Heth - Toby's Guide to Body Language by HanMonster Heth - Toby's Guide to Body Language by HanMonster
Aw, man, this question turned out a lot more involving than I thought it would! I was determined to get this thing done tonight, though, and i'm really happy with how all the blurbage came out! This'll serve double duty as both a question response and a little insight into how falsicorns behave physically; I even got to hash out some (mostly platonic) intimacy gestures!

Aw man this really was a ton of fun. I can't thank Wyrd enough for coming up with such good brain fodder.

Enjoy!

Is it weird if I think the horn maw thing looks kinda like an ichthyosaur mouth?

Very interesting character. I just the love the mouth/eye-like horn that opens and closes and the intimate gesture falsicorns display with them. So they don't have any eyes in the skull? Again, really love this character design; it's so unique!

ajsldfkjsaf That last one...!!! *melts all over* That is so sweet!!! Man, now I want to draw friendlies between Kayahan and Toby. :heart: :heart: :heart:

The rest of it is really awesome. I like how they follow the same emoting "rules" found in real animals, with the teeth-baring and leg-stiffness and tail positions. That's really cool that they don't tuck their tails when scared, and I love the pincer-crossing, so sweet. Great job!

Awwwr, I'm so glad you like it, Broski-- and I have to say, drawing Kayahan was a lot more ridiculously fun than it should've been (I tried my best to approximate what his part in the gesture would be like without breaking what I'd read on Paski too horribly, though I'm sorry if it still isn't quite spot on).

I seriously would love getting to RP the two together in Heth proper since drawing this, I will confess. In my head I think they'd just get along swimmingly, what with being fairly alien-looking temperature sensitive ungulate bros.

... Plus that's more excuse to draw silly interactions for them. /SHAMELESS

Even puppies can look like terrible little eldritch abominations when they're snappy. It is the GREAT MAGIC OF NATURE. 8D

Thank you for the kind words! <3
