Okay, I was really wondering.  It usually switches over for me at 2am, so I was sitting here refreshing every couple minutes so I could go to bed and let the ideas stew.  Glad you have it up so I can sleep!

We're normally on to it, like pretty much anything here the challenge isn't an automated process.

I haven't seen this happen in the time I've been here; is it not unusual for them to be almost  twenty minutes behind on updating the challenge? o.o

I'm going to give this a try :)

BlueMagma (Level 3 Chief) @ 8/4/2011 20:50

Definitely going to do this. :D

Delicious (Level 9 Boss) @ 8/2/2011 23:18

Gonna do this one for sure! :)

Yes, very much agree! Creature of the Week on Conceptart.org is a fantastic inspiration source btw.

Hmm...I'll give this one a go, will try to avoid giving it a sprite look this time <_<

A word of advice, write a backstory for your abomination of nature. I believe it's essential  when presenting characters.

Sounds like it can be anything from a foot down all the way to the core, so caves should be fine since they're inbetween. :)

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/1/2011 06:39

By the by: can underground also mean an underground cave? Or near the earth's core? Just anything underground basically?

Opacus (Level 7 Ichikyu) @ 8/1/2011 06:24

Delete your post, hope that no moderator saw it and post the monster anway? :)

 A shit your going to join too ;(, i have no chance....

Carnivac (Level 8 Behemoth) @ 8/1/2011 01:03

I pixel scribbled something along those lines a lil while ago.  Since I already 'designed' it way before this challenge it shouldn't count I suppose.

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 8/1/2011 00:09

 Oho, only 100x100 for something huge and sinister I'm planning to make :D

Good challenge.
