Welcome to the The Creative Commissions Thread, where every other week we'll be issuing a new challenge, and it's up to you to take it.

This Week's Challenge: Featured Part
Quote
I will choose a part at random. Take this part and make the best use of it in the most creative way imaginable. Please give your creature a name, and feel free to give a short back story or/and provide general information on your creature.
The part chosen is: Reapermantis

Entries due by: September 15th

This works just like my old The Creature Creation Challenge but this time I'm teaming up with Gec, who will be managing voting for best creatures and other tasks. Here are the rules:

Rules:
1) A single user can only enter a max number of 3 creatures for any one challenge. It's fine if you only want to enter one creature.
2) All creatures have to be made with the Creature Creator.
3) All entries must include the original png file from your Spore page, these are used for polling. You can include other screen shots or/and videos of your creatures, but we need the pgn file.
4) The same creature can not be entered in more then one challenge, even if said creature meets the requirements for multiple challenges. The CCT was made to help people create new, original creatures, entering a single creature for multiple challenges defeats that purpose.

Enjoy, have fun, and don't forget to vote for the next challenge. If there are any challenges you would like to see please let us know.

No, Create an ice environment creature. The Descriptions are to be voted on to see what is the next challenge.

I also have a question. Can we submit characters we already created or do they have to be made specifically for the challenge?
