    This is my first COW entry, so please let me know if I'm doing this wrong.
    The challenge is really fun. I'll try to follow more COW in the future so maybe one day I'll be able to come up with creature art as beautiful as some long-term followers of COW

    Concept: Refined Gem: Feathered Desert Runner by JakkaS


    This creature lives on frigid northern deserts. It almost never stops moving except when they feed. There are rumors that they run even in their sleep. When threatened, however, they tend to become aggressive rather than evasive. Their clawed feet make them formidable foes for any predators.


    I've always marveled at the simple wisdom of this creature. I often stop to watch it charging headfirst into the future, its eyes wild with joy. Truly, no other soul in this world can leave fears and doubts behind quite so fast.

    I wanted to change some more things based on crits I received, but I just broke my collarbone yesterday, and am not up to trying right now...

    Concept: Refined Gem:Crustacean Shark Eater #60 after mysticaldonkey1

    The Crustacean Shark Eater lives in the deep sea where it looks above to spot the sillouhette of it's favorite prey. This crustacean predator feeds entirely on shark and it uses stored calcium deposits to form razor sharp teeth that regenerate much like fingernails. The shark eater spots its victim and races towards the surface catching the shark by surprise in its trap like claws. With the shark in it's grasp the crustacean predator is free do dine at it's leisure or devour the prey in one or two large bites.

    It's been a long time... work isn't really admitting me to do these challenges anymore, but I'm tired of that. So here you go, and hopefully they keep coming! It's a much needed investment of time, since doing any challenge boosts your skills!

    Artist: Piru

    Concept: Arbraticus Ptolemaus after Giant Tree Eater #87 designed by Moai

    The Arbraticus Ptolemaus is a long extinct dinosaur. Little is know aobut it. The only thing that's certain about this creature is that it was "built" to devour trees.
    The long neck and it's 6 (presumably) extremely fast working stomaches prove this. Thanks to it's very heavy bone structure in the lower body it is able to sustain the weight of the neck, which is calculated to be able to hold a small chestnut trunk.

    Concept: Feathered Desert Runner #2 created by Longshao
    She has trained them in the art of running in this dangerous environment as best her instinct would allow. She nervously scans the horizon, always ready to bolt as her offspring wrestle in the hot sand unaware that their most difficult trial is about to come. In this harsh place, it is definitely survival of the fittest, and the fastest.

    Thanks to Longshao for the awesome inspiration.

    Ohh my first finished piece for COW!

    Note: Description will follow!

    C.O.W. - #101: Refined Gem 4500 Carat - Voting!

    Artist: Rist

    Concept: Purple Tentacle Creature created by archipelago


    The Archipelago hops from one coastal rock to the next, always searching for his next grub. The way he captures his grub is quite simple, he tongue lashes it, sticking the grub to his slimy sticky stretchy tongue. Just life a frog, this creature has strong hops, but with the ability to move at great speeds in order to race the waves back to shore.

    Sometimes, just sometimes, he would stare at the fly, just stare, not move a muscle...or whatever he is made out of. And then...he would tipple over with cramp.

    He dwells within a cave that was once a hole that a child made while on holiday. Sometimes, just sometimes, a crab kicks him out, taking the hole for himself.

    Sadly the Archipelago is made for camouflage at night, as a nocturnal creature. However our Archipelago is afraid of the dark and insist on staying awake during the day and sleeping at night. This cause much head ache, well aches all over, as he is in plain sight for predictors, and these creatures are vicious!

    Poor Archipelago!

    Concept: Feathered Desert Runner

    Due to these strange desert creatures only just being discovered by western civilisation, they haven't even got a proper name for them, but the local tribes living out here in this waistland call them simply LEGS, They are highly carnivourous and often become scavengerous and even canibalistic due to the harshness of the terrain they live in. Legs can often be seen running around in large swarms during the summer, at their breeding season. Only the females have a feathered crest on they head, the males are totaly bald, this being the only obvious difference between them. Often the female can be seen running hours on end, being chased by the 30-40 males in pursuit.

    Concept: Giant Tree Eater 08 by EricT


    Crunch...crunch....a loud, slow chewing sound can be heard in the valley in the Fall. The Giant Tree Eater peacefully eats tons of bark and leaves to gain weight before curling into hibernation for Winter...but it will be back next year

    Concept: Bilemaw, Plague Dragon 035 by peter_john

    Bilemaws are a foul species of dragon that some believe to be responsible for virulent outbreaks of plague. They exude an awful nauseating smell from their mouths and through vents along their necks. Usually the stink may signal the arrival of a bilemaw to the wary. While unpleasant, breathing the stench given off from a bilemaw isn't lethal. The real danger of dealing with bilemaws results from their foul dripping mouths. While flying overhead cities and villages their jaws will drip infectious gobs of offal, literally causing a rain of plague. Anyone unfortunate enough to be bitten by a bilemaw and escape will soon find their body rife with infection. Any attempt by the victim to seek refuge and relief among their friends and family will sadly result in the spread of the plague.

    Concept: Feathered Desert Runner 060 by Lander

    The Feathertail is as harmless as it may sound if you have someone to save you. Residing in blistering, mountain deserts, Feathertails use their tail to block the sun to remain cool. Their tail also plays a vital part to balance it's massive body when grazing the plains for food. Their total absence of teeth forces them to swallow their prey in one bite, or rather it would be one mouth full.
    Locals have found much sport in the Feathertail by luring them with tasty treats, including themselves. It's a test of endurance, and bravery. The one who runs the greatest distance is the winner. They usually pray on everything that can fit between their jaws. And when a competitor is consumed, the Event Organizer tranquilizes the beast and the sportsman gets rescued by being yanked out the same way he came in. The massive amount of drool makes a body suit a necessity and a fashion statement.

    Concept: Red Face, Arctic firehead #14 by James Wolf


    They are seldom seen, but some of the braver (or more boastful) hunters tell stories about their encounters with the red face. They tell of times when blizzards caught them in the ice fields, and when they believed they would never see their kin again, a scarlet-glowing apparition would loom up out of the white gale and lead them back to their own hearths. Some however claim that these mysterious saviours, which are also reverenced as a totem beast and reincarnation of the elders, act on strange whims and will take a man in whose heart they see a sin of some kind to the wastes of the far north and beyond the aurora, where the spirits of the damned dwell.
