Oh, wow. Wowee wow. :o

Thank you! And it was most popular creation ever, for a while, beating even Charles Darwin himself. Now the rating decay has gotten to it however.

Here is something else, a strange alien thing:

Thank you, I will try.  ;D

I made a couple of creations for a civ/empire contest, but I did not finish them all. I released two though. This ship and creature:

How long do you usually spend on your creations Nethellus?

I too am interested. :)

It would take quite some time, I'd imagine.

I've seen better...

Me too. You should go see Iraultza87's spaceships (if you have not already), those are the best in Spore, as far I have seen. I'm not that great with the spaceship editor. Though that was my best attempt so far I think.

And about time spent: The spaceship above took something like 6 hours, and the creature even more actually, even though it might not look like it. It went through perhaps four different versions before becoming what it is. You can see that it is a bit more complicated in the sporepedia pic:

And the animation actually works in game as well. It is kind of crawling forward, using its back body. Looks good, I think.

I do most often spend more than one day of spare time on my creations, the most complicated ones like the Felician (the female lion thing) I am sure I have spent more than 10 hours on (and more if you count the time it took to make the base body), that one I actually reclothed once, and it is a VERY complicated mask to get precisely right.

Also the color/texture is like half the creation, I think. I sometimes spend more time on that then the actual form of the creation. If you look at the Faceless as an example, the only reason they work is because of the texture and color, which I spent a lot of time on perfecting and trying out all useful combinations I could think of.

So it takes time. I want my things to be perfect, and yet they never are. After I hit upload I still tend to feel like something could be improved, there are a lot of creations I would like to delete and make better versions of, and some I already have improved once or twice. But I don't have that kind of time, really.

 ;D

Damn, you've got a lot more patience than I do. I tend to work mine in sporadic bursts of inspiration in between an hour or so of staring at whatever I have so far. Because of that a lot of creatures just fade and don't get finished. The fact that our horrible graphics card refuses to do any sort of decent texture doesn't help either.
