Normally completely docile creatures, these large, jet black ungulates roam the plains under the cover of night, trying their best to remain under the cover of darkness. However, when a predator is nearby, or when they're startled, these creatures send a huge jolt of electricity from the sacs around their throat up through their horns, putting on a light show bright enough to scare away most would-be predators. ..And if that doesn't work, they always have electrified horns to protect themselves with. :D
Some kind of tree lemur fellah who jumps around shocking prey with it's scythes. Not too creative but at least I hid it's 'bizzness' under some hair.
another collaboration with kinsei, this time for c.o.w #80 electrified, same as before he did the idea and lineart and i did the colouring
The Stormfinch is one of natures truly great marvels. This bird, related to the vampire finch, stores static electricity, which is created when it flies, in lobes located in his legs. It can discharge this electricity through its talons, enabling the bird to kill smaller birds and kill birds up to 5 times its own weight, like the pearled crow in this artists rendition.
The Stormfinch hunts in flocks of 5 or 6 birds. After stunning their prey they feed on its blood. Unlike those of it`s cousin, the vampire finch, the victims of the Stormfinch rarely survive.
A gargantuan aquatic beast. Harnesses and applies lighting given off by storms for a number of survival needs. Hence the name, families of these creatures have been reported to be constantly moving towards areas were storms abound. The lighting is used for mundane uses such as hunting and defense, to more special tasks such as beacons for lost members.
Dwelling at the bottom of dark waters this cousin to the ever so popular Pandalus borealis searches for worms and small shellfish at night. Its electrical cells reaching from the top of the head along the back supplies the stingshrimp's deadly tentacles with electricity. One touch can kill most small sea creatures leaving them open to feed on. With enough electrical charge this little bugger can even paralyze bigger fish looking for a snack. A deadly weapon and an excellent defense mechanism. On top of that its firefly - like bottom is used to light up the environment when searching for food at night.
Lightning is drawn to this creature making it electrified. Because it is so much taller than anything else in its environment there is no way for it to avoid the lightning during a storm. Unfortunately for these enormous creatures the area they live is known for it lighting storms. The other problem that plagues these creatures are the giant horns or their back act like lighting rods...
In the near future, this deformed beast lives close to radioactive waste storages. It has mutant cells capable of storing static electricity, that can later be released on a deadly lightning bolt, which it uses to slaughter its preys or scare larger predators.
I call this thing: The Joltren
This beast dwells in areas of high altitude, and uses its metal horn to attract lightning. It can hold the charge of the electricity for a few months at a time in its spinal column, and projects the charge into the form of arms and a tail for movement. In times where there are no storms, this creature is virtually harmless, just a fuzzy lump rolling around on the ground.
