    Concept: The Creeping Strangler



    Never has a name been more misleading. The Creeping Strangler has ever been a friend to humans. Let the Creeping Strangler into your house. Creeping Strangler nice. All other information on this charming woodland creature is a batch of cruel lies and propaganda manufactured by the government. Especially the myth that the Creeping Strangler knows how to type. Look, how could I possibly type with these striped purple feelers? Could I ever... err.. uhhh..

    So, in conclusion, bring a Creeping Strangler home today! They fit nicely into any crib next to any size baby. Order now and get a free snuggee!

    wissssssmiddddummumm glrrrrr glllrrrroouullllllll.... mmmmm huuumannnn...

    Artist: K0RR

    Concept: the smog eater
    The smog eater is a creature produced artificially in the laboratory. The smog eater is placed in large urban areas where pollution reaches the highest levels. The smog eater is blind and never leaves his support, it has an average life of 2 years who spends motionless, filtering contaminated air and giving back pure oxygen.
    It is estimated that in 2076 in the center of New York city, a colony of 600 smog eaters have contributed to 56% of the restoration of the default values of oxygen in the atmosphere.Attachment 775433

    The Phlex

    Artist: The Tim

    Concept: Phlex

    The few people living in the great swamp of Naratekh have great admiration for the way this creature combines business and pleasure.
    The Phlex uses it's large muscled extendable grappling hooks to climb from branch to branch, and once it has found a comfortable fishing spot, it will stay there, untill forced to seek another spot. This behaviour gives this creature it's musclular and strechted appearance. For all of his life, new 'arms' will sprout randomly from it's torso, which makes the climbing process even more comfortable. After death, it even remains hanging on the branches.
    It is not a lazy creature though, it simply needs to save it's strength. It relaxes its whole body, except for the tip of his long tongue, which is a fascinating piece of equipment. A Phlex's tonguetip contains more than 60% of all nerves in it's entire body! The creature simply jiggles the tip around a bit, and waits for fish to find out if that's food or just a predator. Then, only just the tiniest nibble sets off a major chemical reaction in the Phlex. A small electrical shock is emitted to have the fish flex his jaws, enough for the Phlex to 'wheel it in'. It will also flex every muscle in his body, including his 2 meter long tongue. Within a second, the Phlex has swallowed his prey. After that, it will show some late reflexes for about half a minute. Studies have made clear that this process shows many similarities in with an actual orgasm. This is probably the reason for the low amount of activity, because it will repeat this process four to seven times a day! The Phlex is not far from extinct, because sexual intercourse between two of them means giving up their perfect fishing spot, and at least the next three meals! Who would go through so much trouble?! Because the lack of it, there is little known about actual mating between these creatures, but we do know it involves the tongue. ieuw.
    Well, at least the Phlex is a happy masturbator..

    Artist: ZanteDeschia

    Concept: Karoote

    The Karoote lives in the sandrock quarry of Larata desert. It hangs on to what ever dead branches and sandrock that it can find and sleeps for up to three quarters of the day in order to conserve energy for preying. While it sleeps its day off looking like a "cute little animal" its third eye keeps its alert and senses anything that makes the slightest movement. Once the predator is at bay, the Karoote changes from a prey into a predator and predatates it in turn. They feed on anything from small insects to animals that are five times their size, If they are unable to prey on something, they would let go of the branch or sandrock drop to the ground and roll up into an almost inpenatreble shield formed by their scaley tough skin on the top, whilst its tail rattles to signal for help by possibly another nearby Karoote for help to team up against a big predator.

    For hunters & hungry dwellers of Larata: The easiest way to kill a Karoote is to shoot an arrow through its soft bottom part without getting close to it. *delicious when charr roasted*

    As they are lone creatures, they are rarely seen near one another unless during mating season, where easily up to ten Karootes are bunched up with each other trying to find their perfect mate.

    Artist: n1va

    Concept: Black Toothed Cave Dweller
    The infamous black-toothed cave dwellers are some of the most dangerous creatures one can encounter in a cave! Not only are they nearly invisible in their natural environment but they usually prefer to drop down on their prey from above. For their size these creatures extremely strong and can easily overwhelm grown men, but wost of all, their black-toothed bite is very poisonous. The toxin injected by the black teeth serves both as a tranquilizer to paralyze the prey, and immediately starts tenderizing soft tissues for consumption. There is one thing that tends to give these creatures away though, they are very slimy and if you’re careful you can spot the liquid pools of their excrement below their hiding places.

