I generally save this folder for the best art I find, including pieces I like from friends. There's a lot of great artists out there who definitely deserve to be recognized. Keep up the good work, everyone!

The use of cool-tone colors in this piece is excellent. They are well-balanced, between the greens of the leaves and distant pine trees...

I love the use of color in this photo. Though the background is solid, the colors on the hummingbird and the branch make up for it. The...

This is overall a great photo! The balance of color here was captured very well: the yellows, blacks, white/off-whites, and browns of t...

Hey everyone,

Third Place (TIE) Tulmur95 EagleFlyte 'Clans' contest entryThe sun began to set on the Forest of Fangs, bathing the treetops in beautiful orange and red light. All appeared peaceful, but looks alone were deceiving. Perched on the tallest branch of a dead sycamore tree was a griffin, not just any griffin. He had experienced terrible things in his life which left him scarred emotionally, but did nothing to dampen his will. He had come to the forest searching for the one responsible for the deaths of his parents which he witnessed firsthand. His name was Blaze.
The same shadowy foe had also pinned the two local griffin clans against each other in a brutal and uncompromising war which had been going on for years. She was no ordinary foe, her name was Thirah, and Thirah was a vampire. She was responsible for the war, and all of the mysterious deaths around it. In order to keep the war going, she would lure adults and even young griffins away with her seductive charms and powerful illusions before proceeding to then kill them. Her tactics were savag

"Just a little faster, you almost got it!"

Riva flaps her wings until they burn, running into the wind then with it over and over until she collapses at her mother's feet. Pichan smiles down at her pup.
"You're flapping to hard, let the wind carry you."

"I can't do it, momma. Can we go home, please?"

"After you spend hours begging me to take you out here? Absolutely not!"

It had been months since the famine had ended and Riva was having trouble adjusting to all the greenery. She was hatched during the clan wars and knew nothing but famine and bloodshed ever since her early days, however now was a time of peace and with peace her mother could focus on teaching her pup to fly instead of spending her time searching for nonexistent food sources. Some changes came easier than others however…

"Just one more try, I'll give you a boost if you want."
Without hesitating, Pichan picks up her pup by the scruf

You get: B/W sketchdump for one of your characters, including speech bubbles, and a llama.


*Please send me a note with the character(s) you want depicted in your prizes (and a short story line for first place one-pager). I can't do squat without them. THANK YOU!*

Also, if you're not into the whole llama/badge thing, just let me know and I'll omit that part of the prize. I'll understand if it's not your cup of tea. :)

Thanks again for the wonderful support! Can't wait to see what you choose.

Hello. How are things with you?
EagleFlyte Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
Pretty good, though I haven't been very active on dA because of looking for a job/grad school.

Thanks for asking, how about you?
Azarius-Flashfang Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2015
Meh. I've got a test and homework this week plus career fair coming up. Sometimes I wonder if I'm wasting my time going to those since none of them have netted me a position but I should still go anyway. At least I finally got a job helping teachers at help sessions for students so hopefully that'll be the experience some of the companies are looking for. How goes your search?
EagleFlyte Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2015  Hobbyist General Artist
I did get accepted to a couple grad schools, and if I decide to start it would be Spring 2016. Whether I even can depends on if I can get an assistantship with the tuition waived. That's my plan A.

In the meantime I'm just getting involved with local conservation organizations to network and search for job opportunities as backup. I got my first paycheck from a one-day event with our church's bookseller when they were shorthanded but other than that still looking for work.
