My favorite game with friends is me asking them to give me names of random animals, usually because I’m being too lazy to think of my own expendable NPCs. In this round, I was told chinchilla and bird…and therefore proceeded to not look up either and draw what I thought a chinchilla would look like and a random bird char that I tried to not make look like Aliyka and failed. This is also why sometimes some of the random background characters have no determinate species. Cause sometimes my friends are wise to my ways and will try to suggest weird combos or very vague terms like “canine”.
They say innovation is the mother of all invention, but sometimes you really shouldn’t discount laziness.
