Concepts of mine that I don't have a drawing of yet, but there's a description of.

Forest Hopper - This creature is modeled after the one on The Future is Wild (the one that hopped about on 1 leg - didn't see that animal except for in the preview though). It evolved from an octopus when it's legs fused as it came onto land. It lives in the forest, especially near rivers. It has a modified "second mouth" beneath its' fused limbs. These pick up little incests and other bugs off the forest floor. The "mouth" is actually a secondary opening to the stomach. The main mouth is used for munching on low-laying vegetation. These are solitary creatures. (Note: 11/12/2005 - I finally found out the other day that this was the "Desert Hopper" in TFiW that I was thinking about.) It looks something like this: http://img16.exs.cx/img16/6960/vbsporehopper4od.gif

Sea Crawler - This is a starfish-like creature with started out in the coastal waters, but moved inland as more predators came. It has evolved to move quickly on land, but much rather perfers trees. It only comes down onto land to mate, but that's when its' at its' most vulnerable. It feasts on the sap from trees, and leaves. These creatures are also solitary.

Greater Sea Crawler - These are the same sea crawlers that have begun to live in the forest, but have become larger. They have started to form webs between their 5 limbs. Once it starts to glide, it will be known as the Greater Tree Glider. This creature has become a bit more predatory, eating small insects, and occasionally tiny animals. It crawls into the trees, and drops down onto its' prey. These are mostly solitary, but sometimes travel in very small groups. (Note: 11/12/2005 - This could be the ancestor of the Boreal Starfish)

Wolfps - (part wolf, part wasp) This creature was once a fish, which evolved into a flying fish, and is probably the most interesting of creatures. Drying vegetation forced it to fly further and further inland, forcing it to develop stronger wings, and more feet-like fins. It still has its' stinger, which it would use when swooping down on prey. Future generations would develop stronger fins/feet as they started staying longer and longer in smaller ponds and lakes. As their journeys took them north, tiny hairs turned into fur. One might think it's a dragon, but it actually resembles a wolf. It still maintains some fish-like characteristics, as well as a modified stinger. It's a highly predatory pack animal. It lives in coastal areas, and in forests with huge lakes and rivers. (Note: 11/12/2005 - This could be the ancestor of the Advanced Flying Fish)

Daggertail - It's tail isn't really a dagger, but it gets its' name from the two thumb-like prongs with excrete a poison. This is the creature with the really long tail (and a 1 foot rubbery-section). Being stung by the poisonous prongs is like being stabbed by a dagger. It's a very sociable animal, and is an omnivore. However, it only eats very small animals when it can (Opurtunistic hunter). It much perfers vegetation, as that's what gives their tail the poisonous quality. This creature lives in the plains, but will venture into the forest.

Sundancer - These are odd creatures. They never evolved much past using sunlight as energy, like plants. They also can absorb athmospheric gasses to breathe. As a result, they are rather flat, and broad. They have many modified mouths on the bottom of the creature that can digest the grass it walks over. They are extremely solitary, and really don't do much except bask in the sun, and much on a few blades of grass. Their skin is black, to absorb more sunlight, and it also excretes a foul oder to keep predators away.


I may edit this post to add the drawings for the other creatures I listed.

Hey, great idea! Now I have a reason to draw my creatures, I should be able to draw and scan some by tomorrow. Funny thing is next I'm watching a programme about aliens, and after that Star Wars III - plenty of inspiration!  ;)

Update...spent a bit of time drawing as I said I would...and here are the links. They are not art pad, as I am much better drawing free hand.

Heres my new picture. I have spent about 5 hours drawing this to the best of my abilities. This animal (that I do not have a name for yet) will be my main species which manages my galaxy. I have drawn version of battle armour and a purple version of the animal to show the versatility of the textures, and if possible, it would be good for it to be able to camouflage itself like a chameleon.

   I would like suggestions on a name, beginning with Tri, because of the three main horns. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated...I hope you like them and that it provides you with inspiration.

I don't know why but macromedia flash player 8 keeps popping up an alert saying that the script could cause the movie to slow down or become unresponsive. after several clicks it finally loaded though. I think the problem with artpad is that with really complicated pics or ones that have alot of 'movements' cause it to lag or something.

pretty cool though.

