    This is what i got so far....

    The Bogstrider a very slow and methodical predator. Capable of Small bursts of speed and leaping, it is very unpredictable. It is mostly a "Fishing" predator but it has been known to hunt humans and other animals. It settles over an area with its large leg base and uses its 'Stinger', which is centered on the underside of it's lower body section to spear prey. In the 'stinger' is a powerful neurotoxin that eradicates the nerves on contact. it is usually very sparing with this venom as it is difficult for the creature to generate more once it is used. Although the creature does not need to use much, to be effective. The Creature has shown great intelligence but it is still very much an animal. All biologists agree that it has Arachnid Qualities and Mammal qualities but they are unsure as to how or why those qualities were combined or evolved. Many Biologists believe the Being a failed experiment to create a power creature to be controled and used and when it was deemed a failure they set it free, expecting it to die off. Well, the dead bodies and horror stories of the creature lean more to it being alive and very well.

    C.O.W. #172 5 Legs and SuperVision Posting_WIPS thread

    Just doodling some ideas

    1 is roughly just using the 5th leg for a powerful jump, 2 gets a 5th leg inplace of a tail to aid climbing, 3 I'd really not sure whats its for beyond it being a tripod on crutches arrangement, and 4 would use the 5th leg between its first two for casual walking, but while hunting would tuck it up and use it to strike at it's prey without having to slow down.

    So we agree that the creature must move on the five limbs.
    It does not matter how many arms it has or body extensions as long as it has the five legs.

    This sends all my studies to the bin LOL...well except for the crappy crab!!

    just a sketch i did for fun last night... still unsure if it fits the brief... so any feedback before i start rendereing it a bit more would be great

    this predator stalks the treetops of the jungle at night... the extra limb gives him the abilitie to move faster and the strenght to grab bigger preys without lossing grip

    First time ever doing a COW...may not end up doing a finished piece due to my lack of ability with dynamic poses on creatures...but hey...for now it's good practice.
    The idea: This is a creature that came along before the inefficient 5th leg was weeded out through evolution. However, the leg has begun to take on more efficient roles such as seen here. It still retains the leg-like qualities..but it is now used as a spear for prey. The "knife" end of the leg can fold back into a fleshy pocket located on the underside of the leg. It's vision is thermal based. The large eye on top is protected by a thick eyelid. It is there to provide aerial awareness of other, larger flying predators. The large eye is completely exposed when the creature is on the hunt.

    sorry for the length...

    aeon: holy m.c. escher batman! Looks cool. Really curious to see how you handle the painting on this looks like its not going to be too easy.

    emerging: looks awesome. Your sense of color is great. I could learn a lot from you as that's probably my weak area. I do agree with paolo that the far front leg on the male looks akward right now. But I have all faith in you. Great start, if you use the whole week this piece should be amazing.

    Just some crits for now. I'll try and post my wip tonight when I get home. Trying a new technique.

    5 Legged running beast

    Based on a greyhound, which is a "sight-hound" i.e. chases prey when it sees them. 2 ideas, perhaps 2 separate gaits of the same creature: a loping gait shown at the bottom which includes the back legs, and a full out run using only the front 3 (stronger) legs. Large claws would be on the back legs so as soon as it catches the prey it can "pounce" with them. This might lead to further developments of hind-winged creatures (as the velociraptors developed into birds....)

    Shadoworen - You still have days to go with the cow, work on it some more, get some legs in there and some values.

    Aeon - Cool idea, it looks ethereal-ish, it'd be interesting to tie in the movement as well maybe with the static pose, a diagram off the side maybe.


    Update, blocking in... .

    im having issues, just as much as the next with the fifth leg idea.
    however i keep seeing people using something i would consider arms and counting it as a leg.
    i think emerging's concept is a great showcase of what this means.
    yet i keep seeing raptor like creatures and the two arms are considered "legs"
    scorge defined what legs were, something that adds to mobility
    i dont feel like arms, or what would be considered arms do such.

    and scorge please correct me if im wrong,
    but don't get settled in to a concept that doesn't have FIVE LEGS as it is the most challenging aspect of this COW in my opinion.

    My guy has 5 legs.. one in the middle, two in the back with eyes on the knees, and the two front legs are the ones that look like hands, but aren't.

    emerging: wow. Did you use a texture overlay for the ground or did you paint all that in? Its awesome. I'm sure you still see stuff you could work on but it looks pretty much done to me. Great work.