    Concept: Chill Whelk

    The Chill Whelk is a carnivorous creature found in caves in arctic regions. The Whelk directs melting ice to its back where the water is frozen into a "shell" of icicles. Once beneath, the Whelk falls upon its prey, impaling it. After eating, the Whelk uses the adapted ice-adhering fibers on its legs to return to the cave's ceiling to await its next meal.

    great entries so far , i have been meaning to submit an entry for COW for a while now , but recently i got permission from my game leader to be able to make creature concept art for the game which i could enter in COW

    so here is my entry , description is written on the image itself . good luck everyone

    [B]Artist: Vibhas Virwani

    Concept: alien world inhabitant

    Description :
    This creature is an amphibian and needs to be near water to survive . The ones
    which try to go too far may dry out if unable to reach back to their water habitat These
    creatures usually spend a significant time hanging upside down from which position they
    attack its prey from above . Usually choose a shaded place to avoid drying out too soon .The
    creature is usually found outside water either in caves or hanging upside down from a cliff
    rock face .they have tentacles with suction pores like that of an octopus which hold their
    body weight upside down they are a viscious species , which will normally eat whatever it has in
    range their main limitation is the planets recent drought phase has caused these creatures
    to retract their habitat . others avoid this hungry creature and therefore makes the canyons
    and fjords inaccessible very risky areas to traverse

    Vine Cat

    Artist: Crustibian

    Concept: The vine cat is neither a vine nor a cat. This affectionate little creature spends most of it’s life high in the tree tops of the Nufsed steam fog jungles. While courting, the vine cats offer each other various gifts- painted flowers, sugar fruits, and jewel pebbles are some of their favorites. They mate for life and the gift giving ritual extends to their offspring. They live in literal “family trees” with the oldest generation living highest in the tree. As the suns set, mated pairs and their offspring gather in hanging tentacle clusters where they sleep through the night.

    Artist: J.R. Barker

    Concept: Barnacle Beast

    This is a massive barnacle or mollusk-like creature that attaches itself to the ceilings of caves. While dormant, with their "head" pulled together and into it's lower shell, they can grow up to 15 feet long. Stretched out they are considerably longer. They can extend their greenish yellow tendrils in search of prey. These can then sense chemical and temperature changes in the air. The tendrils then grasp the prey and pull it into the creature's gaping maw.

    Artist: dwinbotp

    Concept: Obsidian Snatchers
    The mines on Asteroid 319 remain rich with precious crystals and energy laden minerals inside every blackened ore. It begs the question and raises quite a few eyebrows why no one has taken advantage of its abundant treasures. Some believe that many have attempted before yet only a handful of survivors can retell their horrific experiences beneath the deep caverns. Tales of sudden disappearances of fellow miners, shadows creeping and the faint scuttling of sinewy appendages all describe what now are widely known to the mining inhabitants of the asteroid as the "Obsidian Snatchers". Descriptions vary but they are said to cling to the black stalactites inside the mines. Many believe them to be harmless unless provoked or disturbed. Others believe they are just plain predators feeding on whomever and whatever that enters their nests. Huge compared to humans, they have sharp, rigid pincer-like appendages, easily able to cling upside-down and having a single muscular arm to grab unsuspecting prey, slowly feeding on it until its next victim presents themselves to it again.

    Artist: Mr--Jack

    Concept: Orange-Lipped Iris-beetle


    Iris-beetles are a highly varied genera despite their isolated range, being only found in a small area in the Brazilian Amazon. Not true beetles, these arthropods have large, segmented bodies and three sets of wings, the 3rd of which is solely used in their feeding—the beetles hang upside down, spreading their wings and opening their startlingly-coloured mouths and displaying a two sets of specially developed forelimbs to mimic a flower in bloom.
    There are a number of species, each having evolved to mimic a different species of flower.
    The Orange-Lipped Iris-beetle is the most common species to be found near human habitation, but by no means the most spectacular, and scientists believe that a large number of undescribed species still remain to be discovered.

    Artist: Soulweaver

    Concept: Neerok
    Neeroks are aquatic pterosaurs that spend their adult lives hanging upside-down from their buoyant, lily pad-shaped tails. From this odd position, they use their strong beaks to rustle up prey buried in the sandy riverbed. Larger neeroks are able to forage in deeper water, and thus they don't compete with smaller neeroks for food.

    Adult neeroks only leave the water to lay their eggs, similarly to sea turtles.

    Concept: snow-nimbler

    The Snow-Nimblers once swept across our nearest neighbouring planet; their thirst matched by their hunger and soon that planet turned to dust and buried nations.
    Only a few survived to search their star system for precious water and food.
    Hybernation has ended and the first of those few awakes and is hungry awakes as well...

