Only your own original creatures. This means no Pokemon, no existing animals, no creatures of lore, etc...

No humanoid creatures.

There's tons of cool WIP's in the challenge thread.

Besides, maybe people are just taking their time so they get it just *perfect* for one of their favorite challenges.

I don't know if this is a big vacation week or it's just me, but I don't see many entries posted to the gallery or in the cue yet.  There's usually a few by now.  I know there's still a lot of time, but I was hoping for a lot since this is almost the coolest challenge ever.  Maybe I'm just a little concerned.  I want to see some of these things...lol

My flipping external hard drive has collapsed on me. I can no longer access the entry I was working on and have presumably lost it. :( Was looking pretty cool as well. Very very frustrating. Annoyed! That's one competition I couldn't enter because I didn't read the rules properly and another I lost the work for.


Dr D (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 5/19/2009 11:31

Maybe. :O

And yes it is an awesome challenge. The first I might enter in which I don't care if I I'm a big fat loser. =[

(I don't like green ribbons.)

Glad someone found it worth a smile ;) I challenge someone to draw the creature I placed as non-humanoid!

No furries.

smk (Level 6 Hitman) @ 5/19/2009 05:47

@jiipm: Read the definition of a humanoid from wikipedia (which IS btw linked in the challenge post).

Simply put, anything that reminds you of a human is banned.

If you still don't understand, I drew you a complex diagram [LINK TO IMG].

jiipm (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/19/2009 05:00

This, sir, is AWESOME! As lollige implied, please give a definition of a non-humanoid?

sharprm (Level 4 Deputy) @ 5/18/2009 16:35

 The creatures Chuck Norris forgot to kill ...

TheInquisitor (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 5/18/2009 11:18

Nice idea, this one. No need to draw willies or anything. I'm without my precious graphics tablet this week and will be awfully busy, but I'm hoping that I can get something done in time. It's such a fun contest and gives so much freedom that's it's one I'd get a kick out of entering.

tripnfelt (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 5/18/2009 08:42

I'm a lil' concerned about how people will depict the genders >__<,

I might try this one, unrestricted colors are kinda my thing.

Hegni (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/18/2009 06:54

Cool challenge! 

Reo (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 5/18/2009 05:49

I agree with the rest of the guys great challenge!

Kyata (Level 3 Stalker) @ 5/18/2009 04:15

Great! I love creating my own creatures.

I remember I've hold a contest with almost the exact same rules, now I can join one. :D

hordus (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/18/2009 02:38

I just like this one =D

the size of the window is just perfect =D

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 5/18/2009 01:28

Neat challenge!

cure (Level 11 Godfather) @ 5/18/2009 01:12

This is the coolest challenge ever.

Quake (Level 2 Hired Gun) @ 5/18/2009 00:32

so, no humans?

;p and i think this i the best challenge for around a month ;]

Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 5/18/2009 00:30

Heh, nice title!

I think I understand, but to prevent problems (like on the scene thing), how about writing a bit about what your definition of humanoid is?
