Civilis greeting by greyflea Civilis greeting by greyflea
Many people feel intimidated by the Civilis great size, but they are in fact one of the most formal, gentle races in existence. Everything with the Civilis revolves around formality, yet strangely enough they are the complete opposite when dancing. Remember, never be overly friendly/rude with them.

They've got nice smiles. Cute. I like them. And nice backround by the way, I mean when I draw backrounds I always fail but that is the excatly opposite of my mistakes.

Nah, I don't have a print account sadly (don't like the share of money Deviantart take) but I'm always willing to sell my prints anyway myself. :)

I don't eat Monster Munch I'll have you know! ;D I mainly consumed treacle puddings from Wetherspoons over the holidays, ehehe....

Twas indeed - and the tutors weren't exactly impressed over it, not that I expected them to be. 9_9

Unique is an understatement. These are beyond fantastic. The texture you've managed to work into the left-hand critter is particularly yummy, especially with it against the shadowy blackness of the right-hand figure.

They look so cute. I want the larger (male?) one's dickie bow.

Well thankyou very much. :D :D :D Out of all the races I've designed, the Civilis are probably my favourite. ^_^ It's funny, because even though they're meant to be the 'monster' looking race, most people seem to think they look cute. ;D

Aw, I'm sure he'd let you borrow his bow-tie for the evening if you ask politely. ;)

That's the thing about monster-like critters, It's fairly difficult to get anything in between "pant-cackingly scary" and "strange... yet cute" - No matter how you try, someone will want to cuddle 'em, dress them up in blue booties and call them iddy-widdy-dumpkins (or something fairly similar)

*Laughs* I know what you mean! :D I mean, there's no way on earth I'd wanna go near, never mind hug, one of those aliens from the Aliens films! O_O Dammit, it's hard to draw something in-between; I'd love to see someone who managed it though.

If you ever find them, be sure to let me know.

I suppose the closest you can get to an 'in-betweener' is probably something which you wouldn't touch with a barge pole, and yet you pity it....


Um, ok, I'm rambling now -.-

That's a good idea, and they'd respect you greatly for it. ;) Perhaps someone should politely suggest an orthodontist, eh? ;D Thanks!
