    silentkitty:
    concept: stocking surprise
    This critter is known as the "candy worm" by people indigenous to the area that it dwells in, because of its somewhat festive coloring. It makes its home in any dry, warm place that it can find, often migrating from spot to spot under the cover of night. During the christmas season, one of its favorite habitats, of course, is nestled within stockings hung above a nice warm fireplace, where it settles in until disturbed by a greedy hand reaching for the toys it has made into its nest.

    masque:
    concept: stocking surprise
    The Christmas Stalkling subsists almost entirely on goodies unwittingly stuffed down its throat during the holiday season, and occasionally the fingers of over-indulgent wassailers.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Eric Lofgren:
    concept: Chimney Tube Worm (It Came From The Chimney)
    This is it's pupal stage. It's very similar to dragonlfy larvae (I think), that encase themselves in little twigs and pebbles that stick to it's body with a secretion. In this case, the Chimney Worm egg finds purchase in an existing tube structure, such as a chimeny. It subsists on a diet of carbonized ash and wood and the occasional soot covered chimeny sweep. Given it's unique living accommodations it's body is pliable enough to allow it to create a flue that runs through it's entire body allowing chimney smoke to pass through. This can also act as camofluage as well. It's a very rare creature, though, as it's pupal stage lasts for a single year and to develop into a mature adult it requires a large meal of protein enriched red polyester and black vinyl. Once consumed, it enters into it's final stage as a winged adult and flys away. Otherwise it dries up and becomes nothing more than the ash and wood bits that it lives within.
    The most uniqe aspect of the Chimney Tube Worm is it's maw, which features four very plaible yet strong tentacles that are coverd in razor sharp teeth. When it has a meal in it's mouth the creature can rake it's teeth very quickly back and forth and up and down on its prey reducing it to pulp in seconds. The protein material quickly gets absorbed by the body of the worm and waste is expelled as a powdery like substance that mingles with the smoke and ash. It also has a single rudimentary eye housed near the center of each tenticle as well.
    To capture it's prey, the worm wraps the two toes at the end of each tenticle around the lip at the top of the chimeny and qucikly pulls itself out of the chimney and right onto the prey. It quikly wraps it's tenticles around the victim and sucks it into it's mouth. Where it immediately begins to render it's meal into a puly mass. Once satisfied, the worm flattens its body and quickly slides it's back down into the chimeny and waits.

    romance:
    concept: The Dirt Sloth (also known a Santa Claws)
    This creature can be found in temperate zones all over the Earth. It dwells within the ground, hunting earthworms, grubs, and the occasional mole. In the wild, they have been known only to surface during wet conditions.
    Over recent years, the Dirt Sloth has been raised by breeders and have overcome their need to dwell underground and their low-tolerance to sunlight. Breeders are still trying to produce Dirt Sloth's that are less tempered.
    Bred Dirt Sloth's are sold all year-round as multi-purpose utility 'pets', as their extremely sharp claws and handle-like horns make them wonderful cutting 'tools'. Their sales rise during the Christmas season as consumers use them for cutting Christmas trees, carving turkeys and hams, opening gift boxes, frightening naughty children, and making cranberry sauce (note: creature does not make cranberry sauce with its claws).
    Ethical concerns have been raised about the use of this creature as a tool and product. Even protests have been held in front of petstores selling the creatures. Although, the protests don't last long, as petstore owners often threaten the protesters with angry Dirt Sloths.

    young_paddy1:
    concept: stocking surprise
    The 'stocking filler' is the larval stage of the 'roof stalker', it is completely vegetarian at this stage of its life and survives best inside the christmas stockings of families where the parents haven't realised, fruit and nuts are not presents. The 'stockiing filler' is inserted into the christmas stocking a year before it matures, being the only item of clothing hardly anybody washes, the soft egg case will sit in a linen closet or airing cupboard keeping warm allowing the 'stockiing filler' to develop. Aroused by the placing of the stocking over a hot fire and after having eaten the fruity bounty and occasional stuffed animal put inside its temporary home, the 'stockiing filler' will eventually make its way outside and up onto the roof.

