Is the craft saucer shaped for a reason?

The disk is a good aerobrake, as it comes down through and atmosphere vertically.

"Roger that"



Inside the ship:
"Psst, let's just leave him here"
"*gigles* Right..."

What if the birrins' home system has another planet with sentient life on it as well? I just love that kind of idea. It would also make it easier on the birrin when meeting humans; they would already know that there are "aliens" out there.

There is a lowering winch above the circular door.

I like the contrast in size between the Birrin and the ship. Also the contrast created by using dark and light colours for the two.

I've never really taken the time to comment before, despite quite thoroughly browsing your work, but I love your non-humanoid take on alien life.  It's such a shame that humanoid, bipedal lifeforms are the easiest to budget for in modern scifi, if only because it's actually only one of a myriad of shapes intelligent life could possibly take.

 Pure awesome sauce! Something I am very curious about is how would first contact with humans go (assuming they are within a reasonable distance), to simplify it further, what if I was exploring the planet at the same time and happened upon and approached this lone dude just outside his ship?

 Well, if I was standing a good distance away from one of them how would I approach them or would I let them approach me? Sorry for the strange questions, I just find this alien species so fascinating.

Definitely let them approach you, as birrin front up to any perceived threat.

mabye letting them know that you are here but not maikng the first step, something like manifest ourself in the distance and let them approach to us?

If a Birrin discovered Earth, what do you think the Birrin Race would think of Humans? Are we still as violent a race as we are now?
Reply
:iconabiogenisis:
Abiogenisis Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013
Humans have branched into several new species, and would barely be recognizable in most cases.

Luckysweep Featured By Owner Jul 24, 2013
Would this be because humans have discovered other planets at this time, or did they naturally evolve on earth?
Maybe they changed and "mingled" like in Doctor Who?

:iconabiogenisis:
Abiogenisis Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013
Some of them changed on earth, and a few changed later living in space. Though most humans dont live on planets now, but in space.

Are the birrin ingenious? And when did you ever start drawing? And what were your first aliens?

Cool, any examples of said life?

PS: Talking to you is just about as cool as talking to Charles Darwin. Your art is inspiring and amazing, and I wish to some day be able to create art at least as half as good as this. Not to mention the life you create is ridiculously amazing and original.

Haven't designed them yet, though it would be algae mats and insect like creatures at the highest level.

Ah. It odd, the smallest things can be so interesting, right?

Ever heard of that squarish algae thing? It is a photosynthetic (I think) cell that grows in perfect squares. It's real neat.

Oh wait... Two questions, what planet are they exploring, and do you mind elaborating on this book project? Any book with the Birrin in it would be absolutely AMAZING!

The book project will be a long time coming, but it will happen. The planet is a nearby mars like world in their solar system that holds simple life.

I love how you've managed to create such an original and non-humanoid creature that can function in such a human way, flying spaceships and wearing pressure suits n' whatnot.

I'm so proud of those drug sniffing little quadrupeds them!
