    Cow 1271 CREATURES! 50 ROUNDS OF COW! More info inside with a HUGE poster!!!

    Soooooooooooo....

    COW reached the magical number of 50 rounds!!!

    1271 creatures were created by 400 artists, who are members on conceptart.org.

    There is your poster, it's HUGE!!! (1,3 MB)


    But it's worth the download because nearly ALL creatures are shown on this poster (actually 1253, because some image-links were missing)!!!

    Enjoy:

    Awesome! I have to get back into doing the COW again. I'm swamped for the next week, but I'll definitely be taking part in it again soon, now that Round 1 of the LMS is done.

    Congrats to fozzy and everyone who has taken part in the COW!

    br0ken_spirit
    Thanx and i am glad you are still on board...24 entries makes you 4th in the ranking of most entries And being in COW from the 6th round makes you a veteran...and you forgot MR.COW Matt Dixon in your list

    Damn Fozz, I have to say that the CoW and it's spawn are some of the greatest ideas to get the community particpating that this forum has ever seen. SO cool to see the works altogether like this.

    nice topic fozz with funny facts.

    eventhough i participate for the first time this week, i think it's great how much effort u put into this. After all this is one of the things c.a. is famous for and by lookin at the other activity's one can sure tell how hard it is to keep entry's comming (the activity alive).

    hope everythin keeps going that good for u aswell. gogo flash!

    nils~

    Wow. Quite amazing to see all those critters collected together like that.

    I wonder if you might have topped 2000 if your rules weren't quite so strict? Seriously though, it's those rules and the rest of your excellent management that helps to make the COW such a great activity. Thanks, Fozzy.

    Long live COW..!

    HOLY MOTHER OF GOD! That is a gift that keeps on giving. Foz...my monochromatic hero of muppetry, I adore what blood, sweat and tears you have given conceptart! Fortunately, muppets don't have blood or sweat or tears, or you'd be spent like a dollar bill.
    THANKS BUD!

    Wow. I've done COW 29 times?
    I must admit that participating and just seeing all of the weekly COW entries have really helped me see how many different techniques and approaches there are to concepting. I believe it is this aspect of COW that has helped me improve in my own skill sets.
    Good times.....good times.
    Cheers!
