Ok, I’m going to be tossing between Cali and Lucis for a bit. Really getting into little details, deciding what needs work and such. I think Cali is surprisingly going to be the more complicated of the two since he has a few more features.

I must not fear.

Refining Lucis and Cali’s true forms. They are meant to be pretty simple elementals, so no crazy attire. But their skin could be more interesting. Cali has a shadow body, but I think pieces of his skin would be lighter, almost like a broken gargoyle. Lucis is light, and I think her body would even be slightly translucent. But I think a gold, sleek, body conforming armor would be a good way to mimic Cali. Lucis has the orderly look, Cali is chaos (even though their personalities are opposite.) And the quick Ecco on the bottom is just for scale – the duo is small, but I think that fits their race/personalities more.

Second Exile – Sketch

It is really about time to make a nice polished Ecco portrait. Thinking it should include her mentors, Lucis and Cali. This pose is a bit stiff, but I keep seeing this sort of composition. Also messed with some kind of metal head adornment for formal attire – needs to be something sleek but still fit her style…


Bird studies – specifically birds know for fishing. Because that seemed like a good basis for a dragon that relies on feet and mouth to manipulate objects. Cali, having skeletal wings, has the advantage of being able to use his wings as giant awkward arms. Poor Lucis is a bit left out there, but he uses more long range attacks anyway.

Young dragon

Ecco and Cali judging the inferior light dragon Lucis. They always worked great as a duo, leaving Lucis the odd one out. Well, until Cali is gone at least, but even then it’s a weird you-can’t-replace-him relationship.
