Feyrie Naming Conventions:
Fey name themselves after they grow old enough to talk. Before they do, they’re referred to in general terms (“the kid”, “this baby”, “our child”) or by a temporary name, depending on their court’s traditions.
Fey don’t typically take middle names.
Courted fey usually adopt their court as a surname (“Meparik of the Frostbitten Court”, “Fea of the Windriders”, “Eustais of the Lycarious Court”), while solitary fey might adopt residence or profession as their surname (“Morekai of Hybirah”, “Ainzel the Summer Herald”, “Charlan the Shopkeep”).
Yes, some fey will name themselves after nouns, adjectives, etc (“Snow”, “Russet”). It’s more common in the wildercourts, but city fey will do so just as readily if it strikes their fancy.
A fey might change their name if they feel that they have grown out of their old one, or if they have changed their gender identity. It’s common (and sometimes expected) for fey to change their name after assuming a leadership position.

SERVANT OF THE WILDERCOURT
A tenacious girl escapes her past life by accompanying the Wolf Lord Kurkhoran to the Wildercourt. Amidst its twisting corridors and inhuman denizens, Tasyi tries to carve out a new life for herself, but her pursuit of happiness is cut short when a person from her past follows her to the Court.
some visual development for a graphic novel I want to work on. you can see more on my patreon!

Your designs are so cool and novel and folk-tales-y! What's the story on the hunting dogs, though? They make me shudder and I love it.
Thank you for the kind words, I'm definitely aiming for folk-tale designs, so I'm happy it carries through!
The Hunting Dogs are part of the Wolf Lord's retinue. They are a working class of the Court and help with maintaining order, taking on roles of guardsmen, watchmen, etc. They also accompany the Lord Wolf on hunts within the vast lands of the Wildercourt.
They take their jobs very seriously, but also have a playful and very passionate side to them - as expected of dogs.
I'll answer a few more Hunting Dog questions in this post!
Tumblr media
Sure, go for it! I'm glad you like the design to want to iterate on it with your own idea. :)

It's hard to tell what the material is made of, but the crude form of the mask seems more of an imitation. The Hunting Dogs themselves are fond of actual dogs, and would likely find it distasteful to wear the flesh of a four-legged companion.

Just got your Wolvendaughter comic and I’m so excited to read it!!! The art is so amazing and I’ve been sneaking looks on my breaks :)
Also!! Could we ask about your new visdev project? It looks so interesting and your character design is so so cool!!! Would love to know more about it!
Thanks so much for sharing your art with us!
I hope you enjoy Wolvendaughter!!
the Wildercourt visdev is for a graphic novel I'd like to make. The general premise of the story is in the description of this first set of images I posted. It follows a girl, Tasyi, who is an outsider to the strange world of the Wildercourt. It's a kind of an otherwordly and grotesque setting for a story that focuses on very minute/humane aspects of one girl's life. I post more development art and commentary for the project on my Patreon!
I'm still in the process of looking for a publisher that would be interested in picking it up, since I can't afford to work on a 250~ pg GN in my free time, so I don't know if this comic will be realized, or when!
