    ROUND #198, revoltingly expensive

    topic:

    ROUND#198, revoltingly expensive

    This week I want everybody to get dirty, ugly, grotesque, vile, and all around unappealing in their design. Create a creature that has a visualy disgusting presence about it. Make the viewer hope that they never come across one of these critters just because they are so offensive to look at.

    There's one catch though. This unfortunately ugly fellow must have something in its anatomy that is extremely valueable. For example... its teeth are made of diamonds, it pisses the best smelling perfume in the universe, it shits gold, or it can produce or be made up of something we've never heard of before. Its up to you, but the part that is valueable must be apparent in your image. Get creative! Show us the true value of being ugly!


    Deadline:

    DEC. 15th 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    Killer concept indeed! It's a very busy week for me, but I hope I can find the time to participate. In any case, I'm looking forward to seeing the final entries.

    Agreeing on the awesomeness of this idea. Might want to knock that typo out of the title though. "Revolvingly Expensive" makes me think of a tornado made of diamonds or something.

    Cow

    after 2 hours of work, here is what i have so far, i already thought of the story for this creature, but now im too lazy to write it, so for now, lets just say its some kind of toadspider (there is nothing more disgustin than toads and spiders), and inside of it, there is a big golden ball growing.

    here it is:

    here's a quick sketch.
    the design is not really thought through, but I was thinking that the expensive part of a creature could be high quality oil it was producing.
    otherwise you wouldn't really want to get close to a critter this smeary.

    here it is:
    Just remember that the valuable part of the beast must be apparent. Meaning we have to see the golden ball. (I'm sure a cross-section would be just fine.) And since you already have the idea of crossing a spider over with a toad, you may want to think about studying images of both. What do you find disgusting about a spider? What details from the toad do you want to add to your creature?

    You may want to get a pencil and paper just to sketch out some ideas before you really get in deep.

    Ewwwww, gross! I like getting my hands dirty. Lets see how foul I can get. The valuable part is interesting. Value can be very subjective.
    I know that I can...now I must DO

    It's all about confidence. Just keep at it and you will prevail!
