Xarhiji and Ujah by pallanoph Xarhiji and Ujah by pallanoph
A commission I finished a while back for ~Seaff of her characters, Ujah and Xarhiji. :D They were quite a bit of fun to draw, but I faced quite a tricky dilemma in posing them, as I wanted their personalities to show through.

For those who are curious, Ujah is the female in the background and Xarhiji the sitting male. :) Awwww. :giggle:

Figured I'd post it here. :D

Characters (C) ~Seaff
Art (C) April Schumacher (*pallanoph)

Impressive. I almost didn't think this was you at first!

I can't quite say that I can tell which is male or female, though… sorry.

:excited: Ooooooh now you have me excited about that! I don't think I've had too many fan arts made of him, so that will certainly be something to see! (It's also high time I do more illustrations of him... I mean, he is one of the main characters after all! :lol:)

Free time is awesome... I have to find a way to make more of it! :laughing:

She is quite wonderful, isn't she? What I wouldn't give for my art to look half as clean. :D

I always worry I do too much graphite, but perhaps if I do some with backgrounds, I won't feel so guilty, lol. Maybe some old tree studies in addition to my usual character/species drawings will make them feel more completed? Who knows... I've always been so attached to my character studies. ^^;

I loved drawing these two, and I'm glad they show at least a hint of their character here. :aww:

They have great personality in just their poses, though telling gender is impossible for me, in this vaguely leonine shape.

It is a little tricky to tell them apart here... that, and my feline anatomy skills, I fear, are still lacking a bit. I ought to do some more practice studies.

And thanks!

I did a lot of this in a larger lead, so I had to grab up my mechanical pencil for those little bits. :D Oooh, and it was tricky, because I don't feel that my feline anatomy is quite up to par just yet. :XD:

(I swear, once I get some more things out of my way that I will do more composition studies for you. At least I haven't forgotten, but still! :noes: I'll make it extra special because you've been so patient!)
