Some sketches to make sure paski and garmair are visually distinct from each other.

Garmair can open their mouths considerably wider than paski can; think of how a dog yawns versus a horse. I have quite a few non-scanned sketches of Radon with tons of loose skin around his cheeks and neck like Bindi has; I like that better than how tight-skinned he is in these pages, though I may continue to fiddle with that. Paski skin tends to be pretty tight, especially in the hot-climate subspecies.

Garmair torsos also resemble human torsos, though flatter-chested and more lightly-muscled. And they are digitigrade. Paski are based on brown capuchin monkeys, and are ungulates.

I’m trying to get a solid design for Nuh. She needs to resemble her brother, Cuneyt Kayahan, but also be distinct. In my first-ever drawing of her, her face came out pretty round. I like that look, so she’s probably about ten pounds heavier than Cuneyt, and an inch shorter (she’s male-to-female, so she’s got male proportions). I’ll have to draw her a bit more before I’m satisfied.
