This creature popped up the other day after I stocked a certain item at work that inspired the body to this guy.  It turned out being a somewhat similar creature idea to the stone faced brok creature that I had drawn a long long time ago.  I figured they could be distant relatives in the animal world of Hup.Still working on the biology of these, but I love their faces.  Pitted Brok have strangely deep grooves on their pelvises, and although it looks like it could be detrimental, it doesn’t seem to hinder its ability to move and function.  Like several species on Hup, they have pits along their ribs that channel directly into the lungs for breathing, and in to another sack above the lungs for air to store for vibrations and calling to communicate to each other.  They have large bellow pouches in their throats where air can exit from the lungs or other sack, dwell for noise and exit a small nasal opening behind the cheek.  No air is taken in from the mouth.  Both the male and female broke have dramatic scaled crests on the back of their necks and head.  The only sexual dimorphism between them is the extended bony chin paddle found on the males, who are a little brighter in color.  These animals are known for their ability to travel over rough terrain, using their strong three toed feet over roots, rock, and even into trees given the proper path way.  Found in vast jungle and rain forest lands.  Pitted Brok are unsavory to most predators, because of their lean, tough meat and wicked kick.

One of those late night doodles that turned out real badly.  That’s what happens at three in the morning coming off of a booze buzz I guess.  I suppose, when I’m drawing something, I shouldn’t start with the wings first, else the body looks very out of proportioned.  oh well, might redraw later or something.

Question reblogged from That's right. with 10 notes

scarlet-harlequin-sketchbook said: I had a dream with one of your drawings in it. It was one I don't think you've done before and drawn in pencil. It was an image of a gigantic Lock sitting/floating in the bevel of a canyon, just barely peeking up from the space and onto the flat plane. It was absolutely swarmed by smaller locks, like whales are swarmed and followed by small fishes. It had a very ominous and doom bringing feel to it. I wanted to ask you if you would draw a lock seen like it.

crispyfishsticks:

That sounds pretty intense and interesting.  Any idea who the big Lock might have been?  

I’m not sure. It was a big black lock, but I got a very disturbing feel from it in particular. It had white eyes instead of the usually seen yellow it seemed. It definitely wasn’t Ary..

I think, I recall that many of the locks surrounding it were slightly merged, or connected together in some way.  Some also may have been slightly off color, sort of like the scars on your crippled lock (I forget his name.)

I had fun with this one.  But I’m not entirely sure about it.  It’s a wood and bark eating animal, about the size of a large pony (or a small horse).  They have large bellows in the noses, and in their throats that they use to impress mates with, along with their horns, and use to startle predators.  Although, they have a wicked bite that makes most predators very wary anyways.  I think that they strip bark to eat the soft wood and sap off of trees and tough plants, kind of like beavers do.  They have sails on their backs that can flap that help control body temperature, probably most likely during running, as they live in the warmer forest zones in the mix point of the desert and jungle.
Still playing with this one.

During the midst of exhaustion, I challenged Rajah with the wood eating creature.  Rajah got taken down hard.  It was not good prey.

I’ve realized how little I actually draw Rajah, who is my main focus in all things orekroark when it comes to an individual character.  I’ve failed at drawing a proper reference page of him, and beyond, I’ve failed at figuring out all of his markings and then drawing him in any fashion other than a head shot.  Though it is those failures that sparked me really pushing the anatomical studies and pelt studies I am currently doing.  Thank you for being rude Rajah, and showing me what I need to do by being the one that’s not cooperating.So here, have a midnight, tired, perspectively challenged Rajah doodle of him reaching towards someone or something.  Orekroark and all that is Hup belong to me.
