    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: Voltaic Scorpion


    The Voltaic Scorpion gathers solar energy from the sensors on its back and converts it into electric current that it can discharge through it's pinchers and tail.

    I haven't entered anything in a while but wanted to try this one out even though I just got started this morning.

    Concept: Thunderclap Bug


    Thunderclap bugs are anomalies in the natural world. At only 5 centimeters across, this small creature has a very large punch. Inside of its specially developed carapace, a strip of highly charged fur waits to dispel its voltage with a rub of the abdomen. The sound created when the electric charge breaks the sound barrier is deafening along with the jolt of 5000 volts. Eggs are carried and defended in a pouch under the discharge area. Damn, my writing sucks. The end.

    Concept: Tree Spark


    The "Tree Spark" caterpillars use a chemical reaction to create electricity and defend themselves against predators. When they eat, their digestive system breaks plant matter down into a substance that reacts with UV light to produce ozone. This gas ionizes the air around them. From there, filaments running the length of their body become charged and float around them. These filaments act as an electric fence for the caterpillar. Tree Sparks are nocturnal insects, they spend their days laying in the sun, letting the sacs at the back of their bodies fill with gas. At night, they eat and entertain the locals by electrocuting predators dumb enough to bite at the little glowing worms. The small spark they produce gives them their name.

    Artist: Orm Irian

    Concept: Thunder Bug


    These creatures are hunters to be feared, using electricity to paralyze and kill their prey.
    Little is known about how they actually produce these electric discharges, but it is believed that the red blister-like features are involved. Some believe that they actually don't produce the energy themselves, but rather store it. Indication that this theory might be true is the fact that these creatures gather at elevated locations during thunderstorms, potentially to collect the energy of the lightnings.

    Special thank to scorge for this entry... Spent quite some time to finish this one, that's why I vanished from the WIP thread. ^^ Anyway, learned a lot of new and fantastic stuff this round, which I intend (or at least try) to keep using for future entries.

    Hey guys, in Rob's absence I went ahead and opened up the poll so you're now free to vote! I sent him a message but haven't heard back yet. If I get some time today I could set up a new topic as well. Anyone interested?

    Hey scorge, if you do find the time to keep it going, I can at least guarantee to pull my own weight's worth of art and critique, such as it is, for the cause.

    Really, I'd hate to see this activity vanish like that. It's always been a major inspiration, even when I couldn't participate myself. I credit this place and the participants here for much of my growth as an artist, so it's really sad for it to just quietly fade into nothing.

    Was just thinking about it right now. I'm on it. I'd hate to see it go away as well.
