    Concept: Cervello Scollo

    This dynamic creature lives among the subterranean caverns and tunnels where it reproduces at an enormous rate, laying up to several hundred eggs in a single nest. Many of the offspring fall victim to predators and starvation before reaching adolesence. Once they reach maturity, however, the chemical composition in their bodies alters, creating enhanced pyschic activity. The energy is effortlessly leeched from surrounding aminals and vegetation and is absorbed and stored directly into their bodies thus allowing these creatures the ability to travel great distances underground. Although relatively harmless if left alone, prolonged exposure to one of these creatures can cause an adult human to become seriously weakened which could result in a comma and eventual death.

    CephallidPsychicSuccor AKA: Dream Eater :C.O.W. #144

    These dangerously psychic creatures were once believed to be gods themselves. But are actually deviant subservient animal scouts of the ancient Greek god Krohnos a god of the underworld and time, While being a cursed god , as with many other underworld Old Ones he was banished to an eternal slumber. But, even within this cursed slumber a few powerful Old Ones were able to maintain a power hold of sorts on our world. Through dreams and psychic powers they are able to summon and control certain allies and beasts to serve them as needed. The Dream eaters are some of these for Krohnos. Through their eyes and thoughts he sees the world and acts as he wishes. Whether under his control or not, they appear within and traveling throughout the astral plane and coming into ours ( Some believe they come from the Famed Dreamland). While in our prime material plane they appear and attack and hypnotize human pray. They delight in mesmerizing a victim to sleep , then feeding on their dreams and psychic energy. They can control our dreams, and turn them into nightmares. In some cases , they leave you in a vegetative state or permanently leaving the victims in a dream state (Comatose). Pray you don't meet one of these, in your waking ,or dream state.

    He likes pornography, cigarettes and television. He wishes you would reconsider graphic design. He thinks you shouldnt be so hard on yourself. He lives in the only forest in Hell. He lives alone in this forest. He once murdered over 600 artists, philosophers and muses in three days. He is deeply fond of the Wayans brothers. You wouldnt remember him, but you have met before. Perhaps you recall the first half of that dream, maybe even a glimpse of him. That was the time he smothered your masterpiece in it's crib. He has done this three times so far. He will do it again. Because the Creation experiment must end. And because he hates you. He hates you so fucking much.

    "No really! I am psychic! It's just that a Skuddlebutt suckered my powers! Come back tomorrow and I'll read your palms again, and no refunds. Seriously though, watch out for Skuddlebutts. They slurp up your inner essence and they say they make men bald too." -Gypsy Palm Reader

    Artist: Nichols

    Concept: Immersed Platoon (IP) Crab


    Lying dormant for up to a decade, the Immersed Platoon Crab is one of the most patient, calculative and sinister species of crab found by man. Waiting in suspended hibernation just below the surface, it acts upon slight surface tremors when attacking its prey. Unleashing 6 inch barbarous claws on its back and head deep into the limb of its unsuspecting prey it then proceeds to drain the body dry of blood while acting as a bio-symbiotic heart for its victim. The IP crab is also the only known species believed to psychically communicate with all surrounding IP crabs to help overwhelm its prey while they burrow the corpse underground to be slowly digested alive. Victims have been found over a week and a half later, still conscious yet immobile and unable to communicate due to the horrifically sustained torture endured.

    Discovered in the late 21st century in the sandy shores off of eastern Australia they have all but decimated the once thriving surf community, rendering the Australian beaches as treacherous wastelands where only the bravest and foolhardy of professional surfers dares to tread.

    Concept: Hades Bug
    The Hades Bug.
    Named after it's demonic and hellish appearance resides mainly underground. During the darker hours of the day it will surface and wait in trees and the undegrowth, and even in water much like a leech. But this creature doesn't just draw blood. This creature draws brain tissue and in turn can control the mind of it's host. It prefers to attack creatures of higher intelligance that it can detect with it's 'psychic' eye on it's back. It has an exteremely sharp sucker mouth that can chew through bone with the aid of digestive liquids. While it's tentacles and legs keep a firm hold of it's victims. Violent chimpanze behaviour has been attributed to the presence of this creature.

    Concept: Submineus scholaris

    Almost everyone has an experience with heavy fatigue and inattention. Of course students know this feeling very well. Few weeks ago workers repairing sewerage under one school in Europe found cavities under classrooms. After the short tracking the tunnel led them to this creature which was hidding in depth of 50metres under the ground. This depth it leaves only when it is hungry. The creature feed on sucking the alphawaves of young people's brains that is why it stay near schools and universities. In the close contact with the adult it isn't dangerous.

    Concept: Planar Drainer


    Floating between planes of existence, the Planar Drainer searches for sentient beings to feast upon.
    Never quite in view, the Planar Drainer could be the shadows or movement that you see out of the corner of your eye. When you turn to look there is nothing there.
    It's tentacles and feelers are brushing your mind, feeding on useless thoughts and memories, but also draining the mind of the capability to remember and think.
    Slowly but surely over the years the victim becomes subject to mental illness.

