    concept:

    Along the cliffs of Nasturno, a region seemingly bereft of life, exists the helio-plankton "Armisthriosia". Little more than a helium filled mucous sac of chlorophyl, the Armisthriosia is the basis for the entire food chain. In Nasturno the only other species, known to science, is the "Tenuis oracado". More commonly known as the Slimy cliff jumper.
    In it's larvael form the Oracado launches itself from ledges through a sort of jet nozzle. It uses this method of "jumping" to reach the floating Helioplankton blobs.
    Unique in nature the Slimy Cliff Jumper, in adult form, subsists entirely on it's larvea. The Oracado is a cannibal. No one is quite sure how this came to be, but it does guarantee that the species can never become too successful. Each generation eating the next.

    concept:

    COMMON NAMES:
    Slimy Cliff Jumper/Mountain MudPuppy/Arjaniann Mountain Frog.
    Family
    PROTEIDAE
    Scientific name:
    Necturus Slijmerig
    SPECIES INFO: The Arjanian Mountain Frog is a rare amphibian situated near the top of the `endangered: most at risk` list. Found only in one small mountain range this species is on the brink of extinction. Being an amphibian the `Mountain MudPuppy` as it is sometimes know needs access to water on a daily basis and suffers huge population casualties in extreme dry spells. Its water source is usually small puddles that collect in crevices and cracks high up on rugged cliff faces. As water is so scarce at these higher altitudes the Species has evolved a way to produce its eggs in a water filled sac which it attaches to the cliff faces. The male, unusually for amphibians, stays with the egg sac until the worm like tadpoles emerge. These tadpoles secrete a slime that allows them to stick to the cliff face and they slowly radiate out from the parents location until they find a bare patch of cliff within reach of a water source to set up home.
    The adult feeding method is unique. They attach themselves to the cliff face with their large, suckered rear feet. Here they sit and wait for passing birds or flying insects which they lunge at as they pass by. Their large feet, firmly anchored to the rock prevent them from falling with their prey in their mouth.

    artist: Dark Musashi
    concept:

    Slimy Cliff Jumpers, also called Sea Frogtopi, are evolved from octopi and are able to climb up rocky cliffs with their powerful tentacles. The slime prevents the skin from drying. Females lay eggs several times a year, the problem is that Jumpers eggs are fish's favorite food. That's why they climb up cliffs erected above the sea. Once eggs are laid off, males join them and fertilize the nests.
    To get back in the sea, it's much easier: they just jump off the edge, extending their membranous fins and tentacles to slow down the fall. Birds won't be able to eat the eggs because the slime left all around dry quickly, becoming a very powerful glue, animals stepping in the slime would never be able to get off.
    Little known fact: Slimy Cliff Jumpers climb the highest cliffs so that the waves won't reach the eggs: indeed, once back in water, the natural glue dissolves and makes them little slimier than your average frog. Contact with salty water would cancels the protective slime.

    Iguaslug
    Amphibious creatures that is able to breathe in land and water. In order to prevent from drying out by the hot morning sun, these creatures only comes out in the night. They climb up the steep cliffs by the coast to the only place that they can feed. As they are slow creatures, they take half the night to reach the destination. The slime on their body can only last them 15hrs before drying out. They feed the whole night until morning before the sun rises. When the day breaks, they will jump off the cliffs back to the sea to rest and to replace their body fluids to generate their slime.

    concept:
    Kriechgen GE-BO 0019-04
    The kriechgen can be found in deserts with a mountainous terrain. They have a thin layer of slime that covers most of their body. The slime helps control the kriechgen's body temperature, as the animal is cold-blooded the slime absorbs heat when in the light and preserves it while in the cold. The slime also acts as a natural camouflage while the kriechgen attacks its prey. As most of its prey see through thermo-receptors, the slime mimics the surrounding temperature to hide itself while attacking. The kriechgen mostly live cliffside where they watch for their prey, consisting mostly of smaller flying reptiles, and when spotted, the kriechgen jumps off the cliff towards the animal. While airborne the kriechgen's wings, while usually covered in a chittinous shell, spread out so that the kriechgen can glide to its intended prey.

    concept:

    The Bering Sea Cliff Jumper is a carnivorous creature found only on the most remote cliff areas in the Bering Sea island chain. It is essentiallyl the missing link between the mollusk and land-dwelling animals. It has the ability to hunt in the frigid waters below, or attack sea bird nests high in the bluffs overlooking the ocean. It is able to survive on land because of the high humidity level in the air. It usually sleeps in the sea caves that dot the shore. The shell that coats it's back is for defense, as there are large predatory birds that hunt Cliff Jumpers. The spikes on it's shell excrete a kind of nerve gas when the Cliff Jumper is threatened. It has two sets of eyes that are very sensitive to motion.The creature itself is very light, and can move and jump very swiftly across cliffs.

