    concept:
    Swan Mantid
    Upon reaching Dagobah, Yoda realized that certain habits he learned to cherish had to change. Such was the way of the Force. His rations ran out, and there was little edible vegetation native to Dagobah. Yoda understood that in order to survive the many years of exile, waiting for the son of Anakin to grow up and join him on Dagobah, Yoda would have to forgo his strict vegetarian diet and become an omnivore. He did not mourn those creatures he captured and ate, for those that pass on from this life become one with the Force. But, he did have certain rules of engagement with respect to hunting and capturing food. Yoda only allowed himself to capture and eat small predators that were, themselves, caught in the act of catching prey. Yoda felt this honored the circle of life that was the Force and in the process saved a life more vulnerable than the one he had to take in order to eat. Yoda was particularily fond of Dagobah's Sawn Mantid, an amphibious crustacean that was very swift and very beautiful to watch in action. The Swan Mantid could make itself so still and move so quickly in its strike for swamp minnows, capturing one tested even the reflexes of a master Jedi. However, Yoda was never embarrassed to admit to himself that more than a few Swan Mantids had escaped his grasp...for that too was the way of the Force.

    Sombrazul
    (puteulanus phasmatis ingredior)
    These majestic beasts roam the little creeks that surround the amazone river deep inside the rainforests of Brazil. They are extremely shy and have rarely been encounterd by humans. The native indians of the area regard them as direct descendants from god, and worship them by bringing them offers. Theyre name stems from the portuguese translation for blue shadow. Because of their shy nature people only see a blue shadow moving through the woods. They are also called blue spirit or blue ghost by the natives.
    The Sombrazul feeds mainly on fish and prefers to live close to small creeks. They use their long limbs to wade through the undeep waters and hunt for fish. The Sombrazuls have no natural enemies. Their skin is covered with a highly poisonous slimy coating that protects them from harm. Their brightly colored skin is a warning for predators and these colors are also used in the mating rituals. The skin that hangs between their long legs is their main tool in attracting a mate. The Sombrazul with the most flamboyant skin decoration will be most succesfull in reproduction.

    A fat lazy creature living near creeks. It spend most of it's time sleeping. While awake they go out looking for food or they take a walk. They mainly eat plants growing only at creeks. Sometimes they accidentally happened to catch a fish during their walk, that's the most awesome food they can think off.
    When defending against predators. They use their shell to guard, waiting for an great opportunity. They'll quickly roll over their predator once they have the chance. Because of his large body, the predator will get crushed.

    concept:
    Thromgol
    “The Thromgol, a new species, was discovered as recently as last week by Nicholas Cloister, professional cave-diver. This footage of the creature was taken in the remote south-west of Mississippi State, at a night-time exploration of an inaccessible creek. Zoologists, at first uncertain of its authenticity, had to yield when Mr Cloister brought forth skeletal evidence in the form of a cranium. Speculations and theories now say that this so called ‘Creek Crawler’ lives in water-filled caves and is active only at night. The great horn is most likely used when hunting, and evolved for an upward stabbing movement, aimed at larger fish and mammals swimming around at the surface. The Thromgol seems to be a quick crawler, a rather proficient swimmer and can probably move at some speed on land. Residents in the nearby vicinity are recommended caution when moving through watery areas and close to deeper creeks.”

    Swampy
    Swampy is a regular creek crawler, which lives in almost every dark & wet place of fantasy forests. Most of his free time he's hunting for pink rabbits. Rumors say that Swampy is the one of descendants of the Ancient Ones, but we're unable to confirm that. One thing is sure - if Swampy is in forest, none of pink rabbits can feel safe and comfy!

