And to start.. i'll give you a glimpse of what's happening in the Weekly Activities.
Last week winners are:Topic: Heart Harvester
COW (Creature Of the Week)
Concept: The Heart Harvester is a scavenger...From high above, the raptor like creature uses its keen sense of smell for blood to locate its favorite meal, the heart. The bird will fly to the kill screaching loudly and posturing with its plummage to scare off any predators around the area...It works swiftly by puncturing the rib cage with its sharp beak and serrated tip thrusting and sawing upwards through bone and cartilage...It then snips the heart from its chamber and collects it in its expanding gullet, much like a pelican...This way it can store multiple meals for its young and for the future.
CHOW (Character Of the Week)Topic: Chief Librarian of the Lost Sea Scrolls
The Chief Librarian was once a lord of Atlantis. Foreseeing the city’s demise he gathered the most sacred and powerful texts and took them to a place where no mortal could find them. He now lives in solitude, the sole guardian of the secrets that allow one to control the most powerful forces in the oceans.
EOW (Environment Of the Week)Topic: Rapunzels tower
The Asteroid Dark Ages and the Iconoclastic Knight
When the descendents of the human population emerged from their concrete caves into the sickly light of day, in the middle of the twentieth-third century, they inherited only a wasteland. The rolling hills of what was once Germania were burned with long stripes of esterilized black terrain, like the back of an enormous tiger, pierced here and there by twisted spears of steel that once supported imposing skyscrapers. The red eye of the sun, barely open like awakening from a hundred-year hangover, lazily gazed at the survivors like saying: "What are you still doing here?"
Having spent the last generations locked in crowded bunkers, forcibly having to swallow each other’s idiosyncracies like some kind of extended group therapy, we could not stand to look at our faces anymore. each one of us went their own way, without even saying a word. Like a precariously glued porcelain, humanity broke in familiar pieces. Eventually, new versions of old kingdoms emerged from the rubble, rekindling old customs and rivalries. I myself commited many unspeakable acts in the name of imaginary loyalties to things like “God” and “Country”. deeply ashamed, I exiled myself of the eyes of my fellow men.
30 years later, I am still roaming the land. Tired of fighting with my neighbors, I became a kingless knight; my domain extending from the acid river in the south all the way to the foot of der Schwarzwald. This region was scarred deeply by the Armaggedon, craters like wounds wherever you go. The "Asteroid Dark Ages" they say. In some points, the cuts are so deep that unreal things are surfacing from the Depths of the Earth. Demons, Deities and Fairy Tales of the old times, struggling to survive like all of us. I met many of them in my wanderings.
Even yesterday, I met "Blue Radish Girl", or "Rapunzel" in the old language. I kid you not. Looking for food in the mountains, I found an old estate where the only surviving building was a tower with no doors. Everyone knows the old story... Beautiful braids thrown down the window to allow one to reach the princess. But the prince is long dead, and the witch is loose in the world; she could not care less about her captive.
People say your hair keeps growing even after you are dead. Rapunzel’s prodigious braids not only never stopped growing from her dead scalp in centuries, but took over the entire estate, strangling the contructions around it like some poisonous vine. Black crows larger than eagles violently fought for the disarranged locks, competing for the best strands to build their nests. I've seen those birds before. They belonged to Odin, aging bastard god and self-proclameid monarch of the north lands. Like spoiled brats, the crows invaded people’s farms, stole animals and caused trouble. Killing one of the crows was to incur Odin’s anger.
Nevertheless, They were fat, and probably delicious, And I had a couple of Mistletoe arrows just in case of those troublesome Teutonic Gods caused me any grief. I quickly dispatched the largest of the birds, and the rest flew away. I knew I would pay for that, but I didn’t care. The old stories were as real as you and me, and nothing was sacred anymore in this new world.
As I loaded the carcass in my horse I looked back, and could not help but smile... For the first time in a long while I felt like a real Knight, defending a Princess (albeit a dead one) from Evil. It was dawn, and the silhouette of the tower divided clearly night and day, dark and light, good and bad. I bowed down and rode into the rising sun.
3CH (Random Topic Of The Week)Topic: A thundering zombie bombs a delivery dude (in black and white).
