    originally was going to leave this to like last minute, you know as a surprise and all, but since th two evolution thing is screwing me up, i need to show this for validation

    what i did was get the current day hyena
    Start
    [​IMG]


    The hyena evolved more developed front legs as well as it started balding around the head so it is easier to clean the blood. Nothing dramatic
    stage 1
    [​IMG]

    Then the front leg evolved to such an extent that it allowed bipedal movement. the hind leg has devolved to a useless lump of flesh, only used to aid in mating
    stage 2
    [​IMG]

    later with the warmer climate, the hyena was able to supersize. this is pretty much the apex of the hyena evolution. explanations on the image
    stage 3
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    i take my inspiration from various evolution theory books and the show "future is wild". if you are an animal nerd, watch it

    if you dont really like what i did because it doesnt follow the rules, better tell me now so i could start concepting for more of a pokemon approach
    if not, i gotta do the colour illustration

    I'm jealous, what have you been watching in order to think of such useful[and plausible] evolutions, Pyramid?

    I don't know if I'm gonna work this one out further or use it for this contest P:

    This contest needed something "cute" with all those worms, beetles, bugs so give bunny a hug, please.

    Suggestions please! ;D

    PS: Yes I know I kinda messed up perspective and it's just a WIP so I'd rather know what to fix now.

    Somehow it appears like it (the second one) have too many arms - and the is the feeling of disconnection with some of them. But I like the dragon appearance of it.

    Yeah, it's kind of odd, but it's the same number of limbs. The lower pair of wings becomes legs.

    Well I made this out of boredom but Im thinking about doing my submission like this (of course with better paper and crap since this was made with lined paper and tearing since I was too lazy to find scissors) since I know I can't outdraw the other submissions. Here I have oragamitized my creatures first stage (the pics are kinda big so Ill hide all the ones cept the first):

    Just want to get some feedback on the idea, obviously this first pic is just a rough draft. I'd have to use at least colored paper to make it acceptable, this was more of draft to see how I should make it.

    rofl. Ya I probably can't outdraw them either, but they said its a "Concept" contest, not a "how well can you draw?" art contest.

    Well I get that, but I figure this is a bit more creative. Anyone can draw something, but can they make it 3d with the exact same materials? And like I said, this is a really early rough draft. Perhaps this could compliment my final idea instead of being it. If I work on it enough I could make it more of a 3d model. This one right now has pretty much absolutely no detail...........

    hmm, thats odd they worked a couple minutes ago.....


    Wow, didn't work again. Heres the files in a thumbnail form. The one picture shows up right everytime so I'm not sure whats wrong

    Well I took another swing at the idea of a model of it which can be seen in the second image. Once again a really early rough draft idea.

    Ok, I think I will draw 3 animals, then combine them and make a new animal, with 3 different evolutions.

    First combination creature:

    Trying to make a look alike:

    My redraw of it:
    Here it is
    [​IMG]


    I made the background soft pink so you can see the lines better.

    Ok its not as good as the others, but... wth right? Its just a concept of a dragon.

    The pink's actually pretty blinding when partnered with the size of it. Maybe if you scaled down the image a little bit it would look better.
