Thanks to all who entered! This one was a real blast. :D


:star: For this contest you'll be creating a griffin of your own design!

Read on for more details!

- A Griffin is a creature of myth that's part bird and part feline. They're usually depicted as qaudripeds with the fore half being more bird-like and the aft half being more feline-like.

- Your griffin must be part feline and part bird.
-- You can pick and existing feline and bird to mix or you can just make up your own entirely.

- Super traditional griffins are often depicted as part eagle and part lion. But you can pick anything you want to combine! Choose any crazy thing you can think of. Examples: Peacock+Liger, Sparrow + Puma, Cockatoo + Ocelot. There's a whole world out there! Have fun with it!

- Feel free to mix it up a bit, too. You can make the front half the cat part and the posterior half the bird, for example.

- You can draw/write about more than one type of griffin if you want to.

- You can include other mythical creatures or even humans in the picture as well, if you want to. But remember the griffin must be the spotlight of attention.

- No fanart. All creations must be your own.

- Do not submit an old work of art. It must be new and created after this contest was put up [March 17th, 2015]

- Do not copy/trace the work of somebody else. Your art must be completely your own.

- You can be as serious or comical as you want.

- Any medium is acceptable. Ex: Sculpture, Digital, traditional, costume... anything!

- Yes, that means writing/literature is allowed.

- ***When you submit your entry to deviantART, PLEASE mention that it's for the contest in this group somewhere in your description. Not because we need more promotion, but because there are a ton of people who submit to the wrong folder and don't even mean to try to enter the contest.
If you don't mention that your illustration is for this contest in the description, it will be removed from the folder.***

- You may have up to two entries this time. But that's the limit.

- Keep it clean. No porn, no really gross stuff. Keep it tasteful. If you have any questions about taste level, send us a note or leave a comment.

- You may enter the contest even if you're not a member. Just be sure to give us a link so we can add it.

- When you're done, post a comment with a link to your entry here, and I'll add it to the list.

- Also! I've created a folder for our new contest in the gallery called, "Contest 16 - Griffins". Be sure to submit there.

-When the contest is over, we'll put up a blog with all the entries on it, and the members will vote on which one they think is best.

- If you have any additional questions, either comment here, note the club, or note the owner, (Zimeta)

Three winners will be chosen by popular vote.
If you're interested in doing a prize request for one or more of the winners, just note or comment here!
If you're willing to donate a subscription to one of the winners, just let us know! ^0^

Just a quick question: Do you accept mythological writings of fiction? I have a few pieces that are mythological in essence, but are of my own creation rather than from any established myth or folkloric tale.

We sure do!

Hello there and thank you for allowing me to join and share my ceramics pieces with the group. :)

I have some more pieces here at Etsy and I also do clayworking tuturials over on Youtube here… if you were so inclined. Have a nice day.
