Elementals Contest (New Prizes)Earth, Fire, Water, Air, and Uranium? What's this? A CONTEST? My challenge for you is to create a stock and/or art piece depicting elementals/elements whether it be of the traditional elements or the newfangled chemistry elements. I want to see your creativity!
There are no required stocks and the contest is open to stockers, traditional artists, and digital artists.
Clarification: You can depict as many of the elements as you wish in your entry whether it be one or many. You can do the earth, water, fire, air type elementals, or elementals related to chemistry elements, or even elementals that combine both types of elements!
There are three categories:

The Coffee GodThe Coffee God behind the counter shuffles foot to foot, a dance of steam and espresso. Black painted fingernails, inch gauged ears and a gray striped sweatshirt, hood crooked on his back. There's a cigarette tucked behind one ear; it bobs and twitches with each step.
“Non-fat caramel latte,” he calls, just as he always does, part of a spell, part of a mantra, toneless (just a tuck at the end). I reach. He looks up.
The espresso maker hisses.
There's something like a grin, something like a spark, something like a shared secret linked eye to eye. When he passes over the drink (rough cardboard sleeve hot to the touch), he lingers. Our fingers brush, a shiver, a jolt, a ten-watt shock.
The Coffee God tilts his chin, shouts, “Hey, mind if I take my break now?”
and ducks around the counter without waiting for a reply.
He slips his cigarette between his lips without taking his eyes from mine. I follow him out the door.
Keep in Touch!
