C.O.W. #216 ,the painter. Wips Thread.

ROUND #216, the painter
ROUND#216, the painter
This week we'll be designing a very artistic critter. Well, maybe not intentionally artistic. The creature this week has something in its biology that produces a bright blue bodily fluid. It then applies (or paints) its blue secretion to its environment to mark its territory. It may do this to find mates, lure prey, or ward off predators in some way, but its up to you to decide the reason it does this strange activity.
- the creature can be any color, but the fluid it produces must be blue. The shade of blue is up to you.
- you must show how the creature makes the fluid in your design. As well as how they apply it.
- You need to keep in mind why it marks its territory, but its acceptable to only include that in your description.

Just an idea, but is personifying a spray_can braking the rules?
I got a few other ideas, i would like to take part with these activities competitions but yeah i ain't a good artist therefore i may just post my ideas here only. . .

Sorry guys, i started playing with the spray can idea, pretending I can paint:
I think its breaking the rules because the Can-creature resembles a human, so I'm gonna scrap that idea

This was fun , but again a monster that paints, a painting monster, the pokemon painting monster is a great idea its really hard to compete with that.
Here is a tentacle painter its back / butt stores blue paint and squirts it out when its in fear just like a skunk.
i might stick with this

This is my first time posting so be a gentle or harsh as you feel. My style reflects a lot on the imagination. Can the creature be partly imagined or does the creature have to be segments of existing creatures. Eg: body of horse head of crab or body of horse head imagined shape of some kind.
Any help appreciated and thanks in advance.

Episode Your creature can be pretty much whatever you wish as long as it follows the rules. You can twist existing animals, rip some parts of them to your design, come up with something completely new, merge several animals together to form some kind of hybrid etc. etc. As long as it is an original creature that doesn't exist in the real world, it's cool.

This is my first entry into anything on this forum so i hope you enjoy. I did many pages of sketches before finally deciding on this creature.
Is the perspective correct?
As always be as fragile or critical as needed.

Ran outta time on the last one, giving this one a go! Hope this isn't too "humanoid". But I wanted to check before I started to render it... oh, if there's anything else I should do too I'd appriciate the critism.

@whiskeysour: looks far enough from a human to be considered a creature, Im not sure we can use multiple colours since it was specifically stated that the fluid is blue.

@McGhoul: The form is coming together, just remember to focus on a primrary lightsource and build shading and highlighting off of that, I think making the tongue a bit longer and curved, as if he is actually licking the tree, would give it a bit more movement in your image, and showing a bit more splatter on the tree as well would also imply a more lively presence for your creature.
@AdrianNagorski: A better design than your can creature, remember that it should apply the paint to something as opposed to just spraying it on enemies, that basically already happenes in nature since certain cephalopods do this
@Episode: See above what I said for AdrianNagorski. Also I'd fix the part where the necks connect to the body, since it looks like the heads are just barely hanging on.
@Camel: Looks awsome so far dude. Looking forward to seeing you render this, I can imagine this creature full of colour and all those bulbous ball thingies are transparent sacs full of the blue vapour spray, but this is your creature don't let me tell you how to design it. But I'd show in the background some sort ot design or trail of the vapour, also having it wrap around the creature would be pretty cool as well.
@Whiskeysour: Upon looking at your creature again, I notice it's a bit off balance, if you notice the shoulders, one is considerably highler than the other and the mohawk seems a bit off center with the creature's body, flip the canvas often to give yourself a fresh look at your image, and it shows these kinds of misproportions more clearly
Well, after one half of my brain was finished arguing with the other half I've decided to go traditional this round. I've been meaning to go back to using coloured pencils, similarily to my macaw drawing (shameless self promotion the macaw can be found on my SB and DA account if you want to see it). I'm actually quite surprised this showed as well as it did through the scanner because it is drawn really lightly on the paper. The idea is that these primates secrete this sticky blue substance through sweat glands on their palms and fingers. They draw on various surfaces to communicate with other critters in the area, whether it's a 'Piss Off!' or 'I'm Horny!' or 'Grub's Up!' message depends on the shape/symbol they draw, still haven't come up with those shapes yet...looking for some feedback so I can or won't fix before applying the colours...
