RESULTS!
 
Our judges for the Fantasy ACTION Contest are:

Myself, Capulet, and Hurricane also provided some commentary to go with our ratings. Entries were mostly judged for the presentation and intensity of their ACTION, as well as general all-around quality and originality.

 

I have decided to award a First Place (Gold) and Second Place (Silver) medal for each category (LEGO, art, and writing). The LEGO category (since it has the most entries) also has a Third Place (Bronze) medal. The others do not. I will PM the first place winners about their prizes, and give the medal icons to the rest of the winners some time soon.
 
Without further ado, the results! The numbers by each entry's name are the average ratings. Judge comments can be found in the spoiler boxes.

WRITING:

Leaning aside from the first bandit's strike with seemingly contemptuous ease, The Timberwolf's blade flicked out to guide the bandit's weapon into the path of the second bandit's slash, entangling the two weapons and leaving both men off-balance for a moment. Twisting aside from a thrust by the third bandit, The Timberwolf shifted its grip, moving its second hand from the hilt to halfway down the estoc's blunt-edged blade —holding the sword as if it were a quarterstaff. Fluidly continuing the spin, The Timberwolf brought the tip of its sword up to parry an overhead chop by the forth bandit, with a twist redirecting the bandit's blade through a loop that put it off to one side. Quickly stepping inside the fourth bandit's guard, The Timberwolf levered the other end of its weapon around to smash the sword's solid steel pommel into the bandit's face —the man reeling back from the blow, clutching at his broken teeth.

FIRST PLACE: Lone Wolf (writing) by Sareth = 8.75

Spoiler
The bandit rider tore straight through the other side of the tent, ripped linen covers now providing them with an excellent view of the chaos in the camp. A dozen mounted raiders had torn in from the silence of the night, smashing their way through the temporary housing the caravan had established as they made a scramble for any valuables they could find. The caravan’s guards, though caught by surprise, were already in their own rush to take up spears and bring down the attackers.

SECOND PLACE: Of A Certain Half-Blood, Part 2 (writing) by Akira/Exan/Siegfried/Grant/Fluttershep = 8.25

Spoiler

The Black Tavern (writing) by TehCoolDawg = 7.25

Spoiler

The Battle of Blackstone Citadel (writing) by SgtOceanus = 5.25

Spoiler

The Price of Victory (writing) by Dalton Westmoore = 4

Hmm yes, the Plague Doctors can't be posed sadly a limitation of the custom outfit, aside from looking back which I could have done but didn't think off.

 

The intended story was that roaming charlatan/quack salver doctors gave sort of wonder medicine to townsfolk and a side effect turned them all (partially) in to animals.

 

I agree that the Mimic scene was a bit empty, I don't have enough smooth tiles to fill out the studs with though and I should probably have made a smaller setting.


Right or wrong, which side are you on, does it even matter if it's on the same coin?

Okay so, first of all, thank you so much and great job to everyone who participated. Yeah, this piece was a bit janky for me. It was my first attempt at coloring something in years, but I'm learning the ropes of it. Also, my sketchbook app doesn't let me color in the image (ugh!). No, I have to make a layer above or below the picture, decrease its opacity, and then do the painting. This all results in a loss of depth of color or detail that's really annoying. I just need to get a better program I guess :P

 

Spoiler

 

Anyway, hope ya'll understand a bit more what's going on now. But besides, having no explanation lets the piece stand on it's own, I guess.

 

 

 

Lol, or Dagoth was just on vacation and too lazy to write anything :P.

 

EDIT: also, Cap and Scorp, thank you so much for picking up on the dead and living worshippers. I was worried nobody would get that.

 

 

Thanks again for allowing me to enter,

Thanks for the extra details, Isundir and Dagoth!

 

I thought yours might be something from TES, Dagoth... because of the name, and what looked like possible Dwemer ruins and glass armor. But it's been so many years since I played Morrowind, I'd forgotten all about those Ascended Sleeper things - I thought it might be one of the "Seekers" from the Dragonborn expansion to Skyrim. The hero's helmet was the main thing throwing me off. :lol: Morrowind had some straaange designs.
