The multi humanoid race concept reminds me of D and D. These are really amazing too.
thesilverfarie Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013
These concepts are amazing!! When I saw the different species I instantly noticed hints of dungeons and dragons!! :D

Thanks! Funny, though, because the only remote inspiration I took from D&D was that the Feldspartons are Dwarf-like.

Is this going to be a game? Is it already a game?
The-Knick Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Professional Digital Artist
It's going to be a comic. But, since I'm better at designing games than comics, I'm designing it like an MMORPG. I do have the idea to make it a game if the comic is successful. 

So theoretically... yes.

This is amazingly impressive. Your imagination never ceases to bewilder me.

Gah, I love seeing all the thought that each race was give. They all have unique characteristics that has something for everyone. I can already sorta imagine ways to play as each race. I love them all but I am particularly fond of Argorons and Branglons. Amazing work as always.

I am very curious to see how you see each race's "Capital" as most Fantasy worlds have a main city for each race. I can sorta see each race's theme be displayed throughout a city which I think is really awesome that you can make them that distinct that others can see them as well. But what I really wanna see is how you would envision them, seeing how you are the creator. Even though I haven't seen you do much landscaping and architecture, the little bit I see you do definitely have some charm to it. I dunno how high on the list that is for you but I would love to see it.
