    I figure why not... I'll try to attempt a C.O.W. and finish it. Plus I really love this topic.

    Here a rough sketch of an idea for a water elemental that pop in my head while reading the topic. Still thinking and planning.

    DefiledVisions I am really digging the crystal and tree back versions (#2 and #3) I think there is a lot of potential in designing a root to flesh transition.
    SygniSC The silhouette is reminiscent of a Narwhal, though yours is more curvy. The location of the fins looks to be crowding the head region a bit and I get the impression of something more avian due to its neck, where as a fish's neck is typically is thicker than it's head. I hope that helps in any small degree.

    Although keeping a familiar has largely been dismissed by wizards as an outdated witches' practice, many younger sorcerers still look for magical companions and aides in their studies. The most popular are elemental sprites, particularly earth sprites.

    These tiny creatures stand barely five inches tall, and can scuttle around a workshop at high speed. By all accounts, they are at least as smart as the average dog, and tend to behave in similar ways. Wizards use them as handy paperweights, and occasionally as mobile night lights if they can be taught to control the glow from the crystals on their back.

    So I tried to post this before and it didn't work...

    Little earth sprite. Favored by wizards who need a mobile paperweight.

    added by edit - whatever wasn't working is working now, so I'm removing the double post. My little dude is earlier up the thread.

    Thanks for the comment. I guess it does kind of reminiscent of a Narwhal. I can honestly say Narwhals were not on my mind when I sketched it out.

    I though about moving the fins back a little and you're right I do see more of the avian look rather then that of a fish.

    Heyyo COW. Been a while. I think the last time I submitted for COW was 2009 *cough*

    Thinking loose, something of burning embers, something of smoke. Patterns and shapes in fire lend themselves fantastically for mouths and long stringy bodies

    just a 15 min doodle top version, bottom is about 45 min, gotta head to sleep, it's 5 am. Damn you cow and your inspirational love bunches.

    hey, I don't know if I have bad the idea but here is my concept (no fleshy-not bony) so it is going to be just fire compressing and shaping the creature.

    Good stuff so far, guys.

    @Jager: Good earthly colors and a solid-looking creature. Nice.

    @DefiledVisions: Sweet thumbnails. I love 3 & 4.

    @Forgemaster: Looking great.

    I just had to do a little sketch. What do you think, is it too humanoid?

    I did some work on the snakelike version just to see how I could work with the fire/magma composition of the elemental.

    I see it being able to produce hot and cold areas to form magma like armour, spikes and blades with blazing edges/points, yet retain flowing serpentine movement.

    Just a few comments.

    ToddBushman Thanks, also really like b, probably going to play around with b and d most.

    DefiledVisions Like the thumbs, the fourth especially for it's resemblance to a scorpion.

    mythril golem - Really like.

    Abee Great thumbs, be good to see how they work out.

    @ nightherald : I think it is too humanoid, but mine aren't much better right now haha.

    Wips! I liked how in Avatar, there was a an animal with bending in each element. Inspired by that I guess.

    First time participating here. I'm not sure if I captured the "elemental" aspect of the design, but I didn't want to make it an amorphous water blob, so there you go. Let me know what you guys think!

    I've always been fascinated by burning wood. It's like, plants take fire (sun) and store it inside their bodies. Then when they die you can heat them up and all that stored sunlight just booshes out. This elemental is inspired by that. I can imagine a fire elemental lying dormant inside a log and then escaping once the plant is dead and all the water evaporates. This guy is supposed to be "blooming" off a burning branch. He's like.. a firey beetle headed birdish. Thingy.

    The thumb is reeeaaalllly rough. Then I sorta went crazy trying to paint fire, I used too much red so will have to adjust it later.

    Adding more comments here soon

    @buhardilla_ oi, nice idea! But I dont see a tree or plant in the area where it stems from. Looks more like lava now. Also, the design is a bit flat.

    @aburnier: looks great, but doesnt say made of water yet. Only 'partially living in water'

    @razorleaf: ye. Jello. Was thinking about that too. Still a bit ambiguous what it is made off. If its supposed to be filled with water, doesnt quite look it yet.

    @monsieur beefy- that was pretty kewl in avatar. But how are you going to incorporate the creatures being partially comprived of their element? Cool sketches though. But what's the bear/elephant for?
    We have air, fire, water and earth, right? No ice... that one would be great for ice.

    Small update on the fire elemental and some water ideas.

    aburnier Like the creature design, be good to see how you bring out the watery elemental aspect more.

    I've always felt extremely drawn to element of Earth. I think it's a very interesting and complex combination of life and lifeless, and it has many different "faces". It's very dynamic and kind of instable, but at the same time also very solid and powerful. You could look at Earth as cruel and dark, but also as good and providing. I tried exploring those different directions and ended up with these three concepts.



    Will choose between the Ox and the Gorilla-type creature; any help in choosing would be very welcome! Just to clarify; the Ox has a very friendly and natural look to it, it will be mostly green. The Gorilla is covered by various ecosystems (mountain, pine forest, leaf forest, grasslands and desert), combined with a fiery look around the legs and it's muzzle. I imagine them both to be rather enormous in size.
