Animorphs Hork Bajir Concept

Another alien race from the series were the Hork Bajir. Despite their appearance, they’re actually peaceful herbivores. The Yeerks took over the species by infesting their brains and controlling their every movement, turning the species into fearsome shock troops.

Wow, it reminds me of the art of John Sibbick.

Did you consider matching the Hork-Bajir's visual design in artwork by David Mattingly or Romas Kukalis before settling on this design?

I used it for reference, then put my own spin on it :)

That's totally fine, and your art is great. However, I strongly believe that if an Animorphs film or TV show was ever made in the future, the Hork-Bajir and Taxxons, at least, should look like they do in the artwork by Mattingly and Kukalis.

Again, not saying your art is wrong or bad, just expressing my opinion for what I prefer. My apologies if I've upset you.

The artwork is based on Mattingly/Kukalis' interpretation of the descriptions. I'm not saying anything against their depictions, but at the same time, it's just their interpretation. If it were KA Applegate's artwork herself, I guess I would understand being a little more strict to sticking with the design exactly, but otherwise I feel like things evolve and change with the times and that's ok. Everyone's allowed to have preferences, but if a movie were to happen, it's going to have a spin on the designs from the covers. (And hey, at least I didn't base the model on the TV show version lol ;) )

There was a time a lot of Ani fans were making Hork bajir and Andalites in Spore :)

The Hork Bajir Chronicles is actually one of the books I've read at least 3 times.
