Very cool sketchdump. The four eyed devils especially, they remind me of that optical illusion with the four eyed girl - which actually makes a kind of sense for demonic creatures. Well done!

It's fun that you mention that because they're a very deceitful race on a basic level. Most people consider them demons but they're actually not even related to them in anyway, their appearance being merely the result of arcane tampering and evolutionary whims. Thanks for the input!

Thanks! You're not really very far from the original concept I had of them. Minus the alien thing, haha.

What was your original concept?

They're very loosely based on native american and inuit people, with heavy fantasy thrown in for good measure. Their culture is centered around death, the spirit world, and their assumed responsibility to make sure all souls part to the afterlife or whatever fate awaits them. Their armors are made entirely of monster bones they weave together with magic.

wow, in depth! Love it!

I was listening to a podcast recently about Sitting Bull, and they were interviewing some members from the Lakota nation. They talked about how most westerners think, back in the day, when they would go to battle they paint themselves up to psych themselves up for fighting, or they were trying to look threatening. But the reason they paint their bodies is a form of protection. Specifically a protection of their spirit, since they believed violence and closeness to death can take such a toll on it. The guy went on to say, three things can be injured in battle, your mind, your body and your spirit. Their mind they prepare with reflection and experience, their body they prepare with practice and strength, and their spirit they protect with prayer and calling upon their ancestors/gods for protection and the paint is the sacred and physical manifestation of that. I don't know if all Native American nations hold to that belief, but the Lakota does...

I am sorry for my ridiculously long post! I just found that fascinating!

No, it's ok! I like learning new things about cultures I don't know much of. More so with Native American cultures, because there are so few reliable sources outside of themselves to help us understand them. This is very enlightening!

Welcome. :) Yeah, Native American's have such fascinating rituals and ways of life, but since most of their history is passed down orally it's really hard to learn more. And most of what is written down is by westerners trying to record as much as they understand. Wish Native American tribes would really start transcribing down their beliefs and culture, but such a huge part of that culture is learning about it from your family through stories, and I understand that they want to keep that ritual sacred.

Yes, in that way it's good to be respectful of their traditions. I mean I have incredible curiosity about them but also deep respect for them.

The world needs more owlbears in trucker hats. I know there's a bunch of stuff going on here and it all looks pretty badass (the two dudes in the lower left corner especially) but the owlbear is amazing. I want to draw owlbears in trucker hats, drinking beer and generally acting like rednecks..

There's a running gag in my friday Pathfinder group about all monsters being secretly redneck assholes, so I started drawing D&D monsters as rednecks. I'm pretty sure this will become more common in the near future, hahahaha.
