The Lemmy (Lemur Madidus Visio)
The Lemmy is found in the Highlands of ireland. The most remarkable feature of the Lemmy is its manner of self defense. When it is chased by a predator, it will wait for a unexpected moment in the chase, bend over and stick it's hind legs in the air revealing a face-like feature on its underbelly. This menacing "face" on its belly is complemented by its huge tail giving it a look not unsimilar to a somewhat drunken rockstar. On its underbelly the Lemmy evolved two light area's with dark spots on its skin, resembling two wide open eyes.
While in this pose, the Lemmy furiously waves its hind legs and its fake head. This threathening pose, called the "Lemmy face", is most effective in scaring off all chasing predators. For more curious predators the Lemmy has a second detterent. In a final act of indignity the Lemmy slightly lifts its tail and sprays the predator with it's feacies.
The Lemmy is a very curious creature. When one is chased, nearby Lemmies are often seen watching the chase from afar. They seem most amused when the predator is scared by the Lemmy face and moreso when the predator is chased of by a hail of little nuggets of shit. But it must be know, that although the Lemmy may seem scary, it is harmless. It has no real defenses, and once the predators catch on, it will surely mean the end of this akward creature.

heheh - i'm still waiting for my COW star!! I'm stunned i won it!
This one is going to be tricky.....i'm thinking the real challenge here is to paint it without anything else to imply that the creature is harmless.....say, if you had it being petted by children, but it looked hideously scary. I think thats a cheeky way around it!!!
hmnmnm - the thinking cap goes on......and.....hey this thing doesnt work!!

oooh, cool, I didn't know you get a cow star for winning! Sweet - there is an extra incentive to participate! Yippi! How do you get the bunny head next to you avatar? Does it mean admistrator? Probably, right? But it already says administrator so it would be somewhat redundant. Then again, the more "schnickschnack" the better!my homepage: http://www.trickstertoys.com

Well, I'm thinking about participating in this COW-thing for the first time... and as I'm sketching away and look at my stuff, I sort of think: Is it okay if it's scary enough to give you a heart-attack... and can you call that harmless? Just checking, to be sure...

as long as it's harmless it's ok...you know i could get a heart-attack by looking at Michael Jaeckson (haha, built-in insider gag got it? ) but wait...is he harmless though?...you got the point...

If I had a dollar for every time someone thought they were first making up that pun I wouldnt have to look for work as a concept artist.
However, being the butt of one of your jokes makes me feel like I belong, so I accept your humor in the spirit with which it was intended.

PS, you made me change the avatar. It was all you.
