each populated area has its own independent governance, allowing for an incredibly varied planet. the single world government could not extend their reach beyond their golden city- arifeux. it is the most technologically advanced city on the planet.
the rulers of this city are colonizers from another world. and they are dying. nature won - hyaline was not made for them.
the area most fleshed out is where the planned videogame is set. a stretch of rainforest the native people call falih’oko elinneu. they are called the gukeur people. they are amiels - a species of lactating egg-laying simultaneous hermaphrodites. ruled by kol, who is an ancient biomechanical entity.

there are 3 projects i plan to finish. it's been slow due to 5 years of university & a resulting lack of time & money. i am hopeful i can commit more when i graduate (at the end of 2022!)
i work on them all concurrently because they're all connected. there are no deadlines because i'm not being paid for that. also i just really enjoy the process of worldbuilding
art CW: quite a lot of blood
here's some art pertaining to the graphic novel (#nailsandteeth) OCs - mainly those who represent me or some aspect of my life, since i have had low energy for a long time for projects. so i resort to artistic self-indulgence to cope. relatable i'm sure
worldbuilding / project thread finished (for now)
@machinesbleedtoo I'm really intrigued!! All of this sounds and looks lovely. I look forward to learning more about it.
@bestiaexmachina thank u!!! will hopefully be able to add most the rest soon, writing is so much work omg...and i try to make my captions a story too. but it's fun, so i don't mind
@machinesbleedtoo I love how even cross-medium all of these works have the signature Gabriel Lighting. I do not know how to explain it, it just IS and I recognize it at a glance.
@JackalMordant @bestiaexmachina omg thank you both!!! I actually have no idea what it could be either, it's not something I think actively about - as i'm sure you both know as you do art more it becomes intuitive. i'm gonna have to check in on myself when i'm doing it next time to see if i can figure this out (always helps to know, bc it's basis of improvement etc!)
@machinesbleedtoo @bestiaexmachina I know what you mean about the intuition taking over in art. Being in a state of flow, not necessarily consciously scrutinizing the choices as we make them. It's interesting to look over body of work after the fact and be all 'huh I guess that's a thing I consistently do', hashtag onbrand.