    grey:
    concept: freudian squid (stocking surprise)
    these twisted creatures came into existence in the late sixties, on one fateful night when Santa ate a few 'special' brownies left out for him by the young Hunter S Thompson. St. Nick had a really bad trip, and the 'squid were born in the resulting psychic turmoil, haunting the dark corners and back alleys of Xmas Town ever since. Though viciously ill tempered and known for their love of reindeer flesh, they are poor hunters as the 'click-clack' of their high heels usually give them away. What their appearance says about the psyche of Mr. Claus, however, has been the subject of many aspiring psychiatrist's PHD research.

    llothcat:
    concept: It Came From The Chimney
    This here thing is actually a "hungry ghost". sometimes it obeys the laws of our dimension, sometimes not. Semi transparent,it looks for the living to drain life from. Usually appearing between the hours of 2359 and 2400 on December 24th, when the magic of that time opens the way to our dimension breifly.

    Negrotuerto:
    concept: Santa Hunter
    This horrible creature hides in the snow and waits for an innocent Santa, when Santa sees the poor Tiny Tim (that in fact it is a simple decoy) He descends to leave to little Tim a gift.. In this instant the creature emerges from the snow and it begins hunt to fat Santa.
    The Santa hunter have in it back a one scale model house with grass, lights and a fake Tiny Tim. This thing eats only fat Santas, leprechauns, and little fairies.

    madplanet:
    concept: It Came From The Chimney
    Hidden amongst the broken bricks and deeper crags of the chimney, this creature uses its glowing tongue lure to attract other smaller critters for a late night snack. Of course, once a year it waits and it hopes that some fat slow moving visitor will satisfy its hunger.

    JakkaS:
    concept: The Great Animal Encyclopedia of Planet Gobb
    Volume 10, Chapter 9 Birds
    Ho-Ho-Ho Birdy - i.e. Santa Claws
    Everybody heard about it, but no one has ever seen it before. Although, there are a few reliable reports on this creature. These information come from Professor Wigilius, a ornithologist, the only eye-witness. Acording to his claims, the Santa Claws spicies live in distant taiga of Planet Gobb. But it's hard to believe due to his alcohol addiction.
    Anyway, it's very hard to come up against this creature because it is very skittish, however it's croak can be easily identified: "Ho...Ho....Ho.............Ho....Ho...Ho".
    Red feathers serve only a repelling purpose, but its major weapon is stench. It spurts out stinky liquid from its cloaca. Professor says, these birds have the most stinky and foul excrements in the world... hmmm... maybe even in whole universum! Professor Wigilius calls it tenderly - a Santa's Gift...

    Trollboy:
    concept: The Santa Hunter
    Very rare, the santa hunter has developed some unique features to lure its prey. The tip of its tail has evolved to resemble a plate of chocolate chip cookies, complete with a glass of milk(The glass of milk is actually a specialized nail, which is filled with a blinding venom that is splashed into the eyes of prey). An adept climber, it often enters houses through the chimney, and hides under tables with its tail above, and waits. It was named the Santa Hunter, as it is most often seen around christmas time, when it attacks unsuspecting parents as they place presents under the tree.
    It has also been called Santas Claws, and some believe, probably because if its large ears, that it is a demonic creature summoned by the Easter Bunny.

    pr0ph3t:
    concept: JINGLE KRINGLE (It came from the Chimney)
    The Jingle Kringle is a creature which kidnaps bad children in the night. He usually arrives after Santa Claus has left and slides down the chimney. His tail is similar to a rattlesnakes in that it contains several small bones which make a jingle bell like sound. Bad children hiding or staying up waiting for Santa but missed him(because that Santa is one sneaky clever guy) think that he has arrived. But upon entering the living room are surprised to find the Jingle Kringle in his place. The Jingle Kringle then scoops up the child and places him in a hollow pouch in his back, for feasting or spanking later. He supports himself with his forearms while tossing using the second set of forearms which adjoin his main pair at the elbow for grabbing a tasty snack from storage. He can fold and compress to fit in even the smallest chimney(at a reasonable size that is.)

