Welcome to the Elftown Creature Feature contest. Please read the rules before entering. 


A battle between all you fantasy and sci-fi lovers to create creatures in your own home environment.
Ogres at your kitchentable, aliens in your bed, fairies on your couch or robots under your desk: use your imagination!

1: As usual, all work must be your own. No matter how much you love someone's drawing, you may not enter it for them. Anyone entering copied or stolen work will have their entry deleted.

2: Drawings, paintings, digital art, and photomanips will all be allowed. Show us what you can do on this one. 

3: No written entries. Sorry writers. We only want Images in this one.

4: 2 entries per member maximum.

5: No graphic violence, or pornography, or other disturbing images, as the winner will be posted on Main Street.

6: All images must be uploaded to Elftown. Ask for wiki-privs if you don't have them already.

7: Have Fun!!!!


Since the chosen images will be featured on Main Street, we would like to keep them fairly small. Your image should be no wider than 300 pixels and the height should be no more than 500. Be creative but please keep that in mind!

2005-08-16 [ally]: oh my .. but it wasn't friday..was It?

2005-08-16 [Sunrose]: oooh fancy advertising banner! :D

2005-08-16 [hanhepi]: not a clue ally. lol. i just thought it was funny that you used it at all. i like the spelling with a z, feels less blasphemous. hehe.

2005-08-16 [FINALLY LEFT THIS PLACE]: right, [Sunrose], that's totally cool O.O

2005-08-16 [Sunrose]: Note: All images that have not been following our theme have been moved to cfc removed. Sorry, but if you want to be able to enter this contest your image has to have the theme in it. The theme of this contest is sci-fi/fantasy creatures in your home/garden: Show exactly that!  -Complaints about your entry-removal can be sent to me. Only well written complaints will be taken into consideration. Thank you.

2005-08-16 [shotokan_gal]: well-written complaints... like it ;)

2005-08-16 [Sunrose]: Hhehehe, I don't mind having to read complaints, but they have to make sense :p

2005-08-16 [Zab]: Whee! Mine is still there! *lol*

2005-08-16 [Sunrose]: It was difficult to remove some, as they were very nice. But they just didn't follow the theme :(  I hope my rewriting of the theme will clarify it more...

2005-08-16 [Zab]: I think it's clear enough.

2005-08-16 [Sunrose]: The rewritten one is now on the page, so I don't know which version you refer to hehe :)

2005-08-16 [Zab]: eh..whichever? I got the theme from the start..I think..Oo

2005-08-16 [FiSHr.]: was mine nice sunny

2005-08-16 [Sunrose]: [Zab]: seems so, but you also seemed worried :P // [FiSHr.]: your art reminds me of ancient cave drawings, the style of the lines. That is what I think is nice about it :)

2005-08-16 [FiSHr.]: ehehe *proud*

2005-08-16 [Zab]: oh, but I'm always worried! XD...never act too sure..then people see one as a threath..<_< >_> *lol*

2005-08-16 [FiSHr.]: awww *comforts Zab&

2005-08-16 [Zab]: *smiles to Noc* I'm not as unsekure as I seem to be, heh...I wanted to add my flying cheeta, but I don't think people will believe me if I say it's in my garden..(it is, tho, kind of)

2005-08-16 [FiSHr.]: woah.... you have a flying cheetah....dude....I've wanted one for ages....and woah we nominated each other Featured member....:O

2005-08-16 [Zab]: XD, already remembering that? Maybe we should stop commenting here, the note is disappearing...*points up*

2005-08-16 [Sunrose]: I was about to say I am going to repost it and will delete chat after that :P

2005-08-16 [Sunrose]: Note: All images that have not been following our theme have been moved to cfc removed. Sorry, but if you want to be able to enter this contest your image has to have the theme in it. The theme of this contest is sci-fi/fantasy creatures in your home/garden: Show exactly that!  -Complaints about your entry-removal can be sent to me. Only well written complaints will be taken into consideration. Thank you.

