Blandoptera - II by Sanrou Blandoptera - II by Sanrou

Like Terrestrial tropical birds, the Blandoptera had adopt the most various forms and colors: due to the high amounts of radiation on the regions of Eden Valley and the Abzu Belt, they evolved to have highly protective and reflective “scales” that also display a rainbow range of colors and patterns.

Lucesia infernalis AN.

L. infernalis is a small herbivorous creature that can be found alone on high-altitude red “flowers” in the Eden Valley. They feed by piercing said flowers with its jaw/tongue to suck the internal fluids. While they are not very fast flyers, they are agile in the air and can hide quickly among vegetation if any danger appears;


Pseudosculum alba AN.

P. alba can be found across the Abzu Belt, on the lower vegetation. Living in the shade, they are almost entire absent of scales and remain immobile most of the day, going out only at sunrise to get food. They eat buoyant plants that only appear for a short period in the morning on the provisory lakes formed by the nocturnal rains of ANU; 


Foliopalum colorius AN.

F. colorius just eat leaves and glide between trees most of the time on groups of dozens. Flying greenish cows;


Vortebrafistula longus AN.

V. longus is an herbivore that lives in small colonies on the Eden Valley. Their shape and color is akin to bamboo-like plants that grows around lakes and rivers, where they blend themselves with the environment and become almost invisible. Every Blandoptera has an internal flexible air tube through the entirety of its body that are used to help maneuver fast between different altitudes, as well to function as sustenance to a series of “muscles” in the body. V. longus is different: Its tube is segmented and some "high-tension" strings hold its parts. That allows a fast muscular response, used to scape any danger by “launching” itself from a rest position to any direction available.

I like these a lot, good use of low gravity and thicker air.

They're like flying flatworms.

But with such short "wings" I have to wonder, how do they remain airborne? Air sacs of some kind?

Yes they are!
Gravity on anu is about 20% of Earth's, and it has a denser atmosphere. Bigger wings would be a waste of energy  :)

Didn't really consider the fact they're living under alien conditions, that makes sense.
Lovely artwork, of course.
