    C.O.W. - #112: Stilt Stalker - Voting!

    Artist: Latimer

    Concept: Stilt-Stalker
    The stilt-stalker is a peaceful creature, despite the horrendous look of its beak & its stark name. They live in flat areas with only the lightest grass - it feels good on their feet.
    Their feet absorb nutrients from the earth, whilst they feed on plant material & the occasional bird with their beak.
    The stilt-stalker has never been known to attack a human despite actually 'stalking' them, hence the name. Scientists believe the creature is just curious, & wants to learn more about man-kind.

    Artist: Kmadden

    Concept: Stilt-Stalker

    There are many variations of this creature, each one adapted to its own particular environment. This particular example has evolved to survive in a forest setting. Its stilts and head, both cracked and hardened, have the look and texture of tree bark, allowing it to hide amongst the undergrowth, it's underbelly and tail buried under the earth, waiting for an unsuspecting mammal to walk past. To protect it from hunters and fellow stilt-stalkers, these creatures have evolved a hardened exo-skeleton on its underbelly preventing any sharp spears from penetrating into its internal organs...

    C.O.W. - #112: Stilt Stalker - Voting!

    Artist: Warmll

    Concept: The Stilt Stalker
    The stilt stalker is a vicious creature. Standing at 25 feet tall, it hunts its prey with great speed and terrifying vigor. When it catches up to its prey, it quickly tramples it to death with its overdeveloped claws. It then uses its long tongue to pick up the carcass to eat it, much like an elephant uses its trunk. However, this unique species is endangered. Man has come to value its stilt like claws for its crystal like beauty and its medicinal qualities. They are slowly being hunted toward extinction...

    Artist: Mike Corriero
    Concept: Wavering Stiffle Stump
    The Giants though slow and seemingly docile are quick to snatch smaller unsuspecting prey. They stalk in a wavering and swaying like motion, letting the breeze of the wind and the bow of the surrounding forrest keep its true form hidden in nature. Above the tree tops covered by the thick forests it lurks through, these giants distinguishing features are concealed. They often move hundreds of feet before anything realizes they're alive unless they pass through an opening break in the dense leaf covered canopy making their upper body visible to the little creatures below.
    Their bodies are stiff and firm and coated in moss, mushrooms and vegetation. They contain no toes, only stump-like feet and strong long legs that mimic the tree trunks it walks among. It's a patient hunter like most predators and can often sit around for days before it will strike or find the right meal. Their eye socket is quite complex, leading to the back of the head through a canal of bone that gives off a type of higher 360 extra sensory visual perception. This allows the giants to see in front, side and back of them (with the minds eye) without the need to move their necks and head much.
    When food is targeted the Stiffle Stump will ease its way within reach to quickly grasp what it can in its branch mangled fingers trapping the prey in a cage of limbs. Now the giant can indulge and reach down with its long neck to feast on its catch for the day. They can go weeks surviving on a single kill and when food is scarce or their in need of nourishment they draw energy from nutrients in the earths soil like any "true" tree. The soles of their feet are soft and moist allowing the Wavering Stiffle Stump to repeatedly stamp its legs until it buries them into the soil to suck up whatever water and food it can. Elder Siffle Stumps are found lying still, rooted deep in the earths surface slowing dying off as they live their remaining months off of the water and nutrients in the surrounding soil, until it runs dry. They die a slow but peaceful death and the once brilliant greens and color fade from their bodies leaving a dried up faint memory of their existence as they become a part of the vast growing forest they once roamed.

    Artist: Joey-b

    Concept: Laelm


    This Creature Lives in the desert, The tentacles attached to his face are sensors to detect living creatures, also they have to ability to stun like a jellyfish does. These are very important since it has no eye sight. Also he doesnt really need the eye sight because there arent many obstacles in the sandy dunes of the desert. Most of the time it eats small insects wich live in the desert sand.
    the creatures just whirls its tentacles around the victim, it gets stunned so it wont get away, and then he'll slowly consume it

    The first time this creature was discovered it kept following the humans around every where they go, the cause of this is that the sensor like tentacles detected life (the humans around him), luckely this creature is very slow so people can get away easily

    Artist: Zyphryus

    Concept: Dreamtime Stilt-Stalker

    Much like a totem animal, this creature visits in dreams, to bring along an important message. The message is only known by the one who dreams it. Perhaps it is a warning of hard times ahead, or a great victory, or both. Whatever the sign/message is, its profound and life-changeing.

    Concept: Stilt Stalker
    These big creatures originaly living in swamps on the planet S-36X. Natives domesticated them thousands years ago and used them to hunt in the deadly swamps. Nothing has changed since that time, but technical upgrades, which allow the "pilot" to control stalker at all.

    Concept: The Stilt Stalker

    You will not go to sleep tonight.

    our Moon of Blood is rising at the west, and not everything is peaceful and at rest,
    hush all children, quite dear infant, still
    you will not go to sleep tonight.
    Up on high amidst clouds daubing, this nightmare goliath`s head is bobbing,
    Long legs unseen, just shrieking silent, and
    You will not go to sleep tonight.
    Thin hollow eyes all six a glow, the smothered air moves all too slow,
    This moon at west, we`ll never rest, and
    Never go to sleep tonight.

    ( Taken from “Stilt-Stalkers, and other HearSay” by Norman John Miller.)

    Artist: Ramitxon

    Concept: Giant Crocodile Muncher

    In the deep forests of Congo, they say there lives a gigantic creature that walks on long legs almost as stilts. This creature is the giant Forest Wildbeest, one of the few cases on nature where a known herbivore has turned fully a meat eater. Evolution has turned this once peaceful ungulate to use its sharp as knives hooves to slay his favourite prey, giant nile crocodiles, which are unable to escape due to their short legs. It's difficult to see because being so tall a creature, usually overtops the trees, hiding its great bulk over the forest canopy.

    Artist: Phade

    Concept: Stilt Stalker

    The Stilt Stalker is a large creature that lives on open planes. It searches the fields with its huge eyes and when the stilt stalker localizes his prey, he can keep stalking them for hours until they finally jump up to the prey to devour it.
