Pop Quiz: Horny

Happy Saturday, folks! Your one-day quick-fire challenge today is to create an awesome image that uses the following item from Ears-Standard:

What ELSE would you think the contest title would mean?!

You must use the horn at least once in the illustration (and not necessarily AS a horn), but you can then use it as many times after that as you like.

You only get one entry — that’s right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular challenge, but instead of a whole week I’ll announce my favorites either tonight or tomorrow morning. Elaborate backgrounds aren’t necessary, though if you’ve got one it’s fine.

  • All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like ImageShack, PhotoBucket, the HeroMachine Forums, whatever);
  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • Please name your files as [your name]-[character name].[file extension]. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
  • Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this). Here’s a quick-start guide on how to do that for various image hosting services.

I’ll pick one entry as my personal favorite, which will get to be featured in the side bar to the right for ultimate glory! As a bonus you’re allowed to say you won the Internet for a few days.

Good luck!

    Dunno if I overused the chosen item. I was going to make the entire face out of them, but I couldn’t figure out how to do the eyes decently.

  2. The Nameless One has been in the forests of this world for as long as anyone can remember. He is one with the forest and so no one alive has ever seen him. He draws people into the darkest parts of the forest and induces a deep sleep upon them. He then takes their eyes and absorbs them into his body. No one knows why he only takes the eyes but you can rest assured it is for no good purpose.

  4. You enter the room and come face-to-face with a GOLEM QUEEN. Created by a secret caste of mages, alchemists, and necromancers, each creature holds command over a small army of lesser golems. And unfortunately for you, Golem Queens cannot be reasoned with. During their creation, each Queen is infused with a captured soul that is driven mad by the process. You only have a split second to make a decision. Do you:
    Flee from the room? (turn to 385)
    Use the Idol of Hypnotism, if you have one? (turn to 15)
    Attack the Queen? (turn to 112)
