Awesome creature! I love how all your creatures are so unique and interesting. :D I just looked through all your monters on the bestiary, and I think they are all amazing :)
I was wondering if you could possibly give me some crits or just a comment on the last creature I designed. I would love some advise from you. :D [link]

seriously dude WTF
how does your brain work to come up with these creatures
they are amazing
what do you take?

I take Zazen, and I allow random/subconscious inpulses to emerge... allow myself to release control. The human brain is developed to make a context of everything, so when random patterns (like clouds) are presented, it tries to make sense of them. A prime inhereted biologicial function is to quickly discover dangerous creatures among the jungle undergrowth, so the brain tries to make make out life-forms everywhere. All this simplifies creature-design. Make a few random brush-strokes and a new creature is potentially born.

Thanks, John!

Cool. :D

I think I might use some of your creatures in a DnD campaign I'm doing soon, if that's alright? :-)

What game system are you basing the stats off of?

"I think I might use some of your creatures in a DnD campaign I'm doing soon, if that's alright?"
That's the purpose of these, so yes, absolutely! :) ...(but only if it is non-commercial)

There is no particular game system involved. I have tried to make generic stats, that are easily translated into the game of your choice.
