Entirety animal Species: Saskunian by Goatlactic Entirety animal Species: Saskunian by Goatlactic
for :iconsadistskunk:... Well kinda, I made both an Entirety style alien loosely based on a wolverine (animal) and just a random image of a cutesy space wolverine because I didn't know which to go with. This guy turned out so badass I decided it definitely will be part of the Entirety universe (tis why its on a sheet).

Anyway for a while Karkarr has been noted as a planet of terrifying creatures and up to now besides the people there I've introduced: A tiny bat creatures and a common largely harmless herbivore. THIS HAD TO BE RESOLVED!
Saskunians are an enormous mustelid like species found in the northern hemisphere of Karkarr. Like the Rakka of Tempae they're an apex predator that will fuck up anything that happens along. They give literally 0 shits. They even regularly hunt and kill Tenaliam which is a rare occurrence in the universe (most xeno people have evolved beyond predation even if they are consider a prey animal species).
Their helmet evolved horn like growths which really serve no actual combat purpose but seem to be consider appealing to possible mates, males often have slightly larger set.
Also like all mammals of Karkarr they have 6 limbs with the two front ones being quite specifically adapted. The higher set is used for running through snow and tearing apart prey while the lower set is basically used to balance themselves while using the upper ones as saskunians have trouble balancing on their hind legs.

As far as designs go I just had fun with making something pretty threatening, also did something different with the fur to make it seem thicker and harder than my usual floof.

So enjoy!

Entirety and all creatures related to it belong to me

Ooh I really like this design, especially the fluffiness and those cool teeth and horns!  The consistent 6-limbed feature of the planet is a nice idea too, and your description of how they use them is really interesting. =)

Thanks :3, when developing the Tenaliam I kinda tried to make a biological reason they would have 6 limbs in my head and my conclusion "maybe its just a mammal thing on their planet" so that's what I went with!

A normal-sized wolverine can already fuck shit up. One can only imagine how much damage a huge one like this can do! :la:

Aaaaaaa these guys are so cool!! *w* Badass mustelids are always so damn badass, wah!
And without trying to sound like a total dick, I think the fluff, arms, colors etc. got me to thinking of Garetsumon so now I see these guys even more fondly, aaaah. Sorry to produce a "reminds me of"-comment since everyone hates those.

Thank you <3, for the record I don't mind "this reminds me of" comment as long as the person elaborate they aren't trying to accuse me of copying like you have done right now :nod:.

Ahhh those teeeth! I love the jagged swirled horns and nose, this guy does look vicious! The hard sharp edges do add to the whole threatening feel!
