    VCM - Vacuum Cleaner Monster. It inhales everything that is not attached firmly enough and digests plants, animals, humans mostly.
    It is known by the deep breathing that is produced by the wide vacuum cleaner mouth.

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Concept: Sound Horn
    I think a few of us had the same idea with some kind of horn that makes sound.

    Concept: Balaenus Tonitrus



    Attachment 1219770


    Dear Beth,

    We arrived on Marus Beta two and a half weeks ago. The atmosphere here is dense but the gravity is much less than that of Earth. The lush
    environment along with exotic flora and fauna have kept my interest.

    I have encountered one species here that has piqued my interest. On the fourth night after making camp, we had set a watch when the most
    terrible din occurred. A thrumming and beating noise echoed across the air and we all started at the sudden outburst. The vibration in the
    dense air was enough to literally shake the ground, and in fact many thought it was a seismic disturbance at first. Eventually we pinpointed
    the source of the sound and lo and behold it was from a creature of all things! A flying mammal somewhat similar to a manatee in size and
    basic shape, but with a few notable differences. However upon inspection of one of the beasts, I've found it is more closely related to a whale...
    what a surprise! I have tentatively named the creature Balaenus Tonitrus, for it's thundering song.

    Apparently the creature navigates the dense cloud banks the same way that whales navigate oceans back home. It blasts very loud bursts from
    two organs near it's 'trunk'. It uses a series of membranes along it's back to create a doppler-like effect by staggering the sound emissions. A large
    tympanic membrane surrounded by a partial ear receives the sound.

    Well, I must bid you farewell for now, I'm sure you will love it here when they send for the second expedition. I'm enclosing a picture of the
    creature and a size chart for reference along with all of my notes and scans.

    Hope to see you soon!

    Concept: The Flyginus


    This creature attacks his pray from above, small rodents and big insects are mostly part of his diet.. But sometimes ends up on a human skull on accident!

    After the food gets digested and decayed into gas, the ballons on his back are filled up and so he can float again, and go hunt his next target.

    The small tail acts like a propellor to guide his flight through the air

    Concept: Kweikseer

    The Kweikseer was once a great guardian of the Indian burial grounds. When the Western world came, a heroic warrior slay the beast and took it's eyes as a trophy of the kill. Now ressurrected by an old witch doctor, it strives endlessly to bring the western world to its knees and find it's killer.
    Always looking for feedback, so feel free to stop by any of these, cheers.

    Concept: Frognut
    These creatures, nowadays regarded as pests, are a result of a bizzare combination of a rare rainforest frog, half-eaten donut and a make-up kit. Large populations inhabit suburban areas and scrapheaps looking for their favourite meal: mixture of saliva, lipstick and soda. It is known that sacs located near the rear end of Frognut produce a strange humming noise, that attracts other and informs them of a newly located "prey". Whole herd can use it to mark their territory.

    Artist: DPFX

    Concept: Oculatres Campanida
    This species goes dormant for centuries at a time, and when it 'activates' it finds a cave opening and starts vibrating hard appendages against the rock to attract a mate. This specimen has awoken in a newly industrialized world and, not knowing any better, has set up shop in a steel culvert.

    Concept: Bellow Beast
    The Bellow Beast is a threatening creature though in actual reality is only dangerous when frightened. This herbivore is most at home in the grassy plains grazing all day to maintain its lumbering body. When threatened, or in some cases while mating, the Bellow beast will pass air through it's horns and air sacs creating a deep and rythmic sound that though not entirely audible will shake you straight to your bones.
    The video clip taken is of the infamous night that a Bellow Beast made it out of the Calgary Zoo and terrorized the nearby neighborhood. Thankfully no one was hurt in the incident and the beast was safely returned!

    Hillback by Pat Thompson

    COW #210
    Pat Thompson

    "Hillback"

    This beast roams southeast asia in search of tourists to trap and consume inside its shell. It moves its massive shelled body at night with a noisy effort onto roads near hotels and neighborhoods, hoping to catch a stray dog or unwary cameraman.

    Victims enter the shell's caves once, and only once.
