    Tingifissi
    Piscis Piscis Puteo Celer
    The Tingifissi is a creature that is very rarely seen. Very little is known about this beautiful yet mysterious sea animal. It is believed that it is one of the fastest creatures in the sea, though there are no definitive records to prove it. Marine biologists suspect that the Tingifissi uses an almost jet like propulsion system to achieve these high speeds. They also believe the creature uses it's huge dorsal fin mostly for stabilizing purposes. The Tingifissi's habitat is near the carribean, and it is believed the creature has a preference for clear water. On very rare occasions the Tingifissi are spotted skidding across the water, chasing eachother at breakneck speeds. From a distance they are often confused with jetski's. The world is waiting until one of this magnificient beasts can be more thoroughly studied.

    concept:

    In 1537, a young monk named Zhang Feng went on sabbatical in a remote Chinese mountain range. On his third day there, the thought he spotted a creature gliding amongst the mountain tops without the help of wings. Confused at what he saw, Zhang returned to his meditation to clear his mind. But when he opened his eyes again, the strange beast was still there! Upon returning to his monastary, he told everyone of the encounter. Laughed at and critisized for making up stories of dragons he was eventually forced out of the temple and lived the rest of his days in exile. The story of this animal was never spoken again.
    But in the 1980's a group of explorers on an expedition deep into the same mountains rediscovered this strange gliding creature. Due to its docile demeanor, they managed to capture one quite easily for testing. A quick visual inspection revealed the strange underside of this animal. Covered with fleshy nodules, each with a small iron pellet, its function eluded them until they brought it to the laborotory. As scientists examined its physiology, they discovered that it could carry an electrical charge and had the ability to control each charge to induvidual iron pellets. It was noted that the beast was able to levitate over any object that contained enough iron ore. The metre long creature appeared to use these mag-lev abilities to glide over the iron rich mountaintops! By calculating its size and amount of magnetic charge it could produce, they theorized that the animal could reach speads of 150km/h with ease though it has yet to be documented. While trying to come up with a name, they came across an old tale about a monk who went up to live in the mountains with the dragons, and it was decided to name it Zhang's Dragon in his memory.

    Incendia Voro
    When astronauts landed on a perviously unknown moon of the planet Mercury what they found astounded them. An oxygen rich atmostsphere supported a wide range of creatures even in the killer heat from the sun and the large amount of volcanic activity on the moon. None of these creatures however were quite as suprising as the these two.
    Swimming in super heated flows of lava the 'fire fish' so named by the astronaut who first obseved them swimming and leaping out of the lava at speeds in excess of 70mph. It was awhile before they realised that the large formation of rocks near the flow was indeed alive. For it had no obvious extremities and stayed perfectly still until one of the 'fire fish' touched its massive jaws. When this happened it slammed them shut with lightening speed resulting in a shower of spark-like scales. This creature was later referred too as Incendia Voro or Fire Eater by the scientists back on Earth.

    concept:
    Cthonisaurs
    Cthonisaurs are beasts that guard the edge of the underworld. Having no legs or wings, they fashion large sphere shaped wheels from earth, dead vegetation, animal remains and their own waste. Combined with catalyzing secretions from their fleshy, shaggy bodies, the mixture forms a hardened shell tough enough to travel over the most inhospitable terrain. Hundreds of powerful micro-muscles along their slug-like abdomens drive and steer their wheel at tremendous speeds. It is thought the Cthonisaurs orginate from the river Styx itself, finding life on land, even in the land of the dead, more agreeable than in those foul waters. Some scholars say the Cthonisaurs torment Sisyphus, the legendary inhabitant of Hades condemned to push a rock up a hill, never succeeding. Cthonisaurs race each other up and down his hill with ease, chiding him with their wraith like screams

    concept:

    This insect is called a "Glokker". It uses a special type of fuel which is actually a mix of different rare substance to propulse itself foward. Its called a Glokker because of the fuel it generates inside its complex metabolism called Glok. This substance has the very special particularity of having a volumetric mass 10 times less than ordinary water with makes it light and easy for the insect to carry. Glokkers have 4 propulsers and 1 tube shaped mouth to drink liquids which are difficult of acces. The Glokkers are about as big as the tip of my finger and can reach speeds up to 80 mph which is pretty fast for its size.

    you know it's near when the following song pops into your head followed by a quirky 'boom' after it passes.
    Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
    My, oh my what a wonderful day!
    Plenty of sunshine heading my way

    thus, it is called the zip-a-dee-doo-dah creature.

    Moxie
    The Moxie is an amphibian who lives in the swamplands and feeds off small bugs. Roughly the size of a lemon, he is composed of very lightly structured organs and bones. His internal system breaks down H2O into Helium, and stores it in a sac, which expands his lower torso. Moxies float while filled with Helium, awaiting small bugs, and with speed undetectible to the human eye, they strick by rapidly releasing their Helium from their rear oraphus, igniting the helium, and propelling their bodies forward to attack their prey.

    Eir Elaia
    The Eir Elaia – Jumping Whale – was last sighted in modern Afghanistan 1240 A.D. By far the biggest of the known whales, the Eir Elaia has a long eel-like shape and hair-like growths on parts of its gigantic body. It lives in the deepest areas of the oceans but like all mammals it is dependant on the breathing of air. Also, this species has the ability to travel fast over vast masses of land. It cannot survive more than a day or two out of the water, but by wriggling itself powerfully it is able to “jump” enormous distances in a very short time. Traces, or “footprints”, of these giants have been found about everywhere across our globe, but the most recent of these valley-shaped sites is deemed to have been shaped over 750 years old. Exactly why the whales chose to occasionally leave the water remains a mystery. Scientific theories suggest that when stranded the whales began to struggle (jump), but had very little control over which way they went.

    The "Dart" (Retrykagalium Kraeighttouk)
    The Dart, an insectoid, slingshots itself to incredible speeds,
    pierces its host, then gorges on blood much like a
    mosquito. When finished, it releases from the host and hibernates
    in in the earth in a chrysallis until its next meal (mammalia).
    The single "dart like" body is ostensibly rigid, allowing it to
    missile through the air. In order to gain the tension
    required to project, its lightweight arms, and 'rubber'
    tendrils, act elastically. It also has amazingly tough hairs
    on the under side of its chest which tractor the Dart
    backwards until the stretch is great enough to propel it
    to the required target. The eyes are protected with
    scale like membranes as they are intrinsic to it finding
    its target and next meal.

    concept:
    Flip Flop
    These simple creatures live in shallow water feeding off algae. They're completely harmless, but their sole advantage over predators is an incredible speed mechanism. Their body is segmented and their elasticity allows hasty propogation through the water by expanding and contracting their mouth. Where usually they would swim forwards with the aid of their tail, this sends them plummeting backwards, which is the only disadvantage of this asset.

    The Daffodile - "Fauna of Scholar Frass"
    "The Daffodile (commonly nicknamed Sawyer Snatcher or Huckleberry Hunter) is, by many, believed to be the missing link between daffodils and crocodiles. It is, however, a fierce predator like it's reptilian cousin, and nothing at all like the peaceful daffodils we all like to pick and put in vases. (Some scientists still claim that they can't be related, since it would look ridiculous to put a crocodile in a vase.)
    Daffodiles have their natural habitat in the woods of southern U.S.A, where they literary feed on anything that come in their path. With a highly sensetive root-system, even the slightest touch could trigger its amazing reflexes - the daffodile plunges itself upon an unexpecting prey with its spring-like body, much like a Jack-in-the-box. Not surprisingly, the whole process is incredibly fast, and usually the creature doesn't know what it just devoured.
    It has been debated for ages whether or not a daffodile actually ate Huckleberry Finn or Tom Sawyer. American novelist Mark Twain is known to have said: 'If I hear one more word about a Sawyer Snatcher, I might as well drop dead.' Strangely enough he did, some twenty years later."

    concept:

    Living in the vast jungles of South-America, the Yellow Limbless Swingtale-Ape or in common tongue "El Dorado", is a very pecular creature. Having the colour it has, it has no chance what so ever nót to get noticed, hanging from trees or rigs in the overall green jungle. Scientist think that's why it has developed a swinging system, powered by the long flexible ears and tail, the El Dorado swings from tree to tree with an incredible speed.
    The tribes that have been dwelling there since the tides of the Conquistadores tell tales in honour of the El Dorado. They say that these soldiers where startled and confused by the gold they saw moving through the rain forest at high speeds. Their hunger for the precious metal was making them mad already, but a group of swinging El Dorado's surrounding a regiment of these Conquistadores made them loose it totally!
    Many a soldier came back from the jungle, filled with madness!

