We are going to get dirty for this next topic. Let's consider what would happen if an alien race would invade Earth by using the ground we walk on as a weapon. Or the ground they walk on? Or perhaps they themselves are the ground, so they walk on themselves? Anyways, the creature we are designing for this round is alien and made of mud. Fairly straightforward, but a big note I want to make, really try to follow the 'no blobs' rule. Let's put it this way, for example the black goo that makes Venom is unacceptable, but Venom himself is acceptable (minus the character and humanoid qualities, of course). Be sure to keep your creature very muddy and disgusting however! Now let's get Dirty!!
-mostly made of mud
-has something to do with aliens; a mutant from space, space mud, infected with some alien virus, etc.
-remember no blobs, must have an underlying form

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!
Here's a start. It's an alien monster that lies waiting in the ground for humans or other prey to walk by. It practically opens it's stomach and drags the prey down in the mud where they slowly digest in it's claws.
Hey everyone! First post here on CA actually. Been lurking for awhile and drawing on/off for a few years. Decided to start participating and taking art way more seriously recently though. Here's my take on this one so far.
Just a really quick sketch and some values. Had some thumbnails in my sketchbook and decided this was pretty solid. Basically just big insects with these giant "mountain" backs that chill in these mud-swamps and then come out to "play". I figure the horn would help them move under the mud along with the main top ridge of their backs. Trying to work on storytelling/composition right now so attempted to fit that in there, but if it just needs to be a shot of a few of the creatures let me know and I'll trim it down.
Really like what I'm seeing! Tsabu's super organic form fits really well with the mud concept imo.
