    ROUND #284, ancient rainforest protector

    topic:

    ROUND#284, ancient rainforest protector

    this week is pretty straight forward. the creature you'll be designing is the protector of the rainforests of the world. it is a one of a kind creature (so it is a species unto itself), it is immortal, and it is extraordinarily old. maintaining a nearly god-like status.

    there will be no physical requirements this week other than being old looking. so feel free to show us whatever you feel fits the brief.

    requirements this week...

    - the creature must be very old looking.

    - you should place the creature in a rainforest setting.


    Deadline:

    January 15th 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )


    finals go here... http://conceptart.org/forums/showthr...89#post3618289

    Had some fun with this one, bit sketchy still but I hope thats okay

    Struggled most of the way with something very crappy, but then I managed to save it at the end.

    References are komodo dragon, orangutan, sloth and some flowers/fruit

    hey dudes.

    the site has been pretty sketchy so I'm going to extend this round one week.

    the new due date is the 15th of January.

    Cool, I had worked really hard on this weeks cow and was worried CA wouldn't be back up, or COW would be gone either way. I'm glad to see things are back up.

    Hey Rob, very cool design. I just wanted to give some friendly encouragement in terms of something I've noticed your creature designs tend to lack. You've got a really nice sense for the design and the anatomy of your creatures, but it seems like you struggle with colour. The red cherry-type of formations are a good start, but looking through your past creatures, I've noticed a strong tendency to avoid highly saturated, or vibrant colours. That works very well for some things, but I think it's important to explore both the earth colours/neutral hues as well as the intense palette we often see in birds/fish/lizards (not to mention all manner of alien and fantastical creatures). Here we have a creature that is native to a tropical environment, and it tends to be in the tropical environments that we see some of the most intense and beautiful colours in the animal kingdom, so I believe that this would be an excellent topic for you stretch your colour muscles. I love your design, and it's been fantastic to watch you improve by leaps and bounds since you've joined COW, but this is the one area I really think you could work on right now. Right now the creature is great, but it feels more like it belongs in a temperate environment than a rainforest.

    How do you resize for this site again? I am having trouble with my image size. Got it pretty small 650k and still won't allow me to upload, if I go any smaller the viewer loses out on a great amount of detail.
