Speculative Life Forms / Spec Evo.
Speculative Evolution is the artistic envisioning of fictional, but scientifically possible creatures that could have existed on an alternate Earth, or might actually exist somewhere on another planet or in the deep sea.
For geeks and nerds, artists, writers, philosophers, politicians and scientists alike: The creation of new worlds and new universes has been a key element of science fiction and fantasy. It can also exist outside the realm of scifi-literature and RPG-gaming as a means of exploring possibilities.
This subreddit is about sharing your worlds and discussing the many aspects of creating new ones.
What is palæontology? Literally, the world translates from Greek as old life discourse- but this is only the crudest way of stating it. Palæontology is unraveling the æons-long story of life on the planet Earth, from the earliest monera to the endless forms we have now, including humans, and of the various long-dead offshoots that still inspire today.
Pictorial art of monsters from the past or present: angels, demons, strange WTF creatures, drooling brutes, innocent-looking oddities, mythical hybrids, an image from a bestiary, etc. Yes, you can submit drawings of your own imaginary monsters.
We strongly encourage the crediting of artists by their real name.
This subreddit is focused on the discussion of conlangs, tools and activities to aid you in the construction of your own conlang, and creating a community environment where we can all enjoy conlanging together.
The goal of this sub is to take monsters from fantasy, mythology, imagination, sketchbooks, videogames and all the like and deconstruct their very character.
The idea is to take a monster and speculate on its biology (e.g. how exactly does bulbasaur function with a plant host on its back), evolution (why did a horse begin producing a horn, leading to the fabled unicorn) and any other deconstructions about our favorite mythologies.
Pictorial art of characters from fantasy, sci-fi, history, or other fiction. Armored warriors, powerful wizards, deadly ninjas, intrepid archaeologists, starfighter pilots, badass gunslingers: all are welcome. If it's awesome, fantastic, and human (or anything even close), submit it here!
