Lemirian Art Contest!


Welcome to Lemirian Art Contest!
I ([Duredhel]) had been meaning to make a Realms of Lemire art contest for a while now, but I could not settle on a single theme for the contest, so I have decided, instead of a single contest, I'll make a series of contests! Cycling through this page! Every month or so, I will change the theme of the contest and we'll start anew!

To prevent just one person from winning the over and over (should there be a particularly talented contestant) if you win the contest one month, you cannot win first place the following month (can still win second or third!).


1 - Your entry must be your own art! No tracing, copying or anything of the sort. (You can use other people's characters though, as long as you draw them yourself.)
2 - Each contest will last about a month, but this may vary. The deadline will be announced 1 week prior to the actual date.
3 - All mediums accepted, however it must look like something from Lemire! If you are doing a photomanipulation, for example, of someone casting a spell and wearing regular, modern clothes, it won't be accepted, since modern clothes don't exist in Lemire.
4 - No whinning! I will listen to any complaints, questions, comments with courtesy and devote all my attention to you, as long as you do so in a polite and civilized way.
5 - Also be curteous and nice to each other during the contest, or I will hurt you... and enjoy it.
6 - Have fun!! <--- token dumb rule.

Many of you probably ask, "Why should I join these dumb contests?". As GM, and if you're one of my players, the answer is "Cuz you exist to amuse me puny mortal! MWAHAHAhahahah!!". And if you're NOT one of my players, cuz I'll give you nifty stuff if you win :D!

Entry Nº

Entries :

Entry Nº1
Artist - [Silverbullet]
Title - Mount Seannesha
Work - <img200*0:stuff/SilverLAC2ndEntry.jpg>
Description - An old rendition of what some percieved Sheannesha as. An Ageless tortoise whose shell is a fuming mountain and whose legs are never-ending waterfalls. Others thought this was Seannesha's first experiment with all five elements..

...Alright, so I may have gone overboard with my whole "Don't make Seannesha humanoid" goal.. But hey, we're all artists here. That's what we do!

Entry Nº2
Artist - [Magus Ferox]
Title - Nim'ael, the Spire King
Work - <img200*0:stuff/C%3ADocuments%20and%20SettingsJenniferDesktopNIMMY.jpg>
Description - Um um um... I'm not sure if the Spire King counts as a god of Lemire or not. >.> I'm not even sure what the Spire King even LOOKS LIKE, I couldn't find a description of him anywhere... But this is what I've always imagined him to look like! @_@

Entry Nº3
Artist - [Veltzeh]
Title - Eola, Terra, Seannesha, Hydra, Igna
Work - <img200*0:stuff/2006092101_ROL_gods.gif>
Description - Well, there's obviously some creating going on in there... I colored and shaded it, but it ended up sucking compared to this original, so yeah.

Entry Nº4
Artist - [Sturmi]
Title - Nesha
Work - <img200*0:stuff/sturmientry.jpg>
Description - I should have uploaded this a while ago... anyway, I tried to make her look sort of ravillan-like. Don't have much else to say...

Entry Nº5
Artist - [Lite]
Title Sei'Anna
Work - <img200*0:stuff/J%3AROL.jpg>
Description - Goddess Sei'Anna. In one hand, she holds a bird, representing life, and in the other, a spear, for death. The two aspects of nature, also symbolizing its uncontrolled wildness and unpredictability.

2006-09-22 [Adaman]: Veltzeh, I don't think you've ever agreed with me once on anything, heh. And Silverbullet, thanks for spelling it out a bit more in detail.

2006-09-22 [Veltzeh]: Oh good :D And Adaman, you make the kind of statements that I can neither wholly disagree or agree with. I usually half-agree with them, but I have to mention the other side too, so it looks more like disagreeing... right? X)

2006-09-22 [Silverbullet]: haha, no prob. I've gotten a few comments when i was in Arts in Cegep about why i "didn't draw what people find are nice". My usual reply was "It's not my job to draw what people think are nice. My job is to draw, and for people to find what's nice about it."... or something like that, depended on how much chocolate i had in me at the time ^_____^

2006-09-23 [Silverbullet]: Hey Dur! Is there a race that's a bit less... imaginative? XD
Or rather, more down to earth. Some that would be less succeptible to personalise a deity?

2006-09-23 [Duredhel]: XD Don't really get your question.

2006-09-23 [Silverbullet]: Well.. I have a feeling most of the entries will show us some kind of 'humanoid' representation of the gods. My question is are there some of the races who would, instead of personalising their gods, would represent them more as symbols than as people? *is probably not making more sense*

2006-09-24 [Duredhel]: Its up to you really, I wanted to give you guys some freedom this time around XD

2006-09-24 [Silverbullet]: You sure chose the right subject! Religion: not a very constrained piece of inspiration XD

2006-09-24 [Veltzeh]: Even though I mostly dislike god-like things that resemble any recognizable humanoid shape, there are a few simple reasons for drawing them that way... first, people can get it, second, they end up looking nice and third, at least I like drawing humanoids. :D
...I just had an urge to draw the gods as towers.

2006-09-24 [Mr.Scoop]: Yes.

2006-09-24 [Silverbullet]: Towers? Oo I'll be looking forward to seeing that ^^

2006-09-24 [Veltzeh]: I already did draw humanoids, though... is there a limit to how many entries one person can enter?

2006-09-24 [Duredhel]: I'd rather it be 1 ^^

2006-09-29 [Sturmi]: when's the deadline?

2006-09-29 [Veltzeh]: I got my picture scanned and smudged >_>

2006-09-29 [Sturmi]: Mine is almost done :)

2006-09-29 [Silverbullet]: I've got mine ready to be inked.. i just don't know if it really fits the subject ^^"

2006-09-30 [Adaman]: Ooo, Sturmi's in the contest. This could be a challenge.

2006-10-02 [Duredhel]: Uhm.. I hope we get a fair number of entries ^^
I'm failing miserably at promoting the contest amongst non-RoL peoples :(

2006-10-02 [Sunny Silverunicorn]: Why don't you add it to the Art Contests? or have you already done that?

2006-10-02 [Duredhel]: Done that ^^
I wanted to have it show up on the mainstreet, but they don't do it for contest pages, only individual contests :(
