    concept:
    Huge Ice-Stomach
    Igens Glacies Venterius
    A deep-sea creature by nature, this ocean giant can be found in both the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans clinging to the bottoms of icebergs. The increased salinity of the ocean depths acts as a slight toxin to the Igens Glacies Venterius, and it has discovered that the perfect way to dilute the excess salt in its system is to slowly swim up to the surface in order to feast on the pure fresh water found in the iceberg. Using its mandibular hooks it grasps onto the bottom of a found iceberg and engulfs the lower portion in its thick rubbery maw, grinding away at the ice with rasp-like teeth deep within its mouth. The skin surrounding the mouth is extremely thick and rubbery to avoid gashing itself on the sometimes jagged ice, while the rest of the creature's body is covered in very loose wrinkley skin to aid in the inevitable swelling that occurs once it has consumed the entire lower portion of the iceberg.

    this creature actually lives on eating magma, it dives into the deepest of the earth to feed itself,
    but even this gigantic body isnt strong enough to withstand the enormeous heat from the magma.
    So before it dives into the earth he fills himself up with ice to stay cool

    Lotenhoss
    The Lotenhoss is a rare mammal which lives in the northern polar region. The male is extremely territorial and can’t stand the scent of another male. When encountering urinated spots, normally smaller icebergs, it stays in place until it has devoured the trace entirely, which usually means eating the whole berg. The Lotenhoss can reach a length of 30 feet. It lives mainly off seal, occasional polar bears, and larger fish. No specimen has been sighted in well over 80 years, due to heavy hunting in the early 20th century.

    concept:
    Berg-hemoth
    Creating and managing a world is a tough job, to put it mildly, so the young gods were each assigned partners with which to share the responsibilities. One such pair consisted of Baarj and Vililiuru. Baarj enjoyed creating weather and Vililiuru scored well in creating organisms and ecosystems, so the elder gods thought that the two would be able to combine their talents and create a nice world. They were wrong.
    The planet they were given was nice and mild, with an even mixture of flat land and shallow seas. Vililiuru envisioned a land of striding beasts and great schools of fish, so he asked Baarj to create a temperate climate in which his creatures could thrive. Baarj hated the idea of such a bland climate; he hoped to create a planet of grinding glaciers and howling winds. The argument escalated until the two attempted to smite each other, then they went and sulked on their own corners of the planet and did with it as they wished.
    True to his world, Baarj whipped up some truly foul and icy whether, and soon his side of the planet was covered in glaciers and icebergs. Vililiuru was less successful, for it is difficult to create good creatures without a good climate. The best he could do was a species of algae that thrived in ice. So, in frustration, he created the berg-hemoth. At well over a hundred meters tall, it was a formidable beast, able to easily wade through the planet's shallow seas in search of its favorite food: icebergs. The berg-hemoth's shovel-shaped jaw and spatulate teeth allowed it to scoop up fast quantities of ice into its gullet, where it was evaporated by its furnace-like digestive system. The steam was released into the air through several organic chimneys on its back, along with carbon dioxide, a by-product of its digestive process. The creature's furnace-like body cavity was fueled by hydrogen leeched from the swallowed water, and all nutritional needs were provided by the algae that thrived in the icebergs.
    With dozens of these beasts consuming icebergs and releasing greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere, the tide of the struggle turned to Vililiuru's favor. In response, Baarj brew up the coldest, iciest, stormiest whether he could muster. And so the battle between the two young gods raged on. The elder gods looked down at their misguided students and shook their heads.

    Gigantus Arachnida
    This rare species of spider has never been documented by scientists, but from the few blurry photos taken, it is believed this amazing spider somehow uses nuclear fission to warm its body while in the dark depths of the ocean floor. The only reason we can concieve this creature would come to the surface to devour massive chunks of floating ice, is due to the rather shallow waters it has been photographed in. It is possible, while migrating, the water can no long cool the creature when it reaches shallow water and it must consume a massive piece of ice to cool its inner core. Further research is required.

    This massive alien sea creature uses icebergs as a nursery for it's unfertilized eggs. The female will deposit the eggs in the arctic regions of the planet. The eggs form one large pod that the iceberg forms over time. The eggs can lay dormant for centuries until a male of the species detects their presence within the ice. The male will devour the iceberg and uses a thermal reaction within his body to melt away the ice and awaken the eggs for internal fertilzation. The fertilized eggs are released threw special blow hole like vents on the back of it's body.

