New Hybrids! (Moonlight Pony Contest)

You guys have got to check this out. I was lucky enough to find these hybrid concepts in the KingsIsle press kit under the Wintertusk folder!

Behold the Bullrilla! A perfect blend of bull and gorilla!


Haha! I can't wait to equip one of those.

Presenting the Rhinorc! All orc with a touch of rhino.


Love that flower. Concept art from KingsIsle is the best!

. . .

Ok, I can't do it. Too many of you are on high alert for April Fool's Day this year.

APRIL FOOLS!

Those pictures come from the talented NinjaBee Staff on their art blog. I saw them a few weeks ago and couldn't resist slapping a KingsIsle logo on them because they do look an awful lot like KI's art style. You should check out some of the other wild hybrid combinations they came up with on their site because they are a perfect example of the kind of "hybrid" I'm looking for!

How to Enter:
To enter, you must draw/photoshop/edit/create a picture of a "new" Wizard101 hybrid of your own creation and send it to thefriendlynecromancer@gmail.com.

Rules:
Please keep your image in a .jpg format and try to keep it under one megabyte in size . . . in fact half a megabyte or less would be great. It doesn't matter if it's scanned or a photo, just find a way to put it into a .jpg and send it to thefriendlynecromancer@gmail.com.

Winners will be notified over e-mail and on my blog on April 9th, 2011.

All entries must be recevied by April 7th, 2011 to be considered.

Please also put the name of your Wizard101 character in the e-mail, so we can give you proper credit. :)

I have a total of 15 moonlight ponies to give away:
- All entries regardless of quality will be entered into a raffle to win one of five moonlight ponies.
- The ten best new hybrids will be featured on my blog and each will receive a moonlight pony.

Considerations:
Don't worry if you're not that great of an artist. Just give it your best shot because we'll also be judging on creativity, awesomeness, feasibility, and comedy factor besides natural talent.

The judges will be me, uber wife, Kyle, and Amber.

Best of luck! I can't wait to see what hybrids you come up with!

Happy dueling!

That Rhiorc thing reminds me of the main villains minion's from Spyro: Year of the Dragon.

Don't you see the resemblance? (Sorta?)

can we use the computer paint program to make it?

Tesh said...

Nice. :) If I had more time, I'd definitely try a full-on painted version of a few ideas I've had for mixed up critters.

WHAT DO WE PUT IN THE SUBJECT LINE?

Stingite said...

@anon friends: yes, you can use paint and just put whatever you want for the subject. Thanks!

Attention Friendly Necromancer. I will not be here on Saturday, as I will be on a boy scout campout, but I will be here Sunday night so I can get my mount then if you have to give it to me.
