April COTM - 2018
« on: April 01, 2018, 07:56:21 AM »
Thank you to read all the text to find the challenge parameters:



April is the first full month for Spring, a moment where Nature can be magical in eyes of many with renewal of plants after the "dark season". It's also the time where animals think to their families - maybe also the reason for why it's the National Pet Month in United Kingdom.

What is more apropos for the season than to show magic and animals at the same time?
Challenge this month will ask you to show wizard(s) and/or witch(es) with their familiar. They can be outside or inside, all places are welcome, but familiar must be fantasy animals.


Your entries must not be entered in ANY contest elsewhere. Images must be new or reworked from an earlier one.
You may enter until 3 times by participant.

The General Rules of the COTM that apply in each and every month are by HERE. Please read those as well.

This Challenge will run from April 1st to Monday April 30th until midnight US - EST at which time it will be closed for submissions.

So welcome in COTM for April: "Magic and pet"!

The gallery is HERE

That is usually what happens to me when I start a picture.

If work was easy and fun, we'd call it vacation instead of work.

My wild guess would be any other type of animal that is not "run of the mill" so dragons, magical creatures maybe Kin-ri, unicorns, alicorns, come to mind but let us see if Aelin agrees and can maybe expound on the topic.

Yes you're right. I don't want to see a 'normal' animal (cat, dog, mouse...) - just unusual :smile:

What happens if I do a "Frankenstein" job on a normal cat for instance and add wings and other things, would that then qualify?

I also guess then that the premise of a new manga I am reading, would not qualify then.

The wizard is a demon and her familiar is a normal human male

How many times in a day do you see a winged cat? :pervy: With wings, it's no more a normal cat, so he can enter in the contest yes.

Nope, no humans like familiar  :tearlaugh: But for witch/wizard you make as you wish.  :spring:
