    Topic:
    COW #339: Ice Bug

    Brief:
    Whenever we think about or discuss colder temperatures, bugs are usually not involved in the discussion except for when they are absent from the cold. For this round however we will be keeping with a winter based theme by designing a bug that is more than comfortable in cold environments. This bug could live in a cold environment and have adapted a certain way for it survive the freezing temperatures or it could be some kind of ability the bug has or it could be made of ice, you decide. Either way your task is to design this Ice Bug!

    Round Requirements:
    -creature must resemble a bug of some kind
    -this bug is associated with ice in some way



    Deadline:
    Wednesday December 17, 11:59:59 PM EST (GMT -4)

    Thumbnails 1. Not surprised we came in last place with 0 votes again, a little embarrassing that three people keep coming in dead last, but we'll just have to work harder T_T.

    Wait, you're three people?

    Interesting silhouettes. The bottom left one has potential since it's a safe bug shape that we can all relate to.

    Hey everyone,
    Here's my starting wip. Not much in the designing front, mostly a modified weevil. It mimics snowflakes and feeds on pine needles as it needs the plant's antifreeze to survive the extreme cold.

    Some recent observations have me notice that Wednesday nights may no longer be the ideal time for deadlines as the site seems to be a bit inactive, namely in the activities section. The current deadline is in half an hour but still no entries have been submitted...I will post the new deadline being this Friday night for the time being. I will ponder on other possibilities for the deadlines because I want to try to liven up this place a bit...I know one issue for the participation is convenience, perhaps moving the deadline to the weekend may work out for more people.
