Please feel free to post some ideas for the COW-activity, which will start very soon! The activity is about CREATURES ONLY!!!
here is the thread for further infos:
The topics should not be too specific and give the artist enough space to implement new and fresh ideas...
good example: lava eating creature that lives in volcanic craters
bad example: alien redesign with fur and 3 eyes
stupid examples, but you got the point...
I will pick randomly topics from this list, unless the suggestions don't fit in the above criterias...
enough said, go!

Life on Titan (that our cameras missed!)
Beast of burden
Giant from the forest
The garbage eater
Cave dwelling mammal
HAHAHA....yeah! Anal parasite....one of the best topics yet on ca.org...great, Matt!!!
Your topics aren't vague at all....exactly the right balance between specification and space for creativity!!!
keep em coming folks!
"If the readers of conceptart.org were granted god powers and one day all came upon a planet, with climates similar to our own, on which they each decided they would plant their own species to develop it's own culture, nation and eventually inherit the planet for themselves, your would-be dominant species would be:"
what about a computer virus, in visual form
or a parasite that lives in the water cooling systems of computers
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)
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
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- Carnivorous fungi
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

Ancestors (Chose two previous COW winners, and determine a common ancestor they both evolved from - go back as far as needed)
Generalized (Like the first rodents which spawned bats, whales, and horses - something unique which is bound to change and spread into every niche)
Environmental Transistion (A water species evolved to deal with a drought, a herd species evolved to deal with an agressivly expanding forest, herbivores begetting a carnivore)
Motherly Love (Reproductive forms not using traditional eggs or live birth)
Metamorphosis (undergoes change from infancy to adulthood)
Sensation (Senses the environment with something other than sight, smell, sound, etc)
Good Eats (Domesticated creature raised for food)
Migration (Creature designed to travel long distances)
Tethered (Never moved more than a few feet from it's birthplace)
Tool Inspiration (Beavers make dams, birds weave nests, paper wasps make hives. What natural activity of your creature gives its sentient neightbors an idea for a new technology?)
The singing creature
^keep me going by visiting my sketchbook^
Wow this list is getting long. Too long to remember what's been said and what hasn't. I thought of a few I wouldn't mind doing. Not sure if they've been mentioned or not. How about:
Rock creature (think of all the different rock formations there are)
Lava or Magma creature (something that lives far below the Earth's crust)
Splitting Creature (a creature that splits into two non-identical creatures when it reaches adulthood. basically a spin off of Jaleho's motherly love)
Extremely Dorky Ideas:
Hot Chick Machine Creatures (Still not humanoid, but must resemble females in someway: facial features, eyelashes, metal boobies, etc.)
Cutest Creatures in the Existence of Time (Soooo cute, they'll threaten your sexuality!)
Meanest Insect-Like Creatures (Creatures with exoskeletons!)
Mutant Mistakes (When science went wrong on experiments)
Hooves and Horns (Badass herbivores)
Wolf in Sheep's clothing...........not literal, but a creature which uses this concept.......
How about a creature used as a weapon??
Just some more ideas. Haven’t read the entire thread so if some of these ideas were already suggested, just ignore ‘em.
- Organic communication device
- Animals doomed for extention (i.e. "The Bubble Wrap Shelled Tortise of North America.") Never had a chance.
- Grave digger for deceased mythological creatures
- Animal mascots from alien worlds
- Uncredited creatures that changed history
* And thanks for putting all your time and energy into this Fozzy! It's a great exercise and hope it becomes a mainstay of CA.

flourescent forest or space creature
Creature used as a writing tool
What humans would look like after 120 million more years of evolution
Living clothing or furnature
