    Teen Challenge #27: The Ogre Slayer

    Congrats to Evil_Sloth and Sketcheth for winning challenge #25 with a tie! Good job, guys.

    And special thanks to Narmo for covering for me while I was away to deal with a death in the family. Much appreciated.

    The Rules:
    Anyone ages 13-19 may submit an entry at any time before the deadline. Please host your image on a remote image-hosting site instead of uploading it to the CA server. This makes it much easier to transfer it to the poll thread.

    The Topic:
    Character: The Ogre Slayer
    Less vague than the preovious topic, as requested. The ogre slayer is a character who has gained a reputation for saving terrorized towns by hunting and exterminating the large, violent, disruptive creatures known as ogres. The design is open to interpretation, but keep it original (no decapitated Shreks, please )

    The Deadline:
    Wednesday, April 11 at midnight PST
    Two weeks.

    Okily dokily, here's my entry (updated!)
    Teen Challenge #27: The Ogre Slayer

    Detail:
    Teen Challenge #27: The Ogre Slayer

    The land of thermapolina has always been haunted by the dreadful stench of ogres, evil and rotting creatures that dwell in the mountains. Every now and then the local villages were plundered by the savage creatures, being robbed from their young ones as the ogres feed on children. One day, the wise king Aeraklies decided to put an end to this madness. A massive army was assembled, and they attacked the ogres at their homeground, deep within the peaks of horror. The environment was playing on the ogres side, and became their advantage. The cold and exhausted men got lost, and were killed one by one by the overwhelming ogres. Yet, Aeraklies would not admit defeat. Again and again, he marched armies from all around the corners of his empire. Like pigs for the slaughter, they were chopped down by the retaliating enemy.

    Then the king got a crazed idea. So bizarre that h almost got thrown out of his own throne by the bewildered people. he planned to breed his very own ogre, and train it in perfection to kill his own kind. For there were no stronger creature than a larger ogre. A scout group were mustered, and quickly sent up into the mountains to steal young ogres. Despite grave losses by the kingdoms scout group, they managed to catch but one ogre cub. Deep within the hollows, the king chosed to breed his forthcoming Ogre Slayer. 20 years went past, before the king finally returned from the dark dungeouns. Nobody knew how he did it, but following him out of the tunnel was a massive ogre, trained by the king himself to hunt down and exterminate his own specie. Even though the creature was brainwashed to follow human orders, and kill ogres, it's natural instincts occured frequently. Therefore, dicipline was outmost important. His sly skin reveal several scars, indicating the rough treatment he recieves if he "misbehave".

    During the first year, people were more afraid of it, than being willing to be rescued. But now when over 50 years has passed, and the old king Aeraklies is dead. People salute him as a saviour and hero, as he passed by town after town, cleansing the nearby hills and mountains for ogres.

    Looks like this is going to be the challenge that seperates the men from the boys...

    Sorry to hear about your loss. Cool topic. Doing an original one will be the challenge. I'm in for this. I'm terribly down because I dropped out of the last one. Lame. Can't wait to see what ya'll cook up!

    First post, first Conceptart.org challenge.. This seems to be a fun place to begin, an interesting topic for my first victory! >: P And I believe that any topic makes a good challenge, because it's really what YOU, as the artist can do with it to make it interesting and unique?
    Good luck everyone. E:

    Doesn't the cliche-ness of the topic make it more challenging? I think it does. It's a theme that everyone and their mother has seen before, it'll be awesome seeing all the reinterpretations of it, trying to make it more new and original.
    Whoohoo. I'm in.
