Only your own original creatures. This means no Pokemon, no existing animals, no creatures of lore, etc...

No humanoid creatures.

There's tons of cool WIP's in the challenge thread.

Besides, maybe people are just taking their time so they get it just *perfect* for one of their favorite challenges.

I don't know if this is a big vacation week or it's just me, but I don't see many entries posted to the gallery or in the cue yet.  There's usually a few by now.  I know there's still a lot of time, but I was hoping for a lot since this is almost the coolest challenge ever.  Maybe I'm just a little concerned.  I want to see some of these things...lol

My flipping external hard drive has collapsed on me. I can no longer access the entry I was working on and have presumably lost it. :( Was looking pretty cool as well. Very very frustrating. Annoyed! That's one competition I couldn't enter because I didn't read the rules properly and another I lost the work for.

Bah.

Maybe. :O

And yes it is an awesome challenge. The first I might enter in which I don't care if I I'm a big fat loser. =[

(I don't like green ribbons.)

Glad someone found it worth a smile ;) I challenge someone to draw the creature I placed as non-humanoid!

@jiipm: Read the definition of a humanoid from wikipedia (which IS btw linked in the challenge post).

Simply put, anything that reminds you of a human is banned.

If you still don't understand, I drew you a complex diagram [LINK TO IMG].

This, sir, is AWESOME! As lollige implied, please give a definition of a non-humanoid?

Nice idea, this one. No need to draw willies or anything. I'm without my precious graphics tablet this week and will be awfully busy, but I'm hoping that I can get something done in time. It's such a fun contest and gives so much freedom that's it's one I'd get a kick out of entering.

I'm a lil' concerned about how people will depict the genders >__<,

I might try this one, unrestricted colors are kinda my thing.

Cool challenge!

Great! I love creating my own creatures.

I remember I've hold a contest with almost the exact same rules, now I can join one. :D

This is the coolest challenge ever.

Heh, nice title!

I think I understand, but to prevent problems (like on the scene thing), how about writing a bit about what your definition of humanoid is?
