Disir full body by Tyshea Disir full body by Tyshea
Some illustrations and concepts for my and Bee’s fantasy world!

I've been holding onto this one for a while, oops! Finally cleaned it up this morning and decided to post him

This cute fella is Elliel's buddy, Disir. He's a Warg, or Dire Wolf, which is a common mount used in the North for fast travel. 
Like the humanoid races (see bottom of artist's comments), I wanted all the animals in this world to be referencing popular high-fantasy creatures (wargs, dragons, unicorns etc), but with a twist. For the wargs, they’re a mix of wolves and deer. The females grow antlers and the males don’t, which I want to draw soon

I'm admittedly not very good at creature designs, but practice makes perfect ahhh ( ; ▽ ; )ノ

I love that the females have antlers - would they shed them? Are they for the defense of pups? It would make sense! But if it's for the defense of pups, they wouldn't have any real need to shed them yearly . . .

The antlers are definitely for defending pups, and their pack in general. I was actually considering having matriarchs having big antlers, and the younger beta females having smaller antlers (like two-prongs?)
Not sure about shedding yet, but thanks for the good questions!

Ooh, the older matrairchs have the larger antlers?  Makes me wonder if pregnancy triggers a little more horn growth each time - that'd mean the large racks are a good sign of fertility! Picturing the younger betas with two-prong antlers just really, really fits.
You're welcome! I'm glad they helped bring up more ideas!

OKAY BUT LIKE THE WOLF DEER MIX IS THE COOLEST SHIT YOU MIXED PREY WITH ITS NATURAL PREDATOR I MEAN COME ON. I love love love this mix the deer legs and feets but it's so fucking creeps still too. AND OKAY THE ANTLER THING I AM REALLY EXCITED FOR WHEN YOU DRAW THAT AND SHOW US THAT BECAUSE GODDAMNIT IT'S GONNA BE GREAT. I love your story developing and how you develop every inch of everything, it just makes me so happy. From animals to culture to everything I just.

I actually mixed design elements from coyotes and greyhounds too! It helps with that creepy-skinny look and works really well with deer legs :'D

BUT YES AH. I really enjoy world building man, I don't think you understanddd <333

Pardon me for saying so, but they almost look too skinny and stick-like to support a rider.

well, the legs are based on deer-legs, which always look too skinny to hold up anything LOL
