Well it seems like we only got two entries, and despite initial interest the contest did not appear to remain popular. People may just be busy at this time of year though, so we'll have to try again in the future. Due to low turn out I think I'm just going to accept both entries as winners rather than make a poll for two options. Congratulations to the two that did enter (and win)!

Just requested to join and saw that I need to show some examples first. I'm pretty sure that I contributed a few pieces a few years ago, but here is a couple of newer things. They're not the best, but I'm out of practice.

The second one kinda turned into a piece of abstract art because it was too big to fit in my scanner, but it was originally based on speculative evolution.

Can we renew competitions?

We do, and we are currently considering the possibility of adding a folder for such deviations.

For some reason I feel like creating a sapient raven.

I'm done with the sapient raven, but it's still waiting for it to be approved.

I know that most life on Earth receives its energy from electromagnetism because our autotrophs feed off of photon energy brought by light.

I theorize that life based on the Weak Force could feed off of W/Z Boson energy from radioactive decay. Now, as I said before, plants can easily receive photons from light, which is easily accessible provided you have a sun, but does anyone know were radioactive decay can be accessed by Weak Force life forms?

Interesting idea! I'm afraid I don't but I'll bring your idea up on the forums and see if anybody has any ideas regarding that and let you know.

We got a quick response!

"These particles have a half life for 3e-25 seconds, even if they were travelling at 0.99 c they would only get 9e-17m metres. A proton is 1.5e-18m in diameter, a hydrogen atom is 5e-11m. These bosons have mass and a specific energy, so relativity-based velocity fudging isn't possible."

I'm afraid your idea isn't really plausible. Kind of breaks my heart, really: it was a spectacularly novel idea. If you're interested in a similar idea though there are organisms in Chernobyl called radiotrophic fungus that convert gamma radiation into chemical energy much like plants convert light through photosynthesis.
