Silvanian flying Pseudo-athropods by Hyrotrioskjan Silvanian flying Pseudo-athropods by Hyrotrioskjan
The two best known members of the Monopennidea, Monopenna and Ancoracauda, in comparison.
In difference to flying animals of the earth these creatures evlove directly from aquatic pseudo-athropods which were similar to flying fishes. During the flight the big wings stand nearly still and only the smaller ones flapping very fast to come forward. To land they coil their tail around branches. But not all plants are good places to sleep, some climbers have evlove sticky air roots which become fatal traps for every small animal which tries to land on it.

edit: Yesterday the award exhibition opend and the prizes were given. Well, I got nothing but the vernissage was very nice, I met many nice people and got much compliments for my work.

I wish genetic engineering was just a little more advanced so I could try and make these. They look fantastic.

Yes, there is a group of strange, mostly predatory, vertebrates which live aquatic and can be also found in the lighless deeps where no other bigger animals can survive.

Hmmm, so the whole wordl is populated by maggots, that never grow to be anything else:D

Pretty cool idea.;) I wonder are there any bigger varieties?

No big fliers? How depressing. I guess I'll just have to wait a couple of hundred millions of years and one or two mass extinctions for some !:D

That's certainly nice.;) It's only a bit weird, as you mentioned in some previous works that his world has lower gravity. I think low gravity encourages big things to fly:D

Yes, but they also need much room to land and to nest, and Silvanus is, how my new Deviation shows, a world full of micro-habitats, without open spaces... and how I mentioned somewhere before: terrestrial animals are relative new inventions of nature here =)

Oh, but it's nice that you're doing your aliens again. Silvanus is an ancient project, isn't it?

The upper one is a predator and the lower a omnivore species.

The cool thing about your art is that you give it so much detail. It makes you believe that those creatures really exist

What kind of exhibition?

They are truly beautiful, and I really like the idea of the two little wings working like a propeller! I think this is a really great take on alien "insects" that deviates nicely from what we usually see

Sorry to here you didn't win anything. Maybe it was above them and they didn't get it.

I like your art immensely because of the mixture of science. It makes me feel like there are totally new worlds out there.

So arthropoid creatures are dominant because of the low gravity and rich atmosphere? Great ideas; these look like silverfish-fly hybrids almost.

Now that you added the floating tree thing, I think I understand Silvanus: Originally an ocean world, like a warm Europa maybe, but thanks to the rise of island trees "land" animals have begun to evolve.
