ANU - Morning Sun by Sanrou ANU - Morning Sun by Sanrou

After the cold rainy nights of ANU, the sight of the sun is a blessing for its inhabitants. In the rocks of the lower regions of Tiamat Mountains, two Flamanaris walk along the muddy bottom of a temporary river that stop running a few minutes past, looking for a high spot to warm themselves in the sun.

A small pack of Blandopodas follow the pair, while a pack of hunters flying high above start their descending onto a unlucky prey.

This is amazing! I honestly can’t find the words to describe how awesome this is... 
The whole scene just looks so natural and believable, like a snapshot from a very real place... the effect is quite astounding!
I’m also really intrigued by the flying hunters as well as those little critters crawling up the rock... 
As always, I’m looking forward to seeing more from this wonderful world :D

The flying things and the little critters will be extensively explored soon, don't worry. (whole new phylum for the latter, may take a while Sweating a little... )
Gonna do a lot more scenes from now on, so keep tuned!

Fantastic, I can’t wait to learn more about them and see what other landscapes there are on ANU...
And don’t worry about it taking a while, there’s no rush :)

It's fun to see your creatures in an environment, it really makes them come alive.
what are the four button-like organs on the front and back?

I'll make a lot more from now on.   :D

It is a puffy membrane used for hearing, like external eardrums. All policapta have them, like these.
This one in particular have mimic spots on the back that look like the ears to confuse its predators.

Guess i'll sketch a basic guide for the policapta's anatomy next. lol

Yeah, I thought the ones in the back were fakes, because I've only seen them on the front of your other animals. I didn't know those were ears though, always kind of suspected they were eyes :D thanks for clearing that up. :)

On another note... what if somewhere out there are animals who can hear through their eyes? :D Like the two are connected and the liquid in the eye vibrates and the animal can detect those vibrations as sound?

That's... an interesting perspective. I've though something similar but not quite like this. Do a sketch with this in mind, would be nice to look at it. lol