Thanks Hydromancerx. I was looking through your drawings for a favorite, but they're all so good I can't decide, I'm looking forward to see your next drawings. I'm going to keep my mind open to suggestions for my creature's name, but for now it is called Trivec (Thanks Vivec). I will do a few more drawings, but I'm not sure when, could be tonight, or could be next week. Anyhoo I'll keep checking this forum for new creatures, they're all really cool.  ;)

although I have made a few artpad drawings I'm nowhere as good artistically as you guys are.

although I'll post a few anyway

a pic of a Sqw'wq'ii, a race I'm doing in the planet spore stories, I need to update this though http://artpad.art.com/gallery/?ipecvr15opjg

these two are just sketches of how the limbs are modified in a later evolution:(this is the front two obviously) http://artpad.art.com/gallery/?ipnygz1n12s0  and here is a sketch of thier walking feet: http://artpad.art.com/gallery/?ipo98ce97m8

you guys can check out the planetspore story I'm doing here if you like http://planetspore.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=58

and one of a shrimp-type thing thats in a spore-like story on the gamespot real spore union boards: http://artpad.art.com/gallery/?iptvj6heosw its of yet unnamed though.

If you notice they are all from a common ancestor too. They all have 4 eyes (2 on each side) and have 6 limbs.
Title: Re: Section For Spore Artpad and Drawings of Creature Creations
Post by: smjjames on November 15, 2005, 03:36:05 pm
the second pair of eyes are kinda tiny so I didn't see them until I looked at the therenzoursus. Also, the Kelp whale only has 2 pairs of limbs (modified into fins), although if it evolved from a land ancestor its entirely plausible for the back pair of limbs to have atrophied or something.
Title: Re: Section For Spore Artpad and Drawings of Creature Creations
Post by: Hydromancerx on November 15, 2005, 05:00:11 pm
They have a large eye and then small eye. The small eye is a small black dot in front of and slightly down from the main eye on all of them. I know becuse i copied the exact same parts to amke each of them. And yes the Kelp whale lost its 3rd pain like a whale.

Post by: Leng on November 15, 2005, 05:19:55 pm
it seems to have kept the fingers on the third limb sticking out.  fun.  did you actually go through an evolutionary process from the common ancestor, or just give them similar taxonomy?
Title: Re: Section For Spore Artpad and Drawings of Creature Creations
Post by: Hydromancerx on November 15, 2005, 08:32:49 pm
Similar Taxonomy since the Scyth Bear was made first, then the kelp whale, then the tricroc and finally the double sea wing. Though i could always rever evolve them down to a an amphibian with 6 legs and 4 eyes etc

Hey i havent posted in some time, but i check the forum everyday, this art pad thing is kinda fun, however the style of art i can make is limited compared to that of my own creatures i have drawn by hand. my art pad style might seem a bit...childbook like, but i assure you ill be scanning some of my drawings some time, and youll get a real idea of my art style. well anyways, i made this..um thing..it kinda popped in my head, and then i added...alot to it..

Here is a tribal phase of a new creature i made. I think this will be my first creature unless i can think of a better one.

Naucean - Shaman
(http://spore-planet.rpgs.sytes.net/naucean_shaman.jpg)

Note: The patterns on him are painted on. They are not his natural skin coloring. They are suppose to add the sense of culture and mysticism to him.

Post by: smjjames on November 20, 2005, 04:57:31 pm
cool, is it supposed to be on the same world as those other 4 eyed creatures you made?

and the hands are evolved from its multiple tougnes or something.

cool, is it supposed to be on the same world as those other 4 eyed creatures you made?

and the hands are evolved from its multiple tougnes or something.

They are tenticles that sit in a mouth-like cavity. At the back of that is a beak like a squid in which leads into the true mouth. The tenticles also are have chromatophores and can change colors like squids. They use them in a matting dance in which they open their mouth-like cavity very wide and then wave around the tenticles with flashing bright colors.

Also i was taking things i liked and mixd them togheter into a creature. it has the body shap of a raptor, but the mouth of the baleen squid, then the 4 eye of the creatures from before, then a whale tail, skin and bowhole on the top of the head. Also i addedon 2 of the mouth tenticles a 2 thumbed hand with 4 fingers total.

