A little bit of non-pallanoph stuff before I get back to it.
These are as sparkly as I dare go when it comes to critter design. Because I just can’t. I’ll explain later, I’m sure. They’ve become more solid over the many years I’ve experimented with them, which is what I wanted.
I am still debating whether or not they inhabit the same alternate earth that the pallanophs call home. They still need a lot of background thought put into them, that’s for sure! Though they have received a tentative name (Ynderrog) from Charanty on dA a while back, and it’s pretty sure to stick with them for the foreseeable future.
Female on the left, male on the right. I’ve imagined the female’s horns to be lighter and finer, while still incredibly deadly sharp. Males are heavy and coarse and blunt, and are mostly just for slamming into other dudes. And… trees. I imagine the female is most likely to use her horns defensively, and to catch fruiting branches to graze on.
These were one of three species I was going to leave “open,” so to speak, for others to play around with… though I feel it might be good to round them out some more before they venture out into the world proper.
