she my oc
Interesting character, what's the story behind her unique physical traits?
ohh, thank you! well, she's an alien species I made for my story called a berushtar, from the planet Pyrencerra! her appearance is pretty par-the-course for her species, but as for why I chose those traits, well, mostly just aesthetic choices! I wanted them to look part human, part animal, part alien? something non-earthly. I felt it would make for a unique take on aliens of human intelligence and sentience. instead of the usual like, humans with weird skin colors, and maybe some weird features. I tried to make something totally my own, based on what I like, instead of taking inspiration from existing fictional alien creatures. that's why I chose the four arms, made them resemble insect legs, tried to make their faces look like a combination or human and bovine, (I just like cows!) among other things. I was going for uniqueness and personal preferences, because I didn't want to just make a "typical" alien with tropes you see in every other story. there is also some inspiration I took from some mythological figures, but that's relevant to the story so I'll not go too far into that. thanks for your interest!
