I might as well post some more ideas here.
Interstellar Racing Creature
Part dog part.... the other part the artist decides to make things interesting
^keep me going by visiting my sketchbook^
You know, I kind of go in for some of the classic, familiar stuff, redone though. So, while the subject may be boring, it could be spiced up some
- Wood nymph
- Classic "grey" alien (a Spielberger )
scene: innovative futuristic society
machineflesh idea from cgtalk
Culture and gods of a society with descriptions and such
Kelmoush!!(d'know what it means)

Registred wild animal
actualy my name is paul(i think)
Fear Liath More
Indrik the Beast
Monster of Loch Ness, The
Someone just pasted his own daily-creature research list
If you have time can you add detailed information about some creatures, for the not so popular ones like: Broxa, Cherufe, Nahuelito etc...?
CREATURE WITH TWO SPINES!
Darwin's worst nightmare.
Unique litte one.
What Freud secretly hid under his desk.
A creature that is not part of any of the 5-kingdomes, but an entirely new one.
elite soldier beasts
how about an alien head parasite and it's host
futuristic derelict post war automation
a few ideas tossed whimsically from my mind whilst under the influence:::
- A bipedal creature with at least 3 different species incorporated. (Bipedal = two legged). For instance: Head of a wolf, body of a human, legs of a lion. Whey basic.
- Two creatures that live symbiotically on one another and will die if separated.
- A monster that can blend into everyday city streets and not be noticed.
- A beast made from clotted blood that continually flows and cannot be stopped.
- The underwater creature that really sunk the titanic.
- Something discovered in aztec or incan ruins.
- Older than the sun.
Hope these are some fun and fairly open ended ideas. Id like to see one of em done Enjoy and on with the fun!! MOO!
I don't believe anyone has mentioned :
and i'd like to see this :
Hermit Creature (like a hermit crab, anything that shelters itself within something else)
a Pokemon-esque creature (really anything so long as it is little and cute-ified, i would love to see some of the great artists who draw the most ferocious looking beasts do something like this.)
a creature that could survive a nuclear holocaust
microscopic creatures that live in/on humans
a pod of space whales.
inhabitants of a gas planet.
1. A redo of a mascot (school/college/pro sports), or a made up sports mascot of the artist's choice.
2. Undiscovered deep sea creature.
3. Giant Flesh Eating Plant (FEED ME SEYMORE!!!)
4. Next Ice Age's Mega Fauna (today's animals evolved for ice age conditions)
5. Zombie Pet
6. Unique Self Defense Creature (sunk odor, porcupine quills, etc.)
7. Life on Europa (creatures that could survive in the frozen over seas of Jupiter's moon, Europa)
8. Mobile Home (A creature so big that people can build a home on it, or use a part of its body as a livable shelter)
9. Creature that King Kong will fight in the remake this year
10. Scariest Predator (This would have to be the mother of all C.O.W. topics. It would be judged on the sheer nightmarish appearance. It would have to be so scary that you wouldn't even wanna look at it, it gives you the creeps so bad.)
- monster in disguise
- when pigs can fly
- a party-animal
- the toilet creature or the creature that lives under the bed.

