    Cow C.O.W. - #022: CC Evil Supply Creature - VOTING!!!

    ROUND #022 VOTING

    Topic: CC Evil Supply Creature

    Deadline for the voting: Thursday, 29 September 2005

    Posting thread (closed):
    http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=51960[/url]



    GIVEN CONCEPT:

    CC Evil Supply Creature:

    We need a supply creature for the evil faction. This fellow needs to be pretty huge, slow-moving and have some way to carry trees, masonry and other supplies about. We're in a classic fantasy setting, but we don't want to see any trolls or giant orcs! Remember the evil faction's identifying colours are red and black - we need both to be obvious in your design.







    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    possessed:
    concept: Okadon
    The larger these beasts get, the more weight they can carry. They can be seen strolling around the ravaged landscape pulling a cart made of bones and wood. The Rejnic load these carts with prisoners, trees for stoking the fires of their hellpits and other supplies for their evil ways.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    AndrewLey:
    concept: The towering Naadsakk beasts can easily cross even the most hostile terrain, with their long and powerful legs. Massive amounts of war supplies can be suspended from the animals back allowing easy access for the ground crew.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Teigrob:
    concept: For all your seige machine-building needs, look no further than model XXLPachyQ9: he slashes, he trims, and he neatly loads the heavy logs onto the waiting wagon pulled conveniently behind him (wagon not included) for your expendable battlefodder to pull into place! From the celebrated black labs of those finest purveyors of magical creatures: Mssrs Bimswanger & Tiddlepunk.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    gitsune:
    concept: The catterpillar unit is slower and has lower defenses than the supply unit of the good faction (giant komodo dragon thing.) However it makes up for these drawbacks by it's ability to climb steep surfaces with it's full load. Also, if you spend some ressources on it, it can coccoon and turn into a giant moth bomber ready to drop deadly phosphorus balls on the enemy.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Evil_Sloth:
    concept: As the tribes of the west an east congrigated into the centre of the great plains they made peace with eachother and began building fortresses to protect their alliance from the wild raiders.
    To supply these huge fortifications giant wulrons were chosen because of their emense size and there ability to lubricate the ground with glands on their fins and slide across the emense plains with ease.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Azrael:
    concept: Discovered deep inside the volcanic caverns of the black planet. Due to it's sole diet of sulfer rich volcanic rock, it's stench is know to kill any living plants within a 50 feet radius. When fed rich sulferous rock this mighty beast can pull over three hundred times it's own weight. Max speed for this creature without a load is about 3 knotts.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    gothfox:
    concept: Used by Evil Armies everywhere for it's immense strength and size. Once tought only to be a giant pest until it was tamed and trained to haul supplies or even Armies to their next battle grounds. this beastie can also protect your cargo by showering attackers with a molten secretion. Perhaps you would like to transport your castle to a new land and conquer the weak.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Danilo:
    concept: Bearephant
    Half bear, half elephant, naturaly greyish colour but coloured in red for military reasons (fear, agresion and so). His head is tied up so he cant feel nothing but painable orders of his master. They left just proboscis enter free, so he can eat his liquid meal.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    panda:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    wassermelone:
    concept: The Brobdingnagian
    These huge beasts were never natural. The dark magics used by the Empire twisted many creatures, but perhaps none with such... unforseen consequences as the Brobdingnagian. The size of it was initially unintended but quickly studied and turned to a beast of war. But the optimal size for speed and aggressiveness was quite a bit smaller than the Brobdingagian. Yet just because of the sheer size of the thing it was still immensely hard to kill and was turned to supplying the armies of the Empire. So immense that many times it never even noticed the enemy attacking it...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MIKECORRIERO:
    concept: This giant beast was a cross-breed specially designed by the evil faction, an elite group of murderers and thieves. The Red Faction is a monstrosity created to haul lumber, masonry, cannons, and weapons. Although the Red Faction is slow it makes up for its lack of speed through shear brute strength. On top of its massive size and colossal strength, the Red Faction is equipped heavily in spiked armor, not that it would necessarily need it, if it were ever attacked.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Oregano:
    concept: The Dhrakava is the main munitions and siege craft transport used by the Army of the Four Swords from the northern reaches of the Dhaggorlands.
    In it's natural habitat, the temperate deserts to the east, the Dhrakava lives in herds feeding on local vegetation and migrating with the seasons.
    Demonstrating their brutality, the Army of the Four Swords breed the beasts to feed on the slain foes and captured enemies who are ill fit for slavery. Dhrakava Keepers (shown lower right) sharpen the beasts teeth as they grow to accomodate their adjusted diet. Their horns and headplate are frequently decorated by their Keepers to designate both the clans they belong to and often the campaigns they have seen. These horns and plates are closely guarded treasures of the Keeper Clans.
    In subjugating the Dhrakava, the beast is ritually run through with it's pulling aparatus, thus sealing it's fate, and identity, as a beast of burdon of the Army of the Four Swords.
    Dhrakava live roughly 30 years, and are about as intelligent as dogs, capable of following simple monosyllabic voiced commands. They can haul up 20 tons of equipment seven to twelve miles a day in good weather. What they lack in speed they make up in strength.
    The Dhrakava pictured above is hauling a Four Swords seige engine. The Four Swords Army is seen in the background moving out from the capitol of Ahvelkava in the high mountain desert of Umbrak in the Dhaggorlands.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Carnifex:
    concept: The Huurrk
    Is a damn stubborn bird. It's very mean aswell,and thus still pretty valuable in battle against material thiefs. It's used by the evil faction for transporting trees and other stuff. Usually it has a mark on it by the appropriate owner.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    princeofhappiness:
    concept: Ruuk, The Red Giant
    Ruuk lived deep in the caves of the northern caverns of Krah'nal in solitude. The Kshaar people, known for their infinitely evil ways, travelled for years in order to hunt this great beast. After a decade of struggle, they finally managed to render the beast hypnotised and unable to retaliate, using a specially crafted clasp which they fastened around him. Now this great beast is the fortune of the Kshaar, and is used for carrying its warriors and materials.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    br0ken_spirit:
    concept: The basic supply unit for the Evil Faction is large and slow moving. The creature has four additional arms on its back, which it uses to grab and carry on its back trees, masonry, and other supplies. It can also carry prisoners.
    These arms are also the primary melee weapon of the supply unit, it can strike multiple adjacent enemies at the same time.
    I figured that at the start of the game, to protect against early rushes, some kind of defense mechanism is necessary. For the Evil Faction, a few supply units would be protection enough since they would be the only supply units to strike multiple targets (and also deal a moderate amount of damage). Since they are slow moving this prevents them from being used as regular troops, but for defence purposes, the main structure could give them a speed bonus for a short time, that way they can move quickly enough through the base to repel invaders. The speed bonus would have a cooldown time before it can be used again, and its effects last for a certain amount of time (enough time to defend the base).

