    eh... scorge... I may be mistaken, but I believe you forgot to start the WIP thread!

    either that, or my browser is malfunctioning...

    Didn't forget, doing it right now. It's easier to set up the final thread first then the wip thread. Technical mumbo jumbo thing.

    hmmm... RogueToad, the reason I placed that in my signature is simply in case I went on one of my rants cocerning what I believe to be the unlikleyhood of anything supernatural, but anyhow, this is not the place to discuss such matters, but you can feel free to send me a private message, or carry on such a conversation if one does in fact emerge in my sketchbook...

    this thread is just for the art! XD

    Concept: Trufflemunch

    The Trufflemunch, now extinct, is quite aptly named. The trufflemunch was a woodland critter who fed solely on the rare and hard to find truffle. The trufflemunch had an overdeveloped sense of smell which was perfectly suited for finding the buried fungus. Settlers learned of this creatures ability to find truffles and took advantage. This caused a great competition for resources and saw to a rapid decline in truffles and trufflemunch. Deforestation and overpopulation, as well as an overwhelming culinary desire ultimately led to the extinction of the trufflemunch in 1903.

    Concept: Babylon Forest Harvester

    Heres my creature.........
    Under the lush sprongi forests of the equatorial regions on the planet Babylon, a hudge organism is in deep hibernation. The Babylonian forest harvester is a large herbavoure which
    has never been successfully catagarised due to it having the genetic makeup of a worm genus and that of a reptile like organism. It hibernates under the forest floor for 10 years and only emerges when its mid summer
    and the tropical storms are at there height aswell as when the local flora are at their most lush.
    It feeds by scraping a hudge mouthful of flora and accidently fauna using its hudge lower mandabul. The creature only feeds once from the ground close to were it lays before half burrowing itself again.
    Growing out of the skin on the creatures back are variouse plants and fungi life. It is not yet known if they a symbiotic or parasitic to the organsim.

    The Harvester

    Here is my Harvester



    Artist: Aldebaran

    Concept: The Devreta Harvester


    The northern skylands of the Devreta-Teritory are home to colossal floating wyrmcreatures, which are called Harvesters by the Skynavigatorguild.
    They are mostly omnivore, but normaly prefer the taste of fresch plants over the dry wood of a Skyship. The many wild forestislands are providing plenty of food for Harvesters and they remain in those abandoned areas. Once open a time, in the past civil wars, a warlord burned down the forestislands near the borders of his enemy, so that the Harvesters shoult attack the main islands. To his misfortune, his own ships were waiting to start the siege after the Harvesters would attack, but instead they devour him and his troups.
    Some bold or insane Skyknights sometimes tries to defeat an old Harvester, to optain some of his metallic armorscales, to forge unique weapens and armory.
    The rarity of those items told another story about how sucessfull these attemps were.

    Forest Harvester

    Artist: Homerid

    Concept: Bark Driller


    After a large scale space exploration mission in 2234, humanity discovered the first inhabited planet in the nearby Epsilon Eridani star system.
    During the first surface expeditions, colonists took note of an extraordinary amount of local flora and fauna. Among them was the "Bark Driller", a 25 inch flying insect-like creature that feeds on minerals and nutrients commonly found on moss in the inner bark of rotten trees.
    These creatures usually gather in small swarms, and travel trough the forest during daylight. They use a drill looking appendage (making a strong high-pitched sound) to remove the outer bark layer off rotten trees, and extract the nutrients from moss with a tubular shaped tongue. After digesting the food, the creature drops the remaining sawdust and wood splinters on a receptacle on his back, and through chemical reactions, ignites them to provide heat and protection from night predators, and also to attract mates.

    Concept: Luftsang
    - this insect finds its home in hot forests were the drocer fruit-flowers bloom. Protected by the petals is a precious fruit coveted by the luftsang. The forearms of the luftsang assure that the flower fruit is harvested easily, the tentacles aid in the transportation of the fruit holding it safely as it flies across the forest. After it is consumed, the core from the fruit is dropped away contributing this way to the seeding of the drocer.

    Artist: sketchius

    Concept: Screwbug


    The screwbug is a large worm-like creature that feeds upon trees in a slow, upward spiral progression. It takes several days or even weeks for a screwbug to eat its way to the top of a tree. At this point, it inches its way back down, in reverse, and moves on to a fresh tree, leaving behind a signature corkscrew carving.

    Screwbugs are highly highly are poisonous if eaten and emit a foul stench when provoked.

    Concept: Ka Ryygel



    The Ka Ryygel or “Forest Harvester”, are a long lived and colossal species of gentle giants found on the planet Telus V, where every 600 years or so they all simultaneously awaken from hibernation and consume almost 50% of the planets thick forests, pulling the trees from the ground with their expendable arms, then roasting all plant matter in a furnace like stomach, before filtering through the remaining ash and charcoal for precious nutrients in an additional two secondary stomach chambers.

    When interplanetary settlers first encountered the Ka Ryygel they initially saw them as a global threat and bid to destroy them. However they soon realised that these herbivorous giants actually played an integral role in the planets ecology, in a similar fashion to the forest fires of Earth, clearing land to promote new growth, then fertilising it with their waste materials and the undigested seeds, that the Ka Ryygel spray from the tip of their long hollow tail.

    Concept: Forest Harvester
    The Forest Harvester was originally a mutated panda.
    The abnormality appeared to be very advantageous for food intake.
    This resulted in a aggradation in size.
