My (last minute) entry for the seventh sanctum tarot card contest! [link]
The Scholar of Destruction:
The Scholar of Destruction usually represents knowledge of an unfortunate event in the future and actively working to prevent this from happening, learning from past mistakes, or selflessness and benevolence.
Reversed it can represent hardwork, logic and great enthusiasm for something which will ultimately lead to disaster.This could be through naivety or even knowingly, but in either case can have serious repercussions. It can also represent self-destructive tendencies or behaviour, obsessiveness, or even megalomania (in an evil-genius kind of way)
The Philosopher of Chains symbolizes the dangers of narrow-minded thinking, and the constraints of the human mind. When upright, it signifies a mental block of some sort on the part of the querent - an obstacle preventing his or her creativity from flourishing. This most commonly manifests as Writer's Block.
The card reversed signifies the opposite - an unfettered, open mind, possibly even chaotic in its lack of restraint. This can mean one of two things: a period of extremely vivid imagination, or a degeneration into madness.
Alternately, it could just be a small rectangle of paper with a chained-up sophist on it.

Anti-Gravity Zealots are a religious order who use anti-gravity devices to allow them to negate the forces of gravity. They use the devices to float above the surface of the earth, as they believe that it brings them closer to heaven and therefore closer to God. Once they have taken their vows and activated their anti-gravity devices they live their lives in the air and never again return to solid ground.

Fusion Class Generator = Anti-gravity Zealot
General Person Generator = This innocent gentleman has large eyes the color of alabaster. His fine, straight, midnight black hair is worn in a style that reminds you of a fluttering flag. He is very tall and has a narrow build. His skin is white. He has bushy eyebrows. His wardrobe is unusual and professional, with a completely blue color scheme.
This was an entry for The Seventh Sanctum's Character contest - link here.
The name randomiser spat out: Midnight Fate
And the Dragonling Randomiser:
This personable female dragonling has round, slit-pupiled eyes the of fine china. She is bald. She has a thin build. Her bony scales are violet. Her face has an inhumanly reptilian look to it. She has a single horn on her forehead. She has bony plates on the side of her head that function as ears. She has human-like hands and clawlike feet. She has membranous wings. She has a unubsually long tail tipped with a bony club. Her wardrobe is risque.
This... took ages. And I mean ages. I pulled 1.75 all nighters on this (one all-nighter and two up until 3ams). Still, I'm pleased with how she turned out. It's been a while since I've tried anything this ambitious. Or which pushed my computer this hard.
The extroverted male half-Hydra spy. He appears human - yet his shadow is always that of his non-human parent's species.
The calculating warrior. His aquamarine eyes can seduce you with a glance. His stylish hair is slate-gray. He has a rather youthful face. His outfits are tight, he has a preference for brown, and he has a thing for low-riding pants and leather boots.
He seems to me like one of those crazy fantasy RPG characters. Not the hero though, Ghost is that one guy that you meet at a suspiciously helpful time in some bar who hits on your wimmenz (but you still assume he's flaming), assaults the hero with good-natured barbs and by the time he gets around to revealing his halfsy heritage the hero can't but scream at him in frustration because if he'd revealed everything just a liiiiittle while earlier it would have saved everybody a ton of trouble.
And yeah, I'm pretty well aware that with the lighting angles I used, a shadow wouldn't really show up there
Well the contest was to use the Fusion Class Generator and a character generator abd make up a character based on the results. I decided to use the first results I got which were:
This confident lady has wide white eyes that are like two bleached skulls. Her thick, wavy, indigo hair is medium-length and is worn in a handsome style. She is short and has a leggy build. Her skin is white. She has a weak chin and small feet. Her wardrobe is flattering.
I loved the idea of a Quick-Draw Illusionist, she conjures cards to shoot at people as well as other magic tricks. xD I tried to make her outfit part cowgirl part magicians assistant, lol.
Her name is Elaine Lane (also randomly generated, I love it!) and she has a pet white bunny. Her father was a very famous illusionist. One of his tricks was sabotaged by an Outlaw named Trevor Never and he was killed. Elaine was left all of her dads magic items and swore revenge... I generated Trevor too, I'll have to draw him sometime, he's awesome xD
[Another entry for another Seventh Sanctum contest, this time to design an ad for CANDY!! Maybe I'll do better in this contest if I actually read the rules properly... Contest can be viewed here... [link] ]
*fade in to deep space; we see an astronaut floating amongst the stars*
Astronaut: -bzzt- Huston, we have a problem.
Radio: -bzzt- Copy that, Cosmo-one, what's wrong?
Astronaut: I'm /hungry/.
Advertiser: COSMO BLACKBERRY TOFFEE! SATISFIES YOUR CRAVINGS FOR DELICIOUS DEEP SPACE FOOD! HEALTHY??? NEVER!!! TASTES LIKE THE UNIVERSE!!
Astronaut: Yum, Cosmoblackberry toffee! *tries to eat, but hits fist against helmet* Awww....
Um. Yeah. That's what a television advertisement would look like, I imagine, but the serious entry is the picture above. The contest is Candy Mania, and generates fictional candy, and I had to make an ad for it. My generation was 'cosmoblackberry toffee', soo... here it is! Delicious milk chocolate with a distinct blackberry aftertaste... individually wrapped for your convenience! And that strong taste you can't place? That's the taste of the universe, my friends.
((The original slogan was going to be "tastes like a black hole!" but I could see that going wrong on so many levels.))
