    artist: Lege1
    concept:

    The Guts Harvester is a parasitical type of species that resides in the swamp land areas of Earth. The creature is an Amphibious being meaning that it can dwell in both water, or on land. The head of the creature is leech like and it bears a snorkel like protrusion from it's nose that it uses to suck up guts from the pouch of its stomach where the guts are stored. The Gut Harvesters long neck enables it to bury its entire head inside of its stomach while it feeds on the stored guts. The stomach of the Gut Harvester is sack like and has a both type orphice that sucks the guts in and stores them inside of its pouch which is like a giant sack of shyt. The Gut Harvester has humanoid arms and hands that act as tools for cutting in to its prey and stuffing the entrailments in to its mouth. The arms are also a major part of how the Gut Harvester transports itself. It uses the knife like feelers to dig in to the ground and drag itself forward. The mid torso of the Gut Harvesters body has gills on it as with its tail being a powerful swimming device. The creature typically only comes on land to feed and it tends to always retreat back to the water after establishing its prey. When in the water the Gut Harvester balls up and sinks to the deep, murky, cold bottom of whatever lake it may be residing in and digests its meal as the contents rot in its stomach. MMMMmmm good....

    concept:
    Bileturdin Gutmunchers
    The Bileturdin Gutmunchers' perverse eating habits begin by capturing and playing with their prey much like a cat plays with a mouse before the kill. The Gutmuncher will corral, poke and prod its victim, forcing it to run back and forth, for up to 30 minutes before feeding. Then, almost without warning, the Gutmuncher picks up its prey and eviscerates it with one quick swipe of its long fingered claws. Quickly, the Gutmuncher consumes the stomach, intestines, and contents and then discards the rest of the carcass. This disgusting display of feeding and waste seems on its surface extraordinarily sadistic, but it is actually motivated by biological need. The Gutmunchers own gastrointestinal tract is weak, lacking many of the enzymes and bacteria needed to break down complex protiens, fats and carbohydrates. Additionally, keeping its meal alive and physically active before feeding increases its prey's metabolism, ensuring the entrails and its contents are something the Gutmuncher can digest.

    concept:
    Boranus
    The stocky, sluggish Boranuses are scavengers. They have an extremely keen sense of smell, and they can pick up senses of death or near death from miles away. Boranus feeds mainly on already dead animals, as they travel through misty forest lands, looking for carrions. They'll sometimes drive away smaller predators and steal their kills. Boranuses use the giant claws on their forelimbs to quickly dismantle the carcass then swallow the smaller parts whole. Like many other scavengers, they'll eat anything they find, but prefer internal organs. Boranuses dine happily on their favorite item--manure-filled intestines, which most predators shy away from.

    concept:
    Nekhete Avaros
    These 2 metres long predator lives near the lakes on the dry super continent of the Khaand planet. Water is a place where the food of Nekhete Avaros lives. It is rare amphibian, which skin is extremely poisonous. This is the reason why the creature eats only guts of its victim. Nature gave to this animal very sharp teeth, perfect sight and strong legs which makes it absolutely effective hunter.

    artist: Woodlandwalker
    concept:

    Another little known scavenger that has turned up recently has been given the nickname the “Guts Harvester”. These little creatures come out after large predators have gone, or preferably if an animal has died recently… then you will see them by the dozens to come out and feed. It would seem that these vicious scissor-jawed vermin are a distant cousin to the chipmunk but with long rat like tail for balance. They have specially designed jaws that are able to slice large amounts of what could only be considered the choicest of innards. Cheek pouches are then used that hold more than three times its own weight in food. The Guts Harvesters then take their prize back to their nests where they create pungent piles for their young, letting the meat rot sufficiently before being consumed.

    artist: Cloister
    concept:

