ahoy

i know what some of you may think here, "well, my skill level isn't going to win me anything here"

my friend, that is not the case in this event. ALL entries will be have the same amount of chance, the final winner is not based on how well the drawing or writing is done. the winner will be RANDOM. you are asked to do your best because you owe it to yourself for a good piece of work. The final piece will remain your own property, im just trying to get some activities going here. XD

you need to do one of the following to quality as an entry.

1. a drawing of a lamia in any media (traditional, digital, photo-manip, also welcome)

2. a short story involving a lamia. preferably no longer than 1 page.


there are a few versions of the lamia monster, what i am looking for is the one that is top half human, and lower half snake. now most of these are portrayed as female, but if you are up to it, feel free to make a male one.

also regarding the hair, you are free to make it snake hair or normal hair.

if you are a cosplayer or have other talents not included in drawing or writing, i will accept other ways of making as entry as well. comment with your idea on how you want to make your entry.

you have until October 1st for last entry. one or two day late is fine. but no later than 3 days.

submit your entry here as a comment once you are done. one entry per person.

ask if you have more questions

there shall be 3 winners.

first place = 1 year of membership

2nd and 3rd, 3 months of membership

good luck to you all!

I hope I don't sound like a nudge or anything, but...
When will we know the results of the contest?
Will the results be posted in your journal, or will you PM the winners?

I'm sorry I'm so late! I know I missed it, and it's not the best I've ever done (terrible coloring duh), but I wanted to finish her - because I made her for you... [link]

though she fits in really well to a current AU story I have - so you did me a favor too!

Hi Wen-M, I have a question. I wikipedia'd a lamia to see what it was, and some of the art on there shows them with still part human legs and some snake skin wrapped around the waist and arm... Could I do something a little more different like that, or do you want just a snake bottom half? Thanks! :D

Also, as a traditional artist with much to learn, I'd really like some constructive criticism and advice, especially on water-coloring techniques.
Please and thank you.
