Also, I am so utterly lame that I'ma just copy-paste the same description I used elsewhere. Ohoho, sneaky sneaky.

...I really have no idea. It started as a sketch of a face, and then I just started building off of it.

Sooo yes, these are three of my many, many nagas that I often pair together, for one reason or another. On the left is Aolani, the mastermind of the group. He's based on a Kirtland's Snake, a telepath, and is flamboyant as all hell. I believe he might have some gypsy blood in him, despite the fair complexion, but I doubt he'd ever give it a second thought. Middle is Kaphiri, who is based on a Spectacled Cobra (HAHAHA, get it?! Shh, let me think I'm clever) and is generally the scapegoat of the other two, he's very bookish and quiet and polite despite his highly venomous makeup. Right is Hemlock, based on a Russell's Viper, he's generally good-natured as well although his morals are easily manipulated. He has four arms and has a hobby slash obsession with botany and all manner of greenery and flora. Of course, he takes particular pride in his harvests of deadly plants.

Without going into all the details of their relationship, rather just skimming the surface, Aolani now runs an occult shop in the backalleys of some nonspecific city, occasionally aided by the other two, a fairly quiet life. In the past, however, he and Hemlock were quite a bit more sinister, and ran a crime ring in a city somewhere in the Middle East/some other random desert city where it wasn't so unusual to have a seventeen-foot snakemonster for a boss. Hookahs, harem girls (and boys), and all of that stereotypical junk. Kaphiri ran a small library seperately from the pair, although he was bullied into being a records-keeper of sorts for their organization.

There's more to it, of course, but I'm lazy and that gives you a general idea. I like how Hemlock came out in this, not too keen on the other two. Mostly because I like his huge schnozz 8D

Such an original title no? Anyways. A sort-of How Do for it. Mainly for iridescence.

Look and you shall seeCollapse )

Because everybody appears to love coils. And there's a Zenedai naga just because. (He isn't supposed to be one...I just made him one a while back and found he looks delightfully sexy with all that shiney snakelove)

Under the cute because it's HYOOGE. Googlepages owns my Soul I tell you. Also looked up nagas on Wiki. Very interesting. *buys tickets to Nagaland*

If I'd have won the lottery I'd take the rest of you too. Then on the way there we could draw snakes. On a plane. *SHOT*

Anyways. Before I make anymore horrendous puns I post the arts.

Click On Me. You Know You Want ToCollapse )

Oh yes. Also have this link to scanned pages from Loomis's figure drawing books (which I cannot affordso I glee at free intarwebz resources!) so I share with you all help with drawing the human bits of your critters.


I'm working on an almost-tutorial on how I do my nagabeasties but I don't have any fancy programs to use so they'll all be pages of scribbles on the same cheap printer paper that could double as toilet roll.

Ze Edit: So I decided to clour that little ZenNagadoodle. To keep you all absolutely fascinated on how I manage to colour with OC1.1 and a mouse, I post in progress shots. They aren't too big...so I'll post them outside the cut. Or not. Decided cut was better.

WIPCollapse )

Well some doodles. Seeing as I'm incapable of ink and colour.

Ambereyes and CassiaCollapse )

Hope you enjoy them somewhat. I promise I will fail to get something coloured up soon as possible.

Well not really. and yeah, his tail's all wonky but what the hay. =D



I need to draw more nagas. Kinda scary how popular they are now, but I've been into them for a bit over a year. just before they got all scary popular. I think.

I dunno, 's been a long day.

Unfinished doodle of Tryst and other concept ideas that spilt over the page. And a cute Gaboon doodle.

In the interest of making a valiant effort to do something that I claimed I would, I drew the final member of my naga trio.

He does not approve of the results of my noble struggle.

Too damn bad.

Introductions have never been my forte.  Here goes.

Hay sup.  My name is Kim, but I'll answer to Ziraray or "hey you" just as effectively, depending on which is easier for you to remember.  I bet you can't guess why I'm here.  Because I like nagas?  No, sorry, try again.  ---No no, wait a minute.  You were right the first time.  I thought this was was the Tea Addicts Anonymous community.  My bad.

I do, in fact, like nagas, which is probably largely due to the fact that I like snakes.  They're intriguing animals, and I find them to be beautiful and fascinating--not that I'd ever want to unexpectedly discover one hanging out in, say, my toilet, or wherever it is that snakes randomly appear.  As a matter of fact, I'd probably be pretty distressed to find a giant snakeman in my bathroom, too.  Anyway.

When once upon a time Lizbeast began to post nagas over on deviantart my reaction was something akin to YEE.  "People actually draw those?  That's amazing!" said I.  "But I'm certain that they'll never catch on and become particularly popular."  Oh, yeah.  Was I ever wrong.

As of today, there are approximately 9573732147028 nagas floating around, and, well, who was I to resist?  Though in my own feeble self-defense, the first one to hatch out in my skull predated the Great Naga Explosion, and he originally leaned more towards the side of being some kind of... demon... thing.  Then he evolved into the present-day Veine and disappeared back into the shadows of obscurity.  Until fairly recently, he slithered quietly through the dusty little corridors of my brain and minded his own business, but he couldn't escape the full force of my attention forever.  This seemed liked a good opportunity to give him an introduction proper.

So, here I am, bearing meager offerings of art.  MS Paint + mouse + boredom, because those are the most advanced tools that I have at my disposal.  Yeah, I know - I might as well be drawing stick figures with fingerpaint.  Possibly on the walls of a cave.  -Caveman grunt-  I'm terribly unsophisticated but, uh.  It's the effort that counts, right?   D:
