Evolution by Alcarie Evolution by Alcarie
It was a boring day at work and I wanted to get busy!
Seeing how much the Turian people resemble raptors, I decided to make their evolution chain.
I was messing around in photoshop.

Actually that makes sense, though it's said they're Avian though they seem more like reptavian

This is brilliant, let me shed some of my thoughts on this....

Through our evolution history there have been evolution trends and repeated patterns, so given similar conditions and variables on another planet we could see vary similar (but in no way related to us) species. So on the Tuarian home planet they could have evolved from a very "Prehistoric Raptor" type animal.

Turians evolved from palaven-parrots.

And yet we look a lot more like them than we do an oak, a species from the same planet as us.

what is the first thing?.

It looks like an outdated  none-feathered raptor with a parasaurolophus crest.

Paradeinonychus from the jurassic park toyline, it's basically an 80's raptor with a short tail and para crest.

IIRC, birds are supposed to have evolved from a branch of reptiles, so it's still kinda plausible... The ape-to-man pic is an over-simplified concept, but somehow I like this piece, if only for the author playing with the concept.

How interesting ^^ have you got any ideas for asari or salarian evolution?

Maybe the asari evolved from the squid? That would explain their hair tentacles. The rest is thanks the Protheans who directed their evolution.(including their natural biotic abilties)

Turian ancestry comes from dinosaurs!? Makes perfect sense actually.

Wait, since when do raptors have that kind of protruberance at the back of their head?

I made a mixture with parasaurolophus so that the Turian fringe would make sense

Nice idea!

If you ever feel bored again, try a different combo. Keep in mind how specific body part develop, in accordance to their utility :)