I am planning to make a reverse evoliton for this guy, tracing him back to single cells and work more on what cultures these aliens have. Like what sort of style of buildings, culture and other tribal things included in Spore.

Post by: smjjames on November 20, 2005, 06:58:03 pm
a reverse evolution of that would be cool. did they evolve from a creature that went into the water and then came back out? or did they evolve in the water from the start?
Title: Re: Section For Spore Artpad and Drawings of Creature Creations
Post by: Hydromancerx on November 20, 2005, 09:51:24 pm
"a reverse evolution of that would be cool. did they evolve from a creature that went into the water and then came back out? or did they evolve in the water from the start?"

I meant i will have to make the evolution up and trace ti bacwards so each adpation makes sense to why it looks the way it looks.

And sicne it has lungs on the top i am guessing it evolved in the water, then came out for lungs and then went back later and then back out again thus keeping many of it marine features from the 2nd time going in.

Anywho. We shall see.  ;D

Naw go ahead and try it out. I am not familiar with what happend in that game and it seems very long to go over. I sudgest those of you who have done it do it even if you feel you are not good at it. I persoanlly got better out of that factor. Not waiting on others to do it and just did it my self. Over time i got a little bit better. And personally i still think mine looks like crap. :P

Now if no one is willing to do it then at least repost here in a single post each stage. I don't really want to sift through all 15 page just for the information. Then i will see if i can create somthing from the descriptions once reposted here.

Alright if you could ever get around to it seeing as you have like 10000000000 other projects at work please add to your list a "Gracken" which is a awesome sig legged crocodile with sweet horns and a yellow frill of scales. if you do this ill probably piss myself with joy  ;D

Here is what eat the woolly gruntheriums. Hope ya like it. If ya notice it has armor, back spikes, a tempanic membrane like frogs have rather than ears, 4 saw teeth (2 on each side) like a sabrtooth tiger has. 3 legs (2 in front and one in back). On each leg tiny hooked talons and on the feet 3 toes wich have retratable claws. It also has 2 spikes on the eye ridges. Its colors mimic trees. And his name means "tree lizard". Since it is mimic a tree.

BTW i got the tripod idea after watching War of the Word for the first time today. That is a great movie and very cool alien designs.

It uses its "trunk" and tail as limbs, and its legs have turned into stabilisers. I also think the forearms should be longer.

Ah, much better. Also very nice. I suppose the bit about the tree should have clued me in, but wasn't completely sure. Either way I had just been thinking if the wooly guy is anything like megatherium as the claws and build suggest the predator would almost have to be twice the size if it didn't want to get its butt whipped.

Well i was going to make the Woolly one alot bigger but then i thought maybe it would be a little too big. And yes the claws were goign to be like a megatherium. What size would you have the woolly guy? I am open to adjustments.

I thought the Eohippus Gruatherium would be somewhat smaller than a human, while its about human sized iin the pic (which would be about the size of an average horse), unless its not as far back in the Gruatherium's evolution as I thought it is.

As far as the wooly guy and the predator, if that Arborsaurus can stand comfortably on two of its legs, I'm sure it can use one of its powerful looking front limbs as a weapon against the wooly gruatherium as those feet could be used as clubs to stun or knock down the animal and keep it distracted for a split second (often enough time for any predator) to lunge in. Using this method would keep the sensitive parts away from the claws as the gruatherium is likely to target the foot as the predator tries to club it.

Yeah the smaller one is actually pretty big. It has been a grassier and low shrub eater for quite some time. But due to its trunk moth eatting it was not too efficient. Thus better and more efficient grassers pushed him out untothe woolly version. The woollies eat from the trees and have to stand on their back legs and stretch up to get the leaves. This leaves them venerable to the sawtooth. He stand still like a crocodile, minics a tree and moves slowly in the wind. Then when one get too close it bites it in the back and then eats it. However with the huge claws on the woolly the sawtooth would not even try to get it from the front in fear that its legs would get injured. And a sawtooth that can't stand is a starving sawtooth.

