SUNDAY, JULY 30th
The way the deadline works: if deadline is on a Sunday and your image is posted on that Sunday 23:59 your local time it's a good entry.
In fact - as long there is Sunday somewhere on the planet your entry is ok. I will make the poll sometimes Monday afternoon my time (GMT +2) yet i'll have a look at the last entries.
So.. we're in the process of doing a horror movie. We need the bad monster.
Make your own horror movie cyan monster.
Scriptwritters are still in doubt - it's a failed experiment, it's been created by .. well.. NDA issues... the main ideea is.. that .. it's color is...CYAN.
Also - it is NOT a species... it's one sick monster... can have anything in it... just to scare the audience.
We're looking for your proposals.
1 = Scary Monster
2 = Cyan
3 = Not a species
Make sure your picture contains these - you will receive 3 VOTES for each topic covered.
5 extra votes will be offered for the description.

Here is the quick sketch...just to get the idea down, not 100% sure I'll finish - it's a decision between practice and CHoW basically. We'll see (very rough sketch...and yes, I know I 'pet the line' lol - bad habit I need to break) -
(hosted at Imageshack)
Description Keywords: Mutated human, failed experiment to create 'perfect soldier' - able to assimilate weapons into body. (complete description not written). It's drawn to be in a 'smokey room'.

I think it means that it shouldn't make sense as a creature with an ecology and evolved traits, it should just be an all-out assault on decency. A mutated mess. That's what I'm thinking at least.

sadly one hour was not enough for this, but, there goes my lunchbreack
yeah, and a short "original" story: this dude, his name was Albert, he was some scientist of sorts, he discovered this magical stone, the legend said that if you plant the stone in your head, you`ll have enourmous powers, all the beautiful women will love you and you can take over the world! Well, the legend was wrong, and now his name is Albert the Cyan ZombieMutantSomething...

This is a cool idea. I think I might enter this one. I think "not a species" means like not a herd of creatures, like a herd of deer. A species means there are more of them and they reproduce and have a place in the world. This is a monster, unique, think like a creature from Resident Evil.
In the year 2056 a small group of genetic engineers estranged from the larger community of ethical scientists gathered and sought to solve the worlds problems of overpopulation and global warming. Their unconventional solution? Make man capable of living under the sea. Their bizarre experiments culminated in a project they called X90, a being of supreme intellect, physical stamina and of course the ability to breathe in saltwater. But the experiment of course went horribly wrong, as X90's psychological make-up was entirely sociopathic. He knew he was a freak, he knew he was unnatural and now he uses genetically designed superiority to hunt the world for the scientists that created and abandoned him in their Antarctic laboratories. X90 wont stop until he has every one of their heads collected together in his underwater lair.

ooon this one gives me a good idea. I'm in.
"Her mistake had been in telling the warden that it was his child before anyone else knew she was pregnant. His fear for his job and reputation did the rest. The prison matrons and doctor were corrupt and quite willing to help cover up any evidence that she was with child and prevent a stay of execution. Then the bastard forged a request for her to be put to death in the gas chamber in her name.
Hate seethed on both sides of the glass as she was strapped in to the chair. As the pain washed through her from her lungs, and her vision went to black something happened. Something twisted by all that hate woke up inside her and started reaching out to take revenge"
Medium undead. Amalgam of the bodies and life essences of the executed mother and child combined with hatred entities present at time of death. Creature composed of moving, fully articulate hydrogen cyanide in both liguid and gas state. Immune to physical attack. Prefers to kill by strangulation with semisolid tendrils but mere proximity is quickly lethal as well due to inhalation of cyanide vapor. Appears motivated by desire to kill prison staff, especially it's "father" the warden. As usual for monsters, Teenagers in the vicinity are targets-of-opportunity. Note: Unlike most b-grade monstrous killing machines, the Breathtaker has no particular attraction to killing those engaged in promiscuous sex, and in fact consideres it rude to interrept such acts. (Afterwards they're fair game )

Completely re-did mine, FINAL.
There is little known about the x90, some say he is the Devil himself, others believe he was created in a lab. Whatever It is, and where ever it came from, it doesnt care if you know or understand it, its gonna Rip you to shreds.