It was late, my shift ended on the next drop off, I was pissed off and Dana was waiting for me.
Everyone knew the stories, everyone had their own version - nobody believed them....but then nobody used The Route 1 Approach Road after dark either.
It was foot down the whole way - I saw something in the rear view - second glance it was gone ΦΦ- then out the passenger side, there he was, the booming sound of his engine equaled only by his devilish laugh. He was looking at me like he was waiting for something. Then I saw what he had in his hand.....

Ok.. we're back.
I had to swing around the east europe countries agian hence the delay in the update.
Let's see what else is new in the Weekly Activities Corner.
Last week winners are:Topic: Lava Swimer
COW (Creature Of the Week)
Concept: "Nothing should survive in such high temperature environment, however the internal structure of this mystic beast is beyond the understanding of men. While all creature must consume food to create energy to survive, the beast feeds on perhaps the purest form of energy, heat. Similar to plants, which require sunshine and water, in a mythical world, the closest thing that is a combination of the sun and water, would perhaps be lava. It's internal organs, if they can even be called organs, transform the heat into energy to "power" up this unique creature. The Lava swimmer is a slow moving beast, and swims as if it has lost its soul. Where did it come from, why did it choose to exist in such lonely world where no other lifeform exist... that's a story for another time..."
CHOW (Character Of the Week)Topic: Aztec Space Traveller
Intelligent life forms have been visiting our planet for thousands of years. They created a giant landing strip in the Nazca desert. They have been celebrated as statues and other relics created by many civilizations in Central America.
Design a space traveller (humanoid or otherwise) wearing a costume influenced by Aztec or other similar cultures.
Runner up xgabo with one vote difference:
EOW (Environment Of the Week)Topic: The Library of the Lost SeaScrolls
[B]An expedition to the Antarctic was made in an attempt to recover the lost scrolls from the advanced civilization which was thought to be destroyed by the angry Gods. A civilization that had documented all of it's technological advances onto these scrolls. Once discovered, the crew placed all the scrolls inside empty wine bottles to prevent any further damage to the already aging scrolls. Along the way back, pirates which had tailed the expedition laid in ambush waiting to attack.
The expedition's crew not wanting the lost technology to fall in the wrong hands decided they must rid the ship of all knowledge of the scrolls. All the wine bottles which held the precious scrolls were tossed into the ocean. Most ended up in the bottom of the ocean to be completely forgotten. However, there were still some that were left floating, scattered along the water's surface. These were the bottles which could not be uncorked in last moments remaining. These corked bottles protecting the precious secrets of the scrolls inside may still yet be left to be found.
The remaining library of the lost sea scrolls.
3CH (Random Topic Of The Week)Topic: Raptor, nerd, cellar
This has NOT been Wilbur Allen's day.
The morning began like every other morning-
He got to school, was beaten up by Tommy Lupertaze at lunch time, spilled his soda
On Lorain DeMarko, got beaten up by her boyfriend (Tommy Lupertaze), blew up the science lab (spilled his soda on the test tubes. again. Got beaten up by Tommy Lupertaze. Again.) and then failed the afternoon P.T. exam. After the 15:00 O'clock beating by Bobby Aguardo (and his pal Tommy Lupertaze) he went home, just in time to find his twin brother, Billy, eating one of the neighborhood kids ("…hey, he dared me. Thought I was you, the poor sap. And you…you big pussy…this is all your fault, ya know. You're a raptor, dude, start acting like one! I mean for the love of…").
After getting beaten up by the police officer (sergeant Henry, Sergeant Henry Lupertaze) mistaking him for Billy (who took off in Wilbur's "Gremlin"), he was incarcerated. His father disowned him saying he was never been so embarrassed in his life ("…yes we're raptors, but… eating little Timmy? I will never be able to show my face `round the office again …dear god, you're an idiot Wilbur, I mean for the love of…."),
And come night time Wilbur got to meet his cellar mate.
This has NOT been Wilbur's day.

So... who's been in the FINE ARTS area lately?
I'm sure that some things can help you with your work even if you don't aim for a fine arts career.
