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.

2007-03-02 [Estantia]: same over her! *waves* thing is I have all my friends in there too...

2007-03-02 [EmeraldGrizzly]: Exscuse me, but, is there a deadline set for drawing the characters after March 10th yet?

2007-03-02 [SilverFire]: No.

2007-03-06 [NamelessMerc]: *Haunts*

<.<; >.>; Took me a while, but I got here.

2007-03-06 [SilverFire]: Bout time. :3

2007-03-06 [NamelessMerc]: Won't be entering though, me drawing skillz are n00b-level.

Like a 1st level paladin fighting a 13th level Wereboar for example.

2007-03-06 [SilverFire]: But you could win the writing part. O.o

2007-03-06 [Estantia]: they'd need to draw something though...

2007-03-06 [Azuri]: Hehe well you may think that but who knows, I think you should still enter ^_^

2007-03-06 [NamelessMerc]: There is wisdom in that... Meh, I have nothing to lose, really.
I'll work on one now.

2007-03-06 [Azuri]: Hehe yay!

2007-03-06 [SilverFire]: Yes, but they don't need to be a master artist to win the writing part - so you need to compete in both parts, but it should encourage people who aren't so good at drawing to enter, since they could still win the writing, and vice versa. :D

2007-03-10 [Sienta]: Ack!! Terrible entry, but i was in a hurry. I forgot the deadline was so soon. <img:stuff/sh-gif.gif> Heh heh... oops.

2007-03-11 [Estantia]: *laughs* I can't believe it, I'm drawing a character I'm rping with in another place :D

2007-03-11 [SilverFire]: :P Oh the wonderful coincidences of random number generation (i.e. me waking [Draugluin] every 2 minutes by yelling for him to pick a number between 1 & 22)

2007-03-11 [Estantia]: Oh yes, the coincidences are brilliant :P

Nice way to generate random numbers...

2007-03-11 [SilverFire]: I did actually try rolling a die, and random number generators, but they, well, weren't being very random - giving me the same three numbers repeatedly, so I resorted to more primitive methods. :P

2007-03-11 [Estantia]: I'm so glad I asked her to explain what kenders were now ^_^

2007-03-12 [Shika Lane]: am i paranoid or is no one drawing my character? i can see the list but i can't see anyone drawing entrant X. i'm pretty sure there are 2 people drawing entrant XX and no one drawing entrant X

2007-03-12 [Azuri]: No it would seem your correct, there are in fact 2 people doing XX but no X

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