On the advice of someone I know on deviantart, I decided to draw a Fraggle as if it were a real animal. My first fraggle realism drawing was more of a go at turning it into a goblin of some sort, ALA Labyrinth. This is my proper real fraggle, as a species.
Love the art and the concept, what more can you tell us about them?What are they related to? Do they act like the ones on TV do? What is up with the one making a musical note at the bottom?
Ha ha cool. Will you be giving doozers and gorgs a similar makeover?
I have, not uploaded, but I'm not sure I want to upload them. They don't look as refreshingly bizarre as I think this one looks. The doozer I made into a chubby humanoid catterpillar-tardigrade thing, because I thought they looked a little buggy, and the gorg just looks like a big enormous shaggy man with a big nose and staring eyes.
Weird, weird teeth - almost looks like an ultra-derived rhinoceros or a toxodont...
I was essentially thinking of them being derived from primitive insectivorous mammals, but evolved for a herbivorous diet of abrasive plant material, roots, fungus, etc. The idea is, the projecting front teeth are for biting and nibbling manageable amounts from, say, a raddish or other vegetable, sort of like a combination of primate and rodent.
But don't get it like I'm bashing your art - it's a really nice concept. This thing, the "Chilly Down" creatures from the Labyrinth and Star Wars' Salacious Crumb look like they might form a clade...
Fraggle? As in the Muppets Fraggle?
