    ROUND #287 – Coral Reef Camoflauge

    topic:

    ROUND#287: Coral Reef Camouflage

    Coral reefs are one of the most vibrant and biodiverse environments in the world. With such a multitude of colour, texture, and with such density of creatures the biological creativity required to hide oneself, either for predatory or defensive purposes, becomes all that much more difficult. Your task this week is to create a creature which resides within a coral reef, that has a unique method of disguising itself amongst its surroundings. The caveat here is that the method of camouflage must not involve cloaking/transparency, rather it must be able to perfectly imitate its surroundings, or even other species of creature.

    Round requirements:

    - The creature must reside within a coral reef environment

    - The creature must have some method of camouflaging itself

    - The method of camouflage must not relate to transparency


    Deadline:

    January 5th, 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    you said a 'unique method of camouflage'. i can't think of anything that coral dwelling animals don't already implement. can we use methods of camouflage that real animals living in reefs already implement?

    only two entries last week so I am in for this week.
    I have been lurking but it looks like peeps need to stop lurking and start doing... crustacea meet cephalopodia.

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    Spdry - Yes, you can. But try to think of something unusual. Try to do something that you consider to be cool, unusual and (if you can) unique.

    man, all i can think about is scorpionfish, anglers, decorator crabs, boxer crabs, the hermit crabs that wear anemones, & mimic octopi. i don't want to just add coral protuberances to a creature i invent. bah, this is hard. anything i can think of already exists!

    trying to start with color rather then grayscaling. so far its been fun. just playing with shapes at this moment. so far its looking like a crocodile that lost a fight against a reef.

    Some potential background sketches.
    The little beasties are not my submission for the creature itself.
