    concept: Skudge- a cousin to a leech it finds it's way in your body through contaminated water (in egg form). Then after it hatches it travels through you intestinal track using it's arms/ flippers. It secretes a chemical so you never now when it's feeding but you definitely can feel it moving around. Infection of this dude can prove to be fatal if not detected early.

    Gloklund:
    concept: Here we have an adult Malerondia Analicthys, better known as an Anal Fish Noodler.
    The Anal Fish Noodler can grow to 1-2cm from snout to tail barbs; they are common in a variety of barnyard animals from goats and sheep to pigs and cattle. Like many parasitic organisms, they feed off the hosts blood supply firmly imbedding itself in the hosts anal cavity. Here the Anal Fish Noodler burrows its snout into the fleshy walls and feasts unbeknownst to the victim. However, not as common in human beings their egg larvae are still transmitted via undercooked meat products from these farm animals. There have been several documented cases of children succumbing to the ill favored effects of these parasites through ingestion, some of the tell-tale signs of infestation are high fever with vomiting as well as gastric pains and anal weeping.
    It is very important to address the issue of infestation with a hot vinegar enema and an appropriate dose of Tylenol. Left untreated patients are susceptible to high anxiety, night sweats, fever blisters in the anus, horrendous anal itching and uncontrollable stools. Remember to always wash your hands and always cook your food thoroughly.

    Prometheus|ANJ:
    concept: The Itarian celibacy colony on Harthos 4 had to evacuate two weeks after deployment due to a most unpleasant encounter with the larvae form of the indigenous Proton beasts. It attaches itself to the body of a host, which is normally a giant mudskipper which dwell in the swamp regions on Harthos 4.
    However, they also developed a taste for the colonist's... rear regions. Several of the Itarian colonists actually died from embarrassment (dying from 'emotional peaks' is a actually common cause of death among the prude Itarians).
    The Proton beast lavae feeds on the excrement of its host, and by attaching itself to the anus of the host it assures that no competitors get access to the 'food'. Its digestion system is so developed that the lavae doesn't actually have an anus. During a period of two weeks it will grow to 20 times it's original size and a diameter of 40 centimeter. At this point the host is too encumbered and is no longer able to gather food. Because the host is no longer useful, the larvae detaches.
    After detachment it quickly cocoons, and a fully developed Proton beast hatches only a week later. The Proton beast got its name from the fact that it can shoot lethal proton beams through its eyes!

    concept: Fido had been losing weight recently, and upon further investigation they found this "little" critter. Latching on to the walls of the large intestine with its clawed tentacles makes sure everything that goes that way goes through the worm too and leaving through its rear opening.
    Pictures show the worm with its former host, "Fido, who can now be reunited with his owner after a horribly long stay at the vet) and the worm posed next to a human for size refernce.

    bracomadar:
    concept: Butt duck
    This parasite can only enter your body if you sit naked on a raw duck. For those foolish enough to sit naked on a raw duck and contract this horrible little critter, death will not come quickly. The Butt Duck will stick his barbed tail into the wall lining in the intestines. It will then lay its eggs into the bloodstream. The eggs will travel to the victim's brain where they hatch and cause havoc there. The victim will suffer brain damage, resulting in a waddling walk, constant quacking, and an uncontrollable urge to swim. Death soon follows these symptoms when the infected individual jumps off a cliff/tall building believing he can fly.

    Thestral:
    concept: This is one creature that refuses to accept anybody else’s views as correct except its own. It attaches itself to Internet forum threads and proceeds to spew out mean comments then feeds off the negative responses that follow. Most viewers describe this stubborn little creature’s attitude as being very anal and therefore dub them "anal parasites".

    MIKECORRIERO:
    concept: usually most humans are infected when they become in contact with some kind of rusted metal. This little critter cuts it's way through the anal cavity with its sharp claw like feet of which there are 4. When it finds a nice cozy spot it likes, it burrows on in and attaches itself firmly with its hind legs and begins to feed. When the anal parasite reproduces, "KISS your ASS goodbye" Thousands of small larva-like babies will begin to reproduce and eat at a rapid rate until the host has become deceased. It's an awful sight as thousands of these gnat sized parasites pour out of the body in thier adult forms.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Baaaah!:
    concept: Aquatica Anallius Lodgius
    Also so known as the 'SkinnyDippers Surprise'. A water bourn parasite that gains access to the human body via the annus. Once inside it claws its way up the annal passage till it reaches the connection point to the bowel. It then lodges itself in the pipe using the spines down the sides of its body, with its head protruding inside the bowel. It then collects lumps of plop using the arms situated on top of its head and slowly consumes them via the tendrils located in the mouth region. Waste materials are ejected through pipes at the base of the body.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Matt Dixon:
    concept: Unlike many anal parasites mentioned here, the 'Sewer Vampire' does not feed on the host's excrement, nor does it pose any serious health risks. This unusual predator makes it's home in large sewers, and feeds by sending it's long proboscis along small waste pipes fed by domestic toilets where the 'mouth' ( sometimes known as the 'strawberry' ) rests out of sight in the U-bend. When the toilet is in use, the strawberry is quickly inserted through the host's relaxed sphincter, and a hollow barb is released which punctures the wall of the anus allowing the creature to suck blood from the victim. Though quite invasive, the feeding process is usually unnoticed by the host as the strawberry is studded with glands which secrete a powerful contact anaesthetic. Interestingly, a side-effect of the strawberry's secretions is to produce a sensation of mild euphoria and well-being in the host, meaning that the brief feeding cycle is rarely interrupted and may go some way to explain why some humans seem to enjoy long periods sitting idle in the bathroom.
    The creature's tastes seem to be quite discerning, and it will often revisit a host which it finds palatable many times - it is estimated that most of us will experience a 'relationship' of this kind with this strange animal at least once during our lifetimes.

