Ref: Xeno by KaiserTiger Ref: Xeno by KaiserTiger
A new and improved reference for my larko boy Xeno because the old one was just...bleh. I didn't realize how much my style has changed since then either. D:

I think between commissions I'm going to work on new references for all of my characters because they desperately need it.

What changed exactly?
:bulletblack: His overall color scheme got tweaked just a bit. I mostly just wanted his lighter underbelly color to be lighter.
:bulletblack: Another feather was added to his right ear, making two on both sides.
:bulletblack: Back leg tattoos were shifted from his knees to his lower back/hips and two small tattoo rings were added to his tail
:bulletblack: His muzzle marking got an update; design and color changed
:bulletblack: Age increased
:bulletblack: He got a change in rank; from scout to warrior


Xeno and art Firestar // =KaiserTiger 2007 - 2012
Larko species based on Red XIII Final Fantasy/Square Enix

Wow :wow: I like this one a lot more! The anatomy just flows better, plus I love the way you drew the feathers in his hair.

Hey, Kasa. I've been thinking about creating an rp group for LArko... But I have no idea what they are! I just see them everywhere, and do'you know anywhere I cn get more info on them? :dummy:

Lol, I was actually thinking about starting up a rp project with larkos too, though EBC takes a lot of work so I dunno if I'd have time to run two big rp groups. xD I'd just like develop Xeno's clan a little more~

Larkos are a fan made species based on Red XIII from Final Fantasy VII. There's no species guidelines aside from making them looks similar to Nanaki so when it comes to character diversity, that's really up to the artist one how far they'd like to take it. If you'd want more info, I'd have to send you a note with everything cause there's a lot. xD

I've still got your rp note sitting in my inbox too! xD

The design definitely flows better now. :) The patterns seam together quite nicely.
