ECM Elf Art



ECM Elves' Art

Submissions of non-photo artwork and media.

Contest Began: 2008-8-26
Contest Ended: 2008-12-01

This contest is now closed!

Thank you to all that contributed!




By Poll: ECM Elf Art Voting
<news:[ECM@wiki] Winners for [Elves@wiki] and [Fae@wiki]!>

By [deeterhi]!
Also *Crew Favourite*</center>



For the general rules see Elftown Creature Marathon#RULES!

Copied art is NOT permissible in Elftown's Official Contests. Please see: Copying vs Fanart & Referencing.

Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But, if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries.

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 wikipage.
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

Any entry that does not follow the "Elf theme", will be removed.

All mediums, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animations will be accepted.

- The BEST QUALITY images
- The MOST TYPICAL "Elf" images
- LARGE IMAGES represent Elftown having the best Elf Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!
This may be helpful: Elf.

Brief description:
Elves, mythological and fantasy creatures, originally imagined as small in nature, but now usually taken to be the same size as man, often pictured as youthful-seeming men and women of great beauty, lived in forests, underground places, in caves, springs and wells, believed to be immortal and beings of magical powers, often do not possess facial or body hair and are visualised with long and pointed, leaf shaped ears.

If you have art of 'atypical' elf, you're welcome to submit them here, but we'll mark them as outside of contest.


Aside from the regular rewards, as mentioned on Elftown Creature Marathon, the winner will receive credit for contributing to what we hope will be the best Elf-page on the entire Internet.

Three important notations:

---> #1: When the finalists are posted in the Main Street Poll or on a public poll page, the participants are not allowed to beg for votes for their own entry. Do not ask people to vote for your entry via private messages, guestbook messages, moods, wikis, or by any other means. Your entry will be disqualified if you are caught doing so. It is perfectly fine to advertise THE POLL, however!
---> #2: If you feel any of the entries break the rules, 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.
---> #3: For discussions about the Elftown competitions: Here it's discussed if an entry is in accordance with the rules and similarly more complicated issues that can't be solved with a simple wiki-comment. Go to: <forum:Elftown contests>

/Thank you - the ECM Mods and the Elftown Council.


How to post your entry:
Add your username and entry after the last one that has been already posted. Number your entries, thumbnail them to 300 (Please upload big images!), and separate them with the <hr> tag:

Title your entries, please!

A title more than just "Elf" is needed.
Thank you!

1. [Grandamelf] The Elf
Pale be the Elf that lives in shade,
but strong be the Elf that hunts in the glade!

2. [Iske] Elfje met verdriet

3. [Linderel]

4. [Jitter]
Will probably change again

5. [nehirwen]

6. [deeterhi]

7. [Linn Scarlett]
Linnerial and the mage Fearn
A lovely image, but this image is a drow elf. The drow elf will be having its own page. There's still time to replace it with another. The current image will thus be viewed as 'outside this contest', but welcomed in the drow session. There is no need for its removal, unless it's replaced by the creator with another.

8. [arthemis_] - Diomedes
Used reference picture for pose and shadowing.

9. [Jeccabee]
I played around with the background a lot...and this is what I like the best. So she's a Space Elf. ^_^

11. [Morphea]
