The category states, "Hollywood has speculated about the ocean's depths for years, but what do you personally think dwells beneath the surface of the earth? Be imaginative and show us what kind of fantastical idea you can come up with!"
We're going deep down under the Hadalpelagic zone, Hollywood style!
While in real life light cannot reach the deepest recesses of the ocean and species have no need for colorizarion, this doubletail fish, called Berapi-api, sports some fiery colors.
Tube worms are so last abyss. This new species, called Keras, sport strong, long, ribbed extensions from the ocean rocks.
Unlike its predecessor, it has bulbous eyes that attract smaller creatures and a hook-shaped mouth to suck them in.
Starfishes are so 2-dimensional. These species, called Berduri, are going 3-D, yo! Extra appendage in the Z-plane for your pleasure.
A distant cousin of the Keras, the Lemah prefers to stay low on the ocean bed. It does not have the rigid cell walls like the Keras that can make it stretch up, which gives it the bloated look.
The deep ocean has its version of a coral reef called Terumbu.
The Jari is one of the few bioluminous species. They are like fingers that try to catch smaller creatures.
What the Jari looks like in the dark.
The Rumpai resembles seaweeds.
The Kelopak's gender is distinguished by its color and appendage above its "head". The females are yellow with claws and the males are blue with red bulbs.
Not much is known about the brown Kakang, the white and blue Renek, and lime green Bintang other than they are usually found around Kelopaks. Alien to this region is a barnacle called Bearded Dagobah.
The Asing is looking for prey.
These cute, spiky creatures are called Landaks.
They are the favorite food of the Asing. They are most vulnerable when they are young. However, they can grow considerably.
The mature Landak grows eight limbs and a multitude of spikes.
One more view of them creatures living in harmony.
This is so cool. Nice imagination on all of the creatures. Great and unusual. It's nice to see something as fresh as this. Fantastic parts usage too, some of these pieces I haven't seen before. Awesome build.
what makes me think you rifled through your parts to find the weirdest bits? And what makes me think if i translate some of those names i will be seeing some puns? Lovely, colourful stuff. Unlucky on not advancing mate.
Fantastic parts usage, it has a great little underwater documentary feel. The bearded dagobah is cute. Looks like you had a lot of fun finding all your funky pieces for this build. Great stuff and good luck!
Fun little build there with tons of detail! I love all the names you gave them with the descriptions, it's like watching those Jacques Cousteau shows from the 60s and 70s only less grainy. ;) Good luck!
But... where's the chopsticks? Wait... I'm confused! Seriously... this is a beautiful lesson in the arrangement of color and shapes. It has an Oriental feel to it also! I enjoyed the marine biology lesson too! Best of Luck! :)