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    RES:
    concept: The Giant blubber grubs were first used to clear paths for the evil armys, the grubs will eat everything in their path using its tendrils to up root trees and rock which they would swallow hole making wide paths in forests and rocky canyons.
    It was later realised that the slow digestion sacks which broke through the grubs back stored these useful resources, which the grub would digest over many months.
    The grubs keepers found they could easliy rupture the sacks using their herding spears spilling the now sticky resoures ready for use.
    Although this creature is an omnivore many a Grub keeper have lost their life by getting caught within its tendril’s.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Oblio:
    concept: ZA FATE CLOWN
    Can you pray before a clown?
    There are only rummors of this evil suplier. It is said to be the one that brings the dawns of every major battle on which they show.
    It's the only creature that is capable to find the enourmous mana trees from which the evils have extracted the horrible poisons.
    They come so rarely with such a load that only their appearance decides the fate of one battle.
    On every major war where those creature managed to show once.. it was the end.
    The evil faction fixed them to look like clowns since the ennemies can't even pray, and the powerful snorring sound they make sounds like a crazy smile.
    You can't even say your prayer.. it's... it's... ridiculously hopeless.
    At the bottom of the huge round mask they ware a green field.. where ussualy a pack of sheeps or boars (depending on the region) are keeping him company... the price for one of those small creatures that were rised on the Fate Clown... is enourmous. Hunters go crazy to hunt there...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    nightfend:
    concept: Tharmidon War Beast - This massive creature is a strong and virtually tireless work beast. It's six strong legs make it ideal as a beast of burden for carrying large amounts of supplies. It is generally considered a tamed beast, but the creatures have still been known to go on murderous rampages on occasion.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Lord Blue:
    concept: This is a very typical Hedral Beast, best known for its violent stampedes in the wild. This specimen, through the use of magical seals, has been enslaved into servitude for the Dark Empire. Being intelligent beasts, they need no rider to drag their cargo to its destination, but then again, no one dares attempt to ride these tempermental beasts.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    flatliner:
    concept: The three legged, marsh dwelling Sconmolin's were once elegant creatures which waded through the waters, feeding on what swam in the emerald pools . Now enslaved by the evil empire these magnificent beasts have been twisted and tormented into a shadow of their former glory. Reared from birth, they are forced to obey their every whim, hauling supplies that they strap to its sides and hung below its body.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------



