The Kill by Abiogenisis The Kill by Abiogenisis
In keeping with the tradition of posting my old works, here is one from many moons ago.

My first major piece on the MSI species, more modern versions of which appear in my gallery.

What's MSI?

And this should be the sort of primitive form of the Birrin, like old homo habilis or something.

It is a primitive design of the birrin. Perhaps it would be more like a lion or something to them.

MSI was the old pre-naming thing I used, based on some aliens in the Nights Dawn trilogy ;)

Ah okay.

So they're a species that branched off some time in the past from the Birrin ancestor.

Thats right. Though now the design is out of date so nothing that looks like that really exists in the birrin world.

There were hunting predators that lived on an older version of the Birrin planet, but the design is out of date now :)

MSI? Is that the tittle for the book you are working on.

If it's an early version you could always justify and have now as an evolutionary ancestor, given that their behavior here seems far more the animal.

Is that one on the left affectionately stroking the other one on the neck or are they fighting over the kill?

Man, your work is mind numbingly good. I have a lot of respect for artists who can come up with such twistedly realistic aliens. It is alot harder for me to come up with a really unique alien concept, too many superheroes methinks. Oh well, keep it up!

Nope, first line with a wacom straight onto a Photoshop layer, then just paint under it on other layers.
