So is this an iceberg that devours things or something that devours icebergs?
Or an icerberg that devours nuclear planets?
I think I'll do an orange leviathan that devours giant nuclear dreamcicles.

I took a look through the COW FAQ post, but didn't see anything that would preclude us from doing something robotic or androidal. How much tech is allowed in these? Cyborgs? Full robota?

Artifex33: You walk in the city in the year 2015 and a couple of robots move by... then you think; "I wonder where those creatures are heading?"...
When it comes to the cyborg stuff it might be a case of the accessory rule, even in cases of permanent gadgets... but I'm just speculating.
I've painted on the canvas several times and simply changed stuff that I've been rather happy with... then... oops, I can't change this back can I? No undo-button? oh, perhaps I should have left that part alone?
Enjoy your leave, supervlieg!

Cloister: I doubt you'll see robots walking by as early as 2015. Sorry, we aren't even wearing silver suits yet.

I'm kind of gearing up for a painting with this one. I've always admired the Group of Seven, AJ Casson in particular, and I'm planning on doing something in his interesting style. Since it's simplified and stylized it seems to be something I'm attracted to as an animator. Anyhow, here's a rough concept of my creature. Think of it as a kind of aggressive sea cucumber!
Here's my finished guy...
Igens Glacies Venterius "Huge Ice-Stomach"
A deep-sea creature by nature, this ocean giant can be found in both the Arctic and Antarctic Oceans clinging to the bottoms of icebergs. The increased salinity of the ocean depths acts as a slight toxin to the Igens Glacies Venterius, and it has discovered that the perfect way to dilute the excess salt in its system is to slowly swim up to the surface in order to feast on the pure fresh water found in the iceberg. Using its mandibular hooks it grasps onto the bottom of a found iceberg and engulfs the lower portion in its thick rubbery maw, grinding away at the ice with rasp-like teeth deep within its mouth. The skin surrounding the mouth is extremely thick and rubbery to avoid gashing itself on the sometimes jagged ice, while the rest of the creature's body is covered in very loose wrinkley skin to aid in the inevitable swelling that occurs once it has consumed the entire lower portion of the iceberg.
