Elftown Photo Reference Marathon

Do you want to donate your own stock images to Elftown so that they may be used by artists? If so, donate them to the EPRM in return for nifty badges!

What we want are photos that are useful for artists. The photos should be pretty big, as sharp as possible and contain little more than the subject(s). We want many kinds of subjects, but more important is that we have shots on everything the subject does and from all angles.

Discussion: Elftown Rules

Hello Elftowners! We've been discussing updating the Uploading Art Rules for a while now amongst ourselves, and we've decided that we need more input from everyone instead of just our small group. Take a look at Discussion: Elftown Rules and give us your input about the rules!
Also, don't forget the still ongoing Elftown Haiku Contest 2014. We love getting more entries. <img:img/mood/10305_1126060599.gif>

Time

Frozen white and ice encrusted,
Hear the pain of friends mistrusted.
Slow and cold, a daily death;
The foggy white of my warm breath.

Is it moving? Can you hear?
A tiny sparkle, a diamond tear?
A graceful fall; an ugly crime.
This is called the passage of Time.

[To the Welkin]

I'd like to introduce you to one of Elftown's fun, relaxed artists: [To the Welkin]!

<img300*0:http://i1283.photobucket.com/albums/a541/TheRuines/IMG_0123_zpsa91d709b.jpg>

Is there a story behind your username?
Perhaps not the most original inspiration behind a username, but it's actually a shortened version of one of my favorite black metal albums entitled 'Anthems To The Welkin At Dusk', by the band Emperor.

What all do you do on Elftown?
I lurk, communicate with old friends, write private thoughts in my little diary, and scout for art that speaks to me. I enjoy posting little snippets of my own writings and creations; I'm usually quite shy about my art but Elftown has helped me to come out of my shell a bit. There is something very frightening yet liberating about exposing your innermost depths to the eyes of others.

Do you prefer using a specific medium for art?
Typically I gravitate towards charcoals, pen/ink, and the biggest paper I can find. However, more recently in the last year or so I have dabbled in found object sculpture, due to having an apartment and no money to buy decor. You have to get creative when you're poor, haha. I experimented with random gadgets, car and clock parts, woodwork, even silverware. It opened me up to a whole new experience and perspective. I hope to continue this trend and not revert to one specific medium each time I feel an artistic endeavor coming on.
What do you do for a living?
I am a hair stylist. It's not exactly my dream job, but I am determined to find the loopholes of being an artist in modern society. I think it is important to enjoy what you are doing in life. I'm figuring it out as I go along. I do not desire vast amounts of money or recognition, just connectivity with like-minded souls, and endless open doors, as a result of continuously taking risks and putting myself and my art out there.

Role Playing for Dummies

<img200*0:http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v158/Lunnie/Roleplaying.jpg>


The first featured wikipage for August 2014 is Role Playing for Dummies, which was designed by the talented [Lunnie]. Written in such a way that anyone who is interested in roleplaying, from seasoned veteran to clueless newbie, can read and learn some new tips and tricks of the rather complicated art of making characters, playing in character and just generally roleplaying with others. Filled with fun humor and easy to understand writing, we suggest Role Playing for Dummies to anyone interested in bettering themselves in roleplaying.

Go to Wiki Nominations to nominate a wiki you love for featuring.
Wiki-pages will need to be exported before they can be rated, however, if you don't wish your page to be exported, you can still be a Featured Wiki.

FTL: Juggernaut

The featured story for 15th Augut 2014 is brought to you by [Tekkon KinKreet].

"As we jumped into the home system, my stomach knotted. I could see the main station, surrounded by rebel ships, like a noose, tightening around everything we stood for.

We were late. My crew mates and I let out a collective gasp at the sight. Tiny, the enormous Rockman, broke his usual silence, catching everyone off guard with his gravelly voice. "The Flag ship, we must find it."

The rockmen were huge creatures. Their outer shell, akin to a humans skin, but much thicker was made almost entirely of rock. Believing honor above all else with personal strength a close second, they made great soldiers, and were often used as boarding parties, and were the first in the fight when their ship was boarded."


We hope you enjoy reading this fun, action packed story! <img:stuff/aj/61513/1267019305.png>
