First Timelapse Attempt - The Blue Lizardmen

Here's Safari freehanding up a concept for the Blue Lizardmen.

Quick Brain-vomit on "The Blues"

The Blue Lizardmen live on the island known as "The Southern Lighthouse". They enjoy gardening, meditation, academic style education and discussion, and they believe the path to transcendence is found through spirituality. The blues believe strongly in living harmoniously with nature. Their society is matriarchal with Druids and Shaman holding most positions of respect and power. Fighting forces are comprised of Rangers of the lightly armored jungle runner variety. The Blues tend to favor obsidian tipped spears, and they use slings with devastating accuracy.

I like to describe the Blues as having an "open, temple society". Much of their society centers around an important central temple (ziggurat) in their capitol city. They insist upon the open sharing of knowledge, and most of their structures are megalithic pavilions with no walls. For cultural style, think Athens, with its poets, art, and street corner discussions and performances. For artistic style think Pre-Columbian. For the physical structure of their civilization, think megalithic black basalt pavilions and temples in a misty, broken, jungle covered land like Shang-ri-la/Xanadu/Shamballa.

"'cause it's all just a little bit of history repeating...."
