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.

Username (or number or email):


2006-09-19 [Adaman]: I could throw in an entry, but it probably won't win first place.

2006-09-19 [Silverbullet]: I'm going to work on a sketch.. I'll have plenty of free time next week for it ^_^

2006-09-19 [Duredhel]: You'll have around a month, till mid-october, so no rush,

2006-09-19 [Adaman]: Did the two of you miss the pun there?

2006-09-19 [J. "dragonruler" Rouse]: I caught it

2006-09-19 [Silverbullet]: I caught it too.... just didn't find an appropriate spot for my "XD Adaman made a funny!"-smiley ^___________________________^

2006-09-19 [Adaman]: Hurray! Cookies on the house.

2006-09-19 [Veltzeh]: I already started drawing but then I realized I have no clue at all what Seannesha might look like, even if I assume its kids look like the respective planetarii. :D

2006-09-19 [eyes of frost]: Cool. Another contest!!

2006-09-20 [Veltzeh]: So... what DOES Seannesha look like? Or can I just make up something? (I bet you'd regret that...)

2006-09-20 [Adaman]: Remember Veltz, you're trying to win a contest, not spite Dur. The idea is to draw something everyone will vote for.

2006-09-20 [Veltzeh]: I haven't gone that low yet. I don't draw for anyone else except myself, in the end. Drawing is my hobby, not my profession. :D

2006-09-20 [Adaman]: When you live to sell art, you make small adjustments out of necessity. Still, logically speaking, the point of entering an art contest is to draw something people will vote for.

2006-09-20 [Veltzeh]: I dislike contests (I usually enter them to challenge myself to draw something new or something). I could not enter them, too, if you'd like...

2006-09-20 [Adaman]: That's your decision, entirely. Whether or not anyone is pleased by your entree or non-entree, it makes no difference. Besides, its always better to do something than not to do something.

2006-09-20 [Mr.Scoop]: Righto yeh are muh main man!

2006-09-20 [Silverbullet]: Living to sell your art isn't the same as living to make art. Idially, both would be the same, but as Adaman said, you sometimes have to make small adjustments so that people will like your art enough to buy it.
Here we're dealing with a contest, which is almost the same. However, we aren't living off the profit made from winning, so we can try to do our best without really caring whether people will vote for us or not. The variety of people voting will ensure that the best wins. (As long as the majority of voters refrain from popularity votes and pitty votes, that is.)
Personally, I'm like Veltz here. I enter to draw. If I win anything is beside the point (though a welcome perk XD).

2006-09-20 [Veltzeh]: Yep. Well, it's not ALWAYS better to do something than not... I for example like to have a little of totally "wasted" time doing absolutely nothing, because my brain tends to make up nice things during that time. Maybe that's not "not doing something" though, but well. X)

2006-09-22 [Veltzeh]: Dur? Care to shed any light on Seannesha?

2006-09-22 [Duredhel]: no :D, its a god, its got endless representations.

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.