Have a little look on this thread that Idiot Apathy started a looong time ago yet it still has it's power and magic.
so.. go and try your hand at some of the exercises:
Moving on with some other past entries in that Fine Arts Area... we find our top of the page, Marc Taro in "the life painting thread"
he's back into traditionals - see his sketchbook - he loves it and we love it.
and even lower on the page Stephen is presenting a painting done in Florence - now.. that's a sort of a teaser for theWorkshop if you ask me.Originally Posted by marc_taro
On another note, one of the new users on conceptart (registerd this march) has a nice topic in the Fine Arts area.
We lost another 3D animator to the fine arts side
Check out DecktillDawn's stuff here
Time for the foto round up.
Not so many this time - maybe next week?
Racoon with a cigar
Uh.. in case you haven't noticed - Pete Konig has a DVD to offer.
Now.. i will not use this space to advertise things but i'm a fan of the Konig teddy bear - i haven't met a guy who can Draw, Sculp, Model (CG) and Animate as Pete is. I had the pelasure to watch him work at some workshops (Austin, SF Jan. Montral) and i did missed his presence at Insomania.
Haven't got the DVD yet - but as soon as i get my hands on it - expect some pics with the clay mess from my appartment. Btw - do you know any cleaning service around Sofia ?

aaaahoooy - it's time for an update - right?
sory for the big delay - i've been bouncing again half of the planet - got to SF and bought myself some CHIKCS DRAW CHICKS CALENDARS only to forget them there
I wanted one to note all the birthdays there and some to make presents as they are really nice. well... back to Bucharest - next week i'll be in Paris for 2 days then Bulgaria then.. i'll let you know.
Back to our business... it's time to gather the beste COW's out there.
Back at COW #81 - Living Trap
cannibalcandy does it again.
The Mana Prison is not so much a creature, but more of a construct. At best it can be described as a very powerful magical flying frog. It is one of many different types of homunculi that are created by the dark order of sorcerers called the Alizarin Sons. The method and ingredients in constructing/summoning this creature are closely guarded by the Sons, but it's dangerous purpose is widely feared. The inverse bowl shaped Mana Prison attacks a wizard by swooping in from above, and enveloping the entire head of the victim. As soon as it is settled on the now cocked back head, the mind of the victim is instantly thrown into a torpor filled with dreams of consuming bliss. The Prison serves many purposes to it's master, firstly as it feeds on the latent magical energy of it's victim, it's waste becomes siphoned mana directly into the body of it's creator. Secondly, the Prison acts as a magical remote control, where the dreaming mage acts as a powerful minion of the Alizarin Son. Fortunately for us, it is very obvious when a wizard is under the control of a Mana Prison (as you can see), and he cannot be used in any discreet manner, as his spell casting and movement is jerky and awkward at best. Part of the real horror of the homunculus is that, though it is under command from it's creator, it is heavily influenced by the strong passions and desires of it's prey. So an infected wizard will often destroy or kill everything and everyone he loves. If he has the misfortune of surviving his possession, he will 'awake' to a nightmare reality of his own creation.
The Mana Prison is used commonly in folklore to rebuke children in age old wives tales, and parables.
Moving on... one week later..
CHOW #81 - Arctic Undead
It's time for LOWLOW to show us some guts. This one was a nice round. Other nice entries there...
The Vaktu comes from an ancient time when the shape of the earth's continents were unrecognizable to the ones of the present. In those days, Vaktu walked the earth as proud beast-gods, worshiped by the lost tribe of the Kazayan. After the great war, the face of the earth changed forever, and what used to be the holy land of the Kazayan were now the cold Northern Glaciers.
The Vaktu belonged to a family of beasts that are now referred to as the "highest echelon of reanimation" in necromancy. Many necromancers train decades in order to raise these beast-gods from their slumber. Raising a Vaktu from the dead not only required years of training, but also demanded that the necromancer traveled to the ends of the earth, to summon them from their icy graves. Because of the high level of difficulty in summoning these beasts, many necromancers lose control of their creatures, leaving the Northern Glaciers full of Vaktu free to destroy anything in it's path.
here are some others
And another week later we get to one of my favorite rounds.
