Buffin [147 of 151]



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]


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.

Peskabre [145 of 151]


Peskabre’s evolution occurs when a Peskane leaves its ocean habitat permanently. Peskabre must consume huge amounts of water, as it is unable to breathe pure oxygen. The creature has many pockets deep within its body for the longterm storage of its breathing water. Peskabre use their tusks to defend bodies of water where their fellow Pesky and Peskane reside.

Bechder [144 of 151]



Bechder is a cute and cuddly creature that betrays little of its future capabilities. Many Bechder remain in this state, living in harmony with the rest of the creatures in its leafy habitat. Its flame related abilities are not offensive and the creature has been known to warm less insulated creatures in the winter with its breath. The conditions that result in their aggressive evolutions is unknown.

Staant [143 of 151]



This painting is for sale!And SPX is this weekend just outside DC! Come get our new book!

Physically strong Puugs eventually diverge from their colony and evolve into Staant. Staants make a conscious decision to sacrifice their building ability for superior defensive qualities. Still small in stature, they team with countless other Staants to protect their colonies from aggressors. Staant’s head-pincers grow quickly, often snapping them off themselves to use as weapons. When still attached to their heads, these pincers deliver powerful stings.

Scoot [142 of 151]



This painting is for sale! Also we’re at SPX this weekend in Bethesda, MD at the TopatoCo tables (W13-20) where we will be releasing the new 300+ page Capture Creatures book!

Scoot’s speed and lack of body-mass allow it to run on water for up to a mile. However, if a body of water is longer than a mile, Scoot is liable to sink. As a plant creature, Scoot thrives on water and will often stay underwater, breathing through the flower on its tail. Camouflaged underwater as a lilipad, he is often mistaken for Lilipaddle, which can lead to some tense encounters.
