I give you... Tux:

>>> Image removed by JDA because I was actually "leeching" the site it came from. Please see the two next posts. Thank you. <<<

... 't is the Linux mascot !  Wink


Regarding the Mycon throwing spores into the Captain's head... that doesn't seem like cross-breeding at all!... Not even like it would result in a mutant!

Rather the Mycon spores would be a parasite to the Human host. It could be something "common" as a flu or as brutal as in the film Alien - The Eight Passenger...

But bear in mind: Mycons are fungii (like mushrooms). Fungii usually dwell better in hot (Mycons love hot= and humid (erm... unlike the Mycons...?) envrionments. And well... you can get fungii "infections" in the palm of your feet, specially in
shower-rooms (when your feet are naked, and in a hot and humid environment, where several people come by). These infections inflict damage to your skin and are called Mycosis ...  Cheesy


In general, regarding this issue, I agree it is very difficult here on Earth for two different species to inter-breed.
And when it does happen (e.g. horse + donkey = mule), you usually get an infertile half-breed; hence, a variant, NOT species. Still, not a new species it might be, it would still be a half-breed, yes. Plus, you never know before two species adctually try to mate...  Grin

But by the knowledge we have on Earth "standard", it is amazingly unlikely, specially with complex beings such as with those present in this game (more than with unicelular ones).

On the other hand... thought almost impossible for two Ur-Quan Masters' species to naturally interbreed, technology might do it! We have done it here right on Earth already! Think transgenicWink


About sketching... aah!... I'l leave it to the masters!...  Grin
Great ones already, BTW! Keep it up!  Cool

And they're actually darn right NOT liking me! I did leech their bandwidth or something...

So, if you want to see Tux, the Linux penguin, do pay them a visit:
http://www.crystalxp.net/

Now, I did look around and, CrystalXP being a place for customising your Linux GUI, custom Tuxes would be expected... So you may not actually find the original, common Tux...

Still, CrystalXP has some really nice Tuxes and.. some rather odd too! lol

If you do want to see the original, just google for images with "Tux" on the name. You'll get there.  Wink

Sorry for the annoyance, everyone. I guess I'll edit my prior post now and remove the image.

I actually like it - the concept is rather cool by itself.
Like the second one best, though the first one having fur on the legs is pretty cool too.  Wink

How about multiple cross-breeds? I challenge you to draw this: an Ur-Quan and a Umgah breed, to form an Umquan, which breeds with a half-Supox, half-Spathi. This forms an Umpox-Spathquan. Disgusting.

Hmm , just a thought - a cross between Slylandro , Umgah and a Spathi should really look like the Flying Spaghetti Monster

How about crossing an Orz and a Mycon to my a Mycorz?  We already got to see the beginning of the Syruman...  How about an Androquan, or maybe a Shofiquan? (Alright the latter was kinda wrong, it'd be like some kind of tarantula.  Besides, the Ur-Quan aren't even humanoid)

In one of the earlier TW ideas for a visit to an alternate reality (that was half a joke from the start) a Shmmr was suggested.

I always liked that idea though. What if the Mrn chose to merge with the Shofixti? Smiley
Shmmr!

In one of the threads Arne posted something that would give good Spathi/Mmrnmhrm mix .
