My contest entry, coming up! (I also have a secondary contest entry idea, hopefully I will have time to do it…)
I pulled the following items:
1. Aiden for M5
2. Full & Feathered Hair for Genesis
3. GIS for Genesis Male
4. Wyvern 2.0
5. Genesis Creature Creator Bundle
Additional items used:
Ancient Book from DAZ freebies (sorry, I do not know who made it, as it does not seem to contain creator info, and freebie site is down)
Jepe’s PlateZ (effect on the floor, wyvern breath) by Jepe.
Free RDNA Atmospherics: Fog by Traveler.
Furify: Fur Shaders for the loincloth and vest (vest itself is GIS for Genesis Male) by Marieah and 3DLust.
Loincloth is from Cheyenne for M4 by Ravenhair.
Axe is from The FREAK 4 Weapons by Predatron.
The stage and mostly-unseen other areas are made out of primitives, and shaded with Eva1’s Wood Shaders for DAZ Studio.
The microphone comes from a freebie by thegoodtaste at Rendo.
Astral for GIS by Moyra used for spicing up the basic GIS for Genesis Male.
A larger version of the picture can be seen at my DeviantArt site.
A hair metal revival in 2012? Well, sure, why not! The previously moderately successful, but now mostly forgotten Blind Ozelot band started its gig somewhere in god-forgotten Mid-Western town, in a concert hall that looked like it had been a barn up until two weeks ago. To spice things up and give gossip rags and blogs something to talk about, the lead singer “Betty” Smith decided to urge the gathered audience to chant after him, as he read plain mumbojumbo off some book that claimed to be an authentic book of spells—a spell for strength, power, fame and ferocity.
He did not expect it to work. He did not expect a rift between worlds, and above all, he did not expect his otherworldly twin to show up. As one stagehand—an avid gamer—later put it, “It was like looking at a half-orc version of Betty.”
There were screams, sparks, uncontrollable bursts of magic, and finally, darkness and dead silence and when the lights came back, the stage was empty—no book, no Betty, no screaming wyvern, nor a rider on top of it, not even a drop of blood. All that remained was one final reel of film, and one memorable frame on it.
Everyone agreed that it would make a spiffy CD sleeve cover.
