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.

2007-02-17 [BinaryPhoenix]: Maybe you could ask someone to colab with you to colour your pic... If that would be allowed...

2007-02-17 [xido]: [iippo]: "The very bottomline of that copyright thing is: no ripping off anything not made by you. I do trust that everyone entering knows where the line of referencing and stealing is, it's just very difficult to put into words."

'Tis why I made APA Formatting.

2007-02-17 [Estantia]: no I don't think it is... i guess it will just be a challenge then, it's not like I proclaim myself to be that good an artist anyway :P

2007-02-17 [Shika Lane]: don't worry i'm a terrible artist all you can do really is try your best no one can expect anymore or any less if they did it would take away all the fun.

2007-02-17 [Estantia]: good point :) that gives me hope at least, though it makes me worry about how amazing the bios will be....

2007-02-17 [Estantia]: Just a question, would the wiki Joe Marder be a suitable bio? or should I move it to another page?

2007-02-17 [SilverFire]: It's fine on the page that it is on.

2007-02-28 [Shika Lane]: i hope someone else adds another character to the page or otherwse we don't have even numbers

2007-02-28 [Elegy - gone]: How does that matter? o.O

2007-02-28 [Shika Lane]: because if you remember we are all give another person to draw if we don't have an even number someones character either won't get drawn or someone will have to do 2 it dosnt really seem fair

2007-02-28 [Elegy - gone]: Erm? You can trade in a circle? Number 1 gets number 2's bio to draw, and number 2 gets number 3, who gets number 4, and it continues that way until the last one, who gets number 1! Genius, yeah?

2007-02-28 [Shika Lane]: its gonna have to go that way if no one else joins

2007-02-28 [Elegy - gone]: Well, I hardly think they were planning to have you trade in pairs anyway, so it's not a problem either way *shrugs*

2007-02-28 [Shika Lane]: i'm not the worlds best at logic and numbers circle didnt cross my mind as at all possible

2007-02-28 [Kachichan]: I still can't decide which character to write a profile for. XD;

2007-02-28 [Sienta]: I am planning on entering. Hopefully. Now, which character?? *looks thoughtful*

2007-03-01 [Kachichan]: How many do you have, [Sienta]? :o

2007-03-01 [iippo]: Look at it this way Dark Pixie: there's 15 people and 15 characters to draw, every person draws one. No complications :)

2007-03-01 [Estantia]: it's just going to be picked at random then...

2007-03-02 [Sienta]: Way to many [Kachichan]. My friend and I run entire rps with many many characters just between the two of us. And then there are the ones that live in my head..... ^_^;

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