Q:Do you think the Andalites ancestors were more scorpion-like then they are now?
Oh thanks for this ask I really needed a break from working guh
My favourite headcanon of the andalites is a more insecty one so sure, yeah, why not. I’m not sure if I’d go full scorpion with the blade and all, I think in the Ellimist Chronicles the ancestors depicted didn’t have tailblades yet? Can’t quite remember. But otherwise it makes dealing with the evolution of their eyes and limbs a bit easier to reason out, and design wise it encourages a more alien appearance than ‘andorian centaur’ (I’m so glad I didn’t watch star trek as a kid because I don’t think I could get over the parallels there). Anyway… This was a great excuse to draw a dorky as heck protolite thx.
Does anybody remember the YA bookseries “Animorphs” by K.A.Applegate?
I LOVED these books. Started to draw comics because of them.
In Germany we never got the full series (they stopped publishing them around vol, 27 or something, and most of the specials like Chronicle-books never made it here), so I was happy whenever I could get the later books when I was on vacation in other countries.
Animorphs were the first books that I read in english. I know that there were a few video games, toys and a TV series in the USA and I was sooo jealous. xD
TBH I still would love to play the video games.
AAAAND I loved the Andalites.
I had the worst crush on Ax.
And his dead brother.
PS: Fuck, I just read into the first book again and my feels are all over the place once more daaaaaamn
