Confection #1 - Evolution`s Misfits. ~open to all~
Hello boys and girls.
This here challenge is a nice and fun designing exercise I had the pleasure of running for quite a while now at another CG forum.
The rules are simple enough, and the possibilities are Endless (well, no. not really, but the possibilities are quite vast...)
in a nutshell -
We give you 2 animals - you combine them into 1. you got about a week.
sounds easy, right? well, yeah. if you go the tomato route.
but keeping it unique and somewhat fresh is harder than one might think.
anyone who feel like giving it a go - is more than welcomed.
come the deadline - a public poll will determine our winner.
confection #1 :
deadline : Feb 21th, Thursday.
that`s it basically. if the response is good, we`ll do another one.
good luck ppl,

sounds similer to a job i had myself a few years ago, which was very fun. If i get time early next week i'll try and join in, though it may only be a quick b&w sketch if thats ok. Makes you wonder though, if these 2 animals did happen to find a way to breed, how big would the young be, could turn out to be an extremly large hairy toad with antlers, that should keep the french happy

Alright, here's my take on the Toadeer. For some reason I kept getting weird flashbacks of growing up in rural Tennessee.

Tony thats so cool!, simmilair to mine but way better executed hehe, u may wanna look at the placement of the hind legs on the ground.. cause with the frog joints, the should be further a part i guess, looks rather awkward now
loving the details in this

ho very cool guys.
Tony - excellent work. I really like the textures and bumps on that beast.
joey - it seems like an interesting creature, I just can`t see much of it.
maybe it`s the light and shade, or maybe it`s the size of the image. dunno.
hope to see more entries `till deadline.

thanks guys! Joey - Yeah the legs do look awkward. I was going for a massive body on spindle like legs, so you get the new born calf wobble. I figured in a swampy environment it would use the legs to move around deeper water but rarely use them to hold up all its weight. You're right though... I think the placement of the far back leg could have been better. Maybe picked up out of the water in motion. Thanks for the comments guys!

Hi, I hope you don't mind if I join in.
Here is a WIP of my toadeer so far.
(I thought I was being clever by giving it a deer head and a frog body but I see muffin wrangler beat me to it. Ah well.)
