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.

Mother Nature feels serpentine-sloth, monster-face for peace!!! sort of protective. And... maybe aquatic-spider mad.

Fantastic....question....do you choose an environment and design the aliens to fit it...or come up with an alien and put a world around it?

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.

This reminds me of a certain species from the movie Avatar, but these creatures are much more detailed. The texture of their skin and of the background is superb and the creatures themselves are stunningly creative. Wow!
