    AndrewLey:
    concept: These lightning fast predators feed mostly on small mammals. Thier wings are actually covered in thick fur which, while a perfect insulator for its arctic habitat, render the creature flightless. It uses the wings as shelter from the freezing winds and also to intimidate competitors. It is thought they may have been able to fly in the past, but the wing feathers most likely adapted to a climate change.

    From the lost files of the 60's Gjoa iceberg expedition
    Trent Leyland's diary excerpt:
    "...they aren't ears. The horn like extensions work in a similar way as the ampullae of Lorenzini in sharks, that explains why the creature could find our huskies even during the storms.
    Foreman took a few pictures of the creature while there was still some sun, can't wait to see how they turn out."

    concept: Arctic Hunter-saurian
    This reptile-related creatures are able to hunt both onshore and in the water. It's long arms with big webbed claws make a very good swimmer out of this creature. Black extremities and especially the black horn do also serve as warmth-sensors that provide this creature with all the warmth it needs to be able to survive in it's arctic environment.
    It's big muscular legs and feet make it reach very high velocities while hunting onshore moreover the big also webbed feet protect it from sinking into the snow.

    concept: Little is known about this arctic carnivore. It appears to be of the Ursus Maritimus (polar bear) family but stands nearly a metre taller. When provoked it can become very vicious and after the initial taste of blood it appears to become frenzied. It has been seen to feed on polar bears and arctic foxes.

    concept: Report on unusual military activity near the Larsen Ice Shelf, Antarctica
    After several years of isolating the genes of the animals on earth, scientists began experimenting with splicing genes from various species in order to create animals that carried traits enabling them to exist in enviroments previously uninhabitable. The initial idea being maybe they could preserve some endangered species by altering them slightly and having them
    live in these unhospitable enviroments.
    However the armies of the world emplyed scrupleless scientists and had them genetically design beasts that could be used for war. This has been kept under wraps as best as they can, but some specimens have fled their creators and now roam free. This lion-hybrid is believed to have some genes from the arctic fox, explaining the bushy tail, as well as having surgically implanted metal tentacles designed for subduing its victims faster due to the poison ejected through the needles at the ends.
    This specimen (shown here in summer) has also adopted the polar bears habit of fattening up before winter in order to withstand the extreme cold.
    The latin name for the creature has been suggested to be Panthera Alopex, deriving from the latin names for both the lion and the arctic fox.

    concept: On the frozen ice beds and glaciers of “creb 6” explores will take note of mammal 721.
    Mammal 721 has “skates” on its feet. This allows it to transverse ice with great ease. The primary means of attack is to ether skate full force in to it victim knocking it down and hence making easy pray, or by using the claws attached at the end of it’s skates to spring off the ice with and attack its pray in a raptor~ish style. Most time they hunt in packs of 5 and have been know to attack people on sight. Explores beware!

    Eriboss:
    concept: Morphosis Aquammal Giganticus - "The Drunken Giant"
    This astonishing beast was first spotted by marine biologists 3 years ago deep in the baron ice plains of Antarctica.
    Coined by scientists as the worlds first “Aquammal” and measuring up to 50feet in length in “marine form” these giants bodies are made up of a thin transparent membrane, which strangely only appears to house a brain, stomach and what looks like huge distances of veins.
    In the dark winter months when sea pickings are slim, this giant beast goes through an astounding state of metamorphosis…
    By sucking water inside its membrane skin and then dragging itself up onto land, the beast freezes itself into a collection of vein filled ice “limbs” and then proceeds to climb up off the icy floor and continue its hunting on land… swapping its summer diet of small deep water whale to that of polar bear! Scientists have nicknamed it “The Drunken Giant” due to the fact that when on land it seems to stumble around unsteadily on its newly formed limbs... much like that of a drunk.
    Amazingly, if their ice "body" gets damaged, it can simply refreeze itself over time, making them almost indestructible… although if they do ever find themselves in any form of trouble, they simply dive back underwater to gently melt away their bodies and swim away unharmed.
    Don't be fooled by its comical stumbling appearance... as this creature is cold calculating killer, hunting both above and below sea level it is more intelligent than we could ever have imagined… and truly like nothing we have seen before.

    concept: Snow Demon
    It was not long after exploratory droids landed on the ice planet of Sefis-C, that the dominant carnivore showed itself. They measure rougly 180cm in length and weigh 220kg. Their sharp claws serve both as weapons against prey and also as a means to grasp the icy terrain. They prefer the warmer equatorial regions of the planet, where daytime temperatures average -20 Celsius, and food is more plentiful. They use short barks and howls to communicate with each other, and the droids noted before they were destroyed that the Demons attacked in small coordinated packs.

    concept: Arctic Predator - Running Nose
    The Nose or 'snotslinger' as it is sometimes called is a small predator found on the distant iceplanet 'Tzhoy'. It actively searches for swarms of clustergrubs on Tzhoys snowy plains. The Nose has found a way to deal with it's highspeed prey. when it has run up to them close enough it will blast a spray of sticky muccus from it's nasal cavity. The muccus will trap a few of the slower grubs in it's sticky content rendering them immobile. The Nose like's it prey ice cold and breaths a hyperfrost cloud over it's prey. The prey is instantly frozen and crushed in the grinding maw of the Nose.

    concept: Snowdigger
    Some experts unofficially report, that there is something strange lurking under the Arctic sheet ice. The first-hand information has never been received, because all of the eye-witnesses have died immediately. Fragments of non-public reports suggest that the creature is really big and it is so powerful, that even 2-meter ice floe can't resist when it atacks. This cold-blooded creature hunts for unaware of danger mammals, and do it especialy for sport. Uses a frozen saliva to kill or just to harm chosen victim. The funiest one is that the experts distributes Snowdigger into flightless bird class.

    concept: This rare Arctic carnivore dubbed 'The Giant Walrus' seems to be a cross between a standard Walrus and a Polar Bear. Much is unkown about the animal as it has only been glimpsed by a handful of explorers and scientists. Data that has been collected shows that it mainly preys on penguins, it can breath on land and underwater through the use of gill like holes running in parallel behind its eyes and it is said that its cry is similar to that of a distant foghorn.

    concept: Polar Knifelimb Stabber
    These huge arctic creatures are of the few carnivores who attack prey larger than themselves, usually King Mamoths and Megabisons. They have eight limbs, four of them are quadruped legs, and the other ones are specialized horned limbs with some degree of mobility. The frontal horned limbs possess little mobility, these are for ramming them into their prey when charging at full speed. The back horned limbs are more mobile, and once at close distance, they are used for repeated stabbing, from above. The thumbs on the front feet are large and razor like, these are also used for stabbing, but from below, aiming at the stomach and throat. The have horns at the sides of their heads, as well as on top and under the chin. These function as a means of defense as well as offense when fighting, but they are also used for eating by ripping into bone and tearing flesh. Heavy fur protects the creature from the weather, isolating the cold and keeping them warm underneath.

    concept: Giant Arctic Sloth
    The arctic sloth is one of the rarer inhabitants of the frozen arctic tundra. This large creature (standing 6ft at the shoulder) is a predator, feeding primarily on seals and/or small whales. The sloth is a slow moving but effective hunter - often sitting motionless for hours on end next to seal breathing holes in the ice. The enlarged claw on the first digit is used to 'hook' unsuspecting prey coming up for air. Arctic sloths are solitary creatures and encounters between two individuals will often result in a bloody battle. Sadly, this magnificent creature has been nearly hunted to extinction because of increasing demand for area rugs and hip, furry boots.

The teeth of the Waytoonastyus are as large as a man's finger, and it uses them to eat whatever it can get its hands on, even other Waytoonastyuses. Cannibalism is far from unheard of, as other potential prey will flee in terror when the Waytoonastyus sounds it's keening hunting cry of "I'ma'eatyoo'up."

    Carnifex:
    concept: The Plooska
    A distant relative to crocodiles, the size of a hippo, living in the cold of the arctic. It hunts whatever moves upon the ice, whilst swimming under it himself. Can stay underwater for approx. 2 hours and requires massive amounts of flesh to keep its body temperature high. It's big body helps aswell by storing warmth from the sun, much like the dinosaurs in ancient times. Kills its victims either by ripping their throat out,or, much more likely, dragging them underwater and drowning them.

    concept: Abominable Wurm
    Deep in the Himalayan Mountains lurk giant carnivorous wurms which are approximately 100 meters long. The wurm is said to have existed through the ice age and is at its evolutionary prime. The wurm is said to be a cave dweller and can only last in direct sunlight for a few hours. When out of its cave the wurm prefers to travel in the water. With great power and speed the Abominable Wurm can devour a whale in a matter of seconds. An Abominable Wurm’s life expectancy is said to be roughly a hundred years.

    RES:
    concept: Skinless slaughter beast
    The distant planet of Duwos has only two continents, one tropical the other arctic joined by shifting land flows. Only one animal has ever been known to have travelled between them. The skinless slaughter beast evolved in the tropical heat dominating the tropics, eventually wiping out all of its pray. At some point a pack of beasts in search of food travelled to the artic, finding themselves poorly suited to the cold the beasts would have become extinct if it hadn’t have been for some amazing ingenuity. The naturally fierce predator found it easy to kill and strip the many artic animals, ripping off chunks of fur the beast would roll in the blood soaked skins matting it to its body. The skinless slaughter beast pictured here is very young and in the process of crafting the fur coat that will enable it to dominate this new continent.

    OLSEN:
    concept: The Urilian winter wolf
    Also known as Crimson Urilae Canidae.
    The top predator of the Urilian ice wastes. Their style of hunting is very close to that of terrestrial wolfs, except that the hunt is performed completely by females. The males, who spend most of their time fighting within for mating privileges, only join the hunt during periods of starvation. In the picture above, the bright red head of the female indicates that it's mating season.
    Being the size of terrestrial polar bears, the hunting pack can easily take on very large prey, crucial for survival amongst the megafauna of Urilia.
    During the hunt the females communicate with very loud clapping sounds produced in a unique cavity in their throats. The sounds can easily be mistaken for gunshots, something that has scared the peaceful settlers of Urilia many times.

    mihai:
    concept: Since the last ice age has struck animals have become extinct with billions.This carnivore has evolved from a vegetarian animal into the most ferocuious flesh eater that has roamed in the southern hemisphere...
    The "australoursus" wich is related by evolution with the creature cold by past inhabitants "fureback", is here, on top of the food chain.
    This beast has prolounged claws to enable it catch fish with extreme ease but their main use is for large prais such as the new ice mammels that now inhabit these lands.
    It’s teeth are adapted to sort fish flesh from bones and olso slash through meat-they are very thin but very strong.The hair contains a special enzime secreted by the skin that hardens the animal's hair clusters, and along whith the skin muscles giving it the ability to actually control the angle of it’s own hair in order to keep itself cool or warm depending on the climate conditions in this cold enviroment-when the hair stays at an angle the wind can pass and cool it’s skin. In harsh conditions the face gets coverd by the long hairs on it’s head. The nose of the creature is coverd by a membrane wich stops water from getting in and the mouth is “obstructioned” by a hard bone wich the animal uses to brake victim bones and cartilages with. It also uses it in combat especially in the maiting season when this becomes
    a deadly weapon.
    Like all large predators that have walked this planet this one to will eventually become extinct, but untill then...

    concept: Carnivorous Aqauticus from the ice world Freon
    The size of a wooly mammoth, this underwater creature is an aquatic mammal that spends most of its time in the artic sub-zero tempuratures of Freon, located near the Pleides star cluster. This creature is the ultimate survivor. It can literally smell its prey from 100 miles below the ocean surface or 500 miles above it. It uses its redish eyes to see in infrared, normal light, and ultraviolet, and has super sharp vision up to 15 miles away. It can out-swim everything in the water except one creature - a 200 foot-long super-shark species native to that planet. Its favorite meal is an otter-like mammal that spends its time on glacier edges. If hungry, this carnivore will even go after its competitor - the super shark, though it is a rare event. Only I have witnessed this fearless creature go after an alien shark and captured it on film!!!

    concept: Arctic Underground beast
    This animal lives in "Hell", the frozen moon of the Planet Grande. This moon, was named Hell because noone that goes there ever comes back, only recently the cause was identified: the Arctic Underground Beast. This enormous beast has large periods of hibernation from which it wakes up when there is "food" nearby, which consists normally of the humanoid species that lives in Planet Grande and go to Hell to drill for a rare energic cristal that is found only in this moon.
    This species is highly inteligent and has been able to avoid every attenpt of elimination from its "food" and as always been capable of remaining, very successfully, at the top of the food chain.

    concept: Ornyteris Arcticus
    The first fossil of Ornyteris Arcticus, or "The Arctic Terror", was discovered in 1923 by a crew of explorers a few miles from the North Pole. Amazed with the discovery of a 8-meter long Theropod predator in such a barren landscape, scientists of the Norse Paleontology Museum came back 2 years later for a more detailed research. Digging the ancient ice, they unearthed layers and more layers of a diverse environment where the Ornyteris was king. This predator was so efficient in hunting their prey that eventually they extinguished entire populations, breaking the food chain. The last remnants of this magnificent animal had to become cannibals to survive, what was confirmed by a found skeleton of a large male Ornyteris eating a smaller female after attacking her nest.

    concept: A Snowcap will eat anything that moves, regardless of size. A large part of why most make their homes a long way apart from each other, and why they have never been particularly numerous. They drag themselves through the snow and ice, having a love for the cold, and with their white haired tops give the impression that the ground is moving. SnowCaps are near totally unknown among humans, with so few people venturing into the icy wilds of the arctic, though whole teams of reaserchers and explorers have been known to vanish near certain areas speculated by paranormal experts to be possible SnowCap lairs.

    concept: The Snowball of Pain
    ....while we were filming a documentary on the polar bear, we discovered this new species on accident. Initially we thought it was a baby seal as its mouth was closed and honestly we all thought it was adorable. It was storming, so we were within a few feet of it when all of the sudden "it" become "them". Little eyes blinked at us in curiosity, as we moved closer from our own curiosity as well. That was, until they gnashed their blood-red teeth and lept toward our party in the blink of an eye. Before we knew what was happening, we were covered in these little creatures. If I had to describe it best it would be almost as if they were pirahnas on land. They only had two feet, near as I could tell...and they only used them to bounce around. If one would overshoot one of us, it would merely bounce backward and try again. Unfortunately most of them were quite precise in their targets. I only survived because, admittedly, I fled before the bulk of them were on us. I only had to shake off two or 3 as I ran for the helicopter.
    These "Snowballs of pain" destroyed our entire team. They may be cute at first. But you'd best turn back immediately if you see those beady black eyes staring at you. Chances are, though, if you see them...you are already dead.

    The Valoscarvine are found in the barren regions of Antarctica. They are a large, carnivorous, bear-like creature that feed mostly on Penguins. They jump on their prey and violently rip their limbs and beaks off and then devour them still warm. Since the Valoscarvine have very small teeth, they usually shred most of their food first with their extremely long and sharp claws and the 3 pointed tusks on their face. Once their food is the right consistency, they slurp it up to their mouth which is hiding deep underneath a large flap of skin on the bottom of their face.

Apparently the shark has evolved into a creature that excels both in and out of the icy waters. It mainly feasts on seals, but it has also been seen attacking polar bears and other large beasts. It's unknown how many of these strange creatures exist, but it is certain that the adaptibility of the Great White Shark is beyond reason.

    Fozzybar:
    concept: The South Pole Polar Bear
    Riddle: Why don't polar bears eat penguins?
    Answer: Because polar bears live at the North Pole, while penguins live at the South Pole!
    This old trick question must be revised now.
    Polar Scientists sensationally discovered a polar bear species at the South Pole. This creature has about 10-20 times the size of its cousin at the northern hemisphere...with its back (which locks like an ice floe or ice berg) lying above the water surface, the South Pole Polar Bear floats on the sea...
    Penguins and seals are settling in with time to have a place to rest...
    When enough prey is settled down the South Pole Polar Bear bends his body towards his head...this way everything on its back slides into the water, just to appear in front of his big mouth ...sometimes (as seen on the image) it smacks with his huge paw on its back to "assist" the sliding effect - Bon Appetit!

    i voted for AndrewLey because i really liked the composition. Maybe it should have a paler coat since it is an arctic creature but otherwise i think it is a really good piece. very nice pose aswell, very dynamic, you can really feel how that creature is fast and dangerous.

    about the other entrants i must say you all did a really good job..

    Dusty gets my vote - I always like very simple but strong design statements plus the penguin death scene is very funny.

    Loads of great entries this time - well done everyone

    Usually I have trouble deciding between 2 or 3 entries. This round it was more like 15. I'll try to comment a little on the entries latter but ultimately I voted for Dusty, I like everything about it. Cool simple design, good presentation, good color choice and I like how its painted, the death scene to the left is great and shows action, the concept at work, and various side and back views of the creatures. And if all this weren't enough, its a very original entry, actually its the only little critter this round. On top of it all it has humour, the name alone "the snowball of pain" is funny as hell, so is the death scene (poor penguin). Good job!

    more comments later.

    I ended up voting for JakkaS - I felt the description was a little weak and needed some revision here and there, but on the whole the image made up for what the description lacked.

    That said, it was tough. There are a lot of strong entries for this round - I was really glad to see so many people turn out for it

    I voted for Scumgrinder because of the finished look it had. But Dusty was very close, because of the cool concept.

    Very nice pieces this round, well done everyone!

    I also voted for Scumgrinder due to the kick butt combination of anatomy as well as the rendering quality. Major shout outs to Jakkas, BlkC, Nightfend, Bluefooted, Undertow, Bumskee, Dusty, Res and xgabo. If hell froze over, I'm sure I'd see variations of your creatures all over the place!
    All the best,
    Dave
