Gandrills are robust, highly territorial, omnivores. Completely blind Gandrills rely on their highly sensitive sense of smell and the use of electro receptors, found on their lower jaw. Digging their snout into the ground they are able to pick up subtle vibrations of subterranean morsels. Then using their powerful forelimbs they can quickly and efficiently dig up their prey. Both males and females are equipped with two forearm barbs, while both sexes use them for defense males also use them for courtship. Their forearm bards can grow quite impressive in size. Being blind Gandrills communicate in a highly sophisticated mixture of pheromones and electro-fields.  Males will release a mixture of these to attract both male rivals and females. Females will pick a proper mate solely based on pheromones. As victor males release a specific scent.  Though defeated males and even younger males have been know to mimic these scents to trick females. In response, females completely cloak themselves, with pheromones, in order to pick the true victor. She will mate with him and raise the chick by herself. The black protuberance on this female’s underbelly is in fact a developing chick. She will birth a tiny embryo that will race to her nutrient glands, from where it will attach itself and feed. The chick will begin to produce a thick carapace where it will continue to develop and grow protected form the elements and predators or at least most. The Cacoill is a brood parasite. It is another blind communicator of scent and electo receptors. The Cacoill will render itself invisible to the Gandrill. It will then using its long ova receptor plant its clutch into the Brooding carapace of the Gandrill. There is chicks will develop, safely,  feeding on the Gandrill chick. Once fully developed the chicks will abandon their host. Though if the Gandrill realizes her brooding carapace has been compromised she is able to causes the shell to deteriorate, exposing the parasites to the elements destroying the brood. The developing Gandrill chick will then begin to develop another brooding carapace.

Dragon turtles are a common mythological creature found in Chinese Mythology. Used in Feng Shui, they bring forth success, strength, empowerment and stability. I decided to keep the overall Chinese core of the image and make them an embodiment of Yin and Yang.

The Crag worker and the Wanderer 
This is a concept i worked on for a too be announced project. This duo wander throughout the mountainous environment searching for spoils and treasures. The crag worker uses his wanderer as a mount and a living bulldozer.

I guess you could call this “speculative fan art” It reflects a change in the Anderson The Little Mermaid story. Say if the little mermaid did kill the prince and return to her mermaid form…Don’t get me wrong I love the original story but wanted to play with an alternate ending.

Just taking my pet Kaiju for a walk…

This is its terrestrial formation, with its tail tucked under its body. In the water it “unfolds” like a shrimp tail.

More concepts for the project I’ve been working on. These characters live in the same environment all cursed and deformed by their greed for red rubies.

The Kappa has to be one of my favorite Japanese Spirits. He has to be one of the cuter character designs I’ve done.

The large Titanustriped are deemed true tripeds, 2 forelimbs and a fused mono hind leg. These ambush hunters are powerful flyers with massive hunting grounds. The flock of Emerald fauxtripeds would be little more than a snack for the Titanustriped. Emerald fauxtripeds are considered “false tripeds” as their hind legs are only fused at the ankle. A membrane connects the legs, which aid in flight.

Blue and orange sky, not sure which I liked more. 

Lush hills appear throughout the arid planes, fairy mounds as they have been titled.  Minnie oasis’s, teaming with grasses and foliage. These hills are the byproduct of an Arid worm taking up occupancy. These massive subterranean dwellers become immobile and sedate once reaching maturity. Their bodies will secrete and enrich the parched soil around them giving nutrient and vital enzymes to budding flora.  In return the now revitalized flora will transfer energy back to the worm, their root systems linking to their hosts body. This symbiotic relationship also attracts wildlife to the fairy mounds further supplying an alternate and substantial food source to the worm and pollinators for the flora. Completely hidden only its mouth breaks the surface. Its proboscis will emulate the texture and color of the prevailing specie of flora around them. The planes are littered with these fairy mounds but large distances of territory separate them making these fairy mounds little islands of distinct mutations of the organisms. Whole familial generations have been linked to specific mounds. If the worm dies its body will continue to produce and nourish the wildlife and flora for years to come.

This Yin Fann breeding pair is taking roost on a newly formed fairy mound.  Here they will reap the benefits of an up and coming “neighborhood” and will raise their family as the mound begins to flourish.

I guess my ‘earthly religions beyond the milky way’ series has some legitimacy as Pope Francis said he would baptize alien races. So here is the pope of the future baptizing the kristraseen race under the Holy Catholic Church