    Concept: Thrott
    Thrott is an ancient creature, rarely seen bu human beeings. It constantly awaits high in the tree tops, when it smells CO2 which comes with every animals breath, he falls down on it's victim tightening it's limbs around the neck. After that it injects the neuro-toxin which paralizes the vicitm and makes it easy for Thrott's to devour the brain by sucking it out.

    Concept: Psychoslug
    Patiently it lies in wait underneath the earth of campgrounds and wooded areas, waiting for unknowing campers or animals to rest their heads to sleep. Although it does no physical harm to its prey, they may find themselves missing a few thoughts the next morning. Lets hope its not anything important.

    Artist: Chronoperates

    Concept: Hereset


    The hereset is a nocturnal creature who burrows underground using its long hook like claws during daylight hours to protect its pale skin from sun damage. Its feathery regions serve as a cover that can flatten out to protect its skin from the sun should it come to dire circumstances, and also serves to pad certain areas while it burrows and rests underground.

    It has evolved past the need for eyes and in their stead it hunts via a heightened perception of electromagnetism, enabling it to pick up on the brain waves of nearby prey. It uses a hood of tentacles to suck on to the head of its victim while also using its hooks underneath their collarbones to keep a strong hold as it gnaws its way into their skull and devours their brain.

    Concept: Gripper-suckerer


    A creature that lives under the above: digging, tunnelling, and rising unexpectedly to feed on the thoughts of the unsuspecting. It uses it's legs to excavate, but also grip's any victim with these strong appendages, once in place, sucking on their tasty musings. Dangerous! Keep away!

    Concept: Mind Centipede

    The journal of Augustus Gryffon contained all manner of creatures discovered by the explorer. It was no coincidence that his eccentric behavior began around the same time he came across what he called the mind centipedes. Recent medical science has concluded that the growing larva in his brain tissue was responsible for his psychosis.

    Swellzombie's Cthonic Psychic Creature

    Artist: swellzombie
    Concept: Cthunth Worm

    One of many creatures that are birthed from a greater Cthuthian creature that produces various offspring fit for gathering psychic energy.
    This leech-like creature works as a receiver and carrier of psychic energy. The worm finds a host rich in psychic energy. I first latches itself to the host, using it’s upper and lower tentacle-like areas. Protruding from the opening at its head are psychic sensitive mandibles that extract bio-electrical energy. It receives energy through the bulb located at the center of its frontal orifice. That energy is then held in glands on either side of its upper body. Once enough energy is received, it leaves the host alive or dead then returns to its “mother” and unloads its found energy. After unloading its energy to the “mother” the rest of its organic matter is then reabsorbed and recycled into another Cthunt worm.

    Concept: N'naggan N'goeh
    The N'naggan N'goeh are bizarre, old, telepath planet parasites.
    When they detect a planet with a developed biosphere they crash in it, and burrow themselves with powerfull claws, until finding a natural cave. Then, they attach themselves on the ceiling, and grow roots through it.The roots reach the surface and start draining all the nutrients from above, then, the main body of the creatures processes the organic material and evacuates in the cavern. With time evolution shapes a new fauna and flora underground, that the N'naggan N'goeh uses at their will, through telepathy, fooling the undergroung creatures in believing they are gods.

    Red face

    Artist: Alien Ape Star
    Concept: Chchotl



    The Chchotl is a molecular creature. In this image you can observe a female that just captured an atom and now is disturbing the natural flow of electrons. The female blasts a pulse of dark energy that makes one or more electrons to jump back in time. When that happens a psytron is taking shape in the void that is left in the space where the electron used to be. A psytron is not dark energy or antimatter. It is a particle that is naturally formed around a sentient being (like humans or dolphins) and begins to group into clusters. When the Chchotl hunts the females produce the psytrons and the males arrange them as fast as possible into long clusters. When a cluster is long enough it is starting to attract cosmic energy and genetic information through the sentient being that is more close to it. In other words intuition or inspiration that we say it "comes" to us is actually cosmic energy and genetic information that flows through our minds and bodies from the center of the universe to a cluster of psytrons that forms into our bio fields at a subatomic level. That cluster is actually a potential temporal line that begins to manifest scientific discoveries or works of art from cosmic and conceptual level to the physical realm. So in other words the Chchotl is feeding on our hopes and dreams, on our discoveries and works of art that will never see the light of day...

    The Chchotl brief anatomy. The Chchotl is made of antimatter contained into an exoskeleton made of cosmic energy and shaped by genetic data. The female has long claws that have subatomic resonating spheres useful to trap stray atoms flowing through a bio field. The "head" has some flowing pieces similar to insects mouth that resonate at a certain frequency to help the Chchotl suck cosmic energy and genetic data. The male has similar features but adapted to positioning psytrons into clusters.
    The Chchotl brief physiology. When a Chchotl sucks cosmic energy through a psytron cluster it is adding new features to it`s structure and shape. In the example below we see a tail that is almost taking shape as the female struggles to produce psytrons. At her last meal she started to grow a tail and now she is trying to complete it before it disintegrates.

