    hehe, time is relative, there is enough time left to do hundrets of thumbnails. Well it is later over here in Germany( right now it'S 10.30 PM) than in NYC, so I needn't be afraid that I show my results too late by mistake.
    Okay cool, I will go right back drawing to show some acceptable thumbnails. I just wanna be happy with the stuff I do

    Evil_Sloth@- I'd like to see you go with number 7
    I think it would make more sense if the legs bent back and then forward similar to the back legs of an antelope. He would have the appearance of something that can run quicker, and I think it would look more natural. I really liked the head on number 3 so maybe try to keep that same characteristic and light-hearted face in the 3 variations for step 2. Some of these were heading away from the direction of exaggerated, exotic and fun, so try to think more about that and the idea of colorful when you move on to step 2.
    Numbers 3, 7, 10 appealed to me the most, and I kinda liked the distinct difference of number 4 with how you gave him a hovercraft-like feeling.
    Number 7 has approval- move to step 2

    Gloominati@- The one that resembled the description the closest was number 3 so I'm going to have you move ahead with that one. I think I'd like to see a couple variations on the body though, maybe something similar to number 1's body.
    A couple of these were geared too much toward other animals and didn't have enough features to show it was related to an antelope.
    Number 1: Lizard/frog
    Number 2: Hippo
    Number 4: Turtle
    Number 7: Frog
    Those were some of the ones that resembled other animals more than the one described "antelope". Try breaking the description a client gives you down into sections. You can take specific words and place them on a sheet along with the name of the creature from the description to refer to while your drawing. This way you can keep better track of what the client wants, when they send you a large brief that might seem confusing.
    For example:
    Waterlope:
    Exaggerated
    Antelope
    mammal
    amphibian
    beautiful
    exotic


    So take the advice I gave you, move forward with number 3 and have some fun with the 3 variations step. move to step 2

    USA, NYC time - go to the first page of this thread and check the link provided in the first post. The Link says "time zone definitions". It will give you the direct NYC time so you'll know exactly what time it is where I'm at.

    It's now Sunday Dec 4th at 3PM here in NYC so you have more than 1 day left

    Imager777- Your welcome to participate in this on your own time, but the only people this is Open to, for posting and receiving feedback and crits are the ones on the list on the first page, sorry.
    There are already people who applied for a round 2 and 3, which may or may not take place. There is a thread located in the lounge with more info about signing up but I had also posted a request that no more participants pm me until I indicate an open round.

    I'm afraid to post... lol but here they are:

    Creature Design process 101

    I really got frustrated because I couldn't come up with anything original, that's why some of the thumbnails plainly suck.
    Let me know if they aren't passable.

    Unless I somehow missed your thumbs, you guys on this list here still owe me 10 thumbs. You have until Dec. 6th 5PM USA,NYC time. check the first post for Time Zone Definitions to find out what time it is where I live.

    One space opened up because someone had to drop out for personal reasons, something that was more important and I agree. However I don't think there's enough time to fill a slot with someone from round 2, because I can't PM people plus there is only approx 26 and a half hours left.


    Profil <- I'll crit your thumbs as soon as possible.

    I have.. the utmost respect for creature artists now. This is the hardest thing I have ever done. I'm almost shamed to post mine in the company of everyone else's.. nevertheless.. I gave it my best, for a first attempt at drawing creatures..
