Natani Grooms his Winter Coat by Twokinds Natani Grooms his Winter Coat by Twokinds
I've wanted for a long time to draw Natani with his winter coat. It's something I need to get some practice on before it actually appears in the comic. So here he is, trying to brush down the fur. During the wintertime, the chest poof becomes a full-fledged mane, and he gets extra fur along his shoulders, elbows, and knees. I also wanted to put extra fur around his ankles, but I couldn't make it look the way I wanted it to, so I left it the same.

The background was entirely experimental. I wanted to do something different, so I sorta modeled it off of Asian architecture. I used paper walls that show some light through, so you can see the bare branches. I wanted to give the impression that it was wintertime, without actually showing the snow or scenery. I know the floor seems a little too shiny, almost as though you'd slip if you tried walking on it. xD I did my best to tone it down reasonably, but I really wanted to have at least some reflection. I actually did redraw the reflected image, it's not just a copy flipped horizontally.

Anyway, hope you guys aren't too sick of seeing Natani all the time. I swear, I'm going to start drawing other characters besides Natani and Keith in the future.

Yep!  Though that mental link with her brother, makes her think otherwise.

Natani identifies as male.  You should always use a person's preferred pronouns, regardless of how they appear.

Just a tip, to make the floor look a little less shiny, try making the reflection a little blurry. This makes the wood look less smooth.

Try it!

Mmmmm more or less xD Is quite complicated. She was born like a woman but she got hit by a spell that ripped of some parts of her soul. She couldn't be cured so his brother volunteered for combining their souls so he can fill the 'holes' that the soul of Natani has. That's because she feels like a man but at the same time she's atracted by Keith, who is a man, so she feels in those cases more womanly. I told you, it is complicated xD

Something like that. She had to pose as a male to get into an assasin's guild with her borther Zen. Then on a mission her soul was shattered by a spell, and some of it was lost. Through a magic ritual, her brother's soul was coppied into the missinng places. One of the things that was coppied from him was her gender mentality. So yeah, she's kinda messed up.

Natani views himself as male, so while he may have a woman's body, his identity is still male. A person is more than the shell they were born in.

TheMeggu- that was true more true in the earlier comics Natani was in. In my opinion, Natani wanted to be male so she convinced herself of it. After coming into contact with Trace, Flora, and- most importantly- Keith, she relized that even though she does things seen as boyish, she is really a girl (especially judging by her feelings for Keith).
That's my opinion, anyway. Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
