The image must be coloured by you, and collaborations will not be allowed. This means that no matter how good you think another person is at colouring, you cannot ask that person to colour it for you and submit the work as your own. That will make us angry, very angry indeed! So steer clear of inciting our wrath.

Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e.
- no sloppy colouring outside the lines
- no bad scans/photos if you choose to print the image out and colour it with traditional means
- drawings must be coloured. That means you may not submit an entry shaded in greyscale or with a pencil.


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.

There is a strict subject matter. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed, random or too heavily modified images will be removed. We wish for the guard uniforms to remain the main focus of the image, so no adding a large and comprehensive background and making the guards an insignificant detail.

Also, since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, images that depict graphic violence or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. That means no giving the guards gory head wounds.

All applicable mediums will be accepted.

This contest has no actual new theme; instead, your objective is to colour the winner of the Design the Guard Uniform contest. Do not add any major elements into the image. The only exception to this will be a background.


Since the lineart for this competition has already been made, there is an issue of copyright.
We discovered that the one who claimed to have created it actually simply stole it from a Photoshop anime drawing tutorial.
This means we do not have permission to use this image and therefore it's not allowed to use your entries outside of Elftown's wiki-pages anymore. We ask you to stop displaying the entries on your houses.


The deadline of this competition is April 1, 2007.

We will be picking two (2) images as the winners.

Ten images will be picked out by the Council and the Assembly among all those presented and a Mainstreet poll will tell the winner.
Participants will receive an art donor badge, and winners will receive a coloured version of the same (or a green/coloured Masters of Building badge if they are committed art donors).

2007-04-13 [Noxme]: sixth page i believe? hmm


2007-04-14 [NOOOPE]: Dude! And the boy guard's face is on page 7!!

2007-04-14 [Elegy - gone]: Damn. That doesn't look good. And they talk about both the head and the upper body as parts of a cd with plenty of parts that can be clipped together to form different characters, and they also say you have all the choices you need to make two warriors =/

2007-04-14 [Elegy - gone]: I found a picture from the same book, of the skirt and the boots used:

2007-04-14 [Linderel]: Indeed, this looks pretty bad. <_< If it comes to the worst, this whole competition may have to be called off. :/

2007-04-14 [Elegy - gone]: The entire male warrior in one character! :O

2007-04-14 [Elegy - gone]: And here we have the entire female one:

2007-04-14 [Linderel]: Alright, this is pretty serious. :S

2007-04-14 [Sunrose]: Wow, thanks so much [Elegy - gone]! [Noxme] was going to try and find the exact images for me (as I suspected they'd already exist, rather than being put together), but now you've found them *glomps*
The matter has already been discussed by the Guards, the competition will continue and we will select a winner. After all the entrants worked hard an it's not their fault. We have also already discussed a solution concerning the image on Guards, but we will get into that later on :)

2007-04-14 [Elegy - gone]: Hehe, I'm just lying in my bed with nothing to do, googling an image or two isn't a very big feat =P

2007-04-14 [Linderel]: I wish I could use my computer from my bed. <_<

2007-04-14 [Elegy - gone]: Well, at least you're allowed out of your bed, so it doesn't matter either way =P

2007-04-14 [Linderel]: True enough. :3

2007-04-14 [NOOOPE]: Just out of curiousity, who got second place in that contest?

2007-04-14 [Sunrose]: [Elegy - gone], we already approached her but she's not available to make new line-art :(

2007-04-15 [Sunrose]: Please see the changes to rule 7.. :)

2007-04-17 [Saffron]: Wow, somehow I already thought this would happen ^^' Is someone keeping track of the new mainstreet poll? You know, the poll appearing anonymous but not actually being anonymous? XD

2007-04-17 [Sunrose]: What do you mean not actually being anonymous?

2007-05-16 [Noxme]: oooooooooo my
