ECM Nymph art



ECM Nymph Art

Submissions of non-photo artwork and media.

Contest Closed


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 "Nymph theme", will be removed.
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.

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

REMEMBER THE GOAL: We want the BEST QUALITY images to represent Elftown having the best Nymph Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!

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.

Brief description:

Nymphs are female personifications of nature. They are usually depicted as young, beautiful women but can also be disguised as part of the natural phenomenon they rule over (e.g. a dryad may look like a tree). They are usually bound to the area in which their tree/pond/spring etc. is and often are tied to its fate - a dryad will die if her tree is cut down, etc.

Nymphs come in various forms, representing trees, oceans, and ponds, etc. Dryads, Hamadryads, Naiads, Nereids and Oceanids are all types of nymph and all are acceptable in this contest (though it might be useful to note with your drawing which type you have drawn).

2010-09-02 [Ravendust]: mmm... question of my own; I know that typically nymphs are more personifications of actual nature- water, earth... but what about fire? I was thinking a volcanic nymph and have an interesting image in mind... Probably gonna draw it either way, but I wonder if it'd be fitting?

2010-09-02 [SilverFire]: Hmmm... it's not 'typical' so it probably wouldn't count.

2010-09-09 ['Hana.]: i want to do this :3
i think i'll give it a go, later.
i liked reading the wiki stuff, btw xD i never knew so much about nymphs :P <3

2010-09-09 [Chishio]: I'm working on mine!! <3

2010-09-10 ['Hana.]: i've been looking 'round the interwebs for insperation. i'm abit stuck x.x hha, i'll have one up before long though, no doubt :3 <3

2010-09-23 [pegasus1000]: same. I started drawing a pretty girl next to a tree. Basic traditional greek nymph... ya, I don't think it will make it but we'll see how it turns out.

2010-09-28 [Ravendust]: there is info out there on fire nymphs though now that I actually take the time to look through stuff. Some are typically considered 'volcanic' nymphs as they dwell in and around volcanoes. Not sure why I didn't actually look into it properly before :-/

Their proper name is Pyroead, not fire nymph, however...^^;;

2010-09-29 [SilverFire]: Eh, I didn't deny that someone somewhere has thought of the idea before, but they're still not "typical" (Wikipedia doesn't even have an article on them, and wikipedia has articles on some pretty obscure stuff, so they seem to be incredibly UN-typical. :P)

2010-10-03 [Elwyne]: Yay! My scanner finally works so I added my picture!

2010-10-21 [wicked fae mage]: Just commenting the page as a reminder to myself to scan and post my picture tonight...and I love the entries! Very lovely :3

2010-10-21 [Ravendust]: I still wish mine could have counted, she's so neat :-/

2010-10-22 [wicked fae mage]: You can always make another one that is a sea/lake/woods etc nymph

2010-10-22 [Ravendust]: I've been trying to inspire myself for it...

2010-10-22 [Elwyne]: maybe looking at pictures of those places?

2010-10-22 [Ravendust]: yeah, I was looking at pictures trying to get inspiration

2010-10-22 [Elwyne]: ah, well maybe read some nymph stories or something then? Just trying to help so you don't have to.

2010-10-22 [wicked fae mage]: Hmm...think Tsuki, Dee. Tsuki becomes the mischievous blue nymph xD

2010-10-22 [Ravendust]: xD yeah, Tsuki does indeed

2010-10-23 [wicked fae mage]: Well, I no longer have photoshop so the trimming of my pictures can only be done in paint which tends to be hard to do. I'm going to try to mess with them and hope it works out.

2010-10-23 [Elwyne]: good luck!

2011-04-14 [organicparadox]: these are all really great entries.
