Trust the tiny octopus.
Parabolando, parte 11
No inferno, como na vida, na maioria das vezes as melhores soluções para problemas impossíveis são justamente as ideias mais idiotas. Como botar cruzes, bosta e ganja numa pilha e dançar em volta. Mas vai que dá certo, né?
Você ceeeertamente já viu o teaser da Max Reebo Tv a essa altura, eu imagino. Não viu? Olha aqui:
Então amanhã tem vídeo, entendeu? Entendeu. Muitas perguntas, todas as respostas.
"I am Groot !"
Sansa lets me know when I been on tumblr too long
I’m glad you brought this up! The thing about sentient animals is that for some reason a lot of people come to the conclusion that they have to look like people— but that is not the case! I once saw a dino book where the artist was told “Troodons were thought to have been very close to becoming sentient” and decided to draw a half Troodon/half man. That… is not really what sentience means.
I think it’s far more interesting and challenging to design races that are merely extremely intelligent animals (though they can still have differences from actual modern day animals). You can think about what kind of shelters these animals wold build to suit their bodies— whether they be much smaller than human homes in the case of birds, or much larger in the case of elephants! You have to wonder if they would need clothes, what they might use clothes for, how the clothes would be shaped. You have to think about what appendage they would use for tools.
Modern birds are extremely adept at using their claws and beaks to help them, so would probably have tools shaped for that, while elephants have awesome trunks to help them out. And octopuses would be incredible as sentient creatures! They have eight arms of pure muscle and no pesky bones to get in the way.
I encourage everyone who wants to make a sentient race of animals to consider straying away from thinking human shapes are the most useful shapes! They worked for us, but there are a lot of ways to solve the same problems we solved.
BUT if you want to make human shaped animals, that is also okay. It can be really fun to think about animal/human hybrids. Except I’d stray away from elephant trunk-arms, trunks go on faces only!
