I've been watching from the sidelines for a while, but I think I'm going to join in on this one.
Here are a few ideas. I immediately started thinking of swarming bugs for some reason, so I went with beetle and moth/butterfly ideas. I use the Photobooth mirror idea from the Alien Race book to come up with the shapes for them- can you guess what I used? I'm digging the bottom one so far, its got a little demon-face thing going on... I just kept drawing the rest for the heck of it. I'm only worried that these ideas won't be unique enough. Should I push the design farther?

CRITIQUE AS YOU WOULD BE CRITIQUED
THE ABOVE LINK IS ALL YOU NEED
http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=200044 <- Sketchbook - filled with unhappy things.
HO MY....did anyone say freakin awsome topic O_O? ho w8 that was me....
FREAKIN AWSOME TOPIC
wips on thier way ^_^
well heres my idea and i just gotta say that DAMN this is an exciting subject ^(^ _ ^)^
these are called the collectors ,these demonic beings live in hell (well where else can they live at >_>) and collect wondering souls.
now about the thing:
*decided to go black and white first to get the details done quickly so its not that red and hot atm
* still havent decided about how those tentacles at the buttom ends but theyre supposed to be used as both legs and well...tentacles ^ , ^.
*lots of work to be done here so i hope ill finish it on time
C&C are more then welcomed so cmon ppl start stoping those crits in here ^(^ _ ^)^
and if i forgot to mention.....this topic ROCKS !aham *cough cough* back to work....
Well, I am thinking about making it like a moving mountain that spews lava everywhere. That being said, I am thinking about using turtle, lizard, giant, mountain and lava elements.
But I wanted to see what thumbnails you guys like, so here.
(these are all really rough)
I am leaning towards 2,5 and 13.
My first post on ConceptArt.org! When I saw these contests I just had to participate! So here is my first sketch for the contest, let me know what you think! It is based off a Pompeii worm.
Cool topic indeed!
Sperling: That's an interesting technique for finding forms. I'd say the fish route is definitely original, but the guy in the center probably has the most potential. As for the design, push it! Push it hard till it almost falls over, then you'll have a great design.
acb: Looks like it's gonna be awesome. No crit yet.
Duman: First one and 4th row far left would be my choice.
Jatari: Welcome. Great start!
WIP....Sorry about the quality, Painter never saves good Jpegs.
Fairly happy with this direction... ><
must finish! .. .hmmm coffee
[CENTER]Available for Freelance!
acb interesting monster, looks wicked!
Duman nice thumbs, I like the fat-slim lizards you have close to the bottom.
Jatari, Welcome to COW, where twisted imagination is put on paper looks like a hot wurm creature, cool!
scourge Love the wip man, reminds me of Aliens though..with a new twist i suppose
ActsOfBob lovely first post! colors, mood, and the creature looks great! keep it up.
did some doodling, My mind keeps resetting back to a behemoth-like bull so I might just go in that direction. Gonna rush it since workload kinda weighing me down.
Dwinbotp: Thanks for the input dude. Always appreciated! Loving your ideas as well. It was looking a little too alienesque so I decided to beef it up a bit.
Man, this really is a fun topic.
Wip2....Maybe final...We'll see.
Great WIPS all around guys!
sperling- Nice! Keep going!
acb- nice start! Liking the silhouette you got going!
Duman- I like the first from the bottom
JAtari- Welcom and nice sketch! Would like to see more soon!
Scorge- Yeah the second attempt is better! Diggin' it~!
Dwintbop- You're awesome! Even if you rush it, it'll be wicked!
phoenicorn- Cool! Let's see more, huh!?
Alright, here's mine... C&C welcome! May add more hands...
Wow, dwinbotp, I have got to learn how to do that!
And on the first two days.
You overachiever you.
Here is a quick sketch update. I narrowed it down to three designs that I like.
All the things on their backs shoot lava, in case you were wondering.

This is my first option for now (any comments)
If you have time, please look at my sketchbook and tell me what you think, Thanks
WIP. Here's what I have so far. Any suggestions appreciated.
Sup all?! This is my first time on COW. I did all these sketches last night and today and I'm a little stuck picking one. I like 4/6 (they're pretty much the same thing), 5 and 3). I went to art school so I can handle a good critique! Thanks everyone! This should be loads of fun.
wow @_@ cool crits everyone
sperling- well i think that its an interesting idea but if yure uncertain about those sketches then i think you should try sketching out some more untill youd find something you like
duman - that was just the idea i had on my mind at first looking forward to see how yull develope it
jatari- welcome to the site and i hope yull enjoy here thats a nice start for now no crits ^_^
scorge-thx alot and cool crit i see it started wrekching some doom around
actsofbob-thats a cool pallete choice and i rly rly like the head @_@ looking forward for updates
dwinbotp-thx man on your first doodles i really liked that top left one with the cool looking red at the bottum of hes head and after seeing the final i gotta say awsome job ^_^
ImaGEEnation- thx alot thats an interesting looking crit w8ing to see some more
phoenicorn -nice start looking for more updates
Cy-AN -thats a cool looking one and it looks really interesting with all of those shapes ^_^ looking forward for updates
Bonedaddycash-its a nice start so im w8ing for more of it
Bradford A Rigby-i really like 1 and 3 ,those reallty looks demonic and doomlike
updates coming soon
Bradford. For me it's hands down # 5. I think it's got a bit of a Lovecraftian feel to it.
Bonedaddy - Awesome sketch! I really like the head. I would like to see some natural plated spikey armor and large shoulders. Just to see what it would look like. All in all great concept!
Thanks, I was toying with adding the spikey armor. I think I'll go for it.
Bradford A Rigby: I actually like the first one a lot. Like a magma demon or something like that. The fact that it floats is creepy.
Bonedaddycash: I like your creature. Especially the blade like face. Have you thought about a tail?
ActsOfBob: You creature is looking really cool, especially the face. It looks truly demonic. Im not sure about the blade feet, however. I might try a few more variants of the feet, or maybe just a few more blade designs.
ImaGEEnation: I like the head and pose of your creature, but I am having some trouble reading the rest of the figure.
