Itchy by beastofoblivion Itchy by beastofoblivion
Took a break for some stress relief.

Nhyra and Grandioze kept me company for a good long while last Thursday while I was streaming Ahk's commission. At some point they asked me about bipedal Relk because there's one in the sketchbook I have out, so they got to hear some of that story.

Anyways, if any of my other creatures have srsly shiny genes besides the Locks, it'd be the Relk. They remind me of everything that has to do with swimming - goggles, caps, kickboards, paddles, waterbottles, pull buoys, awesomely colored Speedos, outdoor swim meets, and being wet. And swimming. Every day all day, indoor and out. In short, they basically sum up the entirety of my swimming life/experience. Which makes me infinitely happy, and which is why I love them.


Anyways, this is the Relk from the book, sittin on his butt being itchy.

Do the relks come from the same world as the lockjaws? Or is it another world?

Nice picture by the way. :D

I know it's been some while since anyone posted a comment, but... this guy needs some shorts and a loud Hawaiian shirt. And a surfboard. Looks like perfect "surfer dude" matterial, to me.

Lots of practice. By the way, I see you are using some of my old artwork as your icon. What's up with that?

Oh, I'm sorry, I just like the picture and plus I really didn't know what picture to use as my avatar. I'm sorry!

haha, I love the casual look to him XD
The colour is really nice too, and the shiny skin is really good too.
He really does look like the epitome of all things water related.
A wonderful type of swimming creature, he looks great ^_^ nice job :heart:
