Are they drinking nectar or water out of the plants? I would love to have one of these as a pet.

Wonderful! One of the most real and organic looking creature designs I've ever seen. Love the setting as well, the whole thing has a brilliant wildlife photography feel to it.

Wow, love how this suggests an entire ecosystem by showing the little blue alien creatures feeding on the cup-shaped "flowers"- this shows a lot more about the creatures than just showing the posed alone. :) Nice work!

intriguing- I like that you've not only come up with alien flora, but you've drawn an ecological connection between that and the animal, in that the animal is an analog to earth's nectar-drinking fauna.

I was thinking that they were some kind of animal that used small photosynthetic organisms in their tissues to make food and sustain themselves kinda like chorals on earth. unlike choral they can move around slowly. I thought it would be interesting if the whole ecosystem was supported by these kind of animals.

That sounds like a very good idea; I'd love to see more to this effect.
Your piece is lovely: the bright colours, the figure forms, the depth… This is a great concept!

I love this alien and its environment! You should develop this further. It could be a whole ecosystem like Epona or Darwin IV.

I've seen alien planet and Darwin IV but I've never heard of Epona. Whats that?

Lee-Sherman Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2012
Now that I'm looking it up, it seems the Epona Project has kind of collapsed, which makes sense because I haven't heard anything about it since the '90s and I kind of remember their website going dead now that I think about it. Anyway it was a world-building project that was allegedly very ambitious and involved a huge number of scientists, artists, and writers, but unfortunately never spawned any books or videos. It was briefly covered in Natural History of an Alien which has also never come out on video/D.V.D./download/streaming.

Here's the new Epona website: [link]