    Taar'ari
    On the planet Sarenbar we can meet lots of strange animals. One of them is Taar'ari, the big red bird. Because of some reason in the process of evolution creature lost its wings, but it has incredibly strong legs to jump on cliffs where it makes nests. The cliffs and giant rocks near them are safe places where predators can't get Taar'ari and its eggs. The feathers of this bird are covered by a slimy mucus which helps them to swim very fast (Taar'ari hunts in the sea for small fish), mucus also gives this animal a chance to get away from the jaws of predator. Everywhere on the planet where you can find cliffs you will meet Taar'ari, it is a very common creature.

    concept:

    The cliff jumper is an odd little bird, coated with a fine layer of slime (which is their unique sort of sweat). They live and hunt their entire life around one specific area, the place where they hatched.
    The slime acts as a lubricant when it's hunting or being hunted. In other words this little bird is a slippery bugger!

    this guy is tiny, say about 2 inches max, and uses the slime that is produced on it's "hands" and feet to cling to cliffs tween it's jumps. the slime is also a kind of defensive mechanism, 'cause it's not only icky in general to encounter, but it also tastes lousy.

    Atlas Spider
    The Atlas Spider is a gargantuan, insectile beast that lives in dusty canyons. Because of its uneven legs, it it uncomfortable walking and travels the canyons in great jumps. It secretes a nourishing mucus that lubricates its joints and sustains it during dry spells. The sludge left behind as it leaps from crag to crag hardens, toughening so much that it becomes part of the rock, driving the peaks higher and higher. Some of the creatures live so long that their edifices pierce the clouds and seem to hold up the sky, giving the species its name.

    Juu'Hooo
    These strange animals lives on the Sho'to Island. They have their lairs on the rocky cliffs near the Mashu-ka Bay. Every year when the mating time comes they climbe to cliffs to show to females their gliding skills. Juu'hooos jump from the cliff and quickly falls down. In the last moment, when they are close to the ground open their "skin coat" and fly into the sky again. Of course cliffs' rocks are full of skeletons of the Juu'hooos which were trying to be too brave. Juu'hooos have very interesting diet, because they eats sea plants, fishes and... some of the birds that nest on the cliffs.

    concept:
    Chippa
    A creature whose favorite pastime is to jump from cliff to cliff, searching for their one true love. It is most unfortunate for these creatures, for a single male is born once every fifty years. The females have a general life span of twenty years, so they can be quite agitated by age twelve. Their entire bodies are covered from head to two in an "attractive" slime. The slimiest female has a better chance of winning the male's affections - that is if they find one another. They would probably be considered one of the most agile transportation beasts if they weren't so...sticky.

    this little critter was made for jumping off of cliffs. he enjoys long romantic walks on the beach, candle lit dinners, and most of all jumping off of cliffs.
    his double ears give him excellent hearing, his tail helps for landing balance, the head frills help in guiding direction in the air, he has long flaps of skin under his arms, which he spreads when he is at his highest point in the jump.

    concept:
    The Tridoon
    This frog-like creature lives on cliffs in tropical regions. Since it is cold-blooded, it lays most of the day warming in the sun high up on the cliffs. It is most famous however for its way of fishing: it jumps off the top of a cliff, paddles through the air with its webbed claws to gain more distance, then it folds up its body (much like pelikans do) to reduce the force of impact when it plunges into the ocean amidst a shoal of fish. With its long yaw lined with many pointy teeth it has little trouble to kill and hold on to its prey. With its strong limbs it swims back to climb on the cliff again to devour its prey.
    The slime that covers its body helps to isolate against the cold of the oceanwaters and also helps reduce the drag while swimming. It is slightly poisonous. The Tridoon has little natural enemies other than sharks.

    artist: Michael Jaecks
    concept:
    The Offigrun
    Planet Boolix has some of the most dramatic and uneven topography of any planet yet encountered. Impossible bridges of stone, towering spires of rock, yawning canyons pockmark its face. The planet's terrain is so uneven locally that 80% of the animal life is avian or aerial in some fashion. The other 20% of land-bound creatures have evolved very curious adaptations geared toward catching a flying target.
    The offigrun is one such animal, frog-like and carnivorous. Four extra ribs extend from the spine upwards from its body. Between them, the offigrun suspends a viscous, slimy web of saliva, generated by its long prehensile tongue. From cliff to cliff and spire to spire, the offigrun jumps,, catching birds, bugs and other airborne prey in the strong, sticky net. After lunch is caught, the offigrun comes to rest on a ledge and plucks the quarry off the web with its long, sticky tongue.

    bummer, that you didn't bring the rest of the image on the level of the upper body...

