Some biologists insist that, contrary to its common name, this creature in fact has three heads.

Recently I've been working on a 3rd-party level for Knytt Stories. The level needs interesting ambiance, so I've been drawing silly characters and creatures like this to populate it. (Knytt Stories is a freeware game by Nicklas Nygren published in 2007.) I'm not sure if this strange animal will be part of it, but I thought he was funny enough to share and that maybe I'd use him as an avatar.

Does anyone remember SimEarth? This reminds me of the "trichordates" that game featured.

@Adarias: Wow... I did not know that flag existed. It is, though, one of the coolest flags I've seen. Thanks for the reference!

@Jim Reed That's a funny cartoon. I'd not seen "Nogalo" before, but it's an interesting use of a similar idea.

I think if anything inspired this character it was Don Hertzfeldt's "Meaning of Life" cartoon. I didn't refer to it when making this creature, but that animation features many species of bizarre, multi-legged animals, and at least one of them rolls on its many feet.

Reminds me of the flag of the Isle of Man.  Should have an armored version as a tough guy :).

Cool animation!

I doubt that you plagiated a pretty obscure cartoon. I bet you just got the same idea. Anyway, take a look at the link, maybe it will help you to animate your threefeet character easier.

knytt needs interesting anything.  This sprite is pretty amusing to watch and nicely done.
