    You know, I kind of go in for some of the classic, familiar stuff, redone though. So, while the subject may be boring, it could be spiced up some

    • Dragon
    • Chimera
    • Orc
    • Goblin
    • Sprite
    • Wood nymph
    • Banshee
    • Wyvern
    • Classic "grey" alien (a Spielberger )

    O_O

    Someone just pasted his own daily-creature research list

    If you have time can you add detailed information about some creatures, for the not so popular ones like: Broxa, Cherufe, Nahuelito etc...?

    thx

    a few ideas tossed whimsically from my mind whilst under the influence:::

    - A bipedal creature with at least 3 different species incorporated. (Bipedal = two legged). For instance: Head of a wolf, body of a human, legs of a lion. Whey basic.

    - Two creatures that live symbiotically on one another and will die if separated.

    - A monster that can blend into everyday city streets and not be noticed.

    - A beast made from clotted blood that continually flows and cannot be stopped.

    - The underwater creature that really sunk the titanic.

    - Something discovered in aztec or incan ruins.

    - Older than the sun.

    Hope these are some fun and fairly open ended ideas. Id like to see one of em done Enjoy and on with the fun!! MOO!

    I don't believe anyone has mentioned :

    Chupacabra

    or

    Kappa

    and i'd like to see this :

    Hermit Creature (like a hermit crab, anything that shelters itself within something else)

    a Pokemon-esque creature (really anything so long as it is little and cute-ified, i would love to see some of the great artists who draw the most ferocious looking beasts do something like this.)

    a creature that could survive a nuclear holocaust

    microscopic creatures that live in/on humans

    some ideas

    we keep in in the basement

    the thing that would not die

    an unwelcome guest

    it pathetically tried to use the silverware

    small, compact, lethal

    the gentle giant

    it can smell your fear

    crossbred to madness

    its love for her killed it in the end

    a family secret

    don't laugh at it , that will only make it angry

    feeding its young

    the female of the species is more dangerous than the male

    mating season

    the doppelganger

    and to think, it was just a little boy once

    it runs in packs

    it requires a living host for its young

    the digestion can take up to a week

    cyclopean

    watching it eat made the guests sick

    it devours its young

    my father was a great man, to see this as his final creation, is just incomprehensible

    the husks of their corpses eventually were made into vast cities, and the titans were forgotten

    it feeds on the dreams of children

    40 eyes

    once the door was opened, no one could close it

    it could consume up to 40 quarts of blood a day

    in the day, it looked innocuous

    with the dawn, came the swarm

    the eggs had been laid, it was too late to save her

    wearing a human skin was a feeble disguise for this disgusting and stupid creature

    upon insertion, it would swell to a lethally huge size

    Wasp Zap Mighty Electric

    Okay, this one is going to need a little bit of a preface:

    My kids have their own worlds, "Dragono" and "Eagano". They have come up with, among many, many, many, many other things, the Zap Mighty Electric.

    Now, I'm not *entirely* certain what a Zap Mighty Electric *is*, but what I've gathered is that it is some sort giant biomechanical creature used to defend both Dragono and Eagano from the "Debles" of "Debleno", the *ULTIMATE* bad-guys.

    Now, Zap Mighty Electrics have got, well, weapons, and more weapons. And they're armored. And have *lots* of limbs to hold all of the weapons. And they sort of look like lobsters. Or crabs. Or something...armored. They are invincible. Indestructable. They can't be busted or broken or damaged. Dust goes everywhere when they take a step (quoting my four year old here...). They're *really* big. Huge. So if you want to draw one close up, you have to use a *really* big piece of paper.

    And they have pinchers, too. They hold giant lightsabers, too. They hold different kinds of fighting tools, too, like axes and swords and things. And guns.

    They can be different colors. Usually two colors, but *not* rainbow. And dragons and eagles can sometimes ride inside.

    [edit]: It' important to note that the dragons of Dragono are six limbed, four hands, two legs. Actually, the more limbs, the better, and tend to be very scientific and technologically advanced. However; the Eagles of Eagano are Bald Eagles, they use their feet like hands, and are noble warriors

    Well, i didnt know where to put this comment, but here it goes:

    " So far, the art seen in C.O.W is really good, some have movement, some a really good pain work, and others are cool ideas, but if i have to say anything bad about it, it would be the lack of reseach to make the concepts ( moust of the research related problems appeared in the symbiosis predator C.O.W), im not saying that is neesesary for concept artist to folow biology perfectly, im just saying that they should be able to undestand the basic concepts(moustly to play with them in order to get even better concept art)..."

    So my point is that the next C.O.W s could ask for research fomr the artists ( ridiculous i know) or ( this could be better) this forum could have another weekly or montly contest that could be more related to make a research on a topic( an interesting topic of cource), and then post the results and making them original at the same time ( as i already said, to research doesnt mean that you need to do things with perfect logic, it mean you can play with logic and create original concepts).

    As for new ideas for C.O.W, is better to use vague and general words or frases, for example -"flying terror" or " Tricky Beast"..

    Thats all i think

    So my point is that the next C.O.W s could ask for research fomr the artists ( ridiculous i know) or ( this could be better) this forum could have another weekly or montly contest that could be more related to make a research on a topic( an interesting topic of cource), and then post the results and making them original at the same time ( as i already said, to research doesnt mean that you need to do things with perfect logic, it mean you can play with logic and create original concepts).

    As for new ideas for C.O.W, is better to use vague and general words or frases, for example -"flying terror" or " Tricky Beast"..

    Thats all i think
    Not to be an ass, but I have a hard time taking a post about lack of research seriously when it's so chalked full of typographical errors...

    As for the research aspect, Fozzy is the final say, but I think this is more about imagination. Obviously, if someone puts more scientific research into their piece, it will be better, depending on the subject. But it's really up to the artist.

    And regarding your last point - "As for new ideas for C.O.W, is better to use vague and general words or frases, for example -"flying terror" or " Tricky Beast".."

    ...*what* That doesn't even make sense. Is this a question? Are you stating something? I'm sorry, I just don't understand what you are saying here...

    Im sorry about the typos, i did the post kinda fast and all (really sorry about that), but you dont need to get mad at me, i wasnt attacking anyone, as for my point, i did say that i wasnt talking about specific knoledge, i was talking about basic concepts, such as "symbiosis" or "predator" ( i wasnt saying that you should know the quemical composition of the chitin armor)

    Also i wasnt saying that C.O.W should be about research, i actually did say my own idea was ridiculous, and then i said that it would be nice if we had another weekly contest beside this one, and that one could be about researching concepts..

    As for my last point, i dont think i need to explain it, cause is not that important.....

    Sorry again
