The Lemmy (Lemur Madidus Visio)
The Lemmy is found in the Highlands of ireland. The most remarkable feature of the Lemmy is its manner of self defense. When it is chased by a predator, it will wait for a unexpected moment in the chase, bend over and stick it's hind legs in the air revealing a face-like feature on its underbelly. This menacing "face" on its belly is complemented by its huge tail giving it a look not unsimilar to a somewhat drunken rockstar. On its underbelly the Lemmy evolved two light area's with dark spots on its skin, resembling two wide open eyes.
While in this pose, the Lemmy furiously waves its hind legs and its fake head. This threathening pose, called the "Lemmy face", is most effective in scaring off all chasing predators. For more curious predators the Lemmy has a second detterent. In a final act of indignity the Lemmy slightly lifts its tail and sprays the predator with it's feacies.
The Lemmy is a very curious creature. When one is chased, nearby Lemmies are often seen watching the chase from afar. They seem most amused when the predator is scared by the Lemmy face and moreso when the predator is chased of by a hail of little nuggets of shit. But it must be know, that although the Lemmy may seem scary, it is harmless. It has no real defenses, and once the predators catch on, it will surely mean the end of this akward creature.

now THATS scary
August 5th, 2006, 05:21 PM
or at least something that couldnt let you sleep at night
August 5th, 2006, 06:13 PM
My vote goes to...Hey!!:O This isn't the pearl finder poll! What's going on here?
August 6th, 2006, 12:17 AM
ah yes....something to do on the flight home from boston. ;)
August 6th, 2006, 07:07 AM
heheh - i'm still waiting for my COW star!! :P I'm stunned i won it!
This one is going to be tricky.....i'm thinking the real challenge here is to paint it without anything else to imply that the creature is harmless.....say, if you had it being petted by children, but it looked hideously scary. I think thats a cheeky way around it!!!
hmnmnm - the thinking cap goes on......and.....hey this thing doesnt work!!
August 6th, 2006, 11:55 AM
oooh, cool, I didn't know you get a cow star for winning! Sweet - there is an extra incentive to participate! Yippi! How do you get the bunny head next to you avatar? Does it mean admistrator? Probably, right? But it already says administrator so it would be somewhat redundant. Then again, the more "schnickschnack" the better!
August 6th, 2006, 12:16 PM
I guess the bunny is part of the COW star :confident
August 7th, 2006, 12:34 PM
I can't wait to see what people start posting. I'm thinking puppy with the head of a cthulhu.
August 7th, 2006, 12:39 PM
Well, I'm thinking about participating in this COW-thing for the first time... and as I'm sketching away and look at my stuff, I sort of think: Is it okay if it's scary enough to give you a heart-attack... and can you call that harmless? Just checking, to be sure...
August 7th, 2006, 01:01 PM
August 7th, 2006, 01:05 PM
oooh, cool, I didn't know you get a cow star for winning! Sweet - there is an extra incentive to participate! Yippi! How do you get the bunny head next to you avatar? Does it mean admistrator? Probably, right? But it already says administrator so it would be somewhat redundant. Then again, the more "schnickschnack" the better!That "bunny" head is one of the mascots of COW...Jull won the first round of COW (topic: mascot) together with Matt Dixon, so we have Matt's War-Cow (which you can see in every COW-thread) and Jull's COW is used for the winners as the winner-icon...
as long as it's harmless it's ok...you know i could get a heart-attack by looking at Michael Jaeckson (haha, built-in insider gag :perv: got it? :)) but wait...is he harmless though?...you got the point...:perv:
August 7th, 2006, 02:49 PM
Oh Fozzy. :nohope:
If I had a dollar for every time someone thought they were first making up that pun I wouldnt have to look for work as a concept artist.
However, being the butt of one of your jokes makes me feel like I belong, so I accept your humor in the spirit with which it was intended.
Michael J(aecks) Fox
PS, you made me change the avatar. It was all you.
August 7th, 2006, 03:47 PM
Sounds like a Muppet telling bad jokes to me...
August 7th, 2006, 05:33 PM
Eh... since I don't see any chance of winning on my first COW anyhow, and since I kind of sadly realized that I don't have time for this competion, I might as well post what I've come up with at this point. Perhaps it will scare someone off the line.