    leckronium:
    concept: The dreaded Chairasite
    It's also a good place to warn you about a parasite I've heard of. Although I don't think it's called a parasite but a chairasite. No one really knows for sure what one looks like since no one has ever lived to tell about an encounter with one. I illustrated for you what I know based on myths and stories handed down from generations. The "chairasites" actually form a creature known to take on the form of a very comfortable chair in its adult form. A weary individual, looking for a place of rest, cannot resist the urge to sit on its very generous offering. Once the individual sits they break what is actually the egg sac on the creatures back. The tentacles hanging from the horns attach to the victim and prevent them from escaping.The larvae then enter the individual through the posterior and proceed to digest everything from the inside out. The adult chairasite then sheds its victim to wander off to die having fulfilled its purpose in life and leave its offspring a chance for survival., This cycle is very quick and unavoidable if one does not know what to look out for. The only advice I can give is be careful what you sit on. It eventually could bite you in the arse. Good luck!

    Leion:
    concept: Rectumus Geliatus: The specimen on this picture probably wont make
    it. The Rectumus Geliatus, or Bungworm as it's commonly called,
    normally dwells in the warm waters of the rivers and springs in Southern
    Africa and normally chooses larger water-animals as hosts, such as
    hippos or Crocs.
    Humans carrying Bungworms is very unusual, but my guess is that
    this man spent a lil too long in the swimming around on his last safari
    trip.
    The Bungworm mother can spray up to 800 eggs into one single host.
    However only one of the larvas survives by eating it's siblings.
    The one depicted here is in it's final stage. As it leaves it's first nest
    to join the water it swells up to almost ten times it's previous size,
    both to maintain the heat and to look more intimidating.

    Hanuka:
    concept: Endoparasitos Godzillum (couldnt come up with anything more stupid)
    Named after his first known host, this parasite descends from early shrimp-like lifeforms and lives in open waters. It is of microscopic size and usually gets swallowed with sea-water by animals and swimmers.
    Its resistent exoskeleton can be shut completely and thus protects this little fellow from stomach acid. It ends up in your guts/anus, where it nourishes from things you don't want to hear about. Really.

    fungi:
    concept: this sucker lies in wait on beaches near human inhabited areas, buried a few feet below the surface of the sand. feeling the vibrations of a human passerby above, it blasts from its hole and into the unsuspecting humans anus using its gas filled sack at its centre. once inside it digs its claws into the anus wall and sends its slime covered tendrals through the body of its host where they drain nutrients and send them back to its body. the host eventually dies of a combination of starvation, excessive blood loss and a compacted bowel. the parasite remains inside the decomposing corpse and takes full advantage of the nutrient filled flesh. it eventually slithers from the corpse and attempts to make it back to a sandy area, rolling on its side using its tendrals to pull itself along. this species has decreased emmensly since the invention of pants and has been forced to pray on other large unclothed creatures such as cattle and sealions.

    Jull:
    concept: Polylumbricus Vampyrus™
    It's a parasite which takes big aquatic mammals as host, it manages to get in along host's prey and goes through the digestive system to the extretory system. It pinch any "wall" with its main needle, and then, with his multiple tentacles, starts sucking blood from the host and eating feces (yes, multitasking!) as a nutritive complement in order to engender healthy breed. Young specimens will leave the host in search of a new one because it is a very territorial race. Mature specimens won't share a host either.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BIG BRUTICUS:
    concept: This parasite is a cybernetic life-form created by corporations for marketing purposes. It's placed within food stuffs in its compact dormant form. Once ingested it expands in the lower intestines and roots through our waste to catalogue the food we eat and compile data to be sent to the corporations R&D department. The parasite also has defensive capabilities to dispatch other marketing parasites it comes in contact with.

