-----------------------------

Homunculi are what grows on aceans if ever they need anything like a human mind or personality. Simply put, they are human fetuses whose brains are fully developed in the cognitive areas.
The acaeans realized that it´s hightly inefficient to fully develop a human when they only need to grow a tiny section of their anatomy.
-Some samples of aging and damage progress and some random made-on-the-spot suggestions for body shapes the homunculi could be attached to.

Homuculus does translate into "little man." So this all makes much sense.

Sometimes it is best to either drop it when you slow down and revisit it later (after you've worked on something else) or to find some sort of related activity to "refresh" your inspiration.

That's really rather creepy... I like the way the tank is worked into the body of the host creatures, though.

That is just... wow!

The idea that an alien race would just clone/grow a human baby with a fully developed mind so they can get the proper mindset is just epic.

Were you the one who came up with it? If so, props to you man, that's an awesome concept.

Iririv and I were coming up with explanations for what the Acaeans actually are and how they adapt themselves, also to fill in some plot holes. Then he dropped this on me to explain a human-acaean chimera concept we were talking about. =P

Hehe, yea, I thought of it... it´s sort of inspired by the "head-in-a-jar" trope, some Dr. Fetus and some Evil Con Carne with a creepy realistic twist.

Personally I liked the second deisgn of the case the fetus is in better. It felt more secure but also showed off enough of the fetus? Just an offer of opinion though.
I definitely like the bird inspired design, not seen anything like that before - Although the case you chose would fit that one better I suppose with the 360 degree view.
All in all very cool. The humanoid one is also very creepy. :)
