    Topic:
    COW #338: Alien Fossil Interpretation

    Brief:
    Going for something a bit different for this round. Throughout the years Paleo artists are commissioned to interpret animals and plants from fossilized remains, more often than not the interpretation is pure speculation as not a lot of the subject has been well preserved. This week, let's pretend that an alien fossil has been found and you are going to design and 'interpret' the prehistoric alien life form that is now fossilized. For this round, in addition to the creature in the flesh, you are required to design the fossil as well, you can come up with any sort of fossil, whether it is bone fragments, amber, something fossilized within stone. So there's two parts to this, design the fossil and then design the creature that the fossil came from.

    Round Requirements:
    -both the fossil and the creature must be present within your entry, it can be any sort of fossil
    -the creature must have features identifiable from the fossil, as if it were a speculative interpretation



    Deadline:
    Wednesday November 21, 11:59:59 PM EST (GMT -4)

    I can probably do that, seeing as how much interest this topic has attracted so far