    Fozzybar:
    concept: This is peynindi assus, a really nasty parasite, which is living in the anus of humans and animals...they don't know much about this lil' critter, since they just found a few individuals yet...
    Some scientist are of the opinion that this creatures juvenile form looks like a condom and it is the result of genetic experiments by fundamental believers...who spread this "condoms" on to the market to punish the godless infidels which are scorning the word of god by using condoms...
    Then again the majority of science believes that the creatures shape is perfectly adapted to its purpose of a parasitic living in the anus...a victory of evolution and nature...
    So this recent fond of science - peynindi assus - is the latest example of human-being split into two parties...religion and science...

    arteric:
    concept: "The Surge Worm"
    The Vermis Undisonus, or Surge Worm, has been nicknamed the “Puppeteer Parasite” by the scientific community due to the unique nature of it’s parasitic invasion. It’s enormous size at adulthood (larger specimens have reached 25 feet in length and a weight of nearly 1 ton) make it one of those rare parasites that remain outside of it’s host during the feeding cycle. The Surge Worm has no developed digestive system of its own, and has evolved an interesting way of getting it’s food supply. The worm has three elongated upper appendages that invade a host through the rectum. Over a period of 24 to 48 hours, the worm not only infiltrates the full length of the digestive tract, it also extends a secondary tubular feeler that embeds into the hosts spinal column. Through thousands of small synaptic tentacles, the “Puppeteer” takes over control of the hosts nervous system. While not capable of absolute control, the “Puppeteer” can manipulate all major appendages as well as the chewing and swallowing functions of it’s various hosts, and render them unable to resist or attempt escape. It can then force the host to ingest food which it absorbs after the material has been digested by it’s new “external stomach”. The Surge Worm can live off an individual host for varying lengths of time depending on it’s size and capacity for food consumption.
    One recorded case of human contact involves German biologist Otto Weldkampt. In August of 1989, Mr. Weldkampt disappeared from a survey team exploring a remote Central American mountain range. Ten months later, and 60 miles away, construction workers digging the foundation on a new resort uncovered a Surge Worm’s lair, and found Mr. Weldkampt in the “Puppeteer’s” grip being used as a host. The workers killed the creature and rushed the biologist to a medical facility where he passed away forty-eight hours later due to massive internal injuries, extreme malnutrition and dehydration. Before his passing, a translator speaking to Mr. Weldkampt was able to determine that he had spent the full 10 months in the Surge Worm’s grip. Although unable to control his own body, he was completely aware during the entire infestation. An experience that had not only left him physically devastated, but completely insane as well.

    Pantmonger:
    concept: Plated barb fish
    The 'Plated barb fish' also known as the 'Hook head' is a small parasite, about the size of an infants finger, that makes its home in the human bowel. Here it swims up and down stream as if lead by whimsy and the currents until is finds a suitable area rich in nutrients and where blood flow is near the surface. Once this area is discovered it imbeds its head into the lining of the bowel wall, hooking itself in place so it can not be easily dislodged. Its barb causes the subject to bleed mildly and suffer minor spasms and contractions due to the irritant in the bowl wall, this stirs things up a bit and allows the parasite to ‘sit back’ and absorb the rich flow through the exposed osmotic membrane on the back of its head.

    Stitchface:
    concept: 'Tyranus Nitidus Rectis'(slang term- "Flower[ing] Butt Worm" Recently discovered on the second moon of Migos4 of the Phalactus System. Discovered in cave-like rock formations, by colonists surveying the moon. Slime fungus would feed on the minerals in the caves and would excrete an acid like waste, which in turn would errode a complex laticework of tunnels similar to swiss cheese. The fungus would then build up on the inside of these tunnels to form a soft narrow tissue-like lining similar to certain features of the human anatomy. The worms live in the tunnels feeding on the fungus and other food sources found in the intestine-like tunnels. Since the conditions were similar to our colons, they quickly adapted to the new hosts[us]. They reproduce by a form of air born, spore-like eggs that float along until being lodged in soft moist substances with the right conditions. We believe that the first humans to be infected either inhaled them or drank water contaminated with them. They mature rapidly, starting out male then change to female at the end of their life cycle. They can easily be treated when in the immature male satges but must be removed surgically when matured to female (spawning) stage. When ready to spawn the female opens up like a flower, with a proboscus needle in the center, with an eggsac on the end, spewing forth thousands of eggs. The average size of a mature female is arround 9-12 inches in length, with largest known case being 27 inches in length. The head is actually the red squid shaped end while the flower is on the rear of the parasite, which protrudes from the hosts anus looking like a flower blooming.

    vigostar:
    concept: The Anus Asperatusphlyius is one of the most common parasites known to man. Commonly known as the "Super Size Me" parasite. This parasite is created when cholesterol build-up is formed by eating most fast foods or heavily enduced cholesterol foods. The parasite makes its home in the intestinal system and creates a blockage which makes humans fat, sloppy, and very constipated. It is not known how this parasite mutated into it's now known form. What is known is that it hates fiber thus, by eating a high fiber diet can be destroyed. So, remember the next time you enter McDonalds and want to order those super sized fries.... You have a friend just waiting to be born!

