OC Sketches: Rishihi and Adoptions Just some OC sketches. Meant to do more, but since I didn't get it done in time, I'll be uploading an extra sketch sometime later this week.

Some Rishihi concepts. I absolutely cracked up drawing the second clothed one, I won't lie =P I've only given them more "traditional" style garb before now, so it just looks very different. XD

Tali's adoptive parents! No names yet, and undecided who's surname is Averill (both kept their original surnames, and both of their original cultures say that parent's surname is given to the child). Anyway, they're very sweet people care for Tali like she was their own daughter (which is biologically impossible for them). Thankfully Tali isn't a demanding child, because they absolutely would do anything she asked. A funny quirk though, is that they haven't told Tali she's adopted. They're afraid how she'll react...though Tali quite obviously knows she's adopted, just never discussed it. They really do think she doesn't know...!

Looking back at Xahsan and Crystal's little blurbs...I never mentioned they're family, huh. Crystal is Xahsan's adopted daughter (not legally, he found her and decided to keep her). Also, somewhere along the lines, child leashes went from being the dumbest idea to "why did no one think of this sooner?". I saw a family the other day using one, and considering cars where whizzing past a foot off the sidewalk...yeah, good idea! Crystal especially needs one, though the duo gets quite a number of stares considering wingless griffin are commonly not intelligent enough (or are held back from) being accepted in society.

YAY more OC sketches! Oh is that what Rishihi look like under all their clothing? I wondered. The second outfit is um...interesting XD

Tali has very cool parents :) I thought at first she was going to be a hybrid, but adopted is cool too (and actually makes way more sense). *stares hard at them and tries to decide which one's last name would be Averill*

At first I thought Xahsan was on the leash and I was about to be furious, but then I realized he was holding it and I was like, "Oh, very good!" Society's treatment of wingless griffins makes me think poor Xahsan has probably nearly had Crystal taken away from him numerous times </3

Anyhow, enjoyed these as always!

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: I blame Drawfee. I was watching an episode of theirs and they drew a character with those brightly colored, reflective all went downhill from there XD

Yeah I was on the fence about it but ultimately decided since I never planned for any of my OCs to be hybrids (and didn't feel like editing them to make them more hybrid-like) that I wouldn't do hybrids.

Yeah :C Or people make the mistake you did and just glance quickly and think Crystal's parent let her walk their pet wingless griffin around! XD

Thanks! :D

@Pokemontrainergigi: Ah, it's good to be silly sometimes XD

Hybrids make things complicated, and I like these guys this way :D Um, if you don't mind unsolicited advice (and you haven't figured out whose surname is Averill yet), what if Tali's parents fused their surnames together?

That is annoying, but better than the alternative XD

You're welcome! :)

@ReaderWriterNerd&Geek: Oooo! I like that idea! Actually that might work for capraeth culture instead of these two (granted there's a general mixture of culture, so they could have borrowed it). Capraeth surname, or "village name" (as they traditionally denoted what village you belonged to), are a compound word (ie Vivvia LeafLight). I was thinking they would take one word from each parent and give that to their children, but if it was traditionally denoting villages, then it would make sense for it to change based on marriage, as two capraeths from different villages marrying would would want to make note of their union!

Long winded way of saying thank you! :D

Auuuhhh Xahsan and Crystal are just ADORABLE TOGETHER *squees*

Last draw Crystal was me as a child, before they thought of putting leashes on children >w>;

@Pokemontrainergigi: np, your art is astonishing.

I think they started paying attention to my penchant for wandering when they found me hanging off the gutters of our roof ewe;;

@WiispNightmare: Haha, how even? XD Do you have second story windows that give you easy access to the roof? (what, I haven't ran around on my roof like that before, noooo)

@Pokemontrainergigi: Honestly? I don't remember. We moved away from that house when I was about three, and they haven't a clue.
I think I remember an uncle saying something about an attic window that I could have gotten out through.

I tend to get myself into situations that nobody can figure out how I got into =w=;;
