Bullseye! Custom Contest
Without a doubt one of the oldest and most important inventions of mankind is the bow and arrow. For thousands of years it ruled the battle field and even after being made obsolete by the gun it has still retained a place of honor within our culture. The goal of this contest is to create a custom of an archer. At first glance there doesn't seem to be a lot of archers out there to pick from, but I assure you there are many more characters to pick from beyond Hawkeye and the Green Arrow family. Such as Shaft, Sailor Mars, Pit, Golden Archer, Yondu, Legolas, Celestial Archer, Cupid, Moonstar, Katniss, Trickshot, White Feather Arwyn...I could go on, but you get the point.

Also characters don't need to be an archer exclusively to qualify for this contest. So people like Rambo, Storm Shadow, Aragorn, Robin Hood, Zaran, Oddjob, Taskmaster, Link, Turok and Lara Croft are all fair game.

-Though it's debatable whether or not crossbows belong in the same category as bows, for the purpose of this contest they do. So feel free to bring on the Huntresses, Scarlets, Buffys and Daryl Dixons.

-Bowcasters however will not be allowed for this contest. They are simply too far removed from the original concept and they are much closer to a gun than a bow. Sorry Star Wars fans no wookies this time, you'll have to settle for Ewoks.

-No dioramas will be allowed for this contest.

-As always there are no size restrictions for this contest. You may use any sort of materials, parts, tools or techniques that you wish. Whatever gets the job done..
Please remember to follow the Contest Rules and to Vote Fairly.

Not necessarily, I can think of at least 6 instances of people using energy bows.

How about an energy bow? Like one of those bows that create an arrow of energy when you pull the string back? too advanced?

Those are okay, the essence of a traditional bow is still present.

How about ballistae? They're essentially just gigantic crossbows; more-or-less the ancient equivalent of modern artillery cannons.

Ballistae are fair game. Also props for knowing the plural of ballista.
