Ellery Vector by Amythest621 Ellery Vector by Amythest621
Eeeeeey~ I finished him Wink/Razz  Anywho. This is Ellery, Ilana's older brother. He's the son of the dryads, total cat lover (he's never met a cat who didn't like him--seriously he's basically a giant scratching post with unlimited affection and attention to dole out) and is based on a yew tree. Which means he plucks all his leaves in the mornings because they are poisonous, and since he takes care of tiny cats all the time, it would be dangerous if one ate some of his leaves by accident. Though he keeps the moss up in his branches cause he feels kinda bald without it XD Ellery is mostly deaf, caused by wood burrowing larvae when he was a wee sapling, so he communicates mostly through sign. He does have hearing aids (though doesn't always like to wear them because they make his ears feel buzzy), but, since he's 91 (roughly 17-18 in normal peeps years), he's had a lot of practice with lip reading. He understands people pretty well; it's people understanding him that tends to be the problem. He's largely uncomfortable with the way his voice sounds so is not one for talking much and greatly prefers to sign. He's very quiet, and nervous around new people. :3 El and Lana's last name is still pending. Would gladly take suggestions XD

TYTY ;v;Llama Emoji-10 (Shy) [V1] Ellery is my adorable giant tree man~ I'm so excited to draw him some more because his personality is super thought out and prevalent. It's easy to put myself in his head ^-^

Aww. I can't wait to see more of him! He really has a great personality from what I can see!



Would it be alright if I threw a potential friend his way?

Lol, coolness

Ellie is my nature-loving tree girl who is super sweet. Obviously my main reasoning for suggesting her is the whole tree-thing, though she is based on the woodwives and so her bark is from elbows-down, knees-down, and on her back which is hollow.
Dylan works at an animal shelter and LOVES animals. He could hook Ellery up with new kittas!
Lenoire is a fashion girl, but she loves cats. Looooooooooves cats.

I love this character concept!! He's such a lovely gentle giant. I really like the way you integrated the wood effects into his design, i can just see him with 5 kittens clinging on to the branches of his hair hahaha <3

Oh my gosh, he looks so great too! The way you incorporated the tree-inspired design is so fantastic! And I love the idea of him being deaf, it's a very interesting concept.

Thank you, I had so much fun designing him! I've actually wanted to make a deaf/HoH character for a long time. I've learned some ASL but my grammar is utterly awful XD I mix up the order of signs all the time. Hopefully I'll be able to portray him pretty well ^-^

That's neat, ASL is on my list of languages that I want to learn! There's these two kids in my class who are always signing to each other, and it's so cool to watch.

It's a very beautiful language. One of my great-uncles is deaf and his kids (my mom's cousins) are all fluent in ASL, and I grew up always knowing a bunch of basics but not being fluent myself. It's a very underrated language and you should definitely learn it if you get the chance!

Eee! Look at this adorable gentle giant. I love the bark on his shoulders! And the Branches and moss give him such an interesting silhouette. He is so precious. ;w; Maybe their last name can be Baum? Its the first surname I think of when I think of trees.
