Mythical Creature: Moon Rabbit/Jade Rabbit
>>Click Here for Moon Rabbit Wiki<<

According to legend, Chang'e and her husband Houyi were immortals living in heaven. One day, the ten sons of the Jade Emperor transformed into ten suns, causing the earth to scorch. Having failed to order his sons to stop ruining the earth, the Jade Emperor summoned Houyi for help. Houyi, using his legendary archery skills, shot down nine of the sons, but spared one son to be the sun. The Jade Emperor was obviously not pleased with Houyi's solution to save the earth: nine of his sons were dead. As punishment, the Jade Emperor banished Houyi and Chang'e to live as mere mortals on earth.

Seeing that Chang'e felt extremely miserable over her loss of immortality, Houyi decided to journey on a long, perilous quest to find the pill of immortality so that the couple could be immortals again. At the end of his quest he met the Queen Mother of the West who agreed to give him the pill, but warned him that each person would only need half the pill to become immortal.

Houyi brought the pill home and stored it in a case. He warned Chang'e not to open the case and then left home for a while. Chang'e became too curious: she opened up the case and found the pill just as Houyi was returning home. Nervous that Houyi would catch her discovering the contents of the case, she accidentally swallowed the entire pill. She started to float into the sky because of the overdose. Although Houyi wanted to shoot her in order to prevent her from floating further, he could not bear to aim the arrow at her. Chang'e kept on floating until she landed on the Moon.

While she became lonely on the Moon without her husband, she did have company. A jade rabbit, who manufactured elixirs, also lived on the Moon.

My entry for the Splice Create-A-Creature Contest, because why not. Monsters and freaky critter mash-ups are sort of my bread and butter, ya know? Like heck I'm not giving it a go.

This fella here is a splice-up (?) of a fruit bat, a ring-tailed lemur and an octopus. I don't know what you'd call something like that, so I just call him Carl. Carl would be happy to relieve you of any unwanted mangoes or papaya you might have sitting around. Though really, any fruit will do. He's not picky.

Awww, lookit his ugly widdle face.

This is my submission for the 8th Evil Ex Contest. I don't want to say much. I think the piece should speak for itself. Big thanks to my team for your help. Enjoy!

(Shameless self advertising) Please help me spread my design <3! VOTE by clicking "I'd Wear This!"

Here's my second Hoodie, check it out: It's black! [link]
AND my 3rd design!
[link]

Here's a Bigger sample of it : [link]

Are you prepared for some classic adventuring? Grab your map! Get that trusty sword of choice and... don't forget your potions! Everything else you can grab at your local item store.

For all us RETRO Adventurers out there! Who doesn't like all those old time RPGs?

This design would look great on black as much as white. Or any other colour for that matter.


Designing for both men and women, boys and girls is always tricky so I tried my best to keep this neutral.
Also redesigned this about 7 times before I was pleased.

2012 GrahamSymmons
Created for the "Bring Your Type to Life" contest.
I created the type by using Ulead particle plugin [link], gradually building up the letters to make them look like blood. I created the two fractals and background in Mandelbulb 3D. The discarded fishing net and the dolphins I created in Photoshop.

S.O.S. SAVE OUR SOULS! SAVE OUR SEAS! SAVE OUR SELVES!
