    Default Contest #22 - Mohaine Desert

    Hile Artlovers!

    The wiki is temporarily disabled whilst we iron out some kinks, but that's no reason for us to stop with Daghain's marvellous art contests

    Next up is the Mohaine Desert, which as you may recall is where we begin our journey with Roland. King describes it as the apotheosis of all deserts, huge, standing to the sky for what might have been parsecs in all directions. White; blinding; waterless; without feature save for the faint, cloudless haze of the mountains which sketched themselves on the horizon and the devil grass which brought sweet dreams, nightmares, death.

    The deadline is Monday 29th November 2010. Submissions to be posted in this thread once they are completed. Good luck!

    Oh no, I forgot all about it. I'm sorry. I really wanted to try to do something but I don't think I'll get to it right away.

    I can do something for this if it was extended by a week. If not, I'll just wait till the next one. I literally just now saw this.

    Isn't it obvious that it's Heather's fault no one has participated yet? You know, her being a Wolf and everything.

    This is mine. Sorry, it's kindof rushed. And yes, I know King describes Mohaine as being "cloudless". I just thought it would add more dynamism.


    (I also have a larger version. I wasn't sure how wide to make it so it wouldn't stretch the page.)

    I need to do more landscapes...

    Canada: Rushed? It's absolutely perfect. Beautiful work.

    Roland would have understood.
