By popular request, I have drawn up an image of the noir beasts. For the concept, I was thinking of something along the line of a mud or tar monster and some kind of shadow beast. I have yet to add color to this sketch, and it’s just a basic idea.
As you have read, they a black, made of mucus and muck, stick and slow and dumb. All the same, they are set on their goals and will attack relentlessly. They do not care about self-preservation, leaving the defenders of Summerlay to wonder what motivates them.
I made two different versions here. As the story progresses, you will see why. For now, enjoy the sketch, and happy reading!
