Fraggle Bones by Negaduck9 Fraggle Bones by Negaduck9
I like drawing skeletons. To me they are not representations of death, but of structure. Since I've been Fragglin' out, why not try figuring out what a Fraggle skeleton looks like?

Most of it is basically humanoid, with alterations to accommodate their size and lifestyle. The skull was a bit tricky, however. We know they have teeth, even though we hardly ever see them (Convincing John being the most obvious exception), so I've given them herbivore molars & incisors, no eyeteeth. Eye sockets on top, of course. Precious little brain case, but they seem to make do. This pic was drawn without reference material, by the way, so don't look too closely at the hands and joints.

No Fraggles were harmed in the making of this image, despite it looking like something exhumed from the back of Junior Gorg's garden. A Fraggle simply fell asleep while waiting in line at the airport and got slipped through the X-ray machine.

EDIT: Argh! I left out the hyoid bone. What the heck was I thinking?How are they supposed to sing all day without that?

Looks interesting indeed.
Well, however I've always thought that Fraggles are bird-like creatures of a sort.

Some people do take them that way. However, they seem mammalian to me because they have teeth (look at Convincing John), they have tails, they have flexible snouts, and they don't seem to understand what eggs are ("Wembley's Egg"), indicating that they give live birth.

This is hilarious! I one day again will restart my collection of skulls; like you, bones fascinate me...the architecture of structure, yes indeed. This is adorable.

This pic is many things, but I'd never expected anyone to call it adorable.

I'm glad you see things the way I do as far as structure goes. Can you imagine Newsie's skull? It'd look like someone had stretched the area between the eyes and lower jaw like taffy.

This is very well done, excellent work!:)

I have actually had a thought about drawing a Fraggle skeleton, (and/or muscles and organs) as well, but quickly thought against it. I just didn't want to think that much about Fraggle innards I guess. But yet I have no problem doing that with Pokemon... :shrug:

I like drawing structure. I have a very analytical mind, and I like to figure out what's going on "under the hood." As I'm also a fanfic writer, that also means working out a lot of character psychology. Fortunately that's also fun for me.

I'm weird that way. ;)
