    Round #160 Satyr Slayer!

    Topic:
    Satyr Slayer!

    Satyr Slayer-- A Satyr Slayer is a creature that slays Satyrs. I'll post a pic for those who are not familliar with the word. The Satyr Slayer should probably look like it inhabits an environment where Satyrs would dwell. Mostly they live in forests, woodlands and grassy glens. Satyrs are fairly pleasant creatures on the whole. Given to hunting with bow and arrows, playing the pan flute, drinking too much, getting rowdy, and knocking boots. (Or in their case -- hooves.) The Satyr Slayer should probably look pretty mean. Bit of a killjoy, perhaps. Maybe they get irritated because Satyrs always look like they're having such a good time.

    Deadline:
    Monday November 16th!!! New Deadline!!! 2009


    Finals go here: http://="http://www.conceptart.org/f...d.php?t=172973

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

    This is a Satyr I illustrated for Paizo Publishing's Pathfinder RPG Bestiary released last month. Your monster should look like it would give a guy like this guy a world of hurt before giving him the big dirt nap. Satyr Sadist? Satyr Slayer? Say Sadistic Satyr Slayer three times fast!

    Michael Jaecks: With skillz like that, you should make some creatures of your own and participate with us for a change!

    I think Im going to go the demon/monster route this time. The backstory also allows for some pretty unique scenes to unfold around this week's creature.
    Fun stuff!

    What about a devilish opposite to the Satyr? A dark twin eternally seeking its Satyr nemesis to silence them.

    haha we all think the same? I thought how the satyr is half human half goat, and how the slayer also would be part goat, part something.. having some kind of grudge against these more civilised relatives.


    edit, added sketch
    basic idea: satyrs, the favored child of some god - the gods younger brother jealous, also wanted to bring creatures to life, not allowed, in anger started experimenting on the earlier satyrs.. the older brother unaware, kept shaping them, giving them a more humanlike appearance over time while the younger one twisted the captured ones into madness, mutating limbs and bodies - lives only to kill the favored children.

    Couple WIPS. Like 20 30 minutes work so far. Just kind of getting some ideas down, not sure on a few things. Will probably work a couple more ideas as well once I see where this one is going.

    Cool topic! I recall we got some quality entries for the Unicorn Hunter topic some time back, so I hope this topic really sparks people's imaginations too.

    some thumbnails. all are based on the idea of creatures using lures and pheromones to lure naughty satyrs.

    Well I'm definitely no good at creature design, but DefiledVisions sparked a quick doodle with his cool mythos idea. Pardon the bad anatomy and ugly lines... maybe some one can expand on it?

    hey bad painter - that´s quite a nice drawing - why you put yourself down ?? if you had fun doing it i don´t see why you think it´s not good.... you always learn with your errors - and even use them to create your own and unic style.
    good to be humble ! but no need to exagerate !!!
    if you draw that well your painting skills can´t be that bad - i like the thick lines and the anatomy is ok for a quick doodle -c´mon show us some more of this !
    (anyway i don´t know if m.j. let us team up for this challange....)
    ....
    okay ! i just visited your crappy sketchbook ----- you are really an bad painter ! an badass one ! Now i feel like stupid .
    So , think what you want about your own skills, nobody really cares- let others the chance to decide on their own.That you write "bad" on top of it doesn´t really help nobody.
    I mean, i feel like an crap artist today - but i´m going to continue my work anyway....and i won´t tell it to anybody ---- wait, i just did..... okay forget it !

    this is my idea, its a race that once used to be satyrs but of many years if cannibalism and incest and transformed, they now use there extremly high voice to mimic the satyr's mating call to attract them to their doom.

    I agree it definitely needs some goat qualities, but must look much nastier and corrupt.

    AestheticMachine - I was thinking the same thing about luring with pheromones! I love the bottom left sketch - looks great!

    An idea I'm working with, though it looks mostly like a frog... >.<

    Mitch-King be careful because that one's less of a creature and more of a character. Not sure what's going on in the abdomen, are his entrails out?

    I'd work on making him look more like an animal in the face.

    Then again the satyr is considered a "creature" and has very human characteristics too so perhaps it will be ok for this week's topic?

    Satyr Slayer! -Forest Fisher.
    I has no ears so it cannot be charmed by the glamourous music of the Satyr.
    It is covered in boney plates- both to protect it from the poisonous arrows of the satyr and to 'hear' the sound vibrations of the satyr music and home in on its prey...
    ...or some random tripe!
    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.

    I figure it's a parasitic creature that hunts Satyrs and occasionally impregnates one.

    lkjhgfdsa: That is a really unique creature. A sweet design, and some cool background info all adds up to an amazing creature. Can't wait for the final!

    Im going to try and get some sketches up tomorrow sometime. Going to try an focus on the design aspect of these weekly events from now on. (EOW included)

    Pping Prowler

    Hey all, I'm new to ConceptArt.org and am pretty excited about the COW. It seems like an excellent way to build on my portfolio and develop some creatures. Anyway this is the idea I'm developing for the "Satyr Slayer"... he's a "Piping Prowler" and uses his specialized snout to mimic the Satyr's Pan flutes, luring them to their doom when they think they are being summoned to a wild bacchanalia.

    Edit: And of course I misspelled his name in the post title... oh well.

    Hmm, I like the concept, but I'm not sure about execution just yet. We'll see as I get further along. The idea here is a creature with a symbiotic/parasitic relationship with a tree. I was thinking about how Satyrs are often carousing with dryads and so forth, and I contemplated a creature that was something like a dryad, but had rather more murderous tendencies.

    So, this creature burrows itself into the base of a tree, latching on and disguising itself with dug out earth and bark. When satyrs come near, it utters an enchanting humminig noise, luring it closer. When it's close enough, the creature lashes out with its spider-like appendages and pulls it down into its belly under the tree. The byproduct fertilizes the tree, which is why I was going the symbiotic route.

    What do you think?
