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.

This creature was originally uploaded to Tumblr, but never made it over to the site!

 

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!

Buffin [147 of 151]

148-buffin

 

Buffin is the scarce final evolution of Therowing and Paraptor. Little is known of this creature other than its looks precisely match its personality. Equally at home in the air as it is on the ground, it possesses numerous physiological weapons, the most deadly being its whip-like tail. The exact physical make-up of Buffin’s tail is unknown. Many hypothesise that the creature can freely transform its tail from feathers to scales, based on what is required at the time. At other times, pictured here, it is made up of pure energy.

December 13th at 7pm we are hosting our second Capture Creatures gallery show at Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles! Featuring new work from us, a new variant cover for Issue 1 by Kelly Bastow and Tracy Liang, and 30+ other artists! You can’t miss it! RSVP on Facebook or just show up! 

Kangapunch [146 of 151]

147-kangapunch

Kangapunch is one of few remaining megafauna, giant prehistoric creatures that once dominated the planet. One of the largest creatures, it can tidily place its pre-evolutions Jarbounce and Quokick inside its pouch. Generally considered a pacifist, if one of its smaller evolutions is threatened, Kangapunch use their raw power and size to subdue even the strongest fighters. Kangapunch will retreat into the water if threatened by multiple predators, sealing its young inside its air tight pouch.
