    Round #171 Giant Amphibious War Beast


    Topic:

    #171 Giant Amphibious War Beast


    Time to get epic folks. The year is 4010 and after the effects of the Great Melt in 2056 as it would be known, the world has begun to regain its balance as the polar ice caps start to reform. But unseen to the small population of humans after these epic events is the damage and unexpected mutations that occured under the vast seas that covered 95% of the Earth's surface. As the salty waters recede, and fresh water which became a scarce commodity after the disaster starts to become more plentiful, bands of men used to sailing the mighty oceans begin their fueds for sovereignty over these precious areas. Wars break out and of course great beasts are recruited to act as the guardians of these rare sites. Your job is to design these beasts which have been chosen solely for their size, and ruthless temper.
    So, make a war machine, a species which appears to have been bred (even if by Mother Nature) only to fight and destroy that relies on water to keep it wet because of its amphibious nature. You can include a rider(s) on this one and very light accessories such as harness and so on, but everything about the warlike aspects of the creature must be part of the creature's anatomy, not a bunch of stuff attached by the wranglers. Also keep in mind that this is a giant, roughly the size of a humpback whale. Include some reference to demonstrate scale. Last, have fun. That's an order.




    Deadline:

    Friday March 25, 2010.

    I'm so in. Going to try a different approach this time and really plan it out. Trying to sketch it out on the comp first and really work on my values. I'm going for a snapping turtle sorta thing.

    I am so in on this one, awesome concept! Since I did a whale/serpentine creature for the last COW, I think i will looks elsewhere for inspiration. Hopefully I can come up with something unique

    Mfrank - Really like the initial design, you can already get a sense of its epic size.

    (lark - Its looking good, although remember its an Amphibious creature, At the moment I am getting the sense of a deep sea creature, maybe if you show it emerging from the waves? Dragging itself across the ground?

    really nice topic - going to post some sketches later -
    and i secon fiddzy - amphibous means that the beast needs water to keep skin moist but is albe to walk on land - an giant octopus or shrimplike creature would be quite far from amphibious- i think the difficult part of this is that the amphibious animals (on earth) have soft skin and normally - i think - no claws and stuff - they seem to rely more on poison,fast toungue-attcks and other original strange weapons - not so much on sharp teeth and claws.
    Life on earth is expensive, but it includes a free trip around the sun every year.
