Naktul
« on: July 03, 2006, 03:08:05 am »
Well here's an image of my creature, the Naktul. (It isn't the best picture but explains the physics and stuff a bit also i am not a native english speaker.. so beware the grammar!!)



The Naktul have evolved like this because their planet is almost wholely covered by a large rainforest. I the beginning they were quite small climbing batlike beings that hunted insects and small animals. Then they started growing larger and larger and larger and eventually they could not find enough food while climbing. Eventually their lower fingers became longer, were bent backwards and some skin appeared between the arm and these erm... things. After that mutation Naktul has expanded their hunting radius by just climing on top of trees then jumping and flying thus covering longer distances and finding prey with their excellent hearing and nightvision. (Hearing is more useful because they still cannot see through trees) When they already find the target it is quite easy to slay it, for Naktul are armed with four muscular arms and also can use these mutated things :) as somekind of daggers (Pointy ends!). Also it is quite a suprise when you are suddenly ambushed from above (they use the rear wings to slow the fall while making long jumps, all the wings are required when flying). They have no protective carpace or similar things because it would just be too heavy. Fortunately they are agile enough to avoid blows and usually prey does not have time to act anyway.

The Naktul lay eggs (usually 2 at a time) and mate only once in ten years year. They take care of their young until the latter are able to hunt on their own. They reach sexaul maturity at the age of 9 so a female grows up a new generation of Nakul and then mates again. A Naktul can live for about 120 years. Naktul live in groups but hunt separately. They communicate with piercing cries that sometimes go beyond human hearing.

Thats about it for now... If i am not too lazy i will someday continue with the hisory of the almighty Naktul civilization.

Ok want criticism  ;D just thinking but those wings look awfully close to each other and unless he stretched his arms to around his head it would be awkward to fly, due to the funny movements air takes when wings flap but that could just be a problem with the scale it was drawn in.... well you asked for criticism  :P

Apart from that i think its good

Well yes i'm not too good at drawing... just gives some general idea about how it looks. Also the lower wings might be used more for maneuvering not actively flapping all the time.... or maybe ill just sometimes redraw it  :-[.

Pretty nice. Man, so many of these are springing up. I really need to get caught up with my Talcea.
Wait, you're telling me Radiosity isn't the graphical simulation of a nuclear bomb?

I like it. Looks like a little goblin-demon-y beastie-thing.
Im guessing Gothic architecture?

Maybe... i think it will be something spiky and high, but definately not just pure gothic architecture. Too unoriginal and i cant draw it  ;)

After they grew larger they eat bugs only when there is a true crisis (Read: everything else is eaten), so no they are not going to eat these. But they are not entirely evil too... they're just a bit savage right now  ;D.
