The Rut by V4m2c4 The Rut by V4m2c4
Stellar-fanbacks enact flamboyant, semi-violent rutting rituals during the mating season. Here, a spurless juvenile male learns a thing or two about what being a "dominant male" means. Minor flesh wounds will be his only prize as a dominant male will not be sharing his prize.

Lovely! :) Bit difficult to make out the detail on their faces though.

I love these!  I love your attention to details and all of the images I've seen you produce adhere to some aspect of biological truth, even if the biology itself is speculative. This is yet another marvel!

fascinating- so they're analogous to the deer and antelope of earth in their rutting behavior? I wonder what other similarities and contrasts there are between them.

analogous for sure! I'd like to think that similar evolutionary traits, functions and abilities would be mirrored in some facet or another on alien planets...i mean if it isn't broken don't fix it.

right- convergent evolution. because if an alien planet has similar environmental features to earth, then similarities in life should arrive, including similarities in ecology.

thanks!! umh not sure exactly. I TRY..key word try, to alternate between humanoid images and alien creatures. I just uploaded my mermaid one so my next will be an alien creature. but can't tell you exactly when i'll be finished with it because I'm not easily pleased. but my next one for sure will be an alien creature!
