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.
I have a question, where is their brain located?
These creatures are so believable except I don't see how they breathe, no nostrils of any kind. Do they breathe? And if they do, can they drown?
That disk shaped area behind the base of the top eyestalk is a flap that can fold down to let in air.
I wonder how I could understand the emotions of these creatures beacause they have nothing in common with human faces. I guess that would be possible only by body language.
All of your work is just too fantastic for words.
Bizarre and fascinating. Nice.
i thought it was wearing flip flops/ sandals XD
Hey how would a creature look if they have slightly more gravity on their home planet? I would like to hear your imput.
Usually the more gravity, the smaller and lighter the individual. This is so that there isn't so much force applied to them.
I have to ask do they ob thaheads when they walk? I had a funny image in my head of a baby birrin doing a cute head tilt.
Sort of like a bird
I love this original alien study that you have! I like how you've imbedded substance use into this species, giving it some humanistic feel. Its amazing!
Can they fly?
These are some really really interesting things in your gallery 8D. I gotta take some notes from one such as yourself.
Can I ask what makes a Birrin attractive? Like, to another Birrin. I love original, biologically unique aliens and I always like to wonder about that social side of things.
A good fighting spirit
Oh wait you've answered this. I'll screen the comment section before asking an original question
How many fingers do the birrin have? From what I can see they have four, two on each hand and no opposable thumbs. It must be hard just having four fingers and no thumbs
Wow, this is a really creative alien design!
One can easily take a photo of a Seattle drug-dealer and slap the non-biological portion of the description on to him, and it would read more-or-less exactly the same.
Wow! Looks like a creation from the game spore. Brilliant.
Alex i just had a quirky idea for somthing you could draw for fun get ready.....birrin jedi....in honor pf the new starwars film that'd be so cool
