Uhhh

I've still been seriously thinking about doing an INA comic again and it kinda feels like it's falling into place, but I'm not gonna start until I have a COMPLETE script first

In the meantime though I can still do test runs but I can't really do that until I have a new lineup for the species.

This is just a bunch of sketches but holy crap when did I ever have time to do the 32 character version back in like 2008?? rickgriffin.deviantart.com/art…

Anyway the setting has changed a lot in the meantime but here's where everything stands right now--

-Species are not normally able to crossbreed between each of these categories. (I ended up combining Tiger and Lion species into the Panther category just for that reason; you can get all Big Cat types within the one species category)
-They resemble (and are Technically descended from) earth animals but their actual genetics are very different. So for instance, within the Deer category you have quite a few ungulate variations (White tail as shown, you also have gazelle and reindeer and others that have random mixtures of patterns) even if their animal counterparts aren't similar enough to interbreed.
-I did have names for each species in the rokoche language but I figured in the end it'd just be easier for readers to be given the animal names for simplicity. (I mean, keeping their names straight is probably gonna be difficult enough as it is) If need to differentiate between their animal counterparts, it's (for instance) roko-wolf for the intelligent bipedal one and kase-wolf for the animal.

It's interesting to see how your art style has changed (and in many ways, in my opinion, progressed—even taking into account the immense... umm... "difference in effort") since the initial lineup 9 years ago.

I guess the anthro height range depends on which world it's in.  In my anthro world I am 5 foot 7, if you do not include the horns and I am a medium build, trying to reach a BMI goal of 23.

So cool, the only thing is that (as a syfi buff) it makes no sense to me why both predictors and pray species reach sentient levels. One or the other might, but not both. Again I love this, it looks so cool, but it isn't probable.Then again its the artist story not mine.

You could stretch a wee bit* and say both predator and prey species achieved sentience on Earth; humans being predators, and parrots being prey. 

*By a wee bit, I meant "a lot, if this qualifies as a lot" ;) (Wink).

I take it these aren't based on real world versions?
After all, they hyena should have about half again as much mass as the wolf, but the wolf is larger?
The male deer is smaller than the panther?
No lions or cheetahs?

Wouldn't eagles and crows, as well as foxes and wolves, technically be part of the same species classes? They're about as similar to each other as white tail deer, gazelles, and reindeer would be.

At any rate, I remember reading some of the brief story bits you wrote for INA way back when. It would certainly be cool to see a proper return to it. Maybe, as part of these test runs, you could do some short comics first? Maybe 5 or so pages each, focusing on everyday life or something to that effect.

Well I didn't leave out the possibility of cross-breeding ENTIRELY off the table. I have considered maybe doing some short comics to begin but I don't have any short stories to start with; I did have that old INA short comic I never finished but I got stuck trying to rewrite it and now it feels kinda moot.

I like doing similar height differences for my Furries as well. At first it felt odd for some reason to have mouse-people so short, but then I saw how Zootopia handled the rabbits and liked how it worked. I don't have mice 3 inches tall like the movie did, but making them just under 3 feet tall isn't as weird for me now.

It stands for "In the New Age." Alongside Housepets it's one of Rick's oldest persistent settings.

Now I'm glad I picked a rabbit to compare my short height to, it fits perfectly with your height chart XD
