    wonder if you could get away with swirly eyes in such a small space, I think that would read better for "madness", especially since there doesn't seem to be "confusion". It would separate it from "distracted"

    That's a great idea! Can you tell me if these, ah, register as spirals?

    Yeah, that looks great!

    I’m a big fan of those!

    I think if you added occasional colour flashes to the word bubbles you’d have a secondary means of seeing what’s going down.

    So Melancholy might fade from white to blue slowly, while Berserk would flash red quickly. You could also colour all the Fey Moods differently if you want players to know what they’re getting, or not.

    Hope everything is going well with you!

    Yep, I'm definitely gonna try adding more colours on the moods, though it's difficult to come up with a relevant colour for many of those.
    I got stuck trying to work on trees as they're very frustrating to work with in DF. Here's some sketches from that:

    And now a few animals to relax:
    a tortoise and two attempts at a gibbon (using my favourite, pileated)

    After a long break for holidays and life stuff, I'm resuming work.
    I was super happy with the lion and shark... so to balance it out I started working on the DF-original creatures, starting with the Draltha. Looks like I'm gonna have to spend some more time actually learning concept-art techinques >_<

    Mayday on
