Hey folks, it's me again and it's time to think about moving habitats. For this 2-weeker, think, the Atlas of creatures. Carrying the weight of a world, or at least the weight of some terrain on their shoulders... back... shell? Whatever they happen to have. Anyway, the focus this week is a creature that is either so massive that it carries an small island of terrain on it's back, or a creature which has otherwise evolved in such a way that a habitat has formed atop it. What kind of habitat it holds is for you to decide, but it must hold some form of life, be that plant, animal, fungus or a whole ecosystem. The world is your oyster to create, but create it quick, before it wanders off...
- The creature must have a clearly defined "back"
- The creature must carry or host some form of terrain on their back
- The terrain on the creature's back must support life
I'm not great at showing scale, so what I might do is an animal that allows itself to be used as a 'base' for bees, the bees get to pollinate more stuff and the creature gets free delicious honey, num num.
couldn't believe that this topic has never been covered in previous rounds
I mean this is some sort of classic, the huge whale/turtle/whatever with a habitat on its back
just think about the discworld by Terry Pratchett, the whale/fish with an island on its back (which actually goes back to the medieval times) or as a more recent example the lion-turtle from the series Avatar
since there is only little room for creativity this time I decided to focus more on the artwork and keep the concept generic and simple
(seems as if this is the only thing that matters in here anyway, yes I'm whiny again)
trying to focus on details to enhance the size and a good focal point this time
