Santa Claus VS. Dinosaurs
Picture an alternate universe. Not the universe you and I know, but a strange and awesome universe where Santa lives not to deliver stupid presents, but to defend mankind from giant dino-beasts! How would Santa battle the prehistoric beasts? Who would win? Why does it even matter? It's jolly Saint Nick versus dinosaurs so get to drawing!

Depict a battle of any sort. You must include Santa. You must include dinosaurs. You must include epic. That is all.

Deadline: I dunno, Christmas? Hows that sound?


~ BI-WEEKLY CHALLENGE THREAD ~


For those of you who frequent the conceptart.org forums this should be pretty familiar; tens of artistic combatants thrown together in to an artistic arena, each struggling for the honor of being dubbed a master of the visual arts. Those of you who succeed will be bathed in glory and the blood of their competitors, those of you who fail will be exiled to a life of shame and isolation.

The aim of this thread is to try and spice things up a bit here in the ol' Artist's Corner. This thread is for entries in to the challenge or the discussion thereof. If you'd like to suggest a topic for the weekly challenge, go right ahead, but understand that the last winner of the challenge has total control over the task (unless they have won more than two challenges in a row, see rules).

The rules are simple;


RULES:

* One entry per person, per challenge.
* A contestant cannot win more than two challenges in a row.
* Winner gets the privilege of choosing the next challenge.
* At the end of a challenge, the thread is locked and a new one is begun.
* Stick to the challenge topic; no going off on a tangent.
* All formats welcome, whether they be traditional or digital; 2D or 3D; still or animated.

If you're looking for inspiration, check out the aforementioned conceptart.org forums (specifically the creature/environment/character of the week sections).

    I might even try joining in on this one. I'll see if I can dig up any decent resources for dinosaur references. Here's one (DK images) for starters.

    Christmas still sucks in a very big way. Santa comes to Dino Town every year to spread his christmas joy...

    See, this concept is awesome, I wish that such outside the box ideas would come to me when I need them. Only time I ever get inspired is in the shower, and by the time I get out I have usually forgotten whatever I thought up :x

    yes it's a classic reversal maneuver. There are tons of giant dinosaurs/dinosaurlikebeings attacking human cities. But in this pic we have dinosanta attacking a dinosaur city! HoHoHo!
    E: Notice Rudolph (Rudolf?) in the back ground; also giant, also destructifying!

    /\ Not a serious entry.
    I hope that was a typo and not an intentional pun hinting at that same idea because then I'd feel like an ass.

    I think S_O would be one of the few people to actually make an intentional pun like that one.

    Bacon, you might have already won.

    Edit: Oh yeah, I'll be waiting here for someone to draw Bacon as Santa. It's inevitable.

    You can probably close this thread now, seeing as how nobody can possibly top Loom's magnirific post. I'm sure this even puts CMT3000 to shame, but who could blame him when faced with such adversity.

    My hat is off to you, Loom.

    Worry not, Loom. You should not question the immaculate Image which you have created. It is not your place to do so, for It has become bigger than you. We are but insects, basking in the shade of It's cast shadow...which is long and cast-like.

    It's not very creative, I know, and I might pretty it up some more later, but it's been four hours since I started and I am done for tonight.

    Oh man the arms on that t-rex do not connect at the same point at all. Well whatever I'll fix it tomorrow or something.

    edit: Yes he is rescuing a baby.
    Later, he will eat it.
