    Thanx to Tyrus for this sweet topic

    ADDITIONAL INFO

    1. Add at least one coconut or parts of it, so viewers can see the creatures relation to the nut(s).

    2. No individual/character!!! Make a concept of a species!

    n.
    1. The act or sound of crunching.

    Desviaciion, 1 is alright but I like 2 a little better. I'd like to see it a bit bigger.

    Oh and here is a beginning of my creature. No coconuts yet, I know. They'll be here eventually.

    first entry

    hey guys, this is my first post to the forum!
    iv looked at the daily sketch groups n that, n iv made attempts that never made it onto the thread.

    but anyway, this COW interested me, so i've come up with an idea, just wondering if i could get some feedback.

    basically its like a relative to either llamas or giraffes, with long neck n bulgy eyes. but it has developed big fat molars and premolars, as the islands it inhabits are rich with coconuts, n pretty much nothing else. it also has a crop to store the milky froot.

    anyway, feedback very much appreciated!!

    Influences:

    Patrick Woodroffe,
    Brandon Boyd,
    Todd Macfarlane,
    Gerald Scarfe, Ralph Steadman and Ronald Searle,
    Banksy,
    and Stan Lee.

    I think that idea is pretty awesome. You should try it, and see what comes out of it. ^ ^

    wipper.

    has evolved to ram coconut trees, shaking that sweet milk loose. jaw is used for crunching nuts and it has a very thick skull.

    any thoughts are welcome.

    Fun topic. Some good ideas come to mind.

    Goat: Cool beastie, but I think he may need some manner of lips if he evolved around crunching coconuts with his mouth.

    goat: I think it looks really good so far , but imo would look better if the molars are visible.
    tyrus:I'm guessing the head is for ramming right ? maybe would work better if it bulged out , kinda like this:

    just my 2 cents.

    Already started adding more stuff on my #1 choice btw :p

    Tyrus - cool idea, looks good.

    Desviaciion - pleased to see you went with 1, I like it.

    Goat - Another snazzy lay out. Youve been turning out really good stuff recently, I look forward to seeing how this comes out.

    RayTwicket - Its a great start. Try and blend in some darker tones into the body because you have used black for the eyes and horns on the head, so unless you want them to stand out alot, you will need to spread some of that dark tone value arond the creature.


    I doubt I'll finish this one, although would like too.
    Turtle Head, (dung?) beatle antlers, armadilo body, shrimp tail, crab claws = ... coconut cruncher!

    Dope topic! Definitely fits my neck of the woods. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with for this one. Mike Jaecks and Corriero I hope you guys get down on this one, same goes for Jakkas, Art Eater, and Cloister.

    wip. I hope its not to simular to Desviaciion's. It's an angry oversized hamster-like-rodent that collects coconuts from the ground, then cracks them open.. ^^!

    I'm a bit confused about the definition, can it also be a coconut crusher that next crunches the pieces?

    Tommoy, its technically up to Fozzy on that one, but I think so long as it crunches it at some point its all right.

    Wow Tommoy , your design is looking real badass. It's like something that would fit really well in the Star Wars universe XD !

    Tyrus: then it crushes the nut with its 4 teeth and then crunches the parts within its mouth (not visible).
    Desviaciion, yes it's family of the Rancor (thanks wikipedia) and of my avatar

    Saurus, make its head smaller, or body bigger. It looks disproportionate.

    RayTwicket, maybe make his head a little darker so the horns blend in, and maybe give him a little less personality. He sort of looks like he has a human expression.
