Girantis
Giraffe, Angler fish and Mantis.

Study records from the International Biology Institute:

After introducing the Girantis to the African plains, it has in a short few years become a common sight on the savannah. Its lifecycle is relatively long given its size and has adapted to its environment surprisingly well. The Girantis feeds primarily on insects and uses its long tongue, rather than its claws to grasp its prey. It possesses bacteria capable of producing bio-luminescence. Mostly active at night, this is used to its advantage to attract the insects. The claws and light patterns are put into use when fighting for territory against another male. Each male tries to make its claws seem larger than its opponent and their light glands flicker to seem threatening. As opposed to its frontal legs and claws, its four hind legs are composed of only two joints. Some sources say this may be an indication that they were evolved at a later state, or that the frontal legs once worked as claws. Even more surprisingly, in contrast to it's biological makeup; recent studies have shown it to have a genetic makeup closely resembling that of a chameleon. The institute has yet to come up with a feasible conclusion to this. More research is required.

Should have uploaded this before, but I was waiting for my computer to return from the repear shop. Sadly, it came back as a separate disc and 3 dvd's, so I'll just do this now. Chimera competition on Pixelation. I suspect there might be transparancy issues for explorer users. If this is the case, just give the word and I'll fix that.

Ah well. Enjoy.

Its an amazing piece, but its palette is especially appealing to me. I hope one day to make a palette this good, but in the mean time, I'm going to study this piece of art.

tanuki (Level 1 Seaman) @ 1/3/2012 19:18

I noticed this a really long time ago but never said anything since I don't think the artist has been here in years, but I just thought I'd go ahead and point out that there's a missed transparent pixel at the base of the horn (called a ossicone, apparently).


user

 What the hell, dude! That's freaking awesome! It's like a chimaera you would see in that anime Full Metal Alchemist. The colors are perfectly made. Loved the claws. It reminds me of a creature in Half Life 2.
