Found  these three on a random surf:

An good ol' "regular" brown Ur-Quan, a Spathi & Vux and a Yehat/Pkunk confrontation.

I kinda like how she presented the "birdies". They seem far more...believable and realistic this way. A dinosaur theme works well with the Yehat and to a lesser extent with the Pkunk. Props anyway.

You probably know for these, but hey, what the heck. Too bad she stopped drawing, this art is awesome Tongue

Yeah, those a great.  Actually I liked them so much I'm using them as reference material Smiley

Also the Ur-Quan by Krejall here.  But mostly I'm using Arne's stuff because it's the biz!

For some reason , all the Ur-Quan fanarts ignore completely one canon piece of information about the 'Quans - their dimensions !
It is clearly stated that they are two meters across and ten meters long , giving the appearance of a larvae more than a caterpillar / centipede .

Found Krejall's profile out there on deviant. Proved to be the right thing to do too, because this Kzer-za pic and Kohr-Ah poster are amazing. And quite creepy too (in a good way).

Although the Kzer looks somewhat...strange. As if something was wrong with hir's head or s/he was anorexic or something Tongue So I like the Kohr better...so guess I found my new desktop background then Cheesy But still this art is formidable; respect.

Also here is some more art from the deviant: three nice sketches, your everyday Ur-Quan, poor Fwiffo and something that zarla would love for sure Smiley

And a host of great art by zenzmurfy (mostly spathi, ship designs and of course the beautiful Talana).

None of this is mine, just sharing the finds so we all may enjoy these great fan art pics. So enjoy!  Smiley

Wow, that Kohr-Ah on the poster really looks scary and vicious!
Now it's quite clear why there's only one of those on each ship Wink

Actually , If they kill everything - doesn't this mean that there are ALL Kohr-Ah crewmen in the Marauder ?

I like that Kohr-Ah concept with the arms coming down like that. Rolling it up on a shelf works too.

I made robotic crew for my Kohr-Ah ships (old concept). I think the Syreen can lure out robotic Mmrnmhrm (but not Slylandro which appears to be more like mounted processors and/or not sentient enough).

Yup, I did on her very own UQM fan page Cheesy

Here, I'll quote the first post with all the links:

You probably heard for her people, but I thought that it would be appropriate to make a tribute on the UQM forums for one of the greatest SC fans ever, who is also a very talented artist and believe it or not she's not a geek but a geekess (99.98% of SC fans I know are male).

Here's a link for her gallery over at devianart and a link to her very own SC hub with even more beautiful SC related art.

You may also be interested in a UQM walkthrough made by her and a really nice flash movie with SC thematic Grin
