Northern Guide by Tatchit Northern Guide by Tatchit
Barioth, the colossal dude in the bg, is the same guy found in the two pages of Dead Water (that I need to continue.)  After those events he ends up being a guide to travelers looking to go into the northern regions, which are very dangerous during the winter months, and with the war spreading its reach across Vladimir,  half of whom are searching for Kurai, it's even more teacherous.  Kurai, who is accompanied by Travis, hires Barioth after hearing about him by word of mouth.  He is incredibly resistant to freezing temperatures and can heave a grown man around like a rag doll, a valuable traveling companion indeed!

These events take place in Kurai's world, and Travis leaves his own for a while to care for Kurai along with way.  He doesn't do very well himself.

Ah, Kurai. Out of all the things you've designed, that red-on-white-with-a-dash-of-blue is hard to beat in attractiveness.



Barioth does indeed like quite colossal. I always got the impression that Kurai was a tall and slender fellow, but Barioth has him beat in height. I suppose that's understandable, seeing as there hardly was anything in Dead Water to really hint at his size.

Thank you!  Kurai's fairly tall, around 6'3" or so, Travis is around 6' flat.  Barioth on the other hand tops around 7' easy and is built like a freeze proof tank.  :)

no, think GoT inspiration for some of the darker, cooler elements and thick fur jackets( my headworld has always had a colder region.  It's nothing new to world building.)

That's very interesting.  The whole concept of "headworld", in itself, is interesting.  Well, good job on this.

Wow, I really love your story you are developing. I cannot wait to hear more about all of this, it's so intriguing. Aha, it must be interesting for Travis during the first bit for Kurai not being four-legged.

Why not?  Some people like drawing tentacle porn, others like drawing flower arrangements.  I just happen to like drawing talking animal people in clothes. The concept of 'furry shit' can be easily translated into 'everything shit' because anyone can 'waste time' on anything.  It's all about perspective and it comes in an infinite amount of flavors, and yours is clearly different from mine.  ;)

I normally skip over anthropomorphic designs, (I should probably spend more time checking them out >.<) But this really stood out to me, I love the designs here. Great expression and expressive pose.

Thanks for taking the time to check my stuff out!  I like the idea of more 'humanized, realistic' anthros than the cartoonish renditions and I'm glad other people like them too.
