    READ THIS!!!

    Ok, fungi picked the topic for this round...

    Everyone who wants to enter this activity, remember this is about CREATURES, NOT characters.

    This means your entry should look like a general emperor like an ant-queen or a silverback gorilla...no individual emperors which are more a character!!!

    Now that's what i had in mind when starting this activity...i wanted to have something like an encyclopedia with different creatures which could exist but are results of the artists imagination...something like a description of our minds fauna...

    characters can't be found in animal lexicons, or?

    Fozzy- I just want to know where to draw the line between "character" and "Creature".. was my shadow producer too much of a character..or is that considered ok as a creature by your standards? just curious, so i know for this round..
    I can understand that at times something can be considered a character more so than a creature even if its not human, for example star wars: A character such as Darth Maul although not human differs in respect to a character like jar jar binks who is also a "character" but less human in appearance. There can be many creatures with human like stances, posture, body shape and anatomy..but can be considered a creature, or also a creature that would be considered more of a character if it has capabilities of wearing clothes, talking, its intellect, the way it moves...

    Its hard to differ between the two.

    I don't see why this destroys the whole topic...as i said an ant-queen is a gluttonous emperor for me...so just don't give your creature clothes or weapons or whatever it makes a character...it will work fine...

    Your Shadowless were absolutely ok, you described them as a lifeform not as "Tony - the Shadowproducer"...it wasn't an individual, more a species...now, if you want to show the creature/race which jar jar binks belongs to, draw his species, you don't need to draw jar jar binks as a character to show his species...i hope you understand what i mean...

    Also, let's take oooo... a big foot/yeti. Is that sort of thing a creature or character. I guess I also kind of touched upon a character-creature for this topic... so maybe a better example would be Nemo, from Pixar's "Finding Nemo". He's both a character and a creature. Are you looking for something that does not exude human traits? And is essentially, an "animal" as would be found in the wild? Just want to clarify. Thanks

    [EDIT] I think you just answered my questions. Basically, we're not supposed to be showing a specific creature, such as Javier the Yeti, rather, we show what the Yeti, as a race, look like. Noooow it's all clear. Thanks

    ok let me try to explain it with this example:

    If an alien race would take the human race into an encyclopedia of the species from different galaxies, they would take a photo of an average naked human, they wouldn't take a photo of Michael Jackson with his outfit (besides that he's an alien for himself )...look in an anatomy or biology book, there are photos of naked men/women posing naked for the cam, not wearing any clothes, jewelry or having accessoires like patches, glasses or anything else which makes an anonym human to a character with a personal story behind...that's because the reader of this book is interested in the anatomy or typical behaviour of this species not in the individual fate of the photographed man/woman...

    It's all crystal clear. So, I'll make a lion sitting on a throne with a crown picking his teeth and I'll call him.. oh wait. nevermind...

    I sort of love the topic -- it's a challenge, but no more a challenge than choosing something like 'king of the jungle' and doing a top of the food chain predator. It's also damn open-ended, so I think it'll be a good opportunity to run off to a comfort zone creature of some kind after my last three or four cow entries failed terribly.

    Gluttonous Emperor -
    Native to the nitrogen heavy moon of Sadukar II, the Gluttonous Emperor is a terrifying creature to behold. Standing at over 12 feet in height, the Emperor fears no other life form on the moon. Being the dominate predator on Sadukar, it viciously kills whatever it comes across, not caring whether it needs to eat or not. There are times when the Gluttonous Emperor eats so much it can hardly move, with litters of dead carcasses surrounding it. Many smaller predators will wait just out of sight of the Emperor to feed on the dead that it leaves behind as it moves on to another location. It is because of these violent excessive killing instincts and its status as the dominate species on the moon that has given it its name.