    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    BlkCelebration:
    concept: These normaly tame creatures are used by the evil faction not only because of their great strenght but because their passive nature makes them easy to control. Eventually the bad treatment they receive makes these gentle giants into dangerous creatures.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I voted for Oregano's because it is the most dynamic: so much life and power! The rendering is beautiful too.

    ps, hey Fozzy, some pics were posted twice, and some not at all (and I don't mean Gruuu's) glitch?

    pps, and can I just put in a plug for C.O.W.? Although it was thoroughly intimidating to see the competition, I loved the variety of concepts everyone came up with. It's very inspiring, and a great way to get the creative juices flowing!

    in the end i voted for oregano aswell,because it's convincing enough,though it looks terribly much like a dinosaur and he blatantly took the names and evil guys from lotr.
    i considered mike's aswell,but those green shadows just ain't doing it for me.
    fozzy's was a close one too,but he slid too much on his stomach for my taste.

    [edit]My wife says I should be nicer in my responses. She says that I shouldn't bite anyone's head off like I did below. She says that I should explain that my language is influenced by Tolkien, but that I spend a great deal of time coming up with original names and that I should ask nicely for you to show me where I allegedly pulled the names from his work.
    [end edit]

    Original comments removed by the wife censoring committee, and Carnifex's head lovingly reattached.

    PS - and I mentioned that the base idea for the creature design was a ceratopsian dinosaur (seeing as how there were several species of them, not just the triceratops).

    Thumbs up

    I voted for AndrewLey. The illustration is rendered very well, but more importantly, it had a very original creature design with the thing carrying it's cargo underneath it. Plus I just really like the camera angle and perspective of the piece. The creature looks big.

    My second pick would be Mike C's. The illustration is amazing (as all his pieces are) and he really looks like the kind of creature an evil faction would use to haul stuff around.

    Michael W.

    Oregano thank you for your comments and voting
    You're right... it needs a lot more work on the rendering. I'm working on it, one step at a time

    Thanks again.

    I voted for Mike - its a solid concept and its well presented, although I think it lacks something to set it apart as a truly unique design.

    I really like Oregano's - you can really feel the power of the animal. As I consider this a design challenge though, I felt it was too close to a dinosaur and the poles look like they would snap off. As an illustration though its great.

    I think I would have voted for Fozzy's if it were more finished as it is very different looking.

    I think BlkCelebration's could also have been very cool with more time spent on it.

    wassermelone - cool design just needed more work

    Well done everyone

    When I first saw Andrew Ley's, I thought I'd have to vote for his for sure. But then I saw Oregano's and I had to change my mind. Love dinosaurs, love Tolkien, what more could you ask for? Of course it helps that this is probably the strongest piece of seen from Oreg. They dynamic composition and sense of motion and weight really won me over, as well as the rendering around the creature's face. nice job my friend

    I voted for AndrewLey's because it I thought it was the strongest pic. Also it looked pretty terrifying.

