Valentine Art Competition



Greetings, and welcome to Elftown's official Valentine Art Competition!



Contest Moderators: -

Please read the [#RULES] and the [#THEME] before entering!


1. No stolen art. Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist.

2. Tracings and paint-overs are not accepted. Referencing is fine, but if a large part of the image is referenced, please post the reference picture used along with your submission.

3. Old art allowed. Old pieces of art are allowed in this contest, provided they have not already been submitted to another official Elftown Contest. If your art has been submitted to an unofficial contest, then you are still free to enter it here.

4. Each member may submit two (2) entries.

5. All images must be uploaded to Elftown. 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 wiki page.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

6. Subject matter: Images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the [#theme] will be allowed.

7. Medium: All media except photography, photomanipulations and animated GIFs, will be accepted. This means you cannot use a photograph or a photomanipulation even for the background.

8. Vote-mongering: Asking people to vote for you is not allowed. You may ask people to vote in the poll in general, but not specifically for you.

9. Queries: If you wish to discuss something about how the contest is run, or the rules, then please use the official contest forum: <forum:Elftown contests>! If you wish to bring up a query about whether a certain entry fits the theme, 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. However, if you wish to query whether an entry is stolen art or breaks any other rules, you may still bring this up after the poll has been made.

2007-01-22 [Lothuriel]: Why, thank you!

2007-01-23 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: <img:stuff/sm-gif.gif>

2007-01-23 [Avrora_Black]: I'll be in this one! I awready have the idea:D

2007-01-23 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: I have two ideas.. one is silly cartoon.. the other is more "romantic" as it were. But I have a question. Does pink have to be the dominant colour in the picture or is it just a random valentines theme?

2007-01-23 [Linderel]: No, no, it doesn't have to be pink. xD The 'make it pink', as previously stated, is just my summary for taking random words and imbedding them in an image that should, on the whole, feel like Valentine's - pinkifying the words, so to say. :)

2007-01-23 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: lol alright. Just making sure. I'd hate to have to redo my entire colour scheme

2007-01-24 [*DIABOLICAL MASQUERADE*]: I would do this contest, but I can only do two of the things that need to be in the pic, all of them is kind of hard...

2007-01-24 [shotokan_gal]: You don't need them all, although if anyone wants to include them all feel free. You only need three.

2007-01-25 [Gl1tt3rn1nj4]: I'm actually considering entering just because I like the themes so much. Pink zombies with octopuses and flowers or kites? That's so cool! =D

2007-01-26 [Kachichan]: Same here! Well, the octopus did it for me. :D

2007-01-26 [Ocean Soul]: You do know that the colour pink doesn't have to be included, right? ;)

2007-01-26 [Kachichan]: But isn't that kind of implied by the title?

2007-01-26 [iippo]: Not really, it's just a funny title. Quote [Linderel]: " 'Make It Pink!' is merely my totally-lacking-in-imagination summary for it."

2007-01-26 [Kachichan]: *eyes the other entries* Well, personally I'd hate to be one to buck the trend. :P

2007-01-27 [H3_six]: Octopusses are so romantic.<img:44166_1164903263.gif>

2007-01-27 [Nicki314]: the quality issues says no pictures of the drawings... but what if you don't have a scanner and that's how you get them into your computer?

2007-01-27 [Linderel]: Well, it's pretty hard to get a decent picture of a drawing with a camera... The rule is there because of that. But if you manage to get a good photograph that looks like a scanning, I think it's okay.

(Someone correct me if I'm wrong.)

2007-01-27 [Forever Equine]: I've been able to get a few decent photos of drawings, kind of like the one I have up in my house. Just be sure that you don't take the picture dead on, if you do, the flash has a tendency to wash it out. I hope that can help a little [Nicki314].=)

2007-01-27 [shotokan_gal]: There is a wiki on the tutorials page on the subject - Photographing art, by [iippo]. You might find it helpful :)

2007-01-27 [Nicki314]: Thankyou all very much! I will experiment with all. Thanks!

2007-01-28 [The 5 Elements]: can someone please tell me if my pic in the valentine comp is of good quality to be entered??? i had to take a photo of it cos of no scanner....if someone could, thank you.
