    ADDITIONAL INFO

    1. The Waterfall Queen is a species, which exists in or next to waterfalls.

    2. What is it, that this species can only be found at waterfalls?

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

    Definetly got my brain really cooking on this one, this may take some thought before I really start finalizing something out....a couple things that do pop into mind is since it has the title queen it should be a bit "showy/ regal" in a way and maybe utilizes the constant flow of water to catch its food...

    I'm new. -obviously- I want to make sure that the design that I have created for this COW is alright (as this is the first submission I've put up on here, ever). I was looking through the rules and I was worried that it was too "human-like." Also, apologies in advanced for the pure crappy picture that it is. I was rushing to get it on my computer... D":

    C.O.W. - #125: Waterfall Queen

    Again, sorry about the crappy quality. I will post a much better one for other WIPs, promise. x)

    I don't know Dragonic, can't tell right now if it is too human like, but it does seem to be bipedal....it's up in the air....

    @ DragonicFlames, the picture quality is pretty low, but it looks like you've got some drapery in there. IMO Clothing tends to designate a creature as an individual; but it's up to you.

    That aside, I like the frill/webbed ridge-thing on the head, very remnicant of a crown.

    Perhaps I'll rethink the cloth (cause yeah that's what it was). I was thinking about it myself, like why would they have something like that? I dunno. I was going for like a gown-ish feel.

    And yes the picture quality is horrible. D":

    Hey Rist. Thanks!

    If you mean the sigh on the image ....it's probably from a texture from this site: http://www.mayang.com/textures/

    Btw, another update:

    I guess so! I thought it was some strange promoting or signature that would make sure art thieves would not call it their own!

    The update is coming along great. I was going to mention that pure black you was using, but it seems you have got it under check after all. Its a very strange species with no real indication of reality (ie. eyes, teeth, hair, etc). BUT, that's what makes it real alien!

    Great colors and movement JakkaS, I really can't wait to see the finished piece. The concept is really really interesting and the creature still captures and elegant, regal look.

    Thought I'd throw up one of the thumbnails I have in my head for this, it's a neat enough idea to not pass up.

    Hmm... a few of the sketches posted so far are similar to ideas that I was playing with. Back to the drawing board.

    Verehin, great creature so far. The head is very nice, i love the bones connected to it. Good stuff...
    I only would take some care with the hands/feet, i don't know if they are strong enough to hold it... and on the drawing they seem a little bit to flexed to be holding the creature... Anyway, great concept!

    Hi all, heres a little idea iv had.

    It lives around waterfalls and is able to cling to the
    rocks using the suckers on its strong tale and underside.

    This chap grazes on algae and moss like organisms which grow around waterfalls. He is also able to catch smaller insectoid life forms.

    Well, I didn't see any "No DF, too human like," so I went a head with it. :"D Changed a bit of stuff around, and at least the quality is about five times better than the other picture, still shaded weird where I've accidentally smudged things.

    And I hate all of you for having your pieces already colored. >/ Lol. All of you. Hate. :"P

    RonHundred, I like the one on the left, but I like the one at the top the best because of the little action it does. XD

    Alas:

    C.O.W. - #125: Waterfall Queen

    My picture of shame. x"D I wonder, is it Ok to have an example of what I'm talking about when I explain what the digits/feet design is for (IE the thing in the background). Or would that be too much for the picture? I really haven't seen that many COWs with multiple pictures of the species.

    A basic anatomy of the beast sketch (5mins). This beastie uses it's long tail and strong hind legs to rappel down waterfalls to a good position for it to snap up any birds or insects that fly within reach.

    More of an idea sketch than a proper drawing so crits on form would b preferred, but i dont really mind
