Albireon by Monster-Man-08 Albireon by Monster-Man-08
A commission for :iconscaley-randy:. Sentient Water Bears!

The Albireons are a race of highly evolved tardigrades whose civilization is on par with humanity in mid-to-late 20th century in terms of technology and are about as intelligent as humans. They like gemstones for the same reason as humans although they're more ritualistic as opposed to displays of wealth. They subsist on a diet of moss and meat although their primary source of meat is a large mollusk-like creature which they have domesticated. They are still able to enter a state of cryptobiosis which has helped with some of their planet's harsher seasons but has given rise to a very high tolerance for extreme environments (although their cryptobiosis is still gives them a better chance at survival). Their primary adversary are a an order of giant predatory velvet worms that are the apex predator of their ecosystem (although despite some being intelligent they are neither sentient nor sapient).

I must say you did a fantastic job with this, I really love how you translated the tardigrades features into a more macroscopic look :D
