    Yeee Haaarrrrrr

    Hi peeps,

    I went with an alien flying species that has evolved to handle space travel with the warp ability. The ability is activated by a chemical reaction in special glands within the thorax of the creature.

    The thorax also features a natural exhaust mechanism to safely expel the toxic gases created as part of this process.

    I think I may be the only one with a qwerty keyboard...something like that... Heh Ha
    The word ‘anarchy’ comes from the ancient Greek αναρχία in which αν meant ‘without’ and αρχία meant first a military ‘leader’ and then ‘ruler’. Anarchist society is one ‘without rulers’: a classless, non-hierarchical society.

    I just wanted to see what it looked like if I cut out the mouth from my creature and push it toward the squid inspiration a bit more.

    Would anyone care to throw out their opinion on which version is better?

    razwit - You described the creature as a dumb dog, and since the eyes are of a very cartoonish nature, I'd say the mouth complements that look much better.
    Try to clean it up a bit. Right now it looks too busy. The eyes look great, though. Keep it up.

    Wip update. Added tale feathers, kind of like a peacock. Added texture and some highlights. Will add more details to the background to give off the impression of speed.

    Crits are welcome.

    C.o.w. #271, warp steed! WIPs

    Okay

    All right... so I'm gonna try this one out. After several iterations of thumbs, I settled on this one... I like the sort of stocky quality of it. I'll post more as the design progresses.

    Oh well crap, I didn't realize it was due later today, maybe I'll sit this one out lol I still have a ways to go before truly being able to render imaginary things. I'll go back to practicing... one day I'll make something worthy though! Anyhow, here is the WIP... kinda muddy.

    guys, you all have read the description i guess - i am wondering how a lot of the designed creatures are supposed to travel accross universe. Some "just" have legs and no cockpit or some sort of support for the rider. Are they supposed to jump from planet to planet with one gigantic leap? riders will be crunched in space.

    just mentioning this since i love logical designs.

    can someone clarify this

    07:00:00 p.m. Wednesday August 22, 2012 in GMT-8 converts to
    01:00:00 p.m. Thursday August 23, 2012 in Australia/Sydney

    ninety9: I felt the same way, but rememnber, sometimes we just might have to suspend reality to do an entry. Plus, the theme references the sort of pulp 1950s scifi/space feel, which by definition almost ignores logical or realitstic science. Part of COW is having fun trying to create an explanation of how these things work... some of them are flat out physically impossible, but it's all about presentation. For example, though I can't finish mine, I was gonna call it a Spaceripper. The "horn" on its head had the ability to pierce the fabric of space and time, thus allowing the rider/pilot to warp around. Pretty ridiculous in terms of real science, but acceptable within the rules of the contest. You mighr have a job as a concept artist where they task you with creating unbelievable things, but part of the fun is trying to make it work

    Sunseaker: lol thank you, but I know I can't finish it well enough within the time. I may revisit the idea when I'm more skilled. I really like how yours looks so far... and a lasso would be pretty cool lol