    Well done all!

    A tough choice as always. As soon as I saw AndrewLey's peice I thought it had my vote. The sheer size and design of the creaure leaves no dought about its purpose or alliance. However, MIKECORRIEROs swung it for me though. I think its the sutble touchs, the background, the armour, it all felt more believeble. You get my vote.

    Close behind was wassermelone, the design and description was one of the most orginal creatures here. Also BlkCelebration, whos rendering was just spot on.

    Oregano Thanks for the crit, Il be sure to work on my stuff , if not for this c.o.w, the one to follow. its really appreciated .

    We'll ride the spiral to the end, we may just go where no one's been

    My vote is for Andrewley. No reason to explain myself really - the creature is very well designed it can`t be mistaken for anything other than an evil supply carrier. Even the little sketchy dudes look badass :]

    Thanks to all the comments I recieved on mine. I agree that the size is not quite clear (should of shown a clan dude for comparison....should'a, could'a, would'a ) haha... the croppig was pretty dumb on my part as well..

    Great stuff this round. I enjoyed the restricted topic guideliness; lets do it again!

    I voted for MIKECORRIERO (for like the 5th time!). Your stuff always inspires me. The creature is believable, looks bad-ass (with head gear n'all), and if I was the client I would of picked this piece right off the bat. Keep 'em coming.

    OK, I loved Ley's,oblio's and wassermelone's, but I had to go with Mike's. Maybe cause it's my first vote, and I'm really partial to his style. And though the others were incredibly creative, I thought his would fit the project best. Kickin work all around, I think I'm gonna get in on this weeks, I already got my crapmuncher started.

    Thanks for the feedback Possessed and Oregano.

    I am just suprised that my pic didn't get a better response. It wasn't quite up there with AndrewLey's Mike's or Oregano's, but I thought it was worth a few. Oh well, more fuel for the fire.

    Bitch session over.

    A difficult vote again...

    I voted for Oregano because I think the creature looks fantastic - big, slow, evil. I really like the background and I think the whole scene is very dynamic. I also think the painting is very well done. The other two pics I was considering include Andrew Ley's beast which is just magnificent. Excellent work! I also think Mike Corriero's creature looks fantastic. Very well painted. In the end, I decided on Oregano's pic - I like the style and overall, his painting was my fave.

    Ideas I liked a lot:

    Azrael, I thought your idea was great! Loved the beast

    Fozzybear, he's almost cute

    I also like Carnifex's concept. It's a little different from everyone else's idea and I think it's fun.

    Great work

    It took one hour and 48 minutes to load with my piece of shit 28k, but it was worth it.

    Kudos to everyone. Well done.

    BrOk3nSpirit...a close second for me.

    ...and a vote for AndrewLey...

    I'm an illustrator first, but I forced myself not to let that get in the way of the requirements. I simply looked for the best solutions to the problem, no matter what it looked like, then went for execution between those.

    Now I'm pissed I still don't have my new comp...

    AndrewLey's CD seemed the most likely to be an evil supply creature. The size of the creature is a large factor in my desicion considerring what it is expected to transport. Most of the other concept creatures seem too small to effictively fulfill the purpose. In addition to how efficiently it works, the depiction of the creature is well done.

    Strange coincidence that every man whose skull has been opened had a brain.

    My vote goes for MIKECORRIERO...it meets all demands of the concept...is greatly rendered, cool presented and has a very conceptartsy touch...

    special hoorays go to

    possessed
    This is the best entry so far from you...i like that it's looking more like a creature this time...you got the "most improved artist" award keep it up!!!

    Danilo
    I love the sketchy style! It looks like a rough sketch for the client to show all features he demanded with the concept....very dynamic and vivid!

    I voted for Teigrob, because his piece looks totally original, done masterfully and makes me wanna know about the story behind it. Besides, I get scared easily and can't vote in this condition . If I could I would add gitsune, Danilo, Azrael. I like their work very much too.

    P.S. I'm just kind of worry if I pushed the right button, the bars are too close for me and it happened very fast.
