the moe-est of senseis
gonna be putting all my doodles and WIPs over on this instagram thing because it’s a lot easier to take pictures via phone than to scan everything (also i have trust issues when it comes to uploading from the tumblr app ok)
since i have virtually no followers there i wont feel bad about spamming it unlike on here へ(｡•ิ‿ -〃)
last night i had this dream that it was raining, which is always kind of a miracle in arizona unless it’s a monsoon season
so i (? i’m not really sure because my dreams are usually in the perspective of different characters) was playing outside in the rain, and people were making fun of me about it, then i meet this strange guy and we talk about ??? things idk i think he was a fairly prolific musician or something, he was really eccentric and he went along with anything as long as it seemed fun and interesting.
so we agree that the rain is kinda magical and we get this strange idea to form a magic troupe of sorts, where we look for magic and spread it to the people or something cheesy like that. bottom line is, he ends up wearing this really garish costume and we go around trying to recruit people to join our group. the rain stops while we head out. i thought we would have some kind of fantasy adventure or whatever but we end up at this incredibly shady convenience store with people selling questionable items, it still had normal convenience store stuff but there was also this free market-type thing going on, people were selling all their junk and some homeless people were staying in the aisles.
we tried to recruit people and it failed miserably, we tried to recruit people in other places and it still failed miserably, because our idea was too unrealistic and weird
after that i woke up.
even though it’s fictional, i still kinda wonder if they were ever able to find the magic that they were looking for in the end.
caught up to haikyuu heck yeah
more monster world background info stuff, probably confusing b/c it’s nearly 11am now and im tired as shit oh wow i should sleep soon
Yan the bird nerd (name probably subject to change)
My bird anatomy is terrible and I still can’t decide whether or not to base Yan’s wings/tail on a swallow or a long-tailed tit, because apparently “Yan” could mean swallow bird or w/e
Yan is an heir to something, I’m still not sure if it’s going to be big like inheriting the position to be the ruler of the entire avian species, or small like becoming the CEO of some kind of wing cleaning company. Yan has a cape and a crown, and that’s basically as far as I’ve gotten. Xe is friendly and gets along with everyone, but remains distant for the most part, the exception being xyr best friend: the demon kid. They go on semi-cool adventures.
The avian/human society is fairly scattered throughout the monster world, mainly because of the traveling/migration benefits and all that. There are a lot of avian states and territories, but the largest population lives in the main continent. They have a capital city and a government, though their government is pretty fickle and has a tendency to shift from a democracy to a dictatorship to a monarchy, etc. etc. they try to have a centralized government but everyone knows it’s more of an anarchy. Avian/human children are taught in special schools for the first few years of their lives to ensure they become well-acquainted with their flying abilities and bird biology. They go to regular schools when they’ve mastered that, but there are some classes/PE courses set specifically for avian hybrids, they’re not a necessity but most students prefer schools that have them. Bird kid puberty is tough.
Their primary habitats have shifted from trees to more modern dwellings, like houses and apartments. Though most still prefer spending time on the trees, it’s what feels the most natural to them. Tree houses are gaining popularity, and are replacing nests pretty quickly.
When they’re born the wings are pretty small, it looks kind of creepy until the ages 2-4, where they actually start to look like bird wings. Some have the ability to make their wings disappear/shrink (Yan being one of them) through monster world ~*magic*~, and most clothes for avian hybrids have the ability to kinda phase through wings and tails, again through ~*magic*~. Normal clothes have to be cut and modified, usually adding zippers.
Sometimes people are born with other bird body parts, like bird legs or beaks. It gets a bit gruesome when the parts don’t replace the human counterpart, so people can grow a set of bird legs and a set of human legs, or have a beak and a mouth simultaneously somehow.
it’s 4am and i cant stop drawing bikes
literally the first thing that came to mind when he evolved
