    C.O.W. - 132: Aerial Cephalopod - VOTING!

    Artist: Bralt Hannicart

    Concept: Cumulus Gutsack
    Feasting on cloud dew and solar light, the Cumulus Gutsack does nothing else than drifting among the clouds. They travel during the day, following the sun so the air inside it's steering- and gutsacks stays hot. Generic description for a quite generic design!

    Artist: Kin

    Concept: Cloudsurge Cephalopod
    The Cloudsurge Cephalopod lives on planets that have denser atmosphere. They stay afloat with gas filled sacs protected by a lightweight, but sturdy shell that also protects their innards. They generally move about by sucking up air with their mouths and blowing it back out of a giant vent on the back of their head. While moving the Cloudsurge feed on small birds or anything that is sucked up and expels any indigestible food and waste through their vent hence the dirtiness of the clouds.

    Concept: Teuthida Petaurus
    Composed of lightweight membrane, the Teuthida Petaurus is a species of squid gliders. Their six locomotive arms provide enough thrust for staying airborne.

    Artist: TimM

    Concept: NorthWestern Blimp Squid
    The NorthWestern Blimp Squid is an endangered species that lives in Northern Temperate regions. These colossal creatures travel in widespread pods above and in the cloud layer, feeding on birds and other floating creatures. The large dark spot on their backs attracts sunlight and stimulates the creation of crucial enzymes that allow them to float. Their means of flight is a lighter-than-air gas they create in their upper mantle, coupled with incredibly light body structure. Young can be seen flying around them, occasionally resting on their parent's backs. As they age, their skin pigment changes to a darker, gray color, and their skin cracks. Numerous have been injured and killed by aircraft strikes. Some can be seen with deep cuts on their outsides from wing strikes.

    C.O.W. - 132: Aerial Cephalopod - VOTING!

    Artist: Nikola Marinkovic

    Concept: Acid Kephalópoda
    This creatures are widely regarded as the most intelligent creatures of the sky. They fly really high producing poisonous gases. Chambers full of helium integrated in their bodies makes them float so high. They feed with birds flying near them but they eat everything else that comes in their way.

    Artist: Arthur-GL

    Concept: Aerial Cephalopod
    (can also be read in the image)This creature can be found on many pathways of the migratory birds. In close range they are able to mess with the bird flock’s navigational system, giving this squid looking creature an easy time sucking them into it’s trunk. During rest they can often be seen laying on top of mountains like a sheet of snow.

    Despite the huge size, the creature is extremely lightweight because of it’s hollow structure. The filter system under it’s body rapidly warms up the air so it can rise up into the huge balloon looking organ on the back

    REJECTED - NOT IN THE POLL
    Reason: Almost made it, but overall the shape is not clear (especially the yellow/brown part is hard to read), and it lacks texture and detail.

    Artist: AlisonRobin

    Concept: Bellow Nautilus
    The Bellow Nautilus propels itself along by exhaling through its 'funnel,' which is comprised of eight webbed arms. Because of this method of locomotion, it appears to rocket backwards.
    Over millions of years its two tentacles have widened enough to serve a wings with which to glide.

    C.O.W. - 132: Aerial Cephalopod - VOTING!

    Artist: MoHog

    Concept: Loftus Shelk
    The pinnacle of cephalopod evolution, the Loftus Shelk has developed an organ to produce helium within its largely hollow shell. As ancient cephalopods used their air pockets for buoyancy the Shelk floats through the ether sifting morsels from the thick pollution clouds left by mankind.

    C.O.W. - 132: Aerial Cephalopod - VOTING!

    Artist: zimfin

    Concept: Aerial Cephalopod
    The Aerial Cephalopods live on a low gravity planet with a lot of Volcanic activity. The planet has very little land mass so the Cephalopods spend most of their time floating through the gaseous environment above the oceans. They use the volcanic gases and low gravity to their advantage when it comes to flight and maneuverability and will even hide amongst the gas clouds from Predators. In some emergency evasions, ( and sometimes for hunting ) they will contract the "balloon" membrane into a thin tentacle and plunge into the Ocean. Normally though, they will float close to the surface and quickly pluck unsuspecting prey from the waters. Due to very little energy expenditure they need little food and can goes days without eating. They are resistant to the extreme heat of the volcanic waters as are most of their aquatic prey and spend the early months of their lives in the water before developing their floatation membrane. They can grow to around 15 Meters in length from tip to tip and are thought to live for up to 30 years.

    C.O.W. - 132: Aerial Cephalopod - VOTING!

    Artist: Kredepops

    Concept: Bulaaari

    The aerial cephalopods; the Bulaaari live at high altitudes on the planet Kaptana, which has an extremely low gravity pull. The low gravity combined with frequent and violent wind bursts, makes its light body float high above the clouds.

    The rear tentacles are used to capture small pray, such as birds or other smaller cephalopods, for eating. It nurses its young until adulthood. Front tentacles are solely for social behavior, such as communication and caring for the young.
    Bulaaari live in small heards of 5-6 animals.
