    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: 2023
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
Views: 1781
Size:  90.4 KB

    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.

    nice topic! finally got some time for this..

    here is my idea:

    the offspring before it even gets born starts eating on his mother inside and thus his first kill is his MOTHER! going to paint an illustration where he is eating her belly out from inside and is coming out. Hows that for an evil born bad creature hahah... if i can pull it off should be pretty awesome!

    Some good ideas you got!

    I got 2 ideas:
    1ª - Its a creature that grows on other species body, like an alien on a human. So it first kill would be the host

    2ª - They are born together, but only one will survive.

    I'll try to make the second idea ^^

    Baby spider pig.

    Concept: Mama piggy gives birth to several but only one lives on. The strongest one eats it's siblings as it's first meal.

    I just sketched it very rough with a pencil. I 've read the idea and this popped into my head. I wanted to make something funny this time. The dragon baby wears a diaper and is about to undress the stone age girl.

    BUT, then read the instructions again.... and I recognized I missed the topic completly.
    I'll make another one. Just wanted to show you

    Here's my current WIP.
    Classic parasite, the egg is planted within a pregnant host and leeches all the nutrition that would be going to the surrogate's child. When he is fully grown he eats his way out.

    Skullbeat: Love the little feller! So cute and pretty. Great design. Make it shine!
    retter: Nice cartoony version. Very anime. You could run with it, render it with bright colors and elaborate on what exactly those four "arms" are. Do they have joints?

    Figured I'd try a cow . Some references and sketches figuring out what I wanted it to look like then the design I'm going with. This creature eats the eggs of its siblings as soon as it's hatched. Unfortunately the egg in it's mouth is a bit small compared to the others, but I'm reluctant to re-draw it .

    emerging - That really sucks. Luckily, the WACOM uses a fairly common usb connector for its tablets. It should be relatively easy to find another chord. Try looking around in a local computer store, they should have the same type of cable.

    Emerging I found this online ( for older models the intous 4 has a removable usb) he also had a good tip about shortening the wire and putting on a female so you could add a jumper wire ( fresh and new) to get length.

    I guess wacom charges $75.00 or you can also get a new wire from them for $16 but you have to do the soldering

    Another way to make clean splices is to use heat-shrink tubing.

    1. Get a long length of narrow-diameter tubing, and a shorter length of wide-diameter tubing.
    2. Cut the USB cables before and after the break, so that you are only working with good wires.
    3. on the shorter of the two cables, strip just enough of the outer cable casing to expose enough inner wire to successfully solder
    3b. strip enough of the insulator off of each inner wire for a good solder joint
    4. on the longer of the wto cables, strip a length equal to the length you stripped on the shorter cable PLUS a little bit more than the expected length of the finished wire junction
    4b. strip enough of the insulator off each of the inner wires for a good solder joint
    5. cut the narrow tubing into enough pieces to cover the inner wires. each length should be a bit longer than the expected length of the finished wire junction
    6. slip each of the narrow tubes down a different wire on the longer of the two cables
    7. cut a length of large diameter tubing that is much longer than the expected total junction length
    8. slip the large diameter tubing down the longer cable as far as it will go
    9. match up the wires and solder them together
    9b. test the tablet to make sure you didn't make any mistakes. slip some paper between each of the solder joints if you need to keep them from touching.
    10. for each wire, slide the tubing over the bare metal (note that the tubing should COMPLETELY cover the bare metal as well as some of the insulator on each end), and heat by holding your iron near (but not touching) the tubing. Use a heat gun if you have one. Keep heating until the tubing is nice and tight
    11. slide the large diameter tubing over the splice and heat it up until it shrinks down
    12. you should now have a working tablet with a very clean junction.

    In my experience, electrical tape is only useful for marking rigging settings on sailboats. It may be useful for electrician type electrical work (main power line cables, etc.). But the glue is too weak and the plastic is too inflexible for electronics work. Electrical tape used on computers usually results in a hard to remove residue and a rapidly unraveling length of tape.

    It seems straiforward you'll need a soldering iron, Rosen core solder, shrink wrap tubing two different diameters, some cutters, and a lighter for the shrink wrap.