2005-08-17 [Paz]: I hate my computer! My image comes up fuzzy whenever I upload it here. Only photobucket works but Iwas good and submitted the fuzzy one.... T.T

2005-08-17 [shotokan_gal]: Looks fine to me :) It'll be due to the resizing elftown does to images, though as it's resized for the contest guidelines anyway...

2005-08-17 [Elwyne]: ooh, yay! I wasn't rejected! Of course, if I had been, I would have explained that the picture is actually from on top of my t.v. in my bedroom and therefore, my environment.

2005-08-18 [Kiristo]: I'm going to enter. But mt pic is a drawing, though it needs to be taken with a digi-cam. I don't have a scanner.....but the creature is on my shelf with my stuffed animals that's in my room.^^

2005-08-19 [JP.]: Should the image to be absolutely new or inedit ... Can i post an old drawing?

2005-08-19 [Sunrose]: The best would be to make a new one, but if you have an old drawing that first the theme then I guess you can enter it :)

2005-08-21 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: So is the top piece on my house considered graphic violence?

2005-08-21 [iippo]: XD that's your dog! :P

2005-08-21 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: Well I can change it back to the original drawing that I had up earlier silly.

2005-08-21 [iippo]: XD Sorry, just couldn't resist, it was so funny. "Graphic violence?" *clicks* ... *blink* "That's a dobermann..." XD

2005-08-21 [Sunrose]: It's not a dog anymore :P

2005-08-21 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: Of course it is, see the cute fluffy...thing...?

2005-08-21 [Sunrose]: Nope >.>

2005-08-21 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: Look in the bottom drawing on the bottom left of it there is a dog...

2005-08-21 [Sunrose]: Lol, mmm I guess :p

2005-08-21 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: Either me!

2005-08-21 [iippo]: I guess we must - why else are we visiting your house so frequently? :P

2005-08-21 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: I was wondering that myself. *Winks.* I'm single too.

2005-08-21 [iippo]: o.O My fiancé would resent that... He's the heavy-weight champion y'know... *sweat*

2005-08-21 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: And I realize that lifting weights doesn't make you a soldier. *SMiles.* I thrive on battle love, and pain is nothing to me. I have stitches to prove that.

2005-08-21 [Sunrose]: A warhero..ahw..

2005-08-21 [iippo]: *quickly matches Strevin and Sunrose and slinks to the background to cuddle with her omelet-cooking fiancé*

2005-08-21 [Sunrose]: Can't though, I have [Ittai] :)

2005-08-21 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: Yes...war is great. Helps thin the human herd. Though this war is being fought for all the wrong reasons.

2005-08-22 [ally]: Hmm how ....malthusian ... O_o

2005-08-22 [iippo]: *quickly matches Strevin and ally and slinks to the background to cuddle with her nude-posing fiancé* Ó_Ò

2005-08-22 [Sunrose]: O_o

2005-08-22 [iippo]: Yeah it's going a bit... Yeah. So uhm... Any interesting creatures around people? *cough...*

2005-08-22 [ally]: Nude fiancé: is he there? I'm not to be matched sorry, heart was broken, got a new one, may not leave my body again

2005-08-22 [iippo]: No, nude fiancé is not here. :( different country. :(

2005-08-22 [ally]: aw :( Not even clothed fiancé?

2005-08-22 [iippo]: Nope. Only four more weeks to the return of the at-times-clothed-at-times-not fiancé.

2005-08-22 [ally]: Hmm isn't being home nice ^^. *wished she went to the same art-uni*

2005-08-22 [iippo]: By now it's starting to annoy, since everyone else's schools and works already started. Happft. We have taken over ze official contest page. w00tah.

2005-08-22 [ally]: Hmmf mine starts in october and I don't miss it one bit... also because of the exams...Haha! we did! ^^

2005-08-22 [iippo]: Shall we migrate to a more private wiki before they blast us about chat-commenting?

