    @Golden Yak: Using lure is quite a nice idea. I wish I had thought of that!

    Here's my WIP

    Would anyone be able to advice me on the colour mood and the readibility in general? The colour is quite lackbuster and I don't think my painting has good readibility at all...

    Master Pete - I like that idea, it's a funny twist. As far as color advice I wouldn't worry about that until you have a solid drawing. Right now the Unicorn is structurally confusing, so you might want to track down some horse references, and then get a friend (or yourself) to pose as though they just had their skull poked by a big horn. An action pose like that is hard to convey if action poses aren't your thing. Another thought is to have the unicorn just standing there with the satyr hanging limp and dead from the horn. Then, as far as color is concerned, start with less color or black and white and do color adjust layers to experiment with mood. There's also some helpful threads on this in the Critique WIP thread.

    Mark T- #4 looks both threatening and unique. #5 feels like it would be from the same genre as Satyrs... the bullhorns.. meh... Sweet sketch though, has a lot of energy can't wait to see how it develops.

    Mark Tarrisse: Those are some awesome sketches. I don't think you could go wrong with any of them, but my favorites are four and six.

    Hopefully I will be able to work on this piece soon. Im trying to use a new style, but it could just turn out a mess, so fingers crossed.

    Calibrations worries...

    Hey guys (and gals) ... I am having monitor calibration woes. When I viewed my final piece at home it looked fine. but When I viewed it at work it looked washed out. So after much calibration on my home monitor I have re-adjusted the levels to where they look right (now) at home. So can you look at the two images below and tell if the first looks washed out and the second looks proper? If that's not what you see please tell me.

    And please... if you have any tips for calibration please pass them to me. I am fairly new to digital (used to do traditional work) and this has been an ongoing issue.

    Also... can I replace my final in the "finals" thread with the corrected image? I posted from home and didn't see the problem until I got to work.

    My vote would be for 3 or 4... something very feral about the eyes and snouts on those. Really nice work.

    @MasterPete - great idea dude, I've never trusted unicorns or anything unicorn-like.

    @Vaghauk - the lure is all part of the critter. I thought it was funnier that way. It does seem a little large in comparison to the rest of the creature though... he'll have to be made larger!

    jspangler: that's how i see it. the above image looked slightly washed out. while the below one has more color contrast. but the tone is fine in both image.
    i dont know if you are able to replace the image you posted in the finals, as i never post anything for the cow. but i think you'll get to the poll whether you replace it or not. It's a cool creature design and it's among my favorites for the topic. Good luck!
    I'm making mess here: Sketchbook .
    also on dA and tumblr
    Old sketchbook, in case anyone interested.

    Time to take my first baby steps into the world of COWs. Interesting topic, thought I'd try my hand at this one.

    Put together some initial sketches - when I thought of "Satyr Slayers" I immediately thought of a race of beasts that were unimaginably cruel and harbored a deep, deep hatred for Satyrs because they felt Satyrs were a mockery of beast kind due to their half-human/half-beast nature. SO, I tried to think of things that would look like they would try to find Satyrs and literally rip them in half at the waist in order to make their point.

    My initial thoughts were between a vile cobra looking thing and a huge ominous looking bunny bear hybrid thing. Also making it into the fray was a Satyr Slayer who "Slays" Satyrs with HUMOUR! AAAAH HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!....

    So many cool looking entries in this thread! I have wanted to take a shot at joining in a COW for quite a while. I'm hoping to have the time to finish over the weekend.