    I voted for Gloklunds. The reason is that i think his parasite looks the most like the real deal, I just wouldn't like that thing up my butt... That goes for all the creatures here, but many of them, although great pieces of work, are too bulky or too funny to be completely believable. When it comes to anal parasites, I think less is more.

    this was a hard decision, honestly. there are lots of good concepts and well-crafted artworks, but to me Prom and Stitchface took the cake.

    In the end, i voted for Stitchface, but it was really on par.
    Prom: You hit my sense of humor with that concept. Design and Execution are incredibly good, just as usual with your work. Your art is some of the most inspiring on here - so you better be posting more stuff again

    Slick design on yours, too, Stitchface. Linework and Coloring are top of the notch. Good lightning, especially on the male one. These colors freak me out. The overall concept is well done just as well.

    So here goes the thumb! C.O.W. - #003: Anal Parasite - VOTING!!!
    Its great to see so many people contributing

    I voted for arri. The colours are quite nice, and so is the textural feel created by the hairs. Im not sure if those are eyes/face or not on its body but the ambiguity kind of appeals to me.

    My other faves were fozzys - really great way to capture that awkward/uncomfortable grossness!!

    And fungi's - i always love your work man.

    Well done to all. Whats the next tawpeek?

    I voted for BIG BRUTICUS

    It's a very interesting concept with a nice concept-illustration...i wasn't sure about voting for him since the word "cybernetic" bothered me...i want real creatures in this activity, but at the end the creative concept and cool realization convinced me

    other favs:

    arteric:
    It was a decision between BIG BRUTICUS' one and yours...i loved the story behind this image and also your though of an anal parasite was the most different from the general approach...poor Otto...

    Jull:
    Lovely rendering as always...the creature has a great 3d-feeling...

    Prometheus:
    Hehe...awesome description there!

    Arri.:
    Excellent one! I love the "real" feeling of it, looks like a photograph of the creature floating in a liquid...cool!

    Matt Dixon:
    Very cool idea to set the creature in the sewer system and wandering to the closets from where it taps the victim, hehe...great concept, i especially like the details, like "...the 'mouth' ( sometimes known as the 'strawberry')..."...hehe...

    Great round everyone!

    I voted for Prometheus. The concept is well executed. The little purple details make it look really "äckligt". But this was really though one, lots of great entrys. It was proms "geeky" description" that made me choose his...

    Wow. Voting on these doesn't get any easier, eh? My vote went to arteric - all things considered, I thought it was the most original concept, I enjoyed the description and the image was fun!

    It was a close call, though - also in the running for me were arri for the great image, Prom for the overall coolness of the pic and concept, fungi because I have a very soft spot for his stuff, and Mike and davi because their pics made me feel a bit sick. Everyone deserves credit for producing such a varied selection of nasty bum-dwelling creatures, though!

    Roll on number four!

    I voted him because I see an excellent equilibrium between concept, design, originality and execution, which makes it highly believable.

    It was a very very very hard decision, this round was so great, neat entries everyone, but only one vote... It was a tough battle between objectivity and subjectivity... not sure about the stronger -_-

    Now, Next round!

    There were alot of really great and disturbing ideas this time around, and I had a hard time deciding which one I felt had everything going for it. The execution on alot of these were incredible (Julls, Proms, Matt D, fozzy, Hanuka, fungi, scarn, stitchface). It makes it so hard to not want to just vote for a pretty picture. And some of the concepts were really well thought out but the art might not have been as strong as the initial idea. The one that in my mind feels like it captured all the criteria was Stitchface's Tyranus Nitidus Rectis. Not that I would want to have any kind of "relationship" with any of these anal parasites this is the one that scares me most. I don't want to even think about having one of these in me, wreathing and wriggling around in my lower intestine. All the while I'm thinking, "It's just a little gas."
    Nice job Stitchface. You freaked me out and won my vote.

    Holy C.O.W. Batman, That stinks!!

    Oy, this was tough. I think I spent an hour going back and forth rereading, re-evaluating everyone's works. All of these are just fantastic!

    In the end though, Hanuka's got first with me. The eye on the thing really got me. I kept going back to it. The whole piece though was great. But the eye gave it a rather malicious intelligence that I found disturbing. It's bad enough to have some mean crawl up your ass, but when it knows it's mean and has got you in it's power, that's even worse!

    Seriously close second: Stitchface - that thing was just freaky!

    Third: arteric - absollutley hysterical

    Runner Up: toss up between Thestral (very funny!) and Prometheus|ANJ (Great rendering/description)

    Cheers all, on to #4!
