So that explains why you drew cows in a fishbowl.

Also, are any of my COW ideas ever gonna be used? I left a lot of them on SirNightOwl's wall.

Before you PM ToasT might be worth checking your ideas in SirNightOwl's wonderful list of previous COW entries which might already have your fantastic idea done previously so as to not waste your own or anyone else's time. Time wasting is terribly unproductive. Like making a post which could have been a couple of words and turning into a large paragraph when you should be doing university coursework but instead your watching Alien Director's Cut at just gone midnight and have work in the morning.

G'luck

OK MINE IS DONE

Cow 81-

Sucter

The Sucter forms a symbiotic relationship with a Crust-Fish, one of the most mould covered fish in existence. It stays with it's partnered fish, eating the mould in return for protection.


I ran. I ran until my muscles burned, and my veins pumped battery acid. Then I ran some more.

That's some good stuff there ashman! It's the best one in this thread so far. Considering there are only two entries submitted. Good, good.

Maybe I should make something for this.

The purple sea worm. it stalks around endlessly searching for any life forms to eat.

I don't know if this is very good or not, it's late, and i made it while ti was late so it might be worse or better than I think it is now.

i just realised a major error with mine and daniels, if they were bottom feeders, there wouldnt be air bubbles, 1 because they dont breathe air and dont go near the surface, 2 because theyd be crushed by pressure if they had any air, oh well its their for effect :)

and mine wouldnt have light columns :(

I know this is in violation of the rules of the COW....
but to be honest I really don't consider the people I based this off of as human exactly..

they say a artist has to pull from life experiences of him and the people around him :P

but either way since I did it here it is..... another comedy entry......
So here it is my bottom Feeder

Bottom Feeder.
"This repulsive creature works efficiently at causing mayhem with in families and drain the wallets and bank accounts of the men they target. The only sure way to avoid such a fate is to avoid the creature entirely. if this cannot be done the next best suggestion is to kill it with fire, and lots of it. Not only is killing this creature on site the law is 16 states but it is your duty as a human."
~ creatures other name includes, "Trailer Trash, Skank, Home Wrecker, Whore and OMFG WTF IS THAT!!!!1!11!!!"

Well, my save file for this magically got corrupted while I was working on it, so I was left with a half finished version I saved for the web as my full size image. I tried to finish it, but working this small is kind of a pain, so it doesn't look great, sorry. :[ I'm gonna call this my final for this week since I'm not going to have time to start over tomorrow.

Description:

Centuries ago, this species started out as a regular fish, swimming in the mid-ocean depths and feeding on smaller animals. As time passed, predators and a search for food drove the creatures further and further into the depths of the ocean, where they slowly evolved to deal with the pressure and darkness, until they became little more than a gelatinous, phosphorescent mass surrounding a degraded skeleton. They feed mainly on the small, insect-like fish that inhabit the ocean floors with them.

Mine isn't the huge fish. Mines the tiny black thing perched atop it.
