    thanx to Neorepto for the topic idea!

    Once again i want to point out that your creature should be representing a species and not a individual character!

    furry monkey

    Is this too human-like? Want to check before I carry on with this idea.

    don't know, at the end it depends on the details...the basic form is too humanoid yes...

    But why are you going for it, if you know it could be rejected...there are creatures out there in our world and i am sure out there in the galaxies, which are sooooo different from human anatomy, why are people always trying to go with this design....???

    go crazy, open your mind, try new things...be creative!

    Sweet! He picked my topic! Thanks Fozzy! This is great too because I finally have a Wacom and I can finally participate full-digital, full color.

    Kind of a muppet vibe all around between the trash monster and the blue fur.

    Perhaps next week can be big brown mammoths only tall yellow birds can see.

    I guess the humanoid form is easier for us to relate to, and easier to apply ideas to. I'll try out something different though, thanks.

    Not to play the prophet of doom or anything but this topic could pose some serious problems. The most horrid of which will be to decide between a bunch of creatures that look more or less identical. I mean thats like trying to decide which grape out of whole bunch is the best grape. Theyre all ovoid, purple, hanging from a stem, glossy, etc. Same thing here. Sure youll have different body styles to choose from but theyll all be covered in that blue fur which is a huge unifying factor. I dunno maybe Im making a big deal of nothing but I have bad feelings about this one.

    As for humanoid-trying: I think artists try to identify with their monsters, in a metaphorical sense anyway. Strange or exotic or interesting... that's why people try to anthropomorphize their designs. And humans have a tendency to anthropomorphize animals in general, muppets being a perfect example. The way people talk to their pets is another.

    As for omens of homogenous blue fur doom, I think the blue fur will become the neutral ground within which all the differences between the entries will shine. Besides, no one said each entry had to be cut from the same bolt of Cookie Monster Polyester Blue No. 4....As far as reference, I've been looking at all manner of mammals for fur stripes and spots and marks and there's plenty of variety out there. Saying they will all look the same is like saying all mammals look the same because most of them have fur somewhere on the continuum of brown.

    Hrmm, fair enough. I did consider the myriad possiblities but regardless its best to troubleshoot on day one. I suppose it will work out fine and perhaps I was thrown by a description containing not one but two specific physical characteristics. Thats not exactly a common thing with the project designation titles. I do forsee quite a few instances of "Shit that was my idea, back to the drawing board", but other than that it should prove quite the competition to outwit fellow competitors.

    Maybe we won't see so many wips? I don't know, I think we will be fine, exactly because it is so broad a description. You know, how many different kinds of interpretation for eyes or fur or blue can there be? Basically endless. I actually think that the broader the description, the easier it is to have a variety. I think I am going to just sit and think on this one a little bit, but it sounds like fun.

    This topic shouldn't be a problem at all.

    What if the topic was "2 eyes and fur"? There are so many real animals that fit the brief, all of varying shapes and sizes. The only difference here is we add one more eye, make the fur blue and have complete creative freedom to chop, change and invent!

    Having said that, I wonder who'll be the first to post a 3 eyed, blue dog. hehe... Or the first 3 eyed piece fur-ball.
