Spore: Creation Corner / Kanetsv - My new creature
« on: March 27, 2006, 07:13:48 pm »
Okay I made a new creature!
This is it!

I think it's my best yet!

Okay just kidding.

THIS is my new creature.

This is the Kanetsv in it's creature stage.
The planet the Kanetsv live on is so far from the star it orbits that the planet is in a permanent night.
The planet is incredibly volcanically active, which provides all of the heat for the creatures.
There are vast plains filled with steam vents and hotsprings.
Many of the volcanoes are erupting all the time with a constant flow of magma.
The creatures on the planet generally live on the plains where there is the most concentrated amount of heat.
Each creature has one, or several, ways of dealing with the severe lack of light on the planet.
Most, like the Kanetsv, have many large incredibly sensetive eyes to see in what little light there is.
Some have increased senses of smell or hearing.
You might think being able to see heat would help, but with all of the volcanic activity it would be impossible to tell creature from geyser cloud.
The Kanetsv are herbivores that roam the geyser plains.
They have a unique defensive ability to ward off most predators.
Like a firefly or an anglerfish on earth, they can light up parts of their bodies.
Of course for the Kanetsv it is 99% of their body that can be light up.
They are able to make any shape or color they want on their skin.
The most common however is an incredibly concentrated blast of white light which temporarilly blinds the attacker (some of the bigger Kanetsv have been known to permanently blind an attacker).
They have flaps that can fold down over their eyes to protect them when they need to use their defensive light blast.
Because of this most species have learned to just leave the Kanetsv alone.
This ability to make shapes and colors on their skin is also their way of communicating.
Kanetsv do not have voice boxes of any kind.
Because of this they have already formed the beginnings of a written language even before reaching a tribal stage.
They use different symbols to corrospond with different things and activities.
If they want to go to a nearby tree, they will make a representation of that tree.
The ball on the end of their "tails" are the most controllable parts of their bodies.
They can make very detailed pictures on the ball.
The way their lights work, when they display an image, it will stay there even when they stop concentrating on it.
Any patterns or symbols will stay light untill the Kanetsv makes a decision to change it or turn it.
Kanetsv have a very large brain located in the humps on their backs.
Most of the brainpower goes to controlling the lights.

The picture shows them in a green/red just because I wanted to add color.
They are naturally a dark grey color, which isnt very interesting to look at.

Anyway, thats enough for now.
These are the creatures I mentioned in my Kawona thread that will eventually keep all of the galaxies records.

Spore: Creation Corner / Kawona/Kawenu - My new creature(s)

Allright, finally decided to make my own creature.
It's name is the Kawona.
It is basically a very odd looking duck.
Have not yet designed it's culture/habitat, but do plan to.
It has 4 wings, 2 arms, 2 legs, and a so-far completely useless head-fin.
Capable of flight and swimming on the surface of water.
It uses it's tail to propel itself in the water since it's feet are just the 2 toes.
I did not notice untill after it was finished but the wings should be much much larger than I have them drawn here.

Forgive the not-so-great drawing please.
It's been a while since I've actually just sat down and tried to draw something.

Removed un-related creature.
