Nosk by Tatchit Nosk by Tatchit
Nosk, a very placid Royal Feonix that enjoys lazy days bathing in the sun and resting near water. He walks with a very pronounced stride. The brand/marking on his chest is bouncing between the two shown. I want something simple, the meaning to it or how Nosk got the brand is a story I have to flesh out. Sometimes my characters draw themselves and a story molds to them after letting them ‘run around in my head’ for a while.

The name hunt for him was intense, I was nosing on exotic baby name sites, looking up translations for words that flow with him…and I decided to give up after a good hour. I went back to the file, looked at him, and the name just appeared. I tried to stick others to him but I can’t so Nosk it is.

I love this character and I'm in love with this brush setting. ;o; Do you mind if I ask what it was?

I have the pressure sensitivity option that enables your brush to control the opacity (you can also use the 'Other Dynamics' or 'Transfer' Brush setting to mimic this. tbh the option is probably a shortcut for one set of options Transfer/Other Dynamics offers.

I also used a 'triangle' based brush for this-it helps gives sharp angles, much like an ink pen.

What chest design did you end up settling on?

I'm biting my lip on this one. XD I can't choose! I like them both. I might settle on just the circle/simpler brand in the end.

Your art is like. I don't know. It's everything good to me. I love it. You are seriously my first favorite artist. I wish to grow up in my art and be like you someday, though I know it may take me some time as I progress slowly. . . Even so, you inspire me to be better.

You did a grand job on Nosk's name! It's unique and fits him. Since he is simple and relaxed, so shall his name be. But, it is also as interesting as he is as a creature. A simple Royal Feonix. ^^

I hope that your stress ebbs away on your art rant. Good luck!

Similar to coyote prints, a little larger and space out, but not quite as large as a northern range wolf print. All Feonixes are manx, they have no tail, just a bunch of butt fluff. c:
