Hey all. Here is my newest creature from Creature of the Week. I ended up with a really strong start on this one, and tried to carry that right on through to the end. I'm pretty happy with this piece. I spent a lot of time with it and I hope it shows. The concept of the week was that it had to have slime production involved somehow and that it's organs should be visible (those are its organs silhouetted in the orange areas. Anyway, this creature's diet is mostly an insanely spicy root after which it's named. Pictured below is the creature rushing to the nearest water source after eating a particularly spicy root. Hope ya like it!

Full Clip... of bugs?

Hey guys and gals. Here's this week's COW. Had to finish it up pretty quickly because I'm headed home to Toronto for the first time since mid-May. I'm pretty excited to just chill out with the family for a little while.

The theme of this creature of the week was "murderous intent - Gnixxian assassin" because it was COW 187 (187 being the police radio code for homicide). The creature had to be some beast used within high profile assassination. I decided to create the Hollowpoint Burrower Mite, which when triggered by the frequency when cellular devices receive calls, would burrow into it's victim, lay it's eggs, and leave behind a wound suspiciously similar, in appearance, to a bullet hole.

Hope ya' like it, I'm pretty happy with the turn out.
