Arthur 'Two Sheds'
Grandmassa Mr. Spect
tschahri- thx alot for your crit ^_^ i know about all of those issues but as i said in my posting i didnt had alot of time to invest in it so i didnt look up on all of the details but i will (hopefully ^_^ ) next time thx again
izer- thx for your crit ^_^ well i kinda knew i had to combine a panda with something (cuz love pandas ^_^) so just thought on this weird combo but near the "end" phaze of this drawing i realized that i took care of the design and animals but didnt took care of the comical part at all so im happy that at least the very combination was abit comical ^_^
Thanks guys! i need to quickly vote for ssomeone too! and damn i feel so bad i still havent done one of those lists with responses to everyone's work
It was difficult to choose who to vote for. I ended up picking Arthur 'Two Sheds'. It made me giggle, and the expression on the dog is great.
PEEYOUUUUU!!! LOL! Even though it's sickening in a Cow way Blobs! You, got it man. Nice rendering of a total disgusting magically produced menace befitting the title comical chimera. Might I say, I parry with the double ply -Charmin Shield. Nice entries all.
Voted Emerging, looks best, plus good idea.
Love it's expression.
Don't give up though! Personally I've stepped back into just commenting and voting for the last few months and it is a nice community, plus I'm hoping being able to work out what doesn't appeal to me about some of the awesome artists' pics will help me improve my own.
I had to vote for blobs. It is awesome At first I admire his original idea with pigbottomheaded chimera. The second thing I love is his loose style in the rear part of the creature. Bravo
Gumish I can see this one in a Sunday paper comic strip
I like it, although I would've preferred to have seen you mix up the body parts more.. but yep, it goes with your concept, so all good
Grue There are some very subtle brush marks and colours in this, I like that alot. Next time round I'd like to see more definition of the body.
Clochette Love it, love your style, I've nothing to crit, you would've been my second vote
Emerging FTW, excellent concept and great expression! You're my winner!
s.a.r Nice drawing, good to see some solid anatomy. But this guy doesn't look very fearsome as in your idea.
Benu I love the lighting on this Benu. I can't wait to see your next cow as your painting looks to be working nicely. I'd watch how you place your animal parts together, I know it's not cut and pasted, but it does look it in places, the bat-snail head in particular.. good stuff!
tschahri Love it, subtle, great shapes, I can see this living in the real world, t'is a beauty
Ghoulio Haha, excellent!!
Melis LOL, love the idea, I'm not sure the image does the description credit though. I would love to see some texture on the skin/flesh and a greater tonal range. Add little details (something I keep forgetting to do) to make it more interesting.. tschahri's is a great example of textures and markings.
Jack Nugget Looks like something out of Mario!
More detail and observing of anatomy needed I reckon.
Wazbot Hehehe, very cool, I'm not overly keen on the scale texture, but it does work.. so I'll shut my mouth now
sojujoe Very comical and nice idea. I was confused the first time that I saw this. The abdomen of the main creature looked like a cave in the background. I think you could do with more rendering on this.
acb I like the lighting and the fun on the front leg and head, but the neck area looks very flat to me.
Faelic I love the style and rendering of his head, I'm not sure that quality of rendering or design was followed through with his body though.
Marsch There's a lovely flow to this pose! But where is the lighting and shadows from the water? He looks to me like he's falling in air rather than swimming.
Sketchius I'm surprised you haven't got more votes! Joint second for me
NakedZergling Very cool, push the painting for the next cow!
Blonde_Bomber That's one nasty beast
Doomsquid Cool viewing angle, and nicely coloured giraffe legs!
Michael_Morisse I just love those loose feathers and the fish nest, another joint second.. brilliant
Izer Cool stuff Izer, very smooth painting, almost airbrushy.
SephyCloNo15 Excellent head and eyes, more rendering next time please!
Crowsrock Excellent stuff!
Darknight I think you've gone overboard with the textured brushes on this one and it doesn't look finished to me. I'd like to see you nail your creature at the drawing phase before starting the paint.
