I’ve been sketching a lot recently and decided to try making quick sketches of original characters. Due to my previous issues with perfectionism I would rarely finish an entirely original image, this made all of the character seem intimidating. With these sketches they become less so and let me move one.
I’m really happy to get them all out.
First three humans are the mainest main characters, second image is of of a flock of Mogut (Mogut Zli (translates to ‘evil wind’ I think) are born when a woman carries a child for 7 years 0.0, sporting a strong tail and dragon-like wings) as I imagine them.
Jela is a young herbalist/witch, Ruža is her mentor, Lada and Željka are together and take care of the Mogut flock, Orkan is Željka’s son.

Original story, original characters. Hopefully I managed 12th century Croatian clothes (this is coastal Croatia mind you).
I might put up a coloured version.
