ALIEN-APES by KENBARTHELMEY ALIEN-APES by KENBARTHELMEY
I love to design creatures like this. These Alien-Apes climb with their stumps, which they also use as their arms.

An alien ape climbed to a small branch on its home tree. It broke off a stick and climbed down to its nest. It picked up a small chunk of wood and sharpend its stick. It looked around on neighboring branches, it finally spotted a small creature scurrying on a branch. It aimed its sharpend stick and threw. He hit it. He climbed over to the branch and took the stick away. It ate some of the meat of the creature and saved the rest for his clan. The bones were saved for later use. The aliens, have gained intelligence.

I know how to bring your fantasy creatures to "life".. 
Over half a century of exploring the mind's accesses and reaches, I've managed to catch a solid glimpse of all the science that's in human DNA's molecular memory, given to us from the mother Sun and Life..  It's a long complicated story..  Too long to detail here..  I found how to read what's stored in DNA's memory systems, by treating DNA's spirit like it's a loved pet...
In these thousands of technologies, I found ways to put life back into petroleum by creating new periodic charts of the elements and millions of new chemicals to make new living plastics with which we could grow and build anything you can imagine..  "engineered pets and cyborgs"..  plus "replacement organs and tissues to make us live to near 300"...  But the mindless science world and the mindless money world can't grasp any of it, so those who live in delusion, insanity, and hell, and under their moist swamp rocks, who cannot think, tell me it can't work, just like how humanity believed the world is flat..  All those mindless-monkeys know is eat, sleep, screw, play, kill, pray, and die..
If I ever get my lab funded, you amazing creative artisans will design humanity's "plastic fauna", and I'll make them all seem alive, but without teeth, fangs, and claws, though I do suspect I could incorporate the cerebral instinctive mind qualities of insects into these cyborg monsters, to have specific creations predate on specific creations, for humanity's entertainment..  It'll be a hit when humanity has extincted all the world's critters...

Your work, and that of your colleagues is like a breath of fresh clean air in a forest fire.. 
It's an honor and a pleasure viewing your work...

Very real-like, I was thinking what someone else said, they kind of remind me of something you'd find on Pandora in Avatar.

Beautiful design! From an evolutionary standpoint your alien-apes look like they could belong on Pandora. More plausable than the Navi really. Many of the Pandoran vertebrates had an extra set of eyes in the movie.

I love the EXTREME physiology of your creatures but at the same time they look natural, as if they actually could exist somewhere. That's a very difficult feat to achieve.