Here goes my entry: (Which I have requested to be disqualified, due to a change in the personal schedule, and a much bette entry within time-frame... see below)
August 7th, 2006, 05:56 PM
Hey MJ, I love the new avatar. Do you have it in high res? Also, can you moonwalk?
August 7th, 2006, 07:47 PM
Hee hee. Thanks SV. I dont have it in high res. I found it when doing reference research for a gig. It wasn't what I was looking for of course, but it was a keeper anyway. And following Fozzy's bad pun, it needed to become the avatar, naturally.
I cannot moonwalk. But I have worn moon boots, if that counts.
August 8th, 2006, 11:47 AM
Yes! I could find an extra day for this undertaking... I hereby disqualify my first entry, because it was too human-like, or boring (and will delete the post if necessary, on request), and now post something a little bit more... let's call it thorough.
I proudly present: THE PLANETARY ORBITER
August 8th, 2006, 12:06 PM
My first time participating I hope I do well.
Considering doing the thing that scares me most but doesn't harm me.
August 8th, 2006, 12:07 PM
I'm in too :D
Let's go !
August 8th, 2006, 12:42 PM
i'll be gettin' a sketch in this time. gotta keep it to line work/tone since i need to get my arse in gear for round 2 of LMS. ;)
August 8th, 2006, 01:12 PM
You made it to round 2, redehlert? Awesome. I'll have to look for your entry.
August 8th, 2006, 02:45 PM
yeah...thanks! lucky lucky.
here's a link to the image as posted in my cgsociety portfolio:
August 8th, 2006, 04:31 PM
Hey Cloister, your new entry sounds like it still could be very menacing. I mean, what is it doing orbiting our planet, for example. Telepatic abilities? Sounds like it might want to manipulate people. I don't know, if this is really a harmless creature....
I'm working on a creature that is large, thus scary. A blue whale is harmless to humans, but I'd still find it somewhat scary to swim next to one... Anyway, my creature will be sort of like a benevolent dragon...
August 8th, 2006, 04:59 PM
Sorry for that joke...and please change your avatar to something different, the cheap jokes should be enough you don't need to set visually a relation to MJ...i think it makes things worse ;)
August 8th, 2006, 05:05 PM
But I like my new avatar and so does Supervlieg. Michael Jackson as the Joker is brilliant!
I think I have to keep it just a little while longer. Sorry, but you brought it up.
If I find a picture of the king of pop with a big red comb and a polka dot scarf, I'll change it.
August 8th, 2006, 05:08 PM
ok, don't blame me, if someone will use your avatar as an entry then...:)...and sundance, my lawyers are activated going to kick your ass...
August 8th, 2006, 10:49 PM
Well...an update. Hope I finish by the deadline. Lots of work to finish up...
August 9th, 2006, 03:05 AM
Hey, Dragon4lunch, I'm glad my entry seems a bit menacing to you, that means it's working. A hovering gargantuan of uncertain powers... It kind of scared you, didn't it?... If you read the description close enough you should see that it merely makes use of the reflected sunlight, and I might add (strictly off the record) that it feels safe close to a greater body.
Then, I think you have certain misconceptions concerning dragons. Come on, we all know that there is no such thing as a benevolent dragon. They might at time act for the cause of "good", but harmless... I don't think so. Just because you ate a couple of them, doesn't mean they're nice. It means you're a bad mother! Anyway, I'm looking forward to your entry... good luck!
August 9th, 2006, 03:28 PM
He didn't know what he would find on the top of the mountain. The oracle had said to seek "The Tantalum". Was it a wise mountain spirit? After two days of exhausting climbing, with an entire day walking over icey rocks, Frederick could finally see the top through the blinding snow flakes: His heart stopped! Those weren't pointy snow-covered rocks, but a tremendous lizard-like creature!!! Was it his destiny to die today? Why did the oracle tell him to come here...
...carefully Frederick walked towards the creature, trusting it was a benevolent being.
Well, the Tantalum is a mythical creature, which doesn't move from the mountain top - it is huge, wise and peaceful - and even if it wanted to hurt you - it probably couldn't because it is too heavy.
I'm verry happy with the Tantalum - one of my favorite creatures so far. I'll still work on it some more. Want to make it beautiful!
And by the way, Frederick and the Tantalum actually ended up having a pleasant conversation, pointing our hero into the right direction and all that good stuff that usually happens when a hero meets a wise character.
