Characters and Creature Paintings


w.i.p. creatures!  We've got creepy Beetle-Moose in the swamp, and Skyhorse in the...sky.  He's bearing children, because that's what male seahorses do...weird.

I've been writing a lot of quick notes as well in order to cement thoughts or diagnose successes/faults
