BLUE - Neobatrachia A by BenMauro BLUE - Neobatrachia A by BenMauro
This critter was sitting on my hard drive for a while, finally got around to rendering up the top view. Some sort of alien poison dart frog type creature that has the ability to glide from tree to tree, this guy is a bit smaller than the green variant and also has a thin membrane between his back wings to help glide/maneuver faster to evade predators. Will be doing a more elaborate rendering of the design soon posed on a branch or something so you can see it in a more dynamic view, or maybe a grey render to show the form a bit more clearly? Similar to other creatures in this world it sees its surroundings with some sort of sonar type pulse, the head is some advanced almost completely circular disc type form, almost like the big radar dishes you see on AWAC’s, so this little guy has a very clear picture of his surroundings from 360 degrees while it is in the air.

That is a great work! Congrats

Check out our artists Supercompetition
You can win a Cintiq 13HD (we just introduced this new prize because we are missing quality stuff like yours)

Also our next contest is to find a boardgame script that would use one of the competing characters.

Tell all your fellow artists about it :) 
Quite epic in my opinion though that might be my love of Poison Dart Frogs and Ray style body plans coming out as well as my interest in alien air adaptations.

What ever the reason I love this thing!
