Aw, thank you. I wonder if this version contradicts something we know about morphology of our mischievous space oysters.

In my quest to draw the Inchoroi, these were the quotes I was able to find describing their physical aspect (taken from TWP and TFS):

Quote
The creature stood naked, as was his want, his wings folded into wicked hooks about either side of his great skull, which would have been cumbersome, had it not curved into a crest, narrow and deep, like an oyster set on end. A proportionate face hung from the fore, loutish with the absence of expression, nostrils drawn into shining gashes, sockets plugged with lobes of bare white meat. A second face filled the mouth, sheathing a second skull fused within the crocodilian jaws of the greater. Second eyes regarded the Hero-Mage with leering expectation. Second lips grinned about teeth like nails...
The light cast by the tripods slicked the creature in lines of luminous white, yellow and crimson, but otherwise, the intestinal translucence of its skin rendered it devoid of colour–the pallor of things drawn from the depths. Though he stood no more than half again as tall as man, he seemed enormous: for the wings, for the fiendish stoop, for the webbing of stone-dense muscle...
…his frame a sleek motley, like fish skinned and sutured together.
Eyes like bladders of ink, each reflecting the tripods across their shining curve. The fluting of gill-tissues along the neck.
Impatience in the incline of his shield-long head. Hatred in the flicker of membranes...
Aurang’s eyes flared crimson.
The Inchoroi beat his great scabbed wings,

It was half again taller than a man, with long folded wings curved like scythes over its powerful frame.  Save where it was mottled by black, cancerous spots, its skin was translucent, and sheathed about a great flared skull shaped like an oyster set on edge.  And within the gaping jaws of that skull was fused another, more manlike, so that an almost human face grinned from its watery features.

… then its great black eyes fell upon Aengelas.

Beaneath the monstrosity’s claws, …

… the thing pressed its bruised phallus…

Regardless, I love your take on them.  Who's to say they didn't go through an iteration that looks more like yours?   ;)  I imagine they looked different on every world they visited.
No whistling on the slog!

I love that it isn't very Geiger esque and that they're just giant vaginas. Heh.

Oh, thank you for these. They will help a lot in case of future drafts.

Yeah, it was a main point this time; to consider their grafting lifestyle and (bakkerspoken?) aquatic origin. Like an oyster who ascends to fins and tentacles (future wings and members) to rape better & increasingly.

The Horns (again...)
Holy forgess of ssalvation!

Kind of Gothamic but very cool.

On a side note, wouldn’t it be kind of cumbersome for the Consult to navigate the Ark if it landed vertically on it’s head?

They knew they wanted to stay in Earwa. Maybe they started building a city out of the buried metal.

Maybe.

By the way, I recall that, in either the False Sun or the books, there is mention of “the upright horn,” which to me implied that only one of them is standing upright.

Oh, I like this one quite a bit.

Took me a second to realize he was behind the waterfall. That is awesome.
