Ok guys, you should know what to do in a TGT (2 Great Tastes) contest by now. You're given a compulsory genre (in this case Fantasy) and you have to mix it with another genre (e.g. Sci-Fi, Horror, Western etc.) for your entry. Simple as that.
As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.
Rules for posts, contests, and challenges that I am hosting: Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters, no characters based on RPG’s or other games. The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warnings. Only post pictures and images that you have either created for this contest specifically or you know for certain have never been entered to a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.
If we have a group picture of a group that’s a blend of fantasy and another genre, could I enter that?
Here is my post go to this link
His name is Julian the Half Demon
Darth Satyr: Sylvan Lord of the Sith
@Blunt Object- Two things, first- the link leads to a page that says the image was removed and second- I would be more comfortable if you hadn’t named the character in reference to Star Wars. Obviously, due to the link being broken, I can’t tell if it’s breaking the rules or not, but be careful.
Name: Julian the Demon Slayer
I can’t seem to see my own posts, is that a thing
Darth Satyr: Sylvan Lord of the Sith
Okay, I tried posting again and the image seems to be visible now. Let me know if it is not visible on your end. Apologies if I crossed a copyright line. Let me know if it doesn’t pass muster and I can go a different direction. I certainly don’t want to get anyone in trouble.
Here’s my first few entries, a few of my older ones:
Fantasy Force (fantasy and superheroes): http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Linea24-Fantasy-Force.png
And So It Begins (fantasy and apocalyptic): http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Linea24-And-So-It-Begins.png
Chambra (fantasy and sci-fi): http://www.heromachine.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Linea24-Chambra.png
I decided to try mixing fantasy and horror. I’d never seen a horror wizard before, so I gave it a shot. I also decided to avoid using glowy magic effects or wands or staffs, suggesting the character’s power through his physical nature. This is one wizard you wouldn’t want knocking on your door.
Linea, my early money is on Fantasy Force for the win! That’s going to be tough to beat…
Blunt, I can’t be sure, but given that the Star Wars properties are now owned by the Mouse (Disney, if you’d prefer), and they’ve been known to send lawyers after kids in the parking lot for drawing Mickey, I’m going to guess that your picture is going to be in a bit of trouble, even if you change the name, and simply isn’t going to be well recieved if you don’t…
@willypete–again, I don’t want to get anyone in trouble. If JR says it’s a no-go then it’s a no-go and I will have no objection to it being pulled from the contest.
@BluntObject- I’ve thought this one through and, though I don’t particularly want to do it, I will have to remove it. Thing is, if you’d have had him holding two lightsabers instead of and two handed one, I could have made some sort of rationalisation about it and just asked you to change the file name, but the dual ended sabre just makes it a bit too close that I can’t think of a good way to talk it out of trouble. Sorry.
@JR—Not a problem. I respect your opinion and defer to your judgement. Ultimately we should do what is best for the community as a whole.
Breaking through science to access magic required some irritating paperwork and policy rewrites along the way . . .
