    Mantroon:
    concept: Sole survivor of a planet ravaged by a cataclysm of his own making, this entity, flled with despair and rage headed out into the "massive black" (cheesy I Know) of space. For millenia it has roam the galaxy consuming anything in its path, growing immensely, to the point it can consume stars. Its loneliness robbed his sanity long ago as the entity consumes the galaxy.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    MIKECORRIERO:
    concept: A Massive Black is a golem of sorts, a myth among many cultures often told in modern times around camp fires to frighten those who fear the darkness. They were the bringers of pain and torture, conjured up by satanic sorcerers of the past to bring destruction to their enemies during times of war. The Massive Black was created from sinful souls, thorns, evil that lurked in the shadows, these elements were molded to create a nightmarish creature whoís sole purpose and pleasure was in the tormenting of those who stand in its path. They stand a massive 12 feet tall and seem to float on air above their thorny spike filled base. There is no use in battling one with mortal weapons since they are immortal and regenerate if any of their vine-like limbs are severed. In wars there were legends of these creatures taking out masses of 30 or 50 men at a time. They were the most fearsome of all things that were evil and dark.

    Carnifex:
    concept: Massive Black
    is the creature who haunts us most these days. It eats whatever moves and it's tail snatches everything within range. Its poops smell a sweet odor like perfume which make it hard to resist coming closer...

    davi:
    concept: An alien from a world of darkness, the Massive Black scutters through the planes with no sense of sight. On it's back it carries it's young, which it covers with a canvas of thin skin for protection.

    Uziel:
    concept: This giant can be compared with some of the large dinosaurs. It's a herbivore that can run,hop around pretty fast. They are not agressive but incidents occur due to its unawareness of the smaller animals.

    gibsini:
    concept: This creature or "MASSIVE BLACK" to the agency is the future of law enforcement, it is part organic part machine. Massive Black works using telepathic energy to hone in on bad thoughts an feelings, so when it detects a crime about to occur it simply assumes control of the would be criminal and prevents the crime from occurring, perfect or so it would seem. Unfortunately as with all earthly creations it has a flaw it cannot locate or control minds of the mentally insane, so its for this reason they hunted down and kept locked away in prison like assylums, word has it some have been there since birth. Agency is currently working on a MASSIVE BLACK 2 to eliminate this flaw so watch this space.

    redehlert:
    concept: "Hunger. Must feed."
    That's all I heard. Over and over again. The undercurrent of this reverberating din was the droning hum of what I thought was 'gotta catch em all' - a theme song I recall from when I was a kid watching Saturday morning cartoons. So very odd! And yet, it made sense. This creature is kind of cute. But I digress...I thought it would never end! Even now, the tune and statement pings in my ears.
    We thought we knew that black holes were easily predicted by general relativity. Boy, were we wrong! The 4evr-MB Dimensional Warping Device took me not to the other end of the galaxy, but rather to the other side of reality! It took me to the place where the "massive black" is devoured by entities of such magnitude they make suns look like specs of sand. If there is a god, I think I just saw it's lap dog. My retinas are seered forever more. It's all I see and all I hear. I think I'm gonna go watch some cartoons now.

    xgabo:
    concept: It is whispered of the creature in the end of everything, the one preying on entropy itself; the most beautiful and terrible form of life, not a god, but predator of god and man without distinction... they are born in the Big Bang, and fight for survival among its sisters, not a lot more than vicious clouds of gas by then, killing each other in an infant universe... The survivor of this struggle is all-powerful, all-hungry and its humongous body incubates for eons, growing until it becomes a black hole, then a worm hole... bringing the entire cosmos into itself, and digesting it until it everything in existence get condensed into a grain of sand, so unstable it can only exist for a fraction of a second, then it explodes... killing the creature and giving birth to a new universe.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Azrael:
    concept: This enormous snarling black beast you see before you is the horrific outcome of manís vicious self conceit and destructive ego. Yes, once human, an unparalleled artist among men this creature once was. Praise of his work spread far and it wasnít long into this artistic geniusís career that he devoloped an overly high value of himself. So large his ego grew as the praise poured upon him of his exquisite creations that it began to form a being of itself and overtake the embodiment of his being. What you see before you is the mutation of his very ego. Multiple arms and eyes allow this beast to produce more art than even a fully staffed studio of twenty humans is capable of. This creature can mostly be found in the heavy metropolis area of the city aided by a devote staff of lower-lifes dedicated to maintaining the delicate balance of his temperament. He looks peaceful and content now as he works away at his creations, but if he runs out of his precious coffee or needed supplies his rage can be so devastating that it has been known to wipe out entire city blocks with his sheer might.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    possessed:
    concept: Deep within our own minds lies buried an unspeakable horror.
    It feeds by absorbing our darkest thoughts and wishes and it shuns moments of love and happiness. The countless immoral deeds of itís disturbed host all act to nourish the abomination and itís filth spreads like an obsidian growth through the brains as a new intellect takes over.
    The sycophant is now free to play itís host like a lifeless puppet and gorges itself into unconceivable acts of vileness and dissipation on a hell-bent path to wreck the physical husk of itís host. The shattered carrier is now possessed.

    Mitze:
    concept: Massive black the largest predator of the planet Ki-Kwi. To dangerous to let live it was nearly wiped to extinction but being a enlighten people they came up with a ingenious solution. A trade deal with earth will allow them to transport Massive black here, as our environment is well suited to them. But don't worry ,as size is relative, it might be a giant on planet Ki-Kwi but here it is about the size of your thumbnail.

    rasdasa:
    concept: Some creatures live in darkness, while others constantly fight to escape it, but there are others still who bring darkness with them. It is their sunlight, and as they eclipse our world, to them there's revealed. Whenever you are in darkness they can observe you while you see nothing, but wherever light falls they are blind. Due to contrary beliefe, you dosee them , they are the dark blotches on midnight deserted alleys and in lightless washrooms. They breath upon your neck while you sleep and while you piss.
    They are the last visitors at our final breath.

    bumskee:
    concept: Also known as the feeder of despair, this round balloon like mystical creature is only seen floating the night skies of burning cities. It follows trails of destruction of the conquered cities, it is believed to feed on burning corpses and their souls. This creature is feared and avoided and seen as an omen of the despair to follow after the destruction.

    young_paddy1:
    concept: The Massive Black is a weaponised variety of the Great Red Kundu, 50 times bigger and with more than a hundred gallons of the same neuro toxin/bio acid saliva as the Red this creature is highly dangerous and extremely loyal to anyone or anything that raises it. The pool of green smoking liquid was the projects chief scientist Dr Myo and a Lesser Blue Kundu, he started shouting at Dr Fransen who was taking the picture, telling her to hurry up, unfortunately for him (and his little blue friend) she was this Massive Black's 'Mother'.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    JakkaS:
    concept: Discord weaver
    Those spider-like creatures inhabit the furthest planes of HELL. Their appearance owe to Sa'Lalash rituals, either known as "Thousand Innocents' Ritual", when the Salasha's priests slaughter thousend of children. There are not many so despicable creatures, that cross the underworld portal and often the summoner becomes a victim. BUT, lust for having so powerful ally, makes all costs worth. The monster's venom does not kill at all, only increases a victim's aggressive instinct and causes a bloody rage. Beloved brothers fights with each others and mothers sacrifices their own children to another ritual. There was a time in history of Corason Kingdoms when honest and wise kings followed the path of war and many innocent people died by reason of curse.

    br0ken_spirit:
    concept: Starhide Nightjaws
    The countryside of the lands of Arathza are a beautiful and tranquile place to spend vacations. Forests, rivers and lakes, mountains... nature. A popular activity is star gazing on warm summer nights.
    Though there is only one danger in this peaceful paradise. Sometimes its not the stars the visitors are gazing, but the shinning, scaly hide of an enourmous, triple-jawed monster! Indeed, the Starhide Nightjaws, as the local bestiarists have named it, creeps around with its worm like body through the night, feeding on dozens of the largest animals it can find. Ocasionally, the visitors who come to rest make for a good snack.

    concept: His name is Gamoshet. He is near 3 meters tall yet light enough for a human to pick him up. He is gracefull and loves to climb trees in his forest. It is spring and today he was attracted to the white blooms on this tree.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    draw:
    concept: The year is 2020, bird flew has killed all birds except the crow. There have been massive mutations in the crow population. The majority lose their beaks. Only the "freak" crow chicks with calcified "toothlike" structures survive. These chicks latch onto their prey and incise a gaping hole through which they suck the life out of their prey, leaving only a shell of a body remaining. The chicks do not grow old as such, just big, very big. This eventually leads to them being rendered immobile, preventing them preying for victims, and in the end death ensues. Needless to say travelling in flocks "The massive black" present an ominous cloud when on the (hunt would be to pleasant a word).

    Mykro:
    concept: Black Malakas: Standing over 40 ft height, these are by far the largest of any Malakas on Lamau'las, and are thus revered as gods. Incredibly reclusive, they live most of their lives underground, coming out at night to bask in the moonlight.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    sephone:
    concept: In the deep jungles of Peru the ancient Inca's talked about a large creature known as the "massive Black". A large beast that stood 6 ft tall from it's shoulders, this creature usually walked on all 4's but was able to walk on it's hind legs similar to a gorilla. It also had a bird like beak and tusks that was thought to not only be able to break through trees, but also crush a man in half. called the "massive black for several reasons, one is the coarse deep black hair that ran from the back of it's head to it's tail. Another could be the "massive" black claws that it had on his front paws. There is a not much written about this creature, but we do know it was thought to appear in the midnight hour after a ritualistic sacrfice to the gods.

    Yodaah:
    concept: The Massive Black was discovered a few years ago in a strange laboratory, found in the desert of Nefud. At this time it had killed a whole group of scientist. I was the only one to survive, to tell you this story (.... you can call me Ismael... ).
    This thing is not from this planet. Some say that the Massive Black is a clone, born from the mad experiments of an ill-minded scientist, who founded this laboratory, but disappeared....
    ... and some say that this thing just comes straight from hell.

    nice entries everyone, damn hard.. I voted for draw, the face and the compo just worked wonders for me, absolutely loved it. nicely done mate, the distorted face is freaky yet clumsy in a way.

    rasdasa, nice concept, though too human like but damn it's nice dude.

    Mike, love it, so wacky!

    JakkaS, that's solid work dude!

    br0ken_spirit, nice though I felt it was still a little too dark..

    Wishes, thanks dude!

    Had so precious little time for this, but now i have a full afternoon to spend at the next topic yay!
    A few crits:
    Mike, your update looks 100x better then the original entry.
    Davi: Cool critter but wouldn't it be a little handicapped with 'no sense of sight' in a dark world. many critters living in dark areas either have long feeler limbs or highly evolved sound or smell systems. fun creature, under-developed concept.
    Xgabo: great illustration with spaced out colors, one of my favorites here.
    JakkaS, these keep getting better and better. Great use of outlines around the darker areas. For some reason the splitting ( dunno what to call it ) of the segments just before the abdomen annoys me..
    JoshuaTheJames: great to see a really different concept. Nice use of colors.
    Yodaah: aaaaaah it rocks, looks like a runaway monster from a videogame. another one of my favorites.

    I voted for JakkaS, I love the lighting, the creature design, and the colors.

    Other entries I that I really liked were:

    bumskee: scary as hell!
    young_paddy1: the face on that thing is just so weird its awesome, also the story is funny and I like how the image is presented! Its lacking something though... maybe more saturated colors and more bright lights? Good job though.
    Yodaah: whoah.. that looks crazy! Awesome rendering, I like the head and the texture especially. The fading effect gives it a strange and interesting feel. Good job.

    Everybody, good round as usual. Some entries feel just a bit rushed, but overall nice.

    I would probably have voted for Goran if he'd included a proper written concept. Draw's image really appeals to me too, but it's really just a bird with an ugly head so again, I didn't feel like it earned my vote in the context of a creature design activity.

    In the end, it was between JakkaS and bumskee. I like the originality in bumskee's pic, but I felt JakkaS turned in the more complete and better presented concept.

    My vote to JakkaS.

    I voted for JoshuatheJames because itís nice to see a COW now and then that isnít a monstrous beast with demon eyes and fangs and claws waiting to rip you into a dozen pieces.
    I'm not so good with the advice...Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?
