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.

2009-08-04 [Chimes]: It's technically about the contest, so they should be able to leave it here, Akane. That's why I didn't tell them to move it. If there's a question, I will see it. They're not causing any problems.

2009-08-04 [Alexi Ice]: Alrighty then ^^ Sowwie.

2009-08-04 [jacen81]: It is most definitely about the contest. If sculpture is an allowable medium, I might do one as well.

2009-08-04 [Chimes]: I do believe we'll be allowing it, since the demand isn't high enough for it to get its own section. :)

2009-08-05 [jacen81]: Shame...

2009-08-05 [Alexi Ice]: We seem to be getting a lot of intrest in it though, so you might look out for future sculpture contests! <3 Besides this one, I mean.

2009-08-05 [jacen81]: i would be most interested... I guess for this one a prisma color "sculpture" will have to suffice.

2009-08-05 [nehirwen]: I'm not aware of that 'lot of interest' in sculpture contests, where did you see/notice that Akane? O.o

2009-08-05 [Aeolynn]: *raises hand* I would like some sculpture contests ^^

2009-08-05 [nehirwen]: I would think so, just as [jacen81]. :p
But to make an official contest for only 2 elftowners that are interested in participating isn't very exciting is it. ;)
That's why I want to know where/who the lot are. :)

2009-08-05 [Alexi Ice]: Well, I shall make it my job to find them! (Let's see how many I can dig up)

2009-08-06 [arthemis_]: OMG [Kuruni] why would I even bother to compete with that being entered ;) Amazing!

2009-08-07 [FamousPanda]: That's what I'm sayin.

2009-08-07 [jacen81]: Why not? Kuruni may be just the inspiration needed to increase the skill level here. I have seen other of Kuruni's works. A talented artist indeed, but this is not one of my favorites.

2009-08-07 [Erubeus]: I personally like [Kuramasgirl]'s picture.
It doesn't look stiff like all the other drawings.
It looks like it's alive in the picture.

2009-08-07 [jacen81]: Note to all contestants, If you seriously expect to win, I would suggest color, that is unless you understand how to display a great deal of value (graduation from light to dark)in your works. Just a suggestion.

2009-08-08 [Kuramasgirl]: Aw, thank you Erubeus. :D I like the pose you chose in yours.

Note taken, but unless I suddenly find a great deal of time and patience, I probably won't be drawing an entirely new picture and then taking the time to color it. :3 This just happened to inspire me, and I doubt I'd catch it again. Thanks all the same.

2009-08-09 [Alexi Ice]: Note to Jcutler81 - Generally the most colorful peice of art does not always win. The best drawn picture will take the win.

2009-08-09 [Chimes]: The picture the populus votes for will win, sometimes it's not the best drawn. It depends on the opinion of the voters normally.

2009-08-10 [jacen81]: So then the question is not how well do you draw, but how well do you know the audience you are trying to appeal to.

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;
