    Default Iron Avatarist -- Ancient Western Mythologies Contest!

    Welcome to...
    Iron Avatarist

    This Iron Avatarist contest will be judged by - get this - an All-Mod Panel. That's right..




    Alarra, Gorbash Kadzar, Lilly, Rawhide, Roland St. Jude

    (The final lineup subject to change.)

    This week's theme is...
    Ancient Mythologies of Western Civilization

    Wha...? Okay, let me explain. You will be drawing avatars (in the OotS style) of deities, historical figures, or creatures from the mythologies of Europe and Northern Africa. Greek, Roman, Norse, Egyptian, Germanic and so forth. Nothing Asiatic or New World (Americas) (as we may do those as seperate contests later). *And don't forget to dress up the OotS characters!

    And, of course, there is going to be a First through Third place of the following:

    Best Mythological Figure
    Best Historical Figure
    Best Group (>1 Being = Group)
    Best OotS Character as a mythological or historical figure
    Best OotS Group as mythological or historical figures.

    There can be only one…Best Overall award.

    And, of course, the Roland’s Choice Award will go to the avatarist's creation that most appeals to my, admittedly whimsical, sensibilities.

    Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you are trying to enter in. (If there seems to be some question about whether a given figure is historical or mythical, you pick where you'd like to enter it.)

    Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what your entry is.

    For example:
    Best Mythological Figure
    Centaur

    (Image by LostInBrittany)

    Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.
    However, you may submit old creations as long as they have never been entered into an Iron Avatar Thread before. *It does not have to be something made specifically for this thread.

    All entries must be completed by Friday, December 1st, at 12 am EST. *That is Thursday evening, Friday morning at midnight U.S. Eastern Standard Time.

    Sorry for the show-off, I am preparing a Greek themed webcomic for a bit more than a month, and I've done quite a lot of drawing. I guess I've already posted too much, if you want to see more you can go to my blog

    I guess that I should place my avatars "out of contest", to not let the number of contributions scare anyone wanting to participate.

    What do you think?

    I'm going to try re-installing Inkscape so I can compete here.

    Also, the irony of dressing up the OoTS as the "Gods of the East" that they never heard of just struck me.

    "Who am I supposed to be again?" Hehe.

    Well it says Europe, and the Celts were in Europe. So I'm going to go on a limb and say they are.

    Sneak, I like that Belkar/Aten. Just thinking, each of the rays were hands reaching down to earth, so why not put a dagger in each hand rather than have them pointing at him? Just a thought, it's still an interesting (and kinda worrying) idea.
