Creature Sheet for:


Moving colony boss creature concept for the Team Challenge event @ Conceptart.org. More on the team's thread:
TRAILER PARK STUDIOS

(This is a wip, I will be updating the image if the concept is not abandoned.)

Update: added two more holotypes to the party. Still more to go, I hope the concept starts to make some sense now that more holotypes are added!

this is so awesome! took me a bit to realize they combined to make the big one! I was sitting here reading going "where's the name of the scorpion one!?" and realized they were it!

How many more holotypes do you believe you'll add? Will there be more colony combinations besides the scorpion stereotype?

That is a amazing concept.
I wonder how the whole thing 'll work out.
I'd love to see more of these kind of guys in the future- not only on this art site, but maybe (who knows!) in a game or book franchise. Now ofcourse, the "living bodyparts" creatures already exist, but I haven't seen them so finely crafted as here.
...I think :3
Good work!

If this gets abandoned, you can count on a few people to be very disappointed. I cant wait to see the fully fleshed concept, and your art is always inspiring. Is this a collaborative idea or completely your own design?

Do they just bite down on each other to stay together, or is there a more complex (perhaps less painful) locking mechanism?
Reply
:iconalbino-z:
albino-Z Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
no, it's brutal, they feed off adjacent links and they partially impale\bite on them. More like bug vampires :F yuk...

I really like the entire concept, and if it means anything, I don't think it's too generic at all! :)
The controller and soldier types are my favorites :).

Holy shit... very nicely done!

However, I must say, I am not a huge fan of non-functional wings in creature designs. That being said, the rest of it as well as the whole concept of a colony of creatures that work together as one is really neat (kind of like the Portuguese Man-O-War).

do the individual parts mutate so they can fill their designed role?
Reply
:iconalbino-z:
albino-Z Featured By Owner Aug 5, 2012
yes, they are different types, but wings and legs atrophy according to position as well

Why does it have those tiny wings on its stinger?

the stinger is a separate unit as well, didn't have time to inform the sheet with all types yet :]

The fly controller is just awesome in that its cute and messed up at the same time.

My next fav bit would be that tail on the Colony unit. Are those meant to be individual creatures? They look like they could be the Bridging unit linked in series that could break away and do what they, ah, were supposed to do :p (yeah I went to the CA link but couldn't find substantial info...)

:iconalbino-z:
albino-Z Featured By Owner Aug 4, 2012
Kai! Yes! It is a group of individual giga-insects that are attached to each other in a vampiric -symbiotic like manner. The soldiers devour stuff and the following "links" drain fluids off them. The whole moving colony is controlled via the comparably small telepathic female that is buried into the "hub" unit. Legs, tail and sting are also individual insects "biting" or being bitten/impaled by other units. When the colony is hit, units can detach and fight on their own. We might abandon this concept due to the very stereotypical form.

Thank you so much for taking the time to check this out. It's an honor!

Thanks to you, I went to check out Human Centipede clips...

But yeah, it sounds good as a collective unit. And I agree with the scorpion shape being a bit too generic. Can't wait to see how it ends up. :)
