    ROUND #265 - Front-line Assault Beast

    topic:

    ROUND#265: Front-line Assault Beast

    I'm honored to guest host this round my friends. Your mission: to design a creature bred for war as a front-line war beast! This creature should have strong offensive and defensive abilities that allow it to crash through enemy lines and wreak havoc. It should protect it's own troops while providing natural firepower during war. Be creative! How does this creature assault the enemy? How does it use it's defensive abilities?

    Round Requirements:
    - The creature must clearly show some natural offensive and defensive ability that it uses on the enemy troops.
    - Bonus Points if you can show the creature in a battle scene using these abilities.


    Deadline:

    July 11th, 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )


    Finals go here: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...32#post3490232

    Can it be a ranged-weapon creature that is used alongside humans/aliens to push forward on the battlefield? Giving cover for the humans while spewing some kind of poison/acid?

    This brief sounds good, very tempted to try my hand at a COW now. I have some ideas but they are related to Hive minD's question.

    Also, would riders be allowed? Not with the intent of distracting from the design but more as a means of portraying scale and creature function in assiting the attackers?

    Very cool. I will try and negotiate this into my schedule.

    Everyone promote the hell out of this round, if you can. It would be nice to get as much traffic on a guest hosted round as we can manage.

    Thanks again to Adam for hosting.

    Hive_minD: Great idea, a ranged-weapon creature is certainly allowed!

    MacTire: Showing a rider or troops for scale would be awesome!

    Are accessories on the creature allowed? (saddles, reigns, war paint, etc)

    here's some silhouettes of some ideas that popped into my head...

    Sweet topic!
    First idea :
    The "prying" Mantis, shoving its sythes into the gates of the enemy keeps and prying them open, allowing for a contingent to pass through underneath, protected by the shielded tail of the mantis.

    Would it be possible to make this a 2 weeker? That way there would be more time to put into this awesome topic and more people might participate. Also theres a beter chance of getting the topic promoted with a longer deadline.

    Awww sheeit, Adam has taken control? How in the world can one afford to pass this up? Especially with two weeks! No time of course....but I'll probably do it anyway.
    Edward: Nice sketch! Will this one have eyes? (Curious). You might want to consider scaling down your floor tiles for scale.
    Rob: Is that a Jackalope I spy on #6? Good start my friend.
    Artezianin: That's got a lot of potential to kick some ass.

    fast and furious - well, just a sketch for now. Really excited about the idea (well anything to do with war is exciting when it comes down to doing art).

    Deadline Extended to July 11th

    Yay! We now have an extra week to hook up these bad boys...Try to use the extra time to sketch more thumbnails and explore more creature ideas. Once you've nailed it, take the time to produce a portfolio worthy piece!

    nice start guys!

    scorge: haha, man I must be way off the mark then, was supposed to be closer to a styracosaur-like creature...anyways these are just for brainstorming really...

    ok enough toying around with shitty silhouettes...here's a rough composition, thinking of somekind of rhino-like charging beast, an army with these guys in the front-lines can do quite a bit of damage...quite feng zhu inspired at this point, will have to change that...
