    Interesting... if I get some time, I may...just may... contribute. Been quite a number of weeks since my last attempt at a chow!

    I'm glad that you are liking this topic, I wanted something different from the futuristic and cyber settings, but of course you can also draw a futuristic fly breeder if you want

    Acro and Newman your ideas are excellent ! and this is a really nice Wip Newman
    I hope I'll be able to find some time to participate in this one.

    Fly Breeder wip

    Hey guys, here's my wip so far. Not sure if I'll have the time to get this one done but wanted to contribute at least a sketch. Trying so hard to resist images of jeff goldbloom in the FLY. So decided to do something without puss.

    Great idea mime! I'm going to try for this one... which will be my first entry in a CA.org competition. Because of this CHOW i know jeff goldblum's face is going to popping into my head randomly throughout the day! 8) (why there isnt a jeff goldblum smiley icon... is beyond me)

    EDIT:

    here's a WIP. The concept: A fly worshiping tribe out in the jungles bestows upon their king (The Fly Breeder) this great "crown". Before donning the helmet/crown - which is honeycombed with tiny, maggot filled tunnels - the king is first scalped. the flies feed and grow and feed and mate and so on until the king is "exhausted".
    The flies fly out of a hole in the front of the helmet.

    sheesh...

    ziet - that's.. very nice :o Ever read anything by George RR Martin? He has a short story that this reminds me of called House of the White Worm.

    and Jockemon - your big "EAT" sign with a flag cracks me up ;D

    Good luck on your entries everyone

    hello.

    this is my first chow... i liked the topic.
    i started the sketch right after work... i wasn't really in a thinking mood, so i just sketched out the first thing that came to mind.
    the result wasn't particularly clever or unique... but i had fun.
    the idea is that this guy is a serial killer. so, to the outside world, there seems to be no motive for his kills... but to him there is:
    to breed his flies of course.

    so there ya go. the fly breeder.

    i kinda feel like im done at the moment... but its still early, and im definitely open to suggestions. so let me have it.

    dierat: Thanks! I have read GRRM... but only A Game of Thrones (I'm about 50 pages from the end). I'll have to check that story out!
    hopefully I'll be able to do my idea justice. I'm not sure if want to do an image of him resisting (seen in above WIP) or one where he's more accepting of his fate/glory. dunno.

    Resisting!

    And for the record, I think Martin's short stories are better than SoIaF. They released a Rrretrospective called Dreamsongs that has a ton of his shorter works, but the book is seriously huge :/


    ikuru - awesome pic. I'm always amazed at how 3d those can look, even from this angle :o

    complete2,

    Very nice moody piece. Even before I read your explanation, I had that very same feel about your character.

    Though I truly believe that he breeds the flies personally. With a fly's dick, no wonder he's a serial killer! THAT'S the most frightening aspect of your illustration!

    *shudder!*

    OK!
    I'm completely new here....just started drawing 4 months back....before that i didn't even know how to draw a circle.....

    So here's my first attempt at CHOW....
    My concept is of a legendary waiter, famous for his friendship with flies.....It is said that he served the flies food as if he was serving the costumers at his restaraunt....This a sculpture in his memory......(kinda dumb concept. i know)
    first W.I.P...just a 2min sketch of whats on my mind....
    I hope I'm able to take it to the finish......
