    Concept: No.246

    These super intelligent creatures are nicknamed; No.246 because scientists estimated their IQ to be as high as 246.

    Their senses have become really powerful through evolution. They can see anything from four angles at the same time using their eight eyes. While they use their big ears and whiskers to hear and sense any danger around them.

    Sitting on their big tails they can manipulate any object with their hands while holding it tightly with their feet. they walk on two legs but run on all four.
    Having four hands and being very light weight they can also climb any object, such as trees and plants, but also any invention they're working on like rockets and spaceships to fly to distant planets.
    Their physical strength is weak, but they're very quick and agile making them hard to catch.

    They have been peacefully developing their tech for years, until mankind accidentally caught one in a pouching trap. Now that humans know of their existence they’ve been trying to enslave them all for their own good.

    Artist: Bertling

    Concept: Kavarog

    The Kavarog was originally an amphibious creature of Amazonia. In addition to the 2 eyes on the head, the Kavarogs have 6 additional eye spots on stalks located on the tip of their tails. These eye spots are fairly primitive organs and they are primarily used to detect motion.

    Interestingly, there are special organs containing superconducting coils buried within the palms of the creature. This allows the Kavarog to levitate metals via the Meissner effect. It is not clear what evolutionary advantages this offered. However, after domestication, this ability, coupled with the creature's highly developed frontal cortex, allowed it to become incredible inventors.

    Concept: Grumagon


    The Grumagon race lives in the forest since a time before the time, grumagons are perfectly disguised in the forest , the green tone of your skin makes an almost invisible in terms of camouflage. That race are extremely advanced in terms of technology, the brain of grumagon's are divided into 3 parts and are 3x more faster and accurate then the human brain, but that race are extremely peace full and banish the use of weapons and all types of violence and that are the way as the humans take advantage on grumagon's .when the humans come with your gun 's grumagon's have no chance of fighting. That race is capable of create any types of gadgets and machines, but nothing can overcome the destructiveness of human beings.

    Artist: Duman

    Concept: The Luminous Cnidaria
    Before the enslavement of the species by invasive explorers, The Luminous Cnidaria lived peacefully near the banks of the great Amazon River. Unique to the jellyfish family, this particular group possesses both eyes and the ability to move on land. This creature, living is such a hostile environment, adapted and incredible intelligence to compensate for its very flimsy body structure. For reasons currently under study, the Luminous Cnidaria has an innate understanding of even the most complex technological systems.

    Artist: Apielotje

    Concept: Aranea cerebrum


    Aranea Cerebrum literally means 'brain spider'. Hangs on 4 of it's 'soft' legs, thus moves very slowly. Younger specimens are more mobile and usually help collect materials with which the 'eight eyes inventor' invents technological wonders. Seamlessly emotionless Aranea Cerebrum has a collective consciousness which enables it to achieve great teamwork with younger en older specimen.

    Artist: Supervlieg

    Concept: Brainslug


    Where exactly the first brainslug was first captured remains unknown. What is known is that they posses a superior intellect due to their enormous brain, roughly 200 times the size of the average human brain. It is believed the brainslugs resided in the depths of the ocean, although their ability to breath in and out of water baffles the scientists. On land the slugs have a hard time supporting its own weight. During its captivity it has come up with many inventions that have outdone the greatest human scientists. Most notable inventions in their name are the dog-goggles, the butter stick and plastic wrapped couches. They're currently working on even greater innovations to enrich human lives.

    Artist: scorge

    Concept: Invenerian
    Captives for a century, their dilapidated wings and eight glossy eyes tell the tale of a weary and abused species whose intellect and potential for bettering the planet has been sheltered and locked away by the most dominant of species.
    Invenerians upon their discovery in 1919 were a proud and beautiful species, but their highly advanced genius when determining the best structure for inventions and their vulnerability to the weapons of man quickly doomed them to be the beasts of burden "assisting" us in furthering our own selfish and ever impoverished need for something better.
    The typical Invenerian's physiology is quite unique on this planet, and since its discovery scientists have been fascinated by not only the brain of this creature, but it's eight eyes, each set having a different function and separate purpose. Central, and mostly obvious in the arrangement, are the steel blue irises of a madly thinking being. These are the beasts primary eyes and are used for everyday tasks. Below and centered between these, the much smaller and highly adapted magnifying lenses. Used for magnifying objects and vision by as much as 800 times, upon the death of Invenerians, doctors and scientists alike pay upwards of 2-3 million dollars for each lens, which are then sold to wealthy clients for twice as much. At the topmost portion of the head, the most specialized set of eyes (4) seen in the natural world. Each eye, has the ability to focus in on the different spectrums of light,from ultraviolet, to infrared, while the set combined as used as whole, is believed to allow this great creature to see dark matter itself.
    The large sensory organs under the eyes, seen here as orange(although they change from specimen to specimen), are super sensory olfactories, used in picking up the slightest scent of harmonics in metals, and earthen materials. The Invenarians use these super senses, along with their four arms, to create some of the most innovative inventions the world has seen today, and will continue to do so for as long as we can keep them captive. Eventually though, I'm sure they'll invent something that will wipe us out in a heartbeat, and take over the world and others. But that's just my opinion.

    Poll is up! No cuts this week.

    I'm a big fan of the pieces by our seasoned veterans Supervlieg and scorge, I'll have to deliberate a while before I come to a decision on this one.
    Edit: I ended up voting for scorge. While I loved both entries, the embedded narrative in scorge's piece really did it for me.

    jaapOomen: Awesome, so cool, its weak its intelligent its slavish awesome interpretation

    Bertling: Nice Old school Einstein type yipe, I would suggest you look more into how muscles connect, when ant leg arm is squeezed which muscle gets pumped and why which is relaxed which is tensed. Hope you see more from you in the future with more muscle knowledge!

    artist in side: You know, reading its form is hard, as a silhouette is just OK,I would suggest you look more into how muscles connect, when ant leg arm is squeezed which muscle gets pumped and why which is relaxed which is tensed. Hope you see more from you in the future with more muscle knowledge!

    Duman: Jelly in the belly

    Apielotje: I don't thinks its a weak creature, it can easy take on or kill humans

    Supervlieg: lovely title n interpretation,

    hodoca: this guy is such a poser

    scorge: like the tension in the scene, the victim n slavish awesome design too
