Transformation contest 2008
With the site reopening (see below), I considered the occasion as an opportunity to announce the 2008 edition of the Dragoniade Transformation Contest. Last year, the contest has been held in Deviant Art and went pretty smoothly. But with the site's new gallery opening, this year, it will be held here.
Once again, I will be the happy/surprised/unhappy (victim?) of a transformation. The transformed will be me, and the transformation must be either into a animal or creatures featured in any media, a character specie featured in any media, an alteration to match a character or specie from any media, or through a trigger from any media. So this isn't just restricted to animal transformation. Body alteration (growth, extra arms, muscle, etc) are accepted too, as long it respect the mentioned rule. Mind you, human to human TF without an alteration doesn't count.
Need some examples?

And so on. As you can see, the transformation concept isn't necessarily in the media in question, as long as the character isn't human (Free Willy, Black Stallion). If you can find a media featuring a non-human character or a trigger for a transformation and then you're set. It can be any media, from Lilo & Stitch's experiment to any Final Fantasy monster; from the Spider-man Comic to the Choose Your Own Adventures books. The choices are yours.
Simply submit your choice as described above, with the media name and trigger chosen.
