    Artist: chrislomaka

    Concept: Audiophyte
    They always seem to appear over battlefields, leading scientists to believe that these creatures feed on the sounds of battle and dying men. That, and the total lack of a mouth...

    Artist: GNAHZ

    Concept: Geckidio
    Found normally in urban area where there are lots of noise. Tail is used to detect and find the source of the sound. The red lumpy blob is used to absorb the sound waves and vibrations, which it feeds on. Oh yeah its can climb the wall like a gecko... O_O...

    Artist: ZUPZUP

    Concept: Phonotoidea Aquaticus
    Phonotoidea Aquaticus is a small worm like creature that is found near ocean beaches, waterfalls, and rushing water, which are some of the loudest naturally occuring places in nature. It uses the drum like forehead to gather and convert the sound to a usable energy. This creature over the centuries has lost the need for a usable mouth or eyes. The drum helps orient the creature in space through a form of echolocation, as high frequency sounds are emitted through membranes deep within the drum, similar to that of the North American Bat. The fine hairs and cavities on the surface of the creature help to capture and filter moisture from the surrounding land or sea. Phonotoidea Aquaticus is mainly a nocturnal creature. The breed quickly and in large numbers, but lack much in the way of self defense.

    I haven't very much time to draw like the other ( great work guys)...
    But I hope you'll love this Idea a little bit^^


    Now to my creature:

    This creature hears all types of soundwaves and swallow them like an vakuum cleaner( remember: Soundwaves are moved air).
    It lives mostly in the near of big noisy wellsprings, like big city.
    Hmmmm....
    That's all^^



    Sry for my bad english, i still learn it

    This rare creature, closely related to millipedes and centipedes, feeds off of sound. getting it from anywhere possible whether it being from crowds of people or from a pair of headphones.

    Artist: Spazizoner

    Concept: Phantom Fish
    These aquatic creatures were coined "Phantom Fish" by the navy, due to their ability to interrupt the sonar equipment of submarines. Phantom Fish are attracted to the ultrasonic sounds throughout the sea, and it is hypothesized that this may be their primary energy source. They are known to flock around anything that makes noise in the ultrasonic spectrum, such as whales, and often attach themselves using their sticky dorsal fins. They thrust their hand-like tail claws into their pray, not to cause damage, but to precipitate an increase in noise from which they may feed upon, using the mysterious organ on their tails.

    Artist: Michael Jaecks

    Concept: Thunder Sucker
    Thunder Suckers live in the violent atmosphere of their home planet, Mjalnuur. Thunder Suckers don't have a head so much as a large, flexible, cartilaginous organ that works like an ear. Thunder Suckers feed on the sonic boom of the lightning in Mjalnuur's stormy clouds. Long filaments on a Thunder Sucker's back 'see' the static discharge that preceeds the lightning strikes so the creature can position itself for optimum feeding without getting zapped.

    Artist: Yannertastic

    Concept: Barbuxal
    These small critters typically grow to the size of a baseball. Currently all the rage for a child's pet. They are highly intelligent creatures, perfectly harmless and require no sustenance except that of the sound of laughter. Hours of fun and the best companion to be had.

    Artist: benu

    Concept: Phonophagus


    In the last years, a formerly unknown species from the deepsea has become a real plague in coastal regions. The phonophagus, a tentacled mollusc with a huge, gaping mouth that is shaped like a funnel to catch up as much noise as possible,lives on a very unusual diet: it metabolizes the energy of sound waves. In the past the oceans were mostly quiet, and the phonophagi could barely support themselves off the songs of whales and the noise of the waves. Therefore they were very rare and did not grow larger than a child's ear.
    With the spread of motor ships and sonars, the sea became a much louder place, and so the phonophagi grew and proliferated. Their bodies don't only grow to huge dimensions now, but also tougher and more resistant to the low pressure near the surface, which enables them to come very close to their most abundant food source - the human civilisation. Now they are the largest animal that ever lived on earth, clogging port entrances and occasionally engulfing screaming children at the beach.

    Artist: Arekkusu

    Concept: Sonitus Modulatio

    Found often 'grazing' nearing space ports that receive large amounts of traffic, the Sonitus Modulatio is a titan of a species. Scientists believe that they feed on sound waves, in particular, low thrumming bass tones. The suspended carapace captures the passing waves and channels them along into the beasts belly. The waves are modulated to increasing complexity, via a intricate series of hollow bones and membranes. The waves once they reach their destination, are used to stabilise what is believed to be a singularity. Our current theories suggest that the slight radiation given off by this singularity fuel colonies of bacteria, that are responsible for producing the vital nutrients required by the Sonitus Modulatio. Unfortunately no hard evidence is available, apart from numerous reports from ship pilots. Correlating detection of low level radiation and gravity field distortions on landing routes that fly over or in the vicinity of grazing herds.

    Artist:
    Freekwhensee

    Concept:
    This strange member of the order Lepidoptera, is truly a wonder indeed. its ability to ingest sound as source of nutrients is not the only baffling trait. the incest is truly unique as it develops a beneficial symbiotic relationship with a larger host. the creature makes its home behind the out ear of a host. tendrils then burrow painless into the flesh of the host forming a bond with the skin. a small tendril form the thorax then curls into the ear form under the lobe and migrates deep inside to the inner ear where it grafts to the organ. a small mandible on the head affixes to the side of the head near the ear and "syncs with the host. normal patterns of sleeping and activity are denoted by the hosts own patterns or lifestyle. once attached it absorbs the sound thorough the host own ear to absorb sound. its excrement , oddly enough nourishes the hosts sensory organ granting preternatural hearing.

    this strange incest is now breed on different planets as listening devices and are part of some military protocols for field equipment. its nickname the "bugtooth" garners it a few laughs and ridicule among the smugglers and riff raff. but fetch a high price on the black markets of distant fringe planets.

    Artist: Relic

    Concept: Tacere Vita
    Tacere vita feeds on(it can transform air vibration into its body's energy ) noises above 60 decibel.Noises above 60 decibel can not be heard by hunman's ear when that guy located 5 feet in circumference to that creature.
    For that reason people use tacere vita as hearing protecting equipment.Tacere vita's limbs can be stretch freely,a little bit like octopus',so you can put that creature on your head,stretch its forelimbs and tie them below your chin ,then foist its hind legs into your ear hole.
    A perfect hearing protecting equipment, it mute noises and save the sound of people speaking,which usually under 60 decibel,adapt to people who work in building site,club etc.
