    I voted for Stephan_R and I agree with what some of the others said about this being whimsical. When I first thought of what a portal opener would be, I thought of some malicious creature totally bent on destruction, so it was nice to see this guy out for a joy ride. It has an Alice in Wonderland/cheshire cat kind of feel to it.

    Ceberae – cool concept, I like the idea of creature carrying portal. BTW, if I am not wrong this concept is based on Egyptian myth.
    MichaelMotion – This is excellent idea and funny too.
    Chuck,mate – In this entry I like more description then painting [usually is quite the other way, hehe]. Creature with ability to rotate around it`s axis to create portal - this is brilliant. Chuck – my suggestion – I really like your creativity, but only thing I am looking for in your works, and can’t find, are details. Sometimes you paint very “simply” paintings – maybe you can try add more details next time.
    MIKECORRIERO - As always excellent idea and painting. If this is not a secret Mike….. how much time you spend on this one?
    Walnut – When I saw your sketches/thumbnails, I was sure that will be great concept. Now I can say that they were better than final entry. I think you could spend more time on this one. However, this is still interesting concept.
    Erilaz – One of the best concept ideas in my opinion.
    Standing – Cool concept.
    Orion9282 – Idea of creature, which is carring, his own larder is cool, but I finally realize that your entry has one weak point. Your creature look almost exactly like a funny Triceratops. There is nothing wrong with that, but I think COW gives you total freedom in creation, so next time use it. Create something unique.
    Mitze – I like your idea and lights are great to.
    Romance – twisted and sick idea, but I love it. Great painting as always and excellent creature design. First when I saw it, I thought this creature is combined with many creatures [few organism in one]. BTW, I like your description.
    Digitalfly – I like your entry, especially this picture form creature autopsy

    Finally I had to choose between Ceberae, Chuck, Mike nad Romance.
    I voted for Romance.

    Cheers
    Kuba

    Ps. Thanks for any comments, crits and votes.
    Pps. death jargin, I think you have right, the pose is bit stiff.
    Ppps. Orion9282 congratulations!

    Thx for answer Mike.
    First, when I have read it, I was in shock! 30 min!!! WOW! Then, I have read the rest of text...hehe.

    I was worried, because I work to slow. However, if you spend on it something abut 8 hours, that’s fine. I am not so bad. I was always depressed, when Chuck, mate have post his picture. After 3 or 4 hours of working, they were looking better then my after 8 hours. But, Chuck is.....

    My vote was for Stephan_R's. Because it's dreamy, and it tickled me the right way.

    What signature?

    lots of nice art.
    but nothing is really an original idea or a fresh concept design that fits the brief.
    most of the pieces are a creautre projecting a portal out of their head, butt, etc.
    you ppl might as well post something like this and call it a day -



    ceberae - great light and shade, but it`s a snake with a portal above it.

    jonoy - nice colors, but the rendering is not so good, plus it looks too humanoid to be a COW.

    MichaelMotion - a very funny piece.

    JakkaS - great rendering and colors as always, but its a guy with a large head and 1 eye. not realy a COW.

    MIKECORRIERO - good painting. but its an ant. not much of a portal opener idea there.

    Stephan_R - hilarious. got a nice Tove Jansen quality to it.

    Erilaz - nice snail. with...legs.

    Standing - very good painting. don`t really see the portal opening part there.

    Orion9282 - good rendering. but it`s a lizard. a lovely one, still- just a lizard.

    romance - amazing art work. but not much of an idea.

    misledtomisery - looks good. and again - a pirana fish that projects a portal.

    so i didn`t vote this time.

    erm... whats with you chuck... i have not been here long but you have some serious problems with other people.... although i agreed with you in the venus chow you tantrum was strange.... as if you took it really persoanlly and now this? You say none has stuck to the brief... but the brief was portal opener.. that was it.. no more guidence other than the title... and everybody came up with their own inturpretation.. whats with really condesending attitude to others entrys by saying things like.. nice, but just a lizard.... thats just a really stupid comment mate. why can yours not be described as just a floating star fish?

    anyway i guess i am saying.. chill8)

    condesending?
    who`s condesending?
    i just call it as i see it.

    there`s this "suck-up-b-nice-n-cuddly-don`t-step-on-anybody`s-tows-or-you`re-outta-here" attitude in these activities.

    mine could easily be refered to as a "floating starfish" and i`m o.k. with that.
    it just happen to be generating a portal instead of projecting it like 80% of the works this round. that`s it.
    it`s not better or worse or anything.
    it`s just a given fact.

    what the fuck is so wrong with saying what i think?
    christ....
    and I need to "chill"??...