    Bennet:
    concept: Yuletide Carpet Muncher (Santa Hunter)
    The Carpet Muncher stays dormant year round and awakens a week before Christmas to burrow tunnels beneath the floorboards of several homes with lower level dens and family rooms. The life cycle of the Carpet Muncher (up to a century) is unexpectedly long considering it's limited food source (only 1 Santa in the world). As expected, it can go years without a meal, patiently setting traps in many single family homes in anticipation of that fateful moment that gives rise to the next heir to Santa’s sleigh, and thus begins the gestation period of the next generation Carpet Muncher. The relationship between the Muncher and Santa is symbiotic indeed. The larva of the next gen Yuletide Carpet Muncher slowly feeds off of Santa’s Carcass as the previous Muncher dies and becomes host to the new genetically superior offspring.

    Plate:
    concept: THE TALE OF THE SANTAVORE

    On the night before Christmas, on top of the house
    One creature still stirred – sure as hell not a mouse
    For this creature was evil in every way
    A predator very selective of prey
    The mind of this monster had only one track
    Turning jolly St. Nick to a seasonal snack
    Poor Santa knew not what that night had in store
    For that night, Santa met with a starved Santavore

    The beast was a festive but terrible sight
    With its candy cane antlers and glowing tail-light
    The stocking-like legs and its jingle-bell eyes
    A sickly green hue and of frightening size
    But the worst of its features, without any doubt,
    Was the chimney imposter it had for a snout
    With this devious decoy it sought to destroy
    The purveyor of Christmas-day laughter and joy

    Its claws made short work of the real chimneystack
    Then it ripped through the roof and crawled in on its back
    Hidden under the snow with its trap set and baited
    It lay snug in the attic and patiently waited
    But it didn’t wait long, for shortly thereafter
    Came the clacking of hooves and that signature laughter -
    A trio of “Ho” as he landed his sleigh
    And Santa stepped out in his jolly old way

    With his sack on his back, he approached the big fake
    And, as he jumped in, realized his mistake
    But the creature lashed out with its tongue made of wreath
    And ensnared him with thousands of pine-needle teeth
    The children awoke from their sugarplum dreams
    To the earsplitting clamor of Santa’s last screams
    With a slurp and a gulp, old St. Nick met his end
    And the beast bounded off, never witnessed again

    From whence had it spawned, this detestable breed?
    Pure manifestation of holiday greed?
    A monster of holiday lore, long forgotten?
    A genetically engineered mascot gone rotten?
    We may never know, but it just goes to show
    That even great legends can be doomed to woe
    But wipe up those tears, and cast off that scowl -
    ‘Least the Easter Bunny’s still living… for now…

    THE END

    Grey got my vote with the most hysterical interpretation of stocking surprise. Great story as well.
    Some super concepts....all across the board and very creative. Sorry that I couldn't play with my concept more....please note that in my record, Foz.
    Cheers!

    I voted for JaKKas, Incedible work my friend. As far as concept it is pretty amazing but really it was the end product that awed me. The rendering talent you put into this is amazing. ANd that little thing where it actually looks like Santa was nice. I loved your canyon maker but this is beyond that. I think close in second for me were grey's, masque's, negrotuerto's, and plate's. Excellant entries all around though. Merry Christmas.

    I voted for JakkaS as the best, visually appealling and just well rendered. It's such a simple concept really, but I never would have thought of it in a million years. And the eye is really cool.
    My runners-up:
    Silentkitty- Great idea and just plain creepy. I'd hate to see the kid who sticks his hand in there. The overall red gives this one a nice eerie feel.
    Chuck,mate- Action all the way! I can sense the mayhem that this little critter can and will do. It looks great.

    cool, votes! thank you!

    my vote's silent kitty, for really nailing a creepy, insidious concept - I had a gut reaction the first time I saw it

    masque a close second for a perfectly executed idea, and jakkas as well for his topshelf rendering skills

    lofgren, and romance a couple of personal favorites

    Thanks madplanet, grey! I really appreciate it.