2005-08-22 [Sunrose]: .... :p

2005-08-22 [ally]: Meh now they have something to read

2005-08-22 [ally]: which reminds me of the ubermessage which is still being impressive in my inbox...

2005-08-22 [iippo]: xD You have also impressive comment speed. 33.14 - 34.02.

2005-08-22 [ally]: >< *still can't type* ...

2005-08-22 [iippo]: *points at half-face-italics curse!*

2005-08-22 [ally]: >< I'm not perfect... yet ^^

2005-08-22 [iippo]: o_O Ze perfect ally says no to perfection???

2005-08-22 [ally]: All_Most PERFECT ally ^^

2005-08-22 [iippo]: I'm assuming my MSN crapped out on me and you can't see what I type unless you type first. My MSN can be like that.

2005-08-22 [ally]: If you have typed something in the last 10 minutes then I can't see it no....

2005-08-22 [iippo]: Thought so. Ah well, I'm pretty much done with internet anyways, I'll probably go back to my PhotoShoppery now...

2005-08-22 [ally]: Hmm *must go back to the books but will not*

2005-08-22 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: We are all perfect amalgamations of confusion.

2005-08-23 [iippo]: I thought it was electromagnetic force.

2005-08-23 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: Blasts of irregular pulsar radiation, undeciphered mostions pass through my flesh.

2005-08-24 [iippo]: Wow, for a while I thought I had come to a different wiki and that Strevin was stalking me. ^^;;;;;;;;

2005-08-24 [ally]: He wasn't?

2005-08-24 [iippo]: No, since this is a normal page.

2005-08-24 [ally]: *doesn't get it* but then again I don't get so many things ...

2005-08-24 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: So no one really answered my question, was my art to "disturbing" for the typical human mind?

2005-08-25 [iippo]: I wouldn't know about typical, but it doesn't disturb me.

2005-08-25 [ally]: What was your art again?

2005-08-25 [iippo]: The troll-thingie impaled on the fence, I think.

2005-08-25 [ally]: o_O I can't remember that one....

2005-08-25 [iippo]: Then go see it in cfc2 lazo!

2005-08-25 [Sunrose]: You people talk too much in here!

2005-08-25 [iippo]: No... it's disappeared...

2005-08-25 [iippo]: Sorry Sunrose :( *disappears*

2005-08-25 [ally]: I can't fnd it there. Nor on his house

2005-08-25 [iippo]: It's goooooooooooone!!!

2005-08-25 [ally]: Apparently..I did recently see a picture with something on a fence but I don't know where or what..

2005-08-25 [iippo]: There's the zombie stuck on my fence in CFC2 history, but that's tsukasa's submission...

2005-08-25 [Sunrose]: Okay, this page is not a chatpage. I will now remove further chat.

2005-08-26 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: I just wanted someone look at my art and see if it was too disturbing for this thing.

2005-08-26 [Sunrose]: It doesn't disturb me, but maybe it be best if you give the exact imagelink of the image you want to submit :)

2005-08-26 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: Well I'm putting them back up on my house. Or at least two of them, plus the drawing of my half-elf Zypher Mast in my disccription.

2005-08-26 [shotokan_gal]: Well, whether they're disturbing or not, none of the pictures in your house seem to fit the theme of 'fantasy creatures in your home'.

2005-08-26 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: do they not fit? You have a werewolf, vampire, half-elf, a reality warping god, a cybernetic killing machine, and a very insane human. What isn't more fantasy based?

2005-08-26 [Sunrose]: They are not on a home environment, try to read the whole theme...

2005-08-26 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: that's a little different...may prove to be very interesting. Haven't really got enough time to do a drawing though...not a good one.

2005-08-30 [Whoozey]: I just drew one up in class, I just got board of math. It took me 30mi to do with out the teacher finding out.

2005-08-30 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: I loved when the teachers saw me drawing. "Oh my, that's evil!"

