I am putting together a pitch for the first Birrin book, after several years of generating material to fill in their world. I want this book to be just the first, so how should I introduce the Birrin?

359 deviants said An out-universe natural history book: written by a neutral narrator in the form of a nature/history guide. Each habitat or topic forms a chapter, which then includes details of the subjects including birrin activities in the area, wildlife, technology etc

Interests
A lot of people noted that my art reminded them of Subnautica, or that I should work on it.

So I contacted the studio and looks like I will be! You should be seeing some of my designs there :)

A question about the birrin I haven't seen answered (or even asked). How do they display emotion? I assume that with their vocal communication there is different tones with different implications, just like any animal has. Their faces don't look the most expressive though. Do they have body language that helps depict emotion?

Hey, I just wanted to say that I really enjoy your 'alien' design (Birrin) it's anatomically believable and it doesn't follow the usual, horrific alien tropes, it's also nice to see another Australian doing well in the concept space! Keep up the great work :)

Where do you get your inspiration for aliens? I'd like to do slightly more realistic aliens that stray out of the humanoid alien trope more, but I have a ton of trouble finding any kind of inspiration.

Just joined DeviantArt and you are one of the first people I'm following. You have the best combination of artistic skill and realistic wordbuilding I have ever seen. I especially love your Birrins. It would hugely make my day if you checked out some of my amateur artwork as I start to upload it.

Oh wow, thank you so much for the watch! 

I've been an admirer of your art for a long time, and it really means a lot that someone so talented is interested in my concepts. I'm really touched!
