Thank you to all that contributed!



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 "Drow theme", will be removed.

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

- The BEST QUALITY images
- The MOST TYPICAL "Drow" images
- LARGE IMAGES represent Elftown having the best Drow Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!
This may be helpful: Drow.

Brief description:
Appearance (from Drow):
The Drow are characterized by white hair, which can vary between all tones of gray. White-copper and white-silver hair are also spotted every now and again, but usually indicates foreign blood.
The main chunk of Drow has red eyes, which stems from their ability to use heat vision. Other colors sometimes appear, but again, most indicate foreign blood. The red shade can be everything from flashlight to almost purple red. Though purple itself is usually an indication of blindness.


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 Drow-page on the entire Internet.

Three important notations:

---> #1: 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!
---> #2: 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.
---> #3: For discussions about the Elftown competitions: Here it's discussed if an entry is in accordance with the rules and similarly more complicated issues that can't be solved with a simple wiki-comment. Go to: <forum:Elftown contests>

/Thank you - the ECM Mods and the Elftown Council.

A title more than just "Drow" is needed.

2009-01-22 [allenp]: lol....a month....mines looking at 6 years! :)

2009-01-23 [moira hawthorne]: mine is old aswell... but i gave him abit of a facelift in recolouring...

2009-01-23 [Artsieladie]: Linn, your entry is stiil good! It doesn't appear to be 'spoiled', yet, after a month. *wiesenheimer grin* [allenp]'s is still superb after 6 years! The preservation is remarkable! lol *ish in a silly mood*

Very nice, Moira! :) Me liking all the Drows!

I'm going to have to put up in bold print asking for Titles with entries, please!, because I need titles with the entries, and something more than just "Drow". ;P Thank you to everyone who has. :)

2009-01-24 [Artsieladie]: Thank you for the titles! Luffles all for your co-operation! :D

2009-01-24 [Falx]: <img:> Thought y'all might get a chuckle out of this. He's my drow scout.

2009-02-05 [Morphea]: Finally I am done with my entry!!!

2009-02-05 [moira hawthorne]: a white drow! Ha! thats the way I always perceived them...

2009-02-05 [Artsieladie]: *smiles* Thanks for sharing, [Falx]! :) "From hell", [Morphea]? lol Neat! :)

2009-02-05 [Morphea]: The title was something that just popped up in my head when I was finished. Any other suggestions for a title is most welcome ;)....And if there is a problem of her being whitish grey and not dark grey in her skincolor please let me know and I will withdraw my entry.

2009-02-05 [Artsieladie]: Oh, 'hell', I say leave it. hehe I'd like to hear what [Linn Scarlett] thinks about the skin colour. :)

2009-02-06 [Morphea]: hehe ok I`ll wait to hear what [Linn Scarlett] thinks before I do something about it.

2009-02-06 [Jitter]: She could be an albino drow. We had one once in our D&D and she was exiled for that :P ALthough she's definitely not typical. And the contest is supposed to be for typical drows. Sorry honey :(

2009-02-06 [moira hawthorne]: typical is such a nasty word... like mundane1 boring!

2009-02-06 [Morphea]: hehe [Jitter] An albino.....good thinking :P
I have no problem of darkening her skin but I`ll wait until [Linn Scarlett] has voiced her oppinion.
Just hope I get an answer so I have time to do it before the deadline.
I kinda like her pale skin. It was not intended to be this light but I liked what I saw when I was painting it. I think all artist have had this experience.....a piece takes on a life of it`s own in the creation prosess and it turns out quite different than what the artist intended. I always find that exiting.

2009-02-06 [Morphea]: "And the contest is supposed to be for typical drows. Sorry honey :("......AH sorry ...did not see that......I will darken her then :D

2009-02-06 [Jitter]: I know what you mean. Some of my best works mutated their own way x)

[Morphea] I can't find it where it says so but all ECMs so far were about the typical looks of the creature :/ I really love your albino there though, maybe you could make a dark skinned one too and leave that one be? :o

I know Linn is like the queen of drow etc but in the books their skin is usually referred to as ebony (I'm a wee bit drow fan as well :P)

2009-02-07 [Morphea]: I know that ECMs are about the most typical. But I liked her this way so much that I hoped no one would notice. LOL Can`t blame a girl for trying ;) ;P hihi I am now in the prosess of darkening her skin.

2009-02-07 [Jitter]: I hope it works and won't ruin her! Good luck :3

2009-02-07 [Morphea]: `Well.... it is changed. 

2009-02-07 [Jitter]: Oooh I still like :D Go you :D

2009-02-07 [Morphea]: Thanks :D Me like yours.Go you too ;) ;P
