Still not too happy I had to build it XD
Also, I edited it after I uploaded it - the legs are better, but they don't show on the picture...


Anyway;
It's a tall creature, it's upper half is covered in fur to keep it warm, but it's lower legs are very heavily coated in scales, allowing it to stand in ice-cold water waiting for small prey to swim by.

The Abominable Snowdrift is an ambush predator that disguises itself as a pile of snow, then pounces on passing prey.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Ok, here is my entry... I may enter another in this category if I get time.  This creature is just an adaptation of a creature already in my collection.

Ice Yavistong


Sporepedia Description:  See "Yavistong".  The Ice Yavistong is an adaptation of the Yavistong.  It has found the colder climate to its liking and is a very successful hunter.

Concept:  This is a closely related creature to the original Yavistong that has evolved to take advantage of a colder climate.  It has changed very little as it was already fairly well suited to the colder conditions.  The biggest change is it's slightly more squat in appearance in an effort to conserve heat.  It uses those huge claws to dig through compacted snow and ice to get to burrowing creatures.  They have even been known to use them like skewers to fish.  The other main use of the claws are to dig out their nest holes which provide considerable protection from the elements.  It also has its eyes on stalks unlike its cousin in order to retract them during the severe snow storms it endures.

I made this. the Cunex. A predictor that is rather slow but good at stalking. It uses is wings to jump high in to the sky and surprise is pray from above. In close combat it is deadly using both claws, teeth and is horns to attack. Its wings contains a anti freezing agent to protect  them. Its stocky build helps it keep is core temperature.

I was not sure how to color this creature is i when with a light blue color and added the effect that his limbs where covered in icy snow.

I'm up for the challenge :)

Also, those that have a custom background, how did you guys do that? just wondering.

As for the old drawing stuff, i've just gotta say that while not everybody is great at drawing, the creature creator allows people of all skill levels to compete.

I voted for beast of burden as pretty much everything else has been done I think, many of them anyways. I also have a creature that I made which I said in the description which could be tamed as a beast of burden, so I could use that one in the next competition if that is the topic.

Obviously UFO, you haven't snuck into Micheal Bay's house and stolen his version of Citizen Kane. Giant radioactive exploding ninjas are the least silliest parts.

One quick question here, what if I use a creature that has a winter phase and a summer phase? There are arctic animals that do this, so I don't see why some extraterrestrial creature wouldn't evolve a similar adaptation.

Of course though, this wouldn't work in spore as it would treat them as two separate species. So, if the one I made does have this, can I submit both phases or just the winter phase? It would count as submitting one species because they are the same species.

I did make a summer phase for my creature after I did the ice one, but it was more of an afterthought.

It's best that you stick to the theme for good consistency. You can make a summer version but we won't include it for voting.

The idea is that it would be a creature that lives on a planet that is cold year round.

I see, the summer phase thing was just a side idea I had, so I can just go and remove the summer phase version, the origional is still there.

Although my Eldercrow lives in a polar region, it would work on an ice planet so I might as well post it.


It's eyes in that shot are hidden by the fur, but from the front you can see them.
Here's the downloadable if anyone wants it.
