Greetings All you Amazing Deviants,

Today is a very special day for me. Today is the day of the release of Issue 4 of my self published manga, ‘The Beast Legion’ which you can read over at &n… with all the previous issues. Over the past months, I’ve had the pleasure of having some Amazing artists here on DA do exclusive covers & pin-ups for each these issues which are exclusive to the Print version which can be found at

Beast Legion issue 1 by JazylH  Beast Legion Issue 2 cover by JazylH Beast Legion Issue 3 Cover by JazylH Beast Legion issue 4 cover by JazylH

Starting issue 4 ,however, the comic will be updated on Monday’s & Fridays.

To celebrate this double sized issue, I’ve decided to hold a ‘BEAST LEGION ACTION CAPTURE’ contest. I do plan on releasing an art book with fan works sometime early in 2011 with work selected from this contest.

Pick any two characters from the Beast Legion mythos so far & draw them in any action pose that you desire.  You can have a maximum of 4 characters in a picture. Just remember that they need to be in ‘ACTION’ not simply a pin-up art or a page from the manga colored. It can be anything, a scene from the manga,  something totally original . You are free to choose if you want to do the human or Beast forms of the characters.
You can find all the characters that are up for grabs in Beast Legion Concept art Gallery & also over at

If you are willing to sponsor & donate points, subs, journal features, commissions or anything just let me know & I will feature you & your contributions on the front page of :iconthebeastlegion: to donate prizes of any sort please note me, :iconjazylh:

Judging will be based on
2)Concept & Composition
3)Technical skill
4)Incorporation of key elements

I want to stress on the last criteria. Key elements include important parts of each character such as each of their Beast transfer armors. Yes you can modify the look a bitbut those are key elements of the entire manga. Secondly,, I suggest you read the manga & I'm sure you'll get a better idea of the characters personalities & powers.

. Remember, Judging will be based on the quality not just the number of characters in the pic. Unanimous Decision of the judges will be final and irrevocable.

:iconjazylh: :iconatramina: :icondawidfrederik: :icondanschoening:

Also there will be 25 semifinalist works that will be featured in an artbook which will be released in April, 2011 .

So what are you waiting for, Grab your pencils & tablets, And uunleash the Beast Within!

Hey, I tried to make some time, but to much work, to little life left :P. I won't be able to participate sadly enough. I wish the other good luck though, I saw some great stuff amongst the entries!

Oh, I definitely have to give a try at least. And also have to admit that I'm curious to know how your characters would work in my style :D

IT's worth a shot & I'd love to see them in your style. This contest is all about seeing the characters rendered in different styles.

Dumb question but, do we have to draw one or two characters?
