Some Kind of Alien

This originally came from a GAN-generated image (here, 2nd row, 2nd from the right). I like the bauplan I came up with to make sense of the AI’s work:

Four limbs , one at each vertex of a rhombus, with another rhombus and its four limbs stacked on top of the first – the “tail” is the limb on the posterior vertex of the upper rhombus.

Spiracles in the armpits (where they should always go). Mouth between the lower four limbs.

Don’t ask me what the anterior limb with the patagium is for. Stabilization while skim-feeding?


Be my patron and see stuff like this one week earlier
