Design a Creatuer for Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance

Design a New Creature for The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance! The world of Thra is full of incredible characters of all kinds. Now it’s your chance to imagine an all-new character and have it brought to life by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop.

Draw, by hand or digitally, an original creature concept for the world of The Dark Crystal and submit your design online. The winner will be awarded $500 and their concept design will be crafted and built by Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™ to make a possible cameo appearance in the upcoming Netflix original series The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance.

This small, woodland creature must be a brand new concept – it cannot be a variation of an existing species, e.g., Skeksis, Mystic, Podling. All ideas are welcome, as long as they feel true to the world of The Dark Crystal, without being a variation of an existing Brian Froud drawing. Please include at least a front and side view of your new creature. In addition, please provide a paragraph of 50–100 words about your new creature, including a name, brief back story and characteristics of the creature.

Your submission should include one or more still images submitted as JPGs or PNGs. Pencil drawings, paintings, digital drawings, digital paintings, and digital models are all acceptable, however the final submission must be as JPG or PNG files.

Contestants may submit more than one entry.

Judges may include the Froud family – Brian, Wendy, and Toby Froud (or other experts selected by The Jim Henson Company in its sole discretion).


Submissions are due November 22, 2017
