    ADDITIONAL INFO

    1. For those people that are too lazy to grab a dictionairy, cephalopod mostly means it has tentacles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cephalopod

    2. No individual/character!!! Make a concept of a species!

    Sounds like great fun... the first thing I came to think of is Bumskee's Flying Fish-thing... one of the older cows, an extremely cool piece.

    Imagine it being like the "Sperm whale of the sky" whos only natural enemy is this Aerial Cephalopod

    Here's a very loose sketch of my idea. A highly-evolved squid, its fins have evolved into wings. Its tentacles trail behind it. The two largest tentacles have evolved into rudder-like structures, while the other tentacles bear claws with which to snag other fliers out of the air.

    Cool idea... Here's a quick idea... Wanted it to produce gases, over take cities. Thought of war of the worlds right off the bat, so hopefully i don't get too close to that

    These are works by alex ries, I'll post them for inspiration!
    These are NOT done by me and i would be glad if i can ever arrange such things.

    maybe i'll take them off i alex ries calls back and don't want them up here,
    or if yoitisi or anybody else with sumthin to say makes clear that this is against the rules or stuff.

    First part of my idea: A nautilus that propels itself by expelling air from between its eight arms, which have fused into a funnel. Its tentacles are wings. Just a WIP.

    Good stuff already folks.
    I have done some thumbnails though I'm not sure I have the exact design down yet. Planning on having my creature growing in a low gravity environment making it easier to "balloon" itself around and use wings to maneuver. The design and idea may well change as I proceed.

    i'm going for a more ethereal balloony look. i'm envisioning this creature as an air equivalent of a wait-and-ambush predator in the deep sea: they have large spans of time with no prey passing by so they have a very slow metabolism, and live a very long time. The larger creature there on the left is the cephalopod, i figure the one on the right is a giant skygoing cnidarian of some sort. The cephalopod (which i'm calling The Cloud Eater) is similar in shape because the cnidarians are its prey. perhaps it could emit the same pheromones or have other ways to mimic them.

    but enough natural history, i'll save that for the final piece.

    T_Turril: Man, your sketches are great!

    Some see the glass half full. Others see it half empty. I just try to see the glass!

    Some neat ideas already...

    zimfin: love those sketches...

    If I find the the time, I will do a hovering creature that works like a hot air ballon using the uprising air over magma fields or volcanos...

    Always looking for other artists in Switzerland for collabs and exchange... Everybody welcomed!

    Well, I keep jumping from detailing one area to the next, so nothing is as I want it yet. I plan on creating a lot more depth with the clouds, possibly adding another cephalopod in the distance. I haven't decided how transparent I want the Balloon to be yet. I think I might add some smaller balloons r something to its back tentacles though I am not sure yet.
