    ROUND #252: Winged Megamouth

    topic:

    ROUND#252 - Winged Megamouth

    This week is another randomly generated topic. It’s been awhile since we’ve gone up in the air with some winged creatures. As for megamouth, in the megamouth shark it keeps its mouth open constantly, filtering out food from water. Your creature need not necessarily have this exact quality, but the mouth should feature prominently in the design, and should be featured open, in the final drawing.

    Requirements this Week:

    - The creature must have functional wings

    - The creature must have it’s mouth as a prominent feature of its design

    - The creature’s mouth must be illustrated open


    Deadline:

    March 21st 9:00pm PST (GMT -8 )


    finals go here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?p=3405679

    Never participated in a C.O.W before, I'm in.

    And somewhere along the line, she came down with a serious case of dead.

    This one looks so cool. I probably won't have time to do another until next month, but damn this week's topic sounds really appealing. I look forward to what everyone comes up with.

    I think I'm in much the same state. After my rushed one last week, I'm going to wait until I have less projects so I can really sink myself into the contest. Maybe I'll do a few sketches for funsies.

    I always look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with!

    Sounds fun And, I've got the perfect refsite for this:

    Just shittons of pictures of animals with their mouths open. Oddly specific but kinda useful in this case

    I don't have much time this week either, but I figured I just start straight away and maybe get something done this round.

    So here is the first thing that came to mind.
    It's supposed to be a megamouths shark like thing, that gobbels up entire clouds and filters any lifeforms in the cloud droplets out for sustenance.
    The beast is filled with gas, leaves trails of water and or cloudvapor behind (chemtrails lol) and does swallow the occasional bird or insect that just happens to fly into its mouth.

    Any comments/crits appreciated.

    hey everyone! im gonna have a go at this even if its just a few WIPs. my scanner wasnt working so i didnt post my WIPs last week....is there anywhere i can post them? just for the sake of sharing. ok, keep up the good work.
    one question: does this creature need to be enormous? or is it enough that his mouth is enormous in proportion to the rest of it body?

    Awesome topic =)

    Harmageddon, nice start, i really dig your idea with the gas-filled creature, just keep in mind that it must have functional wings

    Pixeltuner, great start, reminded me a bit of the old Gargoyles series=)

    Totemiks, i think the creature can have any size.

    Some first quick fishy sketches to get started...

    Whilst we're at it I may as well post some sketches I've been working on.

    C.O.W. #252. Winged Megamouth - WIPs Thread

    Been testing out the idea of creatures based primarily in the sea, so mostly manta rays, whales etc. Also been looking at Tunnel worms and other various fantasy folk with less than gentlemanly maws.

    The Sarcastic Fringhead - My main inspiration for the mouth so far.

    I have to ask, does fully functioning wings necessarily mean used for propulsion, or can they be used mainly as a form of aerodynamics. See my idea for my flying creature with a rather large bulk; held aloft by air sacs like Harmageddon, (hence some of the sketches) with a ravenous maw for chewing on mountaintops to keep his bouyancy in check with it's primary foodsource being electricty from storms. A bit convoluted I know but I'm hoping it'll turn out alright in the end.

    Anyway I'll carry on with it later. Crits so far I'd have to say,

    Harmageddon: Liking the design, but I have to agree with Mhugo it feels like the creature is falling down instead of flying, perhaps it's perspective coupled with teeny wings. I'd loveto see what you come up with.

    Pixeltuner
    : Nice sketch my only real nagging thought would be the weight campared to the wings, I doubt they could hold up it's bulk and they seem like they're missing a lot of skin

    http://mikey3d.files.wordpress.com/2...edenstrom1.jpg

    Your wings remind me of a bats, notice how the skin on them stretches down to the actual legs in order to get as much wind behind it's wings as possible, as well as skin from their hands to their shoulder.

    Mhugo: Once again thoroughly impressed with your designs. Have to admit the top one is my current favourite, looking forward to seeing more

    Woo my first attempt at a COW. I love these challenges already.

    So this is my wip. I am having some trouble with the 'functioning wings'. Because i am no expert but i think that the bigger a creature is, the bigger the wings need to be in proportion to the body, in order to make it fly. Does anyone else know? Anyway i looked at albatros wings and went from there. But if i am right, that means that if my Megamouth is huge then the wings need to be huuuuuuge. Right?

    Also i really like the sketches so far!

    So random, so very very random, but so very helpful this week!
    Cheers!

    Hopefully be entering this week. I'm terrible, but hopefully weekly entries will up my skill level a bit.
    Just couldn't do last week, the whole...leg thing.