Arthur_'Two_Sheds' Another winner, I love your colour and light.. lots to learn from this, another joint second for me.
Arteater He's in the water! I like it, although watch your forms, his head is looking very thin. The lower and right part of his body is excellent!
Mxlplxn Nice work, could do with more rendering I think.
Blackcherry Good combination, good anatomy, good
Grandmassa Mr. Spect. Nice idea, nice boobies
Good face, although it does look like a filtered photo to me, not saying it is though. Interesting use of textures!
ecochran Cool.. I can here him going 'choo choo!' I really like it, but more rendering (jeez I'm repeating myself!)
Jushra Oh yeah. looking good, again I would've loved to have seen you work into this guy a bit more, he has lots of potential.
vorp Haha, excellent, cool tail feathers and wormy parts .. more finish next time please!
volscalkur Hehehe, I laughed when I read and saw this. Very good
dadoalmedia Hehe, excellent brush work and lighting!
Phew I'm knackered.. and thanks to everyone who has voted for me
Wish I could give more than one vote, but as I can't my vote went to:
blobs: I loved this, such a crazy concept with a great description to go with it! Made me laugh
-------This was my first COW, seems like it was for quite a few people. Thanks to everyone who’s commented on my work, it's nice to get feedback! Great entries everyone!
Gumish: Funny concept, which will likely result in self destruction, lol!
grue: Nice design. I think you captured the different textures of the animals well. I like the fur.
Clochette: Simple but effective design. I like the colours.
emerging: This one is so cute, the chosen animals have been combined together well and the expression is great! I wanted to vote for this one too.
benu: An ugly creature but well put together and coloured. I really like the snail element, makes it very interesting particularly the head.
tschahri: I this could have been better with some colour but aside from that I really like the design!
ghoulio: I don't think the background sets the creature off well which I think lets the design down a little because the creature is nicely drawn and coloured.
Melis: A strange and weird design. Like the expression. Maybe the pose could have been slightly different so the right front leg wasn't partly obscured?
Jack Nugget: I like his grin. I think the different body textures could be expressed better.
Wazbot: This is cool, I like the combination of animals. Good highlights on the body.
sojujoe: I like the additional baby versions with your design. Could have had a longer creature description.
faelic: Interesting design. It has a nice watercolour and ink feel to it.
Marsch: Like the pose and expression, looks like he's in a whirlpool and needs help hehe. I particulalrly like the face.
sketchius: Great Design! I really like the detail on the creature. I also like the background, it's simple but you've portrayed the clouds and trees really well. I think the face is a bit too dark, makes it hard to see the features clearly. Also I think it would look better if you captures all the creature in the frame rather than chopping half of the left wing.
NakedZergling: Well drawn design. I really like the lizard element, the scales are great!
Michael Morisse: This is great, I love the chicken legs! I also love the fur and feathers you've
captured them well.
Izer: Interesting combination. I really like the turtle head/tail, it has good detail.
Crowsrock: Like the charging expression on the mouse. Good detail on the legs.
darknight: A bit hard to make out due to the style of colouring. Could have more defined linework or a clearer style of colouring to set the design off more effectively.
Arthur 'Two Sheds': I look at this and I expect the creature to start fighting, lol, not sure why! Love the colours, expression and combination of creatures. This also would have got my vote if I had more than one.
Arteater: Great design. I like the colouring, particularly the body texture.
Grandmassa Mr. Spect: A colourful design. I like the lady bird idea. Some sections may be a bit 'busy'
Jushra: Nice colours and 'doggy' expression with the tongue hanging out.
vorp: A fun design. Love the expression on the worm. I like the peacock tail and the butterflies too.
dadoalmedia: A very funny looking creature, I really like the pose and colouring. Not sure about the background.
I'm voting for tschahri. I like how original it looks and also how you played around with proportions. nice work!
also, thanks to tschahri, Izer and blobs for your comments on my chimera. I will definately keep what you guys said in mind, and also, i'll spend some more time on future entries.
i had a question. isnt winner's work supposed to become a thumbnail for the cow that person won?
