ga - peesh emotions by xxdhxx ga - peesh emotions by xxdhxx
I was having so much fun with the Pėsh designs that I went just a widdle bit further. This is another ref sheet in case i want to do something more grandiose with him/her in the future.

Also, his/her giddy face is fucking terrifying. Nothing with that many pointy-fuck little teeth should smile like that. Its right up there with how I feel about the under-carriage of horseshoe crabs.

Actually. I'm wondering if he might have any biolumenscience. (I totally misspelled that). I can see him shifting colors when he's angry, kind of the way our skin flushes as blood rises to the surface. Also makes me wonder if his eyes wouldn't roll back slightly- the way a shark's does when it's attacking. Just piddling out my thoughts here.

The Giddy emotion makes me wanna go buy him plushies, and snowcones, and tell him how freaking adorable he is.

S/He does have luminescence, actually! (It was going to be a secret, but you beat me to it. [link] :3) I started doing a few of them and the problem I was having is that the spots I was trying to line them up with (especially around the ends of the tendrils& along the edge of the frill) makes him look like one of the Nav'i from avatar, so I was a little squeemish on making that canon yet. Not like the Avatar movie came before, you know, thousands of years of evolution on earth, but.

hehe, I almost, *almost* did one called 'didney worl' and put a little mickey-ears cap on him.

*dies laughing* Oh my God, I'd have to have a plushie of that if he had the lil Mickey ears. But so far as the luminescence... Why not have it change colors? Kind of like the way the jellyfish does when it undulates. I'm not saying make him/her a rainbow, but part of the luminescence could be tied into her/his emotion and underwater communication.

Normally in a fan-made character, I'd completely go against color changing for mood- but this has a sound biological basis and for that, it doesn't make it supah-speshul, it makes sense.

At least to me.

*laughs* This character has been around for like, less than a month and I'm already trying to sabotage it with inside jokes. *snort* i dunno, I dont have any 'cute characters' to really speak of -- cute in a precious, tiny sense at least.

I like the idea of bio luminescence largely in part because I love the 'Deep Ocean' episodes of BBC's Blue Planet and Planet Earth, and I do think it would fit with the character design. It'll get into there eventually, but I'm going to have to think through it since most animals that have it use it to either gather in prey or ward off enemies. Maybe s/he can glow when s/he's scared or something? Or flicker? I'm not sure. I'll hammer out specs in between my eleventy bajillion other projects. *cries*

I'm super happy Pėsh is getting such a good reception, though! Warms muh lil' heart right up!

You say "fucking terrifying," I say "excruciatingly adorable." Just wanna squish that widdle face between my palms and kiss it good. I guess this is proof of what a weirdo I am. I love these color differentials; they're not extreme, but just enough that someone would notice a change.

hehehe! Little pokey things sort of scare me. Like, I love little fuzzy things but the idea of thier mouth full of dirty, sharp little teeth makes my OCD skyrocket. I hope Pėsh knows how to brush them fuckers good!

and thank you! :rose: I was a little worried at first that the colors I chose weren't enough to really make a difference, but when I allowed myself to play with them a bit here I was like 'ah, I'll be okay i think.'

Ahh, color shifting to express emotion~ There's something about that I really like, like a mimic octopus or something. Such an adorable bugger. :>

*nods* Pėsh gonna change colors a bit when its emotional. I'm glad you like him/her so far! I'm still on sort of a 'stumpy cute things high', so I'm riding it out with some junk art in the margins, heh!
