Fennbecks by Blattaphile Fennbecks by Blattaphile
I was bored and wanted to create another species. I think I'll call them Fennbecks, if the name's not already taken or means something stupid. xD It's one of those things that just sort-of popped into my head so I'm not sure.

The 'fog' makes the bg look like wet paper... x3

Anyway these are creatures that dwell in the Forgotten Forest. Got lost in the woods? These critters are your ticket to escape. They are about 4 ft tall on average, and look like a combination of a fennec and some kind of marsupial (see the pouch on the girl?) When the females are not raising young, they'll use their pouch for hiding away weapons and all sorts of nick-nacks. As you can see, the males love to decorate their enormous ears with driftwood earrings and tribal paint to intimidate predators. (They took some tips from a certain type of moth perhaps) I don't have much else written about them so far. They're pretty common I suppose, as are most of my creations, at first glance.

I especially like the female. She looks like she spot someting on the right side and has to decide if it's prey or predator ^^

They make me think a little of the work of Robin Jarvis, i think its the dreamy, earthy-ness about them.
Stunning work by the way and very original.

i like these a lot, especially their massive eyes! Fennecs are one of my fave animals, so I'm obviously very drawn to the design of these lil guys :) how do they get on with the langur hali?
Reply
:iconblattaphile:
Blattaphile Featured By Owner Oct 12, 2006
Well they are cautious around anything larger than they are, so being half their size, if they ever encountered a lost Langurhali they would probably just watch them from a high branch or from behind a stump until they were gone, or if they were lost they would probably help them to escape (not so much to be helpful, but to get another possible predator out of their land) :P

These are super-cute. I am amused that the boy is wearing a loincloth but the girl is nudey nude! below the waist. X3 They're adorable, I just love this fantasy world you've come up with. I'm curious though, I know the Doctor created the Langurhali and the demonic Langurhali but where do the monsters, Fennbecks etc come from?

:iconblattaphile:
Blattaphile Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2006
yay I love questions regarding my Langurhali ^^ I can generally answer just about any questions involving my species, but for this one I have to think back to the beginning. I'd originally made the doctor to be a mad scientist of sorts and so he tried his hand at several different creatures before he finally created a race he was content with. (the demon langurhali.) These critters were some of the first he made; you can usually tell by how cute and fluffy they are by how old they are. His creations got more and more twisted with each experiment. Most of the good creatures reside nearer the Willow and the evil ones closer to the Forgotten Forest or human realm, but these have adapted to the harsh environment of the Forgotten Forest. :)

And yes I figured they are fluffy so the girls can go without bottoms while the males would probably have to wear the little loincloths to be decent xD