2005-09-01 [Sunrose]: This contest is now closed. The crew will choose 5 images that will appear in a mainstreet poll. From there all Elftowners can pick the winner out of those 5 images :)

2005-09-03 [Suicidal Moon]: Umm,Hi my drawing dissapeared,i submitted it but now it is gone

2005-09-03 [moira hawthorne]: you didnt follow the rules...

2005-09-03 [shotokan_gal]: You'll find it at cfc removed where images not following the theme were moved.

2005-09-05 [Strevin Lothingurt the Resolute]: *Sycronized dancing.*

2005-09-05 [iippo]: Will you announce on this page when the poll will be up in mainstreet? (Since nowadays I rarely go to mainstreet since ET opens in the messagebox... this new feature made mainstreet a bit less used).

2005-09-05 [Janouk]: But probably, when new news is up, more people will actually read it ;)

2005-09-05 [iippo]: They'll put it in the news as well? That's good.

2005-09-05 [Sunrose]: I will post here if I made the new Mainstreet poll :)

2005-09-09 [sid 32]: sweet

2005-09-13 [Kuruni]: when when WHEN? :3

2005-09-13 [Sunrose]: There have been two crewpolls made. Out of those two polls 12 images have been selected by 22 crewmembers. Out of those 12 images the crew will select the 5 images that will be put into a Mainstreet poll. This final crewpoll has been made just now, so it may take a while before the 5 final ones are actually picked and put onto Mainstreet. And damn, all of those 12 are awesome!

2005-09-13 [moira hawthorne]: I can easy come up with 14 that would be hard to narrow down to 5...

2005-09-13 [Sunrose]: Well of course there are more, but these 12 had the most votes (7 or more).. :)

2005-09-13 [moira hawthorne]: man... why 5? why not the 12? on main st..

2005-09-13 [Sunrose]: Picking such a number is generally random I guess and for this contest the decision was 5. Besides: we want all people to be able to load the page... Putting 12 images there will pretty much crowd the place :/

2005-09-13 [moira hawthorne]: yah... unless they were thumb nails... but it would save the crew from having to narrow it down to 5...

2005-09-14 [LauRRa]: True..i have a preety good ideea on who the lucky 5 could be..^^ I'm just happy i participated

2005-09-14 [kthxby]: There are too many and too good entries. But it was nice to draw. ^_^

2005-09-14 [Kemical Reaxion]: I have no idea who the lucky 5 will be. I couldn't even narrow it down to 12! There's some really great work here.

2005-09-15 [Jitter]: Haha I definately won't be in the 5! i don't even know If I made it in the 12!~ But it was fun to take part!

2005-09-15 [Falx]: I've never won a contest yet, but they are fun. It will be interesting to see who the five finalists are. *hopes she made it*

2005-09-18 [Dragonartist]: when are they going to decide?

2005-09-18 [toycar]: when they have the time to... if it were me, id take months, being lazy and all...and...not being able to choose from this lot of art... the stuff here was awesome indeed.

2005-09-18 [Dragonartist]: lol me too im just exited

2005-09-20 [Jitter]: I won a competition at cathug but I'd like to win something involving creativity!

2005-09-20 [Dragonartist]: lol, this is my first contest

2005-09-21 [Charybdis]: If you had fun, then be sure to check out the huge art contests page! ^^

2005-09-25 [Sunrose]: <poll:61355> :)

2005-09-25 [moira hawthorne]: HOLY! **** Im in the top 5! o.O

2005-09-25 [toycar]: O.O my am i >.>

2005-09-25 [Yncke]: Me too... *happy*

2005-09-25 [Sunrose]: The images in the poll were placed in random order btw, just so you know ;) and congrats with being the council favorites :) good luck to all 5 contestants ^_^

2005-09-25 [Ikko]: darn...I didn't make it owell....¬.¬

2005-09-25 [FINALLY LEFT THIS PLACE]: didn't make it either *gulp*

2005-09-25 [toycar]: I cant believe i did, everything was so good here... congrats to everyone though and thankyou council...people... :D

2005-09-26 [moira hawthorne]: *bows with a flourish* to everyone... hehehe I still cant believe Im in the top 5...

