Yeah, not a whole lot going on on this page, and you waited so long for it too, sorry guys. it's been a buisy week. I'll try to get the next page up quickly.

now a quick blurb about solifidian aging, because a few of you have been asking about it and I haven't realy explained it. Solifidians don't deteriorate as they grow older like humans do, and in that sense they are immortal. They can be killed, die from sickness, and in the case of very old ones, loose their grip on reality and fade back into Bahamoot if there's nothing to keep them firmly anchored in this world.

Solifidans do grow up, and because they are creatures that are partialy abstract (and because timelines in myths often make no sense) their physical maturity relies more on their mental maturity than anything else. Solifidians then age at different rates, and can even stagnate at one age for a long period of time.

They can start to show signs of the deterioration we associae with age due to things like like fatigue and illness. Their human forms are also something that they create, and so, while they tend to make them reflect their age, they aren't a reliable gauge.

If you've got more questions, head on over the the forum and I'll do my best to answer them. ( http://hurrocksfardel.createmybb.com/showthread.php?tid=11 )

replies:

re Neko with a Katana: it's still true to some degree nowadays (like "hey guys") but back then there weren't feminists running around trying to stop it.

re Zheyna: probably because I'm not used to drawing legs. stupid toga-skirts.

re Butterscotch: hope I covered that (also, a father wouls probably alter his human form, which he has controll over, to make it clear that he's older than his son. In dragon myths age=power, so that kind of visual would be important to the hirearchy)

re Mr.BlackbirdLike all systems, it has its flaws, but works fairly well overall.

re Onasaki: hope I managed to clear that up.

re Imola: I figured dragons, with all their piles of gold would go for jewlery as a show of power at formal occasions.

re TheDemonDragonCat: well, I suppose it's your arm, I can't tell you what to do with it.

re Nosa: you never see Drake at home like you do Joan or Teddy, so his story isn't as promnantly absent.

re Angelzora: heh, if people think human women are bad when their hormonal, just think of what a dragon would be like.

re MADtiger: thanks ^_^

re Enkida: but the text is there for you to read, not me (hopfuly I know what it says) so if you can't read it that's a problem. Larger text and stronger glow on this page, is it better?

re kasi: Keep practicing. At the start of the comic I drew mitten hands because I didn't like my fingers.

>< Your dragon is so cool.

Wow, I agree with Comic King... You really put a lot of detail into the dragon. It looks great!

Take all the time you need, no rush. You probably have more of a life than most of us, anyway. XDXD

AGH
AGH, when someone addresses the group "Guys" and then some annoying girl just has to say "I'M NOT A GUY." GRR. I swear, I just wanna stab'em in the eye.

But anyway...X.o Yes, your dragons pwn.

Wow. He looks really really freakin' cool, like a cornered tiger or something. O.O And the wings are awesome!!

Onasaki, October 13th, 2007, 7:02 pm


Would be fun to be a Solifidan..>.> I wouldn't have to be a teenager for 4 more years. Hell, I could knock off 10 years from my human form. <.<

TheDemonDragonCat, October 13th, 2007, 7:07 pm

doom Bubbles, October 13th, 2007, 11:17 pm

Mitten hands!! XD *Punches air*

... Pretty dragon! You said they're drawn using cats as a base, right? What do you use as reference? Anyhoo, it's really good. *wishes she could draw like you*

Mr.Blackbird, October 15th, 2007, 2:19 pm


I wonder if the horrific youngifying effects of chicken actually work on any solifidians, hmm....XD
