oh yeah we're bringin it back

If you dont know, chow stands for character of the week and is a weekly art competition run just for fun, the theme for Chow #51 is Gaia, or mother nature, whichever way you want to take it, originality may take a hit here, but try your best

Art rules
- No ms paint (unless its exceptional)
- Humanoid-ish creatures only (arms legs hands etc)
- Must be related to theme
- No other creatures unless they are the secondary focus of the piece
- Character must be original unless otherwise stated.
- Only one finished piece per person will be accepted into voting
- Work in progress pieces can be posted in this thread
- Finished pieces will also go in this thread. Be sure to link to any larger versions on the art portal.
- No uploading old art. While I might not be able to prove you did, it defeats the point - to learn and have fun.
- Make sure you put effort in. Art that clearly took no effort will not be eligible for voting.

no voting thread for chow #50 because NOBODY entered, shame

... and such a great theme. Depending on how my Emoticon collab piece comes along, I might join.

deadline april 26th yep, anytime before i post the voting thread, art can be posted anytime up to and including the 26th, unlike the floods, the voting threads usually go up same time as the original thread did so youve got until then

I'll try to work something up, odds are it'll be a pen drawing though since I won't have the time for the tablet

Sigh. . . Even with an extension, I didn't give myself enough time. Here's my WIP.

A lot of good submissions above. Cheers, folks.
