well i think im done...still aint happy with the pic overall...dunno what to do to give it that ooomph effect....maybe render the creature in a different pose with background..
ive also added the different stages of the drawing...
but since i suck at digital painting complicated things..i think im just gon leave it at this..
any suggestions on how to give this the oooomph effect..?
Almost there. Still not happy with some things, trying to sort them out. Shading on the right leg is annoying me most of all.
@Verehin: If you ask me, and I'm sure you wont, I would say that the first project was a way better. Just my opinion
This is my first time in COW and tell me witch of this is better in your opinion. I think that the first one but I heard that the second one is better.
Oh I know I dont have a chance for good place but maby one vote I just want to share my ideas
I also thought of Cloverfield monster... my problem with this is that it is almost too ChOW. All things I can imagine making that sound will be disqualified as characters rather than creatures.
I guess I'll monitor for a bit, maybe something will come
This is getting some really nice results so far. I can't lie, I'm shy to stick my scribbles up here, but here I go anyways :3
Here's mine so far.
I might have made it look a little too intelligent, but meh. I like what I have so far for the most part, but I'm gonna work on making it seem bigger. I made the body too short for one thing >.<
Small update. Thought it wasn't menacing enough, so I gave it creepy teeth and weird eyes. It might be a little too dark so I gotta start giving it some color and definition now.

update: crits welcome, thanks.
My First C.O.W. with THE SOUND
"HORNED CROWNED KING CROG"
They're making sound with a hollow horn on his head which connect to it nostral system.The skin is makin from a celluloid peptine like a bark of tree so it's always look like it got a armor of tree. on their joint there're a thick muscle so that 're no their weak point.
The Ancient Aboriginist always use their horn skull on a myhtical ceremony, it's the symbol of the conquerer... symbol of "THE KING"
PS. I think i've some problems with it's back legs. Please not hestitate to crit, i love all crits

VEHERIN : i like your creature.it's very enormous and gigantic.
TimM : your fish-like creature is interesting, at first i start with fish-creatur idea too, bu i can't go on. lol. yours is amazing.
ok i started sketching mine.
i think i'm done with this one.
your work is ..., flat perhaps?? I dunno, i know u do all the highlighs n shadow an all but i think the "shall " parts doesnot show the shape much, its like individual rock stick around ... i donnu how to say it, sorry...
i got a creature design with 10 legs, 4 smaller on the head, and 6 "usual" on the body, guess idead soes has it coincident, but i think u lack a little in confident??, perhaps ur just humble, but always aim high. by the way, the lower one looks more lifely.
here is a WIP ive just been working on, basic shap sorted, just fleshing the rest out. I want a good sense of mass...I think ive got tochange some shadow under the belly...looking kinda of off
hey all, freaking awesome stuff going on in here so i wanted to participate and have fun too,
listening to the sound file it was like a heavy creature, so I did an elephant/ pig/ bull type creature used for transport and cavalry charges,,, ahhh I think I might have to do another one, i have something else in my mind, a much bigger and more aggressive creature
is it ok if i change my mind and choose a different creature as my final?
Cool entries so far!
Here's mine w.i.p. Thought of a big ancient cow/ox combined with the soundsystem of a parasaurolophus
kinonato: your shape exploration is wonderfull >
I am thinking of another concept - it's a guardian of another realm. It stands in the way, but doesn't prevent to pass. It does frightfull sounds with mouth and stomping with his huge front legs on the ground. Only those who are not affraid can pass.
Here is a rendered WIP, hopefully I have time in between work to finish this off, well it's nearly 1 in the morning and I got work tomorrow.....issues I'm still have with it would be main leg, far hind leg and the more I look at it I feel its kinda plain as far as the idea goes, but been great for learning texturing...so we will see.
Here is my wip, still needs lots of work.
Really interesting thread. Loved the uploaded sound file!
I noodled around for a bit, I don't think I really hit the mark with the kind of creature, but I thought I could hear wings beating at one point.
I don't know if I'll finish it, but I thought I'd post anyway..
ahchu is sexy
the progress of my entry... actually just the studies, but now that i am happy with the design i can start with the composition and painting.
Hope I can make the deadline!!!
very nice entries everyone

ok heres my wip, well it's rather neare end now, nope to refine the picture
Heres my wips. these are photographs of my monitor since vista dosnt like painter 8 and i cant save in jpg format
My Last Wip.
" Horn Crown King Croc "
Lann: man ure creature is looking good but i think one of the rules for COW is that you can't have any clothing, ornaments etc...better check up on that....but ure creature is looking pretty good..gives a nice sense of bulk..
AhChu: man i like how ur creature is coming..the texture and the mood...lookin real good..yea all you have to do the texture at the bottom of the legs...
So I'm a first time participant here. Thought I'd just post my sketches to start out.
These are thumbnails that range in size from a half inch to 2 inches square. I'm going with the one circled in red, and subsequent studies to either side of it.
"Can't" is a coward too lazy to try.
here is where I am going so far, I want to add something else to it to really make it unique, not sure what yet. Maybe it will just come down to the colors and pattern.
started with random shapes, tried to make an interesting arrangement that wasnt too over the top and just go from there. hope to finish by tonight, please feel free to comment. thanks!
My sound creature! Nice entries so far!
I keep focus on the consequences of its groan
