    Round #140

    Topic:
    Six Legged Steed from the Future!

    Creature Description: Six Legged Steed from the Future! Design a new, six legged alien creature from the future that can be ridden by a humanoid or other simillarly shaped character. For this round you MAY include the rider and accessories necessary for riding (saddle, straps, etc). However, the focus in your piece MUST be the creature. Remember, CREATURES are members of a species. Not individuals. I'm most interested in seeing some interesting anatomy solutions. You concept/story is important, but what I am really after is seeing folks push their skills rendering anatomy, bone, muscle, balance, weight, proportion and so forth.

    Deadline:
    Wednesday, 22 April 2009




    note: The deadline won't be EXACTLY after a week...it can last up to 24 hours more, i am human and have to work also, you know

    might do this, i'm feeling creatures more than characters, very intimidating scary to post anything one question: if it's from future, will there be metal parts on the creature? and happy birthday to you sir, love your works on deviantart

    Hey lwhuang: Thanks for the b-day wishes and the looky on DA. It always seems to be the easiest way to show folks the newest work, even with a regular website...

    Scary? I remember that feeling of being intimidated with my first posts. Just post anyway. As George Clooney's Army captian character states in the movie Three Kings : "You do the thing you're afraid of, and then you get the courage. Should be the other way around, but it's not." Just grab that COW by the horns and show her who is boss.

    Metal parts on the creature. Good point. Let's steer clear of cybernetic attachments and implants that don't serve a purpose other than looking cool. I want a cool alien. If the accessories required to make it a 'steed' (something one can ride) look a little Borg-ish, I'll allow it. But let's not try things like making two of the six legs robotic additions or anything. I want to see cool looking six legged aliens that are ridden by humanoids.

    This new round brings me joy.

    I was just fantasizing about something like this in math class the other day, how odd. You must be telepathic, MJ. Thats the only plausible explanation.

    LOL. I tend to write up little art briefs and save them away several at a time, and then pull from that.

    What monster am I thinking of now, Sperling?

    I'm thinking horse / insect, six legged instantly makes me think bug.

    Can my final be accepted if it's just on paper, then scanned?

    Hmmmm, loads of ideas for this week, gotta go find my sketchpad!

    Well this is my thought for it so far. I figure its front legs would be for stablization and movement at low speeds on steep/slippery surfaces due to them being able to double as hands. So, more of a dangerous terrain kind of critter. I think it needs a bit more of an alien feeling to it though, so will have to work on that...

    Onyx Serpent, I like that idea of the front legs being for more specific movement. I was thinking along the lines of a grasshopper for one of my ideas. Where the back legs are for high speed, explosive movement whereas the front are for more intricate, controlled movement.

    Red face Question

    Hi, this may sound like a stupid question, but I was wondering, do you mean steed as of this (horse). or more like a working animal (like a donkey that pulls a wagon), because I looked for it on the internet and I saw this two meanings (I am not a native english speaker ).

    And by the way, happy birthday Michael Jaecks .
