This thing needs neutralised!

Prompt 4: You watch the package. It watches you back. It burps. Draw or write about your character stopping the present mimic! Do they feed it until it goes back to sleep? Do they beat it like a piΓ±ata? Do they fistfight it for ruining their holiday plans?


The mimic has revealed itself! Bertrand dodges each strike from it while Fo attacks on the other side.

(Thank you CrazyShiro for letting me use one of your characters!)

    I really like the monochrome style, the perspective looks great and I like the composition you've chosen, how dynamic it feels (poor Bertrand, this attack missed, but it looks like he's got hit before).

      Thank you so much! It was a bit tricky getting a decent composition (did a lot of stretching of the canvas to comfortably fit both Bertrand and Fo in), so I'm glad to hear you like it! (And yeah, Bertie took a few hits before, but not enough to slow him down!)

        It was worth it! Putting the mimic the center and the characters on both sides of it and giving them enough space worked well, in my opinion., Composition-wise they are like a frame to the threat, so they appear greater than it, making it feel that they'll prevail.

          Again, thank you! It's funny, it's like the mimics and the characters are framing one another in a weird way, but it turned out decent enough, I think? But yes, I like to thing that the pair will emerge victorious from this battle!
