    That is very odd indeed. And almost strangely perfect for this challenge.
    Any critique is very welcome! I am here to learn! Thank you!

    Nice stuff Chaos I particularly like the bottom left one, as it seems to have the best weight spread of the lot

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

    Another update. Having chosen a style of creature I'm trying to portray it chasing a flying airship of sorts, because it feeds on electricity it has conductors raise on it's back, and I think I've got the wings to work after much hassle.

    Tchuk: Yeah they're kind of batwings but I haven't properly looked at ref for how the skin attaches and such

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

    ^ does this count?

    Just kidding. Nice sketches, people. Mhugo, your designs are by far the best so far. If you could merge the mouth from the one on the right with the shape/wings of the one on the bottom I think you would come out with something really REALLY cool.

    Good luck people!

    A few crits...


    Harmageddon: Nice start but taking a closer look at your lighting it seems as if the shadows and highlights in the mouth area should be flipped around. I would also recommend toning down the bright pink in the mouth as well. Good luck!

    Pixeltuner: Cute creature. Not much to say this early on. My only advice would be to keep an eye on your anatomy.

    Mhugo: Awesome sketches. You have an amazing imagination. I really love the bottom design. It's just really different and fun to look at. Can't wait to see which design you go with!

    Tchuk: I think this could turn out cool if you watch your values and define your creature a bit more before diving into the paint job.

    AdamStolterman: Good luck on your first COW! That's not nessacarely true about the wings having to be huge. You're back story could be that it lives on a planet with low gravity or that it's a winged underwater creature. Worry about getting that "cool" factor down in your design first and then think about the functionality. By the way, cool creature so far!

    ChaosTheory: You have some nice ideas going on. Personally I'd like to see you work on the bottom right more. I like the head on him.

    ENNEX: I think with this week's topic that the mouth on your creature needs to be exposed to the viewer a bit more. Maybe a more forward facing pose or just twisting its body would help to show more of the mouth. Just a thought, plus there's still plenty of time.

    Here's a wip shot of my design so far. Any crits would be welcome!

    I'll work some more on my critter tomorrow.
    Thanks for the comments/crits so far. You guys are good at this.
    Mhugo: thanks! I will think about wings. Actually when I posted it I reread the brief and thought: crap.
    I wanted to give it many tiny wings, like musquito wings. So that it would sound like a swarm of musquitos when it flies past.
    I will see what I can do.
    Tchuck: agreed; I did not think about the "timber!" feel it would convey.
    I was more concerned with the beast snaking past, when one would look from an aeroplane.
    I'll think about it. Thanks!
    sozo: thanks, I think you are right about the lighting. And the mouth.
    That is quite the struggle for me, but I will do what I can (and time permits)

    Some crits/comments

    Pixeltuner: nice start! I like the antlers for eyes.
    The mouth might even be bigger I think. The colours are great.
    Curious to see where you will take this. As sozo said: anatomy. Make it grrreat!
    Mhugo: I like your style: very clean, nice drawings. I like the top and right ones the best so far.
    Whatever you will go for, I'm sure it will be awesome!
    Tchuck: I like the topright and bottomleft ones the most. Curious to see what you will go for. Make it great!
    AdamStolterman: Nice design! I like the weird eel like head and the tripod tail.
    Wings are proportionally bigger (as with albatross) if the creature is bigger.
    Of course, you could also have your creature fly in the thick atmosphere of Zeta IX in the Pegasus cluster of stars,
    where gas filled bladders (like in fish) keep them basically buoyant and wings are only needed to change direction.
    ChaosTheory: LOL I like the idea of basically just a head with wings. This makes the mouth a very prominent feature in the design
    Curious to see which one you will go with. Make it great!
    Tchuck: I can see your creature gracing the cover of vogue one day
    You might want to make the mouth more prominent in the design though. Now it reads more like the frilled flying thing.
    Other than that, I like the energy you convey with your piece.
    ENNEX: your creature is also gas-filled I think?
    It looks to me as if the light is coming from the background, so the creature in front would be more of a silhouette.
    Also you might want to think about how the tentacled arms attach to the body; with muscles?
    Are there bones in the tentacled arms?
    Other than that, nice design and composition.
    sozo: I like it; looks like a sort of flying shrimp I think it needs an even bigger mouth though.
    bara: interesting , not much to say about it yet Make it great!

    Totemiks: you ask where you can put your WIPs to previous Creature of the Week contests? How about you open a sketchbook?

    this is my idea for the crit. poses as a pigeon or something, then gobbles up his real pigeon companions or an eventual predator.
