    nice topic, gonna see if I can contribute for this seems like fun.

    xiennex: here's the difference between cow and chow, cow is about creating faunal creatures, your design represents a species not a specific individual, while chow is about the individual, a character, it can be a non humanoid creature, but the design is focused on the individual itself. No humanoids are allowed in cow so participants don't just design trolls and goblins and whatnot and so it forces them to think outside the box and design actual animal like creatures.

    Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!

    Long time no see, everyone!)
    On Li-Ro's planet, where all plants are carnivorous, gardening is a serious business. Only the strongest and bravest can take care of this rancorous gardens. They feed plants with fresh meat, look after young shoots, trim sprouts and harvest the fruits using different kinds of laser tools.

    He's very humanoid at the top, so that needs to change, but to do gardening for pleasure you have to have a mind at least as evolved as a human one and manipulators at least as effective as hands, so I need to think.
    I want the stick to be a kinda all purpose gardening tool (whether that's to do with transforming the end or just chocka with different tools, I don't know), and he will also have pouches full of garden-y stuff on his back.

    Is this the final topic then?

    Sat in Costa today just thinking up what it means to be a Gardener, and how it can be used throughout the universe.
    In the end I came up with the notion that it involves nurturing/helping maintain nature.
    With this in mind I came up with my design.

    Stretching over vast distances of this flat terrain planet exist vines that act as "highways" for spreading spores, nutrients and fruit/veg.
    It's along these highways that our alien character, helps protect and maintain the fruit that's carried across these vast distances until they are ripe enough to be picked and have their seed's spread.

    The duties of this alien and it's fellow gardeners across the vine, is to keep at bay any wild life that seeks to prematurely eat the fruits resulting in a chemical disturbance that causes the fruit to wither and form a blockage in the vine which can be disastrous if not dealt with asap.
    Once the fruit is ripe for the picking the alien's have a process ( a very delicate one) for detaching the fruit without upsetting the plant.
    Once picked the seed's are extracted and replaced within the vine for further fruit to grow.
    It's a mutually beneficial friendship.

    It's not uncommon for an alien to stick with a fruit for many months, becoming a sworn protector to it's fruity companion.

    This was the initial design I came up with, a species at the early stages of becoming sentient. Hence the basic attire and primitive feel.

    @DoctorDigit:Interesting idea, would love to see how you take it further.

    So here's a sketch. The idea is that these rather surprised humans hired a gardner called Wilhem Juks von Kas-Vladmovic from craiglist and he turned out to be a six-armed ALIEN!

    Official appendage explanation: humans (OAEH):
    We all have what you might call arms, they are similar to yours, though not limited in the same way. They are created for us at different intervals throughout our life by artificers, who's appendages are interestingly similar to your own manipulatory units. Depending on the individual's vocation, the the limbs are created differently. No one knows how the first set of appendages were created, though there are many rumours within our culture, it is the same sort of thing as your people's obsession with your origin and the meaning of your existence. We know our purpose in life, it is to catalogue the meaning of other sentient species' lives, which is why we are here, talking to you. For more information please refer to 'Official visit explanation: humans (OVEH)'.

    First(s)

    "Those? They trek here in the spring from the northern 'ports. Their masters found for themselves a business in selling the extract of a flower that grows only on these desolate plains--and so they built themselves a race of gardeners.

    They needed something that could trek the long kilometers between the Markers, that could shade and nourish their precious cargo for the many months it takes to reach maturity. So you'll see them out there in the distance, still as statues most of the year, as they wait patiently for their sapling to grow. By the end of the season, after the harvest, you'll see them striding past, bushels full, emaciated after months spent in a vigilant hibernation.

    Freaks me out every time."


    First pass at my first CHOW and my first post on CA. Thanks for reading/viewing!

    Got an early start on this one. Tried a more classic style for my last entry (didn't seem too popular :p) but going more loose/painty for this. Nice work so far!

    @Pixeltuner - looking great already!
