Pop Quiz – Spirits of Autumn

6c9fa14f2ef1d4edd749b99f0e81ff92

Your Pop Quiz challenge this week is to design a mythical woodland creature – sprite, faerie, elf etc - that embodies the spirit of Autumn.

You only get one entry so be creative, and above all else, have fun!

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever);

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • The image must be new and designed specifically for the Pop Quiz;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. 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).

This contest will close at 6pm Eastern on Sunday, September 25th.

  1. I was going to do a more naked version of this, but, this just worked better to my eye.

  3. I had JUST created a portrait of my new Pathfinder character, Forest the Satyr. so for the contest I crowned him King of the Autumal Equinox for the Mabon festival last Thursday, Sept 22, 2016 although many celebrated on Saturday(or Satyrday as I like to call it), being a weekend.

    Lyrics

    O now is the time of the Harvest,
    As we draw near to the years end
    Now is the time of Mabon
    Autumn is the time to descend

    Old Woman waits patiently for us
    At the threshold of the labyrinth within
    She offers her hand that we may understand
    The treasures that await at journeys end

    O Great Mother has given of Her body,
    We give thanks for Her fruit and Her grain
    We then clear the fields so that next harvests yields
    Will be full and abundant again.

    Old Woman leads us through the darkness
    Our most ancient and trusted of friends
    She carries the light of spiritual insight
    And leads us to our wisdom once again

    And as we journey through the darkness
    And as we continue to descend
    We learn to let go of what obscures our soul
    And re-discover our true being in the end

    O now is the time of the Harvest,
    As we draw near to the years end
    Now is the time of Mabon
    Autumn is the time to descend

    Old Woman waits patiently for us
    At the threshold of the labyrinth within
    She offers her hand that we may understand
    The treasures that await at journeys end

    O Great Mother has given of Her body,
    We give thanks for Her fruit and Her grain
    We then clear the fields so that next harvests yields
    Will be full and abundant again.

    Old Woman leads us through the darkness
    Our most ancient and trusted of friends
    She carries the light of spiritual insight
    And leads us to our wisdom once again

    And as we journey through the darkness
    And as we continue to descend
    We learn to let go of what obscures our soul
    And re-discover our true being in the end

    O now is the time of the Harvest,
    As we draw near to the years end
    Now is the time of Mabon
    Autumn is the time to descend
