My congratulations!!

I knew it. Entry #4 - Abecedar!

To be honest it was quite obviously. He has a unique personal style. This time it is the best entry for sure. Like I said before. It fits the theme best. Especially if you compare it with the stuff from the others.

I like it a lot. Good idea to create a plant with use of a real plant. And it tells a little story. Poor orc. That's charming.
Reminds a bit of Sarlacc and this tentacle beast from Enemy Mine.

RE: Artisan's Contest XIX - Winners!Admiral 06-24-2016

Very good use of materials, you jolly Australian! And no you don't retire because you've got a gold medal. Tongue

The orc and lizard being dragged into the plant are great details, and the small creatures not caught by it add quite some life to the scene. But best of all are the tracks left in the ground. Those tracks are brilliant, and add movement to the diorama. Bloody well done!

A well deserved winner, but the others work in the setting, too. Entry #1 shows off the scale of mutation and industrial pollution well. All isn't fine in the Dark Lands. #2 can easily be expected to be found tunneling among cracked lava stone, getting eaten by Magma Dragons and suchlike (big predators need big prey), and preying upon smaller creatures than itself as well as feeding off fungi, plants and carcasses. With #5 the Daemonic connection is more than likely. A monster in a lava stream masquerading as a bridge to lure unsuspecting mortals across? It's just brilliant and out of this world.

Good entries folks!

Also, here's some background thinking on entry #3. I'm curious to see the other entrants thoughts on their own Dark Lands creatures.

Congrats Abeceder.  Commiserations Admiral on being the only one without a medal, surely we can whip up a special joke one for you? Tongue Wink

Would never have guessed #2 was Fuggit's Shock

Great finish to the winners. Another fun contest.  Abecedar, your's had my vote.  The use of materials was very clever, and the orc and lizard details were great.  The detail however that sold me on the piece were the root traceries beneath the soil.  Well done!  Takes Hat off

Congrats to Fuggit Khan and Enjoysrandom! as well.  Nice job gentlemen!  Cheers!

Cheers, JR

Congratulations to everybody, these were all excellent entries and each one was uniquely creative and well painted/presented. Great stuff Cheers!
And a special congrats to Abecedar for your first (well deserved) Gold!
And good job Enjoysrandom! A medal on your first contest Cheers!
