Nightmaleon-- Hemophobia by RedtheGamr Nightmaleon-- Hemophobia by RedtheGamr
A little something I did for a contest. :) A participant was to draw the design they were interested in, and this bugger caught my eye right at the beginning.

I absolutely hope to win him, as I've already got plans to use him in some RPs and stories I have, as I do with all the characters I adopt.

So this won't be my only piece to submit of these beauties, I've also taken a liking to a couple more, and I'll be doing more of these lineless works asap. With a little luck, I might be able to score one of each type of these species-- they're just too cool!

Total Time: 10+ Days

Species belongs to =Taluns

A bit of info for this character-- effective only if I win of course:

Name: Serkhan
Age: 8
Gender: Male
Bio: Due to his albinoism, he was a liability to his group and family, only rarely capturing prey to eat due to the fact that he was always so easily seen. This is also the main reason that he was one day captured by an intrepid adventurer, who saw fit to give the Nightmaleon to a family member of his, as a sort of pet. Unwilling to live the life of a dog, but a little reluctant to turn away at the chance of such an easy life, Serkhan, which is a name given to him by his new owners, has to begin adapting to a lifestyle that is entirely foreign to him.

Ooh this is very nice! :D You're the first one to draw one in their natural form, without markings c:

You chose quite and interesting pose, the leaping motion helps us easily see his body/design but is also nice to look at! I love his little backstory, and the fact you've taken his albinism as a hindrance to his hunting ability (Because that would make sense of course XD) and how he's torn between an easy or free life. Very interesting!

Thanks a bunch for entering, and best of luck! :D

I figured I wouldn't draw in the markings if I wasn't going to draw it hunting or scaring something. XD He's just jumping gaily about. :D

Oh, thank you! ^^ I haven't done a lineless picture in so long, so for this one, I wanted to make it a nice pose, show off the design/species' litheness. :)And yes! I'm glad you noticed that! There should be a reason why albinos in Nightmaleons are so rare, right? Maybe it'd be like animals irl, where their skin pigments impede their abilities, so they can't survive as long. Of course, that's just my theory.

And thank you! I don't see many entries for him, so... *Fingers crossed!*

Yup! Truth be told, they only use their colour changing scarcely, like you said, for hunting or scaring people >:3

Yup, that's true! In the wild, they probably wouldn't last long, unless they kept up a constant camouflage. But that would get pretty tiring after a while :c

Heehee, more people said they would enter for him, but I don't know if all of them will remember to enter xD So again, good luck!

Awww, nature keeps all those albinos down. :(

Lmao, I just saw a bunch of sketches a person did for #4-- looks like they're goin' for quantity. I almost feel a little embarrassed that I've only turned in one drawing. XD
