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.

2008-11-20 [Artsieladie]: Ok, will do, Linn. :) I'm glad the image issue got resolved for you [Kahri]! We prefer large images. :) Thanks [Linderel] for your help! :) All of my art is usually very huge, because they need to be huge for T-shirts. But I usually resize the image to 500 W and save that 500 one just for the slot in the house. It's better to resize it in the program, rather than have ET do the resizing. :P

2008-11-20 [Linn Scarlett]: That too, of course :)

2008-12-07 [Black Raven]: Wow!I like all

2008-12-09 [Linn Scarlett]: *ponders on other random information* purple or violet-blue eyes are often an indication of blindness amongst Drow. Blue eyes denote a lessened sight as well, but this is mostly due to the human blood producing the blue eyes (deminished night vision and all that). Normal colour ranges are yellowish-orange to burgundy or even slightly purple-blood red. So pretty much all red and orange shades. Yellow or green is associated with certain chronic and terminal diseases, especially cave blight. All other shades are often seen as results of mixed blood for a Drow of 100% decent can never ever ever ever ever have any other shade of eye colour than orange or red shades. Ever. If you're special, then your ancestors screwed around, basically :p Seeing as Drow are pretty much all grey or blackish of skin, eye colour is a very much favoured source for discrimination. Especially the mixed-blood category. Yup, they're meanies.

2008-12-09 [Linn Scarlett]: Same goes with most hair colours. Normal is everything from moderate light grey shades to snow and blue white to pearl coloured. Everything else is defiant in one way or another. Pearling or yellowing (can be) a sign of old age. If a Drow gets lucky and hits 400-500 years their hair might get a distinct old-cobweb sort of colour. (note: naturally this implies that Meldor either paints or magics his hair white, as he's near 500 and it's still the same colour as his centuries younger son's) Metallic colours are rare, some see them as 'special' (psychics, seers, gifted otherwise) or mixed breeds. On the latter account distinct blonde, brown and red earth towns are much more common results of mixed blood. Funky hair colours either indicate an outrageously expensive hairdresser or demon/devil blood. Snow white and blue white seem to be the most popular hair colours and I am quite sure half the nobles have their hair dyed with whatever means to achieve this colour as these really really really bright whites are actually quite rare. Like white-blonde and really thoroughly blue-black are quite rare amongst us. Ok. Unless you're Scandinavian or Scottish. But ehhh you get my idea.

2008-12-09 [Linn Scarlett]: /end randomness :P

2008-12-10 [Jitter]: I feel so proud that I already knew these :3

2008-12-10 [Linn Scarlett]: *chuckles* good good ^_^

2008-12-11 [Artsieladie]: Thank you for your words of wisdom, Linn. Your randomness I appreciate. :)

2008-12-24 [Linn Scarlett]: I can't help it sometimes :P

2008-12-25 [Artsieladie]: I know. I prefer randomness and spontaneity anyhow, though. It falls under the theory I like so much of thinking and being not afraid to do stuff 'outside the box'. ;P

2008-12-30 [Linn Scarlett]: Ehh I've just started a big phat parody on my stay at this site, along with a friend we are writing a story and put everybody in, in slightly different positions, with slightly different looks, and different names. But if you know who they are supposed to be, its glaringly obvious :p

2008-12-31 [Artsieladie]: Hmm.. sounds interesting. :)

2009-01-02 [Linn Scarlett]: its hilarious :P especially since we each had a minor crush on someone, which is being horribly abused in the story :p

2009-01-02 [Artsieladie]: Hmm... sounds more interesting! ;)

2009-01-02 [arthemis_]: Finished... What do you guys think?

2009-01-02 [moira hawthorne]: interestin perspective [arthemis_]

2009-01-03 [arthemis_]: It was a challenge indeed. But I like it, makes the portrayed more important or something...

2009-01-06 [Artsieladie]: [pegasus1000], do you have a large version of your entry? I can't really see much in the size you have posted. It might be just me, because my eyesight isn't very good. ;P

2009-01-22 [Linn Scarlett]: Hmm contemplating on making a new one... This picture is already more than a month old that I've up now...

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