    Round #172 5 Legs and SuperVision

    Topic:
    #172 5 Legs and SuperVision

    What is it about Earth that leaves super predators with 4 legs I often ask myself? What if this guys was to have a fifth? Where would it go, why would it be there and what would be the advantages and disadvantages of having this extra limb? Now, what happens when you combine this with having the most advanced vision in the universe? I'm not going to dictate what makes this creature's vision "Super", but for few examples it could be anything from binocular, to night vision to some kind of spectrum that we can't see. The point is that it's up to you to make it obvious that this beast has 5 legs, and its eyes are its most notable feature. I'm sure there'll be a few questions so don't hesitate to ask.


    Deadline:
    Monday April 5th, 2010.

    Awesome. I was really excited to start another cow, and this topic is great. Much more up my alley.

    Interesting, now to figure out a way to make it not look awkward or a giant penile organ between four legs .

    Since you mentioned Earth there, does it have to be realistic, or can it be a magic-based creature/spirit?

    I suppose it could be magic based, but I'm more concerned with the anatomy of your design and does everything make sense in the way it's situated on your creature's body. The vision thing could go either way in terms of its source, but as long as the eyes are noticeable, whatever you want to do you can.

    Cool! Thanks, Scorge!

    So yeah, this guy uses his magical true-seeing boatlight eyes to hunt down and neutralize invisible creatures. I'm thinking of moving the arm he holds his face with more towards the side since there doesn't seem to be a very good attachment point on the front (plus unweildly to clip his face back on) and add some weight to the opposite side to balance out that asymmetrically-placed arm.

    OK I will do this right!! I hope with help!!
    These are some quick studies and ideas. Any comment and critics would be highly appreciated!!! I will not go further until I decide which concept to follow.
    I will do more doodles, just to see if I get a better idea.

    Ok, so I don't think I'm going to be able to get a finished image in, but I couldn't help myself from scribbling up a quick idea.

    This was the first thing that jumped into my head. I think it was sort of meant to be a land variation of an angler fish. . .

    the leg is the jump starter.
    The eye is used in mating season to fertilize the female over the distance.
