Sorry for taking a while. I’m going to be brief because I don’t have a lot of time to lay out all the results.
Bottom line: Herr D won
I may come back and write more later.
Deadline is August 18, 3:00 p.m.
Not exactly how I wanted to win.. but I’m happy with my piece.
Bonus point if you use the eyes on the companion.
I prefer misuse over literal use for each object, and I appreciate detail.
This is a piece of concept art for The Waking Inferno. I may use it for the cover if I tweak and edit it with another software first. I also want to change the font.

The Peace Between Wars
Work in Progress
Elven Character from my game Reign of Shaldir
This is a poster I created for my graphic novel, Firefly Lives.
Oops the last one didn’t post.
Futuristic siren of the wastelands. Also kind of an unintentional play on the Little Mermaid. The backstory isn’t the same, but she’s basically a mermaid with fire engine red hair. Didn’t notice it until I finished. This is part of a CDC
Areic Anam. A relative of the Dearg Due and Baobhan sith.
I’m actually not a huge fan of this. Something about it just doesn’t sit right with me. She is undead so her skin is supposed to be that white. I’ll have to revisit this one and see if I can’t make it what I want it to be.
The Plainsbird, a shaman of the Allusyn grasslands.
Herr D, sorry I haven’t responded yet, hectic life. It’s a character from my team’s video game. She’s a Purgatorian- a soul that fits neither in Hell nor Heaven. She’s an extremely powerful individual who is partly inspired by the Celtic goddess of the same name. She wears armor made of dragon glass, a substance that is stronger than any metal and comes from the wyrms that guard Eden and Limbo. She is a founder of the Grey Army, the roguish military of the purgatorians. She has the power to control light and dark magic, and her twin blades each hold powers in those two energies. Also, she can teleport to various places, if there is a strong enough energy presence there, although this takes much of her magical energy and leaves her drained for a period of time so she does this sparingly.
Speaking of, first contest will be to recreate a famous fairytale. This scene must include at least one character and a short description stating which story you’re recreating, what theme you chose (i.e. twisted, steampunk, modern, etc), and a title for your submission. A backstory or full retelling is not necessary, but it will probably help your score.
Overall composition- 10 points
Creativity- 5 points
Attention to detail-5 points
Popularity- 5 points per vote
Extra care- 3 points
3 BONUS points if you choose a less popular or obscure story.
So this is my first time adding to this group.. but I had a lot of fun doing this haha.
The Little Mutant (a not so subtle reference to a famous character)
In the far, far future, humans have inevitably ruined the earth (Go us!), causing most of the land to be ravaged, desolate wasteland. Few places on earth still contain life, and the life that exists is mutated and just odd looking. For example, many species of fireflies have adapted glowing wings instead of their iconic glowing bums. The foliage, contaminated by various chemicals, grows in bizarre colors such as purple, orange, and pink. Gas balls, similar to the ones in Scottish moors, rise and create glowing green orbs that lure people and animals to the area. However, the most afflicted aspect of earth is also its largest- the oceans, rivers, lakes, and seas. Global warming first caused sea levels to rise with melted ice, but then drying the earth and distributing the water in unnatural patterns. With leeching from nuclear plants and toxic sewage, the remaining water became radioactive and volatile. The creatures in the water became contorted forms of what they were. These mutants include the amphibious karawi, small humanoids with webbed hands and feet, yellow eyes, and withered looking green skin. They also have leaf like appendages they use in order to blend in with foliage. Another, the aureya, is a mutated species of jellyfish who have grown a nucleic organ similar to a brain and eyes that protrude from their gelatin head. They also surface from time to time, as oxygen levels in the water are incredibly low and are not always stable enough to support their needs. The most alarming mutation on record, however, can be found in some communities that live on or around the water, such as New Orleans, Venice, the Congo, and the Bajau Laut to name a few. Many of these people, who rely on the water for many aspects of their lives, have changed completely in their physical state. With gills, webbed and claw like appendages, abnormal skin colors, and coral or barnacle growth on their bodies, they are hardly human anymore. Like many life forms on this new earth, they can survive in and out of water. While not completely feral, they distrust most outsiders, and humans who trespass or liter in their waters are likely to face some sort of danger. They have reverted to a fairly primitive- and sometimes cannibalistic- lifestyle. They are territorial and protect the remaining bodies of water in pods with up to 100 individuals. Many are still rather attractive and they use this, along with the glowing gas orbs, to lure their human and animal prey to their death. With this protection, many bodies of water are slowly becoming less polluted and life is starting to return. It will likely never reach the levels of healthy biodiversity that once existed, but as their numbers grow, water pollution declines and aquatic life of both new and old species, increases.
Breakdown of objects:
The eyes were used to make the heads of the jellyfish and her left hand that’s underwater.
The glove was used to make the little yellow crab’s claw and the blue tube fungus type plants on the rock.
I used two capes to make the little mutant guy in the top left corner of the picture.
I hope I followed the rules and everything, but even if I didn’t, I got wayyy too much enjoyment from this.
