Post 10: Dark Side Insects

When researching for the dark side of the planet, despite not wanting to go for the cliché of ‘dark is evil’, I looked into research that focus on creatures that live in dark environments. As a result, many of our designs for the darksiders were inspired by insects. Insects can also be easily redesigned through different gravities with tall cranefly like creatures in the central of dark side of the planet, and heavier built beetles on the outer rim. Furthering researching into the creatures from the darkness brought up the questions of whether or not they have eyes? Many creatures that have evolved within a dark environment have evolved to not require eyes.
