Meridian Masterpiece Mayhem ~ Win a serpent familiar! Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Greetings Denizens of Meridian!

I am in need of a wolf pack! A real life pet would be great =p, but i think i will have to settle for some hand drawn art. I am wanting to get a tattoo and need some inspiration - so please help me :) . I will be judging the winners for obvious reasons xD


Rules:
1: The size is to be about A5 (which is half the size of A4 - i dont really know how this works out on digital media)
2: Only grey-scale or black/white
3: The content is to be the head and neck of a howling wolf, with other wolves (at least 2) bordering the neck of the main wolf. The style and other additions are up to you.
4: You can enter multiple entries but only 1 prize can be awarded per person. I realise peoplr can make alts and what not but I just thought it would be fair to spread the prizes around :). Please post them all in one post with your ingame pirate name in the entries thread

Important Dates

Deadline: 11:59pm +10gmt, 29th of March
I'll make the due date my birthday :D. Since im in the australian time zone which is ahead of most, i shall have the deadline by 11:59pm.

Winners Revealed: 7th of April!

Prizes:
I'm hoping to get a fair few entries as I think the prizes are quite fair :). The prizes are subject to change (more or less) depending on the amount of entries
1st: Snake familiar (named), 10 doubloons & a Hommunculus jar
2nd: A new set of men's clothes and a set of womens clothes & a wardrobe to throw them in.
3rd: A regular sloop
Honorable Mentions x3: A new female atlantean helm.


DISCLAIMER!!!:
If there are not enough entries and/or the quality of the first place is not deserving , i reserve the right to change the prizes after the deadline. I really hate it that i have to put this in, but seeing as there has been little interest in this thread so far - I only think its fair :3. Hopefully it wont come down to that!

Now let your brushes fly! :D

Aloha!
I think this is a great event and the prizes definitely worthy, I would recommend the competition take at least a month (no more than that and any less may inhibit the quality of entries) Also, I would probably wait till mid February, as there are a lot of ocean wide art competitions that may otherwise occupy the arrtists this month :)

Also i have a question with what you mean with
 
with other wolves bordering the neck of the main wolf
Do you mean that they are in the background? (full body) or just sorta behind him?

well I'd be interested, but as I mentioned earlier, I'm a bit swamped atm with all the art competitions out with the doll event. As may be most other artists. if you decide not to run the event you can get a hold of me if you'd rather make a private commission. Either way I'll be keeping my eye on this event!

As Pixelpixie mentioned already, there are plenty of other art events going on at the moment. Wait one more week and ppl will be having time for your wolf pack.
On the other hand I think you should put out a deadline as most artists only work well if they have a deadline.

Calm down brother, I think I've got something for you, this drawing is a little old and wolves are not really what I draw best so I don't think I can make him howl, but growl (shitty joke)
But just to maybe give you hope, if you want like a lion or a bear I can do that XD Btwbs, how can you post a pic here?

wow, that is some really nice artwork. but i am going to be sticking to the rules - so it will have to be a howling wolf in the entry. I really think you have the talent to submit a valid entry. Just give it a go :) If you do change ur mind, just remember to post your entry in this link below with your pirate name. ps i did not understand the growling joke ...lol

Somebody asked in the entries thread:

 
I am so interested in this post, I'd love to draw something up for you! But one question, what exactly is A5/A4 sizing...?


So A4 size is just your normal sized sheet of paper that most people use in their printers.

And A5 is half the size of that. Note that the size is just a rough guideline. The 2 entries so far are a great representation of the size i would like. :)

Thank you<3! I guess being an art student pays off :D. Unfortunately, I don't have much time to create a masterpiece, for I have a portfolio due soon... :(