August 9th, 2006, 05:59 PM
Great stuff there Dragon4lunch. The beast looks magnificient.
Maybe put some more work in the base of the mountain, the brushstrokes are a bit too obvious, and distract a bit. I would also suggest to add some blueish shadow on the ground where the little human is. And maybe a little more shadow on the lower neck of the beast.
August 9th, 2006, 06:06 PM
sweet work peeps! love your dude dragon4lunch.... dang i better get working on mine! :)
August 9th, 2006, 11:05 PM
Hi ppl, this is my first try in this weekly activity.
My understanding as being scary but harmless is that it must have a scary face, but doesnt have anything to attack(do harm), and maybe the design should reflect a peaceful and harmless nature. So with that in mind, I drew this...the corpse eater. will color it soon. : )
August 10th, 2006, 03:15 AM
scary creatures are the best kind :teeth: this was fun to draw...I don't usually finish pieces in one sitting (ADD?) but now it's 3 am and I'm done XD
Edit: thanks for the kind words everyone :) I'm glad you dig...
Mrs.Williams 1st grade class
My Dog Spike:
My dog Spike is a big dog I found in the woods behind our house last year. He was very scary at first but we became friends. She likes to play fetch and loves flowers. I have to keep her secret because my mommy and daddy says that dogs are too expensive and even though Spike only eats the trees in the woods they still said no. I don't think she would fit in our house anyway. She is very tall and wierd for a dog but me and Spike are best friends and we have lots of fun together.
hope that's okay, I'm fairly ignorant of how little people write their school assignments. XD
August 10th, 2006, 03:16 AM
I love your dragon, Dragon4lunch. It looks like Yoda returned as the Leguana-Minoutaur... No, seriously, I like it a lot. Particularly the face, is sensitively crafted - a surprising piece of fantasy dragon. Great work!
Truly a magnificent beast there, green Topaz... and the dreamy surroundings are great. If it wasn't for that heart, though, the story could be quite another one.
August 10th, 2006, 04:28 AM
green topaz - you don`t need one.
you got My vote.
August 10th, 2006, 06:53 AM
i'm trying to get this to a more finished version. if not....i'll edit it to be the final entry........
August 10th, 2006, 07:09 AM
J.Pan: Interesting creature - the two legs or arms give it a very unusual look. I think the hands need some work, before you color them though.
Supervlieg: Thanks for the points. Yes, I'm definitely not done yet. I'll update it several more times till Friday!
Green Topaz: That is a cute picture! The little girl is very cute and the colors of the environment and the hint of clouds there... cool! Love how you broke up the thin highlight on the creatuere's neck - it makes it look slimey and wet!
I updated the pic and will do so several more times...
August 10th, 2006, 09:57 AM
hey green topaz loved ur image soo much its now my wallpaper, love the concept:)
:uzi: :dead: :uzi2:
:uzi: :dead: :skull: :uzi2:
:uzi: :dead: :skull: :uzi2:
heh heh smilies=fun
August 10th, 2006, 10:24 AM
aaaaaaaaand green topaz for the win... >_<
August 10th, 2006, 11:44 AM
ho boy! topaz, that's lovely! reminds me of dixon's piece from a bit back, and i loved that one too. just adorable....
August 10th, 2006, 04:25 PM
GreenTopaz that is amazing! Every now and then I see a piece of art that causes me to spontaneously make a noise. This is one of them. It was a "heh-heh" or a "huh-huh" noise, I believe. A small chuckle in any case.
Anyway, I love everything about it, from the greenish sky to the yellow flowers to the reflections and highlights on the creature's slick hide to the creature's sweet expression. Excellent and touching piece. It'll take something pretty damn amazing to steal my vote from this.
August 10th, 2006, 06:01 PM
Bloody hell!! You can't be 17!? What a fantastic and sweet piece! I was going to enter until I saw your entry.
Wow! One tremendously talented young lady.
August 10th, 2006, 06:22 PM
GreenTopaz that's really beautiful I love the reflective lighting and slick look to the creature - I'm looking forward to the description.
August 11th, 2006, 02:48 AM
So here's my first try at a COW. I won't be able to beat green topaz's entry, but that doesn't mean that I can' post up my image to get feedback on my artwork, right?
This is a b/w sketch of the concept. I aim to have this colored by the Saturday deadline, but if time goes all funny on me and I can't, then I won't enter this.
