Third Place: Scratch's Nano-Beast (Scratch)
This isn't a bad alien, but it's very underdeveloped. The lore behind its evolution doesn't actually explain why gorillas became cyan and got Ant-Man powers, and there's really just not much to it overall.
Second Place: WTB's Quarantine
This entry, on the other hand, has a lot to it, which I have to commend WTB for; that being said, it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the theme. It seems more like a virus alien than anything beast-related. Really good alien, but it loses points in the contest for not being particularly relevant to said contest.
A pretty solid alien whose manticore design firmly relates it to the contest's 'Beast' theme. Good job on this one.
Congrats to Boaring for winning, and thanks to everyone who participated! See you around.
