Sorry for the long wait.

To start this new chapter on the book of life that has been written on the small planet of ANU, I present you a new phylum: the Plurocorata.

The Plurocorata represent a large array of diversification across both of the polar forests of the planet, something that can be an indication of how old the phylum is and how it has scattered across the land. They’re not as common on the equator of ANU as Pilocorporea, mainly for not standing very good against the solar radiation.

Their main characteristics are: majority of the phylum has sexual dimorphism in divided in two sexes where its reproduction is mainly through budding;   their bodies are segmented on “cores” that act individually and, under right conditions, are used as pods to sprung newborns. They live in large groups and are divided in two sexes, that are:

Matrix: usually the larger and stronger of the two, the matrix is mainly responsible for securing territory, harness water and give birth to the offspring. Usually there is only a single matrix for a group, and it is "served" by the opposite sex, the Drone.

Drone: Drones are responsible for hunting, gathering and the transportation of resources from around the territory to the Matrix. The drone that is the most successful at its tasks is rewarded with reproductive privileges with the Matrix. While they are smaller and the name 'drone' carries a autonomous and mindless connotation, that couldn't be farther from the truth: Drones usually have a more developed “brain” focused on problem solving and communication. These skills are necessary for the exploratory nature of its biological function.

Offasaltus angelesii are tripodal creatures from the Quadrucorata subphylum, on a family called Exogenua. They live pretty much as antelopes on the breezy fields of the Walace’s Forests.


small note: The Plurocorata has first appeared on this piece.

These remind me of a robot-thing I saw in one of my dreams. It was terrifying.

DAAAAAYUM! It blows me away how you consistently manage to come up with these aliens that somehow get even cooler and more imaginative with every new upload! I also really like their otherworldly way of reproduction! It is very alien and imaginative while still seeming familiar and based in what we know about life so it seems very realistic... and it’s just cool to see something so novel of course, can’t wait to see what other awesomeness you have in store for us!

As always, I am astounded and inspired by the creativity of your work. Your understanding of organic forms is unparalleled in this genre of art. Can't wait to see more!

Have you ever considered making a 'behind the scenes' tutorial for how you paint? Memo Kosemen made something like this a few years back: Tutorial: Saliva Painting by nemo-ramjet

It's always fascinating to get a glimpse into an artist's process :D

Thank you very much my friend, that's a great compliment coming from you  :D

There's a tutorial on the making of that, using the previous phylum. It's gonna be up next month (hopefully) lol

Also question: if they reproduce by budding, then how does mating with the drones fit into that?
Sanrou's avatar
Sanrou Digital Artist
their reproduction is not asexual. The budding happens only when certain genetic goals are achieved. I'm gonna do a chart explaining in the near future   :D
