Here's my entry for this weeks COW. I want to put this in my 'folio and was wondering if you guys could give me a little (or alot of) C&C.

good balance of form and detail, feels really massive despite the levitation; good hues and use of reflected light and speculars; bioluminescence well-done, really helps the form & contours in subtle ways; your surfaces are always so rich, and getting better with every pic as far as i can see.
dripping phallic appendage is really suggestive -- intentional? -- may not be easy to fathom without explanation; cause & effect of energy emission from beasty and portal not all that solid to me; portal looks like it could be opening in a solid surface rather than empty space, i think because the BG is so diffuse and the floor line at bottom says "wall back here," leads to some ambiguity about the environment.

Ok, I've updated the critter.
Well, I changed the 'dripping appendage' back into a mouth. Thanks for pointing it out, I hadn't noticed it. Even after the removal of the drool, it still looked like a flaccid cock, so I put some skin under the neck to make the silhoutte less penile. I'm so glad you guys pointed this out. I wouldn't want to be showing prospective employers creatures that are potentially genitalia.
On another note, I probably wont have time to fix the portal before the big vote, so that'll stay as is. But as for the piece as a portfolio submission, I'll probably remove the portal all together and change the horns and ridge of its back.
Masque, Slayer - Thanks alot