Still in progress, but going with a slightly different angle and look. I think I've underestimated just how long this will take me to finish!
No time to sleep--must finish Gargothant!
August 11th, 2006, 03:15 AM
I'm posting this cuz I don't know how much longer we have for the deadline, but I'll update tomorrow since it's 3a.m. :P and I need sleep.. hoping to be able to polish it and finish the painting but if not this will do for the final.
This large odd creature species are nocturnal, they live in the darkness which adds to the frightening appearance of one when caught off gaurd..but what's more frightening is if one happens to find its way in your house late one night while your out for dinner. It's ok though because this species do not attack, they do not contain claws or a jaw, nor do they contain any teeth or other means for inflicting damage. They tend to keep to themselves and are a rather doscile species despite their horrific appearance.
The Proboscis Carc- are scavengers that much like a butterfly use a long thin tube like a straw to extract nutrients, this is called a Proboscis hense the name of the creature. The difference is that this creature uses this tube to suck blood from the carcasses of animals or humans. The bloody mangled look is due to the strange functionality of the species rolling around in a filthy smelling corpse, they use the Van der Waalls on their toes to basically create a magnetic force of tiny hair follicles gripping the walls, except this species walks and climbs walls upside down with their face turned backward. In a world in which this creature lives, it will cowardly run from any other species whether it be a rabbit or a human, they are quick and skittish yet frighten most of their adversaries through shear shock. To the animal world they are known as "The Living Dead" a cursed species and they are to be steered clear of since it's believed they bring a great dark plague within their blood stream, though this is only hear say and is not fact.
They resemble exactly what they eat..rotting flesh, blood and mangled anatomy, road kill and deceased bodies..the oddity of their limb structure and bone structure helps to disguise this creature among the carcass on which it feeds fooling most larger predators who would rather a fresh kill.
August 11th, 2006, 05:30 AM
Damn I feel inadequate posting after Mike : S
Great entries so far guys
A relative to ant eaters and termite eaters, these creatures can combine certain glandular secretions into a chemical mix similar to hydroquinone, which this takes the form of steamy smoke. They use this smoke to fumigate insect hills or hollow trees to force the insects out for easier feeding.
However, this has also another use, as a defense mechanism against predators. They can shape "smoke clouds" into certain forms to scare off potential predators. Their biggest threat, as with many species, are humans. It is unknown at this moment how they produce these images, though scientists suggest the possibility of a series of specialized muscles, as well as a keen learning through insight and memory.
August 11th, 2006, 07:30 AM
Oh man, Brokk, that is too funny!!! It's so cute an idea, it belongs into a children's book! The look on the turtle creature's face goes so well together with it's smoke cloud spewing mouth!
Obviously the smoke elements could use some work, but it's a cool entry!
Costeen, why is your dragon/monster wearing slippers?
August 11th, 2006, 12:27 PM
dragon4lunch: hey thanx for the tips, unfortunately I started doing it before i saw this XD... love ur moutain lizard! The scene as a whole just look magnificent!
GreenTopaz: really cool design and very well executed! like most ppl agreed, u deserve winning for this week! nice work!
MIKECORRIERO: scary ~~~~~
Finally I spent sometime colored it....rushed quite abit on the bg, ops forgot to modify the hands...so hope there's at least someone who likes it! : P
Yeah my final version
August 11th, 2006, 12:49 PM
MikeCorriero: Your entry here reminds me of Arthur Rackham, the guy who did the most famous illustrations of Alice in Wonderland. A somber pallette and thin black contour lines. On top of that, very "whimsical". I'm not all that sure what to make of the head nor the left rear foot.
GreenTopaz: You're hogging all the compliments :cheerleader: here, you're starting to "irk" me :sadcheerleader: :P
August 11th, 2006, 01:42 PM
Mike Corriero: While I really love your more finished pieces, this really rocks, too! The sketchiness works for me.
Green Topaz: That's just awesome! The rendering is really nice and the creature has a lot of personality. Love the little heart above his head.
dragon4lunch: This is a cool creature - the face is fantastic. The only very tiny complaint I have is that the monotone color scheme is working against you. I know it's a snow scene, but maybe you could liven it up a tad.
