    The winner will pick the topic for the next round from now on...(by looking in the topic-ideas thread), maybe this will motivate you lazy asses to punch even more great entries out of your brains...

    bluefooted picked the topic for this round as she was the winner of the last round (Dream/Nightmare Eater).

    What a coincedence, I was just practicing painting clouds yesterday...

    I think I need a better tinfoil hat to block the conceptart satellites from reading my mind.

    I saw this topic and immediately started on an idea I've been kicking around. I guess I just needed the extra motivation:

    In the distant future, when the mega-fauna have again evolved from the lesser creatures, you will no longer be worried about the seagulls' droppings on your head.

    The Titan Caelum Balaena absorbs hydrogen gas from the air around it and stores the gas in several large, external glands on its back and in its throat, allowing it to keep afloat. It feeds on flocks of birds, and maybe the occassional unlucky skydiver. Their only real enemy is a lightning storm, as the lightning bolts could ignite the hydrogen gas, and then you have charbroiled TCB for a year.

    [edit] okay, had some more time to put into this. Just some noodling here and there, but I think over all it reads better and there's more consistancy.

    That was fun damn clouds... pain in the ass

    -Daniel

    [edit] Okay, so I'm not really willing to lose the lines entirely, only because that throws it into a different style of illustration, and one that I'm not really suuuuper fond of, which is completely rendered. Also, I just love lines. However! I agree that they needed to be lightened, mainly in terms of weight, but I also got rid of a lot of sketchy marks... so yeah, I hope it looks better Thanks for the heads up guys!

    hmm i'm not sure if i will participate on this one.though the topic is interesting i can't get much out of it.
    nice pic daniel. i'd get rid of the black lines on the creature though-it doesn't at all fit the rest of the pic.

    Always think about:
    lighting! design! perspective! proportion!
    And (self)motivation is still everything.

    Phuzion - awesome pic man! This is the kind of stuff I had in mind when I suggested it in the topics forum. I'll kinda agree with Carnifex though. I wouldn't say get rid of the line but is there a way to lighten it? Because I do like your linework it's just a little too harsh right now.

    nephilim-nice painting, but the actual creatures get overpowered, especially the one in the hair, by her face. Maybe make them larger, and more detailed, focusing more on them then her. The one in the psychic energy/hair is too well hidden.

    C.O.W. - #013: Cloud Dweller

    A few details to add and im still refining tha description.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    These titanic lifeforms are in fact plants that grow to mammoth size and can live for thousands of years.After 100 years firmly planted to the earth they detach and float to a height of 3000 metres and higher.By this age its hydrogen producing sack-like body measures 6-9 metres diameter,the long sinewy tendrils it slowly develops only after it has detached.The main body reaches full size after 300 years and can measure 30-40 metres diameter,and its tendrils fully grown can measure up to 150-220 metres long!.Feeds on both sunlight and anything unfortunate enough to fly into its mass of tendrils which acts like a huge net.Rather than drawing food to its huge mouth it digests its victim where they lay entangled by excreting an highly acidic liquid through small openings and breaking down the creature on the spot,absorbing the liquifying remains.They illuminate brilliant bright colors in the night sky,some accounts of groups of tens of thousands lighting up the night have been reported.
