    Confection #7- Evolution`s Misfits. ~open to all~

    Hello boys and girls, once again.

    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 #7:
    Confection #7- Evolution`s Misfits. ~open to all~

    deadline : Aug 11, Monday.

    please post your final entry here, via an outside image host.

    that`s it basically.

    good luck ppl,
    cheers.

    Pat.

    that`s an african water bufallo.
    (pictures are just a point of ref, though. you`re all invited to research them animals yourselves, guys and dolls.)

    gnahz, that's cool =) The 2 animals combine nicely and create something that looks like a real creature (and also reminds me a little of a ROUS ), the back-neck-head area especially works for me. I suggest paying some more attention to the legs: the combination of bull and rodent anatomy works well, but the muscles and joints can use some more reference and thought.

    I second that. Really great combo of the two animals.

    Okay, yes, I do realize that neither shrews nor buffalo have naked pink tails, but I just had to carry my pink theme to the back end of the animal, 'k?

    Oh, also...I totally didn't draw that background. I'm way too lazy. It's a clump of moss I nicked off the internet with the cutout filter applied to it. I have to figure out that custom brush thing, so I can be lazy in a more socially-approved way.

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    Oh, shoot. I'm sorry. I didn't notice the "outside image host" thing. I'll have to wait until I get home.

    Just out of curiosity -- how come some of the community activities want outside hosting and some want attachments?

    Breistift - your shrewfallow is very well done...looks rather saddened, though.

    Chuck,mate - interesting; your ashrewffalom seems to be Africa's answer to the Giant Ground Sloths.

    Stoat - your pink (since there's no filename) is novel...almost creodont in how it seems to combine two modes of locomotion (2- and 4-legged)

    I'm going to guess that it's at home in the wetlands, eating nothing but fruit off tree branches.

    neat!
