Aligon's Genetic Zoo
« on: June 13, 2008, 08:24:49 pm »
My Spore Creatures!
Here's my Sporepedia page:
http://www.spore.com/view/profile/Aligon

(Below is the first creature I made at Yuri's Night. I'll eventually make it again on my version of the game.)
This is the Occle-Horn, a stealthy hunter that uses its long three-eye'd-stalk to peer over the tall and dense grasses of its homeworld and make its way towards its prey. Once it is close enough, it pounces and uses sharp talons, a powerful jaw, and multiple antlers and horns located on its eye-less and nose-less forehead (It doesn't need to worry about damaging its delicate sensory equipment, because it's all located on the eye-stalk!) to spear and tear its prey apart.



and here's the Occle-Horn with a couple of its offspring:

Well, here are some creatures I made last night. Check out the descriptions on sporepedia! (I'll maybe add them directly to this page later on)

The Graspot:


The Pockered Grapholder:


and one of my personal favorites:

The Quing:


I have some others up on my sporepedia page at http://www.spore.com/view/profile/Aligon

Any comments, feedback?
(also, am I hosting these images correctly? Some people seem to be sticking the files directly on this page, should I be doing that?)

Three more creatures!

The Shamcrock:


Cagehead (this one animates really well):


The Manterpillar (I started this one out trying to make a circle out of the spine, and as I added parts to it and realized how ridiculous it looked, it slowly evolved into this thing. I really like the leg arrangement):


Any criticisms or comments are appreciated!  ;)

I like their colours, they really underline Spore's cartoony feel.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Thanks, I'm trying to get them as varied as I can.
Does anyone know how to get feet facing anywhere but forwards? I'm trying to make my main creature, the Agnoculus, but I can't figure out how to rotate the feet...

Hehe, I wanted to make a six-legged crocodile, and then found that the normal four legs worked better. I painted it all green and stuck a bad pun in (Shamrock --> ShamCROCK) and voila!
I'm going to start working on my Role-play creatures now.

If you want them facing backwards, put the head on the back end, and basically make it completely facing opposite from the start. The feet and hands will by default still be facing the right direction.

Thanks!  ;D
Problem is, I'm trying to get all the feet facing in opposite directions! It's probably impossible...  :(
I finished the Morvlox, a creature I invented a while back, but I can't seem to upload to Sporepedia... I'll update later.

If you figure it out, let me know, I want to make two facing forward and two facing back >.>

Yeah, that's something I was trying to do. I think it's impossible, though  :-\

Here's the Morvlox:

Thanks!
My latest two creations (I didn't upload either to sporepedia), seem to have disappeared from my account since yesterday, but that's fine, they weren't very good anyway...

EDIT: never mind, I just found them in my Documents folder...

The Florasaurus (kind of makes me think of a Pokemon, but that's fine:



My first attempt at a passably humanoid creature:
The Homo Habilis:

My favorite creature so far:



The spyrarm has these coiled-up limbs, so when you use the punch animations and stuff like that, they stretch out completely. It's pretty awesome  ;D
