Thousand-Word Challenge: Image #2
This image has a commonly-seen 16:9 aspect ratio.  It uses a full spectrum of hues, though mostly in pastel shades.  The setting is a cityscape with a river running through it, with a gentle rain falling.
Closest to the viewer is a row of grasses, about knee-high.  The ambient lighting paints dark shadows on these.  Several clusters of baby-blue flowers can be seen in the bottom-left corner.  There are two pairs of flowering plants: one left of the middle; the other, a third from the right.  In the bottom-right corner, waist-high, is a bush with lighter-green leaves and salmon-color flowers.
At the far left is a tree extending from bottom to top.  At its base is a climbing vine with tiny flowers, wrapping partly around the trunk.  There’s one major branch, splitting off the trunk at the horizontal midpoint (30° off vertical), which splits again into two more branches about 30% from the top.  There’s a short stub branch on th

Thousand-Word Challenge: Image #1
It was a bright and crisp Monday morning in December.  The clouds that were draped across the sky scattered the sun's rays into a brilliant white, as white as the fragile snowflakes that floated gently down, and began to melt as soon as they touched the ground.  Stretching off into the distance, an array of steel trusses stood tall at regular intervals like soldiers at attention, carrying electrical cables that buzzed with anticipation.  Nearby, a mint-green clock atop a metal signpost quietly ticked away the time: it was nearing 10:00 AM.  The foot traffic through this train station had slowed to a trickle, a far cry from the bustle of morning commuters who had been here just hours before.
A few minutes ahead of schedule, the el-train pulled into the station, easing to a stop with the brakes squealing in protest.  The train cars' ridged metal plating almost seemed to glisten in the bright morning light.  Within seconds of its doors opening, six people exi

[Sonic] The Last Frontier: Ch. 11
That night, I dreamed about being in Robotnik's base, the night that the freak accident sent me back in time.  I was standing in one of the corridors, and several robots were there, but oddly, none of them seemed to react to my presence.  I could hear footsteps coming from around a corner, and I turned to see myself, racing up the hallway.  "I" ran right through me before "I" punched holes through all the robots, which led me to believe I was standing there as an invisible observer.  I knew exactly where this was going, and I raced after the other me.
"No, Sonic, don't go in there!  It's a trap!" I cried out as I saw myself play out the "pizza delivery" skit that got me into the control room the first time around.  But my pleading fell on deaf ears, as I saw myself enter the room, and then yelp out in surprise a few seconds later when the floor had given out from under me.
I jolted awake because I felt something poking my arm repeatedly.  It was the m

[Zootopia] Nick and Judy's Lunch Date
As with my last Zootopia chat-style submission, I have to post the actual content in the description (so I can use the chat icons) while the description will go here in the text box.
I got the idea for this last week and jotted it down.  It was inspired by a joke I heard from Rodney Dangerfield years ago, and I just built upon it to give it a setting and a suitable ending.
I used images of Bellwether in place of the generic waitress, primarily because using "waitress" text would look inconsistent with Nick and Judy's dialogue.  Although I hadn't planned this out, I now think that, considering Bellwether's speech and mannerisms, she could have been a waitress in another life.

[Sonic] The Last Frontier: Ch. 10
Sandy's outburst was more than enough to get the two dozen innocent bystanders in the foyer stopped in their tracks and looking right at us.  I could feel the weight of their judgmental glances.  The cops finished putting the cuffs on my wrists, and we were unceremoniously paraded out the door, down the front steps, and up the street.  The entire time, Sandy continued to struggle against her handcuffs.
"Please, ya gotta let us go.  Nobody got hurt.  It's all a big misunderstandin'!  Tell 'em, Sonic!"
Although she was right, I knew it'd be foolish to say something out loud that might be used against us at some later point.  I responded "Just keep quiet for now.  We'll get this sorted out," in a way that I hoped didn't sound critical.
I wasn't sure what to make of her expression, but thankfully, she heeded my warning, as we walked a total of four blocks from the capitol to a two-story red-brick building.  I had guessed it was a police station

[Zootopia] Nick and Judy's First Stakeout
The following was originally published as a journal entry on December 11, 2016, due to DeviantART's restrictions of using chat icons in text-based gallery submissions.  In the interest of preserving the upload so it isn't overwritten by the next journal entry, I am transferring it to the gallery, by posting the entire script in the comments field, and posting the Author's Comments here in this text box.  Everything below this line is taken from the original Author's Comments.
I first got the idea for writing this more than a week ago, or at least, the core premise of Nick and Judy being on a stakeout for the first time.  It was only when I decided to write it down that I fleshed out a bit of its details, particularly in the beginning to establish context.  I tried staying as close to their personalities as I believe they would be.
I am so thankful for DA's "Community Emoticons" feature, and the fact that there are so many chat icons of Nick and Judy to choose

I have my favorites categorized. In one category, I put all the pictures from other artists that I've helped work on (usually by coloring). In another, I put pictures from artists that were created for me.

EDIT -- I should probably rephrase that last comment. Since writing this description, I've become a bit less...uptight about how I define a favorite. I'll add a picture to my favorites if it's something I believe is worth seeing again.

I recognize that it's been a few months since I've uploaded anything new to DA, and that's been for one reason or another.  That is one of the reasons I am posting this journal entry.

I first got the idea for this a long time ago, but now I'm taking the first step towards it in action.  Most people have heard the phrase that "a picture is worth a thousand words."  I used to have a teacher in school who expanded that by including "And if you have a thousand words to back it up, it's twice as good."  That's what inspired me to try this.

In an attempt to get the creative juices flowing again -- which would likely help me make some progress towards things I've neglected as of late, such as more chapters of The Last Frontier -- I want to try the following challenge.  I will be presented with some random image, and then I will write one thousand words (no more, no less) to accompany it.  The thousand words could either be a detailed description of what I see in the image, or it could be a story that I see unfolding from the contents of the image.  (It would be whichever I would find easier to write for that particular image.)

The question I have is: if I was to start this challenge, would anyone be interested in reading what I write about the images?  Or would I just be wasting my time?
If you're interested, then post a comment on this journal with an image you'd like me to write about.  For now, these are the rules:
1. You must be one of my watchers to participate.  Whether you've followed me since 2007 or you just watched me a few seconds ago, you're eligible.
2. No images with gratuitous violence, nudity, or sexual content.  Also, since I'd be uploading the image along with the text, I'd prefer the images be royalty-free / approved for reuse.  You can filter by usage rights in Google image search.
3. First come, first serve.  I'll only work on one piece of writing at a time, and I won't promise how long it will take me to complete it.
4. People who submitted an image to me before, can submit one to me again.  Preference will be given to first-timers, though.

Though I might be a mechanical engineer by profession, creative work has long been a hobby of mine. I'm not one to let a good idea go to waste, no matter what it is or where it might come from, which is why my creative work spans everything from writing to hand drawing to digital art and 3D modeling.
