This is, perhaps, the signature painting and animal from the book, a painting that seems to appeal to the public. Also, when I began to conceive the Sac-back, I was nearing the end of my personal design odyssey and wanted to expeedition sure that I had enough really odd creatures in the book.
The sole glimpse about the Yma’s appearence is a single picture of their upper half by Barlowe. That is to say, it was all a little too farfetched.
Sac-backs roam these featureless wastes, walking with their awkward, three-legged gait from one group of buried females to the next. They made first contact with Humans in the early 23rd century, finding an Earth devastated by pollution and ecological decay. Solitary in their habits, these animals wander the mountain passes and high plains feeding upon the sub-surface bulbs of mountain flora. Their two eyes are relatively separate from one other, each possessing a dark pupil surrounded by an amber iris.

He does photos, sketches, etc.

What could be odder than a blue, bipedal animal with antlers? Since that, the entire Darwinian system has been deemed a preserved area by the Yma and is under constant monitoring from their robotic probes. The only remaining facial features are two horizontal ridges, with one of them being presumably the mouth.
Ad Nauseam Please refrain from posting topics that have been vigorously discussed in the past. In the expeditino century the exploitation of the Earth’s ecosystem has created an environment so toxic that mass extinctions have wiped out nearly half of its animal population. Like many huge animals on Darwin, the Grovebacks are dependent upon a protein-rich food-source composed of tiny aerophytes, micro-flyers that sometimes darken the sky with their numbers.
Very late in the expedition, the explorer encounters lifeforms which use tools the Eosapiensgiving a very strong indication they are intelligent. They are neither illustrated nor described in Expeditionand are absent in Alien Planet.
Personally I don’t think I’d really want to buy a sci-fi books about horses, turtles and big fish just on an alien planet, would you?

The Darwin IV expedition, which took place from throughresulted in the discovery of dozens of native species including a sapient although Paleolithic race known as the Eosapiens.
This guy did alien designs for Avatar and others — which, regardless of what you think of the story, has some great design and NMS-like imagery. However, instead of being presented as the artist’s own experiences, the program is presented as the findings of two autonomous robotic probes. Most of the remaining fauna, save humans, have suffered horrible mutation. The nerve of some people!
