If the Far Cry universe can extend to any zone, then I think that we should see a wider variety of creatures, places, and people when traveling around Hope County. After all, this is a world with confirmed aliens and mysterious government agents running around. There should be some weird stuff in there!

Our winner this week is Villings. I’ll be honest and tell you that this was one of the most difficult ‘Shop Contests that I’ve had to judge in a minute, and that’s because the entries were of such high quality. Villings wins out, though, for the sheer compositional skill on display here. That dude and dog are just fishing the heck outta that space station.

We have lots of honorable mentions, though, and I encourage you to go look at all of the entries in the comments on the original thread.

Alright, Villings might have produced my favorite ‘shop on the Citadel, but god damn did Gaseous Clay and Done With Kinja not hit me right in my 80s kid feels; good show, you lot!

..and religiousjedi knows the fury that goddamned dog brings out in all of us.

An excellent effort by all involved!  I really enjoy these contests, and seeing just how talented the readership around here is!
