Well, I tried drawing Yauri, but I can't. Can you provide a front view?

Slight asymmetry is perfectly fine, lemming!  :)  Even recommended!  ;)


Helps bring out a more "natural" feel, compared to works with more emphasis on science textbook-ish symmetry.


In any case, love the creatures! Simply great!  :)

Hope to hear more from them.

Well the basic Yauri creation myth is that everything was at one time in perfect harmony and peace.  Then somehow a piece of the perfect world disappeared and caused imbalance and chaos to come into the world.  This missing piece is usually dubbed the fifth element. From this chaos the Yauri believe that all pain and suffering in the world is because of the loss.  Now the major religious rifts form on how to bring the element back.  More on the three prophets and their religions soon to come.

Here is the ancestor of the Yauri:


Then they followed a convergent evolution with us Humans by coming down from the trees into grasslands and became the Yauri.

Also, I am unsure wether I should post the wild life of Viracocha it may fill 2-3 long posts. Should I?

Okay here goes:

Flora

An overview of the Floral life on Viracocha:

 There are four main types of Land flora: Osteopurpalus, ( Purple flora with a skeleton) Pinosteos, (Purple flora without a skeleton)  Rufuex, (Red Cage flora and kin) and finally Virifungi (Green Fungus like flora) 

Osteopurpalus: Includes Whirligig trees, Slinkees, Fuzzy Stalagmites, Shag-willow, and whistlewood.  Characterized by small brightly coloured flowers, soft spores with small balloons attached to them, spongy skeleton, and purple photosynthetic fur like covering.

Pinosteos: Includes various moss-and-grass-like families as well as nectar basins.  Characterized by small spores with balloons, no flowers and purple photosynthetic fur-like covering.

Rufuex: Includes all forms of cage trees (Light bulb trees, Step forest, etc. etc.) splots, tangle-cover, and desert cages.  Characterized by spongy skeleton, flowers, red photosynthetic fur-like covering, and hard seeds.

Virifungi: Includes Garden platforms, Down shrooms, pankaces, Trough plants, and many other small forms. Characterized by fleshy green photosynthetic material, small spores, and fleshy bodies.

Whirlygig trees:



Fuzzy stalagmite:



Splot:



Fauna:

Life on Viracocha is carbon based and breathes oxygen.

The dominant fauna at the moment is the class Sepiarachnae. (Name courtesy of Canis Lupus) Sepiarachnae all have beaks from their squid-like ancestors, they are viviparous, warm-blooded, they all breath through two octopus like nostrils on either side of their head, and also their gait is kind of like crickets as you'll see.  This is because their early ancestors were large jumping spider equivalents.  This gait has stopped Sepiarachnae from evolving cursial forms but instead they mainly use leaps and bounds as movement.


Their ancestory also allowed them to evolve an advanced echolocating system through a dolphin-like melon.  For ancient Sepiarachnaes, their solid mirror based eyes were mainly used when hunting in the day while at night they weren't very good a judging distances which were crucial when you needed to pounce on unsuspecting prey.   They needed something more effective at judging distances, a fatty melon was soon evolved and replaced their primitive and ineffective ears.  Many modern Sepiarachnae have only a poorly effective remnant of echolocation as they took more and more to the daylight, only using the melon for receiving sound.

Huaca is the second largest continent and is similar to South america on earth before the land bridge formed.  A land bridge has formed between Huaca and Urcuchillay. (The Equivalent of Antarctica)
Both continents are inhabited by Ortusasinus, the marsupials of Viracocha.  Instead of a pouch however, the females have a womb at the back which expands enormously and restricts the females movement in pregnancy. You can tell females from the male at a quick glance because under the tail the females have a crease where the womb would expand.

Ortusasinus

Magniarborivores

These are the largest land creatures on Viracocha.  They mainly feed on grass and which they must constantly graze upon to sustain their enormous bulk.  To aid them they have two extra saliva glands which act as stomachs, these glands make their heads very very heavy.  Inside their necks many gizzards help digest food even more.   Magniarborivore species inhabit plains and tundra from mid Huaca to Urcuchillay.

The range of the Magniarborivores:


Astrosuids

A very common family filling pig and tapir niches across Huaca and into Urcuchillay.  Some live in the thick rainforest of the north, the mountains of the west, inland plains, and also the tundras of the southern Huaca and northern Uku Pacha, only the pack and sea Ice deters them.  In the image the top creature is pregnant

Tylopedes

Thriving in every biome except the vegetation free pack and sea ice of Urcuchillay, their speed and two stomachs give them great success.  THe males have elaborate crests, while the females lack them.

Hastafelines

They have evolved their oral tentacles to deadly weapons.  This family inhabits everywhere on both continents.

Etomophons

A close relative of the hastafelines, except this guys and ant eater. He uses his first two pairs of oral tentacles to break through the hard nests and burrows of Hydraformes and other insectoids. Then it sweeps them up with its last pair of oral tentacles. The last pair of tentacles are feathery and covered in a sticky saliva. Many Etomophon also have poisonous saliva which they will spit at their predators or startler eyes





Neolemurians


Range:


Naiads

Another Ortusasinus family is Naiadae. These are the penguins of Viracocha. They cover most of the southern hemisphere and are the only Ortusasinus to be found on a continent other than Huaca or Urcuchillay. They inhabit the coastal regions of Huaca, Urcuchillay,and many small islands in the Supay and Copacati Oceans. On the Isolated island of Zara some Naiads have come to land and evolved into moa like forms as well as some nasty scythe wielding predators. All Naiads still have to move on land to give birth as they are Ortusasinians.

Pachiformes: The Dominant Group

The Flyers: Quadimandibiformes







Skeleton:




Doliocorns
The horn-like growths are the first and second pair of oral tentacles that have calcified, these are used to dispatch prey. They dominate across Hana Pacha and Kay Pacha due to their extremely quick breeding and effective method of killing prey. Some use their tentacles like saber-teeth, puncturing important veins or arteries. Others use heavy serrated tentacles which they slash at their prey until the bleed to death. Because this large bone growth blocks the beak from feeding, the last pair of tentacles are nimble enough to pick up food and feed the beak.

Their Range:





One domestic breed:



Viraunglata




Their range


Altrodentia




Ukucerva



Their range:



Neosaltonecros





Undulophocidae
move by udulating their bodies up and down




Facibrachiatherium






Other Phylums:

Thallatyranids





Xenoplankton



I will update with more text soon, for now enjoy.  Though their still is more images to come.
