Creatures of Myth

Check out more of my contests in Contests Hosted by Lothuriel

Winners not only get bragging rights but, will also be given these nifty badges to display in their house or wiki!


Theme: What sorts of creatures come to mind when you hear the word Mythical? Is it an elegant elf? A minotaur or perhaps a gargoyle comes to mind, or could it be a creature of your very own that you want to show off? For this contest, pick your favorite mythical creature and draw, paint or sculpt it. Just in case you can't decide which to choose from, I am allowing two (2) entries per person. Good luck and have fun!!

A few rules will apply:
- No vulgar, extremely violent, or pornographic images will be allowed to enter.

- NO spamming, flaming, or foul language in the comment box please.

- Photomanipulations will be accepted/declined on a per member basis. Message [Lothuriel] for details. All other art forms welcome! ie. sculpture, painting, digital paintings, drawing, body art (your designs only)

- All entries must comply with the uploading art rules

- No repeat entries! This means, if your art is found in another contest in Elftown, it will be removed from this one. We have had problems with folks in the past entering one picture in up to 10 contests and winning several of them. I don't think that is fair and it defeats the purpose of the contests.

- Art colaborations are welcome as long as both parties are in agreement.

- To ensure each entry gets full attention and a fair chance of winning, please upload each entry to Elftown.

- THe most important rule!! Have fun and be creative!

Deadline: 30 entries!

Creatures of Myth 1 - Winners of the first competition and a gallery of all the participants' entries.

2009-12-24 [Rondel]: Wow! I'm glad that I wandered here on my latest "I have a breathing space so I'm going to spend some time on ET if it kills me" jaunt... ...even if the contest was long over by the time I found it. :D

[deeterhi], as usual, yours was among the artwork that caught my eye (I said "among", I don't have time to name all of the pieces/artists here I like, and a recitation of most of the entrants would probably get boring, and be the only way to be accurate... LOL), but not for the usual reason this time.

I'm not sure why, but when I spotted that unicorn of yours, the first thought in my head was "I want to see a Tarot deck done in that style" -- and the reason I'm not sure why is that it's not about it being Tarot cards, because this piece isn't classic Tarot imagery. I think it's something about the way this piece kind of grabs me by the intuitive part of my artistic response circuit, if that makes any sense. I could see this kind of image as being very easy to respond to on an emotional level, a pre-intellectual level.

Huh. For a response that was so strong, I guess it's hard to articulate in a way that would make any sense to anyone else. LOL Still, worth a try, I guess. Whenever anyone's art affects me that much, I tend to want to try to reflect that back to them -- just as I would want to know if something I created had that kind of impact on a viewer. :D

2011-06-10 [pegasus1000]: I would.

2011-06-10 [Thistlewood]: Me too! I need an excuse to draw something!

2011-06-10 [Triola]: My plan for the summer is to draw all I can, so I'd be up for it :)

2011-06-14 [Company Awesome]: I really loved the pictures from the first one, I would definitely love to see a second run. I may not be a pen and paper artist, but I can still cast a vote and appreciate the skills of others. :)

2011-08-25 [kamisch]: I totally would.

2012-01-05 [Ravenclaw]: Is this still running? If so:

2012-01-07 [Lothuriel]: No it isn't running right now but, as soon as I get a bit more organized around here, it's on my to do list! :)

2012-01-07 [Ravenclaw]: K, I was just curious.

2012-01-07 [Ravenclaw]: Thanks. If you like it that much I'm open to commissions. Hint hint nudge nudge lol.

2012-01-10 [Lothuriel]: That'd be awesome if I was flat broke :p

2012-01-10 [Ravenclaw]: That sounds strangely like an insult... I'm really hoping that was supposed to be "Wasn't".

2012-02-09 [Lothuriel]: <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif>OMIGOSH!! Yes! Yes! "Was not broke!" That'd be horrible it I meant it the other way!!

2012-02-10 [Ravenclaw]: lol
