[Auction] Herald of Journeys  [OVER! HAPPY 2017!] by manaberry [Auction] Herald of Journeys  [OVER! HAPPY 2017!] by manaberry

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!



sordid-dessert and I painted this year's Herald of Journeys together, and let me tell you I was so excited throughout this whole process >u< Collabing with one of my longest running inspirations is always a huge rush for me <3 ILU KHEL BBY.

UPDATE! Added information to the traits section <3


------------


Like clockwork, on the final day of the darkest season on Eyre, a blessing from an eldritch lord is bestowed on one of its citizens to welcome the coming of a new year. This new year is welcomed by a blessing from the Umbral Wanderer, with a message:

"Seek out the hidden wonders of the universe.
Find exultation in discovery and exploration.
Journey forth unfaltering, fair traveler."


And thus, the Herald of Journeys is born.

Notables :
Herald: This Elnin has received a blessing from a greater spiritkin lord, and has attained the rank of Herald of Journeys. (Presently this is only significant because Heralds are the only type of elnin that have the single primary horn trait, but more information about the Heralds is forthcoming!)
Single primary horn: Even among royal elnins, this trait would be found beautiful, since royals still have two primary horns, and manifest the single horn through illusion only.
Visible mana filaments Something that I haven't touched on in much depth, is the fact that elnin hair is composed of threads of mana filament. This elnin's hair shows sections that are phasing through various densities, giving it an ethereal, shimmering appearance. Most of the time, this visual effect only happens when an elnin is consciously changing the length of their hair and is not a sustainable effect. This elnin, however, is able to maintain this state of flux indefinitely, which is an uncommon ability.
Temu Familiar: Like pomus, temus are elemental spirits. Whereas pomus are shadow based, temus are aligned with the air element, and are most often found in the company of the sky-loving ieldi. Temus are recently becoming a more common sight outside of Ealei, and this elnin has managed to acquire one of the tiny fluffs. (More information about temus is coming very soon!)
Apprentice Pathfinder This elnin has studied with the Pathfinders, and has acquired apprenticeship in one of Eyre's most prestigious guilds. More information on specific skills will be available with profession/guild updates later on!

Elnins are a close species by myself, manaberry <3 Please do not make your own!

If there ever was just one design I could own, even if I had to give up every other design (apart from one) I've ever adored to pieces, this design would be it. This design is life. ;o;
I DON'T SAY THAT LIGHTLY BTW I absolutely adore all the designs I have, I've spent years accumulating my dreamies I wouldn't trade them for the world, but this design...THIS ONE DESIGN sways my heart too much. <3 
Frigging superb design you two! You should be proud! :D Though I must say, I do adore they way you two design, like there's many designs by you two that I'd LOVE to have, just this one surpasses perfection for me, that is all. cx
Also my heart pangs because no money to bid (and even if I had the money, I have other things I need to pay, like taking my pet to the vet and fixing a door on my car because someone tried to break into it -.- as well as four new tyres...being an 'adult' sucks so much ahhhh) whoever gets this perfect creature better look after it or I will find you. xP
Anyways I'm just happy I get to even look at this design ahhh thank you both so much for being amazing~! <3 <3

I DON'T KNOW EITHER, just something not blue and purple. Everything I have is blue and purple. @@ Maybe something black and gold. Or maybe something pink and blue. Or maybe something green and brown. I REALLY DON'T KNOW

THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

I know what you mean, it's easier to say what you do and don't like/want when there are concrete examples in front of you. Asking people to pick ahead of time is haaaard. I think the only MYO/CYOP thing I was ever any decisive at was when Chel did the baby lineart CYOP and one of them was clearly a fluffy cat and I went COEURL COSPLAY, EASY, DONE!

Clearly, Chel just needs to make some more beautiful stuff, as she normally does. And then we have to try and nab it for you.
