Re: Fantasy races
first of all trolls deliberately try to offend people. And second i'm not asking you all to do my job, i'm looking for ideas to expand on

So you want other people to give you their ideas.

How is that not doing your job for you?

Well since he told us all about his Primal race, I think he is just looking to compare ideas on how to develop his races.
Yes, thank you! that's all i'm asking for

Re: Fantasy races
as an expert on trolling, trolls, and trolling trolls, i don't think our pal dragonbane belongs under a bridge.

these forums, my friend, tend to be more of a "here are my ideas, can you help me further refine them?" rather than "can i have your ideas so that i may further refine them?"  does that make sense?  the initial seeds of creativity need to be yours, then we can help them germinate.

that being said, i suspect at the moment you're (dragonbane) looking for more of the style of forum nora is pointing you at.  you should check that out and see if there's any of the kind of help you're looking for available.

once you have your badass ideas sketched out, we can most assuredly help you shine them to a very awesome sheen.
(this is for nora too). I'm using the sites she recommended(and thank you @Nora for it), and i'm not trying to piss people off(if i am, i'm sorry), i just want to refine my ideas not steal them.

Re: Little Wrtiting/Creativity Game : Who lives there?
At the end of the life of a world ravaged by war, a portal is ripped open through time and space to stop the apocalypse from happening.

Re: Race Drawings
indeed!  those are marvelous -- you're very talented.

and, if you don't mind, aside from comments on the races themselves, i've got some thoughts you can take or leave on your art in general.  so, feel free to discard anything that you think is silly.
Spoiler for Hiden:

the things you do really well are hands (man they're hard!), non-straight-on faces, proportions, and anatomy in general.  you're fantastic at those.  i also suspect you're pretty good at clothing and accessories, tho there's not much here to go on in these sketches.

your lines are pretty clean and confident -- well done!  that's really hard to do.  that being said, i'd work more on line weight.  it'll add interest and cut down on the weird homogeny you are seeing, but can't quite put your finger on what it is.  it's line weight.

also, working on more dynamic posing would be beneficial to you, i think.  i've always been a huge fan of bart sears and his "drawing powerful comics" series.  it's fab.  it may be hard to find some of those old tutorials, but i'm sure there's a corollary online somewhere.  basically, start where you think you need to be, then exaggerate it another 50%.

finally, environments -- man, they're my buggaboo.  personally, i can't get excited to do them, so i rush it and they look crappy.  there's not a lot of example here, but i wanted to point out how important it is.

all that being said, if you can conquer figures AND environments, you can basically get freelance illustrator employment anywhere.  (from $30 to $120 an hour)  especially if you're fast.  (so work on your speed too!)

so, yeah.  like i said, ignore all of that if you want, but i think your stuff is really good, bordering on great!  keep up the good work and post more of this!
thank you, but...I just drew the pictures for reference, and they're not even that good really

Re: Race Drawings The first one is a Leonin called Umari 'The Hunter'

 And in case your wondering, here's a basic history of him:
-Like all Leonin who come of age(they age faster so it's around 12) he fought a Hell Knight, won and got the scar(on his chest) to prove it.
-Personality wise, he's quiet, withdrawn, cunning, unpredictable, and lethal
-He was banished a few years after he came of age because he killed the son of King Lyran(king of the leonin)
-He was tortured by Erinye 'The Executioner'(who yanked out all of his claws on his left hand(paw?))<---(wears special rings with points on them that resemble claws), he was also forced to watch him(Erinye) kill his wife and son.

Re: Favorite Fantasy Race(you made)
The easiest way to explain this race, which I love to pieces, is to picture the dome head of a Pachycephalosaurus with the limbs and legs of a human if it were covered in snake-like scales. They have long tails, thick toe claws and are famous for their duels that happen in the streets to settle disputes, which consist of ramming heads into each other until one gives or is knocked unconscious.
I so wish I came up with this before you >:( ;) ;D
