much for the compliment on my species♥. It's a never-ending war in my head to find good reasoning for anything and everything that others might look at say "lol it's a dragony elf".
It's really encouraging to read these things about your goals and efforts in your work, plus the fact you're a fellow biology lover as well. I admit that when I first found your gallery, I was so stunned and in total awe of your skill and anatomy, that I actually...got really grouchy for a while about the tails not making sense. I decided that stewing in confusion and disbelief was incredibly lame of me, so I finally decided to just ask outright. I'm relieved to find it was an excellent choice. I haven't been watching you for more than a few months, and my life has been busy on and off, so I had yet to even determine the type of person you were. I'm not sure it this sounds odd, but the feelings and intentions in an artist's work can make their images mean even more to me if I know something more about them as a person. Gee whiz, I feel really awkward tonight.
