    Wiggers: thanks man! Don't know if I'm going with them for this round. I'm not sure if they would fit the profile of a satyr killer... but then again, who knows? (I'm going with the middle, cowish looking one) but I do like their design.. might just have to work on them too, just to see what they look like all done up

    just so i have the idea out there: my creature's related to the siren bird and lures drunk satyrs by mimicking(sp?) a naked,dancing woman with her front.

    Carnifex - if you don't have a scanner right now maybe try a digital camera, might give you some unexpected line blurs and texture, I had to do that before and it worked in a cool way.

    Not sure about the goofy arms on my guy here, but I like the colors and background so far.

    I'm having a blast so far... adding hollow horns to the "Piping Prowler" to give him some distance on his mimic pan flute lure.

    Also really enjoying seeing what people are coming up with... can't wait to see the finished pieces.

    One question though - do we place the black titled border around the final or is that done somehow when it's posted?

    jspangler it's something you add to the final piece, however it doesn't have to be the general black border. Allow yourself some creativity make sure to have the required information though.

    The Oxalian WIP

    This is my first entry on ConceptArt, I'm a bit nervous because I know only the best get in.

    Species : Oxaliantennarii (from the families Antennariidae Oxalidales)

    My idea is taking from that the satyrs are forest dwelling creatures, funilly somewhat similar to JaderGader.

    Except that my creature is similar characteristics to a frog and fish, it's natural camouflage is moss and it's tough and bumpy bark hide.

    The Oxalian has a lure which resembles fruit to lure land dwellers, then consuming them whole, leaving no traces of the creature past.

    Peace Love Brown Rice. -Red < 3

    Looking good everyone! I'll comment more thoroughly later but Im going to post this WIP really quick before I head out.

    I thought "Satyr Slayers" could be the nickname vintners gave to a working class animal they used to keep in vineyards to protect maturing crops of grapes for wine harvesting. The animals would run through the grapevines and flush out booze-loving satyrs in coordination to each other. It would almost always end in the death of the satyrs due to their drunken stumbling...

    Anyway, I'm still working on this design a bit and Im thinking about pushing toward a more reptilian sort of look. Still working out the tails. Thought they could be held up high to signal to the vintner as to where the animals were in the crops. ..? Just thought I'd share for now....

    leonorekitty : nice idea - but if the satyrs like to drink booze for sure they would go for the vine-cellars and not for the grapes...but they love grapes anyway - that´s true.... the creature is very good.
    joshdartist : very nice ! I like the lightning you gave to this !
    1oshuart : careful with the human - rule -- looks a bit like somebody in a costume with a doll on his back....you could try to melt the feminine figure more in the pinguins body....
    Mordus :that drawing is awesome !! is it chinese ink or digital ?

    jaunay , that probably won't go to the poll. i mean it's a nice portrait and all,but it doesn't really show us anything of the character,without the description we wouldn't know anything about where it lives or what the rest of him looks like. we need to see atleast 3/4ths of his body. just thought i'd let you know.

    wip, trying to decide whether or nor to keep the rave tattoo things, technically they are accesories but they could also be bio-luminescent symbiotic algae,
    hah could get away with it. :3
    if not i guess i'll have to add some other coloured bitty to balance the colour pallette.
    oh yah and those black shapes r gunna be some dead satyrs or summin ^^

    the description is something along the lines of:
    the ent:
    a sad creature, the ent, an evolutionary fuck up caused its entire species to have the maturity of a child.
    as such whenever they notice satyr's partying, dancing and drunken debauchery they rush to join, however the satyr are a fearful people and believe the ent to be a barbarian race thus they try to kill it. the ent enraged and confused fights back, easily killing the satyr's with its predators body further adding to the fear and hate surrounding its kind.
    such are the known: satyr slayers
    their weak minds not understanding the concept of death try to party on with the corpses
    or sum such funk

    defiled visions: luving ure colour pallette
    lkjhgfdsa: original, satyr slayers doesnt bring that to mind
    lenorekitty: cant wait to see it finished, ure satyr designs pretty damn good too

    This is true and some of them try, but they all fail. Some can get away with stealing overripe and fermented grapes used for making dessert wines. In the final writing Ill probably say they try to raid cellars though...makes more sense... thanks!

    Here are some of my quick sketches.
    The first one is like a giant demon goat/bear that lures its prey close with the wine smelling grapes on it's tail.
    C.O.W. #160 -- Satyr Slayer -- Posting WIPs Thread
    The second is like a flightless demon bat that lurks in the trees above the satyrs, waiting for the moment to pounce and devour its head.

    a very long-lived and ever-growing creature. once it reaches adulthood it plants itself in rocky terrain with camouflaged stony tentacles, sitting and waiting for prey. every few decades or so a miniature version of the original creature breaks off from one of the bigger tentacles and wanders off to start its own life. when they finally die they simply turn into and enrich the surrounding territory.
    i think it might be fun if the complex and muscular lure in the back of its throat can exude different kinds of pheromones and be flexed into the silhouettes of different kinds of shapes, and maybe the creature itself can mimic mating calls that are amplified by its cavernous maw.

    Duman - Watch out with the proportions, In the first image, the foot to the right is smaller than the one to the left, while they should be the same given the pose he is in. Have them on the same level too, it'll give him a more solid pose.
    For the second pic only thing I noticed is his teeth, those to the left are lying down.
    Hope it helps

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    WOW!!! awesome WIPs guys!!!
    lkjhgfdsa: I prefer the top image, with less color saturation and less background information.... my eye can view the creature in it's entirety a lot better...

    DefiledVisions: loving the face... pretty friggin wicked

    Steve Somers: wonderful progression from the early stages... loving the wings

    Allright, so I rushed this! instead of compromising 7 hours of work into one day I'd love to work on it smaller periods over the weekend, however I'm going away so couldn't.
    Final version ready

    Dunno if I'll have the time this weekend to do a finished version, but I thought this COW was a neat idea and it got me doodling. Here's a b/w version of the resulting beastie:

    C.O.W. #160 -- Satyr Slayer -- Posting WIPs Thread

    Variation on the classic angler-fish gambit. Actually wound up being similar to Jaunay's concept, but with a slightly different 'lure'.

    More enticing 'fruit,' if you will.

    You might say it's a 'naked nymph,' in fact.

    golden yak : nice beasty ! the drawing is really nice - i somehow find the lure a bit to big though -is it a real women which the beast catches to use it as a lure or is it somehow part of his body ? guess it´s the second ...don´t know why but i find it a bit strange- an angler fish also just got a tiny light.... hm, you allready tried different lures ? - like grapes...or a bottle of whine....just some ideas..