2005-09-26 [Kuruni]: Good luck to the last 5 contestants!!

2005-09-26 [Ocean Soul]: yes, good luck to you 5 :)

2005-09-27 [Paul Doyle]: Are finalists allowed to advertise the poll in their "moods"? *Is mildly curious*

2005-09-27 [moira hawthorne]: yes since there is no rule ( Ive read those 7 rules dozens of times) against advertizing the poll...

2005-09-27 [toycar]: yeah i was scared to do such..but then my friend kathryn said the same as moira...

2005-09-27 [moira hawthorne]: voting for yourself is just crass as is begging for votes ... but there still isnt any rule against it.. that what politians do... vote for me! I promise a pot on every chicken.. or what not.. Ill lower you income and raise your taxes! and shut down your school... wait a min my truth button was turned on...

2005-09-27 [toycar]: haha i hate how corrupt everything is, but... its fun to rant about... :D

2005-09-27 [Yncke]: I think a contest should order every participant to vote for him/herself for several reasons. By entering, you have earned the right not to have to choose between entries (that's the reason I don't vote most of the times in contests I entered. :) ), and no one ends with a sad 0 votes. ;)

2005-09-27 [moira hawthorne]: I got a good Bush joke.. ill send it to you...

2005-09-27 [moira hawthorne]: I never vote for myself... I always vote for my fav of the other participating artists... by entering Im voting for myself.. doing it again is just crass..

2005-09-27 [toycar]: Like yncke i find it too hard to vote... and usually avoid voting in contests im in... though, i dont enter O.O Though... I don't think voting for yourself is crass, in some cases. See...You may like your picture the most... never my case though >.>

2005-09-27 [moira hawthorne]: ok think of it this way... if there are 5 enterys.. and each artist votes for themselves.. than they really didnt vote at all b/c the score would be the same... 5/5 or 0/0 is the same.. but if you vote for someone else than you are saying something...

2005-09-27 [toycar]: hehe yeah, i agree with that as well, i cant vote for myself, i vote for the best piece...which is what everyone should be doing anyhow o.o

2005-09-27 [Yncke]: The trouble with a 'no voting for yourself' is that it can't be checked in an anonymous voting. An all/all with cheaters equals a 0/0 with honest people. :)

2005-09-27 [moira hawthorne]: no it cant be checked in an anonymous voting... but the artist voting for themselves knows.. and I think that is fairly sad... if you think so poor of your fellow artist that you cant find one you like... and that you think so much of your self that after entering a contest you vote for yourself...

2005-09-28 [toycar]: ewewew well.. everyone has different oppinions me guesses... besides the one i like most has one of the least votes, ugh. oh wells...

2005-09-28 [Yncke]: Lucky thing there are different opinions. The world would be quite boring otherwise. ;)

2005-09-28 [Ikko]: yeah!*Shifty eyes as she pets Blacknight*back off....his my raptor!

2005-10-01 [peacefrog]: why are they all fuckin' fairies? Please excuse my rude language, I needed to alliterate!

2005-10-01 [Sunrose]: I think there is actually only 1 fairy in all those 5 images, but OK :)

2005-10-01 [moira hawthorne]: 3 images with faerys... .. 2 cheese eating faerys a fairy under a glass and a painting of a faery in my b/g the others are small elf an incubi and a cat-girl

2005-10-01 [Sunrose]: Well...those cheese eating fairy's are not really your average fairies and the fairy in the painting in your image is not the main subject of the drawing :p

2005-10-02 [moira hawthorne]: the cheese eater arent? and what would be the adverage faery? ...since fae means odd unusual stranger not normal... actuall in the description of mine I call Daryl a fae.. but more technically he is an incubi...

2005-10-02 [Sunrose]: Well to me then.. =p

2005-10-02 [moira hawthorne]: what do you consider a typical faery?

