Anti Cute

This challenge closed over 6 years ago.

The Challenge

Are you surrounded by cuteness EVERY WHERE YOU TURN?!! Cats and butterflies and pretty flowers in every group on every home page in every feature??? A challenge for pictures of animals in human clothing? I’D RATHER DIE!!!
Enough!! It’s time to turn loose the adult in everyone and seek for the ANTi-CUTE!! Surely such talented artists and photographers as on RB can find beauty and spirit while bringing out the very antithesis of “cute”!
No flowers or butterflies unless they have fangs! No cats unless they have shotguns! No babies unless they’re being threatened by cats with shotguns, and THAT’S the challenge avatar!
Stay within RB guidelines and avoid the gross and disgusting. Really, where’s the challenge in that?
If it makes your mother say, “Awww”, don’t enter it. If it makes your bratty kid brother say, “Awww”, for god’s sake, CALL THE HAZMAT TEAM!!
Entry is open to all works in all mediums except play-doh!
Vote for those entries that are visually stunning, emotionally powerful, and anything but cute. And vote without mercy!
