From the depths of Greek mythology, and a lack of headmodelling-skills, I bring you…Monkey-o-Taur!

Before putting my entry online, I’d like to disqualify @ndy for being too good :stuck_out_tongue:

From Norse mythology.


Poseidon, God of the sea


another pic for fun!


here is my entry:

She is a muse, and muses are the daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne. They are known for the music of their song, which brings joy to any who hear it. There are nine Muses, each with her own specialty: Clio (History), Urania (Astronmy), Melpomene (Tragedy), Thalia (Comedy), Terpsichore (Dance), Calliope (Epic Poetry), Erato (Love Poetry), Polyhymnia (Songs to the Gods), Euterpe (Lyric Poetry).

Ok, well, here’s my submission.
This is the first time I have ever participated in one of these things… I’m rather excited. :slight_smile:

Modeled and rendered in Blender. Small bit of post production done in the GIMP (mostly tweaking color and contrast). Oh, and incase you couldn’t tell: it’s a dragon. :slight_smile:
Also, you should view the picture with a properly gamma corrected monitor, otherwise the image will appear too dark. I’ll post a gamma corrected one in a bit.

EDIT: I just realized that (I think) I missed the deadline. Oh well. At least I tried. Apparently I found out about the contest when it was only a few hours to the deadline anyway… timezones always confuse me.

Well, even though I missed the deadline, here’s the image for those of you without gamma corrected monitors:
