    thanx to Michael Jaecks for the topic



    ADDITIONAL INFO

    - Make a concept of a creature which uses a different visual spectrum than humans or most animals have. Examples are X-Ray, Infrared etc But go for the creative one, something new

    - We need to see the creature in a normal view and an area which is presented in the way the creature sees



    Beneath is an example how the image should like be...

    on the left the creature in normal view and on the right you can see how the creature sees...the scale on the edge is only an interesting indea how to push/describe the concept better...

    SV: LOL. I think I'll make a creature that sees with gaydar.

    "Not that there's anything wrong with that."

    Fozz: that's not what a snake looks like under infrared.

    Wait a minute... I suggested this topic? Really? When? I have no memory of that.

    Creatures which only see things with a temperature exeeding 110 degrees Farenheit would have enjoyed the Arches National Park in Utah as much as I did... but otherwise...
    Indeed an interesting philosophical subject... visibles and not visibles.. and how they are appreciated by the viewer. I think humans have a million different visuals spectrum between them (besides the mere physical variations). I think I'll make a creature who's sight is based on level of happiness... Now you see me, now you don't. Oh, look! An angel!

    Wow I guess I did.

    You shoulda picked the 'best eaten alive' one.

    Speaking of which, welcome back Cloister, its nice to see/hear/read you again. I hope those mosquitoes I sent didn't pester you too much.

    Fozz, it takes me three hours each morning to look that good. Imagine if I spent six.

    Cool topic, I haven't participated in a while so I may consider this. I have a hard time coming up with something though. Perhaps something that is hypersensitive to movement... hmm I have to think things through here.

    Excellent Topic~! Then, I take it, there are no real limitations to the creature itself? Does it have to have eyes? Perhaps the creature uses scent to create an image in it's mind? Would summit like that be ok?

    I really hope I can finish this one, the past three cows I haven't made it past the lineart stage.~

    I can't speak for Fozz on the subject of what's acceptable, but the way I think of it is picking a different/unusual area of the EM spectrum (or perhaps one of the other physical forces in the universe) and creating a creature around that. What if a creatures primary sense was detecting x-rays. Or gravity. The organ itself might not look like an eye, but it would be located in a place the creature could best put it to use.

    That's what makes the most sense to me. Of course, those of us who claim to have a third eye (you know who you are) will no doubt concept this differently.

    If we're nitpicking anyway, thats not an image of the snake in infrared, but the vision/viewpoint of the snake in infrared.

    What's actually is more disturbing is the fact that the guy is waving at the snake like it's an old friend. From that distance it would be nearly impossible to recognize the snake wouldnt it?

    I think the gaydar could fit the creature by peppi of last week.
