A little compilation of various anthro sketches I have made the past few months, including some not-yet-introduced characters, such as William and Maloki. William is a fennec fox-red squirrel hybrid (though the fox features are much more dominant) from the same town as Elias is. He's an odd-eyed merchant, specializing in small and rare goods for a high price. He and Elias have known each other for a long time and are around the same age (end twenties, begin thirties). To say they're friends is an overstatement, but William does sometimes offer items at a discount, in exchange for one of Elias' creations or information. Earliesr concept art of William was on my Tumblr: [link]
Maloki is a hybrid beyond recognition. There may be some dog, lemur, rabbit and fox in it, but no one really knows. Maloki stands out with his/her (no one really knows his gender for sure either) white fur and black stripes. S/he's a little thief, living on the streets and occasionally works as a spy in exchange for food or coin. Still a youngster, around 11 years old, Maloki never tells about his past. The whereabouts of their family, if they are still alive, are unknown. Maloki is incredibly quick, s/he cannot read or write and hardly speaks, but makes up for it with agility and speed. I had a test animation of Maloki up on my Tumblr too, but never finished it: [link]
The other creatures on here are mostly random, made for fun and to fill up the imaginary streets in Elias' town, haha. I do really like the squirrel girl though, I think I'll keep her as well. A sassy Scottish red squirrel girl, I like that. Then we also have a young deer lady, a very insecure little rabbit, two different mice (one is kind of a shady character, the other with the head cloth may be working at the port/on a ship) and a concept for one of the nobility: a lion-ermine (ermion?), combining the royal manes and noble look of the lion with the luxurious fur and ferocity of the ermine. Not sure if he'll keep this look though. Making up hybrids for this little world is so much fun, I have no idea where I'd want to go, story wise, but man, am I enjoying creating these little characters!
