Prompt 01

A Winter Scene with Aliens

The aliens have landed deep in the English countryside on a particularly snowy day. You can make out their hawk-wing craft scudding off into the distance. The aliens themselves are able to take many forms. Here we can see one has tried to form itself into an odd combination of rock and wading bird. The two in the middle are crosses between a black pudding and a diseased bovine. Far away at the back of the field, we can just make out the 18th-century alien hunters, intrigued, but ever so slightly terrified.
