    Round #162 Holiday Dinner with the Harkonnens

    Topic:
    Holiday Dinner with the Harkonnens

    Holiday Dinner with the Harkonnens-- The various fall/winter holidays are almost upon us. Because we have participants from all over the globe on ConceptArt.Org, let's forget the usual earthly holidays we think of at this time of year. In lieu of doing a Thanksgiving round or a Christmas round, let's imagine a holiday on a fictional alien planet. Let's spend the holidays with the House of Harkonnen, who live on the planet Giedi Prime in Frank Herbert's Dune Universe. Giedi Prime is known to be largely over industrialized, polluted, and denatured... but not entirely so. Any native creature that still survives on Giedi Prime must be a fairly robust species, and rare, to serve at a holiday dinner of nobility.

    Your task this round is to design a new alien creature, indigenous to the planet Giedi Prime, which the Baron Vladimir Harkonnen and his family would eat at a traditional holiday meal. If you are not familiar with the Dune Universe, you should try a little research on Wikipedia. The Harkonnens are the really evil villains of the book (although one could argue there are different degrees of bad guys all over the Dune books...)... The Harkonnens are really decadent, really sadistic, really terrible. I think their character should be reflected both in what they choose to eat and how they prepare it.

    This will be a two part challenge. I want to see two illustrations with your entry. The first should be your new alien creature design as it would appear in life, in the wild, before it is hunted down and killed (or perhaps, as they are farmed by the Harkonnen clan.) The second illustration should show the 'serving suggestion.' Depict this creature as it would be prepared and served by the Harkonnens' chefs as the main course for a holiday dinner. Think about this for a moment. The Harkonnens are nobility, but they're also entirely perverse. Really try to have fun with this one. You should give equal thought to both the design of the living alien creature as well as how it would be served for dinner. If you find yourself short of time and still want to enter, remember that this is still Creature of the Week first. Focus on the living creature.

    Because of the Thanksgiving weekend coming up, as well as the two part illustration, I am going to give you a little more than a week to complete this. Instead of this being due Tuesday December 1st, I'll make the deadline Sunday December 6th.



    Deadline:
    Sunday December 6th, 2009


    Finals go here: http://="http://www.conceptart.org/f...d.php?t=174176

    note: The deadline won't be EXACTLY after a week...it can last up to 24 hours or more, i am human and have to work also, you know
