    So no "cartoony" concept are allowed. It should be realistic and realistic only? Or well, as realistic mythology concept can be.

    WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to open

    seriously, concept art competition? that's how I see it.

    Hiveworkshop Concept art competition #7 = The subject: hey draw anything you want just for fun... I mean, something original :D cause anyway you can draw everything you want, as long as its from after 1000 B.C and before 200... but it has to be original, but! it can be anything! :)))))))))))

    sounds like fun!?! dude, this is no concept art competition, it's just = show us your skills in drawing and fuck the concept, who cares about them anyway?

    do something more precises, like

    ''If a god from Parthenon would create a new creature, what would it be?'' (and we can base ourself from 1 of the X brothers and sisters from the mythology and based a concept on ''what each represents'')

    or like

    ''Draw us a titan, how you picture them in the greek mythology, before the gods were born''

    or like

    ''Draw us a freaking mytology creature from any kind of mythology (Celtic/greek/indian/Inuit) but! it has to be a creature that represents fear! (or something else like, it has to be a underwater creature, or it as to be a creature that can fly).

    Where do you see that?
    I'm far from the person to talk about this BUT, can't something have a realistic enough anatomy and still look cartoonish?

    Guess it sounded more like a statement rather than a question. I meant it to recieve some sort of clarification that. Wasn't sure how it should be read. But that might be true, yes. Thanks for responding.

    I think I'm gonna base it on a folkore tale/mythological tale from my area:

    The Buck Riders were a godless gang of bandits, thieves, and murderers that roamed the districts of Limburg. According to legend, they had sealed a pact with the devil himself; With one slash of his finger he split the earth, forming a hellish chasm. From the burning abyss he hexed up a large number of demonic bucks on which the riders would sear through the skies of 18th century Limburg. This way they were able to pillage and plunder at their liking, able to rapidly attack any house they could spot from the air. The devil of course, evil and cunning as he is, wanted something in return for his conjuring. And after a couple of years, when the buck riders were growing rich and tired of their pillaging, he came to them. He asked them why they had not rode their bucks in a long time. The riders, overconfident with all their riches, answered they had ridden them! And that the fiery fiend had not been paying attention! The devil became furious upon hearing such lies but did not show it. He secretly put another spell on the band of thieves. The moment a rider would mount his buck, it would catch fire and prevent the rider from getting off. So a year later, on one day the group was once again in need of food and gold. They greeted their bucks and prepared to set off into the sky. But as we know, the devil had patiently planned out his scheme and the bucks lit on fire! They burned through the air like meteors and people say they could hear the screams of the buckriders in all of Limburg. Eventually the bucks headed for the large crack in the land from which they came. And the devil greeted his old friends and his new servants with much delight. Even this day you can see the remains of the gate to hell in the landscape. Although some people say it is just a legend...

    (oh im not making this up btw :p
