ho hum world building by R-WOLFE ho hum world building by R-WOLFE
These sketches are pretty old, at least a month I think but eh. I like 'em and slapped some colors on them.

Just some lil' studies for my Tecatl and tryin' to figure some outfits I guess. They're fond of jewelry as well, having lots of jade necklaces and bracelets and plugs and nose shields n' earrings and nipple piercings too(though I never drew those hmm). Clothing itself is rather loose, but not too loose in the case of work clothes in that it could get easily snagged and ripped while working. Hair and tail length depends on how an individual works about. Those who inherently have more strenuously active duties, especially those running about in the thick brush, tend to keep the fur on their head cropped short and even going as far as docking their tails in some situations, though tail docking also occurs in ceremony among certain tribes.

A lil' extra I guess is that to them something akin to the social construct of gender in humans would be highly alien and even unnecessarily complicated to have. For Tecatl the only real differentiation is who gives birth, and outside of that they've never been people to separate work and life along lines of sex nor gender as it wastes decent time that could be spent hunting or farming and building n' raising families amongst other shit to do.

Oh also in these colored drawings I explored possibly fur color outside of the usual light-toned fur that is the most common. Other tones would be dusky, greyer fur of varying values to a rarer rust color that occurs in certain genetic families as a recessive gene of sorts I suppose.

Yeh.

lays down in your world and character building.

wheezes.

no but seriously seeing your creation stuff is really inspirational and whenever you talk about how the cultures and bodies and beings work it's just?? really cool gosh

sorry for rambling :iconlazywaveplz: it's just that the people (and aliens) you create feel so coherent and well thought out, it's fun to hear about them!

They're pretty much pierced into the flesh of the nasal bridge, more towards the opening where the bone isn't in the way. Then up closer to the eyes they're anchored in like skin piercings would be.
