***Art Contest!***

Recommended Posts

Well since it's been a long time since the last art contest we had here I think it's time for another one!

This one is more special though, because it's about drawing pictures for a story!

 

For this contest you first will have to read our newest official story written by Enly here:

Port Anitora & The Dragon Ship

(it's a really great story..even if you don't want to participate in the contest, read the story!! ;)

 

For the contest you can either:

1. Draw a picture of any of the characters

2. Draw a scene from the story

 

 

You can use any artistic medium such as:

-pencil & paper

-paints

-computer programs

-sculptures

 

...just be creative and have fun! Hopefully in the end we'll have a bunch of illustrations for the story :D If this works out well, we'll do this once every month.

 

Prizes are to be determined and will be given out by Entropy in the end.

There will be 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.

You can make as many entries as you'd like.

 

Contest ends 1 month from now on October 18th.

 

Any questions feel free to ask!

 

Please post links to files in .jpg format. Also name them like this: YourGameName_TitleOfWork.jpg

So for example: Roja_sarmathegnome.jpg

Some info on the races of the gods:

 

Most of the gods have a set "appearance" that they like over others(for example Aluwen likes to appear as a female elf). The gods can change their appearance at will however..so they can also be whatever they want. Who knows what their true race/form actually is. They may make appearances to many different people and appear differently in each instance.

 

 

Also, with regard to character appearances:

 

Every person who reads a story generally envisions the characters a bit differently, sometimes very differently from other readers. That's all ok! The fun part of reading a story is using your imagination to visualize people & places in the story.

You can draw the characters however YOU visualize them-there is no set way that they should be drawn, except of course, to follow the descriptions of them in the story(such as Sarma has red hair) :blush:

I'm taking a shot at this, hopefully I can finesh my picture soon.

 

(P.S. good job airakose!)

Here it is. (It's really rough, but I'm busy irl, so dont have time to clean it up.) It's sarma when he is confronted by groden, then trips on a rock, and uh, yeah. http://i214.photobucket.com/albums/cc68/Fo..._SarmGroden.jpg

Reaching the outskirts of the city, he sat down on a rock and leaned back. Above him a stunning blanket of stars twinkled while the two moons hung silently in the darkness casting their ghostly light upon the city.

I focussed on the majestical 2 Moons while Sarma sits on a stone, slightly covered in Darkness.

Well, at this point I rather doubt I'll finish a nice big picture, so I just did a quick sketch of Groden after he was hit with the arrow. (Wanted to see how the angle would work)

 

Groden is down Edit: Looks kind of strange, doesn't it? Hmm....

 

Edit: Oh, here's a quick picture of Sarma on the Etch-a-Sketch. lol :)

 

Sarma

 

Great story Enly! :D
