- for any questions or help go here:
note: The deadline won't be EXACTLY after a week...it can last up to 24 hours more, i am human and have to work also, you know
Post your creature for this week!

ahh this topic is right up my alley.thanx foz
edit: i think one major problem with the last two cows was that it restricted the users too much in what the creature does. i mean coz a sewer beast can live in any way,but a gluttonous emperor can only eat too much and a hill stomper can only stomp hills...
thus their looks are restricted to being fat in one case and solid in the other...
well,just my final rant on that.
back on topic.

Selfcrit:The light draws the attention away from the head. Hope i find the time to fix it.
If you need some reference for sewers

can't...resist.. urge.. to.. post..
Rogaw ~ the sewer beast
This misshapen hulk prowls the undercity always in search of a next meal. Meals can be anything from rats, alligators to maintenance workers.
The reason for it's existence is unclear but perhaps it is no coincidence this beast resides in a part of the sewer directly below a hospital specialising in plastic surgery. After all, where else is the hospital gonna dump all their chemicals, bodily fluids and cut-away organs...
(( still blurry and dark I know..))
ps it has 2 legs but I couldn't fit the left(viewer)one in so it's behind the other leg. The creature is on the move anywayz.

my first COW viscous sewer slug..
for description..um... it pretty much spends its days crawling around the deeper and darker parts of city sewers, eating up anything that ends up stuck underneath it or on its slime trails... though most living things know to avoid them, cause of the horrible squelching noises it makes as it moves on land...
GreenTopaz: Awesome first entry. Keep it up.
Ok, possessed i appreciate that you didn't give up, i am happy about that, which makes me not feel like the art-director from hell, but i think i have to say that i can't see a real creature on your image...there is no clear anatomy, which makes me say "ah...ok, there it is...there is the head with its eyes and the body etc"...there are colored areas which look like a very very blurry anatomy of something which could be a creature...there is no real definition, but that's what concept-art is about - there is a detaile concept behind so there must be something defined to show...Originally Posted by possessed
Please try to create something which doesn't look like a riddle for the viewer...
The Moolarcher Sewer Beast is not known for it's witty banter or poliltical views, but for it's consitent appetite for human waste. The Moolarcher dangles from the ceilings of urban sewers suckling up bits of the brown wonder water below with it's dangly doo-dads or 'suckle duckles'.
The Moolarcher has a tendency to scare away most other sewer inhabitants due to it's constant wailing, which sounds sort of like "mooo-cockkkkkkkkaaaaaa-noooooooo-pantalonesssssssssssssssssssss'. Which in Moolarcher means 'ba-da-ba-da-ba i'm loving it.'
On a side note, if I were a Moolarcher, i'd play Guild Wars 24/7.
LOL! I just flippin' pissed my pants - way to get the McDonalds branding theme in there!Originally Posted by Genital Eclipse
And, the image rocks too.
Genital Eclipse - I agree. Badass image and great concept!
Green Topaz - I really like the composition and overall design. The ooze looks especially nice.
I hope to finish mine tonight... we'll see.
holy crap now it's gonna get a tough competition!
if i had to be nitpicky i'd have to say it look more like a character than a creature-most of all the "techy" stuff.
Not to be confused with the term Metrosexual the Metrosaur lives in the sewers of New York City. It's main source of food are the giant rats that live in the underground maze. Two times a year they are nearly killed off (Thanksgiving day and Super Bowl Sunday) by the extreme amounts of sewage, but the food supply is so sufficient they don't dare leave.
not that great but I actually got one in this time!
^keep me going by visiting my sketchbook^
LMFAO! "Brown Wonder Water"
Awesome concept Genital Eclipse!
RIBBITS - Don't ever flush mr. frog down the toilet, unless your 100% damn sure he's dead..because 20 years later you can bet your ass after he pumbles you..he'll make sure YOUR DEAD.
So its reaaaaly late and i only had tonight to finish up my work in progess ..and this is what i came up with, hope it doesnt suck too much
Alexander Heilbronner was Hitler’s top nuclear research scientist in Berlin, Germany in 1943. In June of 1944, he received a special order to build a massive new weapon, he took a team of specialists to Dresden, Germany to a small, research facility 100 feet below in a cavern. One day, after months of failed experiments, he went down near the underground stream to eat lunch. He was there confronted by two of Hitler’s assassins about his lack of progress on the new weapon. A struggle ensued, he was shot and fell into the water where he floated downstream.
With all of the raw, nuclear waste that was dumped into this waterway from his experiments, he was mutated into the Klärschlamm Rohling, or Sewer Beast. Some say they can still hear him to this day, hissing and slithering through the sewers of Dresden, eating anything that comes in its path.
Now that's what I'm talkin' bout Shadowman....that's class act material. Great concept text too.
hell yeah-awesome concept! klärschlamm rohling-ingenious. (yes i understand the real meaning,and it's not "sewer beast" )
Thanks guys. I appreciate it.
Carnifex, what is the exact meaning? I just went on some online translation site and took a shot... I probably offended an entire slew of people in that.
nah,t'is ok,it goes into the direction. the exact meaning would be "sewage sludge brute".
(as far as i can come up with something)
edit: we still have tomorrow to submit our entries,right? RIGHT?
bc i've got the concept but need to work out my final rendition.

Patrol Area 614-a
On my last rounds of the night before my shift was over, I decided to head east to get a cup of coffee before heading home. Taking the back alley way, parallel to Front St., I witnessed a strange event that locals say happen every night, the running of the Midnight Stinkers.
My first sighting was odd. All I could see was a manhole cover running towards me with what looked like a shadow carrying it from underneath. It ran by me quickly, not even giving me a glance to see what I was or what I was going to do. I got out of the car and ran after it, not because I didn't know what it was, but rather it had taken a piece of city property and I wanted to make sure it was put back to avoid any further accidents.
When I got to the end of the alley I was surprised to see more coming from all different directions. Some ran alone while some ran in packs as if they were racing. I lost track of the one I was chasing, as it darted off into another alley. I spotted a pair this time that were rather slow, slower than the first one I chased, and decided to follow them to see where they were headed. After about a block and a half there was a sewer with no lid and both seemed to be headed directly for it. The smaller of the two managed to get to it first and dove head first down the hole, closing the entrance with the cover it was carrying on its head. The other slammed into the cover but got right back up and continued on, apparently, looking for another opening. I followed it some more, passing fewer beasts as the minutes ticked by, and finally to an open hole that was three blocks away from where I got out of the car. After finally catching up I realized that everything was back to normal. I walked back to the car and drove around looking for any openings that didn't have a cover yet could not find one.
I would like to suggest a study that marks each sewer lid with a specific marking and tracks it to its new spot each night. This, I think, would help us understand these creatures better and might help solve some of the city's problems. One thing I did notice was that during that whole time, all I could smell was raw sewage. So it might not be that easy.
Large claws help it dig underground to find its favorite sludge and refuse.. it can consume twice its bodyweight in garbage daily. It would be great for humans if it didnt break through sewer pipes with its teeth to find food..
Phylphs are loathsome, wandering creatures inhabiting southern subteranean waterways scrounging for any bloated meal that floats on by. An incredible sense of smell and sight aides them in their scavenging ways. Their cares are few and find the sewer systems to work quite nice at growing the nutrient rich shrooms that sprout upon their shoulders to supplement their odd cuisine.
Ah well, you get the idea....and I'm tired.
I hope I made the deadline, finished it at school just now.
This little creature the size of an orange lives in the sewers. But why is he called Demanigator ? Well his catchphrase is:"If you are doing your business like a girl, your in for a raise!!. He will attack people when they least espect it , the toilet. Let's say your on teh toilet and you going to take a whizz. He will wrap his long tail around a sewage pipe or roster in the sewer then climb up the toilet, defalting and inflating to crawl across the drainage pipe of the toilet. He then will stay at it's place and wait for it's pray to take a comfy seat on the toilet. He especially like the guys peeing sittign down (living in the sewer doesn't mean he likes to be pooped on) becasue he got a clear shot at the good old twins. He take a launch at your ghoulies, and if he gets them he will wrap around them and he plunges his teeth around your marbles still holding on to his anchor point in e sewer. You then can try and make a run for it, but remember this critter got strong jaws and ditto tail so leaving the toilet is not as easy (or painless ) as one may think. If you van get off the toilet he will still keep his position and continually act as a parasite on your sac. When leaving or getting agitated he will bite the whole thing off. You better buy them MC hammer parachute pants....
