Really uninspired, so I did a hand study from a reference (which I’ll put a link to, soon as I manage to track down the ref’s link, :/)

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard | Art by Chase Stone

Color: Green legendary creature

Location: In a field by a forest.

Action: Show a badass human ranger-type with a sword and leather armor. In his other hand he is holding a lyre or some type of stringed instrument.

Maybe there’s a huge mammoth or wurm behind him, filling the frame.

This guy is a unique character in Magic, so feel free to make him distinct in his costuming starting at a base fantasy ranger/bard and elaborating from there. 

Focus: The warrior musician.

Mood: “I shall compose a verse for your funeral.”

griseus:

Is moth week and I can’t be out!! the fish family Pegasidae, aka sea moths, includes just five species (placed in two genera) but is represented in temperate and tropical coastal zones throughout the Indo-Pacific. All sea moths are small (no more than than ~180 mm total length), benthic (bottom-dwelling), and very well camouflaged. Seamoths have modified pelvic fins that allow them to “walk” across the sea bottom where they live.

A curious behavior seen in these fish (almost in Eurypegasus draconis) is that they sheds their skins in one piece, probably every one to five days, a process described in some detail by Herold and Clark (1993). These researcher also discuss evidence suggesting monogamy in this species, as well as other aspects of social and reproductive behavior.

I’ve seen a few fashion posts trying to expand the “Marie Antoinette is not Victorian” rant, but this stuff can get complicated, so here is a semi-comprehensive list so everyone knows exactly when all of these eras were.

Please note that this is very basic and that there are sometimes subcategories (especially in the 17th century, Jacobean, Restoration, etc)

And people wonder WHY I complain about History/Art History periodization. Note how much overlap there is to the above “eras”, and how many exceptions and extensions there are to these categories.

Oh, and by the way…

Because you wouldn’t want to be historically inaccurate.
