    Uziel:
    concept: It runs,jumps and swims thru sewer...and it smells.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    GreenTopaz:
    concept: 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...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Genital Eclipse:
    concept: 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.

    Xpose:
    concept: 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.

    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.

    shadoman:
    concept: Sewer Beast
    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.

    concept: Midnight Stinkers
    Log Report:
    James R. Zilk
    Patrol Area 614-a
    Midnight, 6-22-36
    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.

    Main Loop:
    concept: Sewer Boar
    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..

    redehlert:
    concept: Phylphs
    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.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ThrillzillA:
    concept: THE DEMANIGATOR
    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....

    quote from posting-thread:"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..."

    hallo There was only a WIP in the posting-thread...





    other entries, which made me thinking about taking them to the poll at all:

    My vote goes to shadoman :

    Love the story (though it reminds me of "The thing from the swamp" or so - don't know the title), but it's cool to imagine that there is something in the sewer like this lovely rendering too...

    other favs:

    Genital Eclipse:
    Awesome rendering and mood...but it seems that you "modelled" your concept after doing a cool sewer-creature Also the slightly humanoid look pushed me to shadomans entry...

    leckronium: Cool rendering as always and very creative concept!!! The creature itself isn't that breath-taking , but your concept called for this look...

    Has to be some of the best concept writing as a whole, well done everyone!
    My vote went to Shadowman - loved your story, the angle you chose was dynamic and all I wanted to see was more time on coloring the character with milky greys, blues, purples, etc. to marry with your greens. Great job!
    My runner up was Leckronium with a superbly funny story and very compelling sense of motion and character correlation with the story. Like Shadowman's, your creature was plausible. In fact, what I really liked about yours was that this was several creatures whereas Shadowman's was just a solo beastie....like I said, it was a tough call!
    Small turnout this week....makes it easy to do crits at least! I think I'll try to do some.
    Cheers,
    D

    Fozzy-

    I have absolutely no comprehension of what you mean in your first comment.

    The second comment about being humanoid. I really don't care. It's a creature, loosen up a tad.

    I voted for Xpose, because he's my boy and I can see that his hardwork and constant contribution to this thread is paying off.

    Easy, if you don't agree with a comment/crit you can just ignore it, you don't have to scream it out.
    I love your creature but it looks more like an alienqueen than a sewercreature to me.

    Mike, thats some f*cked up muppet you got there . Very amusing

    GreenTopaz: very nice, vrey slimy, like a sewer. I think I'll vote for you.

    shadoman: Nice creature, looks mutated

    redehlert: The anatomy doesn't feel right

    Main Loop: Try to be original. a boar with a rats tail it's so...not original.

    Even though the number of entries was a bit disappointing, there was some great variety on display here. Great jobs from Mike, GreenTopaz and Leckronium. My favourite this time around was Shadoman though - you get my vote.

    Yes Fozzy, I didn't get to work on my pic any more, it's been a quite labourious week for me.

    My vote goes to GreenTopaz - Great picture, really slick and clean presentation. Plus it's a cool creature.

    Uziel-

    I can't scream things out. I lost my vocal chords back in the 80s due to a mishap while building a fort out of pillows and forks.

    Hey Uziel - thanks for the comment, care to expound on that thought so I may see what you're seeing? It'd be most appreciated.
    Cheers!

    Very cool entries this week, not very many but, still pretty cool. Shadowmans, Green Topaz, Genial Eclipse, leckromium was pretty neat too.

    But ultimately I had to vote for Matt Dixon, awesome work!!
