Greetings, and welcome to Elftown's official 'Fantasy Portrait Contest'!
Please read the [#THEME] before entering!


This contest is closed!


The Rules

1. NO STEALING ART! Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.

Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no drawings on lined notebook paper
- no pictures or bad scannings of your drawings
- drawings must be new, made for this contest. That means you may not submit a drawing you have made before this contest or one that was submitted to another contest already.
- drawings must be well shaded and/or coloured. Sketches will not be accepted.

Any entry that does not follow the above will be removed.

Last but not least, it can happen an artwork has the same title as another one; this is not against the rules as long as the artists' names are clear.


4. ALL IMAGES MUST BE UPLOADED TO ELFTOWN! Ask [Sunrose] or [Charybdis] for wiki-privs if you don't have them already; members who follow the uploading art rules, and thus are not troublemakers, will be granted these privs. See advanced help for more information about privs.

5. SUBJECT MATTER: Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed.

All mediums, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted.


Theme and deadline

What will we be expecting?
The theme is: Create an artistic representation of yourself as a fantasy creature. If Elftown was real, who would you be? The street child picking pockets, the mighty warrior that protects the citizens from harm? All fantasy races are allowed. You decide!
Images not following the theme will be removed

DEADLINE: 25th of November 

Ten images will be picked out by the Council and Assembly among all those presented. A Mainstreet poll will determine the two winners.
Participants will receive a squirrel badge, and winners will receive a coloured version of the same (or a green/coloured Masters of Building if they are commited art donors).

2006-10-18 [Sunrose]: looool x)

2006-10-20 [H3_six]: This is great. Can the fantasy race be one you made up? It says 'all fantasy races' but doesn't specify what makes a fantasy race, erm, fantasy.

2006-10-20 [Sunrose]: We'll have to wait for [Lothuriel] to answer that *^_^*

2006-10-20 [H3_six]: Yep. I just want to be sure BEFORE I start. Heh, not makin that mistake again.

2006-10-20 [Lothuriel]: I'll say mainstream Fantasy races. If we start allowing others, we will run into problems.

2006-10-20 [Calico Tiger]: Does anthro people fall into that, Loth? Ie, cat people, wolf people, dragon, etc... ?

2006-10-20 [Lothuriel]: perhaps we should make specific allowances then? Hm, anthros, elves, dwarves, orcs, halflings, gnomes, fairies, aw crap there are just too many.

But, yes I would say that anthros are very mainstream.

2006-10-20 [H3_six]: *o* oh dear this could get quite complicated. Thanks [Lothuriel], I'll stick to regular fantasy, elves and such. There are plenty of races to choose from anyway. ( :

2006-10-20 [Atayemi]: Are photomanips allowed? :)

2006-10-20 [Sunrose]: See rule 5 ;)

2006-10-20 [Atayemi]: I missed it. :P Thanks, Sunrose. :D

2006-10-22 [Sienta]: Ok, I feel very nieve and new, but I've never entered a contest before and weeeeeeeeeeelll... could someone please tell me how? *shy smile*

2006-10-23 [EmeraldGrizzly]: What of photo manipulations of yourself? Are they allowed?

2006-10-23 [Calico Tiger]: "All mediums, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted."

2006-10-23 [Calico Tiger]: Sienta, just draw an image following the guidelines, upload it to your house, then edit Fantasy Portrait Entries and add it there :D Unless your image is bigger than what Elftown allows in size to be uploaded to your house (wider than 500 pixels, for example). Then message [Sunrose] or [Charybdis] for a high enough priv level to upload images to wiki pages directly :)

2006-10-24 [Sienta]: Thank you very much Calico Tiger!! I am very relieved, although I may not have enough time left........ oh well, I shall try my best! :)

2006-10-25 [Calico Tiger]: The deadline is a month away, so I'm sure you'll have plenty of time :D Start drawing XD

2006-10-31 [Kuehne]: so "fantasy race".. does that mean it has to be non-human? What about a human from a fantasy type realm/time period?

2006-11-01 [Lothuriel]: As long as you can make her look obvious I don't see a problem with it. In other words, of course if you show a woman in a business suit and call her Ursula from the future, it won't work. But, with your art and creative mind I don't think we will have a problem.

2006-11-02 [earthkynd]: Is it too late to enter yet? =3

2006-11-02 [Ocean Soul]: DEADLINE: 25th of November :)
