Latest Update: January 24, 2013 Edited on January 27, 2013 (character size change)
~~~~~Graphic Novel: Genesis
I edited about two markings (face and neck) and altered the light brown coloration in his ear/paw pad. The rest & details will be added later haha! ^-^ Enjoy~!
Lots and lots of images were referenced for this to figure out proportions and such! In the end I made a pose myself since I couldn't really find references of the pose due to lack of images on the Caspian Tiger!
Also some reminders:-For an accurate size comparison to the other Genesis characters, please visit this: [link]
-His paw pad is the same light brown tone in his ears though it's actually shown on his paws, I understand it's small and fairly hard to see xD
-His tongue color is actually a light red/orange ish pink I use for a lot of my drawings when doing tongues, his teeth are just pure white. I'll update this with more details later though haha!Background: (details excluded to them either not being worked out yet or to be released as the story/novel progresses) Lacus has no known parents or family members. He chooses/has the physical image of a Caspian tiger though he is almost triple in size as one. Although his age is unclear it's estimated he's been around for the equivalent of a few thousand (5,000-20,000? maybe more) human years though his personality at heart still reflects that of a 27 year old human. He belongs to a family of god-like beings that embody abilities within them allowing them to control certain aspects of certain things; Lacus's being water.
After a trajic event (details excluded), a human girl of around 21 _____ (insert name here, lol), ends up questioning her own reality and the two end up traveling together in search of the meaning of everything.
His story is not one of lust or love really, focusing more on sci-fi. Lacus can choose which physical form he wants to appear in- including humans.
A very hard and personal bond forms between the human girl___ and Lacus....(?)
Sneak Peak into the Future:
He has a son, named Prius, who's a white (Caspian?) tiger and who's small, overly curious, companian _____.
Prius has no known mother (?) and is rebellious by nature. He goes on his own adventure (and stars in a future novel as a sequel to Genesis).
More details not worked out/excluded.
The story behind his creation: Haha well honestly this isn't the most impressive 'burst of inspiration after long thought' that you might think xD I was browsing a school encyclopedia and as always I flip to any animal section, this time the Tiger. I came across the Caspian Tiger and found them such beautiful animals I had to sketch one!! Obviously designing one as my intention.
After looking them up in google in an attempt to find refs for anatomy, I found out they died out in the 1950's. A rather devastating result
I've drawn him a few times for #AnimalAwareness but his main role will be one of the two main stars in Genesis :3 Enjoy, and happy reading <3 I look forward to releasing the story!