(http://spore-planet.rpgs.sytes.net/quilledslurp.jpg)

The Quilled Slurp in an insectivore who eat social insect colonies. Like the monarch and other poisonous creature he displays black and orange to show he is poisonous. Like the the coral snake its tongue has stripes of black yellow and red. Wen in danger it flicks out its tongue waving it as a warning. This quills have deadly neurotoxins similar to a cobra's. He gets this from eating the insect which harvest poisonous plants and eat them. No other creature can eat these insects except the slurp. Not many predators bother them in fear of accidentally getting poked by the very deadly spikes.

He digs into the colony using is short back limbs and walks along on his long front ones. He has poor vision and no external ears. But by placing his snout on the mount he can feel the vibrations of the insects and know where is the best place to dig. His mouth has created a long tube like an anteater and cannot eat anything else.

it has a head frill like a triceratops but it works like the ear of a bat. On its snout is also has a place in which sound can bounce back. It has no eye so it has to "see" its prey in the pitch black caves with sound. It has 2 huge nostrils on its face to also sniff down prey in the dark. It uses the 3 legs to climb around on the stalactites and stalagmites. And used the 2 other arms that hand down from the middle to snatch up the prey into its fangs. In which it pumps digestive fluids into it and sucks it out like a spider. It also has 2 claw-like mandibles to hold the creature in place. These have razor sharp spikes in which it pokes deep within the prey while it sucks it dry. The feet on the 3 legs can hold on to the sides of the walls alike a gecko so it can even hit upsidedown on the cave roof.

The Gallopelope is a 3 legged herbivore much like Earth's gazelles. It has 3 eye on its head. One on each side and one on top that faces forward. It has horns comming out of the back of its jaw like a triceratops and even have a beak and teeth like one. Its legs are strong and made for running like an ostrich. But unlike an ostrich it has 3 toes. These creature grazers mostly on grasses and out run predators at extreme speeds.

Yes but with another 2 headed one. The sexual organs are around the same spot (belly button) and then the male mounts the female while she is on her back/side. In short its like perpendicular rather than just straight behind as in most Earth animals.

well if it had a single brain like the puppeteers of the Ringworld series by Larry Niven, and it was in the body, it could have two headlike extensions with a mouth and eyes.

otherwise I don't see much point in having two actual heads. Although having one end bieng a fake 'head' is a different matter as its a form of camoflauge.

So one can eat while the other looks out for danger.

there's a good reason NOT to have two heads.  your reflexes would get mixed up.  with two brains distant from eachother, they would each be trying to do the same thing and the signals would get mixed up.  if you had a single central brain the signals would take too long to get from your eyes to the brain.

Alien two-headed weridos would probably have brains that work differently than ours.  It is entirely conceivable that creatures could still function even if they had multiple brains.  Lots of real life animals get by just fine with zero brains.

(http://spore-planet.rpgs.sytes.net/umbilicalstiltwalker.jpg)

Here is my Umbilical Stilt Walker. It is a tall creature in which has 3 sub creatures on it. The main creature has 3 long legs and 3 eyes with a mushroom-like head. Coming out of its mushroom head are 3 little creatures connected by durable umbilical cord tails. The main creature has no mouth and depends upon the smaller ones to live. If one get pulled off it can grow another little creature. The little umbilical creatures jump on to nearby trees and eat fruit, nuts, leaves and insects. Also occasionally eggs. Each one has a small brain in which it uses to navigate the treetops.

The main creatures brain is constantly looking out for predators and new trees to travel to. When walking they peach atop the head until they can jump off and climb around the tree tops for food. When getting water they dangle down and slurp up the water. The creature breathes out of the bottom on the mushroom head. So air goes out to the little creatures but food comes back to the main body to be digested in the huge gut atop the tripod legs.

now that is a better version of a multiple-head creature.  each of the sub-heads has a semi-independent function and a specific area of the body to work with, and it actually makes sense.

This is a very simple creature. The first one I have tried to put together. Basically it has many feet like a caterpillar which it uses to roll along with. The feet contain the mouths of the creature to absorb either grass, nutrients from the ground (like a worm) of similar. The circular green area is the digestive system and the brain is the red area in the center supported by several tubes that provide nutrition. It has no weapons and relies on speed for defense.

