Inbetween

Hey everyone!

I'm kind of between projects at this point.  The sketchbook I've been using for the Zoo is all filled up, so I think I'll leave that series where it is for now.  I haven't quite decided what is coming next, but I'm still around, so keep checking back!

Hothin


Hothin from the planet Jeol partially bury their eggs in the ground to keep them safe.  Predators have to spend time digging the eggs out to steal them - the shells are too hard to penetrate before the parents notice what is happening.  Fast runners, hothin can easily chase down the small mammals the make up their diets.

Skarl

Skarl are ferocious beasts.  They live solitary lives, only meeting in groups to mate once a lifetime.  Their long saber teeth and sharp horns can gorge just about any prey they desire.  The howl of the skarl can be heard at night, and is one of the most frightening sounds of the Homar landscape.

Blrg

The blrg of Clastos was named after the sound it's discoverer made upon finding it - BLRG!!.  These small creatures slowly crawl through the mud on their six tentacles.  They must stay moist to survive, but rarely submerge themselves in water.

Lumapede

Lumapedes tend to only come out at night, using their bio-luminescent head lamp to light their way.  Their front legs have adapted into grabbing forelimbs, enabling them to gather the small plants and moss that makes up their diets.  Their spikes are merely visual deterrents, as they break easily and offer no real protection.

Furdane

The furdane is loosely related to the sundane.  It lives in the grasslands and forests of Proto.  They live in large groups gathering food most of the day.  The growth on their head is used to project their calls to distant groups of furdane.  They have quills running down their sides that they can raise to discourage predator's attacks.

Coraphi

Coraphi are the playful swimmers of Yla.  They are agile and fast, able to outrun any predators that are hunting them.  They also like to toy with their attackers - often frustrating them to the point that they give up.  Coraphi themselves feed off of the coral at the bottom of the ocean.

Jroba

The jroba of Sys towers above most other creatures on the planet.  It's a peaceful creature that stays in rather large groups.  The stripes on its neck help it hide among the long grass of the Sys plains.  They have incredibly strong hind legs, which are able to kill any attacker with a single blow.
