Squamataur experiment by Karbo Squamataur experiment by Karbo
A little strip about an experiment to study the ability of some squamataurs to imitate their environment pattern. Too bad the experiment is conducted by fairies who went a little overboard XD

I had lot of fun doing this one, I was giggling to myself the whole time =p

I've never seen a squamataur before, so it's a good thing you drew one!!!

This concept is golden! I can understand why you were giggling while drawing it, because I was laughing out loud while seeing it!

I like how you didn't use borders to separate the panels... It looks very clean.

Also, the fairy is not boring. She is a bit different in every panel, and you can see her playful personality! The squamataur also has fun emotions. She seems glad to volunteer in this experiment at first, but then she gets annoyed!!

One thing... In the last panel, I first thought she was spitting something... Then I found out it was her tongue!!! I don't know...Maybe there should only be one tongue, because the Fairy isn't moving that fast. Right now, it looks like the squamataur is spitting something, or that she has 3 tongues... or maybe it's just me being silly.

Anyway...I love the patterns. You started with simple colors, then subtle patterns, like that of leaves, earth and darkness and even fire...Then the patterns became loud and silly. I love her expression on the Christmas tree pattern.

Question: When she camouflages in real life, would a "predator" see here hair and top?

I gave you 4 1/2 for Originality only because this comic reminded me of Randall's training in Monsters Inc. But I like yours better!

Well, that's another critique...I hope I'm getting better at these. Thanks for everything Karbo. You're amazing!

The way you made the patterns transition to the girl's skin is really well done, they really flow across her curves very nicely. I really like that you didn't just put some flat texture it really makes a huge difference. BUT I DID FIND ONE FLAW the one second from the right on the top row with the red background the girl's right hand and fingers are fatter than her left hand even though its farther away. :O
lol jk
I can't really critique this because its meant to look more like a casual relaxed draw. If it didn't it wouldn't seem right so it all seems spot on to me!.... except them fingers lol jk

This so made my day. I love the humor and the fact we've never seen the characters before it adds little fun to the environment of Felarya, which often is not seen enough around this group. ^_^; I also like the fact you challenged yourself to do multiple different types of background for the Squamatuar to change and match up with. The Christmas one is my favorite by the way.

Oh I did! I got a bunch of ideas for coloring options. But ya know. If Sqaumatuars can change their color. It puts Gekota's out of the business. o.o; Maybe Sqaumatuars need a a sub species. Though then they wouldn't be a minor race would they? I think I'll address this on the forum.

I like the idea, but when the hands or any other body part is outside the range of the background cloth, wouldn't they be white or flesh-toned? It's still a great idea, especially the patterned clone skins.

Haven't those Fairies ever heard the term "Stop while you're still able?" Because too much of a good thing for this fairy was bound to lead to This Squamataur not being able to take anymore.
Navi appears to be warning that fairy to stop messing around...or am I hallucinating? not sure. but it makes sense since not many people that I know of actually listen to her.

Haha, well this is just a brilli- HEY! LISTEN!

Uh, as I was saying, this is brilliant! I probably like the little fairy the most, watching her descent into fits of uncontrollable laughter and subsequent hurried escape made me laugh :D I like how the patterns become distorted over her body too, like those Christmas trees! The squamataur has an nice design too, does she have a name? And to think she looked so calm and cheerful to start with XD

I love it! This is absolutely awesome! And really funny, too.

You put a lot of work into this obviously, but also a lot of humour. Like the little fairy is unique every time, that by itself is already fun to watch!

Awesome job!