(http://spore-planet.rpgs.sytes.net/vacsac.jpg)

Here is my Vacsac creature. It is both an air and water creature. While in the air it fills its huge blimp like sacs with hydrogen it in which it separates out from water. Its tail has 2 pairs of wing rudders. When they are kept up they are used as a rudder. But when they flap they can be made to use forward. Or a combination of both. It can also float with the wind by using the wing/rudders like sails rather than flapping them.

 Below its body it has 8 squid-like tentacles in which it can grasp up prey in both the sea or air. It has a strange mouth that has rowssharp cutting teeth all around. After boring into its prey with this mouth it get suck up into the body. It has 2 compound eye on eye stalks like a lobster and has 2 huge nostrils behind the eyes. It it must escape quickly it can let out the hydrogen sacs through the huge nostrils and fly backwards.

When underwater it uses more conventional methods of buoyancy by just sucking up air from the surface. It is both at home in either environment but its biggest fear is getting one of its sacs popped. If that happens it can die. Thankfully they are very strong membranes that are still light. Also in the air it can just float around waiting for prey and ambush it. Its coloring are like sharks or orcas in that they are dark on the top while light on the bottom. This is so those looking up will have trouble seeing it against the light blue sky. And for those looking down it will be hard to see against the dark blue ocean.

The Talonose Swingtail is arboreal creature who swings from tree to tree with its trunk nose and long tail. Both have a 4 digit hand with 2 fingers and 2 thumbs on each. It has no proper limbs like arms or legs. It has 2 eye and 2 sensitive ears. It also has rodent-like teeth. it eats nuts and fruits and occasionally insects. They are very social animals like monkeys. And will groom each other with their noses and tails.  They cannot really walk on the ground very well so are limited to hanging from trees.

The Webtailed Earwing is a strange flying creature. It uses it ears to fly. its body has become very small so it can fly. its front legs have owl-like talons in which it can swoop down and pick up prey. It also has a crocodile-like mouth full of sharp teeth in which it uses to get prey too. It preaches in trees and can hunt in both the forest and the water. It has large eyes so it can see prey from far away like a hawk can. Its back legs are almost gone and have no purpose. Its tail is separate into a webbing and acts like the tail eathers of birds. When perched it puts its ears hanging off its back.

Here is my Hotheaded Iceslider. it lives in the deep polar ice by melting the ice with its very hot head crest. It has a high metabolism to create such heat. It will feel the vibrations of the creatures above and melt the ice so they fall into the hole and eat them. The fatter the prey the better because it need that energy to melt more holes. It walks around by sliding on its fat belly like a penguin. And only has 2 back limbs to push im forward. The head crest can be used like a heated axe to both met the ice, fight for mates or even burn prey before it bits into it with its shark-like teeth.

Here is my Bubbletoed Malloon. It floats on 4 foot sacs in which it can inflate to float on the top of the water. it has a flat paddle/rudder tail in which it moves back and forth to propell its self on the water surface. its head has 3 eyes (one on either side and one on the top. It also has a long crane-like neck and a beak full of crocodile-like teeth in which it uses to catch fish-like marine animals. It can walk on land to nest by deflating its foot sacs, but spends most of its life on the water's surface hunting, sleeping, mating and playing. It also on rare occasions will swim in the water if it has to. it will streamline its leas back and uses its tail to swim through the water and stick it head above the surface. It will only do this if its injured the foot sacs or diving deep into the water to escape air predators.

This deadly nd intelligent creature is about the size of a wolf. They have 6 legs but the front 2 act like small hands in which they an manipulate things. They are very intelligent and have been known to use primitive stone tools. The mid and back legs have retractable claws like Earth's big cats. On the back feet it has raptor like scythe toes in which it uses to puncture the jugular veins on prey. Their head has 4 eye. But only 2 are the major eyes the small ones only detect heat. The mouth is full of razor sharp teeth and 2 poisonous fangs like a snake. Its poison is just like the poison of the "Curare" plant of Earth. "Curare is an example of "a non-depolarizing muscle relaxant which blocks the acetylcholine receptors on the post synaptic membrane of the neuromuscular junction."