I miss my scanner a lot. Some day I'll get to participate again :(
August 11th, 2006, 02:45 PM
Fantastic work Green Topaz, I love everything about it. I was thinking about entering, I may do a last minute rush... but seeing yours makes me happy enough to just watch too :)
I really enjoyed yours too MikeC and Dragon.
August 11th, 2006, 03:33 PM
J.Pan- Thanks :P glad it comes off as scary
Dragon4lunch- cool I'll have to research that name when I get a chance since it doesn't ring a bell but sounds cool man. I ended up giving a size 2 stroke to the outline of the sketch and erased it in areas other than where the majority of shadow is controlled. The head was meant to be rather ambiguous to kind of add to the eeriness and scary effect, it doesn't contain eyes above the skin and the distorted look continues with the overall body shape...though that left foot bothers me too. I wanted to change it but something came up for a job so now I won't have time...unless I can get that quick touch up done tonight.
Bluefooted- ;) thanks yea I kinda liked it..but I always want to go overboard :P I at least wanted to just suggest a few more smooth and textured areas around the head and maybe faded toward the chest/upper body.
Stephan R - thanks man
Green topaz had my vote as soon as I saw it barring no one else submits something mind blowing.
August 11th, 2006, 07:26 PM
Topaz, that kicks ass! Great job!
I hope I get a chance before the deadline to whip something up for this. It's a great topic.
August 11th, 2006, 11:01 PM
Thanks dragon4lunch, I'm glad you liked it :) and I agree with your crit.
Some really great entries this round.
August 12th, 2006, 04:17 AM
Costeen[/B], why is your dragon/monster wearing slippers?
:P the dragon was captured by an old mean lady who didn't like him very much and as a punishment, she put him in a small room he couldn't escape from....but.................to keep the carpet clean, the old lady gave him a pair of her fluffy slippers!
August 12th, 2006, 04:23 AM
Green Topaz: Awesome work, really really really nailed it. You've got my vote, fo'sho.
Mike: Love the design, love the rendering. Though, it still seems like it might do some damage, not entirely harmless. The blood dragging by it's feet denotes danger. Love it anyway.
J Pan: I really liked your sketch, really cool design. A different spin on the harmless than what I imagined, very cool.
Really cool stuff all around, hope I can finish in time!
August 12th, 2006, 05:42 AM
It's been such a long time; don't know if im still welcome around these parts :P
First off, great pieces again by everyone. dragon4lunch. MIKECORRIERO, and GreenTopaz are the ones that stand out as kicking much ass.
Tlapewe: The Tlapewe is a plant-like creature that towards the end of its lifespan searches for the right spot of land to rest..(for a long time). The Tlapewe, after finding this spot, is unable to wake up from its slumber. There it will lay until its last day. However, this is not the most unfortunate aspect of this condition. It is said that its branches and roots take the form of its nightmares. Not the most inviting of sights to behold, the Tlapewe in slumber is often used by other creatures as habitat.
...don't know if it comes off as scary...but I had fun drawing it :)
August 12th, 2006, 07:08 AM
BlkCelebration: This is the best idea of them all so far!!! I really dig the idea of a creature turning into a tree stump like mass that deforms while in a deep sleep having nightmares! Great job! The colors are nicely applied as well, particularly the tree surface and the grass. If the picture was a little taller you could show some nice clouds in the background. Maybe even make the picture twice as tall and show the creature at the bottom right, with a moody background.
August 12th, 2006, 08:59 AM
Updated on page one. Great entries again this round.
August 12th, 2006, 09:29 AM
Cloister – the first is in my opinion much better – strong black and white painting and funny.
dragon4lunch – cool painting and I like the creature.
GreenTopaz – after your entry there is no point to post something, hehe….beautiful colors!
MikeC – nice to see you after the break….and the creature too :D
brokk – nice idea nad funny creature but maybe you could put some highlights on the shell or skin.
J.Pan – Interesting concept but maybe you could try to put some more colors – or color shades of colors you already have use.
Stephan_R – where is your entry? This topic was just made for you …and your sense of humor :D
BlkCelebration – I like colors and design….cool concept but I think the creature looks quite flat, but maybe I am wrong.
Supervlieg - BUhehehe….nice…..genitals :D…and funny entry :D
Here is main….I don’t know if it worth to post but I want to share with my idea. The design is…no, ok there is no design ..hehehe….just read the concept. BTW, I was thinking about the childhood. Usually children are afraid of many things that are harmless. Imagination, darkness, some light and you can see a monster in the trees or in the dark corner of your backyard.
