If I recall correctly, 400 kg is a pretty typical mass for them.

I really love how you nocked out the anatomy and biological details so thoroughly. are you able to produce stuff like this with enough ease? if so, i MIGHT have a job for you later. (it includes designing alot of well thought out aliens)

BONES!?! What is this earthly heresy?! EVEN A VERTEBRA AND RIBS!?!

Though I do have to say, I admire most of your designs (most of which I saw on your website). As we all know, four limbs is too earthly and cliched, as are jaws, yet you can blend the familiar (eyes and mouth on the head) with the alien (alien mouth types and non-earthlike head shapes, and the un-earthlike eyes which the untrained Human eye cannot even detect as "eyes"). For that, I must praise you.

The jaw bone that we see in today's vertebrates has evolved twice, with both instances being completely isolated from each other. Also, any land animal of a considerable size needs some form of infrastructure, whether it be an exoskeleton or an endoskeleton. as for four limbs, its well within the realm of possibilities. one leg would leave you're animal off balance, and more than eight can get overly complex with little benefit, so that leaves a 25% chance that four limbs will succeeded. Now stack that number, with the number of different species a planet can sustain.

I suppose if something like bones can evolve on one planet, there's a greater-than-zero chance of it happening on another.

This is very good. Are you going to make an art piece with the skin on it? If you do, I think your watchers would enjoy that.

Actually, a version with skin does exist, see if you can find it on the commissioners page.

You should make a picture with the skin on it but the anatomical artwork is also very impressive.

I dont know much about the commissioners story, though I beleive they are about as tall as a human when rearing up, are carnivores, and are intelligent.

For an RPG i was setting up I imagined a hard-headed worm like creature that naturally targeted dark lines on other creatures, the assumption that the darker areas would be places where armoured plates would meet but not overlap. The worm would hit that with it's pointed, hard head and then open the radially arranged tentacles/plates and a central mouth-part would commence feeding.

This looks a lot like that - I like!

Noooo, Abi's aliens have six multijointed legs. They also have more eyestalks and fewer mouthparts. And they're called 'birrin', not "Galkgrokst". And the title under this work says this work is a commission for someone else.

Wow, this is totally mind-blowing. Tell me if I'm interpreting this correctly:

•Two non-compound eyes behind the "head", and another two further down the body

•poison glands

• a very large brain

• A skull based on [link] ?

Again, awesome. Thanks for the cool art. :D
Reply
:iconabiogenisis:
Abiogenisis Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2012
Nah the two eyes you see are the openings of the tracheal system. They only have the compound pair.

No poison glands.

The brain is not visible in this image: What I think you see is the organ that produces 'milk' for their young.

The skull was based on an elephant :)

What do those limbs do? With such a shape, I can't imagine they're very good for land-based propulsion, or even aquatic propulsion for that matter.

They use them as props to push themselves over obstacles and steady the forward body when it is raised in a cobra like fashion. They only walk on the 'elbows', the long spindly parts are for social signaling and grooming.
