    Creature of the Week - 10 Year Anniversary Archives

    The COW Archives!
    10 Year Anniversary!!

    Creature of the Week - 10 Year Anniversary Archives
    January 25th, 2005 is the date that it all began, the first ever topic was posted setting the mark for one of CA's most popular activities! And 10 years later COW is still going strong! Mind you, it hasn't been going consistently througout the entire ten year period, as there have been a few times COW had been on a lengthy hiatus. However after a whole decade COW is still bringing together a hourde of skillfull creature designers, to whom all have dedicated in a ton of their time, effort and creativity into this forum activity. Whether you are working professionally in the field of concept art, doing this as a hobby, or are a beginner looking to get better at what you do; COW is a place where we all get together to have fun as we learn from eachother and grow as both artists and creature designers!

    Note: All records are based on participants that had entries submitted and accepted into the final poll for each topic at Creature of the Week.

    Note II: All statistics are based on topics up to the Anniversary round, being round number 342 which coincides with Creature of the Week's 10 year Anniversary!

    Note III: No creatures were harmed in the making of these archives!

    Other Fun facts:
    -January 25, 2005; The first topic for Creature of the Week was posted marking the birth of COW!
    -COW's first round was also the first to feature a tie between two winners, being Jull and Matt Dixon, and it is also the only round to hold a tie-breaking poll, which still proved unsuccessful as it also ended in a tie. Thus resulting in shared wins in COW if the result is a tie for first place in voting.
    -Creature of the Week has had several ties throughout it's history, but only once has there been three entries tied in voting to win. Round #131 Sound creature, with Wiggers, dwinbotp, and Arthur-gl being the winners for that round.
    -Only one round has featured multiple topics with winners for each different topic. Milestone Round #200 Land, Sea, and Air had three differnet briefs with winners for each separate topic being GoldenSerpent, (lark, and Matt Kohr.
    -Out of all 179 winners only 62 participants have won at least twice in Creature of the Week. 10 of those participants have have won at least 6 times!
    -COW has had 7 artists to be featured as moderators for the forum. Each of the 7 moderators has won at least one topic of Creature of the Week. 5 of which have won during their moderation terms.

    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!