    concept:
    Cloud Rocket
    Planet eE-3441, commonly known as Brontos, is a gas giant roughly the size of Saturn, with an atmospheric composition that, remarkably, supports a wide variety of organisms. While the vast majority of these creatures are floating and drifting "air plankton," a number of species with quite advanced means of movement have evolved. Chief among these is the Cloud Rocket, a marvel of evolutionary engineering. It is the only known organism of its size to possess a chemical propulsion system. Several miles below the sunny layer where life is abundant, there is a perpetually cloudy layer, filled with complex molecules which the Cloud Rocket "inhales" into a multi-chambered fuel cavity that takes up sixty percent of its volume. The molecules are filtered through the various chambers and undergo a series of chemical reactions. Scientists know little of this, for their only specimens were badly damaged and poorly preserved, but the end result is obvious: ignition and propulsion. The Cloud Rocket then rides this chemical fire up to higher, life-rich layers of the atmosphere, where it feeds. The life of a Cloud Rocket is an ever-swinging pendulum of gravity-assisted dives into deeper atmospheric strata to collect fuel, followed by speedy ascensions into upper layers to feed. It never rests.
    Besides its spectacular propulsion system, the Cloud Rocket has a number of remarkable adaptations for its extreme lifestyle. Though thirty feet long and seven feet in diameter at its broadest point, it would way less than a quarter ton in Earth's gravity. This is due partly to its extremely light, yet strong, skeletal structure, as well as the fact that a great deal of its volume is taken up by gaseous fuel molecules. Its head is broad and flat to streer upwards and downwards, and two vertical fins enable it to steer from side to side. Because the Cloud Rocket feeds while moving at over two hundred miles per hour, it has an extremely fast reaction time, able to open and shut its mouth in less than the blink of an eye to snap up a morsel without affecting its aerodynamics. The back of the creature's mouth cavity is padded and reinforced to withstand the impact of prey entering the mouth at over two hundred miles per hour.
    The Cloud Rocket is the top predator on Brontos. No known creature preys upon it. The only known killer of Cloud Rockets is lightning, which can disrupt and ignite the fuel within its body. For this reason, Cloud Rockets, like sharks, have a highly-tuned electrical sense, to avoid lightning.

    This ancient greater würm spend nearly half of it's existence lying dormant beneath the dense forests of the world's northernmost regions. For centuries it fluctuates between a completely stagnant hibernation period and months of frenzied devouring of the land. As it lays dormant, it continues to feed the soil with nutrients from it's corroding flesh until it makes it's ascent to cannibalize on the land it's body helped nurture. In it's frenzied state it plunges through the ground and into the skies at a terrifying speed, leaving earthquakes and miles of shattered earth in it's wake.

    The Spirit in the Baobab Tree
    It was early morning in the desert as the young man kneeled in front of the tribe's Sacred Tree. His head was heavy, but he bravely resisted the urge to sleep right there, between the dry sinuous roots. "almost over", he thought in his stupor. "Soon, the warriors of the tribe will come and take me as one of them."
    Grandfather Baobab had been kind with him, not taking his soul last night. The day before, he had been beaten, dragged in the gravel, and forced to drink goat's blood mixed with roots that made him see monsters; but spending the night under the tree's shade was the scariest part of the ordeal. All young men knew the story. To be a man, they would have to be approved by the Baobab, or else be killed right there and dragged into the underworld, never to be seen again.
    As the sun drew a golden sliver of light across the horizon, he felt his heart beat fast in anticipation. The heat rising from the sand made him see ghosts; the images of his ancestors silently telling him how proud they were. He could barely contain the excitement as the hour drew near. It seemed like his chest could explode. And then it did.
    Still not entirely awake, he looked at the bloody hole were his heart should be, and lagged a second to realize he was already dead. A chilling hiss, and a thousand bony scales like knifes scratching the tree bark were the last sounds he heard as he entered the darkness.

    Size: as big as an average shrimp
    Covered by a blue scale, they have a leviathan look. Their tail have strong and flexible muscles which allows them to spin up and launch them at an incredible speed. (the only way to move around for this creature)
    While moving they can only slightly change their direction with their small fins. The sharp head can hurt if you get stabbed, so watch out.
    Interesting fact: Even though they taste better than normal shrimps, people like to keep them home as pets. It's fun watching them moving around.

    This creature glides across the sands of the tornado ridden landscapes it inhabits. It has a sleak head which acts as a giant sail to cut through the sand at firghtening speed. The three fins below it act as its rudders, smoothly adjusting their angle to wind two and fro, or digging in hard and making 90 degree turns on the spot. Its long lashing tail helps in its turning momentum. It also has vents at the front of its body, which allow air in, and it is then expelled with force from behind the creature give extra boost in motion. When it isnt moving, it lies in the sand, with the tip of its head fin out of the sand, and the spines on its back poking out, to sense the delicate changes in air temp and speed, before wriggling its way out as it catches the next current to soar swiftly with incredible speed across its desert!

