Bio-mechanical Centipede RD by Mari-chan05 Bio-mechanical Centipede RD by Mari-chan05
DeviantArt's THE BEASTS OF 9 CREATURE CONTEST

"Bio-Mechanical Centipede (rough concept sketch)"
Pencil (mechanical, 0.3 lead) over blue drafting pencil
Plain white paper
8 1/2" x 11"

Well, here's my rough concept sketch of a bio-mechanical centipede creature...
I tried to incorporate the lanky limbs I thought were one of the more dominating traits in all the 9 creatures, as well as the big (and many) eyes. I guess this relates best to the seamstress creature from the movie in regards to overall anatomy. It's inner gears are what propels it through the terrain, and while moving it tucks it's limbs up inside it's body. Its interior is made up of different metal and wooden parts all meshed together, and its "skin" is like a tarp or sandbag material that stretches to give it a wider range of motion. The head is composed of parts of a shark's jaws, and it has pliers for a tail.
I wish I had more time to sketch in some more detail let alone color it; if I had to change anything, it would be that it be made up of a greater variety of random parts... ^^;

But anywho, I hope others find it appropriate and able to fit into the world of 9! It was fun designing it!

I continue to be amazed at just how much more AWESOME other people's 9 centipede creatures are.

THIS one is just epic. Indeed, it is fawesome.

Where's the finished version though? Or is there not one? :(

Crap, now I wish I'd added some lanky legs to MY entry. *facepalm*

Aw thank you! But I wish it were made up of more parts like your design (I like your 9 dude, too! ;3 )...but thanks for the comment!
Unfortunately, I didn't have time to punch out a colored one...which I would love to do someday! Actually, I'd love to sculpt/build it, too! You gonna follow up on your design? :3

PS - loooooove the "facepalm" quote/gesture...I've never heard that term before, but I know exactly what you mean by it! 10 pts. to you!!! XD lolz...major lolz

My design really didn't look like it could actually function if you looked close enough at it; yours was well-covered in such a way that it allowed for suspension of disbelief and looked like it COULD function. Thanks though. :D

I think I will follow up on my design. I wanted to do a second one and it was far, far, FAR better than the centipede; it was in the realm of "I will <3 it and cherish it and keep it in the deepest vaults of my mansion yes I will" for me. :p But instead of finishing it I ran two miles into town and spent the rest of the day and well into the night working myself down to the stubs for a girl. Ah well.

[/RANT]

Looking forward to seeing more from you. :)

Aw thanks...I just would have loved to develop the mechanics further...and I hope to see your other creature design up some day! :3 I also have this concept of another hunter thingie similar to the cat-skull one in the movie...only it's more amped so to say. :P I hope to have that up here, soo at some point... ^^; Anywho, good luck with whipping out your other creature and your centipede! :D
