However, if you're a new game developer and you're looking to show off your game to all of our members, then we'd love to hear all about your game in our sneak peeks forum.

All-Artist Creature Mash

Discussion in 'Art and Writing Forum' started by Undel, Jul 29, 2012.

  1. Welcome to the creature-mash exercise. I did a solo topic on this, but there's been some interest in making this a group challenge. So here we are! All artists are welcome to participate. :)

    How it works:
    Combine two words from the BIG OL LIST OF WORDS for the user above you to draw. You may also suggest words that be added to the big ol list of words in the same post. For full rules and clarifications, see the bottom of this post.

    African Wild Dog, Akita, Alpaca, Angler Fish, Badger, Baku, Bat, Bat-eared fox, Bearded lizard, Bittern, Boar, Bobcat, Burmese mountain Dog, Butterfly, Cheetah, Chimera, Chinchilla, Clownfish, Clydesdale, Cobra, Coyote, Crane, Crocodile, Crow, Dolphin, Dugong, Eel, Fairy, Falcon, Ferret, Flying squirrel, Fungus, Fuu dog, Gargoyle, Gazelle, Ghost, Goat, Golem, Gorilla, Gryphon, Hainu, Hopping Mouse, Horse, Horseshoe Crab, House cat, Human, Hummingbird, Hump-back Whale, Hydra, Jellyfish, Killer Whale, Kirin, Leopard, Lion, Lobster, Manta Ray, Mongoose, Naga, Ocelot, Octopus, Oryx, Panda, Partridge, Peacock, Penguin, Phoenix, Poison-dart frog, Polar bear, Raccoon, Rattlesnake, Red Panda, Rope fish, Scorpion, Skunk, Sludge, Snail, Sparrow, Sphinx, Spider,Tapir, Turkey, Turtle, Unicorn, Vulture, Wasp, Wolverine, Zebra,
    8-bit, Acid, Ancient, Angelic, Aquatic, Arcane, Black magic, Bioluminescent, Celestial, Cherry Blossom, Chibi, Creepy, Cybernetic, Demonic, Derpy, Earthen, Feathered, Fire, Fragmented, Frostbitten, Gentlemanly, Glass, Glitter, Jellybean, Iridescent, Leafy, Lunar, Melted, Metal, Molten, Miniscule, Mummified, Nebula, Neon, Oriental, Outback, Overgrowth, Patchwork, Pale, Pika, Radioactive, Rainbow, Rave, Reborn, Reef, Ripple, Robotic, Rotting, Rust, Sandwich, Scaled, Seraphic, Shadow, Sparkle, Spiny, Smoke, Steampunk, Storm, Summoned, Supernova, Toothpaste, Tribal, Undead, Windy, Winged,


    1. If you post, you're also signing up for the challenge because the person who posts below you will mash two words together for you. If you'd like to comment on the topic or the mixes people come up with do not make a suggestion and begin your comment with "Comment:".
    2. You retain the rights to whatever you draw. This is a drawing exercise, not a request area. :)
    3. You may post/sign-up again after you've completed your first challenge. Do not ask for a second challenge if you have not completed your first.
    4. You may take the results of this exercise to whatever sort of finish you like. A sketch, pixel art, full color, CG, physical media, 3D model, whatever!
    5. You must mash together words that are in the big 'ol list of words. You can suggest that words be added, but at the time of your post you must use whatever's up there.
    6. You may mash two animals or an animal and a modifier. You may not mash two modifiers, as it does not describe a creature.

  17. @Amethysttiger! Draw: Supernova + Clownfish
    No suggestions from me this time.

    Undel, I see what you did there. And here's my result.
    Chinese ink with white permanent marker. Only using a size 10 flat brush (Ashley series A.55).
    Oh god I miss Chinese ink. And this one I have? Friggin' ancient. It's almost as old as me.
