    I like all, but in the spirit of this thread I think THESTRAL has a great one.

    Everyone is doing a great job. Fun stuff!
    Here is mine....

    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot

    The NEW mutant baby displays the ever changing ever transforming theme of the NEW Creature Of the Week contest. Whereas the plush COW toy repersents a consistent place where you can always come to for fun and entertainment. I sketched out a pencil rough and the rest is 100% photoshop.

    Matt Dixon, OLSEN:
    Yeah, where's mine? I am not sure if i will have some time to do something...kinda busy currently, but i will participate for the next rounds for sure anyway...
    Matt, i really love the description you made...that's what i was talking about in the rules...i think we really should try to write some stuff about our drawings, this is a site about concept-art isn't it? It really helps the viewer to understand the piece and the concept at all...

    arteric:
    I think i will close this thread after wednesday midnight, between wednesday and thursday...if not i will do so until thursday evening for sure!

    I thought I would throw something into the ring here, Great thread!
    Matt Dixon's entry is top notch (my fav).
    I decided to just go ahead with this piece, I'll post the other ideas in my sketchbook thread instead...

    Cow Concept Art

    Hello all,

    Here is my submission for the Creature of the Week Illustration Contest thingy... I have updated this mere hours before the deadline. Added a cloudy night background to create more of a sense of place, not just floating in white space. I also muted the colors, I noticed they were WAY over-saturated after a second look.

    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot

    I (as with most) also went with the cow theme. The subject (a cow caught in the middle of a costume change) is symbolic of the various images and creatures we will be creating over the weeks to come. A single being doesn't quite capture the "in-flux" nature of the Creature of the Week" thread, so the costumes add to the sense of multiple characters even though there is only one, our cow quick-change artist. I tried to place a variety of images from alien to robot to organic creature (even the prop sword brings to mind the orcs and warriors I am sure we will be seeing in the months ahead.)

    I can only hope this image stands up against some of the incredible submissions I have all ready seen.

    Stitchface: Incredible.The lighting and the textures leap right off the screen. A realism approach to a fantasy image.

    Matt Dixon: Awsome. The brush strokes are great texture work. I love the little pencils and paintbrush tip added to the staff.

    Shadow: The image is a powerful one. As we read left to right, so does the cow become more bizzarre (sp?) as our eye moves in that direction. A simple but effective layout.

    Thestral: I love the details, the scribbled out notes in the corner... the single brush propped on the paint tube. It is the details that make this one cool.

    Jull: Perhaps the most "mascot" approach out of them all. The creature is just strange enough to make you stop for a moment, but enough seems real (llama?) to make you think you have seen this creature before, giving it a familiarity. The fact that it painted the logo on itself is GREAT!

    Olsen: Great strength to the image. I love the COW tatoo and the udder rings. The small etching detail in the gun is great.

    Enough compliments, everyone did cool work. can't wait to see how this one turns out.

    Eric

    Hey i REALLY had to rush this one!! Spent about 20 mins on the sketch a few days ago, and about the same on the colours

    Cartoonfox: I actually drew this the morning before you posted yours, i nearly killed myself laughing when u posted!!! Great minds think alike

    Unfortunately yours was a little more technically profound than mine

    Went for a logo-ish approach, ended up completely not how i foresaw it!!! Hope the saturation dont make your eyes bleed - didnt have time to fix it.

    Love you all!!! GO COW GO

    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot

    There is not exactly a time as a deadline like 12 pm...for this round it's wednesday, but i will close this thread thursday evening, so no matter where you live you will have enough time regarding the "normal" deadline i set...this will be same for the next rounds...no one should complain there was not enough time

    okay people forget everything what you think to know...what you`ll see now will change your consciousness forever...

    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot

    that`s it, the ancient udder from outer space, came to our earth to feed its children with the juice of wisdom and creativity
    I have tasted the liquid in the mind of the universe, and was not offended, for I knew I had to rise above it all, or drown in my own SHIT...
    think I listened too much funkadelic while workin on this...

    forget to say: thats my third try with my tablet and I spent 3 days of fun with this

    C.O.W. - #001: Mascot
    I haven't posted in a long while, been lurkin' lately and I thought this was a really fun contest of sorts, I couldn't get past the cow idea either but I thought I'd have a crack at it. I love Julls, Matt Dixon's and Stitchface's those are really cool. Nice work all around guys. Good luck!

    Ok, here's mine...actually i had no time and wanted to skip this round for me...but after Matt's and Olsen's call i had a bad conscience, hehe...

    And i don't know why, but you guys managed it to infect me with this cow-visual...actually i didn't want a cow...but it must have burnt into my subconscious or something like that...

    However here's my try...the mascot of cow....with seven teats for seven days, squeezing all the necessary skills and ingredients for a creature of the week on every day of a week...collecting the cow-essence in a special bucket...drink it to the last drop...

    awesome work everyone.

    I wish i didn't have this stupid project I doing for a job interview so I could do something for this. I had all these composition sketches and a ton of ideas. I'll try to squeeze it next week just to say that i did it.

    Udder Lunacy

    Hi everyone!!
    I have been watching and admiring so many artists on this site for a while but have never really been involved. I really like all the cows posted so far and there is a lot of creativity to draw from.
    The colors of my cow are not typical of my normal palette. I was drawing in blues and pinks to mock my good friend JoshuatheJames's style. Muhahaha!!! Both he and I went to the same school together. If any of you know who McNallyism is, I also went to school with him and we roomed sophomore through senior year. So, if there are any stylistic similarities, thats why. I normally draw in more subdued colors but I thought this would be a fun exercise.
    Anyways, this cow is not done but its close enough for now. Hopefully I will be able to post more of my work soon. I've been putting most of my effort into concepts for Turbine Games, developers of Lord of the Rings Online, where I am currently finishing up the monster designs. I hope you like my cow!!
