The world of Paracosm is teeming with life of every kind; insects, mammals amphibians and birds, but it could be said that reptiles rule the earth here, crocodiles in particular.
There are dozens of radically different species. Some small as a cat and highly intelligent, they make good pets and loyal guard dogs. Others are huge, man eating dragons. Some have developed fin-like legs and never leave the water while others appear to have broken free of the water completely and hunt high up among arid forests walking on two legs like a huge nightmare bird.
Some of our models are reasonably muscular, but none of them are the classic image of a character like Conan the Barbarian. But I'm not illustrating books I'm drawing much more average people in their daily lives in a very hazardous world. So this isn't Conan the Barbarian this is Ned.
Ned the Mostly Average Barbarian.
