Thank You to Everyone who entered the Artwork Contest! There are only 2 chapters that No One attempted and they are listed below. I am extending the contest for these two chapters only until July, 28 2013. Please feel free to contact me with any questions via email at JPRusso@AchenePress.com I looked forward to your creative submissions!
Chapter 18 – Please sketch a Harpy from the description below:
There in the doorway, stood a sight I will never forget. An over-sized scroll was being used as a crutch for a creature that didn’t look like it should be standing at all. An old decrepit woman peered over the top of the scroll. Only one of her eyes opened wide, the other looked as if the eyelid was too heavy with warts to open.
I glanced down, wondering how she was standing. She didn’t have complete legs! Her entire lower half from under two wrinkly knees belonged to a bird! Over-sized bird feet, complete with a couple broken talons supported her worn out frame. She was a hideous sight.
With the same slow pace, the creature maneuvered through the doorway, like death walking. Once through the door, two leathery brown wings unfurled from her back! There were hooked talons on top of the flesh in between the vein-riddled webbing. The crowd cringed. Then, in a bat-like fashion, Ekadenc slammed the hooks into the wood, creating the peg-leg sound. Balancing on her clawed wings, she swung her legs forward, dragging her talons across the floor, like a creepy walker.
Google mythology Harpy as a creative jumping off point, but I really would love the human part to look like an old lady 😉
Chapter 22 – Sketch the description below:
A corner of the volcano was pried up with a giant trident. A serpent arm, which was pinned underneath with a handful of vipers as fingers, was gripping the based and lifting the mountain off of his terrifying frame. Lava spewed out of the volcano in every direction! (An extremely terrifying Monster is trying to escape being pinned under the volcano with the help of the trident)
Google Mythology’s Typhon just to get an idea of what others think he looks like.