The planet of the Solar Constrictor underwent a flash-freeze ice age, and while its finally warming up, most of natures meals are still locked in the ice, like a frozen soup waiting to be thawed.

    concept:
    Megachelonia Glaciaris
    70 million years ago this humongous sea turtle was present on every stretch of ocean in the planet, rivalling the largest pre-historic whales in size. Gently cruising the dark waters, its shell served as a a reef for many migrating species of fish around the globe, and resting place for proto-birds in their oceanic flights. Its diet consisted of all kinds of marine life, swallowed in swarms by the titanic mouth.
    But as the Earth's climate changed, the numbers of this magnificent species declined sharply. In need of enormous quantities of oxygen in the air to live, The Megachelonia was unable to cope with a new mixture of gases slowly being introduced in the atmosphere, and a large quantity of them simply could not breath in this new nytrogen-rich environment.
    A small population living in the arctic, however, found a way of fending off imminent extinction. when they came out of the water to breath, they always did so nearby an iceberg. The reason s simple: They found out they could crush the ice with their serrated jaw and swallow large quantities of it, freeing pre-historic air bubbles rich in oxygen able to keep them alive.
    This desperate measure is only enough to maintain a bare subsistence for the small population, which is slowly declining and becoming smaller with every generation. The accelerated melting of the ice caps is only precipitating the decline, and the species will be completely extinct is the next 30-50 years.

    Thermalid Gasyeye
    This unusal creature has discovered the huge store of minerals and nutrients trapped in the frozen `bergs as they formed hundreds of years ago.
    The purity of this food source persuades the usually reclusive Thermalids to rise to the surface from the deep sulpher warmed ocean trenches where they usually reside to feed upon the gasses released from the newly broken off icebergs as they wrap there super-heated bodies around them.
    They use their unique `vapour gills` to absorb the goodness and filter out the polutants. Sightless and with no mouth, they will use their sensitive electro sonar to create a vision of the world around them. Their usual food source are the deep sea vents gushing out various gaseous nutrients and minerals.

    concept:
    Iceberg Hugger
    This weird creatures usually swim in the sea around the polar areas...they often use icebergs to bridge long distances. To do so they climb on icebergs, clutching them and use their back-sails in interaction with the wind to slide through the ocean.
    When the mating season arrives the Iceberg Huggers show another unique attribute. Fertilised females clutch icebergs and begin to bite off ice and snow pieces and swallow them. They don't do this for feeding purposes!
    The females, full of fertilised eggs, own an unique organ, which covers the eggs in ice! Then hundreds of Iceberg Hugger eggs were laid-off into the ocean...
    This is a fabulous method to protect the own spawn...the ice will protect the eggs until they hatch. They don't smell or have any taste, so predators won't touch it...when the eggs hatch, the babies will eat their way through the ice, with this act of freeing themselves they also pick up valuable nutriments, which were also embedded in the ice while being in the mothers body...
    Females rarely are seen on icy landmass...why? Because they use the effective method of proceeding with their sails and the iceberg to spread their eggs over a large area, so chances are higher of getting them through the critical time...

The Bo-Tija might use its teeth to crush bigger icebergs, but it rarely needs to. It will continue this until it has made a clear path. They are known to be the cause for the decline in the polar caps.

    concept:
    Polar Ant
    Insects are organisms, that can be found in every place on Earth. Recently, scientists found its representatives near Polar Pole, drifting inside iceberg. Polar Ants, this talk is about, take the advantages of low but stable temperature povided by iceberg's interior to build there nests. In upper part, above water surface, only main shafts are bitten out. All important structures, like Queen chamber, storage rooms, nursery and more, are placed much lower. Drifting home provides safety and also opportunity to hunt. They primarily feed on animals that feel exhausted and look for place to rest after long swim or fly. Low temperature allows to storage food for long time. Within few generations, they usually decrease weight of iceberg to 70% of its initial stage. It is caused by endlessly rising number of tunnels and chambers. It can be said, they eat icebergs from the inside forming their homes.

    concept:
    Southern Souldrinker
    In the days before the New Ice Age, the Southern Souldrinker preyed up small, weak-minded mammals, tearing them open with its hude claws and siucking up its blood through its proboscis and its soul through its long, hollow horns. As the blood provided vital nutrients, the souls were kept alive in a specialised organ on the Souldrinker's belly, and used as a source of heat in the long winter months.
    However, as the global temperature dropped, many of these species died out, and the Southern Souldrinker was forced to migrate north towardds the equator in search of food. It began to prey on larger animals; then, as even these grew scarce, it began to venture into human habitation to feed on the men and women who lived there.
    However, the strength of the human souls had unprecedented side-effects. Unused to the heat and vitality of the souls, many Souldrinkers died, bursting into spontaneous combustion. The number of Souldrinkers dwindled, hunted by humans, and when the atomic bombs began to fall on many of the southernmost continents, the waters grew poisoned and the great plagues continued to wipe them out.
    However, an enterprising and unwise group of highly trained genetic engineers intervined, determined to save this unique, if dangerous, species. They held almost all the remaining souldrinkers in captivity, feeding them on dried and preserved meat, and through a mixture of gentic alterations and careful psychological training taught the Souldrinkers to use up their excess heat in melting icebergs, so that the water could be collected and used for human purposes. The Souldrinkers were allowed to drink from the water too, to keep them healthy and allow them to work for longer peroids at a stretch.
    However, desperate for proper food, the captive Souldrinkers escaped, and began once again to prey on humans, and with a way to vent their excess heat and an unlimited source of fresh, clean water, began to dominate the southern continents.
    As the human race dwindled down to only a few struggling colonies, the last of the poets, Aristh Avel, wrote the following opening verse in his last epic, entitled Souldrunk.
    Struggling through winters, harsh, cold and dry
    Trudging through snow under ever-bright sky
    Under the Souldrinker's calm, staring eyes
    Surely the humans shall meet their demise.

