ECM Unari Art

Submissions of non-photo artwork and media.

<news:Winners of the [ECM Unicorn@wiki]!>

By [Asrun]!




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 "Unari 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.

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 Unari Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!

Brief description:
- Unari are a curious mix of elf and unicorn whose origins are attributed to divine intervention.
- Physical Description: Unari are humanoid and much taller and more robust then their elven cousins, typically standing 5 to 6 ½ feet tall and weighing 135 to 250 pounds.
- To read more about a unar, go to Unari.

If you have art of an 'atypical' unar, you're welcome to submit it here, but we'll mark it as outside of contest.


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 Unari-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 "Unar" is needed.
Thank you!

2009-02-14 [Dark Side of the Moon]: okay, I'm going to sound like a real idiot here...but what's a "unar" or "unari"?

2009-02-14 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Nevermind. I just found the answer. <img:stuff/sutN.gif>

2009-02-15 [Artsieladie]: I guess I don't need to place this link here: Unari, then, do I? lol ;)

2009-03-01 [Erubeus]: Seems like a promising contest. =)

2009-03-04 [Asrun]: WOAH.. Weird.. I'm literally working on an unari piece right now... No idea that they actually had descriptions.. i just called them unicorn people.. ._.;

2009-03-04 [Artsieladie]: Great! I can't wait to see your piece! :D

2009-03-05 [Artsieladie]: Ooh, very nice! :D ...And yay, the first! :D

2009-03-05 [Erubeus]: It looks lovely. =o

2009-03-05 [Asrun]: Thank you. :o I may do a digital version as well

2009-03-05 [Alexi Ice]: [Asrun] - ! As usual your art is beautiful!!!!!!!!!!

2009-03-06 [Artsieladie]: Aye, I second that! :)

2009-03-06 [Asrun]: Thanks guys, i need to get better at watercolours and stuff. >.<

2009-03-06 [Dark Side of the Moon]: oooohh... That is BEAUTIFUL, [Asrun]. *stares*

2009-03-26 [jacen81]: I am hoping to post a piece in the coming weeks, I have spring break coming up from my art classes, I hope to take a more warrior-like approach to a Unar, something between an elf and a centuarish-like creature. I think of a face like Orius from the 1st Narnia movie, but with a small horn and slightly more furry.

2009-04-10 [Flisky]: Mine is simply taking too long. Too many details. Bleh.

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: Don't worry about it flisk, I belive the crew would have no problem extending the deadline for you if you wish to complete your peice ^^

2009-04-10 [Chimes]: Well, we don't need to think about extending it just yet. :] There's still two months but Akane is right we would probably be fine with giving you more time if you haven't been able to complete it by the deadline.

2009-04-10 [Alexi Ice]: That's true! I'm off to find more participants!

2009-04-11 [Flisky]: I'm only doing the upper body, and I haven't even finished her head yet...Her hair is giving me such trouble. :P

2009-04-11 [Alexi Ice]: Lol. Hair can be complicated! (Even real hair) So I must humbly wish you the best of luck! (We need more entrants)

2009-04-12 [SilverFire]: *hates painting hair with a passion*

2009-04-12 [Flisky]: *grins* least I'm not the only one.

2009-04-17 [Thistlewood]: I forgot, do they have to have a background?

2009-04-17 [Alexi Ice]: Usually on official contests it states that you do, but [Asrun]'s picture does not have a background, so I would go with 'no' though I belive Chimes has the final word on this one.

2009-04-17 [SilverFire]: Asrun's has enough of a background to qualify. (we're reaaaaaally lenient with what we call 'background' :P) That rule is basically there to stop people submitting bad quality or un-finished work. So... it's uh, more of a guideline really, I guess.

2009-04-17 [Chimes]: What Silvie said. :P

2009-04-17 [Alexi Ice]: So AKA coloring the 'background' would fly, eh?

2009-04-25 [Thistlewood]: If it is not what you are looking for let me know and I'll remove it.

2009-04-26 [Chel.]: Totally want to do this...

2009-04-26 [Alexi Ice]: Oh! Pretty! I especially like her feet <3

2009-04-26 [Chel.]: or is it...hooves..?

2009-04-26 [Alexi Ice]: Proabably! LOL. I never even thought about that

2009-04-27 [Asrun]: Nice piece Thistle. :3 I love her hooves and tail!

2009-04-27 [Erubeus]: Aha. Nice tail.
Reminds me of my hellhound's tail.

2009-04-27 [Thistlewood]: Thank you!

2009-05-12 [Chimes]: Artsie.. why did you change the images? I looked on view diff and the URLs are different. Mind explaining for me? o.o

2009-05-12 [Artsieladie]: Because [Hedda] wants the better file names on contest images.

2009-05-12 [Chimes]: Well... you should ask the entrants before you tamper with their entries. Or at least tell someone that you are going to do it. Otherwise it could be construed as cheating.

2009-05-19 [Chel.]: So...I'm wondering if more people will join...

2009-05-25 [Artsieladie]: [Chimes]: Making better file names has absolutely no correlation with cheating. [Hedda] can explain this better than I.

Very nice entries everyone! :D

2009-05-25 [Chimes]: Yes, but you could have edited the images before uploading so it could cause it to be put into question - No, I am not accusing you but other people could think that. This isn't your job, so if you want to do something like that ask/tell someone you are. And, the people who made the entries should be approached BEFORE you re-upload them rather than just doing it.

2009-05-25 [nehirwen]: It's not reuploading Chimsey, you can change file names by adding something between brackets, so if you have a file named nehirwen.jpg you can change the filename like this: nehirwen.jpg(nehirwensdrawing) and the file will show up as nehirwensdrawing.jpg, nothing changed about the file itself but it's name. :]
(although it's not Artsies job to change it indeed) ;)

2009-05-25 [Chimes]: But the URLs have changed too? Whenever I do the brackets thing... it doesn't change the URLs. Surely if the image location itself has changed they have to have been re-uploaded?

2009-05-25 [nehirwen]: No, they make the URL change as well. (but only after you made the edit, the original URL still works too though)

2009-05-25 [Chimes]: Wow... that's confusing. O.o So essentially... those images are now on Elftown twice. XD Wow.

2009-05-25 [nehirwen]: I don't know about images being twice on Elftown, I think there's just two ways to view the same image. But if you're confused, you can ask Hedda about the specifics. :)

2009-05-25 [Chimes]: He'll confused me more, I can tell.

2009-05-25 [nehirwen]: <img:img/mood/61513_1224163020.gif>

2009-05-25 [Asrun]: That's beautiful Chel! :)

2009-05-26 [Chel.]: Thank you! SO MUCH SPARKLE! o_o

2009-05-29 [Erubeus]: Mine won't be colored. D=
I suck at coloring.

2009-05-29 [Chimes]: Will it be shaded? :)

2009-05-29 [Erubeus]: To the best of my ability.

And guess what?
It's a male. =o
I dare to differ.

2009-05-30 [jacen81]: Erubeus, you sound like me. I am doing a group shot, all guys, no females... let's dare to differ

2009-05-30 [Chel.]: My guys always look like chics XD

2009-05-30 [Erubeus]: Well, my boy, Umi, is feminine, but is still a guy. xD
So, needless to say, he looks like a chic.
He's got curves. ><
And he likes playing dress up, and sex.
Probably didn't need to add that last bit. xDD

2009-05-30 [Chel.]: Anything with sex in it makes it automatically 200% better in my book ;)

2009-05-30 [Erubeus]: =D
He's a twin, and his brother likes sex, too. Though is not as vehement about getting laid.
So, they're 400% better than everyone else! ;flail;

2009-05-30 [Chel.]: cute!

2009-05-30 [Erubeus]: =D
Thank you~

2009-05-31 [jacen81]: How stringent is the deadline? I am working to finish and should be done by tomorrow, but am not sure. Please let me know. Thanks!

2009-05-31 [Chimes]: Um, it'll probably end at midnight Elftown time, on June 1st.

2009-05-31 [Erubeus]: I can't wait to see your picture, [jacen81]. d:

2009-05-31 [Chel.]: Aw crap.... we're all screwed aren't we?

2009-05-31 [SilverFire]: We can always make an exception if someone gets their piece to one of the mods a few hours after the deadline. ;)

2009-06-01 [jacen81]: So, forgive my noobness, how do I post the picture? I am putting my finishing touches and should have it done tomorrow.

2009-06-01 [Chimes]: Click the edit button, and follow what the others have done... (I would explain more... but I'm in college. :P)

2009-06-01 [jacen81]: lol, simple enough

2009-06-02 [jacen81]: So its past 1:00am Est. Time. It's slightly late, but hey, I got it up. I know its not colored, but I am ready for bed. Concept work on this thing about drove me nuts.

I hope I have added a fair amount of masculinity to the contest. Good night everyone!

2009-06-02 [Erubeus]: I love it.
I wish to steal it and frame it.

2009-06-02 [Chel.]: Wow... all of these are REALLY different.

2009-06-05 [Chel.]: This is going to be one short poll

2009-06-06 [jacen81]: why is that?

2009-06-06 [jacen81]: I am excited, I have been on and off of elftown for years (since 2003) and this is the first art contest I have ever been a part of.

2009-06-06 [Erubeus]: Dear-oh-dear.
You could have won quite a bit of art contests if you had been active around et.

2009-06-06 [jacen81]: Understandable, winning contests has not been my focus.

2009-06-07 [Chel.]: Only 6 entries XD

2009-06-07 [jacen81]: So when will the voting on this one begin? I would say it is only six entries because it is an atypical subject matter. Seriously, search the net, you will find little to anything about an elf/unicorn hybrid. That is why I chose to tackle this one and not the unicorn one.

I have very differing views on unicorns and would likely not even get voted on. I believe them to be more deer-like in their frame and less equine.

2009-06-07 [Chel.]: I agree! They are more like deer then a mere horse with a horn. :P

2009-06-07 [jacen81]: Glad to see someone agrees, if I had time I would have added one as an entry.

2009-06-07 [Chel.]: I didnt want to be clishe... so I tried this one! I'm a little shocked there arent more entries

2009-06-19 [Asrun]: It's a shame there weren't more entries on this. I prefer atypical subject matter, personally.

2009-06-19 [jacen81]: As do I. I did not even bother with the unicorns as that tends to be something of a conflict with me. I knew, I would lose based on my above premise.

2009-06-19 [jacen81]: Anyone know when the voting begins. Asrun, I bow before your artistic awesomeness! Great job! Both you and Chel-chan!

2009-06-19 [Chimes]: Crew voting is going on as we speak. :) The public vote will be on the Mainstreet poll once the Unicorn poll is over.

2009-07-04 [Chel.]: _>
