Genocide by Abiogenisis Genocide by Abiogenisis
A soldier moves in to an area annexed by the northern recipri-nation, which is removing the Trapulli ethnic group from the territory so it may be modified and converted into farms. Reporters attempting to enter the area are shot on site, and their recordings destroyed, resulting in an information blackout. As the Trapulli villages and cities are burned, the millions of bodies are loaded on to vast trains to be dumped and burned in nearby canyons.

Genocide by ~Abiogenisis
Suggester said: Introducing an unique piece of Sci-Fi to you. It is showing a genuine side of alien life undergone by sober creatures furthermore the onefold atmosphere creates a predicate, that even aliens are not perfect. Whereas these individuals seem to be remote from us we can still feel with them, with their problems inasmuch as our world has those as well. ~Abiogenisis had a vision in 2007, stay tuned and please enjoy !

A post I did on the previous item in the gallery seems even more apropos here so I will repost it. 


It is interesting to realize that no matter how odd the alien biologically, their technology (for the same general planetary conditions) will likely be easily recognizable because the technology is shaped primarily by its interaction with the nonbiological material world. Airplane wings and controls will work the same and therefor look the same regardless of the life form they lift. Even the nonbiological materials will be the same e.g. aluminum will be used because it will be strong and lightweight on all terrestrial worlds.

Indeed, the more strongly a piece of technology interfaces with the surrounding physical world, the more generic will be its design from world-to-world. Only weakly interfacing technology will be unique. E.g. A firearm deals with high hot gas pressures used to launch a projectile. In almost all physical environments that will necessitate a cylindrical barrel with a hollow bore. Everything else is detail and has been for the last 800 years. Any alien landing on Earth, or any Earthling landing on an alien world, will quickly recognize a "boomstick" when he/she/it sees one. It will just odd grips. Conversely, an iPhone could look like almost anything. You'd have to take it apart and find the fractal antenna to divine its purpose. Benjamin Franklin would recognize an M4 as firearm in mere seconds but would likely think a dead/unpowered iPhone a puzzle box with the control buttons as nonworking latches.  

Novelty for novelty's sake has its place in both art and speculative science to be sure, but verisimilitude is usually more interesting past the first glance.  It certainly requires more thought, knowledge and creativity to make something look obviously functionally familar but still off just enough to make as of non-human manufacture.  

We go conceptually wrong, I think, when we try to make our alien environs to "alien".

Under my criteria above, this is well done. The boomstick is clearly a boomstick. While biological interfaces, such as the magazine store on the back are clearly non-human. My only quibble is that the grips on the boomstick are to human like.  Human hands are adapted to hold branch-like cylinders. The Birrin appear to have a hand comprised of three opposing fingers, a hand adapted to picking up generic objects off the ground. So, whereas a human boomstick has cyclindrical grips a Brirrin boomstick would have spherical, or as least more knobbly, grips. 

A detailed thinking out of the Brirrin hand would yield good fine detail for future works, I think.

Aye, I am actually doing some designs of birrin firearms now, and will be creating the handgrips etc from the ground up to work with their hands.

Hello, brother I wanted to know if you have stats for the above race Birrin. I was thinking of making a character of that race in a Star Frontiers campaign, base on what I have seen they are fantastic and I would like to create one for play in Roll20 with your permission. The art work and details are first rate too.
Thank you.

So it seems they have red blood like us... I'm assuming iron-based. Did you consider any other colors?

I did consider other colours but it seemed that pigments based on copper were less effective, and since I dont know much about chemistry I stuck with iron for now.

The one thing I love about this artwork is how you made it so one can actually make out what the creature's feeling, even if I don't actually know where they're nose or eyes are, I can tell that it's vengeful of sorts. Stupendous!

This would be interesting in a video game.
A truly unique life form, yet as human as us.
These would truly be interesting enemies or allies in a game of some sort. So diverse they could be both, or even neutral.
one of my favorites work of art I've seen.

 Am I the only one hoping that the Trapulli will get their hands on some arms, or some other faction will come in and defend them (preferably a country who is very pissed off about their reporters being murdered)?
 This can be justified from an artistic standpoint, so we can really see what warfare between this species is like, and not just this slaughter.

 I've always held your work in very high regard ever since the days that I browsed DeviantArt, before I became a member.

Well we started wearing clothes because of the last glaciation, to keep warm. The Birrin homeworld of Chriirah is a hothouse compared to Earth, so the Birrin wouldn't have much of a history with clothing. Maybe, I don't know.

This is awesome and oddly moving. You should remake it in order to keep it up-to-date with the current Birrin design, as it would be a shame to lose this idea.

You could consider them like humans: there are Africans, Asians, Europeans, Islanders, Native Americans, Aborigines, etc. and they all look different, but they're all the same species!

Most of those differences will be average size and skin color methinks.

Right; but what I'm saying is that Asians have differently shaped eyes than, say, an African. Just minor differences like that.
