In co-operation with the Official Role-Playing Tournament


The Patrons' Challenge


Contest Closed

Deadline for character drawing submission: April 14th 2007


One does not need to look hard or far in Elftown to realise several facts: that many Elftowners love to write - this includes RPing. That many love art, and that many like the two combined. Based on these facts, we present the Patrons' Challenge.

There have been many contests where people have asked others to draw their characters, and other contests where people have been asked to draw their own character. By entering this contest you shall draw the character of another Elftowner, and in turn, have your own character drawn by a fellow Elftowner.

The premise is thus: each entrant signs up, and submits one Role-Play character bio of their own creation; after the deadline for entrants has passed, each entrant will be assigned the character bio of one of their fellow entrants. Their task will be to produce a picture of their allotted character based on the information provided in the biography.

At the end of the tournament, there will be two winners - a writer - the entrant deemed to have written the best character bio - and one artist - the entrant deemed to have produced the best portrait of a character.


* Entrants * PC Rules * Patrons' Challenge Art Submissions


Note: Reading the rules would be a wise idea.

The Patrons' Challenge is a simple enough concept: You enter by submitting an RP character of your creation, and participate by drawing the character of another entrant. There shall be two winners - one artist, and one writer.

2007-03-13 [Sienta]: Don't worry [Shika Lane]!! I'm doing your entry now. ^_^

2007-03-13 [EmeraldGrizzly]: I love your character Sienta! I 'aven't been able to show any fairy or pixie art for fear of humiliation. Not that they are drawn bad, just that I took so much time I thought people would think i'm obsessed, which i'm not... oh a penny!

2007-03-13 [Estantia]: I've drawn it in pencil, but need to scan and colour ^_^

2007-03-13 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Are colouring pencils accepted? I know it's a bit old style, but it's all I got.

2007-03-13 [iippo]: Direct quote from the PC rules: All mediums, except photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted.

2007-03-13 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Thank you for pointing that out :)

2007-03-13 [SilverFire]: Deadline now set!

2007-03-13 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: Will there be a page seperate from the original enterants one for the drawing submissions?

2007-03-13 [SilverFire]: Good question: Patrons' Challenge Art Submissions

2007-03-14 [FlowerGirl21]: I soooo suck at drawing

2007-03-14 [Lexi. Short and Sweet!]: don't worry about it.. i'm not all that great but the more drawing you do the better you get.

2007-03-15 [FlowerGirl21]: True, I practise inspiration often lacks me, voices more in words :p

2007-03-16 [Estantia]: hm, I have a problem here, i have the lineart in flash, but if I try to get it over to photoshop to colour the lines go blurry and the bg is back... anyone know how to stop that?

2007-03-17 [iippo]: How do you try to get it over to Photoshop? With export?

2007-03-17 [Estantia]: yeah, print screen works a little better but still gives me the fuzzy bits around lines.

2007-03-17 [iippo]: Might be worth it to try plain old copy and paste, because Flash and Photoshop do like each other...

2007-03-17 [Estantia]: mine don't... that was the first thing I tried... also I forgot the colour sensor on my photoshop is off, ffffff looks cream

2007-03-17 [Estantia]: there, now to get it thumbnailed...

2007-03-19 [EmeraldGrizzly]: I checked everyhting out and couldn't find the answer to this question - Would I be correct in saying that if I don't get best writing or drawing, i'd simply get a colour update to the my Donor of Writing and Donor of Art badges? If not, it doesn't amtter, participating in this competition is enough, it really is an awesome contest. Secondly, this is, to be honest one of the most creative and imaginative contests i've got to be in yet. I hope more of this kind come up in the following year. Good luck all.

2007-03-19 [iippo]: I think you'll get the not-yet-seen mystery roleplayer badge.

2007-03-19 [Azuri]: whoo! Everyone love mystery prizes :D
