Sweet! To get a better perspective on their approximate size, what would a Algolite look like standing next to a Spathi?

I feel like I'm hogging all the requests! :lol: But since you brought it up, I'd like to see your interpretation of the Dramya "attempting" to take from the Melnorme. Maybe something like ship vs. ship or perhaps some kind of raiding party on one of their worlds where they store goods and equipment? Or maybe you have something better in mind? :)

One thing I'd advise is to put more focus into making straight lines rather than letting them end up wobbly. Use a ruler or something.
If you'd compare your drawings to a quick sketch of the Avatar I made a while back

you might notice that straight lines makes a lot of difference.

I was also gonna mention that you could try mixing in some of your headcannon ideas in the pictures, if possible. Why were the Dramya bent on piracy, and to what extent? But who knows! Maybe Dramya weren't all that bad after all, save for a small faction, and the Melnorme are in fact the real criminals, wiping out an entire species and stealing all of their useful technology, information, and valuable secrets! ...depending on your outlook and headcannon perspective, that is. ;)-smf
