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.
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?