    I actually thought chucks post was an eye opener. I also did a common animal with a portal idea somehow just shoved on it. I'm not saying I agree with everything he said but he does throw up a good point.

    Actually I too am having a difficult time voting. I have the distinct feeling that the assignment has reference to something I don't know about. I mean Ive read a lot and portals appear in many books but I couldn't shake the image in my mind of the white rabbit and the key to the tiny door in Alice and Wonderland. Of course that is a character not a COW.
    I thought every one took a different handle on it, some make the portal, some are the portal. and for me the hardest part of COWs is to make a creature that doesn't look like some known terrestrial animal, or a combination. Is there some rule that it can't? that being said here are the notes I took while trying to decide which one to vote for.
    Ceberae- beautiful and would make a nice feature in a gothic fantasy
    Jakkkas- eep! scary but Im not sure that ripping out a soul actually creates a portal.....or maybe it might
    Soul weaver-- looks like one of those elaborate clams, or the husk off a filbert. nice drawing
    Mikecorriero- love the feet
    Flatliner- I really like its expression of benign humour
    Romance Beautifully drawn creature....Im not sure about the portal part

    Michael motion and complete 2 ..you entrys made me laugh, complete2 the expression on yours is priceless, placid surprise..

    althoguh I liked many of the entries as drawings, I didn't vote either, as I don't feel lik eI truly understand the criteria

    respectfully submitted

    JakkaS: Yes you’re right. It’s inspired by a number of myths though, not just one. Homage to Stargate so to speak (the movie not the series)

    Plate, hwango and everybody else who voted: thanks guys.

    Chuck, Mate: Thank you for the crit! Though I don’t agree with your perspective (not regarding my creature in particular), thank you for taking the time and speaking your mind. With your perspective, one might argue that the creature in "Alien" is a grotesque human with two sets of teeth. Everything looks like anything else. Hell, my CD player looks like a pancake! I don’t know why you waited so long to mention all of this, since a lot of the entries and WIPs were up way before the deadline (unless there were time constraints for you, then sorry about that).

    Chaosrocks: thank you. (I’m kind of starting to get confused as well.)

    If this is your reaction to my comments, you're taking them the wrong way. Skipped right through the point of making the crit earlier, when something can be changed, and right into being offended. Besides, that post looks familiar in nature: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...&postcount=156

    Meh...

    Don't know how to make it even clearer. I guess it's a stalemate.

    Damn, Chuck; you almost soun like me when I first entered, calling Masque a drunk dude and all... and, mainly, saying that everybody's art was childish crap. But... what the hell is wrong with ya? I don´t know ya or anything, but from what ive read you always have nice comments and warm thoughts and advice for everyone.
    And, besides, a portal cannot be projected, it has to be created accirding to the laws of physics, but, according to ya, a flash from the bulb that is hangin from the roof of my room can take us to venus, maybe i'll take a shot at it.
    Cool down, mate, pobodys nerfect, as they say.

    Heh, JakkaS, I meant to say that your entry is one of my favorites, I do like it, very much, but I had forgotten to write it when I wrote the favorites for this round

    I hope I could express myself correctly.

    chaosrocks: It's great that you voted and thank you that you voted for me. This vote is that extra spice that makes it interesting, you know? Who's going to win? I think when the subject is vague it's even more interesting, as there can be a bunch of wildcard choices. Like in a game of cards!

    The Boulder takes issue with that comment.

But coming from the guy who up until this point has never said anything remotely close to what you said in the voting thread
    it just seems out of character. I mean hell you sent me a link to your tutorial within just a few hours of my request (by the way that helped me a ton, I use that technique alot now, its really efficient, thanks so much). Seems perhaps youre out of sorts, bad day, something. But hey if it helps I'll start trying to be more honest with people, "tell it like it is".

    look, i`m a nice person.
    i am.
    but like you said: "People are almost sickeningly nice to each other in these forums and alot of people get praise that really don't deserve it."

    it just became a plauge. there`s no honest comments, no real crits. just dick sucking each other to death.
    the concept art industry is just that - an industry.
    how the crap would one get better if every comment is a suck up so you won`t be offended?
    i know these activities are for fun, but people just lost their mind. voting for preety pictures, or to their "best friend", or just to the guys that it would be best to keep on their good side.
    it`s bullshit.
    i ain`t taking part of this any more.

    what? i need to go down on a guy real good before i can say: look, dude, your creature is merely an ANT.
    you can say it`s based on scorpions and spiders and sell me your portal idea for the next 5 fucking hours.
    your creature is still just an ant.
    a well drawn one, yeah- but just an ANT.
    ?

    We all pay for life with death, so everything in between should be free.
