    Armed with the 'Crit Cleaver' in one hand ( +2 versus fragile artist's egos with an instant death effect against photo paintovers ) and the 'Totem of Shutyeryapandpractise' in the other, she wanders the boards in search of artwork to battle. Those who succumb must suck on the teats of wisdom. Mmm...creamy! She's a bad-tempered bitch at the best of times...

    arteric:
    concept: 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.)

    OK - before voting/posting read this!!!

    1. Please give c&c or a reason why you voted for the image!

    2. Feel free to comment on any or all entries, the artists will appreciate it!



    note:
    I am really sorry! But the voting system only allows 20 poll entries...we had 23 entries, i had to decide to exclude 3 images....so i decided, regarding the topic and the usability of the piece as a mascot for this activity...hamsta's piece wasn't too clear...i thought it would be hard to use this as a mascot, since there is no definition....Uziel's cow was just a...er...a cow...so there was no unique design for a mascot...same goes for baaah!'s entry...all of them seemed rushed...and there are some entries where you can set the same criterias i know, but this silly voting system forced me to exclude some....sorry again...

    But anyway if members want to vote for the 3 pieces, which are not in the poll, just post or pm me...i want to keep this fair...sorry...

    I already pm'ed Pontemonti for a solution...

    EDIT: Ponte solved the problem...for the future polls there will be more options...but i can't change the existing one...

    First off I'd like to say congratulations to all who submitted an entry. Excellent work everybody! Unfortunately I could only vote on one and I chose Jull's adorable C.O.W. I think he succeded the most at creating a mascot for this thread and won my vote. Keep it up everyone and hope to see more of your C.O.W.'s each week.

    I too voted jull, it was a tough call; jull and fozzybears' being my favourite. In the end it was the cute eyes that won out over the teet grab...

    here's what i wanted to submit but I missed the deadline...

    well, my votes in. I Personally think mine's the awesomest-best one here, but I didn't vote for it in respect for the others - bleh ( I'd be surprised if I'll get any votes ) So I voted for Fozzys creation as I felt it suited best as a mascot, representing the essence of the weekly creations - and the various forms of usable media. yah... Good job everyone! I'm looking forward to the next week already!

    today

    I voted for arteric. The art is good plus I think it is the best for getting across the idea of the COW being a contest each week of a different creature drawing.
    Great job by all. I think all win!

    I Must say Murchie's is awesome (Most original IMHO) But I voted Matt's, because his entry has a lot of personality, which I think it is a very (if not the most) important thing talking about a mascot character. And in overall, I think it suits very well as a mascot for C.O.W.

    Everyone did a nice work too, and I would comment each one, but it would take a lot of time for me and my english, so please, forgive me.

    Thumbs up

    There are many great, congratulations to all!
    I love Matt Dixon's and LuisNCT's, but I decided to vote Jull because it's the one that better perform the idea of a mascot, its simple but powerful, it will work at any size and even as a 16x16 icon! even only the siluette.. :o
    congrats everybody!

    I thought there were alot of really exciting ideas but I have to go with Jull's design.
    I think it works the best overall, its clean, fun and is a good representation of what I think should be the mascot to represent a thread like this. Good work to all who participated, there were many great pieces. I'm looking forward to participating and seeing others work in this thread in the weeks to come. Good job everyone!

    Well it was tough but I ended up going back again and again to arteric for my vote. I think his illustration is very well composed and just says it all without any written description needed.

    LuisNCT gets my vote. I like to pose of the cow - looks like someone's about to get charged - and the way it's been painted. I just like it .

    Fozzy - no problem on the exclusion *sob* it's a bit of a dodgy drawing - I should have devoted more time to it.

    Awesome start as i already mentioned....