2005-10-02 [Sunrose]: Ehm I guess small, female, happy coloured, winged creatures or something :p

2005-10-02 [moira hawthorne]: what do the males look like?

2005-10-02 [Sunrose]: I am not so sure there are male fairies, they'd look like elves with wings I guess. I don't know :P

2005-10-02 [moira hawthorne]: mine is a male faery... not the one in the top 5 the other one...

2005-10-02 [Sunrose]: Well, you know I am not a true artist like most people here and not even someone who is totally into fantasy. I do like pretty images though and love Elftown :)

2005-10-02 [moira hawthorne]: true artist = faery

2005-10-02 [Sunrose]: Huh? O.o

2005-10-02 [moira hawthorne]: who is to say what they look like or that they even saw one...

2005-10-02 [Sunrose]: As I said: I don't know. I just told you what I thought, not what everyone should think..

2005-10-03 [kthxby]: What a debate, the ultimate battle between the good and the evil. <3

2005-10-03 [moira hawthorne]: debate? I thought it was a friendly chat.. over tea and crumpets! have a crumpet?

2005-10-03 [sk8terbabe]: BITCH

2005-10-03 [Sir. Robert]: Language....

2005-10-03 [Sunrose]: *humps [kthxby]* I see [sk8terbabe] had to say something :p

2005-10-03 [toycar]: I love most profanities... mainly because their actual meaning isn’t at all insulting. :D

2005-10-03 [toycar]: Oh and congratulations to [Amerthyst]! *throws confetti*

2005-10-03 [moira hawthorne]: well bitch just refers to a female dog... and since it was in bold... I suppose it means it was a BIG dog.. maybe [sk8terbabe] has lost her pet Bull Mastiff....

2005-10-03 [pixish]: xD

2005-10-07 [Paul Doyle]: O__o

2005-10-09 [seaman tuna]: seaman tuna

2005-10-09 [Sagacious Turkey]: Chagrined Turkey

2005-10-15 [gangsta_4u]: you guys suck any ways

2005-10-15 [Sagacious Turkey]: Nooo... you have us confused with your mother... believe me... I've seen her videos...

2005-10-16 [toycar]: I made those videos, so i can back you up on that. >.>             *shudders*

2005-11-20 [Artsieladie]: Does anyone know what's going on with the participation badges for this contest? :P

2005-11-20 [toycar]: They are being created. Really...There is no rush to get a badge...remember that the guards do have lives outside of elftown :)

2005-11-20 [Paul Doyle]: Damn. And I thought they rounded them up and corralled them for the night. :P There's a bunch of ET contests which still need badges distributed. I am patiently awaiting two or three more. But no demands. After all, are badges REALLY that important, people? Participate in these contests because you like the challenge, enjoy meeting other contestants, appreciate their work, and all that. The badge is really of secondary importance when compared to these more important areas, yes? :-)

2005-11-20 [Zab]: Absolutly :P *patiently waits for donors-badge for donating to EG,..a year ago* lol!

2005-11-21 [Artsieladie]: I only asked out of curiosity, b/c I just received the acknowledgement for the Halloween Competition. :P

2005-11-21 [Zab]: Yep, well, the badges should come soon. :)

2005-11-21 [Artsieladie]: Ok....  :P

2006-04-21 [Paz]: Hmm... I just noticed something. I don't believe I ever got a badge upgrade for this contest :/ (Unless the art donor badge wasn't upgraded for participants). So far I've only been counted for the Costume Design contest and The Sci-Fi elftron contest. Just not this one >.< If my badge is supposed to be upgraded can it be? If not, I'm sorry to have spammed :P

2006-04-21 [moira hawthorne]: I believe we are all waited still...

2006-04-21 [Zab]: I'll check if the participants will get a badge :)

2006-04-21 [Paz]: Thank you Zab :) I just thought it was odd that the other two contests I entered were updated just not this one...

2006-04-22 [Zab]: All participants who needed a new badge has been badged :)

2006-04-23 [toycar]: ai, thankyou. :)
