    Cool Character/animal inspiration : life is alien enuf right here

    INSPIRATION:

    apparently this is a real, Terran animal called an "Inari fox". I guess. It's bizarre.

    Anyway, add it to your scrapbooks for inspiration.

    By god you're correct: those nails don't look all that cuddly, and that's what 'sold' it to me. (I did weasel a bit with "apparently", so THANKS, journalism degree!)

    Still, well done by the maker.

    That appears to be an infant Vulcan Sehlat

    According to the legendary D.C. Fontana, "My written description of a sehlat includes something to this effect: 'Make one wrong move, and a sehlat will rip your arm off. However, Vulcans don't make wrong moves. That would be illogical.'"

    Of the "Inari foxes", that particular image was the most convincing-- the full product line is not so believable. Still, lessons can be learned from the design.

    I mean, have you SEEN some of the horrendous renderings of "kzinti" and "puppeteers" in the flyleafs of Niven's books? Awful.