    The Glah Klund Gullywyrm inhabits the shallow creekbeds around Muskingum and Guernsey counties in the Eastern region of Oh Heighyo. Non threatening to humans, the GK Gullywyrm is the fastest known species of annilideavermi known and can commonly be seen crawling through the many creeks in search of food. Propelling its movements are silia like nodules on its underbelly moving in rapid succession enabling the creature to cover great distances compared to some of it's smaller cousins.

    concept:
    Angler Mud Mouse
    This little creek crawler has the unique ability to blow air through a tiny vessel in its tongue, causing the bulbous tip to float. It will twitch its tongue to attract insects or small fish. When its prey has landed or nibbled on the tip of its tongue a small amount of air is forced back into the mouth of this predator, signaling it to attack. With its large and powerful gills, this animal can create a powerful suction to slurp in its prey within a fraction of a second. They crawl along creek beds with only two whimpy feet, that barely keep their heavy shells and fat little bellies from sinking.

    concept:

    The ellusive creek crawler is seen here in it's natural habitat. The creek crawler is known for it's humanlike front appendages. young creek crawlers are often mistaken for men crawling around on their hands and knees, hence it's namesake. The creek crawler's diet consists of small insects and plantlife it finds by overturning rocks in the streams and lakes of coniferous forests. The few times it has been seen in the wild, the creek crawler was seen curiously picking things up with it's prehensile hands, inspecting them in a fashion similar to a young child exploring the world around it. There are 7 known creek crawlers in the world, 2 in captivity, it is estimated by 2015 their population will be increased to over 30 through controlled breeding. It is classified where the captives are at the time being.

    When the firefly look his prey, he emites a signal for his school. All of them come on the surface and free a part of these gas (blue light, hence the name). It burn in contact with air and high-speed drive the firefly to his prey. The heat created by the gaz burn, spreads over the carapace. The condensate around his head creates an air bubble who cancel the frictions of water. He can attain 300km/h. Once in the corpse of prey, he can freely eat inside.

    concept:
    The Wandering Flower
    Effloresco Errabundus
    Evolved from a vicious aquatic predator, the Wandering Flower has desived a completely different method of feeding. Rather than having a mouth, the Wandering Flower uses specialized feeding organs to dissolve prey. These mimic the lilypads that are found in slow streams and pools. If an unfortunate frog should happen to land on this pad, it would find itself stuck by a substace secreted by glands covering the surface. The pad wraps up the frog much like a fly in a venus fly-trap and pulls it under the surface with the flexible muscle stalk, where stomach juices dissolve it completely. Since the Wandering Flower has no use for a mouth or deadly fangs anymore, these fangs have become specialized appendages for hauling it across the rocky creek beds, and the legs have shrunk to puny stubs that act mainly as kickstands to support the heavy backside. Without any real predators, the Wandering Flower has no significant defenses other than a tough outer shell. When threatened though, it will raise its large claws and expose a bright orange underside in an attempt to frighten away any danger.

    concept:
    Mudplow
    The world Bromosh is in many ways remarkably similar to the young Earth, but differs importantly in one aspect: its gravity, which is fifteen percent greater than Earth's. Because of this, the dominant vertebrates of Bromosh are not tetrapods but octopods, relying on eight limbs to resist the pull of gravity. Pictured here are three octopods known as Mudplows, one adult and two juveniles. They and their kin are the evolutionary equivalents of amphibians such as Eryops and Diplocaulus of Earth's Carboniferous and Permian epochs. Six of their eight limbs have evolved into sturdy legs to shove its massive skull through the silt. The rearmost limbs are a pair of vestigial flippers. Though serving only as another pair of pushing limbs for the adults, the more agile juveniles use them to aid in swimming. Mudplows feed on worms and the other small inverterates that burrow in the silt on creekbeds. Their broad skulls are extremely sensitive to their movements, and it is thought that the Mudplow has an electromagnetic sense, similar to the hammerhead shark. Due to their large size, adult Mudplows have no natural predators.

