do they have a separate tongue?  where are the taste buds located?

The tounge is in the beak that is within the psudo-mandible. And their nostirls work like a whales in which that can close up for underwater swimming.

Here is a Naucean sub from the Modern Age. Unlike their military subs this was made for scientific exploration. Naucean even though amphibious have their limits. They can only hold their breathe so long and go deep before the pressure is to great upon their bones. This is why the deep submarine was made. To go to where no Naucean has gone before. After its first missions they have discovered many many new creature never seen before. Most notable are the multipeds above 4 legs, which are not know in the higher depths and on land. From these creatures new discoveries in medicine and new insights into the evolution of the Nauceans.

Here are some Naucean drugs.

Red Fang Berry
This has been seen before with the great plantions in the new world worked by mostly Jungle Tribe slaves. The quills are very poisonous but it turns out when smoked it has the addictive qualities of tobacco and coffee combine but with the scent of mocha chocolate. It takes alot of skill to get this addictive juice from the plant without being hurt by the poison in the quill. It is smoked using a berry smoking pipe in which is inserted into the nostrils on the top of the head. The nostrils can open and close like a whales which simulates humans lips opening and closing on a tobacco pipe.

Red Olivenuts
These have been used for a very long time by the Hydromanctic Priests. When cooked they turn pink and give off an incense. When eatten they have healing properties and work as a pain reliever like aspirin as well as cleaning out the digestive track like prunes. This effect is known as "the great cleansing".

Turmabegga
This common tuber has been used in sports such as turnabegga ball as well as brewed into turnabegga ale. It has a similar taste as tequila and will make Nauceans drunk. Ironically it also is great as a sports drink when fermented properly (as seen by the Flowit walker drawing). This is the preferred drink at rave/discos during the Modern Age.

Quill Sponge
This is an animal and not a plant but its protective spines are actually contain a sticky liquid. When dried out it makes a light blue powder. This substance is usually rubbed on the oral tentacles. When this is done they are inflamed and get the sense of hot and col as well as great pleasure. After this takes place they usually experience hallucinations as well as "stoned" quality to their behavior. Some Naucean claim it is is a good a sex, but with cravings for food.

Very cool love the designs going on here.

Although, I clearly recognise that you are using Photoshop here coloring..hmm scanned sketches. And the technique for colouring...you set the sketch layer above the colour layer and set it to multiply?
And for the shading, blacks and whites in the colour layer or on a seperate layer set on either multiply or screen?

Checking, because I think you could improve much on your colouring. I'm quite the colouring freak right here.
See your avatar there? I know exactly how that was coloured, and I could duplicate that effect easily. Not all to good at the drawing part though.

Hey, does that matter? RedFishs pictures are insanely well coloured, mine are so-so, Hydro's are very good, but it doesn't matter. The ideas and the concepts are important here. A boring concept with good colouring isn'ta as good as the oppsite. Anyway, good work on the drugs Hydro, nice connection to the Rave scene.

very cool drawings man :) I really like the deep sea minisub.

The Turnabegga ale is basically a Naucean liquor for sure.

Quill Powder looks familiar ;).

I didn't even see that fantastic submarine, it's great.

And the colouring is very good, it has his own style of doing it and I like it.
A multitude of rulers is not a good thing. Let there be one ruler, one king.

Yes i am using Photoshop. Theses are my steps

1. Draw in pencil
2. Scan Drawing
3. Contract the pencil darker
4. Re size
5. Crop any black lines at the side from scanning
6. Copy Background
7. Delete background
8. Add new layer
9. Use multiply on pencil layer
10. Color in using soft brushes
11. shade using burn tool.
12. Touch up by erasing or add ing stuff.
13. Sometimes use gradient fill for background.
14. Add text and labels
15. As as JPG
16. Upload to FTP
17. Post here and then Spore Planet and Spore Wiki.

Anywho i am open to suggestions on coloring. What technique do you have in mind?

I have an even simpler way.  ;D

1. Scan
2. Resize to 50%
3. Contrast
4. Colour
5. Add a new layer with 40% opacity and draw basic shadows
6. ???
7. Profit!
