I honestly don’t know that I like either better at this point. XD But here, have a redo.
some of my way old OCs
Can't even begin to go into the whys of this thing
I do have some interesting progress shots though? I think they're interesting anyway

going back through old art. Most of it is so terrible, but this is still one of my favorite pieces. From L-R: Hasis, Babhe, and Eine, warriors of Mimder.
Very random Fenris/Merrill sketch to try and alleviate some of my mood.
random floating merrill in a sundress. because i can.
second round of warm up gestures. There’s a fifth, but I decided that one is being used for something in the future.
I have a real problem with drawing too large for my canvas.
So last night, when I posted the Kirvassith sheet, I was being a dumbass and calling these guys the Eldhelen, when I should have been calling them the Eldherin. Eldhelen is their language. ISTG why do I even have these notes if I don’t bother referencing them. /facepalm/
Anyway. As you can see, they’re much lankier than their cousins, and maintain a posture that is a little more ape-like. They’re also much more bottom heavy in the same way the Kirvassith are more top-heavy. Once again, though, very little difference between sexes (hell, i just copied the sketch over and made a couple minor alterations, I’ll admit it), and far, far less body hair than the Kirvassith. Also, much more carnivorous teeth. The Eldherin really evolved toward speed and stealth, both of which served them well in their natural habitat in the tunnels under the Sidhai.
Unlike the Kirvassith and Humans, though, the Eldherin are more than likely hurtling toward extinction. This is in no small part thanks to the downfall of their largest civilization, the Kmetkahlin. While a skeleton remains of the ancient culture, those who follow it only resemble the archetypal Eldherin at the barest glance. As the years plow onward, further out-breeding with Humans and Kirvassith will eventually wipe away all traces of what once had been.
ten minute doodle because i can dammit.
why is my OTP so rare /whines in frustration/
