By [Kuruni]!




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 "Unicorn 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.

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.

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

Brief description:
- A unicorn is not unlike a war-horse; it has heavy cloven hooves, and has a single central horn on its forehead.
- Physical Description: Though the modern popular image of the unicorn is sometimes that of a horse differing only in the horn on its forehead, the traditional unicorn also has a billy-goat beard, a lion's tail, and cloven hooves that distinguish it from a horse.

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 Unicorn-page on the entire Internet.

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 "Unicorn" is needed.

2009-03-19 [Kahri]: Thanks!

2009-03-25 [FamousPanda]: Thank you [Artsieladie] =D

2009-04-19 [Crystal~Feronia]: Your all so talented! I haven't been on here in years I got a spam from someone on here in my email, I'm glad I came back on :) I'm terrible at backgrouns but I did my best to think one up lol

2009-04-19 [Amyclaw]: I read somewhere unicorns used to be depicted as black too... and that they weren't just the simbol of good, purity and all, but also of great disasters, sodomy and some others... that's why I did this one with stripes... Do tell me if I should take back my submission XD...

Btw, Nice work all! They're luvly! <img:44166_1164903263.gif>

2009-04-21 [Crystal~Feronia]: I think that's the wonderful thing about mythology, what is known about them is so vague and differs from place to place :) The 80's movie Legend really touched me so I guess mine is a symbol of my childhood ideas for these lovely creatures :)

2009-04-23 [Zab]: I changed my entry. :) I believe that's ok?
I found a can of skills allsuddenly and wanted to compete with my best image :)

2009-04-26 [*Blade*]: Ive entered this..although i might not keep it. Its acrylics on canvas and is just a start for my paint on canvas career lol Need to invest in a digital camera as scan takes off abit of the quality and depth =)

2009-04-27 [Crystal~Feronia]: I love that you can see the motion Zab :) Your entry is great too Blade, I envy people who can use acrylics, I have to do all colour work on the computer I'm terrible at it

2009-05-05 [tinky31909]: sorry did it wrong. ignore this.

2009-05-05 [Chimes]: Are you meaning this to be an entry?

2009-05-07 [tinky31909]: haha yeah, i figured it out though thanks.

2009-05-23 [Zab]: I expected so much more entries..

2009-05-24 [Crystal~Feronia]: Maybe some last minute entries? Still a week left

2009-06-15 [Sliverbane]: Everyone went with an equine Unicorn. Interesting...

2009-06-15 [Zab]: It's generally seen as equine tho. I tried to make the hinquarters more deer-like in mine but found it difficult to get harmony and balance in the picture if I had made it more gracile..

2009-06-16 [arthemis_]: Ehm... [Sliverbane]? If you look in the rules above in the description then it says horse :) An unicorn made of another animal would be considered a-typical and would probably not make it in this contest :) A-typical unicorns are great though, maybe we should have a contest with them!

2009-08-21 [Zab]: Congrats to the winner :)

2009-08-28 [Kuruni]: yay!! wohoooo!  thank you! ^^

2009-09-03 [Crystal~Feronia]: Congratulations, brilliant art ^-^

2010-02-26 [Hedda]: Stop spamming the old wiki-pages! There is no reason to do that so we will not. I have Elftown bugs to sort out and getting annoyed at pointless requests is not something I want to spend my time on.

2010-02-27 [Hedda]: I will make an "Unown wiki-page" button in the future and then you can get rid of the wiki-page.