Yeah Hydroman is a great artist, he reminds me of my sister, who can draw a horse like nobodys business.  ;D A while ago she drew a horse skeleton, then drew lines of muscle over that, then drew the actual horse over that. The result was a very realistic picture of a horse. It looked a bit like Hydroman's Kurare, but... horsey.

She also does cartoony animals, in both computer art and hand drawn.

EDIT: She made this picture of my uncle's cat basically because I wanted her to. I think it took 1-2 hours. Maybe a bit less.

well, they're flying. Not a lot of krill or plankton around. I imagine they just swoop down and eat small children or something.

Why small children? There's just as much crap floating around in the air as there is swimming around in the sea. Well, maybe not as much, but still a lot. They could maintain their filter feeding ways and devour swarms of bugs or flocks of birds. Maybe the ocassional small airplane.

I finally decided to do one of the creature I've been thinking about for months.
I don't know what to call it yet.
http://artpad.art.com/?ist5l94qfsw

It has 3 arms and 3 legs on the top and bottom of the round body. It eats like a starfish or octopus and apparently lives underwater. It is a pack hunter omnivore. ...Bleh, I just realizd that it will have to have fin to live underwater. Okay, replace those 3 toes with fins and it'll work.

Post by: Hydromancerx on January 08, 2006, 09:24:33 pm
There is nothing that said you need fins to be in the water. Look at crabs and star fish and sea urchins. Thye don't have fins. I only think that gills are a req for sea life. Or some feature not involving organs that tell the computer your an aquatic creature dispite you lack of fins.
Title: Re: Section For Spore Artpad and Drawings of Creature Creations
Post by: GrrrArrgh on January 08, 2006, 10:10:32 pm
Fins are mostly a locomotion style of thing, makes it easier to swim around. Aerodynamics and whatnot. It helps but isn't required.

I hope to be able to expand on it as much as Hydro has on his Naucean...with time of course. Many thanks to Hydro for helping me brainstorm and obviously drawing it! I will explain all of its biology once I have the time to post it....I am so excited and hope everyone here looks forward to all the info to come following the Quillaran race.

The tribal stage isn't much different but the metalish tentacles (a relic of previous evolution) on its back switch to being house on its face and used as its main grapplers.

actually i knew i couldn't paint, and this was just to waste some times at work. my bunnycrab should have a set of pincers on another set of appendages in front, but i decided that afterward. the height should be no higher than the knees of a full grown man.  Height is set from tip of ear pulled straight.

Here is another creature:

(http://www.imgcity.net/server/primary/scan11.jpg)

It is sentient, and currently unnamed. Edit: now called: Stomiodon.

It has no ears but a very good sense of touch, mainly through its feet. It communicates through vibrations it makes with its muscles, or stamping/tapping its feet, which are transfered through the ground. It has 2 eyes, very close together (in the same socket, essentially) and its vision is limited. It also doesn't really have a head, so its eyes are fixed foeward (though its eyes do have movement of their own). Its mouth is "jawless" and is serves basically the same function as a stomach, although it does have "teeth" which line its walls.

Edit: never mind, I looked it up and I'd rather have "mouth tooth." A little redundent, yes, but it sounds cool! --> Stomiodon (stomach turns out to be "stomachi" in Greek ::) )

Tananerv (Tail Stepper) Insectoid creature which developed it's twin tails into usable legs. Its mandibles increased in size until its present state, where the mandibles appear to have small limbs of their own. these psuedo limbs are weak, but allow for the capture of small animals. It wraps its powerful "legs" around bigger prey to constrict it. The elongated spine facets are for attracting a potential mate.

Well here are some of mine.

This first one was my attempt of mixing a wolf and a raptor, the caniptor.
http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/2780/caniptor00010zr.png

This one I came up with in an assignment for school. It doesn't have any legs so it walks by bending its wings. And I didn't draw them too well, but those are supposed to be shells on its back and head.
http://img62.imageshack.us/img62/9632/nolegs00011hz.png

This one I actually came up with playing around with some Lego-skeleton-type toys.  :D  It's just your run-of-the-mill underwater creature. 
http://img14.imageshack.us/img14/6143/swimmer00011wd.png

And this one..I still have no idea where this one came from...Its 'arms' are actually its mouths, each mouth having multiple rows of teeth.  Lacking true arms, it manipulates things with its head-tentacle. It has two pairs of eyes; a predatory pair in front, and a whatever the other kind is on its sides. the slits on its stomach are either ears are its means of making sound. Its nose is on the fin thing, and the barbs on its tail are poisounous. And the smaller picture in the corner is how it would eat.

