    Hmm odd, my latest post didn't seem to register and bump this...I'll upload more art and see if it works this time.

    A compilation of all my WIPs:

    C.O.W. 151 (My first win )
    Common Name: Yellow-Ringed Lancehead
    Scientific Name : Lanceacephalous maculates
    Planet of Origin: Zianovis
    Environment: Rocky Deserts

    Yellow-Ringed Lanceheads are most easily distinguished from other species of Lanceheads by the yellow spots and rings on their body. However, being close enough to the animal to see these spots may be dangerous.

    This species hatches from round, tennis ball sized eggs. The eggs of this species are a mottled grey-brown that blends in with the surrounding rocky environment. Eggs are very tough and rubbery and incredibly impact resistant because they must survive the fall from their mother’s perching place, near the top of a cliff, to the cliff’s base.

    Hatchlings instinctively move away from the cliff base that they hatched around. Females will remain roaming predators for a year, after a year their bodies will begin to expand and they will search for a suitable cliff to make their permanent home. Once settled in, their primary means of hunting will be their swollen bioluminescent bodies. Many native creatures are attracted to the beautiful blue light; when a victim gets within the Lancehead’s range she will fire one of the harpoon like structures on her head. These harpoons contain venom that will paralyze impaled victims within seconds. Once paralyzed the Lancehead is free to reel the victim back in and ingest it at her leisure.

    Male Lanceheads remain slim, agile, wandering predators for the rest of their lives, when they sense the presence of a female they carefully make their way to the top of her cliff, however they must be especially careful that they are not mistaken for prey.

    C.O.W. 152

    Scientific Name: Demipondus pravus
    Common Name: Tongarian Devil
    Planet of Origin: Tongar 10
    Environment: Numerous Locations

    These creatures were first discovered when colonists started mining Tongar 10. The Tongarian Devils lived in a series of caves buried deep bellow the surface. When the colonists accidentally unearthed these horrid creatures they swarmed the surface, devastated the ecosystem and killed many innocent lives. Although only half a pound, and small enough to hold in one’s hand the Tongarian Devils are dangerous because they attack in large numbers. A pack of twenty can consume a human in less than ten minutes Their powerful jaws and teeth not only allowed them to easily chew through bone but also to gnaw through walls, doors, and pipes to get to terrified colonists. Only a handful of colonists could be rescued from these pint-sized terrors, and since then Tongar 10 has been designated a restricted planet. Although some may argue that these creatures were merely acting according to instinct and as such are not truly evil the survivors of the horrible incident, and those who lost family members to the Tongarian Devils will tell you differently.

    I gotta commend your portal guardian - really stunning creature, and the background is fantastic (you clearly put as much effort in to it as the creature, and it really makes the image stand out). Love your harpy fella to, great work!

    You have some really cool concepts for the COW. The colours you used for the guardian really give a very heavenly feel. How do you start when you need to select the colours, do you browse between existing palettes or just kind of "go with the flow"? You really have a very good eye for it

    Wilko: Thanks!

    picksel: Thanks.

    Lav: I'm still experimenting with colors so a lot of it is sort of going with the flow and seeing what works, for that particular picture I did search through references for sunset colors. I also find that the first colors I put down usually don't quite look right so I'll go into hue and saturation and play around with that till it works. I'll also put a color gradient over the top of my picture and play with the opacity till the colors look right to me. Hope that answers your question!

    Kaoki: thanks!

    Lakka: Thank you, will do!

    xbert: Thank you, yeah I'm still really happy with 151 too, I see a couple errors now though, should probably go back in and fix those.


    No finished work for today, you guys will have to deal with scribbles, but I felt like updating, and this IS a SKETCHbook. Must remember that myself.

    A few preliminary designs for this weeks COW, we're suppose to design a creature with flower-like features.

    And I felt like drawing something sexy...but I'm not sure if it turned out that well, it's not exactly the type of thing I draw often.
