So a while ago we decided to make our most popular image into an original character.
She started off as a custom Yu-Gi-Oh orica card commission that we did for a customer. Her design was based off of the card “Baby Trigon”.
What started off so simply as thinking up a name for her, turned into a creative journey of a lifetime! Not only did we give her a name, but I also thought up of an entire race of creatures based off of her.
We have thought up everything. Everything from what her race looks like, to what they eat, where they live, who they worship, when and how they mate, how they care for their young, and even how they get along and relate with other potential races.
Our race is named the “Yuu”.
This drawing is of an adult female Yuu, as well as an adult male Yuu. The female in the image is of our new Original Character, and her name is “Yuumii”
Over the next few months, the further development and illustration of the Yuu race will be what I am devoting my artistic time towards. By the end of it all, we are going to be self publishing a full artbook that describes and illustrates the race in full detail, complete with sketches as well as full color illustrations, all that Illustrate the behaviors and lives of the Yuu Race. The book will be for ages 18+ and will contain a good amount adult oriented content in it.
The Yuu Artbook will be geared towards art appreciators, as well as role-players. Upon the release of our new artbook, we will even open up a special page geared towards the furry/rp community that wishes to create/illustrate their own Yuu characters.
We hope to have a huge following of people who enjoy the Yuu race and who want to have characters of their own created/commissioned. We even would love to see fan drawings of people’s own Yuu characters!
To put things simply… we WANT people to use this race that we are creating for them. The Yuu race is not only something that we are doing for pure creative enjoyment, but also a way for us to spread our idea to others who just want to have fun along with us.
I want to save most of the background info on the Yuu Race for another time, However for those confused as to why the male Yuu in the image is a large Draconian creature, and why the female is more humanoid… allow me to explain.
-Upon birth, both male and females of the Yuu race resemble small humanoid babies. However as the males begin to grow and mature, they slowly begin to develop more beastlike/draconian features, until when they finally reach adulthood, they resemble a full beast.-