    Concept: Trinosslepus

    The Trinosslepus is a rare species that is almost never found above the ground. it is about the size of a mole and like a mole tunnels beneath the surface where it can release a distinct smell from its tiny ears that attracts and weakens glow worms, while the worms are subdued and weak the Trinosselpus will use its limited psychic ability to charm the worms into one of his three nostrils. this beast is no threat to humans and its hide catches a fine price on the black market to make muffs.

    Concept: Rielecks

    Rielecks live in caves, coaxing victims in with their psychic abilities and bioluminescence. Once in range the Rieleck opens its massive mouth, using telekinesis to rip the flesh off its victims and suck it down. Rielecks are loners and are rarely seen outside of their caves, though its known to happen.

    Artist: Volscalkur

    Concept: PsyLatoric Sucker
    The PsyLatoric Sucker measures an average of 5 meters in length and weighs around 225 kilos. It spends most of its time lurking on the bottom of the verdant swampy rivers of the PsyLatoric region where it makes its home. Well disguised by the murky waters and dense foliage it lies in wait for a suitable (i.e. living) creature to come within range of it's psychic energy draining pulses. Once hit with a rapid succession of these pulses the prey becomes dazed and disoriented. When the victim gets close enough the sucker rapidly pumps water through its heart-like outer body creating a massive vortex which sucks the hapless creature down to the Suckers gaping maw. The Sucker also has 5 tentacle mouths which it uses to drain it's prey of blood before crushing and digesting it with it's main set of mouths.

    Went for blobs-like the sexy colours and pretty render

    Azathoth:Nice design, could have used a little more attention to form though-lacking a touch of volume

    NicHolS: Cool design, but for my money I'd have paid more attention to the render of the creature rather than adding the background-that said, it really gives a sense of the creature as a character, rather than just a design

    CamSyko: Looks like liquify, but the swirly goodness, however you did it looks sweet

    Gumish:really cool idea/design, perhaps the abdomen/back area is a little askew, but cool stuff nevertheless

    Icecold: Very cool brains!!real nice rendering on them

    Jack Nugget: QUite chaotic-but liking the goopy

    Apologies for not giving more opinions-been a long day

    MoralAmbiguity - got my vote, the most original idea of the whole bunch!

    this round had some really great polished entries from some good artist though i did feel very let down in the range of ideas. way too many of them felt like they were the same tentacle blobs and didnt push any boundaries other then MoralAmbiguity. the horns were honestly the most original idea this round and sometimes simplicity is the best option. great round everyone, see you next time!

    I apologize, I did not read we should post when we vote-
    Won't happen again!
    CamSyko Got my vote!
    -I love the giant eye on the back concept, imagine a who swarm of those little guys all blinking at you as they scuttle towards you with those gaping sucker mouths and tentacles! Or imagine coming back from a swim and finding a staring eye stuck to your leg! Love the texture of the shell too!

    Chronoperates
    -This was a close second- I really love this one, and it is very well done! the whole idea of a creature so specialized for eating brains- the giant talons that hook under the color bone of it's victim was a nice touch (although maybe a bit unpractical for chasing prey?) and the "love brains" thought bubble cracked me up!

    Gumish
    -Very cool creature! Love the design and idea of how it digs under schools to get brain waves from students!

    Jefferson oneal
    -Your's is just plain awesome! Super cool idea and a very ambitious piece for a week-long turnaround (to a newb like me anyway!) would have been cool to see a breakdown of the actual creature it's self though.

    Alien Ape Star
    -Love the micro idea- something so tiny that we can't see it so it really could exist! Very well done too!

    Crowsrock
    -This one is great! Love the vacant expressions on the couple watching TV- and your explanation in the brief of how the creature gets stuck if brain waves were to low was hilarious!

    I could go on and on but then my post would get way to long!
    I'm very excited to be in this round and am looking forward to next week!

    Blobs you got my vote. Your style has the quintessial TSR creature look to it. I love the colors.

    I enjoy everyone's interpetation. Some that I found notible in no particular order are: Jack Nugget, Alien Ape Star, Crowsrock, Daveneale, Nichols, and Camsyko.

    thanks and I'm sorry for my sexist comment a while back.

    Hey at least you had the brass to say it. I mean there's a LOT of vaginas in this thread.

    Thanks for the props, nichols. I'm thinking this comes down between you and blobs.

    Chronoperates - I like the energy and action coming from it, but it's washed out next to the more vibrant colour of the action shot you put in the corner. I would have liked to have seen the main picture match that chroma.

    Just a wee bit of housekeeping. We did have one person self-vote, but he caught it before anyone else did, so I won't do the whole 'stupid lame moron' schtick like it says in the rules.

    And he has asked me to change his vote to blobs which I have done.

    Just making mention of it, so everyone knows its on the up and up.

    Carry on folks!
