Hello and welcome to Mythos!

The first cycle of a mythological-based competition, we'll be focusing on the popular global legends of old - Greek, Norse and Egyptian myths alongside local folklore surrounding various parts of the world. From creepy creatures to god-like figures from history, your picture will be rewriting their stories!

All of the assignments will give you a lot of free rein on what you'd like to portray, as requirements will only give you very basic pointers in the right direction. I aim for this to let your creativity really shine through, so mostly anything goes in your shots. You retell these legends!

Prefer fantasy over fashion? Sign-ups below! I'll be accepting 10 models with 8 rounds, but if more would like to enter, the mock will be an elimination round.

•No negativity whatsoever, it simply won't be tolerated.
•Custom content and editing is highly recommended.
•No face plastering or photo-skinning.
•I use GMT time to set deadlines and such - please plan accordingly.
•Each assignment lasts seven days total.
•Three extensions may be granted, at five days maximum per extension.
•Any nudity and/or graphic content, please post elsewhere and add a link here.
•If you feel you need to drop for whatever reason, let me know rather than not show.
•Please enjoy yourself!

Scoring will be out of a possible 100.

Creativity ?/20: Did this shot really wow you? We're looking for who really took our breath away with impact.  
Lore-friendly ?/20: I'll be keeping assignment briefings short and sweet, but who really read that over, and took in the clues? Who did their research?
Model Styling ?/20: Self-explanatory. Are Medusa's snakes looking as clean and fresh as they should be? Is that beer I see on your heroes shoes? Keep your model looking good and fitting their style!
Setting ?/20: Just what does that Sphinx think it's doing in the middle of the jungle? Get back to the pyramids! - Be sure your setting fits what you're looking to portray.
Overall ?/20: Putting all of the above requirements together, did everything work in harmony?

Mock assignment:
Your mock assignment will begin with an Indian legend - the Nāga. According to Indian folklore, the Nāga are primarily water and sometimes earth-dwelling creatures whom are half human, half snake. In many regions of the world they were once considered deities; sometimes demons of primal oceans, mountain springs, dense forests (though they are never far from water).
Nāga are in very close relation to dragons, hence their tenancy to become guardians of priceless treasures, magical artifacts and gems sought by men. Their bite is poisonous and extremely deadly. The Nāga were known for their dismantling beauty. Their skin is slate-coloured, and sometimes scaled, and their eyes cold and serpentine.

Requirements:
Full bodyshot.
Water or Earth dwelling Nāga.
Follow the lore of the text posted above - and feel free to do more research.
The rest is entirely up to you.

Examples:
Do not copy these to the letter, I'm looking for your own touch!

Ooooo this looks really awesome! Question about the mock assignment though: When you say full body shot, is it okay if you only see the top half of the body? Or do you actually want the whole body (head to toe--or fin lol) to be seen? Thanks!

You certainly can, but as I was about to say to Riki - this is about to go on hold until it gets a little more interest. Feel free to post your mock/application but this could be awhile before it gets going. I'm not giving up on it whatsoever, though! I just can't start with so little entries!
