    Thumbs up Shark/Squid

    My son gave me an idea of having a Shark/Squid. The head of a shark and the tentacles of a squid coming from the back end.

    My time behind the pencil and more

    Hi, I'm not really an artist, but I am into writing and biology, so I guess that counts for something. Here are my ideas; they may be similar to those before me, but oh well:

    Eusocial / Hiveborn - a family organism organized according to reproductive capacity, such as ants, termites, bees and naked mole rats. But what about birds? Or rabbits? Or apes? Or even plants and fungi? What kind of defenses would they have? What is mating like for them? What do they subsist upon? What are their homes like?

    Beast God - Humanity can't be the only species with faith. Don't rats have their kings? Don't gazelle pray to some windy force after successfully dodging a lion? Maybe flies do have some god, a "trash can thor", you could say... BOW DOWN BEFORE FLIPPERUS! EEE-EEE-EEE! Well, try to paint what their god looks like, as it is praised by its followers.

    Extreme Specialist - There's a species of ant on some far-off island that feeds exclusively upon the eggs of one species of spider. There is a species of finch on Wolf Island (in the Galapagos) that feeds on the blood of blue-footed boobies. Come now, of course you can think of your own far-too-specialized specializer! How far have they gone towards getting a meal, evolution-wise?

    Lean, Mean, Fartin' Machine - What smells, is soft and just stained my jeans? Why, a chunk of broccoli from my dinner plate! Why, what did you think I was going to say? In any case, a Fart Machine farts for a reason. Mating call, perhaps? Self-defense? Or maybe it's a form of locomotion? You make the call. I'll be too busy gagging in the corner.

    Imperial Runts - Any creature - given the instincts and intellect required, of course - could create a society, then a city-state, and eventually an empire. Whether they act with the brutality of the Romans, the pomp of the English, or the innocent devilry of the Americans, these runty little critters have their own way that is totally unique in the end. Maybe they use the bones of their ancestors to build things, or perhaps they fuse themselves together to create living tanks and towers. Their goals may not be their own; perhaps it's all encoded as instincts (read Clan of the Cave Bear to see the neanderthal's instinct capacity), or their minds have been altered by some other... presence. Whatever, they are fierce, arrogant and above all, RUNTY.

    That's it for now. Excuse the joking before, I'm fond of smiles.

    EDIT: qitsune, as well as several others have mentioned wheeled animals.

    Spinning Flesh - Somewhere out there, a beast with rotating parts exists. Not some cybernetic monster, not some silicon-based thing, and for all intents and purposes not metallic, electronic or even synthetic. Maybe this beast has wheels upon which it travels, organic discs composed of flesh, blood and bone (or chitin); furry, somewhat irregular discs with denticle treads, for example. Or perhaps its some aquatic leviathan with a bone propeller instead of a tail fluke, perhaps several propellers in succession to allow it great speed. Or maybe it flies? Up to you, that's for sure.

    A creature that carries its house along with it,
    or, something like a pigeon or rat that has adapted its lifestyle to human civilization.

    A "Were-Rat" It aparently lives in the walls of common suburban households, One caused my Grandfather to draw an insignia on the wall, smash a hole in it with 5 pound sledge and dance around it in his tighty whiteys, Chanting.
    "Were-rat Were-rat in the wall;
    aint you got no sense at all,
    dont you know that wall is plaster?
    So come on out you little bastard!"
    He was a little drunk.

    a fully functional grasseater . no deadly predator. and it should be able to blend in with the rest of the animals of earth. but no hybrid or spinoff from an existing creature. no cowhorse or something. it should look normal and with no dangerous or colorful visual aspects. that means that the humans should leave it alone if they encounter it. but not a cuddly pet animal,perhaps its even beeing used by humans for food of some sort. they drink its milk or eats its meat or something.
    seen so many cool predators ,but thought that be a true challenge to design a boring grasseater .

    hi
    i know this isnt a creature idea but what about if you set up different levels of competition, like a beginnners entry, intermediate and avanced, i know it would take a lot to organise but i think it might give more inspiration and enthusiasm to those such as myself that are in no way near the league of those that are posted, but i think if i had the chance to post something i would work harder and improve better maybe. As in a greater insentive
    if this is a stupid idea let me know ^_^

    no good idea...too much time consuming and who wants to tell who is good enough for the advanced level?
    The mod? No good idea.
    The artist himself? No good idea.

    Hmmm, well, I consider DSG to be a good place for beginners to start. These "of the week" projects, while exciting, are too time consuming for me, being a full-time student, mom and worker.

    A newbie with nothing else to do could do the DSG and input more time with relatively good output in comparison to others in the DSG, plus gain some better practice by doing daily work rather than a long piece. The reasoning behind this is they have to practice each of the steps more frequently, whereas with a high finish piece you put much time and effort into the finishing stage. Sketching needs to be practiced more frequently in the early stages of artistic development, because drawing is the base of the pyramid of artistic skill. The art worlds in France and Italy both knew this for centuries.

    Thought I'd throw in some thoughts.

    Topic 1: beauty and the beast proposing

    One must be on his knee's proposing to his true love. The idea is that one of the creatures is quite ugly looking while the other is beautiful. Think of “Beauty and the Beast” and you should get an idea. It is possibly that you can make one of them human if that fancies you more.

    Topic 2: Monster trying to follow dress code policy.

    The code states: All monsters must wear a business suite with a tie. We want all our workers to look like true professionals. Nails, teeth, spikes, or anything sharp for that matter must be well manicured or cut. We are not here to "SCARE" any customer's away or other employee’s! Shoes with long stockings are a must! No, your not going to walk bare-footed or slime your way around with your tentacles. And remember to always wear a big smile.

    Just remember to follow the policy. The creature may not be good at following that policy but is trying to give it some effort. You do not actually need to show him working, just him attempting to wear cloths for the policy.

    Cantofly - Project for the most stupid spiece in the world. The Brid'o, that can't fly but thinks that he can. It must have solid skull (a lot of crash...) and something like wings. They fall from the cliffs and try to fly they way into the air. Without sense of course.

    Final evolution of a species (could be that of a current animal)
    Cyclops' pet of choice
    Permanently homeless

    Faster than light - the catch is that it would theoretically be going back in time if it moved that fast. However, to maintain relationships with other creatures they need to stay in the same time zone. This means it limits its mobility to speeds below that of light, and feels like it's constantly in a state of hyperactivity.

    Modernist creature - Form follows function. Simple design strictly to serve a purpose. Technically, all animals would fit this description, but you could have a bit of fun with this and exaggerate the trends of Modernist design.

    Shadow Master- By itself it is a harmless creature, but it can cast shadows off walls and maniplulate them into dangerous monstrosities that abide to the shadow master's bidding.

    Book worm creature- a studying fanatic that reads hundreds of books everyday to make his head grow larger then everyone else.

    The Kitchen Slob- Sneaks into kitchens all over the world everynight and eats all their food and steals their refrigerator’s.

    The Evil Fastfood Mascot- Make your own evil fastfood mascot that would even give the Burger King dude the jitters.
