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.
