Ike has some body issues and those mixed with physical shapeshifting makes getting into this shape a pain in the ass and Ike doesn’t do it unless it’s absolutely necessary.
(Ike was originally created by Sheana Molloy nevar 4get)
Also look what is nearly funded!!!! COMPLETELY FUNDED, HOLY CRAP.
Even if it gets funded before the time limit runs out, the Kickstarter will keep running until September 19th, so if you want a 10 dollar pack of Borogove cards, this is the place to get them!
Aw, poor Ike, I think you look cool.
And congrats on the Kickstarter! I know I’ll be a happy camper when my cards come in the mail. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the cards look like.
It’s not so bad. Still poor Ike.
BTW, that Borogrove video really make me want to buy it ($10 are about 5000 colones and my cousins are likely to come here… no no, I’ll think about it when I’m sober)
Aww… Our poor old grumpy pinky fishhorselion. Looks like just about the most impractical anatomical structure ever.
On Picture: I agree with Ike.. there is no way I would ever go out in public like that.
On Borogove: Hell yes I’m going to help you out with that!
I want to see Tony at his first flying lesson ;)
That’s too bad he doesn’t like to look that way. Though I don’t remember seeing many of them in four-legged forms to begin with, all the characters seem to have a dislike for that.
I think its just that its easier to move around and interact when your in a half form because as everybody’s favourite Pterrip stated “I cant talk in my full form”
AHHHHHH, I’d LOVE to purchase the a pack of Borogove, but I don’t have a paypal/it’s so damn tricky! TT_________TT
I don’t have one either, i backed via my visa card :D
Ike can shapeshift? NEAT! Is that why his hands change from more human/monkey hands to paw-like hands in exchanges? (eg when he’s fixing the keyboard to when he’s sitting at the bar)
Aw, poor Ike. I don’t think he looks that bad, other than needing a bit of fattening up. Protruding ribs/hips aren’t a good look.
it’s so sad that he’s got so many self esteem issues.. he doesnt look half bad, I bet I would look uglier as a winged lion :P
I think he looks kinda cool. I wonder if Rhonda has seen him full-form
Ah, Ike, you look great buddy. I think his back and his hind legs are the best looking part of him, and are those scars where his neck and back meet?
I think it’s part of his horsey mane, which is shown mostly hanging on the other side of his neck.
Jeez, that dip in the spine can NOT be good for the bone structure. It even looks a little painful, like he’s all hunched up or something, or like half of his body’s too small for his other half.
…Wow, let me just take that massive foot out of my mouth… Sorry, Ike. I still love you. This is just one of the weird ways of expressing my care.
It’s entirely possible that it hurts to be in this form since presumably magic is the only thing that keeps an otherwise non-viable pairing’s offspring viable.
That’s interesting to consider now that I think about it, because in real life there’s many reasons that we don’t have cat/dog hybrids running around, not the least of which being that cats and dogs don’t generally get along. But even if they did manage to overcome every other barrier, usually the genetic data of two different species is not compatible.
But through the power of magic, Ike exists. One could see this as something of a small miracle, if we wanted to put a nice spin on it. That there were quite a few reasons Ike might not have ever been born, but he does exist and that’s very cool.
If we wanted to put less of a nice spin on it, Ike is… impossible. Literally should not be. He might be a new species, thanks to magic~
Same goes for Tony, world’s first bloke harpy.
