I would really like to enter this one but I'm working on a game mod and the people are waiting for updates and some of them even for a beta version. MAYBE I'll enter if I find enough time for it.

I dont think there are any regulations except the official rules, just bring a jolly spirit and remove that sickening avatar of yours.

thanks for the nice words regarding my avatar

it looks like this when a little larger (the actual drawing is in a3 so it is quite large)

Would be a cool character to have as a 3Dmodel.

Though I dont want the thread to go of topic

It is steampunk, duh! I think you are pretty free to make it sci fi oriented or fantasy oriented as long as you got that feeling of engines and such.

Nice pic, just a little disturbing tho.

Mike, could you explain a little more on that statement? Are you saying that the first part of this challenge will be judged aswell and only the winner/s get to continue on to the second part?
