New recruit

A drawing I completed just after I moved back to Cardiff and just had to upload, Because it's not a crew if you only have 2 members.

This is Silas Gambit, a frilled lizard who joins my team of mutated animals (check them out here)

The 3 other crew members will be up in the future, however only one other was drawn before I started uni, so I won't get started on the other 2 until my current project is over :)

Silas is a medic, so he naturally has a caring, sympathetic personality. He's cautious and keen to avoid any form of conflict (just in case it ends up with him having to get the first aid kit out!) and considering that the rest of the crew consists of a cat whose blood is mostly whiskey and a spider with agoraphobia and unsteady hands (whilst in charge of dangerous equipment) that's easier said than done. Just wait until the other crew members pop up on here in the future!
Despite this, Silas is calm and collected, letting out the odd passive-aggressive comment at worst (and keeping a personal supply of morphine on hand just in case, shhhh)

Silas' spine is unnaturally bendy, as a result however he can't stand up straight for very long, often resulting in him leaning at impossible angles to stay comfortable (which makes him so much fun to draw!). While the rest of the crew find this could be useful if he ever chose to take up a weapon, Silas prefers to ensure a situation never escalates that far.

His frills are no longer needed for intimidation purposes, and instead have become a nuisance and a tell-tale sign regarding his emotions. Whenever Silas is extremely surprised, angry (in rare cases), excited or...if he sees something that takes his fancy, the frills puff up involuntarily, giving the game away.

That's all for now guys, take care.
