    It's spring! I really like seeing things sprout and grow, and especially when it flowers and/or bears fruit. Metamorphosis.

  1. From the album Natural History of Roshar

    Shin chicken after 4000 years of evolution on Roshar would look.... not a whole lot different, if it's like Earth chicken evolution. I thought about going nuts and make it featherless and reverting back to a mini raptor, but I kind of didn't want to paint an ugly uncooked Thanksgiving dinner... So in the end it's back to being a good o' fashion chick'in - lightning color! There, so new, so shin XD

    The greater skyeel family! Can't tell if it's a happy family or not, but definitely a hardcore one. Are skyeel eggs edible? Yes. If you can get your hands on one... and still keep said hands attached.

    This is a size chart showing each skyeel specie's size in relevance to a human :D
  4. From the album Natural History of Roshar

    The greater skyeel display sexual dimorphism in both in color and body size. The female is considerably larger, just like eagles and cassowary on Earth. Greater skyeel eats just about anything, including each other. They do not make good pets due to their aggressiveness, but that never stopped certain people from trying.

    The greater skyeel is a voracious and aggressive predator in the skyeel family. Their powerful muscles gives them bursts of speed when needed. Their size and weight prevents them from diving for prey on the ground, so they often go for airborne prey, or sweep prey off trees, rooftops, hill/rock tops.

    The Lesser Skyeel, as well as the Greater, display sexual dimorphism in which the sexes appear different. The Lesser Skyeel female and the young are both camouflaged to maximize survival, while the male is fancy to get a date. Instead of an eel, the lesser skyeel is based on lauch fish and a bit of gold fish for derpy look. It is 26cm long, the size of a wooden soup ladle.

    This here veers into some serious artistic licenses, lol! I split the official skyeel description into two - the moray look for the Greater, and the color and pattern for the Common. As I mentioned before, it started as one skyeel, but then I went berserk and made three species. The Lesser Skyeel is comparatively smaller than the other two, but still about the size of a Blue Jay. ... I probably should have included the size chart in this upload too, huh? It'll come with the Greater Skyeel batch. So whereas the Common Skyeel is the equivalent of a seagull or petrel, the Lesser Skyeel is the equivalent of a backyard bird, such as the Blue Jay or the Northern Cardinal, or sparrows. ... aw I should've designed a 'bird feeder'. Too late. As such a small species, their color and pattern need to blend in with the environment well. Without illustrating the environment, I used a collage of what I think Rosharan landscape is based on to help with this part.

  9. @The Kraken's Daughter Thank you! Honestly I didn't know swordfish doesn't have scales either until I started looking at them for this. I just always thought their scales must be just small or something to not see any in photos. We do and we learn!
  10. @Lyraina Thank you! @Ark1002 I'm available for hire, yes
  11. @Lyraina Next time we use croissant dough instead and make it with almond paste ]:)
  12. @Ark1002 It's a braided bread with an extra big knob at the end for head, and the wings and fins are also extra dough attached to the body. I think you can definitely make this by looking up braided bread tutorial We used yeast dough. @Wyndlerunner Thank you! It took many days of brain churning to get to these ideas, after getting past all the other more obvious ones like banner, inn sign, etc. @BookishOcelot Mmmm~ that sounds delicious already! Yes, somebody please bake 'em and make a new album please! "Edible Roshar" @Lunamor @Use the Falchion Lol, imagine Lyft finally grown up, and becomes the world famous chef from all her experience and stolen recipes XD

    I had a lot of fun letting my imagination run wild with how else a common skyeels would show up in people's culture: What would skyeel be like as food? How big is a Common Skyeel anyway? Is it steak-size? What would a high-end restaurant premium cut skyeel steak look like? This skyeel bun is inspired by a braided dragon bread my girlfriend and I made recently. All it needs are a pair of wing fins, and some cookie back fins, and there’s a skyeel! Where else would a commonly known animal like the skyeel show up in people culture? Toys, of course! This is a simple wooden toy, lovingly hand-carved by a grandfather for his grand children.
