    ADDITIONAL INFO

    1. In the concept there must be a reasonable relation to christmas time, of course the nightmare part must be implemented

    2. No relation to the Tim Burton movie

    3. No individual/character!

    I don't know if I should start on this and scrap my Medusa drawing. Argh! I'm so confused! I want to enter all contest but it's impossible! As soon as you enter one, another pops up. :/

    Oh well, we'll see if I enter it or not. I hope I will.

    Rudolph immediately came to mind, so...some bone-plated mammal/reptile that lives in the frozen North and hunts Snow Faeries for food via its glowing red tongue?
    oh, here's my sketchbook.

    Also, my website. It would get beat up in a fight.

    Well after school gets out, I'll have a lot of free time. Maybe I'll make something that'll get brought to the poll this time.

    Those are really cool ideas. I am trying to think of something unique to do since Rudolph is going to be a good start for a lot of people. Maybe an evil Christmas tree dweller... However, Rudolph might be too good to pass up here!

    I'm leaning away from the Rudolph idea toward more of a hulking red and white beast with sharp teeth (maybe antlers though). There's a great idea in my head, I just haven't put it on paper yet. It'll have to be (at least mostly) traditional pencil art, seeing as how I won't be anywhere near a computer for the next 4 or 5 days.

    Exclamation Rains of hyphons in a sea of hope!!

    A suggestion here, free to anyone who hasn't already thought of it It'd be interesting to see what ungodly creature the image of santa was based on. Was he a humanised cave painting of a christmas-dwelling daemon, or perhaps a character in a long-lost folk tale wo had to be re-designed to be kiddy-safe?

    Lol, let it be known that i might have a go, but it doesn't look likely.

    Tried to combine the inconspicous with the dangerous. Rendered the creature large and kept it large to make it easier to examine. Kept the saturation low so that the tree would fall further into the background.

    Im sure he was based on an actual character, st nicolas. but im not sure which country though, either one of the northern europe or scandinavian countries. Also up until around the 1940-50s he used to have a green coat, until coca-cola decided to change it. Actualy i think the beginning of santa clause- the movie is a pretty acurate discription of how he's supose to have been

    I just watched the history of Christmas on the History Channel. Apparently the whole modern day holiday we celebrate can be broken down to the work of an illustrator working for Coca-Cola, and a poem being printed throughout the newspapers of our country. Thus proving Pop Culture is the real god.

    -FINAL VERSION-

    C.O.W. - #104: Nightmare Before Christmas

    Species - Rudeer

    This animal has been talked about in fairytales
    this shortned story sums it up i guess.

    You thought santa's deers are just normal creatures, well... guess again..
    Santa hates unhappy people, so he decided something needed to be done
    So he got himself some Rudeers.. they have a very nice ability that normal deers dont have
    In the nights before Christmas they head out into the world, they visit all the people in the world.
    They enter the bedrooms and lean over the sleeping people.
    Than their chest opens up and they suck up all the nightmares people have...
    This is they way these guys eat... Nasty huh?

    Well anywayz

    Finally going to attempt COW after such a long absence - i'd been too afraid to enter after my previous entries..haha..anyway here goes:

    C.O.W. - #104: Nightmare Before Christmas

    OK So here is an update - not the greatest rendered piece in the world but it'll do for now I think.

    CONCEPT: Nightmare Pine - The Nightmare Pine spends one whole year 'acting' as a tree; and come a few nights before Christmas, it will begin to uproot itself from the earth. After emerging, it spends its time chasing and terrorizing the animals of the forest in which it sprung to life.
