Ok, I have finally decided to go back to my old art and fix them all up on the computer.
I haven't done/posted anything in such a long time *head desk*
Oh well, here is my Amphlora (not done, obviously). I'm starting to add folds and frills, so any critique on that is welcome
And, of course, comments and critiques in general are also welcome :D
Here is a little information on the species:
Surface Amphlorae are extremely friendly creatures. They, as their name suggests, live very close to the surface of the water because of their fairly odd breathing habits. Since they do not have gills, (and they are mammals) they must breath air by 'regurgitating' their lung, which then float on the surface of the water. Long, thick cords then take the oxygen directly from the floating lungs to their body and blood stream. The lungs, while floating on the surface, resemble huge, gray pond flowers. You can usually find huge groups of them floating at the surface while the Amphlorae play in the seaweed below.
Due to the sudden growth in the dish 'Amphlora lungs' sauteed in a variety of sauces, they have been slowly disappearing from the oceans and seas. The humans, once they found a colony of Amphlorae, would take a giant 'harvester' and cut away their lungs, leaving the defenseless creatures unable to breathe. Then their lifeless bodies would sink lower and lower, most of them sinking to the deepest part of the ocean or sea that they're in. No one knows what happens to them, but scientists believe that they get eaten by their carnivorous counter-part, the Deep Water Amphlorae, or by the other numerous monstrosities that litter the ocean floor.
