Impulsive Cosmopha-Jerry by AylaStarDragon Impulsive Cosmopha-Jerry by AylaStarDragon
Did I go too far with the title?  Sounding a bit too Thesaurus-y, I think.

Okay, so the basic story behind the picture:

Jerry manages to convince Rick to take the family on a sort of vacation across some of the more "safe" dimensions out in the infinite multiverse.  After some jabbing insults from Jerry's father-in-law over his ineptitude to keep his family happy during one of their stops, he takes Rick's interdimensional portal device and manages to transport himself to a strange, rocky wasteland.  The family passes into the dimension, where Rick and Jerry start scuffling over control of the portal device, which results in the device being accidentally flung into a deep pit of boiling hot fluid.  Days pass by as they look for signs of anything that could either result in their rescue or lead to the recovery of the portal device.  Sores and calluses begin to form, their clothes rip from the rocky terrain, and even Rick ends up badly injured and needing a sling to carry his broken arm, which Morty gladly gives his shirt in order to help his grandfather and to better stand the unrelenting heat himself.

Starving, they give traveling the sweltering, humid expanse one last try.  Suddenly, Jerry spots something!  A table, pristine, as if someone had laid it out for him to get one last bit to eat before everyone else started cannibalizing each other.  But the allure of the white table sheets doesn't escape the rest for long.  A race to what seems to be their only source of food commences!  However, Rick begins to realize by the sudden rumblings of the ground beneath him that their voracity will lead them all to mortal danger.  The delicious meal upon the extraordinarily out-of-place dining table was more than what it seemed...

This is easily the cleverest of the contest entries, and something that wouldn't feel out of place on the show.

It's ridiculous that this didn't even place in the top three. The others might have had a more sophisticated art style, but they also didn't make much sense, or relied too much on lazy callbacks. Yours was the only one creative enough that it actually felt like it could have been from the show.

If it's any consolation, someone shared your picture somewhere on the web and it was the drawing that finally got me to watch Rick and Morty! Haha. Your drawing really does fit the personality of the show and I hope you know you did really well on it! You still got fans! :D

Wow! This is so great and terrible idea too.
Be eaten by a person present and that's only because the reality has been postponed.

Also our reality was already a bit safer and indigenouser.

I don't think you went too far with the title.  In fact, it may have helped you :) .  Oh yeah, the picture is great and after reading the story, I could see this happening.  When I first saw the picture, I remembered an old cartoon I saw MANY years ago.  It was The Killing of an Egg by Paul Driesse.  It was this cartoon, did you ever see it before?:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=1z-XTe…

You did a good job illustrating the dire situation the family is in.  Congrats on getting into the semi-finals.

I also like your animated thumbnail.  It kind of reminds me of the gif I made for the contest.  If you get a chance, please give it a look over:  www.deviantart.com/art/Shamele…
