    Lander: Great idea and execution. Got my vote.

    Apocalypse Rex: You were my second vote. I like the idea and the image. Reminds me of a Siberian Displacer Beast.

    my presentation this time was especially poor i'm afraid, i had a real struggle with the beauty part - it ended up affecting the whole thing, sadly.

    Jull got my vote, such elegance and prettiness.

    good work all who finished, its such a nice weekly project to be involved in, thank you to all who take time to critique me etc. it really will help me get better.

    My vote out to Michael Jaecks. I really like how you portrayed the process of what your creature goes through when it morphs although it was a tad bit simple. Awesome art as always, really no complaints. Keep wreckin man!

    Lander: Your art is definitely on point but it was your concept that wowed me on this one. When I read your concept I started really wondering in my head what kind of dreams you have if you even dream at all,lol. No offense, but some people don't remember their dreams. Kick ass stuff though.

    hey kevin, well...it was monday night...it was late...and carl and i were drinkin' wine, havin' cheese and crackers and berries (sounds oddly romantic, but we didn't get our freak on.) hahahahaa! long story short, carl's constant work on his piece made me want to dive in. perhaps i will enter these every so often to keep the mind going.

    cheers!

    Wow. You all really took it a little further for this round. There were many impressive entries, but in the end I ended up voting for Michael Jaecks. His Beauty isn't as beautiful as some of the others, but I had to give him my vote simply because I am absolutely floored by how much his artistry has matured with his recent CoW entries. MJ, your sense of color and your skill at rendering have progressed lightyears since I've joined this site. Kudos to you!
    Anyway, it's kind of neat that I can imagine now imagine many of you guys' faces when I read your posts.

    My vote went to Jull, for what I thought was the cleverest concept, which was delightfully, and effectively, portrayed in his matched images. More power to you for the think-work involved!

    Some notable mentions go to banhatin for absolutely delicious colour work, Michael Jaecks for great texture work, redehlert for chasing that abstract concept so far, and to Lander for bringing us the concept of decorative bowels...

    ---

    This was a bloody hard one to vote on, some really good design work here. One common theme I saw here amongst the entries I didn't vote for, was that they missed the brief onmaking the uglies (in my opinion, anyway). I know that's kind of a backhanded compliment, sorry about that.

    On the question of missing the brief for the beauties, I like that there's been some solid discussion of subjectivity here. My thoughts are that beauty in animals is often related to *movement*, and I'm sorry I didn't have the time to explore this with you the rest of you. Graceful and powerful movement is pretty much what defines deer, cats, dolphins, eagles, horses and so many of the other animals we tend to think of as beautiful. Conversely immobility, flaccidity, helplessness and parisitism tend to give a feeling of distaste - lamprey, leech, naked molerat or hagfish anyone?

    All of this is good fuel for later design work. Very happy with this thread.

    Interesting points about animal beauty, Xol... jellyfish can look gorgeous in the water and hideous on the beach, for instance.

    Yeah, so can dolphins.

    I'm not denying that other stuff can look beautiful - frankly I think trying to pin it down to one ideal is as pointless an activity as trying to define what is 'fun'. I just wanted to make the point that graceful movement and the physical adaptations engendered by it (streamlining, flexibility, musculature, etc) are a form of beauty that not many entries really addressed. Just about everyone went for sheer gorgeosity - shimmering plumage, colourful markings, eye catching crests, iridescent skin, and so on.

    It's just my thoughts, no harm intended.

    Short comments and vote -
    southern (great silhouettes)
    Miasmamann (love the ones under ground!)
    Nightblue (the contrast between the ugly and the beautiful)
    My vote goes to Lander; Great concept briliantly executed. Very nice colours and the expression/body position of the alien meal made me laugh.

    Great work everyone thou!
    Keep up. Or something...
    All for now.
