female drell concept. my reasoning: she’s bigger because pregnancy was quite an ordeal in their home environment of scare resources, so the females had to be built to help the developing offspring survive. for no particular reason, I am supposing drell are ovoviviparous, meaning the female retains an egg inside her body until it is ready to hatch. many earth reptiles have this mode of birth, including boas.
of course these are just ideas!
great art and an awesome idea! i don’t mean to be THAT ASSHOLE but apparently the canon, according to the codex, is that they give live birth to offspring that can eat solid foods. however the egg idea is pretty cool too and would be more biologically correct for the species they’re based on… BUT BIOWARE HA. but yeah just throwing that out there, not trying to be a correcting dick djsjskakkwkebd
thanks for your comment, and you’re not being that person at all. we’re both right!
ovoviviparous species actually give live birth like mammals, the difference being no placental connection, and are nurtured by yolk before birth instead. no eggs are laid.
the fact that the codex mentions the offspring eats solid food is what makes me think ovoviviparity is the intention for drell in the first place, since my understanding is that placental mammals only drink the mother’s milk until a certain age, while reptiles have no such thing.
trust me. I am the last one to willingly contradict canon for my precious headcanons
