    Default Contest #17 - Boom-Flurry (again)!

    Well, now that the fundraiser is done for another year, and we've got some new blood around here (that I hope we'll get to hear from!) I thought we'd give this one another shot.

    The article for Boom-Flurry can be found here.

    As usual, if you haven't already, please read a little about the contests here and the contest posting guidelines here.

    This contest will be open until July 7, 2009. Good luck, and have fun!
    Winner: boehmke

    I have drawn for this contest before but I couldn't have finished it before the contest's ending. I don't know if it is ok, to subscribe this one. Because I've posted it at my Facebook profile, but it is here:

    Oh sweet! They're both cool!

    This looks like it might have been worth the wait.

    Haha, I know me too, after doodling furiously awhile I was like wait...what the heck am I drawing again? THEN I checked out the link again. Luckily I'd listened to Wolves of the Calla recently and remembered more or less what the cactus things were like. A good excuse to doodle Andy too.

    Dags, I was just checking the Concordance, to see if it mentioned the colour of the cacti, and it's spelt Boom not Bloom in there

    Nuh uh! The book says, bloom, I think. I'll have to check it later - I'm out of town at the moment.

    It was the cactuses they were talking about, or rather that Slightman was talking about. He called them boom-flurry, and wanted to know what had gotten them all fashed.
    "Almost certainly more rock-cats, sai," Andy said in his complacent, slightly prissy voice.


    I found this on the Internet where someone had uploaded the book (?)

    edit: I guess I didn't see the official art wall spoiler rules. OK, unspoiled.

    Yep, I just double checked. You guys are right. MY BAD! I've corrected the article, and since this was my fault, I'm going to add another week to the initial run of the contest. Contest will now end July 7. Sorry!

    Nice one, Ricky! I also appreciate the victim and the fact that he has spurs on.

    Thanks! I'm glad that you were able to notice the spurs. I was worried that it would come out to blotchy. Guess not though.

    The prize is that your entry gets displayed in Towerpedia and...I think you still get a bracelet?

    Ricky, that's brilliant! I love everyone's styles
