    Well, shoot... I thought conceptart is hosting images now. Guess not.

    PhoenixFeather and I are doing 1 hour sketch sessions now and made today's DSG the subject. This was inspired by a scientific vechicle called the Crab that surveys the near shore seabed.

    Pfah, a rather specific one again, I like the vague and short topiced ones more. I'll do just a simple pencil sketch then, ignoring a few parts of the topic.

    Phoenix Feather-That's because you gave it 6 legs, fur, no pincers, pointy mandibles. That's indeed closer to a flea then to a crab. Love the gas bladders though.

    CENOBITE-Looks menacing, nice smooth and kind of transparent surface on the bladder., love the touch of the little eyes, but what's that big black dot? Some sort of massive nuclei?

    the aer aequoreus pinophylax is of the decapod crustaceans group that started to their own branch 60 thousand years ago, and is commonly called the Tukan Air Crab; like all Air Crabs it has tree very expandable organs hidden under the shell that it can blow up with very hot air and thus lift like balloons into the sky. What sets apart the Tukan Air Crab from their other flying cousins is their evolved legs. Their flat very agile legs work like fins and besides being excellent swimmers they use them to paddle in the air, and control their air dives. Where their cousins and ancestors flew to travel and spread their eggs through the air, the Tukan Air Crab can also use their legs to dive for food, mostly fish and sea birds, but the rare rabbit & rat have been found during autopsy; but also for their mating ritual, where the males will do advanced air acrobatics to win his spouse.

    Thanks, yah... the darker spot is more of a thick part of the gas bladder that isn't flexible like the rest. I guess it also reminded me of a nuclei so I left it.

    The rocks look shite oh well. Very nice atmospheric pic CENOBITE. dan liimatta and goran great pics as well.

    Looking at my pic now just as i uploaded it i think some distant rocks in the background would look nice.

    CENOBITE: Love the pastel colours and the spindly legs skimming the water.

    Phoenix Feather: Nice to see you illustrating both stages. The hairy legs look cool.

    burrito: Nice design - particularly the head and trunk thing extending donw and under.

    dan liimatta: Very nice. The swarms in the distance is a cool idea and the clouds look great.

    goran: Lovin' thins. Great design and detail. The purple underbelly lighting works great with the green.

    Mitze: Love the membrain look and the sea.
