Welcome to...
Iron Avatarist

First, I'd like to introduce you to our judges...

(The final lineup subject to change. As noted elsewhere, Wukei is on a bit of a hiatus doing real life rpg art stuff right now.)

This week's theme is Iconic D&D/Fantasy Monsters! Any Monsters that just scream to you D&D or Fantasy are fair game!

That means you will be drawing Monsters in the OOTS style and/or drawing characters from OotS universe cosplay (dress up) as Monsters.

And of course, there is going to be a First through Third place of the following:

Best Monster
Best Group of Monsters (>1 Monsters = Group)*
Best OotS Character as a Monster
Best OotS Group as a Group of Monsters
Best Overall

And don't forget the Super-Secret Guest Judge’s Choice Award to the avatarist's creation that most appeals to a Super-Secret Guest Judge.

*Let me clarify further. More than one monster in the image is a Group. It doesn't matter if there is more than one of the same monster or a collection of different monsters. Victims and bystanders don't count. Two monster fighting each other do count as a Group. It's your entry so while I'm the final arbiter, I'm willing to go along with any reasonable categorization.

Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you are trying to enter in.

Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what your entry is.

IE:
Best Monster
Red Dragon

(Image by Chris The Pontifex)

Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.
However, you may submit old creations as long as they have never been entered into an Iron Avatar Thread before. *It does not have to be something made specifically for this thread.

All entries must be completed by Friday, September 15th, at 12 am EST. *That is Friday evening, Saturday morning at midnight U.S. Eastern Standard Time.

Ooh. If I had any idea/had any skill in doing anything remotely more artistic than painting miniatures, I would totally try this.

However, being artistically inept, I'll just sit back and watch and cheer people on.

Yay people! Go! I believe in you! Good luck!

Best Monster: Aboleth

http://i75.photobucket.com/albums/i311/ChimeraHybrid/Oots%20MM/Aboleth.gif

It's done in relative size to an oots sized adventurer. If it needs to be smaller, I'll fix it.

Best Monster Group: Shocker Lizards

Wait, can I do my werewolves? I've got quite a few.

LoopyZebra

Like the critters Lykan, but shouldn't the shocker lizards have some electricity shooting about?

Another thing, can the monster be of our own creation, or can they just be published creatures?

Lykan
2006-09-02, 01:49 AM
Just because they're shocking stuff doesn't mean they're constantly generating electricity...

Best Monster: Vargouille

In honour of our last session, here's a frost worm complete with gnomesicle.
Best Monster
Frost Worm
http://i67.photobucket.com/albums/h287/serpentine16/Frostworm.jpg

Would it count as a group if I do the characters as well? None of them are technically monsters... (except maybe Sar'pynestae, the tiefling).

The unfortunate commoner is not a monster.

Doubt I'll win anything with this, but its worth a go :)

Could you make a smaller sized aboletha, Lycan? I'd love to add it to the list of psionic avs.

And I second Sneak on the animated object ;D

Roland St. Jude
2006-09-02, 12:46 PM
Let me answer a few questions here...

First, Lykan wanted to know if his Shocker Lizards are a Group. Yes. I've clarified the rules a bit on this...


*Let me clarify further. More than one monster in the image is a Group. It doesn't matter if there is more than one of the same monster or a collection of different monsters. Victims and bystanders don't count. Two monster fighting each other do count as a Group. It's your entry, so while I'm the final arbiter, I'm willing to go along with any reasonable categorization.
Second, LoopyZebra asks...

...Another thing, can the monster be of our own creation, or can they just be published creatures?

They can be published or invented. If it's a fantasy monster it's in. If you wanna make a fearsome Duckwolf, knock yourself out. *;)

Finally, Serpentine asks...

Would it count as a group if I do the characters as well? None of them are technically monsters... (except maybe Sar'pynestae, the tiefling).
My gut reaction is that the addition of PCs does not make it a Monster Group. But this is a judgment call, do as you will.

Lykan
2006-09-02, 01:58 PM
What about my question about the werewolves?

LoopyZebra
2006-09-02, 01:59 PM
If you wanna make a fearsome Duckwolf, knock yourself out. ;)


I was going to do something else, but...

Best Monster
Dreaded Duckwolf of the Dead, Damned, and Doomed, Devisor of Dastardly Alliteration

Roland St. Jude
2006-09-02, 03:14 PM

I'm not sure why you'd think you can't?

However, you may submit old creations as long as they have never been entered into an Iron Avatar Thread before. *It does not have to be something made specifically for this thread.
As long as you haven't entered them in IA before, and you made them, you can submit them.

@^ Nice Duckwolf of Doom. Now we just need VT or Fax or D1 to stat him out. :P

Specifically, this is Bheri, Wren, Howler, Kuro, Raga, Joan of Arf, Phil, Trius (Dromite), and Kravas, the characters in the Misadventures of the Adventurous Worgs campaign (currently in progress over on the pBp games boards). I hope you like them.

Abardam, a certain person who also frequents these boards and I were earlier discussing the fact that Balors are hardly ever depicted wreathed in flames, as they're described. I suppose it'd get in the way of those nifty weapons, though, so oh well.

2006-09-06, 04:45 AM
If this particular Balrog is the Durin's Bane one then it seems to be missing a certain flaming sword in addition to it's 'many-thonged whip (of flames)'. Can't be the proper Balrog without the proper weaponry eh?

Also does is it only occur to me or is the whole flame theme spread on rather thick with Balrog's, it's all flames this and flames that and 'let's shove in some shadow's too, don't want them to think we're fixated on fire now'.

On another note I don't know why or indeed how I didn't see this point before now but the all that the Balor is is just a freakin' huge rip-off of Balrogs.

No, not extended - I just created it with a two week running time. *:) IA Contests are now running for (roughly) two weeks, with a new one starting the day the old one closes. That way: 1) there will always be a contest running for people to draw for, and 2) the results can be compiled before the next contest closes.

Heh, thanks. I know that my treant was quite simple, while those that actually won had, apart from good ideas behind the pictures, also awesome and detailed art. This contest was probably the biggest Iron Avatarist one so far, and I am a bit surprised that, for example, Lykan's Aboleth also haven't won anything. Okay, I had a point when I started to write this but now forgot what it was supposed to be, so I'll stop now.

:o Wait, that's gold! ... and so shiny... Thank you so very much and well done everyone else.

Particularly happy to get Alarra's choice too. Inflates my ego something grand.

A little disappointed though, that I never had time to complete my second entry. Maybe I'll be able to finish it off this weekend and post it in the showcase...


And back to work I go!
