Yay for the Agkistrodon
« on: March 09, 2006, 05:29:16 pm »
Woo. So, here it is. I may make small changes but for the most part this would be it:



It is the Agkistrodon (Agki for short). It looks an awful lot like a snake but I promise it structure is rather different. Their lower half of their body slithers across the ground and curves upward where they hold themselves upright with large muscles. Their two forelimbs are half way up the upperhalf of their body and extend outward around four feet each. Their forelimbs have one joint halfway through them but it can bend either way. The Agki's head has three eyes. Two on either side of the head and one in the top of their forehead. Their nose is composed of two small slits that sit at the bottom tip of the lower jaw. They have no teeth as they do not rip or tear their food. The ears are located in the lower jaw as well, but back toward the joint hinge near the base of the skull. They are surrounded by a funnel like piece of scaly skin that acts as an amplifier. The social structure is something I wanted to change around a bit from the norm. There are three sexes male, female, and mafemale. Mafemale basically raises the offspring while the others work on other projects. They are incredibly pacifistic. They rarely kill each other, if at all. When they kill prey the usually use a bow to wound it and then inject enzyme from their tails that digest the muscle tissue and other parts of the body. The predigested mush is scooped into the mouth and absorbed in the skin surrounding the mouth. They have no stomach and basically suck on the predigested pulp. Once it is thouroughly drained it is then spit out. The waste they produce is secreted from under the scales, which is why they bathe rather often.

Oh and they are staunch atheists.

Spikes would make it look a little too much like a dragon.  Great looking creature though.  Keep it the same, I say.

I had wanted to put photosynthetic plates on the back but I thought it wouldn't be possible in the game. A few people told me to just pretend but, meh, I don't have a very good imagination.

And as you can tell my artistic ability is absolutely abominable.

imagining for me takes the idea away from the game itself.  but you are a better artist than me.  i would be too lazy to do all of those scales

Want to know what sucks? I did them all in pencil first, but when I went over it in blue it smudged it all. I had to go over all of them again in ink.

Yeah, can you tell I had nothing to do that day?

And I agree about imagining taking the game away. Things need to be functional. I really want this game to turn out like real evolution. Extra useless baggage means dead creature.

yay someone that agrees completely about the uselessness of imagining in a game this big.  there are enough things to do.

Oh well thanks.

I really wanted to do them better but I just can't draw well enough to show how they really are. I hope they are portrayed accurately enough. Theres a description so if you can imagine it from that.
