    C.O.W. - #100: Creature Festival!!!

    COW - Creature Of the Week 100th round
    Creature Festival

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    INTRODUCTION
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    100 rounds of COW! Time to honour this old Lady with an event which is doing justice to all the work, effort, creativity and fun hundreds of artists had so far with this activity.

    Thousands of new species were created. Enough to build up a complete new world with an unique fauna. Enough to show how much you can reach when you just keep drawing. The key for new worlds is in your mind and in your hands. Never forget this!

    Doing 1 creature would hardly do justice to an activity which started 2 years and 8 months ago with 99 rounds of pure creativity and passion to creatures.

    So the solution was as simple as perfect:
    100 creatures!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    - creature themes
    Choose from a pool of different themes (like underwater, herbivore, insects, predator etc) and draw 10 creatures for each theme = total of 100 creatures. The themes will be posted when the kick-off date has come, so no one can cheat in starting before

    - design:
    Make designs which are obviously creatures, stay away from mechanical, industrial and human-like stuff!!!
    No interacting creatures! If so make sure, that the creatures are seen fully, not mixing up the shapes

    Edited to be less of an annoyed outburst: I think all pertinent questions have been answered quite clearly in Fozzy's post. If you have a question, just reread the rules and guidelines a bit more carefully. Pretty much every question has already been answered several times, in this thread and in several others.