The tail ends differently on every one, so they can tell the difference between them. They communicate with smells produced in the protruding part of the mouth. The two antenae are like snake's tongues. They are the smell sensors.

This is a Jade Flyder. It resembles Earth's spider but only has 6 legs. It also has 2 eyes on eyes stalks and a mouth on its bottom side. Between the legs are webbed skin like a flying squirrel. They glide through the jungle and pounce on prey, bitting with their belly mouths and stinging with the poisonious stinger on their abdomen. They about the size an Earth tarantula and are light enough to glide. They also climb very well and can even walk on the ceiling.

My first post and also my first drawing for years. Be nice!

The Flagipede
It is bipedal with two toes on each foot. It is about waist hight. Its mouth is lined with needle like teeth which can move to force its food down its throat. It has a ring of small eyes around its mouth. Except for its head it is covered in coarse hair with a mane behind it's head that has longer hair on. The two prehensile tentacles coming out of its head wrap around their counterparts from the back of the animal and give support for the whole body. they also help with balance when it is in motion (by moving the rear around). When it lets go the two tentacles at the front can be used to grab things, catch prey and manipulate its surroundings. The two rear tentacles trail of the ground for the most part and detect vibrations for prey and predators. The leg jewelery is a sign of status in the local community and is often changed as the fortunes of particular flagipede rise and fall.
I've had a similar idea to this for a while, although a lot of the detail was on either because my original idea was too ambitious or i just drew it and it looked good (or at least not too terrible! ;)). The original flagipede had a flatter body, three toes on each foot, had much shorter legs and was scaled with a leathery underbelly.

OK this isn't done yet, and it is also my first time ever using a 3d modeling program. After 4 hours in Maya, this is my start of the creature. I'll modify as i am develop more of it.

Forbodings of a new sentient race that I am mulling over:

(http://img114.imageshack.us/img114/9832/thijal3xy.jpg)

It is called a Thijal, and was domesticated by my race of people a long time ago. Its markings help it to blend in in the savanna where it lives. It has pustules that store water for the long dry season under its skin, and is good for both labour and eating.

EDIT: The mask of colour is for mating. During the mating season, this area balloons and turns varying shades.

Ok so I'm not really sure what to call them, I am thinking that their specific scientific name will be Hexclathorin but I can't think of any good specfic names.

Here we see the Hexclathorin male face off with a potential threat as his mate retreats into the mountains with the newborn.

(http://img132.imageshack.us/img132/1251/detailedroughdrawingofclathori.jpg) (http://imageshack.us)

The pair have been running for days without much end, sleeping some during the day and running to try and keep ahead of their predator. The male in this picture is older, as his hair folics are much thicker and as he has more folded skin, approximately eighty-seven years which is around fifty in human terms. Note how he tries to make an aggresive stance.

I think this might be the guy for the game, I'm really happy with how he turned out hehe 

(P.S. I moved this here because I didn't like polluting the forum with my frivolous topics lol)

LOL I like the way that guy looks, does he have graspers or manipulators of some kind  ???

I was going to have it so that the sentient versions of the creatures had graspers on what are the feet, because they have toes under the hard plate of bone at the front of the foot that help with stability. But I decided that I will add graspers to the setient creature separate frm the legs. there are some arms on that creature, but they are completely vestigial.

Hydro I have just read the info on the Kurare and it seems that you have based it's hunting skills and a fair bit of it on a Velociraptor and have added some of the Velociraptor features on the drawing...

Just thought I'd say. I liked Dinosaurs at a young age and got abit of info on them.

On the subject of 3D modeling, here is a work in progress from me.
(http://i92.photobucket.com/albums/l13/El_buro/Thingo3D.jpg?t=1166167537)
I don't know how to UV map in Blender, but I'll figure it out.

Also some photos of a drawing I did a while ago:
