    Finally got a tablet and been messing around with it a little, wip for now
    - (image 1 used to be here ) -

    EDIT: Thanks red.

    Just a small update, I decided to change the composition.
    - (image 2 used to be here, yadda yadda ; P )

    EDIT2: Ack, I changed it again. Its still a wip and needs plenty refinement, but this is more or less what I'm sticking with.

    - (and yet another image removed ) +

    EDIT3: Ok, its about as finished as its going to get. Maybe some more twitching around, but this is basically it. *Sigh*.

    C.O.W. - #027: Messenger Of Death
    The Reaper's Familiar
    While Death is busy with his daily routine of crossing souls over into the afterlife, there are those who are not yet ready to be taken. The Reaper has a pet, a ghastly creature who acts as his Messenger. This Messenger meets those who for a moment face mortal peril but do not know it. He informs them that they are near of dying, but that it is not their turn yet to be taken, and so they must wait. He acomplishes this with his grotesque appearence, which usually is enough to frighten away from the dangerous situation the soul in question has wandered into. Though he looks menacing, he is harmless.

    Nice updated entry Broken!
    [edit] now even moreso on acid, but no longer a chia pet.
    I dig it. Keep playing! Check out Scumgrinder's tut in his SB for building up tone - skull sampler....really helpful. I was discussin' things back and forth with him for a while to get his technique details...perhaps you'll like it too.

    Cheers!

    I couldn't resist putting this in here -

    Lorraine: Yes?
    at door: Mrs. Jarlsburg? (mumbled)
    Lorraine: Who?
    at door: Mrs. Boroughyu? (mumbled)
    Lorraine: Who is it?
    at door: Flowers.
    Lorraine: Flowers for whom?
    at door: Plumber, maam.
    Lorraine: I don't need a plumber.
    You're that clever shark, aren't you?
    at door: Candygram.
    Lorraine: Candygram my foot.
    You get out of here before I call the police.
    You're the shark and you know it.
    at door: Uh, uh, I'm only a dolphin, maam.
    Lorraine: A dolphin, Well, ok.
    --Lorraine opens the door and is eaten by the Landshark

    OK Guys here is revision.Cheers
    After a complete endoplazmatic breakdown of the parasite retrieved the opinion of This direktorate that the parasite is not of terrestrial origin. The cellular properties are found only in the blood of extensive Martian beer drinkers.

    Shalom!
    If everything goes as planned, we will unleash Kochot tomorrow.
    During the tests we noticed the mutation of fauna caused by Kochot's toxic cloud:
    one, the Basser flies, which are generated by kochot's dermis' mitochondria and the sail moths which mutated into filter feeders to catch the large numbers of Basser flies. They grow as big as a horse and since they fly outside of Kochot's toxic cloud, they can be seen minutes before Kochot reaches the area.
    These messengers of death won't behave aggressively.
    Let them be your warning to ready your gas masks and your suits.

    Yasher koach
    great work, all.

    END OF MESSAGE

    C.O.W. - #027: Messenger Of Death
    Messenger of Death
    The messenger of death is an enormous creature that appears from the clouds once every few hundred years. No one knows where they live or where they come from but when they arrive, they bring with them the death of thousands. The messenger of death releases thousands of hatchlings to feed upon the souls of the living. These hatchlings enter the body and begin to feed until thier translucent skin becomes a hard carapace, then they retreat back to the sky from which they came.


    just for kicks, here is an animated gif tutorial. I had made it for a few people who asked in the finally finished section where I have posted this image and tutorial along with the 3 previous cows I had done.
