COW #327 - Tiny Sparkling Life Giver
Concept: Lazarus Fruitscorpion
Life giving insect discovered in Borneo.
A small amphibious creature that seems to harness the secret to eternal life was recently discovered in the depth of the Borneo Rainforest.
Still waiting for a scientific name, the Lazarus Fruitscorpion produces a serum that miraculously restores life when injected into a newly deceased human.
The fruitscorpion lives solely from eating fruit from the Tarap tree, and use their flexible tails to stab the ripe fruits before they digest them. To date it is unknown why they do it, since it seems to have little effects on the fruits.
The active substances of the serum deteriorate in seconds outside the fruitscorpion’s body, so the only way to use its powers is by having it stab the patient. Scientists have still not managed to get an active sample of the serum to analyze the components, and they are raising a stern warning that the serum should under no circumstances be used on human subjects until it has undergone a very extensive testing period! Despite this, reports of resurrections are appearing from all over the world.
As a result, Borneo has been target to a full blown invasion, where explorers ranging from official government envoys and scientific expeditions to guerillas, poachers and gold diggers are pouring into the jungle from all directions.

COW #338 - Spirit of Winter
winners (tie): warburton/seksi
Concept: Spirit of Winter by warburton
A creature which is so rarely seen it is widely believed to only exist in folk lore and child stories. Many describe seeing this creature late at night on very cold evenings. Because of the nature of the creature and its brilliant white aura many believe that to even see this creature one must meet very specific requirements involving sleep deprivation, days without food and spending days in pitch black environments. Only then, if you are deemed worthy will you witness this beast. Its also seen as good luck to cross paths with this majestic creature.

He can command sudden blizzards with the touch of a hoof. The spirit's power is strongest on water and is frequently crossing bodies of water shrouded within a snow storm. Usually only evidence of his power is found in the form of giant ice crystals.

COW #339 - Ice Bug
winner: Rob Powell
Concept: Frostbite Mosquito

COW #341 - Shiny Armoured Magma Spewer
Concept: Magma Spewer
Born of obsidian, its black heart fired by the magma it spews, this creature scans the landscape searching for its next victim. Ruthless and cruel, it is a beast like no other, its only purpose to spread its firey breath in destruction. It lives in a world with barely any background, because seeing as how this is probably my 300th time doing the COW, I'm tired of drawing them.
Magma for life.

COW #344 - Elemental Wizard's Familiar
Concept: Necrebe (water element familiar)
Magi from across the realms utilize and specialize in one of the four primary elements as a means of channeling their power.

These beings, consisting of both the potent magical waters and the hallowed spirits of the departed, are angry, fickle beings that have great natural and elemental power that they can lend to the Magi who created them.

COW #345 - Stink bomb Slinger
Concept: Stink Bomb Slinger
The wilds of the planet Linapos are a beautiful but dangerous place. Packs of dangerous creatures roam the forest on the hunt for their next meal, relying on ambush to seize their prey. But one clever and odorous animal has developed a defense strategy unlike any other, the defense of stink. With its size and power, the Stinkbomb Slinger is usually formidable enough to defend itself from lesser organisms, but when attacked by the Black Terrons, a species that has evolved purely to kill, a more pungent response is required.
Deep in its gut, the SBS (Stinkbomb Slinger) stores reserves of a foul chemical known as Odoronium, the foulest known substance found on this world, which this creature is immune to due to its reduced olfactory nerves. Unleashing this chemical in a volley of pellets surrounded by a mucus housing, the SBS defends itself and gives the Terrons something to think about the next time they attack. The odor and acidity of Odoronium leaves a lasting impression with would be predators, taking years to even come close to fading.

COW #346 - The Arachnids
Concept: Warrior Bug by scorge
Since the initial battle on Klendathu, some 75 years ago, the bugs have shown a high rate of evolution, turning into even more vicious and terrifying killing machines. There is no better example than the warrior bugs, who have almost doubled in size and strength, while adding even more weapons to their already devastating arsenal of dismembering devices. It is also believed that the intelligence and sanity of the Warrior bugs has balanced to the point of being the biggest threat the Federation has ever seen. The human race's days are numbered now that this evolution has taken place.
