The One Cat, One Fruit, One Clock Contest

Panthera by $chix0r

The deviantART Stock Project with Fotolia challenges you to combine one regular Cat, one regular Fruit and one regular Clock into something amazing, funny or incredibly ridiculous.

You must use one each of the specific cats, clocks and fruit provided in the asset pack. Your entry can originate in any medium! These are stock pictures. You can trace them, draw them, photomanipulate them, stack them, cook them or even collage them!

Why three random categories and not ones that "go" together? Because if there wasn't a challenge it wouldn't be a contest and if it didn't require you to be creative it wouldn't be dA!

RIFT Create a Colossus Contest

Bosses are the biggest, baddest, and strongest enemies in any video game. They control hordes of monsters, rule the land, and they usually take a lot of skill to defeat. We're challenging you to create a new colossus
(a boss) for the new massively multiplayer online role-playing game, RIFT.

You're traveling through Telara as a bright light appears. A massive rift opens up and monsters start invading. Your team fights to protect their land. As they continuously battle the invading monsters, a massive, 10-story colossus appears.

deviantART is challenging artists to answer the question: What does this colossus look like in RIFT?

Surviving past the apocalypse, one of their own, #9 (voiced by Elijah Wood), emerges and displays leadership qualities that may help them survive and possibly even thrive.
