Jungle Tribe Warrior by RaXt0r Jungle Tribe Warrior by RaXt0r
As you might have noticed the Tyraeli's color scheme has changed from blueish grey and red to green. That is because I slightly redesigned them a while ago. WHY did i do that you ask?
Well its simple really. You see, there's not just one tribe but like half a douzen maybe, living in different terrain with each slightly different culture and such. There are a handful of tribes that life in the jungle/rainforest. And i wondered why would creatures that spent their entire life living in such terrain have blue/grey colored skin with bright red spots? That wouldnt be of great help when it comes to hiding and camouflage.
So what you see here is the new official coloring of a male Aluerkawo. For better comparison I tried it out on an old lineart you all know ;D
I wanted the color and markings to look as natural as possible, just like creatures habitant in the rainforest could actually look. Sure, its not unique but i dont want no fucking sparkle-lizards. oh and i repeat again, the Tyraeli are mammals, they dont even have scales but thick, leathery skin. ;D

so, what do you say? lemme hear your opinions! =]

Reminds me of some Permian critters, particularly the face and teeth. With their teeth they're definitely at least borderline mammal, but with the body plan I would take them to be a reptomammal. However, if they're extrasolar then Earth-type taxonomy is moot and unimportant. Excellent job on the whole!

Well, you're welcome. Similarly glad you've thought through these details, makes me feel less of a loser for my own species trivia.