    While the imperial legion normally refers to this creature as the Orc-Bull, the dark armies themselves have nicknamed it the Guts Harvester. On the battlefield it runs with great speed, removing infantry and cavalry alike, before the hosts of charging orcs. Not seldomly the masters dress this beast in the entrails and guts of its victims. It is said that the smell of such a garb infuriates the Orc-Bull even further.
    The red wart-like growth upon the head can only be found on the males, and is thought to serve as a signal in times of mating, and as a hierarchal symbol amongst the male creatures. No records exist of Guts Harvesters ever sighted outside orc company, but the species is known to be very old.

    artist: Hopsy
    concept:

    This species specialized for the hunting of the humans. Humans are spread wordwide, easy to kill them, and their guts are rich in nutritives, good food for the Guts Harvester. It is not an alien, the evolution produced it. First appeared in the XXVIII.th century. They are taking a big part in the exterminate of the humanity.

    artist: timothee
    concept:

    The Guts Harvestor lives in swampland, waiting for a host to prey upon. The creature usually enters the body through any orifice it can crawl through as a larvae. Once inside, it cacoons itself against the intestinal wall of the host. When it becomes mature, it creeps out of it's cacoon and begins feeding on it's victim's guts. A human can usually tell if it has been infected by the creature by a continuous piercing pain felt in the stomach area. Once the creature has gorged itself on guts, it will expell itself through the anus, a most uncomfortable pain to the host. As soon as it is out of the body, the guts harvestor will lay it's eggs(the creature is a hermaphrodite) and go into hibernation for half the year. And then the cylce begins again.

    concept:
    Scavenging Ratmole - Rattus Rattus Talpa
    This distant cousin of the sloth was known as one of the most ugly creatures in the animal kingdom. It was fiercely prosecuted throughout its existence and it is now believed to be extinct. The Scavenging Ratmole has a hairless head with long neck, enabling him to get to those hard to reach intestens with the greatest of ease. The ratmole is quite large, roughly the size of a big pig.
    Because of its slightly humanoid facial features it was in old times believed to be a failed version of a human. That its haunced way of moving about looked like a person walking on hands and knees strengthened these beliefs. It has caused many nightmares among the superstitious and though it is mostly harmless, it is among the most feared animals.

    concept:

    This corpulent bastard makes not only a meal, but a home, from the entrails it collects. When rations run out, a brief starvation renders it lean enough to go a-huntin once again.

    concept:

    This nasty mammal lives entirely on a diet of entrails and intestines. It uses its large tusk like teeth to disembowel its prey and to scoop up the bounty...It's jaws can unhinge to store as much as possible. When its finished harvesting its often returns to a secret location to eat his meal in peace. The Gut Harvester can take down prey but is more often than not, a scavenger.

    not accepted entries:

    All WIPs/sketches/not finished yet/placeholder/yaddayaddayadda images...AND (if not mentioned further) all entries which didn't pass the quality check


    Gorromog
    Sorry, but the creatures body must be shown fully or at least in a way that people can judge the design/anatomy...

    kevin mayle
    You need to work on details and be more accurate with your lines and brush strokes...also think about design and function. Your creature actually is only an ordinary spider...make something unique, think about the concept and your work will improve



    close to rejection:

    rubberman
    Very cool entry (as your first one)...i nearly decided to reject your piece, since your creature actually rips out the fetus. You wrote that it also takes some guts, but basically the concept is about a fetus ripping creature....but well, your quality won over my objectivity this time



    special note:

    Supervlieg
    on the fast lane this time eh? Well, but who can resist your gorgeous artwork...i ahd to take it

    Thanks for the advice. My vote went for Michael Jaecks because I found it to be the most unique and technically sound. It was a hard choice though because there were a lot of really strong entries.

    Really nice entries all around. Some of my favs:
    mjolnir- sweet render and strong design.
    cloister- very creepy and intimidating creature.
    longshao- I love the mood in the piece.
    MJ- really dynamic and original creature.
    vegasmike- I voted for yours cuz the creature design is really nice. It has alot of character, and I just think it looked the most disturbing of all the pieces.

    i shouldn't have cropped it that much... anyways, i voted for Woodlandwalker because his fits the description of the guts harvester the best, under my opinion. second would have been Cloisters, and third MJ's.
