1. NO STEALING! Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed. Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e. no fuzzy or blurry photographs where we can't actually see what's happening. Any such entry will be removed.


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.

a) Images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed.
b) Please stay loyal to the [#theme]!

5. MEDIUMS: The medium allowed is photo manipulation. But please make sure that all material used for the manipulation is your own or you have permission to use it. Otherwise it will be removed for copyright infringement.
-You can find a big selection of Public Domain images at Reference Pictures
-You will have to make a wiki for your entry where you should list ALL the stock you used and link of where did you find it. Don't lie, we have ways to know if the images are yours.


Theme and deadline

What will we be expecting?
The theme is: There's not a strict theme on this contest but the images have to be dark/creepy and maybe even cute while creepy. Nothing too garrish or gory, just good old dark twisted/surreal art.


19 April 2009

Ten Manips will be chosen by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented. Elftown members will choose the {number} winners through a Mainstreet poll.

Please Note: Asking people to vote for you is against the rules. Although you may advertise the Main Street Poll in your mood, diary, or house, it is against Elftown Official Competition rules to directly ask people to vote for you or influence people to vote for you through use of public wikis, diary entries, messages, in your mood, etc.

The winners will receive the colored badge and the participants will receive the green version of it:

2009-02-01 [Jitter]: I like it and I think it's good. We can always post a preview on MS like we do with Nudity :) I'll ask Hedda too but I think it's not too bad :)

2009-02-01 [MisLuck]: Thank you. =)

2009-02-01 [Jitter]: You're welcome! I'm always stalking your nifty work :P :)

2009-02-01 [Chimes]: She's right. :P It is pretty nifty :)

2009-02-01 [MisLuck]: Thank you, now you're just making me blush :D
I haven't been doing much these stuff for a while so am a bit rusty. Trying to do another pic but this... just doesn't work. :(

2009-02-01 [Chimes]: My tip: Textures. :] Use 'em. Sometimes they can hide things you dislike... others they just inhance... I am a texture fiend.

2009-02-01 [Jitter]: I still need texture tutorials. I'm sure I'm doing them all wrong :s

2009-02-01 [Chimes]: Which program do you use?

2009-02-01 [Jitter]: Photoshop cs2.

I never read any texture tutorial. I'm just going nuts with bleding modes

2009-02-01 [MisLuck]: The default textures are quite nice. I usually either duplicate the layer I want the texture in, or put a faint colour layer on the top of the picture, add texture there and then blend it to the parts I want it to show. I use the clouds WAY too much, and the woodlike texture. You can also draw your own texture on a layer on the top of them all and then blend it in.

2009-02-01 [Chimes]: Ah, I use Gimp. :] Hardlight Textures = love. :]

2009-02-01 [Jitter]: I have tons of textures both default and downloads ones x)

2009-02-01 [Chimes]: As do I... but I tend to stick to the same ones. XD

2009-02-01 [Chimes]: [MisLuck], Hedda said it was fine ^^

2009-02-01 [MisLuck]: OKay, Thank you! =)

2009-02-01 [MisLuck]: Oh nuts, I can only find the unmanipulated original one, not the versions while I was making it >:(
Damn unorganized CD's and DVD's.

2009-02-01 [Jitter]: Use that one and crop it? :) All we want is list the stock you used ^^

2009-02-01 [MisLuck]: I would have wantd to show it a bit bigger as that is so small :S Well, I think must put it at least as a placeholder and try to recreate it so can have the bigger version if I just will have the time. I used only default brushes and filters, do I have to mention only that or try to remember all of which of them I used?

2009-02-02 [Jitter]: No. Take a look at the other stockwikis to see :) Just list stock if you used default brushes :)

2009-04-20 [Jitter]: Voting at Et Dark Arts Voting
