The Princess Cadence Filly by AndreaSemiramis
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ever notice how Luna and Celestia seem to be like greek gods Artemis (Goddess of the moon and hunt) and Apollo (God of music, sun, and archery)? Cadance like Aphrodite (Goddess of love)? What if there were other alicorns with powers similar to greek gods?

CONTEST: Design an alicorn based off one of the greek gods:
DEADLINE: Saturday, June 30th

Please submit to the "Greek Gods Contest" folder.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These are the following gods your alicorn may be based off of:

:bulletblue:Poseidon (God of water and ocean)
:bulletgreen:Demeter (Goddess of the harvest and nature)
:bulletorange:Hephaestus (God of fire and craftwork)
:bulletblack:Hades (God of death and the underworld)

*It does not matter if your alicorn is male or female, even if the gods gender is different.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

PRIZES:
:bulletred:1st Place:250 points, fully colored digital request, group feature
:bulletred:2nd Place:100 points, sketch request, group feature
:bulletred:3rd Place:50 points, sketch request, group feature

I've done all four gods/godesses, is that allowed? Should I post them as one deviation or would it be alright to enter each of the four entries individually?

Are we allowed to have more than one Alicorn in one picture? Like, if someone wanted to illustrate the Birth of Athena, or something?
Reply
:iconpsychoticpancake:
PsychoticPancake Featured By Owner Jun 3, 2012
Please keep each individual design to one picture. You can submit as many as you'd like, however.

NorthernLightsmlpfim Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
really? why only those 4? why not all the greek gods? why nod all the gods from all religions? i don't want to make a problem, but I'm always fascinated by all of them! :)

PsychoticPancake Featured By Owner Jun 1, 2012
We just didn't want to make the contest too complicated and have some basic guidelines. I agree, the greek gods are really interesting and diverse, but we just wanted to simplify the contest.
