A collection of Wal'kri* Wild-life Doodles i Did after having a conversation with
not too long ago;
(and for the record That Blue, fluffy, Humanoid Alien in the Red shirt is what i'll be referring to as a Wal'kri
So here on the page we have a buntch of doodles and sketches on mainly 3 Species from the Wal'kri* homeworld:
First of is the Planets mixed Equivalent to a Goat and a Deer the Karii
, a close Relative of the Space lama
(which i'll get on in a minute) they are commonly found in mountainous forests and highland Planes,this is largely due to the transitional period between winter and spring because most coastlines, valleys, rivers and various other types of low lying land Flood for often periods of time due to large quotients of melting ice, and whilst most other species that dwell in these environments just put with these brief changes in environment every year, the Karii and Space Lama's appear to have just given up on that and have become almost entirely Land based.The Karii Differ from there Blue Furred Cousins in two ways;
- First up is the pink Fur, its basically camouflage with the planets flora.
- Secondly there Antlers and Skull-plate (Only males are born with skull-pates) that also link into there behaviour as They are extremely Territorial as they tend to mark a specific spot on the ground as there territory, and if anything or anyone were to step onto a Karii's "spot" they will be immediately charged and then headbutted by the Karii. however to the non-karii it is impossible to distinguish a single "Spot" from any other pieces of ground unless the Karii is already charging at you, this makes domestication extremely challenging and at times downright impossible, especially of theirs a field full of "Spots" in which case its best to treat it as a minefield and try to go around.
Next we have the Wal'kri Equivalent to a Lama, which humans just call Space Lama's
, being relatives to the Karii, they often Share the same environment but are far more curious and playful than their headbutting Prone Cousins which makes them far more popular for domestication, This means if one were to go anywhere on the walkri homeworld or (any world colonised by the Walkri for that matter) they will find it almost impossible to encounter a Space lama in there travels.
And Finally we have a Wal'kri equivalent to an Arctic Raccoon, being found in the most northerly of places, they are omnivorous scavengers that often burrow into small Dens that often house entire family's of Walkri Raccoons. They are often used by wal'kri in the region as living hats as their warm, soft underbelly provides both warmth and comfort in an environment of limited resources, the reason they have soft underbelly's to begin with if to provide protection and warmth to their young, basically just picture how a Hen Sits on an egg and just apply it to this species.
And that was an extremely in-depth look into three native species on the wal'kri homeworld, and whilst some of these don't exactly have names at the moment, i'll just keep referring to them as such until i come up with a name i'm completely satisfied with!
Also if you're wondering what's with the U.E.G Marine in the sketches, its a running joke I've come up with that the U.E.G (united earth Government) just suck with dealing with aliens (specifically walkri one's) due to a mixture of poor Training, inexperience, bad luck or a general fear of the unknown. it's basically i thought would be something Funny really!
