almost forgot lol... here you go i'll give two descripts from two different chapters to make it a bit easier

His glowstick illuminated a rigid gray leg. The muscles flexed underneath the exoskeleton to click it's three toe claws against the ground in sequence. His light traced the way up the animal's leg to it's thorax. Erica noticed that the thorax sprouted four arms, two on each side, with two long dual claws and double jointed palms. The light continued up the thorax to the mutant's head. Long mandibles opened to a toothless mouth. The light reflected off of each compound eye a hundred times over.

A small lid flashed over the eyes with a predatory quickness.


that's the first encounter and yes there's action but i'll leave that for some other time Razz

However, the real surprise for Amanda was when she topped the hill. The downward slope was littered with corpses. Most were in pieces and she really couldn't find two halves that matched. The green grass was soaked in a light red film.

"Well, that looks like a pleasant graveyard," Aaron muttered.

Talon kneeled and fingered the grass. He brought his rifle around to follow his survey of the bloody field as he ran his fingers across the grass.

"What do you see, Sergeant Gillispie?" Amanda asked as she approached the brown-haired man.

"This isn't a graveyard," he replied. "This footprint is anything but human."

She glanced at the blood soaked mud where his finger rested. The print had three long toes and wierd ridges. She quickly looked back toward the tall buildings on either side of the tracks.

Aaron looked up from the footprind and said, "Are you suggesting that this is a hunting ground?"

Talon stood brandishing his rifle, "If so, are we the hunted or the hunters?"

April shook her head and replied, "Let us hope we are neither and continue moving, shall we?"

Amanda nodded causing Aaron to step over a mangled corpse and begin to cross the body scattered clearing. The group split again and followed.

As they came closer to the end of the field the ground clipped to an open road. Open aside for the fact that there was a massive crowd of.....

...As Aaron continued to pour a steady stream of laser blasts into the mob, Amanda felt something strange tug at the edge of her senses. She turned to investigate and spotted another mutant.

It was clicking it's front four arms together on the edge of the nearest building's roof. It was partially blocked from her view by a shining street lamp but she almost made out an insectoid like head before it disappeared from the rooftop....

...It leaned forward using it's four arms to heave ... in it's way over it's head. One could only tell where the mutant was by the flying body parts that was once part of the angry mob. ((yes i'm leaving out details Razz))

Aaron tried to get a clear shot with his cannon at the approaching mutant but the massive bobbing of heads kept him from being able to see the oncoming terror.....

... Aaron comntinued to pour cannon blasts .......... He visually tracked the progress of the mutant through the mob. When it turned to dart up the hill at him he turned his cannon onto the group..... it would emerge from.

The mutant was smarter. In an explosion of thrown corpses, the larger insectoid sprang from the mob toward the male wizard.

"Shoot it!" Amanda yelled, as Aaron rotated the cannon upwards to track the insectoid. He fired once, Missed. Twice. Missed. Three times. Four. The mutant raised it's right two arms to strike the wizard as it began to descend.

The next bolt caught the six-legged insectoid square in it's thorax halting it's forward momentum and dropping it like a stone to the ground. It landed hard on it's back and twisted into an irregular posture.

"Is it dead?" Talon inquired.


Although the description is more spaced out among the action there it's not hard to make out. Adding the two descriptions together let me see what you come up with Very Happy

loving the torso but you missed a detail. it has six legs giving it a total of 10 appendages. i know it gets confusing but it was one hell of a virus that messed this thing up. I love the head for it though. not bad work at all and the claws are really good, much better than the concept drawing i did.

not bad bdrix.... can you do a bit lower on the picture to show a bit of uniform. i'd like to see how well you are with proportions. I see you are using book 3 which no one has used yet and it's looking really good. the goatee is pretty realistic... let me see what else you can do

May I enter? I read the first page of this contest...it says notification of entry was like, last year.... O_o Anyway, your characters sound interesting, I'd like to have a shot at drawing them!!

Okay, I did a really quick practice of Samantha. I wanted to make sure I was going along the right lines character-wise before I went all out with detail, shading, highlighting, painting etc!!! (in the final copy the lips won't be outlined like that, same with the eyes, will look more natural. Aaaand, there'll be a hood instead of a nun-collar Wink Shadow will be cast from the flame at the front. is this the right sort of magic?
And sorry about the purple-ness. My scanner is bad with sketches.)

Final Entries: This is to be done in full color and paint. you can submit up to 3 of each cover but no more than that. I'm going to warn you. These are going to take a while.


Book 1. This will be fairly simple. The background layout is a bed of stars with jovarake's gunblade in the center. Faded into the stars is Young Jovarake's face. read book one description for clarification.

Book 2. The front cover is more of a collage of the characters in fighting poses. Each covered in speckled blood of green and red. (Don't go overboard with it lol) Center i would like Jovarake. Somewhere on the page i'd like the mutant i described. Amanda will be behind Jovarake. A young police Lieutenant named Roane Isly will be holding a (what looks like a shotgun) (guess i'll have to describe him huh?) And a Police Captain from the same planet named Charles Wester will also be on the cover with a cigarette in his mouth. I'll describe him too.

At the very bottom of that page i would like you to fade in a gruesomely depicted scene of undead humans walking.

Book 3. Jovarake standing on the right, gunblade drawn, facing away from Samatha on the left, her sword drawn. (don't forget the scar!!! Scar was earned in book 1) In the middle i want you to fade in a picture of X to the background. You are free to pick your own background here but a background that fits a futuristic world would be more suitable, considering Jovarake's home planet is the setting and plot for the book. However you are able to use streets that fit book 2's setting. Or pick your own background...



Any questions?
