    Here's my final

    The idea here is that they're in a sort of in-between evolution state. Being aquatic, they have semi-transparent bodies, showing most of their internal organs which showcases their strength as a species that is worthy of having their evolutionary cycle sped up (formations of complex structural systems, respiratory, etc.). Their outer details (being all tentacle-y) is like some sea-dwelling creatures, but is also reminiscent of simpler single-celled organisms, showcasing their early evolutionary state. Hope you like... C&C welcome...

    crude creations of another life form to the eyes of humankind, europans seem to be well suited for their aquatic environment.

    Concept: Native Europan

    In 20,001AD, the native europans have evolved into an amphibious crits that allows them to travel on ground as well, still mostly of them live in the water but some has traveled a long way to a land still covered in ice.

    Concept: Europan
    This aquatic creature evolved since 2010 until the year 20,001 into an intelligent creature with a budding culture. In that time, it has also gained some features that allow it to traverse the icy lands above the waters below. It can use its webbed feet and hands to walk, though it is most at home in the water. All breathing apparatus is located on the chest, where its gills and "nostrils" are located. Also on its flippers are a finger and a thumb which are not webbed so that it may grip and manipulate objects.

    Europan: 20,001

    Artist: retrodog

    Concept: Europan (20,001)


    I came up with this supplemental text to help myself when coming up with some ideas. I don't know if it's appropriate, but I threw it in anyway

    --
    These Europans are quickly growing into a civilised, highly intelligent race.

    The tendrils upon their back are a carry-over an earlier period in their evolution. During this time they were comparable to a crustacean, they could use the tendrils for communication and camouflage, sometimes simultaneously (The did this by hiding among urchins and other foliage).

    We believe it is this ability to communicate silently & hide from predators amongst the fauna of Europa that has helped them to survive and become a prolific race. The tendrils can also be used to supplement swimming.

    They primarily eat carrion, plankton, and specific types vegetation. They have been known to actively hunt, but given their relative size to the edible creatures, this is rarely successful. They have a varied diet, and a highly acidic & complex digestive system which seems immune to common disease and infection.

    They've begun to create & standardize their own language, forming their equivalent to written word. Being that they communicate with a combination of sound & signals from their tendrils, it has been difficult to translate their tongue.

    It has been noted that their palms emit a water-repelling wax-like substance which helps them grip objects.

    Concept: Europan Shellglider


    The Europan shellgliders have gained their name by the smooth way they slide through the water with their four paddles. They use their strong tentacles for movement as well but apparently only to accelerate. Their main purpose seems to be to hold the Europans still during their rest or in the occasional strong currents by grabbing something. It is claimed that the multiple tentacles could have other purposes as well but they remain to be found. The creatures communicate with a strong bioluminescence which allows them to hunt in packs and socialize even in absolute darkness. They have boneless and soft tendrils with fingerlike appendages at the end of them. The Europans are known to grab sharp stones with these "hands" and cut their prey to smaller pieces and consume it more easily this way since they don't have any teeth.

    I understand if this does not go through to the voting round. I started late, and noticed the thread was opened so I kept working on it.
