    ROUND #230, the Swamp God

    topic:

    ROUND#230, the Swamp God


    Props to rob powell this week. got this from his suggestion in the topics/suggestions thread and ran with it. THANKS ROB!

    ------------------------------------------------------------------

    A swamp is a place that is saturated with living things. Its believed that the moist climate,and close relationship with water is responsible for its abundant life form population.

    This week we are going to pretend that theory is wrong, and that the real culprit for the immense amount of life in swamps is actually a master life form that creates new life from itself.

    Populating its swampy home with an infinite number of new species, the creature you will be designing this week is referred to as "a god" by those that have witnessed its species creating abilities.

    Requirements this week...

    - The creature must reside in a swamp.

    - the creature this week is immobile. Any appendages it may have are not to be used for locomotion.

    - the creature should appear to be "godlike", it creates new species out of itself after all. its up to you to decide how to represent that visually.


    Deadline:

    September 28th 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    time is such a valuable thing....


    I'm kinda unsure about the "life creating" / "life giving" and the "godlike"

    would a swamp-elemental that consists of living material fit the brief?

    in the Islandback WIPs thread someone posted this illustration made for MTG

    http://media.wizards.com/images/magi...s_1280x960.jpg

    somehow this looks a bit like what I initially had in mind when I saw this weeks topic but as the live giving factor is a bit more passive in this concept I was unsure if such a creature would still fit with the brief

    or

    are we supposed to think of a way how our "god" actively creates live ?

    Cow

    well just a quick sketch of my idea, its a living creature attached to the biggest tree of the swamp, i havent thought of an exact explanation of how it creates life, i was thinking maybe the reason of it creating life would be to be able to eat what it creates, so far im trying to focus in the immobile rule, the creature will create life and well im not sure how to achieve a godlike look on an immobile creature so im going to have to give it more thoughts, any suggestions or comments are welcome.

    nice theme by the way, the idea of an immobile creature inspired me, i usually spend most of my time thinking how a creature would move and here i dont have to think about it .

    This is an ancient creature which rules the swamp like an ant queen. This creature breeds new ones by growing new egg-like parts of body, from which new creatures breeds.

    I am envisioning a creature made up of the swamp itself (mud, trees, rocks) ... coming out of the ground.
    This is a rough sketch of the concept. I am planing to sketch in some creatures floating out of the water coming from its mouth. Like a crocodile or fantasy version. and birds flying out of one of the eye holes.

    ...Wonder if it would be considered "big" enough to be a god.

    Either way, very quick concept sketch.

    Just a quick sketch. I will probably make some pretty substantial alterations if I pursue this one because the "creature" isn't that interesting yet IMO.

    Swampy and immobile, but no plant creatures... pld:

    My mind keeps going to the forest god in Princess Mononoke.

    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.
