    It's round 30!!! and so the topic is related to this small jubilee...

    I talked with [DAN] about COW in Prag at the workshop and he made an interesting statement...he said "it would be interesting to see a creature design about a creature with only 3 legs...you know there are no creatures with 3 legs..."...i tried to think of a creature with 3 legs, because it was so trivial, but no creature came to my mind and i was really surprised, since i never realized that actually there are no creatures with 3 legs...

    Well, now that's the time where [DAN]s idea is going to be our topic!!!

    No, it's triped, as in biped (two legged).

    We're going to see a lot of War of the World's designs I bet. Good topic though.

    For a second I thought it said "tripped", as in high. I thought we were supposed to make a really tripped design, as in really wacky.

    lol, that was my first impression to, Broken. Maybe an idea for a future toppic . It will be intresting what people will come up. What with tripeds from W.O.W and the Striders of Half-Life 2 being the archetypal three legged creature, i'm intruiged to see how you guys will dodge tha cliche's.

    for a creature I'd say triped .. like biped or quadruped... tripod sounds more for an object/vehicle. I'll try to enter that one, nice topic.

    Triped is correct. -ped means "foot".

    Anyway, interesting topic, I'm looking forward to seeing the variations on this one, because for some reason I'm coming up blank, lol.

    I'm assuming it should be something that naturally has three legs. :o It'd be kind of cheap to just draw an animal missing a leg, hehe.

    a triped in theory can have whatever number of extremities but it only uses 3 to walk. triped comes from tri=3 and ped=feet

    Later Mike! Nice entry btw.
    Give us some concept text relating to the piece, okay? That'd be special.
    Congrats on all the work, bro. Your efforts continue to pay off.

    Cheers!

    hello poeple!
    first time posting here (COW activity),
    hope you all like it.
    here`s my entry:
    C.O.W. - #030: Triped

    Triped Crustacean:
    the long legged (3 in count) crab-like creature resides in the depths of large
    sweet-water ponds and revers.
    his diet includes small fish, small frogs and basically anything smaller than itself.
    its 3rd leg (located and centerd under his "chin") is used for balance, steering(along with the tail), and catching + killing a prey.
    the T.C. is an endangered species, since the habit
    of killing its females while mating.
    by accident.

    All animals have 4 limbs though... well dragons with 4 legs technically cannot have wings... but anyway it would be quite funny to see a creature with 3 legs and 1 arm

    mmm... tastes like chicken.

    NICE Chuck, mate!
    I've been waiting for you to dive in here for a looooong time. Welcome aboard!

    "OOOOOOOOooooooo who lives on the sand floor and spears tiny fish?"
    "Tri-ped Cru-sta-cean!"
    "Who's shiny and red and triped you see?"
    "Tri-ped Cru-sta-cean!"

    Okay.
    I'll stop there.
    Must. Get. Coffee.
    Cheers!
    D

    ps. Hey Chuck - the text in the upper right isn't doing your piece any justice....

    Cique, you're thinking of vertebrates
    There are animals that don't even have limbs, like sponges, worms. Starfish have five limbs, some have more.

    And, not all vertebrates have 4 limbs... snakes have no limbs (they have tiny vestigial bones though) and some marine animals, fishes, have many fins.
