Animorphs Races: Gedd by Monster-Man-08 Animorphs Races: Gedd by Monster-Man-08
The plain and simple Gedd, native to the Yeerk homeworld, and naturally one of the first species infested. Gedds are an odd race, not terribly bright, poor vision, poor motor skills, and having one leg longer than the other for no apparent reason. Perhaps they, as a species, depended on Yeerk infestation, as the Yeerks depend on other species to advance?

Gedds are hosts for young/low-ranking Yeerks, but aren't seen much in the series (much less doing anything "important").

Although two-legged, they skirt by the no-bipeds-without-a-tail "rule" for aliens in the series (a rule I've probably shattered in the Visser series) by keeping one hand on the ground for balance.

BOOK: various - Animorphs #6 - The Capture and The Andalite Chronicles give perhaps the best look
Animorphs and all related characters belong to K.A. Applegate

I wonder if the uneven legs were evolved to deal with uneven ground?

I think you got it pretty well. I always imagined them as purple-blue and with a kinda stupid chimp look to them and like a hunchback. Nice job :)

Did it say anything about it being blue and furry in the books? Because my mental image of it is reddish and slimy, like a freshly skinned chimp. Also, with little horns, for some reason.

Other than that, spot-on.

I'm not sure, actually. I think hairy was at least vaguely implied (Gedds were described as being like apes, IIRC). The blue I got from some other encyclopedia-type site and/or other fanart.

Poor little guy, well, he is a blue swamp monkey with a slug in his brain, you'd be sad too, if you lived there, and had to do whatever a Visser or Councilmember said (they get the Taxxon feeding jobs, not cool)

Sort of like how I imagined in the books, except the color.

A half blind monkey with no life, that's this guy.

Not saying it's bad. It is a good picture, but nothing how I imagined it.

I hope you don't mind but I did a bit of an alien sketch excerise and got inspired by your pic to make a Gedd.

I forgot about the longer/shorter leg thing too. *slaps forehead*

its very good and it looks unintelligent, like how I thought they might be like. One problem though. one leg is supposed to be shorter than the other, but both are the same length in this picture.

Eh, there's a slight difference, but it's one arm kinda hides it.
BoogaBoogaBooga Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2009
I can see one is a little longer behind the arm. it's hard to see though.
