Because I’ve been wanting to reteach myself anatomy and muscle structure.
Have a naked, flexing Aredon
My character overview series are because all of my great references pictures and important character information gets lost underneath all the posts that I do, and I’d like to have references easy to find for people who are doing trades, commissions, or gift arts of my characters.
I figured that I should give some of my female characters some attention, because its usually my boys that take center stage. Liah is the main female of the Intrepid series.
She is a reth’kaa, meaning that she has a rare ability ability among her species that directly connects her soul to the Lifestream, causing an increased sense of empathy towards others. Her personal abilities allow her strong empathy towards animal life. She can communicate with animals without saying a word and is slightly shamanistic. The best way to describer her would be a futuristic female version of Dar from the Beastmaster.
She is a member of the Blackmane order, a small group of intergalactic beastmasters but was hired onto the Imperial Suns because of her abilities.
Appearance-wise, she is a very beautiful woman with cute features, but she seems to be unaware of her own beauty. Either that or she simply doesn’t care. She does not dress or act overly sexy and should not be shamelessly sexualized. Liah’s charm lies in her inner beauty, strength and kind personality.
Character Sheet. This is a few years old and my style has changed a bit since then, but her appearance stays the same for the most part. I hope to make a better one sometime.

Her defining facial features. These are important to avoid ‘same-face syndrome’ among my characters.
Here’s some notes on Ultimarian eyes, since they’re pretty distinctive.
As for body type, Liah has a slender build and is very lightly muscled. Her breasts are a B-cup and she does have generous hips.
This is the best example that I can find of her body type.
As Liah is a beastmaster, she is usually accompanied by at least one animal. Some of her companions include:
Gabriel the Ariasha (white cat creature in her character sheet)
Nimbus the Cobyth
Khepri the Thokhil
Another thing to note is that she has a deep spiritual connection to Shae, although the two are friends, not lovers (even though it’s painfully obvious that Shae wants to be more then friends).
A ton of more info can be found on her wiki page.
Today’s inspiration music, since I’d like to work on some Sin City fanarts for my portfolio.
This is long overdue, since this movie is on my top three list of favorite movies (maybe even my #1 favorite). Seriously.
I’ll actually watch the DVD menu for ten minutes before watching the movie. I get goosebumps just watching that.
And yes… I am super hyped for the sequel coming out later this year.
Today I’m going to get back on working on art that I owe people. I’ll still be working on my portfolio as well, but some people have been waiting long enough for their art from me.
Today will be spent trying to finish BadJoe’s commission… which combines steampunk and Skyrim, so it should be loads of fun. Per usual, only my world building stuff goes here so it will be popping up on DeviantArt and FurAffinity later on.
I’m hoping to do the last page of Issue 3 done today. Although it’s taking a backburner for art that I’m actually getting paid to do so no promises.
In the meantime, have a two minute warmup doodle from this morning.
I had a dream about this species last night. I can’t tell you much about them except for the fact that they were nectarvores and had lots and lots of hair. I might have to play with this design a little when I have the chance.
Not to thrilled about the body type, so there will definitely be lots of changes to them.
Which I’m actually hoping to get as a real tattoo in the near future. Like on Shae, it will be located on my left shoulder and will only be about an inch or so big. I always wanted to get one of my boy’s tattoos on myself, but most were either too large or located in a place that would be hard to hide.
I hesitated to post this online, since I have seen people steal tattoo designs intended for other people… so I will just leave the warning that if you steal other people’s tattoo designs, then you are the biggest asshole in the world.
