    ROUND #285 Denizen of the Upper Sky

    topic:

    ROUND#285: Denizen of the Upper Sky

    On a distant, polluted and highly industrialized planet there are no clouds. The sky has been blotted out long ago by a miasma of toxic fumes. Most life sticks to the safer lower reaches of the sky but there is a savage population of mutated and cannibalistic creatures who reside within the toxic atmosphere. These creatures are often highly variant in appearance, no two looking exactly alike but they seem to share the same myriad of teeth, spines tentacles and wings. Food is scarce in the upper reaches and the creatures often resort to cannibalism. Predator eats predator and there is no clear food chain in the upper reaches of the sky. Even so, rarely do they venture into the lower sky, as the breathable air for most creatures is an unbreathable vacuum for them and only the tempting prospect of an easy meal will see a denizen leave the miasma. Your task this week, is to design one of these mutated denizens.

    Round requirements:

    - The creature must be depicted in flight

    - The creature must reside within a toxic atmosphere and should be depicted within it

    - The creature should appear severely mutated, tentacles are encouraged

    - The creature should appear predatory


    Deadline:

    January 23rd, 7:00pm PST (GMT -8 )

    Are we allowed to show this creature perched on something? I have an idea of having my creature perched on a very high factory smoke stack with it's wings outstretched...the ground maybe a mile or more below.Name:  rsz_hurdcow285a.jpg

    Metal Fingers I wanna thank you twice because your second wip wasn't there when I thanked you the first time, but DAAYYUM!!!

    GEB urs is awesome too!

    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!

    Thanks y'all! I've been meaning to dig into the C.O.W's for a while and I think now might be the time. Here is a bit more of an update on mine, building out the forms before I go back in and add the mutation flourishes. Cheers!

    That is one gorgeously rendered beast! Great job there.

    I'm more or less done, had to rush it a little bit because of other work I've got lying around.

    A bit late to the party here but oh well. The sketch needs more definition and something to make it look more capable of flight maybe. Dunno if I can finish this on time, but the subject is great.

    This is a cool topic, with some very interesting ideas already present... Tomorrow I have all the afternoon free to myself, I'll try to make an entry worthy of my much appreciated peers and colleagues.

    But even if i don't finish, I just wanted to remark how nice art you are presenting!
