Birrin Study by Abiogenisis Birrin Study by Abiogenisis
The Birrin are a sentient hexapod (six limbed) species from a planet approximately the size of Venus. This individual, gaudily attired, lives (and sometimes works) in the tropical regions of their world, bordering the uninhabitably hot equatorial zone many birrin call the 'Kiln'. Low employment, high temperatures and generally harsh conditions mean that narcotic use is high among many of the population here. This birrin, after ending a work cycle and with no further hive duties, uses and deals in most of the local low end narcotics. The three clasped in the beak offer an enjoyable combination of flavours when partaken together. Other mixes are stored in plain view under a strap on the head for sale or later use. As there is no substance control in this region, they can be shown in plain sight. Potentially quite profitable, this individual has found much use for the money brought its way through the sale of longneck cigarettes. Either through trade or purchase, he has adorned himself with plenty of flaunted accessories, include a wrist mounted multimedia device, which feeds headphone cables to the auditory receptors at the tip of the upper two eyestalks; the device was likely traded illegally, or purchased from a wholesale shipment moving from the deep water docks on its way inland. Completing his accoutrements are an old cigarette lighter, a wallet strapped to the forearm, and a few rolls of personally selected drugs to his personal taste bound to his neck.

Even in space people need sandals :P

What do you think of Exobio's Bex and Gapuri?
Love them both. Very cute and interesting!

I have to say your Birrin, Exobio's Gapuri and Bex as well as all of Transapient's works are probably the most well conceived aliens out there.
Thanks, can you link me to what the Bex look like?

Here's the link to the Bex :)…

See, and young adults like this, right here, are why the moment you let tropicals into a hive, sends the property values right down.  Seriously, look at him, strutting around with his bling and longnecks... When my progenitors were young, they treated narcotics with respect, there was some class.  But the young these days, just disgraceful...

also im impressed that they have the dexterity required to make such intricate wiring work!
