(For a basic view of the Birrin Bodyplan, which has 6 legs, see this link [slightly out of date] [link])

Refugees, faced with starvation and loss of livelihood by the diversion of the river that feeds the vast lakes they live upon, were shipped to uninhabited badlands in neighboring nations. The state responsible for the disruptive developments paid local poor governments, in arms and financial relief, to accept millions of displaced people inside their borders.

Ill feelings due to the destruction of their towns and habitat, anger soon erupted into large scale protests which the financially insecure and corrupt nations had trouble containing.

Seen here is a vast march from a nearby tent city; angry refugees storm an area of newly (but cheaply) build admin towers created to manage the huge displaced population.

Younger and angrier refugees quickly turned to violence, attacking understaffed riot police staff with knives and other improvised weapons.

Blue strips on the helmet could be one-way transparent?

I love the sense of energy shown by that rioter. They may not have recognizable faces, but you can tell that the dude is angry

Excellent work making this. How do you come up with your own action scenes? Without using any form of references from anything. Can you tell me? Please? Because I do not understand.

Do the posters in the background mean anything? Can the letters be translated or is it just gibberish? Have you thought of or are working on a Birrin writing system?

Gibberish. I have been working with somebody on creating a language but it is slow going.

I love your work! But I'm always curious, since the Birrin don't seem have articulated fingers or at least from what I've seen how did they get to their stage of deveoplment with complex tools. Like does one Birrin have to clothe another for example? Or like us do they use advanced manafuating to the larger work with making clothes and tools?

They have three fingers per hand, along with a mobile head and beak. The hands are simply folded away much of the time.

Hi there,your masterpiece is absolutely amazing! I have a personal blog and sometimes share some strange stories about alien world, so i was wondering if i have the pleasure to add some of your illustrations in? Of course not for profit and your credit will be respected.