The giant Whel'ike can be familiarised with the much smaller snails of our planet Earth. These giants snakes can cover miles and miles of terrain within a few minutes due to numerous, large finger-like villi that move rapidly, acting as an efiicient means of transporting the large snail as well as a way in which the Whel'ike obtains its nutrients, with each villus absorbing water and minerals from the soil through facilitated diffusion.

    I voted for Supervlieg, without hesitation. If a piece draws a sigh of longing out of me, then it pretty much gets my vote.
    I'll C&C later.

    ScaryPotato - Nice entry, a bit more shading could have unflattened it a bit.

    kovah - Pretty nice start, but could use a bit more start. Try painting in those highlights instead of using the burn tool. Painting gives you more control.

    Michael Jaecks - Lovely concept and execution. Still a bit too cluttered imo. Try darkening and softening the parts that are not the center of attention a bit more. And maybe add bigger shadow area's to the creature. Keep on growing!

    wizo5454 - Nice and weird creature. Maybe a the large amount of white makes him a bit flat.

    redehlert - I like the funny concept, the perspective is a bit weird though.

    Woodlandwalker - Good concept. The top round could use a bit more convincing shadowing to show the mass/form.

    Joey-b - Good concept and nice execution with the little explanation. I kinda like the little more dirty version you had before. Looks like this one is a bit tightened up a tad too much, and it loses some flow because of it.

    Vampire Ninja - Too bad you had two images, they would make a nice presentation in one pic. Anyway, I saw your main pic and liked it a lot. Maybe it could have been a bit tighter rendered.

    Cloister - Lovely sense of scale, you are growing and growing every week, and I like to see your progress. The perspective on the creature is still a bit off, especially for such a large scale animal. Perspective plays a large part in convincing in scale. Especially if the whole animal is viewed in a single piece. Keep it up though.

    draw - Nice and simple design. the origin of it's speed isnt immediatly obvious from its design though. And maybe it could have done with some sharp highlight on the body part.

    cognition.sb - Lovely highlights. The design is a bit simple for my taste though, but the execution is well done.

    Einen - I like the cartoony route you took with this piece. It could be a bit more interesting if you vary the colors a bit more. More variaty in the greens would have gone a long way.

    Durin/Piru - Anus alert! Hehe. Funny concept. The shadow is a bit too black, maybe try a more brownish shadow next time.

    Moai - Great progress coming from you every week. I loved the thumbs, and the work you put in before really shines through in the final piece. Try digging into the details a bit more and sharpen those parts you want to draw attention to.

    Puck - Nice concept, but its almost like he got legs. But nevermind that. The background is a bit underdeveloped and distracts a bit.

    jfwalls - Good background. The creature itseld doenst look very fast. It would have been nice if the skin had a bit of the light in the background shining through.

    strych9ine - Nice concept, doesnt really seem to fit the theme imo. Its more ghost like then a fast creature. Great rendering style though.

    xgabo - Good concept and execution. The background story is also really good. Love the highlights. The blood is too saturated though. Got my vote.

    KaWaii - Good concept and rendering. Keep on improving!

    Hammywammy - Nice rendering on the creature. The trail doesnt really convey depth though. Maybe the space behind the creature is a bit flat and could use a bit more color variation.

    Tom Garden - Good creature but a bit hard to read. I loved the desert background you did in on of the smaller versions. Too bad it wasnt in this one, cuz it looked really nice.

    BlkCelebration - Nice creature. I would have been nice if it had a bit more flow to it. It looks a bit stiff. The water effect works quite well though. The light area to the bottom left looks a bit out of place.

    Lodin - Nice one and good concept. A bit like Kawaii's piece concept wise. The guinea pig is very funny.

    amer-nazri - Like that style, very story book like. Its a bit hard to read depth because of the lack of shadows.

    xgabo got my vote, which I knew the first time I saw the picture. I really love the idea and design of that creature, as well as the fact that it makes you believe it was too fast for the camera. Good price!

    And thanks for the crit, Supervlieg. I'm a Photoshop novice in every sense of the word, and appreciate every tip I get.

    Hmmm... This was a tough one. A lot of similarities between entries. While it's not the best rendering, I sent my vote to Woodlandwaker for a great concept. Nice way to approach the brief.

    Cheers for the votes/comments/crits! On to the next round!

    I voted for Ameri-nazri because, well, I just liked it. It was different from what most people had posted.