    Creek Crawler (plíživec potočný) – this creature lives in creeks in Scotland and loves fresh fishes. To catch his favorite food he use special hunting techinque. On his back are six sticky tentacles which use as temptations for fishes. When he siting and sunbathing on rocks he wave and vibrate with sticky tentacles and snatching on it insect which flying around (mostly dragon-flyies, flies, butterflies,...) Now he has prepare temptation for his food. He can use two methods how to catch fishes. In first one he siting at rock as normal and use tentacles as fish-hook, wait for good chance and then attack on fish which eating temptation from his „fish-hook“. Second one, more effective, is underwater hunting. He jump to water, bury mud at creek bottom and only visible things are tentacles preparing to feed fishes (picture two). When he feel grub away fish he fast attack on fish.

    year 2045 AD
    These creatures where mermaids for only 20 years ago, they lived in the creek and in the lakes where it leads to.
    they never even saw a human being, until one day a researcher came in there habitat to search for new recources to help them overcome the shortage of powersuply, he found a great source of uranium.
    In no time big factory's had been build in there once so peacefull surroundings and there creek's and lakes became more and more polluted.
    As the years went by ,the ammount of nuclear waste was gettin worse And in the population of mermaids Mutanized children where being born, the hatred for mankind begon to grow.
    It was time for revenge.
    The mermaids began taking away children from the industrial villages as payback for there deformed children.
    but human wouldnt let them, they began a massive hunt for mermaids and soon they where almost extinct and the ones left where creaping and crawling trough there polluted creeks and lakes..

    This creature of ghyll is designed for the research of the paleontology. It is a reptile with a not very big body. It lives in the area near the ghyll and preys on beasties and sometimes it also hunts the birdies and eggs. It is alone and cruel. When it comes the time of copulation, the body of the male will become colorful to attract the female. It incubates near the river and spawn together and each time it will lay 8 to 16 eggs. The life span of this creature will be 20 to 30 years.

    Amberia
    "MOOOOMMMYYYY!!! LOOK AT THAT!!! I FOUND A BEAUTIFUL AMBER STONE!!!"
    The little girl was so happy, that she found an amber stone in the creek of Boorshtin and on top a fly was enclosed in the stone.
    What the people don't know about this stones is their origin. Science was wrong for ages when they claimed that amber stones are the result of very old rosin...
    There lives a strange species in the creeks - the Amberia. It walks underwater with its eyes above the water surface, looking for flying little insects. When the Amberia spotted its prey it catches the insect with its long tounge, which reminds of an ant eaters tongue. Since the stomach of Amberias are very sensitive, they can't digest the prey like we or most animals do. They have evolved an unique way of treating their meal. While filtering important substances of the insect in the stomach, the Amberia produces with an extra organ where the meal is going afterwards a shell of a special material, which completely covers the insect and makes it easier winnowing it.
    The product is what we call an Amber Stone, in fact it's the Amberias dung...

    Tepiic
    The Tepiic has a lifespan of 500 years, there is one drawback to his longevity. This mammal develops his physical strenght at a much slower rate than other mammals. His lack of physhical strenght forces the Tepiic to use his weak limbs to crawl his way around. They are frequently found in shallow creeks because they are aided by the smooth rocks within the creeks. This helps them move at a faster speed. By age 300 the Tepiic reaches its adulthood and can become as tall as 50 feet.

    So many wonderful entries... this is gonna be tough, but I vote for... rawwad

    I picked it because it actually looked like it lived in/around the creek, the size wasn't very overwhelming (after all it's a "creek crawler") and the way it gathers its food is only natural based on the creek surroundings... plus, I can't take my eyes away from it. =)

    My next two choices are Ostrander and KaWaii.

    Thanks for for another awesome piece. I've already looked at your tut too. Screw greyscale! I'm doing it your way! Jakkas knows best.

    you got my vote rawwad. i loved how freakin slimy and gross your creature is, i can damn near feel it's gooey skin through my screen. It was a tough decision though. Supervlieg, i really liked yours too, it's very believable, but the size comparison in the lower left doesn't seem accurate. maybe it's the camera angle but it looks at least 3 times the height of a human. that's not why i didn't vote for u tho supervleig, i'm just impartial to slimy things. other favorites of mine is stephan_R's; i'm lovin that lighting, totally amazing. and JakkaS i really like the seashell armor on the outside of your creature, totally cool. good round.

    I voted for Jakkas, great render and interesting creature. I like the amber turds as well. The shells really make him unique. Superv I thought your environment was stunning, and the creature design was fantastic. The colors on the creature itself turned me off a bit, but great piece. I will give a detailed response about everyone's work when I'm not AT work.

    Another fun round, thanks for all the feedback on mine.
