    thanx to Trashy for the topic idea!

    INFO:

    - We need 2 creatures...one being the beauty and one being the beast...
    - 2 different species or 1 male 1 female from the same species...or maybe another combination - it's up to you...
    - both creatures must have a relation between each in their daily life
    - no individual characters, no human like design!!!
    - description needed if not obvious

    I'm just marking my territory.

    I CALL THE TRANSFORMATION THEME!!! IT'S MINE DAWGS.

    C.O.W. - #048: Beauty And The Beast

    Here is my initial sketches. I plan on using almost a pig headed buffalo type thing, with an accessory pair of arms- then it transforms into the beast with a shorter snout, longer hair, longer, stronger neck, pointier hooves for balance. I want to make it look good though, not just a buffalo with arms... Any suggestions would be nice

    Seraph Whales and Angel's Tears (Final):
    C.O.W. - #048: Beauty And The Beast

    Planet Cautha is hostile to human life. A dense, rank, humid atmosphere of ammonia and sulfuric gas blankets the surface with a swirling, yellow cloud. Pressures and temperatures well exceed human tolerance. Nevertheless, the heavy metals mining is too good for human settlers to ignore the potential for profit. They've constructed domed colonies and scratch out an existence as best they can.

    Seraph whales, one of the planet's few indigenous life forms, thrive in the skys above Cautha. There they live, perpetually swimming through the thick vapor, feeding on the microscopic young of Cautha's other thriving native life form, a silicon based mollusk referred to as "Angel's Tears." Angel's Tears have some things in common with Earth's aquatic barnacles. They are born as microscopic aeropods (a). Mixing with the airborne plankton, they become the primary food source for the seraph whales. Those that survive this larval stage mature (b) and cement themselves to the skin of the whales' head and jaw (c). Once attached, the mollusks form a rock hard protective shell, and breed, spawning millions of aeropods each.

    When the Angel's Tears die, the cemented bond loosens from the seraph whales head and the tough shell falls to the planet surface. Human colonists avidly collect the shells much as one would collect seashells on a beach as souvenirs. The silicon crystaline shells are easily polished and carved into a variety of forms. Angel's Tears most often form six-sided shells, though occasionally seven-sided shells are found (d). Whether polished and carved, or left in the rough, their natural beauty is displayed as a native keepsake and a lucky charm in the colonist's home.

    here is my first rough wip....
    going for a parasite type for beauty, the moth lookin thing, which will have colorful and bright feather/wings. it attaches itself onto male beasts and while surviving off the beast's body, they are used to attract females and prey. bigger brighter beauties can only survive on bigger beasts, which in turn attract more females. the bigger the beauty, the more movement it creates to seem like a floundering bird, and thereby attracting unsuspecting creatures to the beast.
    the beast is a semi aardvark/hog/dragon type thing whose natural birth defects create a siamese-twin type creature. ugly i guess.
    all crits appreciated.

    ...The Beast has spoken. hehe

    BTW FOZZ, I think Pixeldargoon has to design two creatures, so technically there are two creatures.

    So...question...how about something that metamorphosizes? Like the ugly duckling turning into the beautiful snobby swan, or the caterpillar and the butterfly?

    I second that response. It really has nothing to do with the existing story. Just do 2 creatures that somehow relate, one that looks "beautiful" whatever that means to you, and the other that is beastly. I keep thinking about what animals have species that are beautiful, there are a lot of birds, fish, big cats. Now which to draw inspiration from to come up with something new....

    Cow

    Hello
    I'm certain that I'm way in over my head, but I pumped a solid three hours into this puppy (yesh the environ is a copout...next on my list of thing to learn to paint)

    yeah, if it isn't obvious, the Beast is the large fellow, a land mollusk, he’s a male, the colourful female is his lifelong partner, when not out foraging for copper and alum laden sands she spends her time latched to hsi under side, where her brightly coloured shell is hidden from predators.

    Yes, under this point of you, It makes more sense to me. Thank you guys! even if I find the formulation of the subject is still ambiguous because there is a background for "beauty and the beast"...whereas there is not for "three eyed and blue fur" for example. But thanks again!

    well, i am not applying to the story of the beauty and the beast, just using it as a topic...if there will be a movie or tale called "3 eyed and blue fur" created this year, will be a topic with the same name not ok for COW?

    And Pixeldragoon
    thanx for your support!

    No, i don't want that...because i rellay want 2 separate creatures...we can make another topic where we have 2 different appearances in 1 creature.
    The reason why i don't want this for now is, we would have really different entries in the fundaments which you can't compare well as you do with 1 creature with different designs.
    We would have to compare entries with 2 creatures and entries with only 1 creature metamorphing...

    I went with the male/female differences route.

    The Trakartan Tusked Lizards. As juveniles, both genders have long, thin spine protrusions connected with skin membranes, allowing them to glide short distances. The males grow thicker and heavier as they age, and eventually can no longer use the membranes for gliding. They are extremely aggressive, and protective of their territory. Violent fights and lack of use eventually tears away the membranes connecting their spikes. The females, who remain thinner and lighter, grow larger, colorful membranes, and remain able to glide throughout their lives, using the ability to escape danger.