This being uses heat sensing to find its victims because it has no eyes. It will detect the warmth of the body, pounce on it, leaping a long distance with its powerful legs and then with with his weapon(a prehistoric bone) it continues to bash the victim to a bloody pulp which them he consumes, slicing through the flesh with razor sharp teeth, and crunching through bones with powerful jaws, not letting a drop of blood go to waste.

I might have time to jump in on this one but I cant be sure. if you noticed my avatar change you see what takes up another fair amount of my time. Is the fact that we are not going for a species what differentiates it from the COW?
I'm kind of new to all of this, but this looks like fun and good practice, I'll try it
Yea, basically we're making a unique character instead of a generic monster.Originally Posted by GratefulDread
Dr. Fontana kept the other scientists completely in the dark. Richards worked on the DNA manipulation, Ellis was on data entry, but only Fontana had the keys to it all. The last day of the project, Fontana pronounced the work done and promised to unveil their creation the next morning. When the scientists returned at the promised hour, the lab had been smashed to pieces, not a single beaker nor data file left. The body of Dr. Fontana was found in a puddle of cyan-colored liquid, a hollow, dehydrated husk in a lab coat, clutching a vial labelled "X90".
In the coming weeks after the lab disaster was hastily covered up and the various doctors relocated to the ends of the earth, reports began filtering in to various police stations and news media outlets. Something was loose in St. Haven, something that could not be seen until it was too late, something that left the dehydrated husks of its victims behind...
"The X90" - A solitary creation of three NDA scientists. Intelligent, nimble, mutated to be strong and merciless. Its primary "habitat" is water, using its "natural" cyan coloring to blend in. Its movements sound like the gentle lapping of water against the side of a pool, slosh... slosh... sploosh. It has six appendages. Two are used for forward/backward propulsion and are made to grip with unrepentant strength as it slides itself along. Two others are used primarily for grappling with prey, holding the victim steady so that its final two, smaller appendages can suction to the victim and deprive him of his bodily fluids. The X90 has learned that animals do not have the dihydrous oxide quantity that is required to keep it alive, thus it preys almost solely on humans. Likewise, it cannot use its suction appendages to drain water from pools (not to mention the chemical problems!) or other bodies of water as it cannot maintain the proper grip.

I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way...
not to mention:Originally Posted by cognition.sb
- it can be humanoid
- it can be an existing yet mutated creature
- you can use... accesories... weapons, clothing, tech stuff
- it can have mechanical parts.. or whatever... it can transform... blah blah..
done ! >____<. I'm going with good old fashioned 90's kitsch.
In the year 2040, genetic research is breaking new grounds. Artificial insemination is now common place and a young couple, Barbara and George Smith have decided (for some godforsaken reason) that they’d like to have quintuplets. So, they go where all people go when they want to have a baby ; GenTech. Here, you can choose the weight, size and eye color of your child for a mere $900.
Barbara and George ordered two girls and three boys, all with cyan eyes and eagerly awaited the day nine months later when their children would be born. The day came, only to their horror instead of five beautiful babies a quivering, deformed mass made it’s way into the world. Horrified by the atrocity they donated it to GenTech for research purposes.
Life went on and the world moved on. Twenty one years later, GenTech decided that they had gathered as much information on ‘the anomaly’ as they possibly could. So they finally decided to euthanize it. However, it escaped as is now trying to find the people that brought it into this world and make them suffer like it suffers.

I'm pretty new to these forums on CA, but I thought that these community activities look like fun
Pencil sketch for now I'm afraid >>> not 100% sure on what to put in its belly yet...

It was said strange creatures inhabited the swamps. The people of the nearby village suspected that these creatures took
people that drowned and transformed them into the living dead of the swamp. They were known as "the unknown". Some
that survived the encounter with the unknown spoke of "A spider-like ghostly image rising from the swamp, Its skin blue,
cyan even, transparent. Their limbs were protruded with long spikes, or sticks which made them very mobile in the sludge.
Their image was truely frightening!"
The swamp has been closed for public since a series of accidents, but people often speak of the strange silhouettes moving
in unsettling jerky movements over the swamp and of their high pitches howles that sound through the night.
