Darcie's Spore Bits 'n Bobs - Tacoboy,Neko,Mechs etc
« on: July 10, 2008, 07:07:30 am »
I has come to my attention that while my original thread works great for my theme sets, it doesn't really give me a good place to list my more spontaneous creations without them getting lost or having me have to hide the update about the 10 new horses to announce a single other creature.  As such, I have decided to make a second thread for more fun and intermittent creatures.  It will also be a place where people can check up on sets in the making before I release the full polished theme in the other thread.  It should also make it a lot easier to find the creatures you want.  Also, if you have a request, at any time feel free to post it here and I'll see what I can do :)  I love a good challenge.
Theme Sets:  My most polished work can be viewed in fully rendered form on my Creature sets thread.

Tips and tricks:  I include artist notes with tips and tricks on how I pulled off what I made during each theme set.  You will want to go to that thread for such information.
I also have a thread that is intended for everyone to share tips and tricks. It opens with a basic overview of the most common advanced features used in the CC.  Great for beginners and really anyone.


My Sporepedia username is: Darcie
My Sporepedia Profile Page
My Sporepedia Creature List

You can find more information, creatures and game guides at my website:
http://www.geocities.com/gemwhite/spore/index.html

General Artist Information:
I'm studying game design and have made third party expantions for existing games for over 14 years.  I love lore and mythical creatures and have had a thing for dragons since I was a toddler.  I am focused on quality over quantity and like to make creations others would likely want to use. 

Group Lists
Templata Complex:
Jump To List
These creatures are best used as starting bases to form your own creatures and feature some trickier body and leg builds.  Some are meant to be picked appart to teach how to make complex structures from simple ones.  If you use one all I ask is that you say at the bottom of the description based on template by Darcie (or in the key words if it won't fit). True templata will be removed from the sporepedia and placed in a zip on my website when SPORE comes out to keep them from going out in sporecasts.  Simple creatures that double as templata will remain.

Starters: 
Jump To List
Creatures that I make with the intent of them being simple and small for the beginning of the creature phase.  These tend to have good thumbnail pictures because the camera zooms in so close.

Micro - Not Starter:

Jump To List
Sometimes I like to try and make mini versions of creatures.  If they end up with small stats they go in the starters section, if they end up with fancier stats they go here. These tend to have good thumbnail pictures because the camera zooms in so close.  To date, the gnat is the smallest creature I have made, just look at the babies!

The rest of the groupings are just to help find various critters by recognisable "type"

Food and Object Monsters: 
Jump To List
Foodiforma is actually a theme set, but sometimes I come up with new ones on the fly.  Until I have enough to release as a new set with a Fancy graphic they get listed here.  Random object creatures will be here too.  Remember, I don't post it unless it animates correctly so you can be sure they will look just as good in motion (often better).

Insects and Arthropods:
Jump To List
So insects are arthropods, but I figure insect would be more skimmed for.  Anyhow, this is stuff like bug, crabs and spiders etc.

Fishlike:
Jump To List
Based on real life or classic mythical fish or other aquatic animal on some level, is at least moderately complex and medium+ sized.

Herplike:
Jump To List
Based on real life or classic mythical snakes,lizards,crocs,turtles,salamanders and frogs on some level, is at least moderately complex and medium+ sized.

Birdlike:
Jump To List
Based on real life or classic mythical birds on some level, is at least moderately complex and medium+ sized.

Mammallike:
Jump To List
Based on real life or classic mythical mammals on some level, is at least moderately complex and medium+ sized.

Plantlike:
Jump To List
Based on real life or classic mythical plants on some level, is at least moderately complex and medium+ sized.

Fan-Fic:
Jump To List
Based on the intellectual work of others, there are purely fan art of these wonderful creations.  I only did the SPORE form, I don't have anything to do with the original creators.

Total Monster:
Jump To List
Stuff I made up and is just fun.

Robots and Cyborgs
Jump To List
For steam punk, scifi, futuristic critters.

Other:
Jump To List
Creatures that don't really fit in any of the above categories.

Templata Complex:  Pick appart to learn how to build something, or use part of it to make your own.  True templata will be removed from Sporepedia before release to prevent sporecast contamination.  You can get them at my website at that point.