GUARDIAN OF THE MARSH
These organisms lives on the marshes or other wet terrain which are plentiful of insects. They usually spend whole day closed, to protect their gentle body parts from the sun. They looks at that time like some kind of fungus that overgrow trees and rocks. When the dark falls, they open and start to glow. Bioluminescent light is luring the insects. When Gleamer catches the prey, he closes himself to etch the insect. After a while, he opens and wait for another prey.
"- Buuut I really saw th..he..eeemm, Mom! They where there with their bbb…iiig eyes…….They were watch...tching me! I was terrrr..rrrrified!....They wanted to eat me……they have wag with their arms and they have howl…..I was running as fast as I could…..but, THEY will not come here.. RIGHT…. Mom?
- Of course not, my dear…..go to your bed…and next time don't go alone on the marsh after the dusk…..Goodnight!"
August 12th, 2006, 09:51 AM
supervlieg... why oh why must u have a similar idea all of a sudden :dad:
I started sketching an hour ago, thinking no-one had yet done my idea... and when i check the page, theres my idea worked out waaaay better than i can ever do (and funnier)
Ah well, heres my sketch, but im not gonna finish it i think :nohope:
August 12th, 2006, 09:58 AM
Jakkas, that's giving me real flashbacks to my childhood. I was an anxious kid. In addition to being afraid of bugs, which I called gubs at the age of four (Mom, the gubs are getting me, the gubs are getting me.) I was also completely terrified of this boquet of peacock feathers my mom kept in a vase in the house. I was convinced they were magical eyes watching me.
Its a simple idea, but it really brings me back. Nice job.
August 12th, 2006, 11:21 AM
Stephan_R – where is your entry? This topic was just made for you …and your sense of humor :D
Great piece Jakkas, you're a master of all things creaturely. I just do the staring....
Supervlieg :O haha, genius!
Ya I finally got settled in :yayca: , on the new gig and only made time for an average character submission. I am ashamed! Thanks for the nudge I'll be on more often now. So is the cutoff midnight? THere's still hope Robin!
August 12th, 2006, 04:04 PM
Green Topaz - Damn.
Stephen R, are you going to submit an entry? I really like your humorous style creatures from the DSG.
August 12th, 2006, 05:46 PM
BlkCelebration- What an excellent idea! And elegantly drawn, too. I like the way it's in a peaceful setting with calm blues and greens. It really enforces the harmless aspect of it.
JakkaS- Once again, great idea and execution. The creature design is simple but effective. And since we're sharing what scared us as children, I'll tell you what scared me: a Valentines Day balloon. Yep. A heart shaped balloon. How is that scary? It was one of those balloons with flimsy paper arms and little cardboard hands and feet, so when I walked into a room I'd just see it slouching in a corner. Creepy.
Anyway, Supervlieg- My first thought when I saw your final was "Oh God." Testicle eyebrows, penis nose, and buttcheek eyes? Funny idea. How did a lemur get up to Ireland, though?
No entry from me this week. If you need me, I'll be over in the Photoshop tutorial section.
August 13th, 2006, 05:37 AM
The Gorlock are a race of creatures that live in the harmony of innocence. There are few that can see through their abominable appearances, and appreciate their gentle souls. When most adults looks upon the Gorlock, they see the twisted flesh, pulsing lumps and ghastly appendages. Most look and are horrified. Children, however, just see another friend to play with. The Gorlock are plainly aware of their appearances, and choose to live in well hidden underground warrens. They usually only venture outside in the evening, though they are known to call upon children if the child is lonely and are in the need of company. When the child is asked who they were playing with, most parents dismiss their response with "an imaginary friend." Unfortunately as children grow up, they find it harder and harder to look at the Gorlock without fear.
To most, it would seem the Gorlock's lives are a perpetual rollercoast of love and heartache. But let me assure you they are quite content simply existing as a Scary but Harmless creature.

Michael Jaecks, Stephan_R, Moai - Thx.
Children universe is complete different then universe their parents. :D Every one was afraid of something...for me it was a person who lived below the bridge, he had trained crocodiles, and his name was "Nowak" - now I think it is very funny because this name is very popular in Poland, hehe. BTW, I have many drawings of him, which I did when I was 3 or 4 years old.
