I disagree with Suleman about Inazuma. The chinless kind of goes with the inhuman-ness. I think you should work on the mask grip. An ambiguous bit is whether the right hand is true or a glove. Excellent use of the ‘nanny-nanny-boo-boo’ tongue. And yes, Dewasenja is COOL.
Looking forward to seeing some.
“And for the following, bids will start at three meals, one backscratch. A prototype from a protohuman, Unga’s Bunga was not sold previously because Unga was clubbed to death by a rival for the affections of a certain other attractive protohuman, who shall remain nameless in this exchange. Had Unga been holding this weapon, painstakingly flint-knapped by Dorg Of The Steady Hands, instead of the attractive protohuman’s hair, the incident would have had a much different outcome. It is shaped explicitly for Unga’s hand, but any of your tribe’s healthy members should have a good grip. Unga’s Bunga is suitable for melee combat, crushing nuts, hammering stakes or pikes around a campsite, tenderizing meat, or assuring an attractive protohuman’s compliance.
Do we have an opening bid?”
Sorry for the late getting back, ev1! Thank you, Keric; Universal Biologic was a great gig.
Now–these three tops will be due in a pic on 8/26 by 5pm, hopefully to be judged by 8pm.
One additional point will be awarded to a reference to Bob Hope. If the reference is vague, one additional day early for questions would be advisable.
Here we have a photo of Cathedralesis, the species nickname for the Stained Glass Sunset Butterfly, found only on the disappearing shores of Sandy Atoll in the Northern Pacific. Seven hundred miles from the Bering Strait in a southerly direction, Sandy Atoll has deciduous trees, the SGS Butterfly, seven species of tiny lizard (Leaf Mace Lizard shown bottom left,) and fifty-odd species of rare orchid (Sonoma Society Number Thirty-seven, depicted middle.)
cloak hoodie is clouds, antennae, legs of butterfly, legs of lizard, part of leaves
mouth guard is flower center, lizard’s rear legs, butterfly wing patterns
feather is lizard body and head, petals, butterfly body
[snort] Keric? I’m sorry for being so absent. IRL has piled on even more. You have a good piece here. Please take the helm.
. . . rrrrhh! I’m saying, same three items, bonus point for reference to the movie “Independence Day” that requires no explanation, and due 7/11/18 noon EST tbj 8pm.
Low-level Mystique / Elastigirl, but male and villainous. Here, he conceives of a lotto scam.
I’ve picked 3 that make me think of marshmallow pie. Have your picture done by
6/26/18 EST noon, with judging by 8pm. Up to one whole bonus point for best picture containing a dessert–I think I’m hungry . . . See items to incorporate below.
IRL has become a bombadier.
“Hi, Gran? I’ve been flirting a little with this guy at that new mall? Cashier at Designer Fabrics. He says they really do make the patterns in-house. . . . What? Oh, sorry. Eating a pastry from Three Sisters Cafe across the way. . . . Yeah, his costume is cute, too. Horns. Did you want to know anything else while I’m at MythMall, Gran?”
The hair item made a great pastry, besides being a goatee, eyebrows, eyelashes, and shadow effect on the cashier. The pattern became a pattern, backdrop splash, and tracks. The background became a pattern.
Thank you! On it. M-a-l- . . .
Well, I just figured out I won’t make it by tomorrow late (sorry)–if you have another entrant, they’ll win. I’ll look tomorrow to see if you extend or swap or if someone wins.
IRL plus a bit of writing has taken up all of it. How do I keep winding up without two minutes to rub together?
I hope you enjoyed. As of this moment, I am considering suggestions and queries from anyone who wishes to collaborate (illustrate) the above story. I have the bottle somewhere, and may provide the text to someone who wishes to incorporate it inside an illustration.
1. Eventually, I will ask for the text from some of the submissions so I can post them with the appropriate segments. Some of the posts will obviously be better with multipanel pics, just like comic book pages. An easy cheat is to put the Background/Std picture frame with colors 1, 2, and 3 at 100% white over a panel when done to fix the edges. I will also be sharing that text with whoever wants to ‘be true to the other pages’ style.’
2. Word balloons and thinking bubbles from any character but the Shadow will be white. His wlll be black.
3. Obviously sticking to the text I’ve written will bring favor to any submission.
4. If the moderators wish to make a contest out of one of these or any of my other fiction posted here, I will be flattered and consider canonizing any pics that both impress me and are true enough to the entire text and incorporated style elements so far.

The Shadow smiled at hearing those words from behind the van. Betrayal was an art, he thought to himself. Faked char marks next to a UV lamp, originally used to harden a villain’s skin, were waiting to be found in his old quarters. Mike was sure to be whacked any minute now. Soon, in a neighboring town, he’d be disguised as a regular person, selling those tubular snacks that are . . . REMARKABLY bad for everyone. And laughing, laughing at the money they PAID him to do it to them. Freedom was GRAND!
It WAS all shortly. Tony’s men were waiting in the van on the street when Granite walked out, casting a very long, oddly-shaped shadow, turned, and walked back in, looking all around confusedly. Tony’s man Chuck nodded. “They’s lookin’ to see if we’s heah, yet. Call Tony, Sam. We’re about to go in. Nobody left.”
