    ROUND #201, BORN BAD

    topic:

    ROUND#201, BORN BAD

    Well everybody, that's 200 rounds of cow in the books! That means its time to begin the long journey towards 300, and since 201 is just the start of that journey, I thought we should design a new born. Not any normal newborn though. This little bastard is so nasty it comes out into this world with such an incredible blood lust that it makes its first kill within its first 5 minutes of life.

    as far as creature design its all up to you, but you must Illustrate this fiendish infant making its first kill! And show us what it means to be born with a bad streak.

    Things to consider...

    It can kill in whatever way you like. Maybe it is born, or hatches with the ability to hunt. Maybe its mother brings a live first meal for it to kill, maybe it kills the mother! Or maybe, something happens during the birthing, or hatching process that kills things in the area. Its entirely up to you.


    Deadline:

    February 9th at 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    I will do a realy realy evil "cuckoo from hell" thing.
    I have another sketch that would fit soooo good (is it against the rules to use existing sketches? I know it is forbidden to use finished pictures but is it the same with first sketches? *crossed fingers*).

    Edit: P.S.: (I know it is sort of swaggering but) I will order one brand new wacom intuos4 L today \o/ )

    i guess it´s fine to turn something existing into something new if u evolve it.
    not sure what the mods say...

    i´m going for some "inside-out"-theme. the newborn creeps out and then turns itself outside-in with a huge membran that then captures the mother inside - the newborn keeps on feeding from the mother´s secretion until it is fully grown and searches for new prey on its own.
    i hope to show the evolving of the 1st stage to the fully grown as well. not sure if i find enough time since i have so much to do lately

    i was getting used to 1 month long CoWs, i feel time pressure will be a problem now , anyways as i see everyone is liking the creature eating its mother, i want to go with something different, im thinking about the way birds feed their chicks, but instead of worms, with humans, and it will be some kind of evil birdy creature from hell ;D.

    No hint from a mod, if older sketches as basis for a new rendering are ok?

    It would depend on how much you're changing it up. If you're using it as a base, and building up a new piece from that, I'm fine with it. If you're just rendering out an old sketch because it fits the theme, that's a no-go.

    Thx Si Swe for answer, i think then i should do the "cuckoo from hell"-thing.

    The sketch i would have used is this one:

    Name:  birth.jpg
Views: 2238
Size:  108.3 KB

    The newborn would get a "new" design (at the moment it is just a placholder. It will be much less goat like, more a individual lovecraftian creature that eats some small humens while it gets born or so), the mother would stay like it is.

    But i understand that this would be compliant to rules.

    I've got a creative brain freeze. I want to consider multiple concepts before moving on, but everything I think of is merely a variation on this idea:

    Name:  bornbad1.jpg

    Sort of like the cow bird (which lays an egg in another bird's nest, then when their egg hatches it pushes the other eggs out). This species lays an "egg" which is really just a juvenile phase that happens to look like the egg of a completely different species. Under the care of their oblivious surrogate "mother," this juvenile survives by consuming all the other developing eggs one at a time, providing a handy and fresh food supply for it while it develops. When it has consumed all of its nest mates it enters a pupal phase and transforms into an adult. Its last act before leaving the nest is to consume the surrogate mother which protected it as it developed.

    Edit: Here is a revision. Too many tentacles? Legs or no legs? I'm going to have to keep thinking on this.
