Arguably the most populous species of Thur-Trolls throughout the Three Realms, the Cave Thur-Troll distinguished itself from its kin via a thick, grey, stony hide not unlike that of an elephant or rhinoceros. Their hides are coated in a spotted pattern and are sparse with fur, unlike most of their kin, due to centuries of evolving to live in their dank, slimy underground habitat. Cave Thur-Trolls rarely venture above ground, and when they do it usually isn’t long before huntsmen and bounty hunters alike come out of the woodwork to lop off their heads and protect nearby farms and townships.
Remember me Tumblr?! I know, long time no post. For Mermay this year I was inspired by Tom Bancroft’s Mermay 2021 prompt #12 Dragon Mermaid. So I went with these. I was thinking of the Jiaoren of Chinese mythology, aka dragon merfolk. I’ve also been continuing my Dragon Bestiary posts. If you are interested in seeing more be sure to follow me on Instagram: @ vincentcoviello, I am most active there.
A lone creature, known simply as a Star Searcher, must return home.
Still can’t believe this is my final ever project for college, feels like I started my first year yesterday! I combined stop motion and hand drawn animation along with some digitally drawn backgrounds, it was a really fun experience and I learned a heck of a lot haha. Definitely more interested in stop motion now too! More puppets in the future?
Ghosts are described as the souls of the dead who remain in the physical plane after death due to some incomplete task or purpose required of them in life. Among the most powerful and dangerous of the varieties of ghosts encountered across Mir are the Ghostlords. These beings have achieved a state of sublime awareness of their state as an incorporeal being, and rather than pursue the completion of their earthly task, they have instead pursued power. Over unknowable periods of time these ghosts have gained considerable knowledge of magick which they can still manipulate in death, making them particularly dangerous foes for adventurers who go traipsing around barrows and tombs.
