Spore Creature Creator meets Starcon
« on: June 17, 2008, 12:04:26 am »

Yep, another art project. But this one is assigned ahead of time.

I've been looking around online if anyone has made any creatures that resemble those in SC2, biological data, or races. So far, no luck.

So I have come up with an idea (like several might have once they heard of this editor trial release). That is, to make your best interpretations or replications of SC2 races and creatures using the Spore Creature Creator.

The trial release is tomorrow, in case noone heard, so get cracking on how you'll execute it. Youtube and Google Video has a tutorial somewhere.

I figure the Ur-Quan and Zex's Beauty would look freaking gnarly. Plus, I could even work on my previous idea of the metamorphosized Ur-Quan with this program. My only concern is, can Spore handle the scale and movements of Ur-Quans?

And here's how he looks like with his kids..
(The gripper-mouth-thingys near its feet are there because of the requirement of a mouth (or at least I thought at the time that that was preventing me from saving the thing))

I wonder what the "Stop! What you are doing is wrong! Why do you do this thing?" creatures look like... Any ideas?

Good looking creatures. Rider over on SCDB made a Spathi, although as you can see it's not spot on.

Love the Pkunk and Spathi Mk 2. Not so sure about the Quan.

But the second spathi Mk. 2 picture is just adorable, I don't know why, but I get the feeling that it's smiling.

Hee, I like the Spathi and the Pkunk, too. <3 Any suggestions on improving the various Ur-Quan?

Now~ my Sporepedia page is over here, and I have three new models to show off~

Melnorme:
This one was a bit difficult, due to the utter lack of way to extrapolate what Melnorme look like from their in-game appearance. BUT BUILD IT I DID.

http://pics.livejournal.com/alanahikarichan/pic/0000yz6x
http://pics.livejournal.com/alanahikarichan/pic/0000zw44

Spathi, Mk. 3:
I went for making the eyestalk outta the body instead of using one of th in-game stalkeyes, since the stalkeyes clip pretty badly in some of the animations. Y/N?

http://pics.livejournal.com/alanahikarichan/pic/00011skb

VUX, Mk.2:
Still not entirely satisfied, but I like this one better than my first try. <3

And another shot of my Yehat, since I love this pic:

I take it the full version doesn't allow for tubed or tentacled mouths?

It... it might-- I don't know. If it does, I need it even more than I already did. |D;; *Is using a slightly hacked version of the free demo*

That spathi vid features a pretty inspired treatment of the spathi theme - really nice. Very energetic

Spathi - Safe Haven from the Precursors' second remix pack. Jouni "Mark Vera" Airaksinen has captured the Spathi response to large, potentially hostile, heavily armed starships orbiting their homeworld perfectly.
