I got the green light from Sciocont on this.

This challenge consists in thinking up and drawing a concept for a civilisation.

Every week, there will be a subject, you will have a week to come up with something to make the challenge going.

The aim of this is to bring up new ideas, concepts or even new questions about the project that haven't been answered.

If this starts to slow down progress, then this topic will have to be blocked.

So let's begin.

The first subject would be to come up with your idea of a sentient species. It could be stuck on it's home planet/moon/world/whatever or it could be a free roamer of space.
The only restrictions would be that it respects the project's concepts and that it could be done in the OE as we know it.

Jumps to your pencils!

I'd challenge everyone to really push the boundaries of the OE on this.

For the moment yes, we dont know how many submissions we'll get. If there will be too many then we'll move it to separate thread.

For the sake of not spamming topics without need.

Im not familiar with this forums bumping policy. So, I assume that it is like many other forums I have been on, that a bump is allowed as long as the thread has not been dead for a month.

Mine - I'm shooting at the anti-civ we discussed earlier, but as of yet there's only a few elements.

I could go on, but yeah. Less textwall.

It would be nice if you people added some drawings, since this is an art section anyways =P. But, by all means, keep going =).

These are good. Although, caedemon, yours is a bit earth centered to my taste, but I like it.

Here's my concept (I lost my usb key so I can't get the drawing of my phone >_<)

Quoting your concept: "Humanoid life form" - and this is only the beggining. The report itself is okay, but the species themselves are too Earth-like.

I'm going to be putting mine up soon. I've done a few sketches of them in some chem notes, and i really like them. Here's an overview.

Vouaak

Vouaak are crustacean-like arthropods that live on a planet about .86 thimes the mass of earth, orbiting close around a reddwarf star. The average temperature there is about 60 degrees centigrade, and the planet is tilted just 7.6 degrees on its axis.
The vouaak's planet, Mag, has three moons, one of them is quite large and close to the planet, while another is more like earth's moon. The final moon is small and twice as far away as the second. The first moon does harbor life, however, the Vouaak do not know how advanced it is, or that it is even there, as they have yet to build large civilizations. The large moon creates gargantuan tides over the planet Mag, and bows the ground itself towards it slightly- only mountains are never smothered by the tide's waves. This results in a very unique ecosystem on many parts of Vouaak- Tidal Forests. Tidal forests are a mix of land-based and water-based organisms. Seaweed carpets the ground when dry, and giand corals fight for space above the ground with hearty mangrove-like trees. These forests are more biodiverse than the fullest rainforests on earth, and carpet about 1/5 of the planet's surface, while harboring 40 percent of its life.

Again, that was intentional. I did it to make a alien that seems...Less alien.

That was a bad example.

I've got no inspiration left- my focus for the next 59 days is this: http://flotdesign.ru/

For those who dont read russian, its a competittion for civil industrial designers to create a new design of a russian warship =). The prize money are pretty high, and I have no idea how good the other competitors are, so yea... this eats away 99% of my energy now that I am on vaccation.
