ECM Centaur art



ECM Centaur Art

Submissions of non-photo artwork and media.



For the general rules see Elftown Creature Marathon#RULES!

Copied art is NOT permissible in Elftown's Official Contests. Please see: Copying vs Fanart & Referencing.

Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But, if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries.

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.

Any entry that does not follow the "Centaur theme", will be removed.
If you feel any of the entries break the rules, please speak up before the entries make it to the polls. You can still speak up even after the contest is closed, as long as the polls have not yet gone up yet. Complaints received after the aforementioned will not be considered valid.

All mediums, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animations will be accepted.

REMEMBER THE GOAL: We want the BEST QUALITY images to represent Elftown having the best Centaur Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!

When the finalists are posted in the Main Street Poll or on a public poll page, the participants are not allowed to beg for votes for their own entry. Do not ask people to vote for your entry via private messages, guestbook messages, moods, wikis, or by any other means. Your entry will be disqualified if you are caught doing so. It is perfectly fine to advertise THE POLL, however.

Brief description:

Centaurs are creatures which are half human, and half horse. They have the arms, torso and head of a human, and the body and legs of a horse. They are traditionally male. But since we live in modern times, we accept female centaurs as well.

Aside from the regular rewards, as mentioned on Elftown Creature Marathon, the winner will receive credit for contributing to what we hope will be the best Centaur-page on the entire Internet.


How to post your entry:
Add your username and entry after the last one that has been already posted. Number your entries, thumbnail them to 300 (Please upload big images!), and separate them with the <hr> tag:

Title your entries, please!

A title more than just "Centaur" is needed.
Thank you!

2010-02-03 [jacen81]: God, I really hope I have time to do this.

2010-02-03 [Alexi Ice]: Well then, I must wish you the best of luck.

2010-02-16 [Serwa]: I'm working on an entry. Sketch can be seen on me house.

2010-02-26 [arthemis_]: No one entered yet? Why? *goes to work on her own entry*

2010-02-26 [SilverFire]: Maybe they're all still working on their entries like you & SirWaka. :)

2010-03-12 [Zab]: *working* :P

2010-03-12 [arthemis_]: *also working* ;D

2010-03-13 [jacen81]: Likewise... I hope I make the deadline.

2010-03-22 [Zab]: Mine's done :)
A bit too dark perhaps..:/

2010-03-22 [Kuramasgirl]: Zab, that's awesome! :D
And I like how dark it is. <3

2010-03-23 [Zab]: Thanks! :D

2010-04-02 [Alexi Ice]: The deadline has been extended a month! <3

2010-04-02 [Zab]: Bleh! :P *feels threathened by that*

2010-04-03 [Kuramasgirl]: Ooh, I could actually enter something now. >D

2010-04-03 [Zab]: Nooooooo! :P

2010-04-03 [Kuramasgirl]: Muahahahaha....

2010-04-24 [arthemis_]: Introducing my new style: Abstract. I'm experimenting with abstract and lines, and I hope it's still within the rules of this contest. I believe through the well placed lines you still can recognize a centaur in it :)

2010-04-25 [SilverFire]: Cool line-art, but I don't think it really classes as abstract. :)

2010-04-25 [Zab]: I'm probably the wrong person to mention it, since I'm participating.. but is nr. 5 eally classified as a centaur? Looks more like ''cow-taur'' to me, with the horns and tail..?

Perhaps the artist would like to make a new entry before the time's out, so I figured I could ask/mention it now. Would have said something earlier if I'd noticed it, to let the artist have more time..

But perhaps I'm the only one who doesn't think it meets the theme, and I'm not the one to decide if it's following the rules or not. :)

2010-04-25 [Chimes]: Hmmm. After thinking about it, I think you might be right - the description does explicitly say 'horse'.

2010-04-26 [Alexi Ice]: Maybe they don't know what a horse tail looks like? the BODY part looks like a horse to me. The horns could just give it a little spice. I say it's fine but I will defenitly ask the other mods about it.
 The thing is, though, since ECM is a 'typical' fariy tale contest and the entries have to be the know what I mean, then a few of these entries wouldn't make the cut either. The way I see it, anyway
