So. I'm doing a sorta mass-upload of all my artwork to my my new Inkbunny account, so let's start out with a pair of new species that have a symbiotic relationship with one another I made a while back.
On the left we have a Nesphyr (Nessie + zephyr), and on the right is a Cubixie (kyuubi + pixie).
Nesphyr live high in the alpines and mountains; They very rarely touch the ground and love to fly, their bodies are covered with a special small down coat and protect them from the cold, eir wings have larger, much more refined down feathers to enable smooth and easy flights.
Cubixies live in thick forests just at the mountain base. They are quick, agile and flighty creatures who are resilient and resourceful, and can climb and jump from tree to tree with ease. They live in small communities in hidden groves of the forests, which is sometimes in open caves.
A Nesphyr's diet consist of berries and fruit that only grow in the forest, but because of their open lifestyle in the skies, they can't manuver through the thick and closed spaces of the forest and they often crash into trees and hurt themselves. The mountains they live in contain ores and minerals the Cubixies need to build their homes and tools, but their poor climbers and their paws can't grip the rocks very well.
The Cubixies help guide the Nesphyr to the fruits they eat, and in exchange the Nesphyr help the Cubixies up the mointains for the minerals. This has led both creatures to live in a symbiotic relationship, and it's gotten to where they can't live without the other.
I'm going to do a full guide of both of them later, but right now I just wanted to get the concept across. I'm really happy on how they came out though!
I need to draw these little guys again.