DOIT. DOIT.Originally Posted by Uziel
dang... all the good ones taken up...
amphibious flying creature...
um...creature with no head...?
element based creatures...
maybe like a mythical made up thing, like a magical frog or something. like how Horse is to Unicorn as to Frog is to ___________(fill in blank)
argh. stupid ideas...
"Is there a way I can take my pants off?..." - Snake from MGS3: SE
Tank Crab (not anything to do with tanks, just think heavyly armored)
King Squid (even bigger and tons kooler than giant squid)
Anything with squid!
Deep sea Whale fish
Toxic pill bug
Anyone seen 'The fly'? know where she dreams about having that maggot baby? Think about a creature who maniplulates the egg of a newly formed life into with its own sperm or watever ya want so the human (main targets, bigger babies = World dominance)
i guess ya could call it the 'Rape bug' or something
Crit for a crit!
we keep in in the basement
the thing that would not die
an unwelcome guest
it pathetically tried to use the silverware
small, compact, lethal
the gentle giant
it can smell your fear
crossbred to madness
its love for her killed it in the end
a family secret
don't laugh at it , that will only make it angry
feeding its young
the female of the species is more dangerous than the male
and to think, it was just a little boy once
it runs in packs
it requires a living host for its young
the digestion can take up to a week
watching it eat made the guests sick
it devours its young
my father was a great man, to see this as his final creation, is just incomprehensible
the husks of their corpses eventually were made into vast cities, and the titans were forgotten
it feeds on the dreams of children
once the door was opened, no one could close it
it could consume up to 40 quarts of blood a day
in the day, it looked innocuous
with the dawn, came the swarm
the eggs had been laid, it was too late to save her
wearing a human skin was a feeble disguise for this disgusting and stupid creature
upon insertion, it would swell to a lethally huge size
I hope that none of these have been posted before:
- Sewer snake
- Devourer of planets
- Alien amphibian
- Stone golem
- Plasma lizard
- Water-based lifeform (like in The Abyss)
- Lava squid
- Trash beast
- Living disease
- Fire insect
- Carnivorous fungi
- I thought it was edible...
Hope those help,
i like that oneOriginally Posted by shadoman
how about: conceptart.org cliche monster!
try to make the most stereotypical creature ever,and put a gasmask on it!
Okay, this one is going to need a little bit of a preface:
My kids have their own worlds, "Dragono" and "Eagano". They have come up with, among many, many, many, many other things, the Zap Mighty Electric.
Now, I'm not *entirely* certain what a Zap Mighty Electric *is*, but what I've gathered is that it is some sort giant biomechanical creature used to defend both Dragono and Eagano from the "Debles" of "Debleno", the *ULTIMATE* bad-guys.
Now, Zap Mighty Electrics have got, well, weapons, and more weapons. And they're armored. And have *lots* of limbs to hold all of the weapons. And they sort of look like lobsters. Or crabs. Or something...armored. They are invincible. Indestructable. They can't be busted or broken or damaged. Dust goes everywhere when they take a step (quoting my four year old here...). They're *really* big. Huge. So if you want to draw one close up, you have to use a *really* big piece of paper.
And they have pinchers, too. They hold giant lightsabers, too. They hold different kinds of fighting tools, too, like axes and swords and things. And guns.
They can be different colors. Usually two colors, but *not* rainbow. And dragons and eagles can sometimes ride inside.
: It' important to note that the dragons of Dragono are six limbed, four hands, two legs. Actually, the more limbs, the better, and tend to be very scientific and technologically advanced. However; the Eagles of Eagano are Bald Eagles, they use their feet like hands, and are noble warriors

Well, i didnt know where to put this comment, but here it goes:
" So far, the art seen in C.O.W is really good, some have movement, some a really good pain work, and others are cool ideas, but if i have to say anything bad about it, it would be the lack of reseach to make the concepts ( moust of the research related problems appeared in the symbiosis predator C.O.W), im not saying that is neesesary for concept artist to folow biology perfectly, im just saying that they should be able to undestand the basic concepts(moustly to play with them in order to get even better concept art)..."
So my point is that the next C.O.W s could ask for research fomr the artists ( ridiculous i know) or ( this could be better) this forum could have another weekly or montly contest that could be more related to make a research on a topic( an interesting topic of cource), and then post the results and making them original at the same time ( as i already said, to research doesnt mean that you need to do things with perfect logic, it mean you can play with logic and create original concepts).
As for new ideas for C.O.W, is better to use vague and general words or frases, for example -"flying terror" or " Tricky Beast"..
Thats all i think
Not to be an ass, but I have a hard time taking a post about lack of research seriously when it's so chalked full of typographical errors...Originally Posted by Shamagim
As for the research aspect, Fozzy is the final say, but I think this is more about imagination. Obviously, if someone puts more scientific research into their piece, it will be better, depending on the subject. But it's really up to the artist.
And regarding your last point - "As for new ideas for C.O.W, is better to use vague and general words or frases, for example -"flying terror" or " Tricky Beast".."
...*what* That doesn't even make sense. Is this a question? Are you stating something? I'm sorry, I just don't understand what you are saying here...
Im sorry about the typos, i did the post kinda fast and all (really sorry about that), but you dont need to get mad at me, i wasnt attacking anyone, as for my point, i did say that i wasnt talking about specific knoledge, i was talking about basic concepts, such as "symbiosis" or "predator" ( i wasnt saying that you should know the quemical composition of the chitin armor)Originally Posted by Oregano
Also i wasnt saying that C.O.W should be about research, i actually did say my own idea was ridiculous, and then i said that it would be nice if we had another weekly contest beside this one, and that one could be about researching concepts..
As for my last point, i dont think i need to explain it, cause is not that important.....