COW #82 - CUPID'S PET
I have to give you the link to this as SO MANY GREAT PIECES are there.. it's hard not to be amazed.
Cutness and wirdo heart breakers are available on the spot - just see this thread. Here is the winning image and some other gems:
His sacrifice of sight was the greatest gift he could give humanity, for if he was not to see, then his arrows would fly without judgment.
While the gesture was born of good intentions, the loss of targets resulted in couplings too bizare for discription. A Blue-Tipped Faryl by the name of Artemesia was summoned to confirm that Cupid's arrows did indeed reach human flesh. Loyalty to her master far exeeded this simple task however, as she provided not only a guide for his arrows but for his path as well. She became an extention of his will.
Anyway... just go ahead and visit this thread - lots of goodies there
COW #84 - Under your bed!
From the field audio report of Det. Lt. Marsh Dillon, Veridianopolis P.D.:
This is the last entry in the diary of Janey Holderman, age 7:
I'm so hungry. And cold! I finished all my bedtime snacks yesterday. And I'm so thirsty!
It started three days ago. Mom always told me if I didn't clean my room and kept throwing stuff under the bed, someday something would come alive under there. I didn't believe her. I thought she was kidding me. But she was right. Now Mom's dead. They ate her. They eat everything!
I woke up and the first one was there, under my bed, pushing me up against the ceiling. I screamed. Daddy came running in. It ate him. Then Mom, too. Then little Joey. Then Fluffers. Then it threw up. It looked like one of Fluffers' hairballs, but it was another one. It puked up another one of what it is.
They ate my gerbil, then my books, then my dolls. They even ate my Elmo puppet! And they keep eating and puking and eating and puking and eating and puking. But they always stay right under my bed!
I'm so scared. What if the bed falls of
Diary terminates. No clues to explain the mysterious destruction of the house, nor the disappearance of the Holderman family. The child must have been delirious. No sign of any unusual creatures, though I guess it wouldn't hurt to look one more time under the
The disappearance of Det. Dillon brought this case to our attention. We have now determined that an entirely new magical species has been created out of the nightmares of an undiscovered but extremely powerful psychic child, who unfortunately seems to have been killed by the creatures. Apparently taking form from random items the child had stored under her bed, it is fortunate that the ravenous creatures are bound to the place of their invocation -- their escape would be catastrophic! Their life cycle is fairly typical (consumption of mundane items followed by regurgitative replication), with the exception that once all edibles are consumed, they do not expire. Instead, the dominant individual eats all other members of the species, then goes into a dormant state, resembling very closely a child's large stuffed animal, until a new food source appears.
Some of our more alarmist adepts speculate that the child did not die, but instead found herself the master of the creatures, and was able to escape, perhaps even carrying one of the smaller things off with her. We are monitoring all paranormal and mundane media for any hint that this may be true.

Ahh.. it's good to dig the threads.
I feel like an Anteater ... wait - what is this? Stylized Animal Challenge?
and A LOT more great pieces HERE http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=96430
Moving on to the envir section. Seems like Chaos is doing a great job. The section is picking up and we go back to EOW #50 with few selections.
EOW #50 The Architects House
and runner up
She opened the door that would not open for the adults, stepped inside, and almost turned and ran back to the town. The strange and chilling expanse of the room drank the light, making it hard to see much, but she sensed the insanity of the place, and sensed also the regard of some evil presence. She wanted to run away, wanted very badly to run, but for the sake of her brother and the rest of the children, she knew she would not.
some other very good pics are waiting for you here:
Moving on to the next one we get more juicy art.
EOW#51 The Sacred Grove of the Machinae
I knew they had noticed me a while back but they were remaining passive for the time being, besides which I had come too far to care. All these years of searching, all this time, I was here.... no program could have been written to create this, it couldn't be the work of a machine, but it was. There was no other explanation, all the myths, all the fokelore; eliminated, forever.
Unfortunatelly EOW #52 did not had the success i was expecting. No pics from that battle will be here.
ahhh... nothing like milking the wireless in a god morning of a Parisian hotel - got some PM's from CA friends.

today's update is to pay the respects to a great artist who inspired a lot of people here on CA.
