having the throat run through the middle of the brain would probably be selected against, mostly because it would prevent swallowing anything large, also a slight vulnerability
although it makes it very alien becuase i dont know of any terran creature than has this feature

Actually it is based on the mollusc system

I just took a closer look at the mouth... does it have teeth behind those black fangs? Like molars and incisors?

Yep! Hundreds of spikes line its throat.

I do understand why they are so intelligent as it can be seen from their brain structure. 

Those compound eyes are so cool!
But I wonder, however, what kind of lens material in the ommatidium is.
Is it CaCO3, or the like, though they are vertebrates? :hmm: 

I also love those mouthparts!
They are so neat!

And as always, great work Alex!  :goodjob: revamp

Thanks, as for what the eyes are made of, I try not to get down to the biochemical level, my amateur level of knowledge would put me on shaky ground ;)

Yes, I understand.

You don't need to do that.

Auditory Ostium, Pharynx, Tentacular Ganglion... Mouthparts. That was just funny to me, no offense.

Sweet babies thats a detailed anatomy study. I would hate to be caught by that mouth, for I imagine the experience to be similar to going in a blender.

I think it looks cool.
This reminds me of the anatomy I thought of drawing a long time ago but never got around to actually working on. <.<

he evolved from a creature with radial symmetry?

I dont think so, probably more of a squid like creature.

Is the brain circling the Pharynx?
Abiogenisis's avatar
AbiogenisisProfessional Digital Artist
Yeah, but not a full circle, its open underneath

I very much like the style, it feels a bit nouveau 'Gray's Anatomy'
