Miasmon Bestiary 2: Modestoat

I decided to do these at a rate of maybe one per day, but instead I'll just do them 'whenever I'm in the mood', which might be more than once a day, or once every few days, depending on my mood.

I like stoats. Did you know that? It only seemed reasonable, then, to include a stoat-based monster.

The ∞ stoat beasts ∞ in Beast Signer were based directly on actual stoats, with little in the way of creative tweaking. This, however, is only sort of based on one, though it also sort of looks like a mouse, or other generic small mammals.

They're found at the earliest parts of the game, in the same kind of places as Gruuls. If Gruuls are Rattata, these are Pidgey... or vice versa.

They are timid and easily frightened. They have a thick ruff of fur around their necks, and often hide their head in it.

Oh, and it's based on the word 'modest', since it's bland and common and shy, rather than on 'mode stoat', which would make no sense.

About this blog...

On the old site, I'd update the blog/news section only rarely, usually once a week, and whenever there was a new post, all the others would become obsolete and nobody would comment on them anymore.

I don't want that to be the case here, though!

I mean, I'd rather update this often, whenever I have anything to say or show; I may end up updating it several times per day, at times.
But it wouldn't be great if every new post meant that the ones before it would be completely ignored since they were no longer the newest one...

So don't worry about commenting on blog posts from the last few days; in fact, I encourage it! Don't see them as 'outdated' until a few days after they're posted, or until they disappear from the Community page.

Miasmon Bestiary 1: Gruul

Looking at the painted portraits from the game I made in 2005, which I talked about in the last post, made me feel bad, because I've barely improved at all in terms of drawing skills since then. I may have even gone backwards!

I want to work on my skills though, and since I'm working on Miasmon anyway, I though it might be interesting if I could regularly make a post like this one, where I include a picture of one of the monsters that will be in the game, as well as a short description.
That way, I'm introducing you to the monsters one by one, hyping up the game, giving you something to see when you check the site, and improving my drawing skills, all in one!

I'll go through monsters in no particular order. First, I will start with the humble Gruul!

You should have all seen this one already. Isn't it interesting, comparing this with the version shown in the last post, from 2005?!?

Gruuls are common, basic monsters, which you'll probably find near the start of the game; you could compare them to Rattata or Bidoof. They're physically-focused, with good attack and poor magical attack and defence.

They're commonly seen accompanying rookie trainers, since they're relatively tame and easy to find.
