Eogain Ref by Shinerai Eogain Ref by Shinerai
So I've always wanted to create characters in my headworld modeled after my leopard geckos, and I wanted them to be the same species because I do plan to breed them later in their lives. Unfortunately, I can't have cute byondi characters of my leos because Riese has a face deformity that would. . . be extremely disturbing on a humanoid. Imagine that the flesh around your nostrils, including the part of your lip below your nostrils was completely missing. Yeah. . . might be hard to pick up a cute boyfriend with that.

So I made little leopard gecko dragons!!! I designed the physiology (and drew the body image in this reference) some time last month or something and decided to day I'd throw some color on it, a face doodle and some text and then call it a reference for Eogain.

The species is called chylgun (pronounced kalgen) so some basic information about them is here. I know the text is hard to read but I couldn't stop writing it and ran out of room, sorry. These guys have been domesticated by one of my byondi grass tribes and I would love to draw them soon. Some time before I die.

A Riese reference will be coming also some time before I die (that's as quickly as I can promise things to happen these days, sorry).

Art and all this stuff mentioned here :iconshinerai: my face.

I really love this piece! your subtle lines and marks really bring him to life...and that hair looks so sexy! I am planning on designing a fluffy reptilian species, I was wondering if I could get your permission to reference slightly from Eogain's head? I love the shape and the curve of the mouth :aww: If not I completely understand!

I don't mind if you reference the head; I only made subtle changes to my interpretation of a leopard gecko head.

When I saw this, I was reminded me of a conversation a year or so ago about leos and breeders during one of your streams. First time I really came to know about them....

I'm glad you're still drawing, actually. I can imagine it's becoming difficult to find time for it nowadays! Lol keep up the awesome work! one of these days you'll see me more on live/skype whatever MSFT is up to these days. 

For now there's too much to sort out, at least for me. Uuuughhh~
