That's the thing with having a kind heart as an immortal. You love & then you lose them. & then you love again. & you know you should stop loving but you just can't help it, because the world is beautiful. Though sometimes, late at night, you wonder if love is worth the pain...
(but then, you wake up, & the morning is beautiful, & you can't help but let your heart soften, & feel love, & be kind. Even though you know it will hurt all over again)
“Some nights are fine. Quiet. Peaceful. She sleeps so heavy you’d think she’d never worried about anything in her life. I like those nights.... But it’s not always like that. Some nights she screams their names, over and over again as she tears herself apart. It’s nights like those I wonder if I should retire.”
"What kind of sick joke is it when a mother outlives her children?"
‘Oh, yes! Very okay!’ Keemi’Keemi nodded. ‘Keemi when you small, and parents give you three kisses on nose to make giggles!’
‘So your name is...’ Ka’harja hesitated.
‘Six giggle kisses!’ Keemi’Keemi beamed.
The new dire wolf art for the site!
With a face more sickeningly cute than I was intending but, sometimes, you just go with it.
Some warm up sketches I did before working on a commissioned pic
haven't been posting much about my gender here lately, but on twitter I've been Really Feeling It. I've decided to just, let my soul do whatever it is it wants to do. Might be "weird" (you could even say... queer) but it's what feels right. And if you know me well you'd probably agree it's a good fit.
Gender Stubborn pride.
Unhappy bubbles! Unhappy baby.
Although naga are born functionally blind, their sense of smell is still very acute and they can learn to recognise people and things by smell. They will blow large mucus bubbles and press them against people to sniff them.
These mucus bubbles are also used in an infant’s communication. As most naga language is visual body language, closed-eyed infants have a hard time communicating with their parents. Instead, they express emotions through their mucus bubbles. Happy naga babies will blow large bubbles, filling them with multiple breaths until they burst. They do this by breathing in through their gills and out through their nose. This can be uncomfortable for mothers who are breastfeeding, as the mucus sticks to their chests and (while they don’t often think of it as gross) if it’s not cleaned off properly it can cause irritation.
To express discomfort or displeasure an unhappy naga infant will, instead of crying, blow lots of small mucus bubbles into the water around them like floating tears. These bubbles will stick to most surfaces and are usually an unexpected menace for inexperienced parents to deal with. Most naga will grow out of this during their childhood, and rarely carry the habit into their teen years.
From birth, naga have what’s known as the “baby curl” instinct. Young, blind naga curl their tails around things and people and grip as hard as they are able. Once they find something they like to wrap around they will refuse to uncurl their tails, even in their sleep, until they find something else to hold onto. Parents usually wrap their children’s tails around their own arms, so that they aren’t separated.
The baby curl instinct may carry on after a young naga opens their eyes all the way into early childhood. This is considered the equivalent of a land-dwelling child sucking their thumb, and many naga children will have specific comfort items, such as blankets or toys, that make them feel most secure.
Ancient characters of mine, redesigned for my current style! :D They're just a couple of sweet teens.
Haven't really been active (having issues with my meds & feeling real stressed out), but Charlie wanted some references for our old roleplay characters, so here's a dumb lady and her only friend!
