    This one should be really good. The big, traditional archetypes always draw a crowd of nice entries.

    Now you chose "Hellish Beast" for topic?! Now, when I'm off to London?! May the diabolical red of your fur curse you for eternities abyssmal!

    Seriously, I'm done COW-ing for some months. I intend to enter into a period of spiritual exercise and there will be no time to join in such lustful events as these. I must say that I have truly enjoyed my time here, and I will return eventually. I hope that some of your ugly avatars still hang around then, and that I will see some bunny-ears and stars next to them. Take care - it's been a delightful company!

    I'm not sure it's the right place, but as a farewell I post this drawing of mine, that I did back in 1995. At least the topic is suitable...

    Cheers!

    What is it about the northern europeans and the horror vacuui? s'all right by me of course, I love it when the page gets full. This is a wonderful drawing. How big is it? I'm looking for my face in there. ...

    You can't leave Cloister! Spiritual exercises cannot be found elsewhere. They are where you make them. What is the sound of one COW clapping, I ask you? Whatever your answer, you got it right. Unless you didnt answer, in which case you also got it right.

    Well, have fun in London. You will be missed. We'll be just as ugly as we ever were when you get back. Most likely, much more ugly.

    Well, I was going to treat you guys to a full page of sketches, but I stumbled upon what I was looking for in my third sketch. Behold, the hellhorse! Along with a hellhound, a little fiery guy, and a familiar punkinhead.
    Obviously, the hellhorse is a favored mount of demon legionnaires. Its hooves spark when they strike the ground and smolder when the creature is at rest, and its crescent-shaped head emits flames and great clouds of smoke.

    I'm gonna have to do some serious horse, fire, and smoke studies if I'm to go all Barlowe's Inferno this week.

    These then are my hell thumbs. A caravan of six six-legged hellephants, "panda"emonium and ass-face flyeyes.

    C.O.W. - #066: Hellish Beast

    It may be skirting the humanoid rule a bit, but I will probably move forward with ass-face flyeyes. And in honor of the self-portrait day, I will probably model the assface after my own. But I do consider it a creature, not a character. There are more than one of these in hell. They are Beelzebub's minions, as he is the lord of the flies.

    Moai already digging your beasts! Sweet! Make it great!

    Michael I like the six legged elephant idea. I'm not too crazy about the head thus far though. Make it great!

    Cloister, good luck with your journey. Hoping to see you around here when you're back on a higher level of being.

    I'm thinking of some kind of a demons favorite pet.

    dragon4lunch- I'll try! There'll be no half-assing from me this round, or even three-quarter-assing. I'm going whole-ass on this one.

    I actually came up with something fast enough to MAYBE finish it....but even if I don't finish it in time, I'll continue on it because I really like it.

    I've got two questions/sources of critique.

    Firstly, I wanted to know how I could make this look even more gaunt across the chest and withers....The neck and legs are fine as they are though.

    Secondly, I wanted advice on the claws. At first, I was thinking of dog-like claws...but then what came out looks more like rapture claws. Do you think I should stick with how they look (roughly, I'll be using a reference I think so they look better) or do you think dog-like claws would be more fitting?

    And so here's my COW...though I have yet to finish a single one *lol*

    HOUNDHORSE: Beautiful in their grace and beyond deadly, once they have you in sight, they'll hound you until you're fit only for carrion. Thus why they are named Houndhorses. These demons have extremely developed senses of smell and sight and they have a psionic link between them. They are cunning pack hunters, usually consisting of 4-7 demons per pack with one lead stallion. The lead stallion will go off and locate prey and then psionically transmit his location to the rest of the pack. Many times, the prey doesn't even know he's been targeted until the whole pack descends on him.

    They absolutely LOVE to chase their prey...in fact, they will cruelly forgo the kill just so the prey runs farther for longer. The more the prey tries to evade them with intelligence, the more chances for them to actually finish the kill cleanly instead of taking a torturous and painful amount of time to dismember the poor soul.

    The only way to evade them when they are in the air is to kill the lead stallion of the pack. Killing the lead stallion causes psionic shock to the rest of the pack which causes them to fall from the sky. Once on the ground, dazed and confused, they are as vulnerable as any other horse, though still hard to kill because of their tough hides.

    Needless to say, beware the sky...perhaps that bird that keeps flying by your line of vision is no bird at all....

    This is an evil monster who can only be found in the nightmare,call it Hell Growl for the moment! It has furious character and fatal body fluid. In the hell, I assume it must the guardian of the Death.

    Haven't been in for ages, 't'was about time!

    "The only way to the Hidden Chamber was obstructed by a blazing sea of molten rocks and ore and blood. And there, in the very midst of the abyssal furnace, the Guardian Beast throned upon a black stone, a tongue made of flames, and two twisted horns instead of eyes, and it was indeed a terrifying sight to behold."

    Armande de Guerremegny, Knight of the Order of the Holy Cross, plundering crusader. 1097 AD.
