Core ARC Contest: Wind And Rock Demons

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! The next few submissions we got for the Core ARC Contest feature some especially ferocious corelings. Check them out!

These fantastic entries come to us from Marc R.:

Here’s my entry, both a “raw” form and a digitally enhanced – used which ever suits your fancy. Cheers.

I love both versions of this! In either one, the wind demon is absolutely terrifying. The wards on the house and pathway really add something special.

This next one was sent in by Yosef G. AKA Moldy Crow:

Here’s my entry, built with my son’s lego bricks and some printed figures. It shows Gaims and Woron betting which side One Arm will go – east or west, while the demon looks at them menacingly from below. I’ve taken the liberty of taking the diorama and expanding it into new directions. Hope you like it!

What a unique take on the diorama guidelines! I could see this being in a Demon Cycle adventure game. Very awesome.

Core ARC Contest: Demon Attacks

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Following up on yesterday’s post, we’ve got another batch of awesome entries from the Core ARC Contest. These ones feature demon attacks. Check them out!

Two submissions came to us from Devon Ward. I have to say, they fall on the more inventive/quirky side:

DevonWard1 DevonWard2

Humor can fix many of life’s imperfections.

I love the personality in these shots. I still wouldn’t want to be trapped inside that house though…

This next entry was sent in by Anderson Tiago:

The Painted Man saves a village from demons

I really like this one. The poses, the ward circle, the layout… plus that background is absolutely perfect. Very, very, cool.

Core ARC Contest: Digital Diorama

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Next up on the Core ARC Contest, we’ve got a particularly interesting couple of submission. One might even say the creator was thinking…. outside the box (I’m so sorry).

Instead of doing a traditional diorama, Sam Cantwell created a digital version. Check it out!

This is a quick replication of the scene where Rojer is alone in the pitch black, and has nothing but his fiddle and his bloody fingers to keep him company until the sun rises – when I first read this scene, it hit me hard and was the only time (at that point) that I had ever paused reading to reflect how fucking epic that moment was. Thank you.

These are absolutely gorgeous. Click on the images to see them at their full size.

Sam also sent in a cheat-sheet on how he got those awesome moonlit shadows:

I’ve also attached a BTS photo that shows different angles with the moonlight and camera in case you’re interested. I suspended half a dozen trees midair to achieve the shadowed result in the final render.

I cannot stress how amazing the prizes are this time. Winners will be able to read the final book in The Demon Cycle before anyone else– that’s bananas! As someone who is lucky enough to have a copy, let me tell you that things kick off right from page one…

Core ARC Contest: Wonda The Badass

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! On the heels of Monday’s Wonda The Riveter fanart post, I wanted to put up some Core ARC Contest entries featuring one of my favorite characters.

These fantastic entries come to us from Andrew J.:

AndrewJarrell1 AndrewJarrell2 AndrewJarrell3

Heyo! Here is my entry for the ARC contest. I can’t wait for The Core! I’m so excited! I know I’ll be bawling my eyes out but that’s okay. I’m ready!

It might look like Wonda is in trouble here but as you well know… she’s a badass! She’s got this covered!

I adore the angles used in these shots. They’re so cinematic– it definitely feels like a real fight. When all hell breaks loose, Wonda’s definitely the right person to have on your side. The background is also just gorgeous. Really awesome job, Andrew!
