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? 

452 deviants said An illustrated narrative: a Birrin character goes on a journey across part of their world, a series of paintings depicting their journey. [Examples: Dinotopia by James Gurney]
419 deviants said An in-universe natural history book: a birrin organisation conducts a transect or wildlife survey of an area, paintings depicting their activities, environment, and detailed studies of animal and plant life. [Examples: Expedition by Wayne Barlowe]
298 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

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 :)


Subnautica DLC - Icebreaker Leviathan (Unused)
An idea that didnt quite make it into the Subnautica DLC: an arctic evolutionary cousin of the Reefback, able to use its bulk to crush pack ice and keep close to abundant surface plankton.

Hello, is there a chance that I can use your depictions of aliens in one of my videos? Don't worry I'll put your name next to the image, so you'll be credited.

Hey Alex.
You have said you're into real-world technology, including aeronautics, and that you try to make the birrin aircraft as aeronautically accurate as possible while also trying to keep the designs alien. That has gotten me wondering about one thing I would like to ask you: have you considered studing aerospace engineering as a means of understanding how, for instance, gases interact with an aeroplane wing? Being into aviation industry, I understand how tremendously helpful aeronauric know-how would be in creating fictional while also functional and thereby believable and breathtaking aircraft desings.
