For what it's worth: a portrait of a hross:

Hmmm...

I always saw them as being something like a bipedal otter/seal creature. They might be wookie-like in their silouhettes, but wookies are too canine/apish in their features to be hrossa.

It's a good pic; I always thought of them as kind of a weasel/otter cross, but waaay bigger. I'd be interested to see your picture of a Pfifiltrigg, though. :toothy-grin:

The Hross is a render of a generic "furry" model with a couple hundred morphs. There's a model wookie out there (officially called a "Very Tall Man In A Hairy Yak Suit", as it's unlicenced by LucasFilm) that might with some (lots of!) work become a Sorn, but I'd be pretty interested to see that Pfiffltrigg model myself! :lol:

Here's another picture (yeah, it's just a Spinosaurus model: I've still got a good long ways to go on the scene altogether):

A long time ago I made a sketch of a hnraka. (Well, actually a mini hnraka named Hyio, born of a typo in OotSP) It came out okay, but I think the really hard part was drawing the tail/fins/lower body. It would have to be really muscular to get that kind of power: didn't he describe it as traveling like a torpedo through the water? But I'm not sure.

Well, I suppose I could change it to an ichthyosaur...

Having searched a while ago for Space Trilogy artwork, i have discovered a distinct lack of pictures. I think people find the characters pretty hard to draw.....

My inner pfifltrigg

Postby Kanakaberaka » 03 Oct 2006, 05:47

I have included a sketch of each of the three Malacandrian hnau in my Out of the Silent Planet study. They aren't much to look at, but Stanley got me started on them. So I just had to include them.
so it goes...

Hross

Postby bcd » 13 Dec 2006, 07:17

These are a couple of little sketches I did in class in between notes
It is a little distracting to draw in class, but not so much that I miss too much of the lecture.
The one on the left is better, less cartoony. The snout is too long on the one on the right. He is more ottery as someone above said.

Nice class time doodlings you have there. I used to "decorate" the back pages of most of my elementary school note books with all sorts of scenes which just seemed to take on a life of their own. It's interesting when a reader creates his own images of characters from what he has read.
so it goes...

Thanks for sharing your sketches with us, bcd, and Welcome to the Wardrobe!
Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.
