Sadly I'm so wrapped up in my schoolwork that I don't have the time to really participate in any comic production BUT I have the time to do misc. art and such! So hopefully I can just use this thread to make up for lost time, lol. Hope y'all like whatcha see n' stuff.

A lil' bit of my dear Saab, since I've been thinking about them alot and also the small answer to where their mouth even is! Their face just splits into three parts and there you go.

Aaaand one of the NPC's I whipped for my game, haha. Originally was gonna be my go-to character as a player, but DMin' had me cast them as a NPC instead. 

And to anyone who sees this, I'm hoping it'd be okay to some of y'alls characters? Like requests n' stuff? :> Just for funsies and such, and I'm a sucker for all of the characters on here lmao, so heyyyy...Hmu if I can just whip up a drawing of your character and I'll definitely get on that during my free time.

I'm worried that their design as a monster is...Overbearing, and if so I'll switch to another character.
I don't think you need to switch to another character, maybe just simplify or clarify a little? My first reaction to the monster form is that he looks cool, but I'm a little confused. Are those super long teeth? How big is the mouth? Where exactly are the translucent fin things attached? Was this just a design you thought was cool or is it based on something? Maybe I'd work on your story a little because it's not really clear why he turned into a monster. I mean, making a more well defined story might help your design process a bit. Why does he transform? Does he hate it or does he embrace it? What are his goals? Ask yourself questions like that to flesh out your character.
But, your art is good so I'm looking forward to more! Just my thoughts.

I'm super happy you asked! I'm glad you like my art btw, haha. :DDc
To answer, I can definitely understand your confusion! The design is very...A finicky thing, honestly. The features of his general head area do appear as super long teeth, and a mouth, yes! But those parts are definitely not able to be utilized as such, and the location of his actual mouth is a mystery right now. The design was based off the scale worm, Eulagisca Gigantea! Although at this point the connection to that worm is pretty thin. I'd be happy to redo the reference so that I can make some things clearer!

I wasn't exactly sure if I could explain the whole transformation thing en' length, but the reason why he transforms is because in his story, he enters a completely different universe which included the existence of magic, none of which exists on Earth and etc.
Because he enters this universe, a completely new species (Human) which didn't gain entryway through methods natural, the magic of that universe creates a 'Balance' of sorts by gifting him this monster form so that he may be less of an outlier in an environment of non-humans. AKA "This thing is here, it shouldn't exist here but...Magic will make it work somehow."

His feelings on this ability are more or less indifferent! In the story, his environment is of monsters, the transformation is of no trouble to him because of how adjusted he is to living amongst those who are non-human. However, because some of his relationships throughout the story are...Not healthy, he perpetuates his monster self as a second chance at life, a way to live as someone else, who would always be better then him.
His goal in that story is to simply...Find out the science behind magic in that universe, discover how he got there alive, who did this to him, and how he is able to transform with seemingly no repercussions whatsoever, because it's intriguing! (And also he needs someone/something to blame for the current state of disarray he's in.)

I'll certainly think more on this and all!! Thank you for the questions/tips!! :>

He's so handsome!  Do you have something in mind for what you wanna do with him on VOID?

Thank you!! :Dc I don't have any definite plan yet but, in Niles main story his interests were discovering the functions of magic, so I might do something with that in mind!

Or maybe just make friends. He likes doing that haha.

Hopefully sometime soon I'll be whippin' out this dude (I'll...Clean up/Possibly redo this reference later):
Also this is like my first time in years using a forum so...Hope y'all can bear with me here lol.

Niles doesn't have any magical powers of the sort outside of their ability to transform from monster to human instantly in intervals that can be controlled but are ultimately random. They can put up a decent fight, but at best they'd rather...Avoid it.

Intrusive and vague as a monster yet, reserved and humble as a human, they use their forms as advantage and are oft to pretend as though they're two different people entirely until they are discovered.
They were originally always human, but magic changed them by pure chance.

Any commentary is super appreciated! I'm worried that their design as a monster is...Overbearing, and if so I'll switch to another character.
