Animorphs Races: Iskoort by Monster-Man-08 Animorphs Races: Iskoort by Monster-Man-08
What happens when Yeerks decide to co-exist with their hosts peacefully? You get a race of annoying salesmen that build Lego-Dr. Seuss skyscrapers! Seriously.

The Yeerks, now Yoorts, designed a host (the Isk) that needed them to survive, and altered themselves to need the host, though they still need Kandrona rays every three days. Every Iskoort is part of a guild that specializes in one or two things, such as Trading and Warmaking (the two shown above), and boy are they annoyingly persistent.

Although the Iskoort only appeared in one book, the idea of Yeerks peacefully co-existing with a (bio-engineered) host has been suggested several times (unfortunately, the rest of the Yeerk Empire never get to attempt this, as they were forced to morph something and stay in that form :cry: )

BOOK: Animorphs #26 - The Attack

They look lovely - just as I imagined them. :)

i imagine their form of locomotion being moonwalking since the Iskoort's legs are so odd, i like the accordion stomachs.

Really diggin' the stalk eyes coming out of the skull.

I thought that the were peaceful, but "war makers" seems to say otherwise.

Thank you extraordinarily much!! I have been meaning to try and find a good picture of these guys to try and make my own race like these in Spore. Now I do, and i am quite pleased.

Great job! I had a hard time visualizing these creatures, and this just made my life complete...well...not really...

I love how I can use Google or Bing Image search to search for an "Animorphs" alien species, and your drawings are almost always first.

This is a really cool series of pictures you have. I wasn't seriously into Animorphs, so I only recognize about half of them. The name Iskoort sounded familiar, though.

i had always imagined their personalities like jar jar binks.

an entire species of jar jar. i guess that was my idea of annoying back then.

Actually the Elimist created the Iskoort with the idea that the Yeerks would eventually find them and learn to coexist with their hosts just as the Iskoort did.
The Elimist recruited Animorphs job to save these guys from the Howlers.
And I don't recall all of the Yeerks being forced to stay in morph, just those on Earth that were morph-capable.

imagined them more bug-like-and-brown-dark-green, but that looks awesome and changed my mind!
CatchMeInADream Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2010
Iskoort! This was my FAVORITE book in the series! They were just so completely ridiculous! They were also the only species in the series that I just could NOT picture! Every time I tried, they looked completely different than the time before.

Damn, the Iskoort were as annoying as hell. I the Yeerks ever try this lifestyle I hope they keep their dignity, unlike these guys.
IssamShahid Featured By Owner Jun 24, 2009
I loved the Iskroot twist, great work on this. I really wish we had seen more of them in the series!
BoogaBoogaBooga Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2009
why does one of them have a skull for a face?
Monster-Man-08 Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2009
I always imagined the Warmaker Guild members wearing skulls to make themselves look tougher, and so they can head-butt other beings.
dodoman1 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
How do they even move?!
Monster-Man-08 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009
Very awkwardly! In fact, they have to go down stairs backwards.
dodoman1 Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Good thing they have those stalk eyes to see behind themselves with.
Crystania Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2009
Gotta love them lol

Ah, the Iskoort; such a strange race. Well-done; highly improved upon the design from your initial one. ^.^
