You might notice how I started drawing the Tyr’Enns’ head tentacles a little different (I really need to think of a name for those things … like Lekku, but less wobbly). It’s because drawing them each individual segment at a time is really tedious after a time … especially when drawing Ki’i’Mar.

 

… seriously, the tentacles, the tattoos … why did I make everything about her especially tedious? I even gave her name two apostrophes, for heaven’s sake! Sigh … let this be a lesson to you all: What looks cool as a character concept only works if you’re ready to draw it again and again and again …

(I still really like drawing her, though)

 

Also in case you missed it last week: Chapter five now has a title page – check it out!
