Quick doodle of Copper, ex-Qunari now Tal-Vashoth but also my first Inquisitor. And a rogue, because my tradition is to always make a rogue for my first playthru of each DA game. (It’s my fave class after all)
All my Inquisitors are Qunari so far…. :U
I’m not sure if I nailed the “I can’t begin to give a shit” expression Lily usually wears but I can’t do much about that now.
I’m super happy I got her thin face and age to show, in any case. She’s the oldest of the the three ladies (yes I added another, called “Copper,” because I need more polyamory in my life) and is pretty much the most no nonsense old bat you’ll find. Mud and Copper like her anyway, though, grumpy ol’ lady barking at them to stop being lazy and giving them kisses when they’re good. Yessss.
Y’all thought I was kiddin hahaha gay Qunari everywhere
Two farmers, Lily and Mud. They gave each other the nicknames because they’re in love, so there. Lily’s the taller, lighter one and she hates the nickname Mud gave her because flowers are dumb so she named her kadan “Mud” as punishment. But it didn’t work, because Mud’s a huge squish and thinks it’s funny, just how she thinks it’s funny to call Lily by that and watch her glower. Obviously those names would be in Qunlat but shit if I know those words in Qunlat otherwise they’d BE in Qunlat believe me, so it’s just Lily and Mud, alas.
I find it odd that expressing love through sex with same-sex and/or an individual with which you can’t produce offspring is totally forbidden by the Qun (as sex with an individual with which you can produce offspring is, and that makes total sense within the Qun, same-sex does not). Like that must take some fuckton of restraint, so I just choose to ignore that whole deal and say that everyone’s gay instead. I mean, that just seems like the logical outcome to such a silly idea. Obviously not all of them can be asexual and even us aces get some urges from time to time, like seriously, you can just forbid living, breathing organic beings from having nookie it will never work. lol
I have another pair of dudes, but I’m debating on their role in the Antaam I want them to have. I have a mighty need to draw those buff bastards head-booping, though.
Ŋêlôrán is predominantly a red sand desert that stretches from the lower equatorial region to the polar region of the Southern hemisphere. While its temperatures can reach between 80-90F (27-32C) it is generally much cooler- even having freezing temperatures during the night, especially in the south.
Dress in this area is modest and of solid color, usually navy or dark purple. Very rarely is embroidery employed as a form of decoration on the clothing, it is normally used for decorative hangings and blankets instead. These items are passed down family lines, especially blankets which help combat the chilly evenings.
The long under and top dress serve to keep warm as well as keep the dust and sand off the body.The face covering is optional, also to keep dust out of the nose. Veils are not worn out of religious obligation or ideas of modesty and are instead worn as a way to keep the hair out of the way (much like the southern/mountain tradition). During festivals, though there is really no special dress to speak of, hair will be worn down and uncovered.
For every day wear they use a set of plain leather shoes as protection from sand, which still gets hot in the sun despite temperate climate. In the winter they wear a boot much like what is worn in the southern/mountain tradition. Their coats also have a similar style, likely due to their overlay in southern Ŋêlôrán. Coats are rarely needed in the northern part of the region.
The region where this clothing style is found is primarily hot and humid all year round, with an exception being Southern Tásför where it is a more temperate climate. In this region, where the two stylistic traditions overlap there is also a mixing of dress, mainly in the winter style, as more Northern areas do not have a defined winter thus making such a style unnecessary. Unlike these neighbors they wear sandals at all times outside the house.
Characteristic of this tradition is a far more casual variety of dress than most of their neighbors, with arms usually fully revealed and loose, large skirts to help with the heat. There is almost no embroidery done other than on the upper portion of formal dresses, unlike the heavy embroidery found in the traditions of the Southwest, Southeast, and Mountains.
Because of the heat, bathing is an almost daily activity and done at communal bath houses. Hair is therefore worn down and free flowing, usually long.
Everyday dress is slightly different depending on the area. In the cities ladies wear two separate pieces of long fabric which cross over the chest and tie on the opposite shoulder, under which they wear only their undergarments. In more rural areas there is an under dress of two pieces of fabric sewn at the sides down to the hip and buttoned on either shoulder. Over this a skirt is worn, tied in the back, and a shawl, sometimes with embroidery on the ends, usually tucked into the under dress in some way.
