Well again my core membership just arrived at its fateful end, and I must say, it was an interesting experience, almost more than 6 months (the first 3 months given by an anonymous user) without any annoying announcements and several options that without core I couldn’t have done it, although I did not use most to tell the truth, so it was kind of unnecessary, but whatever. Thanks to again for these last 3 months core, I will always appreciate it. It is likely that I will not renew this at least in the near future, I have no way of paying for it at the moment, and I do not see it as a high priority, I am quite satisfied with just being a common member.
On the other hand, main points of projects…
The Future is Far
Many have noted the high number of entries that I have made concerning the different possible things that exist in this project of future evolution, especially for the already established periods of time, continental drift and history in general without going into detail, and several parades of animal groups, however the original idea of this project was to tell it period by period, in different chapters to achieve extensive recording of the fauna and flora of the planet in each point of time, and I believe that it is time now to start with that routine. Soon I will show the introduction of the first period to visit this future, in this case a point in the future not so far, around 12 million years after ours, a rather calm time of warmer temperatures after the end of the ice ages.
A couple of weeks ago I unveiled some images on Tumblr about some concepts that I had kept (here 68.media.tumblr.com/300555548a… 68.media.tumblr.com/3b70412371…), as well as one image of a feline when I unveiled in "The horse is reconstructed" (this last one is part of this project too) These three images that show the different interpretations of some Holocene mammals with the 19th century paleoart style made for an advance intelligent alien species that inhabits the earth in a point in the future.
This is largely the construction of the general view of these beings on how the world was long before its appearance on this planet, as each organism has interpreted with a great inaccuracy as we have done in past times, adding to the fact that they are probably more unfamiliar to the morphology of extinct animals. Before entering fully with what the story is going to be, it is good to construct everything that has led these beings to think why they consider the strange representations of the Holocene animals as accurate from its point of view.
In the first place it would be good to explain that almost all the creatures of alternative evolution that I have created to this point, the sauropod predator, the small arboreal Ankylosaur and the one that has a similarity to a groveback, the hybrids stuff, the majority belongs to the same project of a multiversal scale which you guys see the name above. The idea is itself on humanity to discover interdimensional travel, making exploratory journeys into these alternative worlds, know about what would be and recording what exists into these ones, observing the level of divergence and collecting the fauna and flora data. The only thing I left out has been the human factor, concentrating completely on creatures and not following a story, just creating random concepts. It is unlikely that for the moment I will work mainly on the story of why or how humanity achieved the interdimensional journey (is mostly because this part is very related to others projects about the future of mankind), at least for the time being, however, I will continue with the alt evo investigations and will probably start working on individual worlds soon.
Alternative Extreme Earths and Cambrian Mars
The reason why I put both projects in the same line is because both are going to take the same course, the redesign ... now that I am looking back on these projects that have been more than two years of existence, I think they deserve an appropriate change.
On Cambrian Mars I will try to enter more deeply into what would be natural history, it was my mistake to give only a couple of paragraphs to describe the life on each period without working better, in addition to that I will modify the morphology of animals and plants, although that at the same time I would preserve some of the old designs like the synapsid like terrestrial Dinocaridid.
About Alternative Extreme Earths, are mostly just little redesigns on the one of the only 2 groups of animals that I did for the no spinning earth, being the cynodonts. Thinking in depth, I still think of doing the other worlds I had established, however, these will undergo minor changes and some of them will be withdrawn due to time and focus.
After a long time without any main activity about the spec creatures into the main chart, and apart of the real life chart, I started slowly the next wave of creatures that will be included in the V2 chart, including species not originally have added with the others, some new emerged over the months, and coming next new species for others projects. It has been a long time because of the focus I have given to other projects, personal things on real life and mainly because I have been trying to read the large number of existing projects to add such organisms into this new update, and I still have to read many more.
I was also considering the points by which some other projects could or could not be added, I will still keep the same principles, adding others as complexity of the work and above all the fact that these should be mostly related to the SE community that we know (The SE forum, DA community) and nothing fan-made works and things that streak with poor developed fantasy.
As an example here some already painted animals.
Several of the serine titanic birds, a retouch of a rhinograd in conjunction with other giant species that I had not noticed at the beginning, the Thunderwhale from settlers from the deep, the great Colossopede from Diyu, the dreadnought from the Alithocene, the giant snail (yes, looks like a big slug but is a descendant of a snail) psychophant (look where it came from s1.zetaboards.com/Conceptual_E…), and the strange Tiamat from Perdido.
And here the first sight of the Alien chart
The largest terrestrial and aerial organisms from Nereus, Darwin IV, and just because they are already done, the Snaiad fauna in comparison with sme of the biggest walking and aereal organisms extinct and alive.
Remember, is just the beginning, there is a lot of aliens yet to be added
I think it would be good to also establish that I will not add some things that several Speccers know as Primeval or Metazoica. Primeval because they barely show something more deep about the future worlds where the few future animals came, because “monster television show” and Metazoica because I still see some things that are not plausible like multiple giant groups of mammals, mammals are the predominant group in air, land and water (?), etc.
Everything good for now, have nice day/night
