Marine Expedition

Category: Expeditions
Ends: 1 September 2021, 04:00:00 UTC (2 weeks ago)

Draw or write about a new species of flora or fauna discovered on the hydrogen-rich Rest Station moon, Tidix-c II! Click 'Show Details' for the rules!

Details


 

INTRODUCTION

One of the chief imports to Alurizan society is knowledge. With it comes innovation, but culturally and scientifically, it is the equitable foundation on which to build a healthy society. This knowledge comes from both within, in the form of laboratory and practical sciences, but also from the outside in the form of expeditions. Whether by probe or manned surveys, the Aluriza continue to expand their knowledge and help where they can, such as with Project XERO.

However, maintaining the logistical requirements of long distance manned exploration, there is a net of respite to be used by anyone; providing food, a place to rest or fuel, it allows a safe network of support for all sorts of travel. Establishing these ‘Rest Stations’, as they are colloquially known, further expands their range of exploration.

This is where you come in:

The Expeditionary Services have identified a system on the edge of AREZ space: Tidix. One of its planets, Tidix-c, is a dead world rich in rare minerals that would serve as an excellent site for an orbital refueling station. However, it has a habitable moon, the surface of which is near entirely ocean. Long distance probes have confirmed that it is free of advanced life, however the ES would like to catalog the various flora and fauna as well as collect samples. This will form a baseline snapshot of the world's ecosystem so it can be carefully monitored, ensuring the rest station and mining operations on the planet's surface do not disrupt the moon’s balance of life.
So, new members of the Aluriza, are you up to the task of assisting the ES in their ecological survey? For those who think they've got what it takes, sign up at your local ranger station today!

 

 


 
INFORMATION
In this prompt, you will draw or write about a new species of flora or fauna discovered on the hydrogen-rich Rest Station moon, Tidix-c II!

Consider the environment; what adaptations might this lifeform have to survive? This planet is covered nearly entirely in water, so the flora and fauna concepts must be at least semi-aquatic in nature. Get creative! Also, while inspiration is fine (and encouraged), your fictional lifeform should not be too similar to one found on Earth or in popular media.

When submitting your art or writing for this prompt, please upload your piece to the Gallery here! Artwork uploaded to the Project Xero gallery also earns 1 Prestige.


EXAMPLE
Artwork completed for this prompt does not need to be detailed. A simple, unshaded image of the full plant or animal will suffice! Writing notes about the lifeform and what features it has is not required, but is encouraged. Your image will not be judged on skill level, artists of all styles and skill levels are welcome to participate.

 

 



REQUIREMENTS
The piece submitted to this prompt must show good effort and adhere to the following guidelines:

★ Artwork must be full-color and show the full animal or plant.
★ Sketchy styles are accepted, so long as the art shows good effort and does not appear rushed.
★ Writing must be at least 200 words, and describe the plant or animal in detail.




RESTRICTIONS

★ You may only enter once!
★ Artwork submitted must be new art created by you. It cannot be traced or created on a preexisting template or base.
★ Your lifeform concept must be an original idea created by you, not something taken from popular media.

1. First, upload your piece to our on-site Expedition Gallery.

2. Fill out all of the related information, add a title and description.

3. Copy the URL of your piece posted to the Gallery, and click "Submit Prompt" for Marine Expedition.
