Feeds on Sound by nJoo Feeds on Sound by nJoo
Concept: Tiptoe

The creature lives in the deadland where food,etc are almost non-existent, the creature's body structure has evoled to the most simple and basic form, it's very light and fragile, only keeping what is needed for survival.

The food source of the creature is the most unique of all, it feeds on sound. Via the ultra thin webbing between the circular shape holes, it absorb sound waves and the energy is process in its special organs, filtering out the good sound waves. The sound nutrients is then store at the pouch-like organ at the back of the head,etc and the different wave nutrient results in the bright multi-colored skin. Due to its fragile body and bright colors, it becomes easy prey for predators, there fore while it feeds on sound, it is often in hiding and very very quiet, giving it the name Tiptoe.

At the center of the creature is its most vital organ, it is protected by the structure of the torso and legs. This is also where the creature's offspring inhabits until it is ready to be born.

Very neat! It really looks like it could be a real organism, though to me it looks like it would live underwater.

So, what would happen if someone decided to scream on a megaphone?

This is so cool :D You should write a whole book about something like this. Or about people who go to like a planet and they discover all these weird and dangerous creatures :D Like Avatar almost but.. more interesting.
NethanielShade Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
I'm making a roleplay almost exactly like what you described and I'm going to use some of this guy's creatures and more.
Note: A ROLEPLAY. Not a book. Not making money. Just for entertainment.

Love how it feeds off of sound and it looks like one of those aliens off of War of the Worlds but mini size!

i would have thought that if it feed on sound waves and filtered them out, then it would make noise.....but awesome concept.

This is one of the most unique descriptions I've ever heard. Nicely done!
Sarastra Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2010
That's an interesting idea.. I guess it could be done. There is not a lot in energy in everyday soundwaves though, so it would have to use *very* little energy and/or be in a very loud environment.
Additionally, you'd want a dense atmosphere or fluid for good transmission of sound. Depending on what materials are in the colourful pouch and the red organ, your creature could withstand high pressures from the look of it .. and maybe warmth, because this allows sound to travel faster and easier.
So I'm thinking.. maybe near volcanoes on a comparably big and young planet with a dense atmosphere? Volcanoes seem to be quite loud.. :) Of course creatures can live with less than ideal conditions too, so..

Hmm.. my knowledge on molecules is not sufficient yet to say whether it would really work though.. *plans to take more classes on astrobiology*

crazy cool concept ! I like the idea you had with the creature and her strange way of feeding.

Very interesting concept idea. I like your way of drawing it out with a size comparison. Neat little creature.

Felt-Tip-Fairys Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010
This creature is beautiful.. What an amazing mind and imagination you must possess! O= I am rather jealous. I also desire one of these creatures. :3 Would they be docile and very timid if they were to be kept as a pet, or would they perish if removed from the wild?
It reminds me ever so slightly of the Toothfairys from the recent Hellboy movie: The Golden Army. I wish that I could possess one of those, also. I find them to be adorable. x3
JTonks Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010
I love the fact you made a story to go with it. Brillant work!
johnbecaro Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
wow. this is the first time i saw a creature that feeds on sounds.Hell, I can imagine the creature if he goes to a rock .. Very nice, clever and unique idea.:thumbsup:
nin10aaron Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
A very awesome creature i really enjoyed the explanation but one wonders can it eat its own sounds? Kinda like its own perpetual food source.
Omnitelik Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
i absolutely love how it doens't have any resemblance to any living creature on earth (that we know of... stupid deep oceans). Kudos! very creative!
ATrueNorseman Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
that is a really interesting idea, though i think a lot of sci-fi fans would beat you senselessly with how an organism really would convert sound energy into its own energy

but, i think your picture is a real inspiration to how it actually could be done! :)
