The only  glitch I've found is that a creature clips through itself when it moves. It's not that bad though, and not very noticeable. THat, and more of a complaint, the texturing/painting takes a long time!

I was at work. :-p I can't comment when I'm not around to browse. Anyway, some of these suffer from what I like to call, "Sporexia". That is to say parts of these creatures are too thin.

The Insectodemon is one of your better creatures. It fits my aesthetic tastes, to some extent at least.

What I'm not liking is that all your creatures seem to possess hands. However that's just my preference.

Really? The Insectodemon is my least favorite....

The Skinnebug is my favorite creature so far....

I'm still getting used to how exactly limbs and stuff should look, and I'm afraid non-thin creatures will looks wrong.

Different folks, different strokes.

My personal preference is for a creature to at least look believable. Stick thin bodies usually go against that. It really just depends on how you place the spine. The spine in most of my creatures actually winds up being closer to the ground (ie "upside down"). I do this because I find it lets me control the general size of the creature better. To get it like this I just twist and turn the spine until the "body" is facing up and then I resize from there.

[joke]Then again, I'm a big guy and I could just like my creatures like I like my women. Plump and on all fours. [/joke]

My mind! IT BURNS!


Joking....I made a fat, but not quite believable creature called the hornhopper.. It more of like quickly steps, not hops, but meh...download and play with it in test drive to see what I mean..

This stemmed from the bug I was going to make...Not sure how...though.

Load that up (don't worry I changed the name so it shouldn't replace the one you have). See how it moves slightly better, and how even though it's "thinner", it still looks fat?

Ah, I see.... It definitely looks and animates better than the ball shape of the original...

I prefer not to edit my creatures after I've saved them, but I'll keep this in mind for my next creature....
