Animorphs: The Ellimist

After 5 years I finally decided to color my old Ellimist lineart. Yes, I didn't spend a huge amount of time on it, and I know that the style is pretty cartoony. But that's okay, I think it works for the image.

This is my interpretation of the Ketrans, a species whose appearance is described very vaguely and only in one book, The Ellimist Chronicles. I always had a very strong visual impression of how they looked, though, and this is about as close to it as I could manage.

For those who have read the book, this is a specific scene in which Toomin, aboard his ship in orbit around the primitive Andalite homeworld, "grows" an Andalite body in order to inhabit it to mingle with the locals. I know his ship would have looked far more crystalline than this, but I wanted to go for that cartoony "alien spaceship" look.

Very good work on the Ketran. I can't imagine anything I would correct, and it would be interesting for you to try an image with "Father" somehow, especially if you could incorporate the Ketrans' ship they fled in after their holocaust. But, given how the description of how the MCQ3 was modified in nonspecific ways into the Searcher, you would have some leeway in the resulting image.


I don't suppose you have any idea where I might find a good rendition of the Hork Bajir forest. I would like to see if anyone put an image to it well enough to convey the immensity and sheer scope of those trees, but I haven't found anything. I'd try myself but I don't have that kind of patience... or enough green ink, really.
