    Topic:
    COW #368: Hovering Bony Screamer

    Brief:
    We're going to be going with another composite word round. This creature has the ability to hover or levitate in the air in some way. It's body is either covered in tough bony materails or it's literally made of bones. And it's known for its loud screaming. Simple enough! Start designing COWies!

    Round Requirements:
    -creature can hover, fly, levitate, etc
    -tough bony skin or made of bones or something that makes it look bony
    -IT SCREAMS!!!

    Sunday May 29, 11:59:59 PM EST (GMT -4)

    Well, I uploaded some sketches, I decided to do a bird specie. Its body is covered with a strong callus (I have one question here... it should be all covered with this... bony structure??) I wanted to keep it elegant. Its wings deploy a thin but strong membrane that allows it to hover over the air currents.

    On the upper side there are some sketches, forms, and another bird like creature, trying to define a bone structure, or something.

    Ta-nook shivered in the morning air, his father insisting that his first hunt be as early as possible. As they wandered through the brush, a harrowing hovering form appeared, whispering on its approach.
    Maw, gaping in a silent scream.

    Thank you Abraham! I'm loving the direction you're going so far. the transparent wings are an awesome touch. Really digging the bony crests on the first design as well, breaks up the form a little better than just a collection of bones.

    a hive based threat response creature, using the idea that a bee dies when shortly after it stings and the ability to chemically produce helium to allow for extended periods of hovering at high altitudes. About the size of a small dog...

    Hello! It's not much, but I thought I'd share these very scribbly scribbles. I rarely do creatures, but it is fun to step outside of my comfort zone. Top one is most recent, and closer to what I'm thinking. I've got quite a detailed concept in my head - just need to draw it!

    Some really nice designs in here by the way...