    I voted for Eric Lofgren, there's just something hilarious to me about the santa suit flying everywhere (yes, I have a strange sense of humor). : p

    Also, llothcat, I meant to mention in the other thread I noticed all the changes yours went through over time, it turned out great.

    It was difficult to make a choice, but in the end I went with Grey's entry. The concept is blindingly funny and equally as disturbing, not to mention excellently painted, all at the same time. I guess more than anything the nature of the concept just suits my twisted mood :p

    Some others that I think deserve equal mention are silentkitty; romance; negrotuerto; chuck,mate; DARIZ and JakkaS. I like all the others as well, but those 7 plus Grey's really stand out for me. And Plate, your poem was very well written. And your concept is pretty cool too

    And a big thank you to whomever votes for mine!

    Great work guys! I voted for JakkaS : )

    EDIT: I really like how you include all your creatures in The Great Animal Encyclopedia of Planet Gobb. I would really love to have an illustrated encyclopedia-style book like that by you, with your creatures and illustrations

    First of all, thx everybody for your kind words and votes.

    I read all comments but don’t write much. I don’t have time to learn English (…hmmm, why I didn’t do that in school?) and to sit with dictionary and writing (I spend too much time with this). It’s really frustrating, but I have time only for one thing. So I paint, and don’t comment much.

    I’m not a professional graphic/painter, so every comment from you is very important for me. I realize that learning from you is only way to improve my skills, and this comment help me a lot. I’ve been in this community for a few months and during this period I've done much more paintings than in whole last year. So, once again THX you!

    Thx Fozzy. Your vote is twice as much important to me. You are here from the beginning. You are the Boss. Hehehe.

    WOW! I am happy you like it. But I think, I am not even half good as u write.

    Thx for vote bR0ken.
    This book is a splendid idea! And I thing, in one year I will have enough paintings for that :]
    I am really addicted from COW.

    I voted for …..

    romance – excellent painting, this creature is so soft and cuddly. [I want see it in action. Hehehe.]
    Eric Lofgren – You are sick man…..but I like it. Its really nice concept.
    grey – good idea and excellent painting.

    …and finally [I want to vote for this 3!!!] I chose romance! Usually I vote more for concept, idea then rendering, but this time couldn’t resist. This creature is really great.

    Cheers!

    DARIZ's is insane! Perfect execution, it's just the concept that didn't really appeal :/

    ...But my vote goes to NegroTuerto....that is just fuckin' jaw-dropping!

    JakkaS,

    Język polski, angielski, hiszpański, etc.
    Ten sam światowy język z różnymi słowami.
    Wasza praca potrzebuje żadnego wyjaśnienia. To mówi dla siebie samodzielnie, i to mówi dobry.

    JA rzeczywiście obmyślają co to jest fachowym jakością.

    JA używam polerują angielski translator i vice-versa. Bardzo trudny.

    I voted for Jakkas, cause I loved his creature and it was brilliantly executed. Honorable mentions for me were Negrotuerto and Eric Lofgren, because I liked their concepts and their execution too.

    I voted for Jakkas because I like his concept about this creature and his incredible fuck#$%ng render skills! Damn you! I am going to fly to Poland and I'm going to cut your hand to study it.

    Red, you have the second place here, nice concept man!
    romance, dariz and chuck I like your concept too but I had one vote.

    and thx for all the comments and votes about my "cute but dea... ehem! ehem!... I mean.. my "santa hunter" ok, ok.. I know.. is not too original but I must confess to have drunk 2 cider bottles while I painted it so ... c'mon! it was Christmas

    I wish to all of you an excellent 2006!!!
    Hugs

    Romance's entry stood out to me the most. Very cute/disturbing. Oddly festive. Effectively illustrated.

    Dominus: I love the lighting and how naturally the Christmas motifs are incorporated.

    silentkitty: The Scariest. I hope you sent that out as Christmas card.