    3one
    Well, that was a hard decision now...i like the style and technique...but at the end there were too many things which summed up in a rejection. Like the humanoid look, the missing slimy appearance, the stripes on the shoulder parts which remind me of clothes or fabric....i think with only 1 of these "glitches" the entry would have been accepted, but the sum of them makes it difficult. Nevertheless nice art

    Some areas look very sloppy, but well, you keep improving and trying hard i think, so there ya go

    I sort of lost inspiration and stopped working on it halfway through Fozz lol Kind of wished I'd finished it though, if anything for practice.

    Voted for MissA as I love the concept, and the fact that his legs are much like that of a grasshopper / cricket, which are the essence of jumping.

    Other votes would have gone to hammajamma & Michael Jaecks for an awesome concepts.~

    Thanks Fozzy! Note to self: give up on drawing backgrounds next time
    My vote goes to Southern, his creature is well done, with a realistic design and a use of textures that makes me jealous. Also, there's the "slime" factor that may not be so obvious in other entries that may have gotten my vote otherwise.

    It's who you want me to be... or not.

    I ended up going for Miss A's creature. I can almost see that one leaping from the end of the cliff into thin air.

    I like Hurricanes slimy bird and Bear JR's as second and third. All in all a cool set of images folks.

    And it's good to see you back Fozzy. Running a forum area can be harder than people think. A few weeks is easy but doing it week in, week out, even when it's a subject you love can be testing.

    Went for JakkaS in the voting. Always very original, strong creature design and concepting. The shape of the head took me completely by surprise. I could see him on Dagobah.

    Thanks for all the votes and positive comments so far, guys! I'm glad the concept is working for ya.

    Fozz: Okay, you busted me (partially.)... I'd say up to day two of your absence was a "where the fu@#%^& is the poll." But after that is was genuine concern. Well, that and I was starting to get the shakes again. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, you know.

    But such nice things you say about my entry this round. Thank you! Come what may, I will take what I learned doing this round to the Razor Fly. Thanks again for the kind words.

    Fozzy:

    will do so in the future..setting up a new website at the moment. Anyhow, I think I'm a long way off from winning this..too many real good entries here


    heck, Southern went and did what my piece was supposed to look like, mostly. He also got my vote.

    I'm drawing a blankin my sketchbook, that is

    Ye-ha! I actually completed my site.Check it out

    SOUTHERN: I feel yours was the most outstanding! I was looking in the topic where you all were creating these and yours was the only one that appealled to me. Others have done great jobs, but only yours is very much believable. The research and thought put into it is amazing. The masses have spoken and with over 30% of votes I see it as a near clear winner. Michael and Jakkas are close runners up too and it is clear why! To me you three were definatly in a totally different class that the others, thats not to say they made great works too, but this is just my opinion and my feeling. I look forward to other works by you three guys.

    michael jaecks gets my vote. great concept and execution.

    Jakkas entry looks very nice but I can't really see any of the slime element visually.

    Southern very nice as well but I found the flat profile view just a bit limiting to its potential.

    Miss A looks great!

    For me it came down to JakkaS and Miss A. Ultimately I gave the new-comer my vote. Cool creature - don't know if it needed those fore limbs though, it makes it look intelligent to a point of - tool building.

    My vote goes to SOUTHERN, but I've listed out my top favorites:

    SOUTHERN: I'm a sucker for reptile/amphibian critters, and I just couldn't help myself. The eyes did it.

    mike yamada: really reminded me of a rhamphorynchoid from the pterosaur book I have. Cool though!

    BEAR JR: Freaky concept!

    yoitisi: again...really close here - love the reptile/amphibian thing!

    Michael Jaecks: Wouldn't want to meet up with THAT critter.

    Miss A all the way, though Hammajamma and MichaelJaecks are extremely close seconds. Love the concepts on all three, and Hammajamma, I like the way you composed your piece, though I think the larva in the foreground gets in the way of your adult creature; also would have liked to see the webbing on its appendages more translucent. Michael Jaecks, love your style and the creature is just awesome (really diggin the spiderweb saliva. Finally went with Miss A because I love the way the creature is posed; it seems to have heard something sneaking up on it, and is turning around for a look.

    And thanks Nuru and Frostdrake for the comments/votes!
