Coniferie are a race of sapient plant-people who inhabit the continent of Furot to the south of Keos Leesa. They have a large variety of dimorphism in their body types; from tiny bushy critters, to woody humanoid trees, to giant hulking monster-like beasts made of vine.


The acian are a swamp-dwelling, crablike people who inhabit the continent of Taya Makiki to the west of Das and Leng’sor.

Not much is known about the acian people as they communicate in a language that is unknown to Sentients.


Pheeeeeeew. Everyone is sketched! Just gotta clean up some of them, then I cna go into the line art :)


Quickly redid something from 2009. I decided to only let myself use default brushes/effects instead of drawing everything by hand, same as I did with the original :D & I had fun with it! A nice way to relax between serious work

Obviously not my best, but that was the point haha!


Ancient characters of mine, redesigned for my current style! :D They're just a couple of sweet teens.


Unhappy bubbles! Unhappy baby.


Naga have the shortest gestation of all live-birthing Sentients, at 4 months. Due to their short gestation naga infants are born fairly weak, with their eyes sealed shut, and need constant supervision until their first year when they start to open their eyes.

Although naga are born functionally blind, their sense of smell is still very acute and they can learn to recognise people and things by smell. They will blow large mucus bubbles and press them against people to sniff them.

These mucus bubbles are also used in an infant’s communication. As most naga language is visual body language, closed-eyed infants have a hard time communicating with their parents. Instead, they express emotions through their mucus bubbles. Happy naga babies will blow large bubbles, filling them with multiple breaths until they burst. They do this by breathing in through their gills and out through their nose. This can be uncomfortable for mothers who are breastfeeding, as the mucus sticks to their chests and (while they don’t often think of it as gross) if it’s not cleaned off properly it can cause irritation.

To express discomfort or displeasure an unhappy naga infant will, instead of crying, blow lots of small mucus bubbles into the water around them like floating tears. These bubbles will stick to most surfaces and are usually an unexpected menace for inexperienced parents to deal with. Most naga will grow out of this during their childhood, and rarely carry the habit into their teen years.

From birth, naga have what’s known as the “baby curl” instinct. Young, blind naga curl their tails around things and people and grip as hard as they are able. Once they find something they like to wrap around they will refuse to uncurl their tails, even in their sleep, until they find something else to hold onto. Parents usually wrap their children’s tails around their own arms, so that they aren’t separated.

The baby curl instinct may carry on after a young naga opens their eyes all the way into early childhood. This is considered the equivalent of a land-dwelling child sucking their thumb, and many naga children will have specific comfort items, such as blankets or toys, that make them feel most secure.


The new dire wolf art for the site!

With a face more sickeningly cute than I was intending but, sometimes, you just go with it.


‘Oh, yes! Very okay!’ Keemi’Keemi nodded. ‘Keemi when you small, and parents give you three kisses on nose to make giggles!’

‘So your name is...’ Ka’harja hesitated.

‘Six giggle kisses!’ Keemi’Keemi beamed.
