Eekul species ref OUTDATED [READ DESCRIPTION] by Dezilon Eekul species ref OUTDATED [READ DESCRIPTION] by Dezilon
Yes. Be a good boy/girl and read the description, like the title says.

Ok first off: This is not an open specie. I've given several people permission to make one, but they never did it and honestly that's both disappointing and insulting.

You may, however, draw my or other people's Eekul characters all you want, there's no need to ask for permission. I'd like to know if you do it though.

Onto the most important note:
This ref is very outdated, both art and info-wise. Most of the basic info about the Eekul society is still the same, but much has changed. When this specie was created, I mostly went for super cool and "unique" looking critters and tossed tons of limbs and eyes on them. They still have tons of limbs and eyes, but there's much, much more to them. I have an entire planet to go with them, a beautiful but alien world, with plenty of other intelligent races as well as dangerous monsters.

You hardly know 5% of all there is to know about this world, and I'm not planning to change that. I usually like to keep my worlds to myself and my close friends.

I suppose you CAN ask for permission to create an Eekul character, but it's highly unlikely I will grant it unless you're a friend or somebody I trust. Keep in mind: Eekuls are not about cool looks and eyes and limbs. To create one, you would need to know so much more.

If you already have an Eekul, you're allowed to keep it, of course.

:megaphone: TL;DR VERSION This specie is not open and the ref is horribly outdated.

My Eekuls:


Eekuls created by others:
~LiiaDragon7 - Veern
~Diamondstorm - unnamed
*pamala77 - Zija




Texture is from CG textures [link]

Oh this species looks pretty nice but I'm afraid the looks of them are what you keep the most important.

I wonder what purpose those extra limbs play. They're too small to reach ground, they seem to be too weak to be of much help while climbing and they just, well, hang there. I'd like to know how they evolved.

They seem to have a very snake-like jaw but I don't really get the "no teeth" point <:U Even snakes have a set of small teeth to prevent the food from sliding back from the throat.

The life cycle's pretty well done but if I needed to crit something, it would be about the "eggs". You see, eggs usually have the shell to protect the fetus and to hold it all together. A plot of slime would also dry very fast.

All in all, it looks like a pretty nice species but some things seem like they haven't been tought out as well as they could've been.
What do you think?

Would it be okay if my shape shifting species turned into an eekul temporarily? I'll give you credit for the eekul species of course and i'll send you a link of the pic when it's posted. As long as it's okay with you. [link]

Hmm well ... are you planning to draw only one picture of your species turned into an Eekul? Because that would be okay. But I'd rather you don't do it several times or making a recurring thing.

Also, I read the part of the description where it says they need a sample of DNA to shift into a species. It would be impossible for them to get Eekul DNA since Eekuls live on another planet (unless they can travel around in space ... what do I know). So essentially, I simply don't think your species would be able to shift into Eekuls. I don't know if you care, just thought I'd say it.

They do travel around in space and I wasn't going to make it a reoccurring thing. Just one picture.

Would you be possibly interested in submitting the Eekul and/or many of your creations to Alien-Crossing? It would be awesome to have it as part of the group. Although, I do have one stipulation, which you may or may not find reasonable. We have an official template, and would ask that you fill it out. It would be easy, considering the amount of information you have here, and you may choose to omit any parts of the template you like. Feel free to visit the group!

Well if I had any free time to spare, I'd like to, but sadly I don't :< If I DO have time some day, I might do it. But that would require me to have absolutely nothing else to do and that doesn't happen very often.

There are no time constraints. Whatever you can manage is fine. This group is mostly a recreational thing. Thank you for your consideration, though. If you want to find the template, there's a link posted on our group page.

Actually, I would like to draw them, they look very cool...

But I just felt myself a complete retard by reading 'But yeah you're quite fucking insane if you actually read all those blocks of text LULZ'

and:

'Yes it is possible for people to create their own Eekul I don't see why the hell you'd want to lol'

I don't want to be bitchin' but maybe you could try to be a little more loving towards any of your fans ^^' because I dont doubt you have them... don't act surprised, you're a splendid artist I think many people on this page'd proven/agree on that.

Aside from that, I find it a pity that you're saying that people need to ask your permission to draw them (what if they want to just make a beautiful drawing of one?) and that they have to create a complete design with a backstory. Ofcourse, it's your work and idea and story and what not, I do agree with you on that... but if I find it a cool design, I would not be authorized to draw one myself?

Not sure if you can really control that, although I understand putting it on your page at least makes it evidence, if people do it illegally.

Other than all that, great stuff. Those things I pointed out, they're just my thoughts and things'd bothered me by viewing the page, nothing more. I'm not suggesting that you should change things, I'm only mentioning it.

Wow it was like ages since I wrote all that, I don't even remember it.
I was such a whiny bitch back then haha.

But about the permission stuff ... it only applies if you want to make an Eekul character - if you want to draw one of my Eekul characters, you don't need to ask for permission. So I suppose it would be okay to just draw a random one. I have those rules because I don't want anyone to abuse my specie and go do whatever they want with it, you see. And many have asked for permission to make a character and then never done it, which made me kinda sad. Almost made me want to make Eekuls a completely closed specie. But I can only admit that I do like them, I mean, there's a whole world with them in my head, with a language and society and everything, and I do like it when other people care about this world and want to 'be part of it'.

Anyway, don't feel like a retard. I would actually be very honoured you'd draw an Eekul, character or not. I think I'm gonna go change the description right now because it's just bitchy and whiny anyway. Perhaps I should do something about the rules too. You kinda made me rethink things.
