ANU - Inexperience by Sanrou ANU - Inexperience by Sanrou
Afternoon, along Lake Sagan's beach, a horde of Flamanaris heads towards a new feeding ground. A young one, that just reach its maturity, picks a senseless fight with a random companion to show strength. Hind legs up, Lung out and extended, angry noises. It got smashed to a pulp.

Noises? :ponder:  I didn't think creatures like these would vocalize at all. Aren't they a bit more like giant arthropods? cockroach

not necessarily. While they don't have vocal chords, the Policapta can produce a big variety of sounds and complex noises: flapping of its lungs inside the pulmonary cavity, air compressed through it's anus or genitals, friction of limbs, etc.  :) (Smile)

Oh you mean it "farts" whenever it communicates? Just like fish when they use their flotation bladders? Laughing So Much Hard Emoticon HA! How funny!

:) (Smile) Okay. Listening-Emoticon Do some of them make "hissing" sounds like the Madagascar hissing cockroach while others rattle like cicadas, chirp like crickets, squeak like caterpillars, and/or buzz like flies and bees (or even make clicking sounds like dolphins, even though they are not arthropods or any other kind of invertebrate themselves)?

Yes for all except the hissing.  :D
Because of the way their lung cavity works, most of policapta can "bark". it's not the same as dogs, but close enough. The Petridonus cachinnis, besides its peculiar laugh, can produce a "roar-bark" that is pretty close to the maned wolf's.

Nod Very interesting. I may not be a sound designer, but did you know that I have the ability to recognize sounds? If I were both a sound designer and creature designer, I would come up with what kind of sounds would fit whatever creature I make. That would also include making paleoart of extinct animals and sounds to speculate what they would have sounded like (including dinosaurs, as I would use birds and reptiles as sound effects for them if I could. Just like Israel Barber and a few other Youtube Channels that I have watched videos from). If I were to make my own alien arthropod creatures, not only would I take influence from live arthropods and other animals in the real world (both living and extinct), but I would also come up with some sound ideas for them. By the way, do you think the creatures you made sound anything like barking geckos?

that's cool man, nice to know. :D
I've had to search, since i never saw a barking gecko, and no, none of them make similar sounds.

The thing that fascinates me about Anu's lifeforms so much is that they are so very odd, but a beautiful kind of odd. They are some of the best designs I've come across so far. 
Really love the way this looks! Great job! :D
