April Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

April 2018

GUIDELINES:
On the first of each month a subject, concept or idea will be posted in a thread entitled Fantasy Science Fiction Monthly Challenge and Chat.

All entries must be new original artworks for this challenge in any style or genre of Fantasy or Science Fiction done in any medium, 2D or 3D.
Join in the discussion about the project - it's friendly and fun to learn how others are coping/struggling/thriving!!! But no visual images! Help can be gained from asking but also from looking for resource materials elsewhere such as the Reference Image Library or best of all your own wonderful imagination!
A 'reveal' date for all is 21th of the month - that gives us a little over 3 weeks to make the work, plus few extra days for latecomers, feel free to post till the end of the month, then a new Challenge will be posted.

Please post the finished artwork on this thread at that time.

The Challenge this month is "Historical Monsters"

This Challenge idea was suggested by Virginia (vmrs).

So create a fantastic creature of myth, legend or lore!

Re: April Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Oo! thank you, I love history.

I was just at the Lincoln Museum in Springfield on Friday. They had a lot of very realistic looking mannequins, was creeping my husband out.

I was the Hoover Library, a couple weeks ago (my husband is on a sightseeing thing).

This is going to be interesting!

Re: April Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

A clarification, please. History is my hobby, and when I think of historical monsters, I think of Caligula, Nero, Attila, Hitler, etc. Would a human monster be acceptable, or just fabulous monsters? Bill wants me to do the Lernean hydra, which would be easy, but I want to be sure.

Well, if YOU don't want the Lernean Hydra, there may be those who do

Susie, funny Bill made this very same comment in the challenge idea thread at the end of last year.
So for clarification, Creatures, of myth, legend and lore....
not real human monsters.

Well, he sure didn't know the answer when I asked him. He's had a drink or two since then, as he likes to say. Okay, I will take the hydra.

Oh, OK. I was going to do DRACULA, standing over Lucy as she lies in bed. I figured that he was the most famous "monster" in history....Bram Stoker based him on Vlad Dracul, The Impaler.

But since he looks human (and my second choice was Elizabeth Bathory....same problem....) I'll go for the beastial monsters of ancient lore as prompted.

Oh I GOT IT!!!! A few years ago I was doing some artwork on ancient Japanese monster myths and I did a few like THE WET WOMAN below....but there is one heinous frightful Asian folklore creature of horror that I haven't done and that will be my contribution for this month.

Hm, I'll have to think about this one for a while. Not really into scary things these days. Maybe Cerberus at nap time?

I just googled mythological monsters for some inspiration. Woody, I hope you're not painting a shrime.

Re: April Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Many Creatures are half human and half ...something else.
Those all work.
Also any old school movie monsters work too!
Woody Universal made a ton of great old monster movies and Dracula will be fine.
Michelle cute monsters are fine also, whatever works for you.
Bill and Susie I will be doing "Historical Figures" with a twist as a later Challenge that's why the clarification on this.

How about a Sirène? I just killed a bunch of them in Baldur's Gate, and they are tough! (They cast Dire Charm and then shoot you with poison arrows)

Cool Re: April Fantasy and Sci-Fi Art Monthly Challenge and Chat!

Those are Lightning Arrows, silly.

Okay, got started this afternoon. I doodled a sketch on copy paper at work, and have transferred it to poster board. It's gonna be awesome.
