Desert BR by Slugbox Desert BR by Slugbox
Blackriver and Nellko are just as ambiguous a species as Cteno, when you think about it. They look a lot more normal though, so I guess they cause less confusion.

Their homeworld is pretty much 100% desert, since someone came and took all of the water. Their skimpy attire helps them deal with the heat better. BR wears a shade when she’s here, or in other bright and hot areas. Nellko doesn’t need one since her hair and ears are so big.

BR’s cigars serve a communication function in the form of complex smoke signals. She’d be responsible for communicating with smokers in other nomadic groups across long distances. But it’s a lost art at this point, since there’s so few of her species left anyway, and even fewer who stay on the planet. She still likes to smoke though.

I thought this came out nice, and I got some REALLY sexy new paper in, so there’s 13x19 prints AND LTR prints up for sale on the store! [LINK]

Blackriver is probably my favorite character, and this drawing is so sexy!

Desert world, huh? No wonder I got an awesome Trigun-style vibe from this. The effects on the clouds look great, and the smoke does look very complex.

I like how you can barely see the flames going up her arms, starting at the elbows. I also like the background information you're giving about Blackriver and Nellko. :)

I'm really smitten by the Blackriver and Nellko story...I live in a desert (American Southwest)...so this twist on a western archetype character is fantastic and sexy :)

I know, I know. But casually i find it being called just "BR". But meh. You get the idea. Just with Blackriver...being all, well, Blackriver i find the coincidence pretty funny (and gross in some ways...).

How do you manage to churn out a drawing practically everyday? Is your blood just a cocktail of Monster, Red-Bull and triple-shot espresso?
