By [Kuramasgirl]!




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.


Note: For images larger than 500 pixels wide, you will need wikiprivs to upload these larger images to a wiki page.

Any entry that does not follow the "Gryphon theme", will be removed.

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

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.

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


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 Gryphon-page on the entire Internet.

2009-08-10 [Kuramasgirl]: Or....You could just draw what you feel is best for yourself and not care if you win or not? o_o;

2009-08-11 [FamousPanda]: Exactly [Kuramasgirl] That is what everyone should be doing anyway.

2009-08-11 [Ravenclaw]: Quick question: Does it have to follow the eagle/lion combo or can we mix and match like owls and house cats or ravens and black panthers?

DIBS *wags finger at anyone who might consider nicking her idea*

2009-08-11 [Chimes]: I would say that it has to follow the eagle/lion combo because it's not an atypical contest.

2009-08-11 [Ravenclaw]: I didn't notice anything in the rules, that's why I asked.

2009-08-11 [Alexi Ice]: Though...that sounds really cool O.o

2009-08-11 [Chimes]: Cool or not, this contest isn't atypical...

2009-08-11 [Kuramasgirl]: You could always make another contest for atypical gryphons, [Ravenclaw]. :) If there isn't one around here already, of course...

2009-08-12 [jacen81]: So, what you should to is take what is typical and be creative with it (pose, background, etc...)

2009-08-12 [Ravenclaw]: Background? Ha *chuckels* your funny lol, me + background= big honkin' mess. But I might get a wild hair and join. I've not done a gryphon in a while and there's more than one type of eagle to choose from.

2009-08-12 [iippo]: Well the aim of the ECM contests is to find the best typical picture of the creature in question.

2009-08-12 [arthemis_]: We know, we know! :D I will have a hard time with this one! I hope I'll get one in on time :) *haven't started yet, shame on me*

2009-08-13 [Ravendust]: I don't have a scanner, though I cleaned the image as best as I can. If the quality is still bad I'll take any advice I can get on how to improve it... ^^;;

2009-08-13 [Ravenclaw]: Question: If the contests starts on May 6th, 09 then how can it end on January 10th, 09? Is there gonna be time travel involved? Cause if so I think we should put our destination to a vote. I'm quite particular to the old west or the Renaissance, sans the plague.

2009-08-13 [Erubeus]: It started June 5th. It ends October 1st. :9

2009-08-13 [Ravenclaw]: Ok I feel stupid but it still looks wrong.

2009-08-13 [Ravendust]: It says January 1st for the end date, perhaps a mistype? lol:

Contest Began: 05-06-2009.
Contest Ends: 01-10-2009.

2009-08-13 [Ravenclaw]: Lol still looks like May and January to me. Fagedaboudit

2009-08-13 [nehirwen]: In America it's known as military dates I believe? In Europe it's plain normal to write dates like that. Perhaps that's why I don't see how it's logical to see May and January in that. x) (I mean, why would one put the month and year not next to each other..)

2009-08-13 [Aeolynn]: Cause that is what americans do. Why not just say October 1st? I thought it was january, and I don't know if the glass eyes i ordered for my gryphon will be here :[

2009-08-13 [nehirwen]: It's logical cause Americans do it? O.o
I hope those eyes arrive in time! :o
