The Giant by Abiogenisis The Giant by Abiogenisis
Working on two characters for the Birrin book!

Both species, related through evolution, share a complex and sometimes bloody history. The more technological (and smaller) birrin dominate the planet, while the giants, somewhere in intelligence between parrot and human, have managed to survive in spite of birrin industrialisation.

In a few places the two peoples have found ways to live together.

Looking at this artwork and reading the description makes me wonder if there is somewhat of a sub species of the birrin living in chirrah. Like similar to humans and lets say gorilla's or monkeys in general. In our history social bonds and the inteligence have proven more worthy than a strong body. But maybe on Chirrah the so called 'apes' have maintained a smiliar inteligence to the normal birrin with only a small difference in comparison.

Do the Birrin have a language? If so, is it possible for their language to translate to English? Also, I'm guessing that the Giant and the Birrin share an ancestor like humans and apes. I really like your designs and as a sucker for realistic aliens, you're one of my favorite artists!

The Giants look like they evolved along the same line as the Predator Head-shot you did a while back.  Are they in the same family as the Predator Head-shot or was it the initial design for the Giants?

I've created a Birrin tapletop game set on Chriirah before the environment collapse. If you'd like to play join the discord and your name will be added to the wait-list: discord.gg/H6cHn72

Giant: YOU, LITTLE YOUNGLING! WHERE YOU GO? HERD GO THIS WAY.
Birrin: (under breath) You're f*cking kidding me, these colors worked - (louder) ME SORRY, ME LOST WAY.
Giant: IT OKAY. YOU COME WITH ME, ME KEEP YOU SAFE. BIRRIN NO HURT YOU HERE.
Birrin: Uh - WHY BIRRIN HURT ME? AM YOUNGLING.
Giant: BIRRIN MAKE METAL THINGS. HURT COME FROM BIRRIN. THEY NO MEAN IT, BUT IT HAPPEN.
Birrin: Aww - MAYBE IF ME BE FRIENDS WITH BIRRIN, THE HURT ALL STOP?
Giant: ME NO THINK IT THAT EASY. BIRRIN CULTURE AND SOCIOPOLITICAL CLIMATE IS AFFECTED BY PHASE OF RAPID TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT.
Birrin: Wait - f*cking what?!
Giant: ME KNOW IT HARD TO UNDERSTAND, YOUNGLING. JUST COME WITH ME AND YOU BE SAFE.

Could a Birin and a Giant....you know....reproduce? The Sapiens and Neanderthals of Earth crossbred, though there was considerably less of a size difference between the two species.
Do they belong to the same genus? family? order? Just how closely are they related to each other?

I can imagine the Giants, though likely shy and relatively docile, be domesticated into being bred for war in pre-industrial times.

Hmmm, looks a little different from the previous art. Less colourful.

Also, I wonder how tall the Birrin are? I always imagined them to be no more than a meter high at the tops of their backs.

Basically a test to just get some character ideas out there rather than focus on color/background. Birrin are about average deer size
