It's a creature-design contest for her Fantasy World Project "Equira" which revolved around a group of rag-tag kids on a perilous adventure through a land full of magic and monsters. The contest is to design a creature based on yourself (or original character), essentially taking your internal monsters and making them external/physical.
There's options for written entries as well as drawn entries!

CONTEST #3 - The Monster In YouGot a lot of positive feedback for hosting another one of these - now featuring a category for Artists, and another for Writers!
The Monster In You
The contest asks artist and writers to look within themselves, or an original character, to uncover some of their greatest, and most detestable traits. What are your some of the best features? What are the worst? What are the graces and sins? They can be physical, mental, emotional, or anything you can imagine. The characteristic you choose will be the foundation you use to create your monster. Is the creature a hideous, warty Giant with the kindest and most gentle demeanor? Is it a beautiful and graceful Avian with a cold and insecure heart? The design options are endless!
The contest has two categories, one for artists and one for writers, and contestants can choose which style suits them best. There are a few guidelines for each category that are a little different
The prizes in the long-run are art based, which should really excite you because Nars is an amazing artist! Just take a look at her gallery narsilion.deviantart.com/galle… It's filled with beautiful landscapes, amazing creatures, and detailed character designs!
I've known Nars for a long time (longer than what seems possible for an internet friendship really) and I have always been a fan of her work, and Equira especially. Whether you join the contest or not, this is a good opportunity to check out her work and possibly fall in love with the world of Equira just like I have.
Anyway! Go forth, make art! Praise my friend! Do what ya gotta do, but this is a cool oppertunity