    I voted for Jull! Here my c&c for every image:

    Olsen:
    Many little details which are good ideas like the piercings on the teats, the inverted cow pattern, the gangster theme, cool gun with beautiful design, the C.O.W. text on the body etc...I think your piece was a blessing for this activity, good art demands more of its kind...update your sketchbook, mate!

    cartoonfox:
    I already told you in the posting-thread, and you know it, i know it, everyone knows it Add bodies to your heads! Other than that your linework is very dynamic and loose...i like it...looks promising!

    Jull:
    This one got my vote! It's a typical mascot i would say....that's what the topic wants...besides it's not a cow, which is good in my eyes...you don't believe how many members already asked me about "why are we supposed to draw cows"...YOU ARE NOT, ARGH! Great idea with the "COW"-writing tail of the creature...nice irony there...

    ZapRadon:
    Nice idea, looks like you tried mixing various creatures in one...i also was thinking of something like that at first...though the pose is a little bit awkward...the viewer would get a better impression with a different perspective...

    Thestral:
    This was one of my favs...Mootant, haha...very funny and good technical skills...i hope to see more from you for the next rounds...

    shadow:
    Quite disturbing piece, but nonetheless effective...the flashy colors are supporting the weird mix of this C.O.W....nice one!

    conundrum:
    The idea is simple, but brilliant...i think you needed more time for the piece to push the idea and add details...

    LuisNCT:
    I love the blocky style...works for mascots! Impressing how you achieved the 3d-effect of the creature itself and the branding with just few strokes...

    Matt Dixon:
    If the topic weren't mascot, you would get my vote for SURE! Your image was my favorite all the way long until the point where i had to think of a vote...and i decided upon the topic "mascot"...i just thought jull's piece is more a mascot...but i want to congrat you for the concept! And that you wrote your concept down...especially in this funny and creative style as it is...love your technique and skills...i really hope to see more from you the next rounds, Matt!

    Gaither:
    Very fresh and different work from the others! Cool rendering...i like weird stuff like that...though i think it's not as strong as a mascot...

    Stitchface:
    I like the optic of mixed creatures in your piece, but then again it disturbs me because of the same reason....confused? Me too I think you should have tried to get a more homogeneous look...the different parts look like stuck together, actually they are, but it doesn't work as a whole body i think...Nevertheless amazing rendering skills!!!

    arteric:
    I love the idea, but the image is more a "title screen" than a mascot...it would be hard to use only the cow as a mascot without the accessoires, because the cow is like an averag cow and just works with the costumes...

    Form:
    It works as a mascot, but same issue here as in cartoonfox' piece...looks like only a head to me...

    BIG BRUTICUS:
    Uuuuh.....nasty boy! Your image reminds me of some popart work...could work as a poster!

    guterrez:
    The creature is great! The viewer don't know what it is, it looks like nothing and everything...but this is exactly a good definition of the C.O.W.!!! Good approach and concept!

    Scarn:
    Working as a mascot, but not for the COW-activity Nevertheless i am happy that it reached a high evolution grade, haha!

    Gloklund:
    Hehe, this is funny! I love the cows look....sweet rendering on the monster!

    JOSHUATHEJAMES:
    I always loved the "flow" in your drawings...don't know how to describe it, but i think "flow" is a good description in my eyes...everything looks like flowing, no hard edges or corners, only "flow"...and i can feel the smell and the surface of this creature...not nice i tell you...as always superb quality and great touch to have you onboard...i hope you also will participate in future....i mean you started the most popular thread on ca i guess - the creature thread, which also was an inspiration for this activity!

    MURCHIE:
    A new face on board! And i think i really like it...your image is great! I LOVE the tits-tits, when you know what i mean, hehe...cool stuff...what about McNallyism? He should be interested in this activity...tell him to come and show us the real deal, hehe...

    Uziel:
    A cow is a cow is a cow You should invest more time into the idea before starting

    Baaaah!:
    Other way round compared to Uziel's: Your idea is good, but your work needs more time

    Hamsta:
    Work on details, on small areas, where the viewer can rest with his eye and watch some stuff...define ideas which raise your creature from the rest...

    PHEW...done!
