ROUND #232, Maturation
Wow. I can't believe that this week marks 1 year since Si_Swe and I started hosting cow. Thanks to everyone for making it a great year! we'll try keeping the topics interesting.
Since this is the 1 year anniversary for us we thought we'd build a round based on the time frame of a year. Here goes...
The creature you'll be designing this week is born exceptionally docile, has a vegetarian diet, and is extremely beautiful. It lives with very minimal worries, and is content with a quiet peaceful existence.
It lives this happy life until it reaches the age of 1 year. At this point the pretty little beasty starts to go through some "changes", those being a form of rapid puberty that lasts 1 week.
After the rough week of speedy maturation, the cute little critter emerges into adulthood with an entirely different look, along with a new violent temper. As an adult the creature loses most of its beauty, becomes strictly carnivorous, and loves nothing more than ripping apart any unfortunate living thing that looks at it the wrong way.
Now, show us the before and after of this creature. One showing its cute friendly childhood, one showing its ugly violent adulthood. You have the option of showing them both in one image, or entering 2 separate images.
This will be a 2 week cow!
Requirements this week...
- the child form must be beautiful, and not have any physical attributes of a violent fighting creature.
- the adult form must be ugly, and must have acquired some kind of biological weaponry like spikes, horns, claws, fangs, etc. Through its metamorphosis.
- the child and adult forms must share some physical traits so that you can tell that they are of the same species.

Well congrats (lark and Si_Swe!
This is a neat topic, kinda reminds me of beauty and the beast, but this time they are the same species, and two weeks, well perfect for making two creatures

Sounds really cool, although I would also love to see the midpoint of the creature in the maturation stage when it is half cute and half terrifying. I intend to maybe add that in too if that's cool.

Happy (paper) anniversary!
This week's (forthnight?) topic reminds me of pokemon where some players don't want their pokemon to evolve into less cute critters.

Universal reason isn't always fair but it has an amazing sense of humour.

That's wicked cool Jagder! totally fits the topic so far as I can tell. I suppose the adult could be a little more obviously aggressive, but what do I know?

jagder - the adult form needs to evolve some form of natural weaponry. that doesn´t read from your image so clearly now. if u add that it´ll be perfect

Lovely render Jagder, though I agree you probably show the more violent/wild side of your creature.
Here's an idea for the children phase of mine, not sure if it achieves the "beautiful" required though?

Me thinks I'll have a go at this one, as long as job hunting art tests don't get too much in the way...
@jagder: maybe show his teeth or some claws, that'd be a simple fix and would fit the brief - like, open his lower jaw, letting it dangle menacingly with some rabid-looking drool coming from his fangs or something like that. Or even just some spinal spikes.
@scimthar: looking cute. reminds me of a shitzoo (chinese dog?). Interested in seeing the adult!
