On my profile
What's below is just details about why my customs look like they do, why I'm so attached to them/serious about 'em, and how it relates to my personal beliefs.
I'm a spiritual otherkin + shapeshifter and the customs in my wardrobe + on this page are what I believe my soul actually looks like. Technically I can change form whenever I desire, and I do shapeshift depending on mood, etc. but the form you see here is sort of my Default. I'm aware (hyper-aware, even; I have Body Dysmorphic Disorder) that I'm currently stuck with a human body, but beyond physical/medical concerns I do not like it nor do I identify with it at all. Sometimes I may even refer to my body as nonhuman, because I am nonhuman and it's my body. If you're confused about this or interested in some slightly more in-depth reading, here's a great post/short essay about this, from epochryphal on wordpress.
I know I cannot physically shapeshift and I do not support those who claim to be p-shifters. I do experience the Classic sort of ethereal limb phenomenon you hear about on otherkin resource sites and forums. I can vividly feel my tail, weird. hip-wing... hand.. things, polydactyl paws, claws, ears, horns, fangs, etc. and when I change forms I feel that happen.
This is actually the main reason I began drawing at a young age, since I understood that other people can't see what I actually look like and wanted some way to show them.
•I'm polydactyl. Always, regardless of form. Seven claws per paw, front and back. Occasionally six when drawn only because it's super difficult for me to render it and sometimes I just give up. Having thumbs on both sides of a hand is really tough to draw.
•All metallic objects depicted herein when present (glaive blades , rings, sigil pin, etc.) are supposed to be electrum magicum. I have yet to attempt to create it myself (though honestly i Really Want To i
I'm also just Bad at rendering metal in general, oops.
•The scales on my arms+legs+back (when you can see them) are actually pretty heavy-duty for scales and more like plate armour/scalemail, but it's Really Difficult to convey any of that in the limited space i ended up with.
•The hip-wings are A Thing I Had in several past lives and I'm super attached to them, it took me Years to figure out how to properly draw them.
