Weekly CG Challenge #101 “Forest Spirit” has ended!
We received 48 accepted submissions. Congrats to the three winners Gregory Smith, Andre Bales and Jesse Amiel Gayanilo. See the winners and all entries below.
Please note: Concerning the prizes, we will contact you in the next two weeks.
Forest Spirit – In ancient times, when humanity and nature lived yet in peace, the oldest and wisest of the proud tribes were used to friendly community with strange spirits that lived in the untouched woods. Now that the old knowledge is long forgotten, nobody cares about or even remembers the spirits of the forest anymore. Will they remain in quiet solitude as they did for thousands of years? Or will they stand up and claim bitter revenge for what mankind has taken from them?
