    I haven't read all of this thread, so I might have few repeats...

    Hibernation
    Mating rituals
    Rite-of-passage ritual
    Evolution
    "The Queen"
    Living Fortress
    Lives in Bubble
    OBESITY!!
    Slavery
    Giger-tribute
    7 deadly sins (or several wrapped into 1 creature)

    I'll start contributing to COW once my skillz are up to par.

    Ancestors (Chose two previous COW winners, and determine a common ancestor they both evolved from - go back as far as needed)

    Generalized (Like the first rodents which spawned bats, whales, and horses - something unique which is bound to change and spread into every niche)

    Environmental Transistion (A water species evolved to deal with a drought, a herd species evolved to deal with an agressivly expanding forest, herbivores begetting a carnivore)

    Motherly Love (Reproductive forms not using traditional eggs or live birth)

    Metamorphosis (undergoes change from infancy to adulthood)

    Sensation (Senses the environment with something other than sight, smell, sound, etc)

    Good Eats (Domesticated creature raised for food)

    Migration (Creature designed to travel long distances)

    Tethered (Never moved more than a few feet from it's birthplace)

    Tool Inspiration (Beavers make dams, birds weave nests, paper wasps make hives. What natural activity of your creature gives its sentient neightbors an idea for a new technology?)

    Wow this list is getting long. Too long to remember what's been said and what hasn't. I thought of a few I wouldn't mind doing. Not sure if they've been mentioned or not. How about:

    Rock creature (think of all the different rock formations there are)

    Lava or Magma creature (something that lives far below the Earth's crust)

    Splitting Creature (a creature that splits into two non-identical creatures when it reaches adulthood. basically a spin off of Jaleho's motherly love)

    Red face

    Extremely Dorky Ideas:

    Hot Chick Machine Creatures (Still not humanoid, but must resemble females in someway: facial features, eyelashes, metal boobies, etc.)

    Cutest Creatures in the Existence of Time (Soooo cute, they'll threaten your sexuality!)

    Meanest Insect-Like Creatures (Creatures with exoskeletons!)

    Mutant Mistakes (When science went wrong on experiments)

    Hooves and Horns (Badass herbivores)

    COW ideas

    how about:

    Electrical creatures:
    ones that use or create their own electrical currents to kill/stun prey...

    Shape Shifting Creatures:
    one that can take on two (not multiple forms) to disguise or hide from prey/predators.

    Summoning Creature:
    One that re-animates dead cells with an enzyme to do ...whatever it wants.
    (ie. zombie-like effect.)

    Speedy Creature:
    one that can move at astonishing speeds. (w/o flight.)

    Sound Creature:
    One that emits a high pitched note, for mating, luring, stunning other creatures.

    Stealthy Creature:
    One that has amazing evasion/hunting skills.

    Most of them start with the letter "S" I guess i just like that letter.



    tell me if you likey.
    ~Orco~

    In memory of Napolean Dynamite, how about a Ligre?

    He who asks is a fool for five minutes,
    but he who does not ask remains a fool forever.

    Starting over.

    Dougbot and I did 'Haunter of Dreams' for a Thunderdome challenge. It's a pretty open-ended topic, so it'd be interesting to tackle a second time, and see other people's take on it. I'd also like to suggest throwing in an occasional open round just to mix things up a bit.

    Actually, how about just suggesting the name of a creature, and see how people interpret that? There have been some quite creative / humorous names for creatures conceived in the concept descriptions already. Might be an interesting change of pace and probably better than a completely open round...who knows quite what a Frizbongular Tappit, Cornswoggler, or Heaving Multrassian Fitch looks like?

    In fact, why not fun it up a bit? Wouldn't some of our usernames make for interesting creatures? Just scrolling quickly back on this thread produces some interesting ones - Zaknafain, Salvadorcoran, Magicgoo and even Fozzybar ( ) all suggest fun stuff in my head. So, I suggest...

    Creature named after a ConceptArt.org member

    ' Shut up, Matt. ' OK, brain.

    Here are my crappy thoughts..
    -The non-human species that will replace homo-sapiens as the dominant presence on Earth

    -The last species left in the universe before the last star goes dark....

    -The first new species after the next big bang.....

    -A creature that must annihilate matter for sustinence

    -A creature that thrives at absolute zero.....

    -A creature with multiple brains

    -A creature that can only survive on massive magnetic fields

    Sorry if they are a bit cheesy or cliche...

    I like the idea with the fantasy names as a base for the open round...

    Amen to the idea of a name converted into a creature....and what better way to start it than with a Ligre. I second Klinesmoker. GOSSSH!
    Cheers!

    ps. There should be a Napoleon Dynamite icon in the Smilies section.

    Just some more ideas. Haven’t read the entire thread so if some of these ideas were already suggested, just ignore ‘em.

    - Organic communication device

    - Animals doomed for extention (i.e. "The Bubble Wrap Shelled Tortise of North America.") Never had a chance.

    - Grave digger for deceased mythological creatures

    - Animal mascots from alien worlds

    - Uncredited creatures that changed history




    * And thanks for putting all your time and energy into this Fozzy! It's a great exercise and hope it becomes a mainstay of CA.

    I see lots of fun ideas here, sometimes I like topics more specific and other times I like them more general, I think we should mix it up. Example, St.patrick's day just passed, what if the only suggestion was "green Creature", I think it would be alot of fun to scroll through a thread where all the creatures were totally different designs but all shared one visual attribute, in this case the color green.
