Ah, gotcha.  I must have missed that conversation.  Either that or my fruit fly'ish memory has struck again.

Yeah it was something of that nature.  I mean you know.. don't take a shower for several days. Things get a lil'... gross.  You finally get a nice hot and peaceful shower you're probably going to scrub such places with great zeal and even possibly have one of those tongue hanging out of mouth, eyes half closed expressions.

Kind of like getting a good backscratching from someone. Just that absolute bliss and joygasmic facial expression.  One that would look oh-so-incriminating if a picture is snapped at JUST the right moment of you doing that and scrubbing your squidgy bits at the same time.

Here's one.

Several images of Kuvrahks depict that they do not have belly buttons, the majority of these are more recent pictures. However there still are a fair share of ones with belly buttons which are old and new. According to the FAQ they do have an umbilical cord, but that part isn't detailed. I draw my Kuvvies under the assumption that they do have belly buttons because that umbilical cord remains to have the same effect, even though it is cut while the egg is formed.

Bottom line questions, do Kuvvies have belly buttons? Does it vary? do they go away?

please use details  ^_^

Which statement begs two questions; How high is the shirt lifted, and what's the monthly access fee for that archive? >;3

I remember that one. I colored it long ago when I first started playing with photoshop.

I know I have the original around somewhere. In fact, I have it right here:

These scales are much smaller those traditionally found on reptiles or their ancestorial dragons. This allows their hide to be permeable to fluids, though not to the extent that their bare flesh is, but sill stand up to more punishment than bare skin could. The surface of these scales is somewhat rough, like a very fine sandpaper (800 grit or higher, if you know what that means). Although their scales are permeable by fluids, they do not sweat through them, but rather the areas areas of their body with bare skin.


Alrighty, this is a question concerning the scales (I am a detail nerd.. what can I say).

When it says "rough" does that mean that if per say one Kuvrahk were to feel against their own or another Kuvrahk's scales with their bare flesh, would it be rough like sand paper? or is the constancy of the scales like sand paper but it feels different? Basically every depiction of a Kuvvie that i have seen seems to imply that the scales are rather smooth like (what with the soft coloring used when dealing with light sources and shading)

A further question would be concerning the clothes if they do have such course skin (if it were as rough to the touch like sandpaper even that fine). Wouldn't that have a high tendency to cause more wear and tear on clothes? if so, do they make their clothes more durable to deal with that? or do they just deal with the fact that their clothes last as long as they do and buy clothes more frequently due to wear and tear?

Oh man! and another question! This one is faster and easier (maybe, unless any of you got juicy details about it) Do Kuvvies bother with tattoos? They obviously do piercings, but what about tattoos? The reason I'm asking is because I want to know if it ever would have any correlation with the Kuvrahk genetically inherited markings.

In an effort to add more cuddliness to kuvrahks, I would like to omit that description and smooth all of their scales/skin.  Cheap but effective.


Tattoos are cover somewhere. It varies from person to person.

A lot of reptiles have smooth or barely rough scales, so I find that perfectly reasonable. In fact, I always though that the rough scales seemed a bit odd.

Anyways, I'll make those changes ASAP :)

Yep, tattoos are covered, in the very section where you got that quote.
http://csyelus.com/index.php?topic=482.0#post_k_anatomy_skin
But, to summarize: yes, Kuvvies can and do get tattoos, but they can only get them on the underbelly, ears, palms, and bottom of the feet (basically anywhere there aren't scales). However, in modern society, non-permanent decorations are favored rather than tattoos.

---

On a side note, it is possible for smooth skin to act like sand paper. Take shark's skin for example:

i always thought kuvskin would feel a little like rough leather for the 'rough' part or suede for the 'smooth' part

i wonder if many hroomwathi wear kuvskin items

ack, double postin!

Ok, here is a question about sexual genetics. Do male oriented Kuvrahks have nipples? or do they develop only when the Kuvvie becomes female oriented?
