There, done traveling for this summer. I won’t even try to scroll my dashboard back to where it was two weeks ago when I left. o_o”
A new texture pack by yours truly.
In the current TPP game they called the charmander “!taj11yygaaa” and it sounds like TAYGAA = tiger. No one can convince me otherwise. >D
So, it happened that I went through my wardrobe and noticed a distinct lack of candy coloured dragon t-shirts. With the mighty wacom pen in my hand, I set out to fix this issue.

BEST DAY EVER. I AM IN A DAZE. SO MANY ANIMALS. Animals are the god damn best. 10/10
Ever since yesterday I’ve had this weird lump-feeling in my throat which makes me feel like I have to swallow all the time and it’s horribly distracting. u_u
Anyway, this character keeps getting redesigns and I’m still not satisfied. Maybe I just have to give up trying to be “faithful” to the old design.
What does the term “original species” mean exactly?
I may be wrong as English isn’t my first language and all, but I’ve understood that “Original species” means a fictional species that didn’t exist untill someone made it up, like it’s someone’s original idea.
Apparently in DA there was some kid, who uploaded a sheet of their original species, which was a colorful dog, with a dollhouse instead of a torso, pretty surreal and all, where someone left a comment saying “An Original Species is a creature that is completely made up by the owner. It has anatomy that resembles no real life animal and is completely made up from head to toe." and continued by listing ref sheets of other people’s species "since you seem a bit new to this .-.” (one of which looked pretty canine-ish to me, another being apparently inspired by tropical fish, etc), including a link to the first part of my Constructing Triaformica, which is how I found out about this. Apparently this comment got the first artist to delete their ref sheet.
I might be overthinking this, but I feel kinda bad that my work has been used to discourage someone’s creativity. (Specially since Triaformica ARE based on real life
animalsorganisms, dozens of those, from slime mucus and praying mantis to horses and kangaroos.) And what really matters to me, that I want most from my work is to inspire other people to have fun and find their own creativity. :(
Please, don’t use my work as a way to tell people they’re doing creativity wrong. I want people to have fun.
I’ve always used “original species” as a term for a series of creatures that have recurring features (or which somehow else belong together) that were produced by the artist themselves. Original then receiving the meaning of “created and maintained by the artist” rather than being something 100% unique and never thought of as a pure concept.
