Arcemus [152 of ???]

152-arcemus

Arcemus, a telekinetic creature, is of a jovial and diminutive stature. Its defining feature, its key-shaped tail, allows the miniscule marsupial to create doorways where there are otherwise none.

Adept at fitting through small spaces and built for speed, this social creature helps more cumbersome creatures find safe passage through treacherous mountain ranges and caves. Where it acquires its natural sense of direction is unknown, but under my  test conditions they have navigated through complex mazes in under a minute.

Olm [151 of 151]

olm

 

Olm sightings are very rare, sometimes occurring only once every couple of years. Observed in the wild, Olm has only a single attack, a devastating burst of dragon fire. Pictured here, the creature has expended this attack. Once their attack is used, they can never use it again. No Olms have ever reached captivity.

This is the final of the original 151 Capture Creatures, a project that took two years to traditionally paint. All 151 (and a couple of undocumented sightings) can be seen in the Capture Creatures hardcover encyclopedia from B9 or at the Capture Creatures website.

The creatures live on in the new monthly comic series from Boom Studios, which we continue to work on every day! Capture Creatures #1 is available in comic stores everywhere, direct from Boom or digitally via Comixology! Issue #2 will be in stores before Christmas!

This Saturday we celebrate the release of the comic at Gallery Nucleus with a variety of new pieces by us, an exclusive variant cover of Capture Creatures #1 and the amazing work of 30+ artists! RSVP on Facebook here or just show up! Thanks again for supporting us!

Walerus [150 of 151]

150-walerus

 

Only a Pinipounce skilled in hunting can evolve into Walerus. When the creature’s girth exceeds the capacity of its already large frame, it begins to sprout tusks, beginning its evolution. In adulthood, these tusks can reach up to eight feet in length. In contrast to its predecessors, Walerus feeds infrequently, relying on its effective parsing of body fat. Thriving in freezing waters, Walerus uses its tusks to hang onto ice so it may freely breathe without setting foot on land. In this aquatic environment, a Walerus can effectively use its weight to propel itself at great speeds.

Momochute [149 of 151]

149-momochute

After consuming autumn leaves Momophyl evolves into Momochute. Unlike the Momophyl, Momochute rely more on climbing. Abstaining from riding wind and air currents, Momochute quickly climbs to wherever it wishes to feed. After feeding, it gently parachutes to the ground.

 

 

Glutorch

133-GLUTORCH

The apex predator of the forest, Glutorch has been known to reduce entire groves to cinders in search for a single creature. Glutorch’s senses are dulled by over-use of its powerful flame abilities, reducing it to a directionless, angry beast. Only the strongest aquatic types can hope to subdue it.

Melder

132-MELDER

 

A hostile evolution of Bechder, Melder is a carnivorous predator. Melder’s primary targets in the wild are the diminuitive Beear, Shishi, Pinkgolin and Earthine. Farmers attempt to trick them into eating rotten fruit, which due to fermented sugars contains alcohol. They then transport the intoxicated Melder as far away as they can.

Jarbounce [148 of 151]

146-jarbounce

 

Jarbounce is potential prey for a number of creatures. It posseses few combat abilities but can leap to great heights and cover great distances incredibly fast. Jarbounce communicate chemically when dust bathing, their entire life story is told to others of its kind in seconds. When not bathing, they communicate by vibrating their legs. 

Three more creatures to go! Come see us at Comic Arts LA this Saturday! You have no idea how excited we are that Los Angeles finally has an indie comics show!
