Some overdue sketches of the redesign of my fantasy characters. Yay soomething else on my list being ((half)) finished! : D
I'm reworking the thing to have an actual direction (instead of the animu kawaii desu lawl approach I was using at first xD).
First, afari is a made up species I created...I know next to nothing about pop culture elves and elven lore SO I figured I'd make up my own thing. Afaris are kind of half-elf, half-human hybrid things.
So the basic story of this thing is that this little Skylen Owl(character not shown here) falls in love with the youngest Fergavian princess(during the time she is like... 9). He is found out by a mysterious forest witchdoctor who agrees to turning him into an afari. Of course he takes the offer, no questions asked and the price he pays however, is his memories. As a person he has no memory of being a bird. When transformed, he is the age equivalent from owl to afari...which places him around 8 years old. The castle gardener finds the boy passed out in the woods during his morning walk the next day, and takes him in. Living with the gardener, he has no memory of ever even thinking about Princess Carmondy. But one chance meeting has his head suddenly reeling and now he has questions with limited answers.
I was in my mom's car when I had the idea to revamp Jinxi first. Originally I had him as a bird trainer who trained the birds that everyone in the kingdom rode...but then I had the though of what if, instead, they ARE real birds BUT they are real birds being turned into robot...cybirds. Jinxi has always wanted to be a bird programmer since he knew his great great great uncle and greatx3 grandfather pioneered the bird training/riding/programming craft. At first real, live, untouched birds were trained, but since Jinxi's father was little, the birds have been robotic parts combined with the real birds themselves. This has only become more true in Jinxi's lifetime. He HATES that real birds are being transformed into robots so much so that it's hard to tell they were even a living thing before. WHICH is why he stole and takes care of an untouched bird he keeps at his home.
And this cybird thing led to 'what if it was just all steampunk' ....so yeah.
If anyone has some questions and/or input PLEASE GIMME. *grabby hands* I'm thirsty for fresh ideas @-@
