Balva'ka the Karkhinosian by MnStrptrSkrn Balva'ka the Karkhinosian by MnStrptrSkrn
A personal project I created to learn more about 3d modelling techniques.

Balvaka is a Sanskrit word which means "One who is hiding" and is also the word for Crab. Karkhinos is a greek word meaning Crab, so there you go. :P

Balva'ka, or more affectionately named "Bal" by his co-worker and friends, is a nice, um, Karkhinosian with a penchant for mischief, sometimes cracking joke at the expense of other people's small misfortunes. Despite his quirky nature, he is generally well-liked as he can be serious when he needs to be, and is actually very helpful and loyal to his friends. I thought a little backstory might help. :P

I think Bal is cool, eh is an alein, and doesn't afraid of anything.

It reminds me a lot of a Prothean from the Mass Effect series. Like, a lot.

Btw when I first read the name of his species, I read it as Kardashian. I laughed a bit too hard.
