Greetings, and welcome to Elftown's official 'Council Portrait Gallery Donations' wiki!
This wiki has the goal to create a 'Council Portrait Gallery': Each council member will be portrayed separately and the images will be gathered to form a portrait gallery.

General Rules:

1. No stealing. Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist.

2.Tracing and paint overs are not accepted. Referencing is fine, and you can find images of the council members in Crew-Photo references

3. Quality issues. Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, drawings on lined notebook paper, or poor quality scannings of your drawings will not be accepted. Drawings must be well shaded and/or coloured.

4.Each member may submit an unlimited amount of entries.

5. All images must be uploaded to Elftown
To upload your image full-size you can use the feature 'Upload a folder of images' that is shown on your house.
This feature allows you to upload one, multiple images or zip-files in their original size to a wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

6.Subject matter:
Since the winners will be featured on Council Portrait Gallery, images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed.

All mediums, except photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted.

Specific Rules:

1. The entrant selects a Council member to draw and submits the image. The council member selects the entry he/she likes best to be exhibited in the gallery.

2. The Council member can reject an entry if they feel that it is unrepresentative of them.
To ensure a good outcome, feel free to contact your subject for any hints and tips.

3. Fanart style (ie. drawing the councilperson in the style of, or with references to, movies, books, games etc...) is allowed, but it is recommended you confer with your subject about it first.


Deadline: There is no deadline, the project is on-going.

Participants will receive a 'Portraitists' badge:

2006-10-02 [nober]: Help! I am confused! How does this contest work? Do you make a drawing of your own made-up council member? Are there council members who exist who we are supposed to draw?? Lemme in on this one...

2006-10-02 [Zab]: There are councilmembers that you're supposed to draw, look at Crew-Photo references, the council and the other links at the bottom of this wiki.:)

2007-02-15 [Once upon a dream]: I dont have a scanner, If I can take a picture and I think it came out good...May I enter it??

2007-02-16 [iippo]: Yes. It's indeed perfectly possible to get good quality digital images by photographing the work. :)
*spams for photographing art for people who don't believe this*

2007-02-16 [Zab]: The rules say no tho... but I do agree with you iippo...

2007-02-16 [iippo]: The rule is a quality issue because not all know how to take a good photo... It's impossible to tell the difference between a good digital photograph and a scan, anyway. So if the digital photo is good quality, just put it up and don't tell anyone it's not a scan :P

2007-02-16 [Once upon a dream]: Hahaha, okay! Thankyou so much! ^^

2007-03-13 [Mikie9191]: *iippo said "It's impossible to tell the difference between a good digital photograph and a scan, anyway". This is FACT! I spent the first 3 years of my professional life in a repro house doing (amongst other things) flat copy of images and text. If the subject is well lit, the results can surpass the quality of an entry level scanner :D
For best results get your original flat and position 2 lights at 45 degrees either side of your subject. Alternatively, use a bright windowsil :P

2008-05-13 [Triola]: [SilverFire]'s image has been up for over eight months now, so I was wondering if mebbe I could get a fully coloured badge? :3

2008-05-13 [SilverFire]: O_O Good grief, has it really been that long? >_< Damn time.

2008-05-14 [iippo]: Sorry, I'll get onto that ASAP >.<

2008-07-23 [SilverFire]: Question: is 'fanart' allowed in this contest? As in... *thinks of example* Say if I drew Cali as a sailor scout from Sailor Moon? :P Would that be allowed, or no?

2008-07-23 [Lady of Lore]: Hmmm....good question and interesting idea. I would think it would be okay since it a portrait of a council member and as long as it still fits that I think it would be okay. Of course others may disagree (:P I still have some drawings of myself in sailor moon style from years ago)

2008-07-25 [iippo]: I'd say it's okay, but I would recommend asking the subject of the portrait first (unless you know they really love Sailor Moon and would be utterly chuffed to be drawn as fanarty thing).

I'd also maybe give the councilperson1 the right to veto fanart portraits... Like, if they really hate pokemon and someone draws them as a pokemon, they have the right to have it removed from the list of portraits (the whole "unrepresentative image" thingie). But apart from that, I think many people would like to see themselves drawn in the style of something they are a fan of. :)

1 Your mac suggested that word. It's a funny word so I'm going to use it from now on. All the time. Even when it's not at all relevant.

2008-11-21 [FamousPanda]: i drew a picture of [Ramirez], how will i submit it? im kinda confused here

2009-01-12 [Lady of Lore]: Click on the link for the page Ramirez is on and then edit the page. Find where Ramirez is and add your entry after any others and number it as so. Does that help?

2009-01-12 [FamousPanda]: yes thank you, I had already submitted it a while ago, but i couldn't figure out what to do because Ramirez didn't have a page.

2009-02-19 [Hedda]: Ouch, that was a big alarm. I hope I didn't annoy people too much. <img:stuff/mood11-gif.gif>

I think new members find this fun. It used to be pretty popular before, but it was a little forgotten until now. <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2009-02-19 [Mortified Penguin]: I hate you guys... tempting me with shiny badges...

2009-02-19 [Flisky]: Ahh!! The shiny badge!! No!!

Now I'll have to do it because it was an alarm...But who to draw...Hmmm...
