Faigrans: Aquatic Canines by Noomeci-art Faigrans: Aquatic Canines by Noomeci-art
One of my entries for the Train your Brain contest. You can find the original sketches here [link]

Faigran: An Aquatic species with Canine features, one of several alien species that Iím working on conceptualising.

Their origins comes from a role-play that I have with :icongutter-child:, and it
is our hopes that someday (probably in our 40ís when we finally get time >;] ) that we can develop this role-play into an actual comic/novel and get it published.

The concept behind this specie is taking inspiration from Earths already vast and beautiful collection of aquatic life, from fish, corals reef to cetaceans and creating this unique diverse specie with various races, cultures and belief systems. The history and story behind the Faigrans is one of the most intricate concepts Iíve ever created for any of my characters so Iím pretty excited to really get into it and develop this specie.

A note of interest, the Faigran at the front is Adomant the first Faigran found in our role-play and the one that actually inspired me to create this specie.

BUT WAIT! There are more! How cool is this!? -points out to a work colleague, colleague states "WOW. I wish I wasn't alive anymore- Phailed at inspiration. But it is a good thing nonetheless!

Very cool concepts. Especially the last one. The second one is pretty good too. I think (critiquing now) the third one feels out of place because all the others have long hair and elongated features. So it feels like the midget species... If that is what you were going for then good work. But perhaps rework some of the others so that they too are a little more unique? perhaps a longer or shorter neck, more ears? Shorter ears? Different eye placement?

Not sure as I'm just commenting off the top of my head...

However, if you wish it. I'll try and give more in depth feed back at a later time when I'm not at work and more focused, haha.

I love the colors and the markings - each one is so different.

I got some practise with the first two, so with the last two I had more of an idea of what to do ;3 I love the last one as well.
Thank you greatly
