I'm trying to buff up my collection of interesting alien species for ideas/inspiration for the setting I'm working on. I'll start off with posting what I've got.

Seems appropriate.

Any ideas for cool alternatives for eyes? It's pretty limited way of thinking to just assume everything uses eyeball to 'see'.

>> No.28383847


Sonar, some organ that feels electric fields (some real life animals use this), feelers... Or a species that depends mostly on smell and taste. Imagine a human ambassador having to deal with a fellow ambassador who has to constantly lick him.

There is/was this one site with meticulously detailed and illustrated wild creatures based on a completely alien ecosystem.

Each of the creatures had gigantic dongs, but this was awkwardly explained as some sensory organ. Literally, dongs everywhere.

Regardless, it was an amazingly detailed site. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

Google searches for aliens with giant penis-like appendages yields unsatisfactory results.

Somehow I find this hard to believe. SOMEONE is satisfied by those results.

Snaiad. Unfortunately the creator had to take down the site because he couldn't afford it anymore. His deviantart site has some pictures though.

Not in the slightest. It was Snaiad, as already mentioned.

Holy shit, that's exactly it. It's one of the best sources for pictures of aliens because everything forms an ecosystem of sorts. Plus, dongs.

I get what you're saying. They're so weird they don't make sense.

He did that on purpose. He wanted an ecosystem where everything looked alike but was completely different from Earth life. It's deliberate and it works really well but yeah you're totally right.

Also, in case you haven't read about it before, he made the whole ecosystem run on IR sight pads so none of them have eyes. They also usually do the spider digestion thing (injecting acid and sucking out the juice) for predation primarily so things look weirder.

Cool thread!

I too am developing a sci-fi series with a similar aesthetic. Actually, a little too similar. Maybe I need to redo some designs because some of these are kinda close to my stuff. I guess whoever made some of this art had similar ideas to mine.

Would you post your setting idea?
