Very cool WIP but I, personally, couldn't imagine a wolf making that noise.
Also the rules say it must be original so I don't think this would qualify...

Anyway, I have a couple of Ideas for this comp but I might not get a chance to do it (work, ugh)

I believe it means that it has to be something new that you came up with on your own. So you might be able to do a twist on a wolf, but not just a wolf.

I could be wrong however so don't take my word for it...

Original - What Justin said. It must be your own creation based on your interpretation of the sound. it's ok to base your creature on a wolf, but it should still be distinctly different.

In fact I would really discourage people from taking an animal and modifying it a bit. I think the more original your creature the better. And I can assure you no one will tell you that your entry doesn't fit the rules if you make something really out there.

My suggestion is to listen to the sound on loop for a bit, just to really familiarise yourself with it, then do some brainstorming/sketching.

Sure, but only really as a general reference. include a screenshot of your spore Character if you do.

BTW, if anyone else wants to play around with the creature creator to get some inspiration you can download the trial version for free here

Now, to the workings~

@Ergg - I'd rather not have any robotic 'creatures' in ths challenge, but I guess some kind of robot/animal hybrid is ok if you strongly maintain the focus on the animal aspects. I definitely don't want to see any full out robots/mechs/machines etc... Just keep in mind that aim here is to design your own living, organic creature.

@ekobor - Fits the sound nicely; I can really hear it Wilhelm screaming now :)

@oren - Looks good so far, but where's the rest of it? :s And why such a blindingly bright bg colour? Remember, you do have another 5 days to complete this...

Anyone can enter as many times as they want.

@oren...aww c'mon...give it a nice background...where is he - in a jungle?  sitting on a fence? On the moon?

It is nice, but I think it would be even nicer with the rest of his body. His body doesn't even have to be birdlike, he could perhaps have the body of a fish or a mongoose.

Why not at least try making the rest of him? You might even surprise yourself with the results if you just push yourself a little bit further.

 I don't see anything wrong with his cock, if you're refering to that. To me, I suppose it contributes to make him cooler.

"Uncontrible" can only mean one thing: "best so far!"
I'm looking forward to the finished thing...

Not sure I'll make anything, too much work pulling wires (private joke)...
However, I do have a few cool ideas, so...

This is just a quick idea.  It's supposed to be a shrew-type thing.  I've been a bit discouraged lately with my pixel art...(l'm stuck in a rut...lol).  Does this have any potential?  Should I go on?  Any suggestions?

@Jocher: the new one looks really cool!

Here's what I've gotten so far:

Obviously I'm not done shading yet and I still have to add a background but I figured I might as well show what I got.

I have a question: The edit to the rules say that "the purpose of this challenge is to depict a creature that makes the sound of the Wilhelm Scream as oppose to depicting a character who is shown as making this noise because they are in agony." Does that mean that I can't have the creature that I'm working on getting his finger pricked by something pointy? I'm asking this because I had an idea of a way to make my entry funnier.

@dpixel: It just looks like a mouse to me... the rules require it to be more original.

So~ Here is where I am so far~ He is supposed to be very dirty, so I'll probably lower the contrast between the shades, and actually get the shading looking good. (That is a giant rain drop, by the way~)

@Justin - it really should be the sound your creautre generally makes and not just a creature making that sound due to being in some kind of pain.

The idea behind this challenge was to transform the sound of the scream into something out of its original context. So it defeats the purpose a bit if the Wilhelm Scream is just transformed into the sound of another animal screaming.

@Justin - I know it just looks like a mouse.  Actually it looks like something between a shrew and a mouse.  I posted above that I was looking for suggestions.  This won't be entered the way it is now if at all.  I put it here in the WIP section for some ideas cuz I dunno.  2nd head?  Longer body...then it becomes weasel-like.  I just thought shrew cuz they scream..and then work from there.

 Should have done the band of animals thing..lol

Since these are my last days in the countryside, I decided not to spend them pixelling. No way. So I'll just give my ideas to anyone interested.

1- This creature is a predator, incorporating features from its preys, and luring its next victim by imitating the sound of the last one. The last one was human.

2- Not an idea really, just a hunch.
