Species: votsals

As of today, four-limbed dragons are now called quottars dragons. Took me a while to find a spelling I liked for that.

Limbless dragons are probably called nullars dragons and two-limbed dragons are probably called binars.

Six-limbed dragons are still called hexarts. I’m guessing they were once known as hexars dragons in the old days, but then the language shifted.

Stablehand: Votsal

The Votsal. I forget where exactly its name comes from, but it’s a bad translation of something, anyway. As soon as I saw that word, probably thinking of this, I had to transform it into an iridescent green quetzal-like Hexartoid.

I imagined them as living in trees, so they have rotatable scutes that can grip branches. They’re supposed to have the ability to do gliding jumps from tree to tree, which the “hood” of plumes (it expands and contracts a bit like a hognose snake) was supposed to help with.





Aaaand these are the rest of them! For Stablehand, anyway.

Lightray eels (I just came up with that as a thing to call the picture and then suddenly it struck me that it was actually a genius pun); a thing where I was experimenting around with logos and also designing the Votsal; a page where I doodled Portent Rider’s horse (which I’m thinking will have a different appearance now), an alternate form for Ikazuchi (Tyrian, not Stablehand), and a doodle where I was quickly recording a couple of slogan ideas for SH’s organisation (it may be hard to read but the idea is there’s like a big picture of him with a quote under it, the way a company sometimes does when it wants to be ‘motivational’, but the quote just says “do your job” :p); a design for the Qualifier; my almost-current mystery being table I decided to stop working on in favour of the one I have in my xml file and my HTML one (the two of which will eventually just be one chart created out of the xml file, probably).

Whew! That was a really brief description and it was still pretty long.

Oh gosh, the votsal is so floofy.

Also, amusingly enough, it’s a very vibrant green because I couldn’t get the word “quetzal” out of my mind when drawing it.

And I think it’s probably one of my more creative “normal” creature designs.

So what does my brain do? It starts endlessly playing fragments of the dhmis song over and over as if to scold me. :p
