    Contest Theme : Aberrations
    Contestants are to create a model of an aberration.

    The entry does not require to stick to DnD lore to qualify. In fact, not ANY lore. Any monster/unit that is "frightening and misshapen" or anything that is nightmarish.
    • Please steer clear from making cliched monsters such as simple vampires or zombies or fishmen as they are not aberrations. Nor will you get good points for creativity.
    • Zombies or zombies that have been sewn together(like an abomination in wc) counts as undead and a construct, respectively.
    • Machines and robots are considered as constructs because they have been created by someone. However, this does not mean you cannot have metal parts incorporated in the model.

    [​IMG]

    • If a submission does not follow the model submission rules the creator will be disqualified.

      • An in game screenshot showing your submission in action.
      • The file in the appropriate format.
    • You must show at least one unfinished preview of your submission, before the deadline, as proof that it’s yours.
    • Your submission may not be started/made before the official launch of the contest.
    • Judges may not participate.
    • Your final submission must be bug free.

    Here's my concept. It's a real-life drawing on real paper shot with a cellphone cam so the quality sux. But you can still see the ruff stuff.

    And here's my first WIP. It still needs some polishing though.

    I call it Spawn. It's somewhat like a tadpoleish creature that due to genetic alterations stopped evolving and just grew. With the years and generations it also eventually developed mutations in order to survive in the harsh nature. The only flaw still obtained from the incomplete childhood are the extremely shallow veins (white spots) across it's body.

    They are perfect for this! Yog-Sothoth, Shoggots, Cthulhu himself, Elder things, Mi-go, they're all aberrations!

    This seems like a very interesting contest, too bad I'm not that good at modeling.