    Artist: Ashamolly

    Concept: Face Eraser


    The Face Eraser is an alligator specialized for sewer life. Its back legs have evolved into hooks that allow it to hang on overhead pipes, where it spends its entire adult life. The lower jaw continually grows, forming a large, toothy spiral which it uses to maim and collect prey with a sweep of its head.

    Orb Eater COW 154

    The Orb Eater of Xnl-757 is an alien creature that feeds on Orb's, a defenseless life form also found on the same planet. Orb's are mysterious life forms that are mostly energy based and are contained in a strange thin membrane. The Orb Eater catches this prey while hanging upside down in dark places while it emits its own low pulsing energy as a sort of bait. These hiding spots also protect it from predators.

    There are very small and very reactive crystals embedded inside the Orb Eaters waste. These crystals are highly valuable. Once one has aquired enough of these crystals they can be combined through an industrial process. Once fused together these crystals can be used to charge and power an assortment of weapons platforms. The Orb Eater is now farmed and grown in laboratories for this very purpose.

    soulweaver also got my vote, other faves include Mr.Jack's and dwinbotp's but overall soulweaver's entry was very fresh, concept and overall execution just deserved it.

    Once again, some really great stuff here. It was a hard choice, but I had to vote for dwinbotp. It seems like we were both on a similar track with our respective compositions. But I just really love his rendering style.

    Tough vote. I love Crustibian's whimsical vine cats. Mr--Jack's iris-beetles are so comical and full of life. K0RR's smog eater has tons of character, and reminds me of a creature from Ghostbusters (a good thing!). Dwinbotp's obsidian snatcher is easily the creepiest of the bunch, a real nightmarish design (also a good thing ). And ashamolly's face eraser is just ace; I love everything from the creature's design to the wonderful slick and grimy texture.

    It came down to Mr--Jack and ashamolly for me, but the concept behind the iris-beetles helped give them the edge.

    I voted for soulweaver for the originality and would say Mr--Jack came a very close second! Nice work guys.

    *Edit* Not sure I agree with Mordus trying to "encourage" folk to vote for soulweaver. Every one can make up their own minds based on the quality of the work without that sort of thing and if I had read the post first, I might have been swayed to vote for Mr--Jack instead.

    Great stuff all around. I voted for Steve Somers.
    Steve Somers: Great creepy creature artwork. The funny description is the extra bit that pushed the creeping strangler to get my vote this week.
    Korr: Nice original concept. I think the skin looks great. I can imagine how soft and mushy and gross it feels.
    The Tim: Good colors to capture the look of a swampy morning. I like seeing another phlex in the background of the composition and the idea that they remain hanging after they die is great. It reminds me of a tree by my house that was covered in shedded (is that a word?) cicada skins, all still grasping the trunk.
    ZanteDeschia: Cool concept. I think it would be cool to see a karoote roll into a ball while still hanging from it’s muscular tail. Then it could get swinging and bash it’s prey/predator like a wrecking ball.
    N1va: I like the realistic, scary look and just a hint of a cartoon/comedic look with the potbelly and popping eyes. I really like this one. Nice work.
    evolvingeye: Nice unique looking creature. Ten arthropodic legs? Six tongues? Blue and white bird-mammal body and head? Sounds like a chill whelk. I really like that it hasn’t evolved a spiky back but instead it developed a way to “grow” icicles as a tool. Really cool idea.
    vibhas virwani: Great colors on this creature especially the tentacles. Nice work.
    J.R. Barker: This is a really scary looking creature! Nicely rendered. Good job all around.
    dwinbotp: Cool action shot that still shows off the creature. I like the brightness at the cave’s entrance but I would maybe lose some of the highlights on the right side of the creature. Another favorite. Great work.
    Mr—Jack: Wonderful! Cool concept. Great colors and composition and skillfully rendered. Love it.
    Soulweaver: This is great! I really love your style. I like how much information there is without it looking cluttered. Well thought-out and skillfully executed. Very nice work.
    Lkjhgfdsa: Adding the goat(which is a lovely little piece on it’s own) really shows the scale of this nasty creature. Good idea adding so many legs—it makes it so much creepier than the standard eight of a spider.
    ashamolly: Another favorite. I’m glad you were able to combine your sketches for this composition. Seeing two angles really shows this creature off. Very nice atmosphere. I want a movie made about these creatures. Get on that.
    AcidSev: Cool concept. I like the simple graphic look of the background and lab jar. I think it would look neat to incorporate that style into the creature. The rendering of your creature looks good. In my opinion, though, I think the two styles clash a bit.

    I voted for Steve Somers and his Creeping Strangler, his creature has something odd I like, I can't understand how its arms twist around its legs but it work well!

    My vote goes to ashamolly I like the mood in his piece, and the aligator-something else thingy is also a cool idea.