    Kretorius
    Giant filter feeders with gaping mouths they swim through the ocean, filtering nourishment out of the water. For these creatures, icebergs are a rich source of nutrients. The water passes out through passages all along its body, but its outer surface is so cold an icy coating develops soon after birth (as it starts swimming around). This icy mass both protects and insulates the creature, but because of the high purity of the filtered coating, the Kretorius have become a commodity. With global warming on the horizon, they're hunted and sold to drought ridden countries.

    Bore Whale
    Bore Whales have evolved in to the ultimate iceberg demolishing creatures. The ‘worker’ class of these large, loyal and social animals are known to travel in large schools capable of devouring entire icebergs at the speed a large cruise liner can travel.
    Bore Whales a have large round mouth which creates a perfect suction on solid ice bergs and by quickly constricting then releasing their spiral jaw muscles they are able to spin their angled, razor-sharp teeth and grind through ice in a circular drilling motion.
    Faithful subjects to their Queen Whale, these massive mammals work tirelessly, swimming ahead of her burrowing tunnels through the ice offering her an unobstructed journey.
    Humans have discovered by breeding these worker whales along side a boat they can be easily fooled in to believing that a boat is their Queen Whale. The whales will then grow to be loyal workers clearing a path where ever the boat travels.

    concept:
    Crastasticus Giganticus
    This huge crustacean is the sole survivor of the precambrian era, it has grown immense over millions of years. It is very rarely seen, as it lives in the deepest parts of the ocean.
    It has a strange habit of coming up every couple of months to take a big chunk of ice with it back into the murky depths. It does this because its eggs cannot survive in salt water. the creature takes the ice into a huge underwater cave system off the coast of Antartica, which also has several large hydrothermal vents inside. The vents melt the ice and it quickly floats to the top of the cave. the mother covers the eggs in a sticky mucus and sticks them to the top of the cave. the mother has to constantly resurface to bring back fresh water, in the form of Glaciers.
    Due to its immense size, there are very few cave systems in the world, and even less with Hydrothermal vents that can accomadate them. This has kept their population low over the eons, and yet this has insured their survival, because the competition for food would be too great otherwise. Only old sailors accounts of a terrible sea monster remain to prove the existence of this creature, but the penguins know the truth.

    Lots of other good entries from: Jakkas, Tom Garden, VegasMike, Cloister, FozzyBar, and Lodin.

    Very nice work.

    My vote was for Ostrander. Very funny, great Idea. Looks just like the movie poster, and the creature is a great design too, huge head and a tail. Funny stuff.

    Other ones that deserve a vote too,
    Tyranx, love the penguin perspective, really makes the creature looks huge. I like this picture very much.

    Fozzy, Always have such colorfull creatures, very cool and original designs. Reminds me of a wind surfing thing.

    Tom Garden, Love the lighting on that guy, looks like an underwater crazy tree guy. great creature.

    OH MAN, you got to be kidding me!!! SOOO MANY GOOD ENTRIES HERE!!!

    Wow, people, great round!

    Cloister, that is one of my favorites, you should maybe polish it more since it is such a pretty, warm scene. I'd improve the horns and the tail fin. Also the right claw hand. Great job!

    Tyranx, I scrolled down and when I saw half of your picture, I thought - oh, this is the guy who did the scared rabbit (with the 50-armed awesome creature)! Awesome style and skill. Man, you might just win this round!

    njoo: Sooo cute! Dig the little critter! One of my faves, no doubt!

    JakkaS: Once again, the most handsomly rendered creature here. Beautiful, lovely, keeper!

    cognition.SB: You got my vote! The wave pattern flattens out the pic somewhat, but the creature, while not the most out-there design, rules! Yes, this is a creepy scenary to behold - imagine seing this from a helicopter! OH SH...!!! Awesome pic!

    njoo got my vote: Adore the design. Seems very believable (in a fantasy kinda way) and I love that it blends in with the environment.

    Tyranx, Jakkas - Great pieces as always.
    Tyranx, your piece reminds me of some of Sparth's landscapes with all the blank space.

    Cool stuff also Lodin, Fozzy, xgabo, Vegasmike, BlkCelebration.

    Cloister - your rendering's getting better. Just one thing that bugs me is the studio-type lighting on the iceberg. Looks like you've got a big tungsten set up left of the image, because the side away from the sun is fully lit.

    Anyway, thanks for the comments wizo, dragon, and cheers for the vote! Thanks for the crit, too... I'll try and make the waves fade out or something.

    apparently my image host was having problems before, but it seems to be back. Let me know if any of you have problems visualizing my image.

    Cheers
