    OMG, you guise rock my face off Hygami, that pose is SO dynamic, I really like this... And Sentinel, WOW! You guys are so fast. Both of these work perfectly for me, and even look kind of similar, based on goats kinda(?) I think we should consider how to classify this character group so we can expound on the idea... maybe some kind of elf/satyr wizard class? I can see sentinel's being the beginning of a "good" version and hygami's being our "evil" one. Or would we like these to be our "elves"? Should we invent a new race? I also LOVE pushing the features more animalistic, I say we keep moving that direction...

    I love both of these!

    How about something orc or goblin-like based on crows? I think that is what I want to try and flesh out next... will post sketches ASAP.

    We need at least 2 more races to tackle... I think sentinel's mood boards will totally help solidify these choices. I just want to do something with feathers, the rest I am completely open to anything and everything. GO TEAM GO!!!



    PS - Oh yes! I want to write our world's story, too. To give us all a better sense of the characters. What I am thinking now is that while the characters and magic is classic high fantasy, I would like to see our world more realistic - obv keeping with the laat 18th century revolutionary France theme, so more of an urban setting, with vast poverty and a rather bleak climate (always good for a power struggle, good vs. evil rather than the masses vs. the monarchy)... So I think it is seedy, and dirty. Maybe one of our classes is the ruling elite and oppressive in some way, and the rest are the people who serve them (courtiers, servants) and the poor huddled masses... or something like that. Thoughts?

    I think that's a great idea Jessi! - it'll unify all the characters and designs if we have a really solid background to base them on.

    For the division of classes... I'm inclined to say that the deer/satyr elf types would likely be in the upper classes somewhere. Maybe not top dog, but around there. I can see them as being fairly opulent. If we go with the yeti-type of creature as a sort of warrior class, maybe we could use them as the army or guards? And maybe the evil version can be a mercenary or bandit.

    Here's the first set of materials! I tried to find a bunch of feathers for you Jessi! I'll edit later with some animal refs and additional materials, like velvet, leather, etc.

    Edit: a set of animal refs. I included several crow and deer ones since I know we're doing characters based on those. I also tried to hunt around for some unusual looking animals and some from a winter habitat, for the yeti.

    I'm supposed to be sleeping, but I just had a thought - Dae's brief in the main topic thread mentions that it was inspired by game design. I think we could really run with that! Most games these days let the player pick between the male and female versions of a race; we also want to make as many characters as possible. I say that if time permits, we should make a male and female character of each race we come up with. This way we can really explore the race and represent more of the different classes (ie warrior, mage, necromancer, etc.). It would make for a great character line up. But it is so much more work, haha

    OH MY GOSH, the Hobbits/short people need to be the little animal in the upper right of the 2nd image, Sentinel. Great reference... working on some more sketches. How about we brainstorm for the next 2-ish days, and then from there we can whittle down the concept and divide up the work - I'd like to get ontop of the drawing/rendering so we have plenty of time to make it suuuuuuuper polished, and so we can sneak in some extra touches, if possible.

    OH! and that update to the character is EXCELLENT, Sentinel! I love the idea of the deer/elf species being wise and somewhat powerful... I think the humans should be the ruling/oppresser type class, maybe they are hoarding the money/power, making for resentment in the "lower" species... maybe the species go in rank according to attractiveness of the animals we're associating them with. The deer/elves are connected with a sense of something serene and beautiful and wise, so they are kinda up there where as crows or something insect like would be more of a pest and looked down on.... Still musing out loud...

    I like the idea of epic unrest and revolt + magic.

    And lots of thanks for the tip, LostFayth!

    It's called a Fennec Fox! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fennec_Fox

    Anything with huge ears like that = win, in my book

    No need to say how awesome you all are !
    Anyway I tried to do something but I'm not sure of it at all,
    I'll try something totally new tomorrow another animal an other class probably, but after seeing what you three have done, I thought maybe I should do something else than a mamal, so I thought of reptiles-snakes, but unfortunately what I tried was horrible !
    After I went for the spider/assassin idea, so here's lets say first try :

    Attachment 739727

    But I have NO idea of which race this would be in the classical fantasy stuff
    I was more thinking about the animal and they're specific things
    (spider : silent, poison, scary, quick, can go nearly where ever they want = assassin ! )

    Markus! I love this... I was thinking we needed to incorporate some insect, this is fab. Maybe some kind of goblin/spider combo would make sense? Crafty and kind of icky all at once

    I tried to scribble soemthing orc/crow like - I think maybe I am playing it too "human", need to get more... creature-y:

    Jessi you must be freakin crazy I love the designes specially the last one !! omg!
    Markus I love how you combine the character of a thief in the a spider ver well into one figure! he looks dirty and stealthy thats what I reaaly like! greatgreat job!!
    I lREALLY dig the update of your elf christina O_O!!!! let us se more stuff!

    So heres A Lynx Version of A Battle Mage, the lynx cat is for me a bit like an dark elf, bt they don't have to be evil.. well the book is called
    "The Compendium Of Lexx'Jiing" she will be carrying it at her hips with a belt crossing her body up around her shoulder. The Sphere is a "Chza'Lexx Elemental Sphere" created by the Lynx especially for battlemages and got popular throuoght the decades and is now used by most of the of battle mages.

    sry for the little story I will erase it if it annoys anyone

    Edit: rendered it a bit and cropped the image

    These sketches are fantastic! Yours is to die for Jessi!! Love the pose and design on both of the spider assassins, we are DEFINITELY going to have to use these characters for final.

    And there's nothing wrong with a little backstory, Hygami! Awesome lynx battlemage, and I think her book and sphere are a great idea! That knife is kick-ass, too

    I tried to sketch up a female version of your crow priest Jessi, but mine is kind of boring. :/ I also feel like she's still too human... I think I'm going try a few different head variations that are much more bird like and aggressive looking. And her anatomy itself should probably be less human. I think at least one or two characters should be more animal than anything, so we have a broader range of design.