The formal dress is worn in both the cities and rural areas during festivals, not varying much from the general formula: a top which sits low on the shoulders and is usually embroidered with a skirt that has been sewn to it, the skirt being of a brightly dyed fabric with a darker bottom. It must be of the right volume in order to get the right amount of billow during dances.
Trémtónť in this area usually have light colored fur with dark mane and eyes of varying browns.
First of many clothing style designs I’m doing. Trémtónť are the just the first, I’ll be doing one of every race eventually, since they pretty much all wear clothing. I draw the style influences for most of the Trémtónť clothing from Eastern European and Central Asian sources, but still try to rely mostly on my own imagination.
Each design example will also show the average fur and hair coloration for the Trémtónť living in the area indicated on the map provided. There is of course variation and the average is not a set guide that all individuals will adhere to, but it is the most common onto which variation occurs.
This is the general style for Trémtónť living in the southern and mountainous regions of the Qástánê continent. Variations in embroidery tradition occur all along the range, as well as deviations in preferred color choices. Thanks to the rich flora of the areas this clothing group inhabits they are able to choose from a wide range of dye colors for fabric; there is no restriction to what colors one might wear as long as the material is present and accessible.
Trémtónť in this area, like all Trémtónť, do not wear jewelry made of precious metals or stones and outside of their formal wear, blankets or decorative hangings/rugs do not adorn their cloth with embroidery.
Headscarves are worn at all times unless sleeping. Their main purpose is to keep the hair out of the way, since the length is usually mid-back or longer, but is also thought of as respectable given washing the hair takes place very sparingly.
Should note that I will also be drawing a male version, since it’s a bit different.
In honor of achieving 1k followers I have decided to give back to all of you! Since I am a poor college student I can’t give you anything of physical value, so instead I will offer a piece of art instead. That’s right, YOU can receive a piece of art of anything that tickles your fancy.
Yup. ANYTHING, whether it be a fandom (any fandom), a scene from a fic, a cute animal (I can draw more than cats I swear), or damn near any other thought that comes to mind, I will draw it. Just for you. There are three places, so you’ve got three chances!
My examples just happen to be my own favorite fandoms, but I am not limited to those. :) 1st place is a fully rendered picture, 2nd is a flat color pic, and 3rd is a sketchy, single color pic.
There are some stipulations:
- You must follow me to win a prize. Sorry, I mean, that’s the whole point!
- You may like and reblog, but only once for each please.
- I’ll draw porn but frankly I’d prefer to keep it light/soft core if you don’t mind~
- If you don’t already have a reference for what I’ll be drawing (if it’s an OC or pet for example) be ready to give a detailed description and actively speak with me so I can make sure I get everything just right!
- To make the above a reality you’re gonna have to have your ask or submit open. If you don’t, I’m not going to go through extra efforts to contact you, I’ll just pick someone else.
- Winners will be picked via random number generator.
Alrighty, I think we’re good to go. So good luck to all of you, and thank you for making my blogging experience so swell. (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
I case there’s anyone here that doesn’t follow my main.
Follow the tag 1k giveaway to find out when the end date is because I’m dumb and didn’t think of it originally. xD
GOD there’s some awful anatomy mistakes here but oh well lol ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
This is Aiji, the benzite, out for a walk on her holodeck with bodyguard Grudyiv and terran feline Sugar. (The cat’s a boy, you know aliens, naming conventions aren’t quite the same. She tried.)
Aiji is an information broker and has her own small station build into an asteroid in some unmarked system- since you’re not supposed to be able to find her, of course! It’s quite a nice self sustaining little environment, if pretty small.Given there’s only ever at most four sapient lifeforms on the station at a time not much is needed to be comfortable.
No, Aiji and Grudyiv are not an item, she just insists on the company of a gentleman whenever she leaves her office. There is a great deal of platonic affection between them, however, since they’re usually the only two sapient individuals on the station (there’s a bit of a complicated past for them too but I won’t bore you).
Grudyiv is always silent with guests when they do come around, even with Aiji he isn’t very talkative, but she likes it that way. Quiet and loyal.
