Welcome to the fourth iteration of the Altered Reality Challenge! In this challenge artists were given the prompt to either season shift a card, or "winter-mogrify" thus transforming it to be clearly a winter theme. This has become our biggest ARC so far with twelve entries!
Last Altered Reality Challenge there were some issues with voting, we've rectified the issues with the voting system.
The three individuals who will be judging this round of Altered Reality Challenge are: Drew Sitte, Andre Garcia, and myself - Trick Jarrett.
That's right, I'll be judging this round of the Altered Reality Challenge!
Now, onto the entries!

Winter is Coming
Description: After half an hour of pouring over Christmas movies looking for inspiration, I came to the realization that winter, for being the season most associated with cold and darkness, sure does have a lot of over-happy films. I decided that I wanted to go in the other direction, and George R. R. Martin's Game of Thrones series (and its new HBO TV adaptation) gave me the perfect inspiration. I really feel that as alter artists, we very rarely get to tell a story with our work. I really love that this piece breaks that, and leaves you with an ominous feeling, even if you've never read the books (which I strongly recommend!).
Low-Fat Bacon Topped Sundae
Description: A rich 3-d paper chocolate/caramel skeleton coated with a delicious paper iced vanilla glaze in a wonder land of paper winter flavors or a 11 layer 3-d card modified for winter awesomeness
Maybe Next Year
Description for Civilized Scholar:
Description for Homicidal Brute:
Description: I've finally got around to working up a submission for an ARC. I'd love the idea behind them and judging the first was a blast. My Mucha-inspired pieces have received a fair bit of praise lately so I thought it prudent to go down that avenue. This was sort of a top-down alteration where I had a specific image in mind and had to find the right canvas for it. I think Path ended up a great fit - especially if you'r opponent searches up a Snow-Covered land.
Let Me In!
Red and the Wolf
Description: Please allow me to introduce myself i am Miguel Hernandez and im still pretty new to altering cards.This is my entry Red and the Wolf, I decided to do a fairy tale style card that would fit with the winter wonder land theme. I hope you enjoy.

Buddy the Elf
Description: Bloodbraid Elf turned into a cotton-headed ninny-muggins.
Description: Frosty needs to be a little more careful which friends he invites over to play.
Village Snowsmith / Snowfang
Description: This 3d compilation alter showcases the lighter side of our new furry friends of innistrad, while also building on maro's comments that not only creatures can be flip cards. The changing of the card frame helps tie in the winter feel to the card.
