Interests
Typically, to describe such creatures that are primarily human in appearance but for a few animalian or bestial traits (such as fur, fangs, tails, and elflike or animal ears) I have always used the word "humanine." It is a word I invented to describe beings like this:

1.) bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art…

2.) bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art…

3.) bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art…

4.) bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art…

5.) bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art…

6.) bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art…

7.) bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art…

However, of late, the word "humanine" has come to sound clunky to my ears. I'm not sure why. Perhaps my tastes have changed but whatever the reason, my own word is falling out of favor with me. I've heard other people say I should just use the word "neko" but they're not really nekos. Nekos are very specifically beings who, at least to my eye, appear mostly human with kitty ears and sometimes a tail. I've never heard any other words that really seemed to fit well or weren't 90-letter-long Japanese terms so I just went with humanine.

What do you think of these possible alternatives: (If enough people say they like Humanine, then I'll keep it.)

1.) Lethani (lee-THAN-eye) Apparently this one is already taken and no, I was not aware. I literally made this one up on the spot as I was writing this journal. Ironically, auri is also taken and apparently it came from the same series as this one. That's one HELL of a funny coincidence since I have never been exposed Kingkiller Chronicle until this very night when someone informed me that lethani and auri are from that series. Ehck. I am bitterly amused.

2.) Humean (Hew-MAY-an)

3.) Anurah (An-YUR-ah)

4.) Humein/Humei (hew-MAY-in)/(hew-MAY)

5.) Anumei (an-oo-MAY)

6.) Humaeri/Humaeres (hew-MAY-ree)/(hew-MAY-rees)

7.) Rusai/Rusei (roo-SAI)

8.) Animean (ani-MAY-en)

9.) Aunine (aw-neen)

10.) Auri (aw-REE)


If you did not like any of these, what would you suggest?

Races and Kinds WIP
This is a work in progress that I'm probably not going to finish for a good while because I am being pwned in the arse by work atm. This might help some people better understand one of my more common working methods. Sometimes I prefer just straight Photoshop but other times, I like to sculpt in Zbrush then paint over that in Photoshop. It's a good way for me to get started. As you can see in the bottom row, that's often how the models start out. I know they look awful but they are just supposed to be a rough basis to start from, a spring board of sorts. You can see a more detailed breakdown here: bjpentecost.deviantart.com/art…

There are 3 types of artists.
1. The crap ones.
2. The ones that make you feel like crap because you are the member of the same species.
3. And then there are the ones that are so INSANELY ASTONISHINGLY FANTASTIC THAT THEY MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE CRAP BECAUSE YOU'LL NEVER BE ANYWHERE AS TALENTED AND SKILLED AS THEM! LOL

And you blow number 3 out of the water so had that is warps into another dimension! I could not hit the Watch button hard enough! XD

WOW! This may be among the nicest compliments I've ever received. XD For some reason, it hit my funny bone just so I somehow managed to snort nutella up my nose. Then I started crying and laughing because what the hell kind of dumbass manages to snort Nutella up the nose? XD Now I'm a mess. =P

So thanks for brightening up my morning. :boogie: I am amused and deeply flattered and everything smells like Nutella.

Dude you earned it, the sheer amount of detail and vibrant color in your work is exquisite! Happy to make your morning, keep up the good work! :D

Also that bit about the Nutella had me cracking up! I hope Nutella smells fine up the nose cause I don't think I've ever had Nutella before XD

Dear madam,

I appreciate your offer, but due to ongoing plans, I would prefer payment implemented as described in my earlier notification.

Cordially yours,

Dear sir,

I attempted your method for delivering internets and it did not work. The internets simply ended up spraying all over the place. There is internet all over my walls, the floor, my desk, me- I even got some on the ceiling. I think my neighbors are calling the police. There appears to be internets all over their lawn. At least the cat made it out alive. Oh wow! I didn't know internets could fly. OH MY GOD! THOSE POOR GEESE! Oh dear. Well- hm. So apparently, if falling from a height of about three hundred feet, falling geese will in fact blow holes in your neighbor's roofs. Duly noted.

So, yeah. Can you be more explicit in your directions?

Dear madam,

I thought I made it clear, but I will repeat myself.  As we all know, thanks to former Senator Ted Stevens, the internet is a "series of tubes," and I want you to purchase 300 sets of tubes from the link already provided and have them sent to me.  Then the debt is gone.

My deepest condolences for the geese and your abode,
JohnZ117

Miss Pentecost, it has come to my attention that you have neglected to pay the promised 300 internets, due as of June 22, 2012, with your release of "Bernard's Room."  Now, I know you have been having financial problems, so I will not charge interest on this debt, but I must insist on its repayment.  As we all know, thanks to former Senator Ted Stevens, that the internet is a "series of tubes," which, fortunately for both of us, greatly simplifies matters.  Here is a link, www.freelin-wade.com/plastic-t…, that should expedite matters.  Please contact me at my page, johnz117.deviantart.com/, for further details on shipping.  I hope this matter can be settled post haste, and that you have a good day.

Thank you so much! :) I'm so glad to hear it. Someone was just telling me about how they didn't like my most recent works and it made me feel really insecure. Seeing your compliment really makes me feel a lot better. ^__^

Well, I think you're getting closer to perfection with every new picture you make, so I would most definitely recommend continuing what you're doing

Your art is INCREDIBLY stunning, and I love your humor in your "about me" questions! As someone who hopes to one day learn how to do 3D modeling and digital painting AND be creative and humorous (that was a lot of "ands"), I greatly admire your work!
