A feline creature quite similar (but not the same by any means) to a cat both in appearance and in size, it has remarkably more mimic muscles, so it can make expressions and thanks to that and to its higher inteligence, communicate with its partner. Good for infiltrating unseen and sneaking around...
Not much imagination here (trying to work on that, but its no good t_t)
blackfingers, those lines and shapes make me sooo happy Can't wait to see your next images
Working on a beetle henchman, fueled by NINJA MAGIC!
Quickly tested some colors before going to bed, nighty night everybody
Only one thing bugs me about this week's challenge. I think the creature should be able to assist the ninja in assassination even if it can't kill on it's own. For instance, a creature that could distract or confuse an enemy while the ninja approached would be invaluable, one that holds the ninja's weapons for him, or maybe one which produces corrosive saliva to break through locks, windows, etc...
I think the necessity for killing ability is going to limit the results of this round.
Lurker here. Thought I'd give this a go rather than just flick through the archives in awe.
I started off with some standard creature shapes to warm up with stealth in mind. Obviously you can see from the 2nd one I forgot the rules for a moment >_< kept it in though in case I use it for part of the final creature. The first would seek the target's most likely source of water and secrete poison into it. The 3rd conceals fine darts in its bushy tail which doubles as a vibration detector, paired with sensitive ears it can act as an early warning signal for the ninja. The 4th is capable of attaching itself to almost any surface and curls up to fit into tight spots, this enables it to stowaway on its targets vehicle/luggage to wait until a suitable moment to strike. Usually it waits until the target is sleeping to attach its sucker-like feet to their chest/neck and grab their head with their hands. Its grip is so unrelenting that a sharp tug separates the head from the spinal column. The creature is surprisingly quick and can perform this attack by simply leaping at its opponent when a more suitable time isn't available. When blending in with crowds with its ninja companion it pretends to be a backpack.
I'll probably flesh out the 4th one because its just plain weird.
I figured I might finally try completing one of these. Here is a rough draft of my idea thus far. I'm thinking this guy strangles its victim with its tail so they can't scream, then jabs them through the eyes before flying off silently into the night.
The creature design is looking great scorge, i like the first idea the better. In this last one i think the idea is to freeze the moment just before to making the jump, the idea is good, but for some reason , and to my eyes at least, is looking static and unbalanced, like if the creature is about to fall the next second. Just a point of view in case you find it relevant.
If you want to do a feline I suggest you look at some refs, first of all - at skeletal and muscular structure of felines. The creature so far has a ton of anatomical problems. Among them:
-skull. Where is the skull? So far it doesn't have any.
-limbs. Both front and hind - how are they attached to the body? Did you skecth a skeleton first?
-paws. Felines have small round paws.
Working on values is also required. The cat is of the same value as the scenery and thus disappears completely.
scorge- i really like the second pic matey. where your beastie only has one paw on the ground in motion it gives him a sense of poise and agility that he would need as a ninja's friend.
gona call my guy a shadowflicker. very intelligent and able to snap its tail as a distraction for the ninja.
Oskar! - Watch out! Getting a bit too humanoid for COW.
scorge - Looking great, Dave. I think you'll have a better sense of momentum and action if you have one of the back legs lifting up a little bit. That will help it seem like the fully extended forelimbs are pushing off.
Hi! This is my first time here and this seems like a great way to practice so I'll give it a shot.
This is my version of the ninjas companion.
It's a flying creature in the size of a small bird. It lives on blood from other creatures. It stings it's victim in it's sleep, and then circulates it's blood throught it's own body, draining it of all nutrition. The blood is then returned to the victim, though it's now useless and the victm will soon die. Since it doesn't actually drink or store the blood, just drains it, it can "drink" massive amounts at the same time and often drains all blood in the victims body despite it's small size. Since it can drain that much from a single victim it doesn't need to feed that often wich makes it a good companion for the ninja.
Another first timer here.
Started out with just some brainstorming to see what I could come up with, then started leaning towards the little bottom guy with the tongue.
Wanted something small and compact that wouldn't interfere in what the ninja was doing. So the idea behind the creature being he can curl up like a pill bug, then shoot out a tongue that might be laced with poison.
Sorry guys, had to delete the last post. Something wrong with the attachment manager.
Anyway, here's the final. Gotta go do something else.
Dammit, something wrong here. Can you guys see it?
