Update: The winning entry was disqualified due to art theft


Greetings, and welcome to Elftown's official 'Design the Guard Uniform' Contest!

How to post your entry:
Add your image after the last one that has been already posted. Don't forget to write its title and your user name. For example:

1. "Title" - [insert user name]


1. NO STEALING ART! Images must be created by Elftowners and posted here by the original artist. Which means, no matter how much you might like a particular image on somebody's house, you are not allowed to add it here. This includes random images from the net too. MAKE YOUR OWN DARN IMAGES, DON'T STEAL THEM AND TRY TO CLAIM THEM AS YOUR OWN! That makes us angry, very angry indeed.
Please put forth your best effort and the best quality, i.e. no drawings on lined notebook paper. Any such entry will be removed. Also, scan your images if at all possible.
Last but not least, it can happen an artwork has the same title as another one; this is not against the rules as long as the artists' names are clear.


3. ALL IMAGES MUST BE UPLOADED TO ELFTOWN! Ask [Sunrose] or [Charybdis] for wiki-privs if you don't have them already; members who follow the uploading art rules, and thus are not troublemakers, will be granted these privs. See advanced help for more information about privs.

4. SUBJECT MATTER: Since the winners will be featured on Mainstreet, images that depict graphic violence, pornography or other disturbing actions will not be accepted. Only images that fit the theme will be allowed.

All mediums, except photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted.

What will we be expecting? Creativity!
The theme is: How should a Guard uniform look?

What is a Guard?
Guards are those members of Elftown who maintain Elftown's order, making sure its members follow the Elftown - Rules and solve conflicts between the members.

Images not following the theme will be removed.

Deadline: 31st of May

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 a squirrel badge, and winners will receive a coloured version of the same (or a green/coloured Masters of Building if they are commited art donors).

2006-04-24 [Atayemi]: How large can they be? :)

2006-04-24 [Sunrose]: Any size you like, we will resize the winners into thumbnails for Mainstreet :)

2006-04-24 [Atayemi]: Alright, thank you! :)

2006-04-24 [Danboo]: Does it have to be by itself or with people in them

2006-04-24 [Sunrose]: You can choose, but I think it will look better if there's a model in the uniform. It doesn't have to be a portrait of an existing Elftown Guard :)

2006-04-24 [Paz]: Hee hee :B Another contest to enter!!  I'll see what I can think up!

2006-04-25 [Windstar]: Hmmm. Possibilities. Is a colored entry more likely to win than a penciled?

2006-04-25 [Windstar]: And can we put two pics in one image, so as to show both the female and the male versions without needing to use both our entries to do so?

2006-04-25 [Charybdis]: Winners are decided by poll, so there's no way to tell if a coloured entry is a more likely candidate than one done in pencil. :) As for the other, I don't know, but I would be inclined to say that putting the two into one entry would be okay, since I would assume that they are variants on the same design and only differing in that they are meant for separate genders.

2006-04-25 [General Jelly Jiggler]: I am sooo gonna win...

2006-04-25 [Windstar]: Ok then ^_^ I'll try to get an entry done in time. Or two.

2006-04-25 [Sunrose]: Except if a member is transgender, what kind of uniform should they have....?

2006-04-25 [Stephen]: Wow, that reminds me of something [Veltzeh] would say. :P

2006-04-25 [Sunrose]: That's because I had Velt in mind :P

2006-04-25 [Stephen]: xD

2006-04-25 [iippo]: I'm tempted to enter different versions for men and women uniforms now just to taunt Velt, because it'd have to choose either one :P

2006-04-25 [Sunrose]: I think Velt is taunted in that sense in reality enough already :P

2006-04-25 [Stephen]: Hmmm...

2006-04-25 [someelf]: I hope mine is not too big then o_o

2006-04-26 [Mr.Scoop]: Uhm, could an entry be the logo that should be on the uniform? Or do we have to draw the whole outfit?

2006-04-26 [kthxby]: Why do I have this image of a macho gay leather uniform in my mind when I think of the uniform...

2006-04-26 [Calico Tiger]: Draw it >:)

2006-04-26 [Sunrose]: [Mr.Scoop]: the contest is about the outfit :)

2006-04-26 [iippo]: Maketsu's been watching too much of Tom of Finland... >_>

2006-04-26 [Mr.Scoop]: Ok thanks [Sunrose], just making sure :P

2006-04-26 [Xeroh Kanoe]: ...KILTS!!! WITH BIG TARGETS!!!

2006-04-26 [someelf]: XD that would be a good idea XD

2006-04-26 [Sunrose]: Big targets? O.o

2006-04-26 [someelf]: So guards can aim at art thiefs and other;; XD

2006-04-27 [Charybdis]: Wait, but if the Guards are wearing the kilts with the targets on them... O_o

2006-04-27 [eyes of frost]: OKay, Sunny, it is only the guard uniforms right? *Scratches head*

2006-04-27 [someelf]: Only the uniforms yes. Is not Sunny but does say so ^^'

2006-04-27 [eyes of frost]: ...I called Sunrose Sunny. Lol. But thanks.

2006-04-27 [someelf]: XD I do it as well, normally just Sunneh or Sunny ^^ And your welcome :)

2006-04-27 [eyes of frost]: Hrm...2 entries...GRARG!! I finally have my paper and I can't decide which 2 to draw...phht. *Sobs*

2006-04-27 [someelf]: Draw both ^^

2006-04-27 [eyes of frost]: But...there is more then one.

2006-04-27 [someelf]: o.o How many? o.o *Blinks*

2006-04-27 [eyes of frost]:

2006-04-27 [someelf]: XD well make a list and choose the best... three ^^

2006-04-27 [eyes of frost]: Can we have placeholders? Or no?

2006-04-27 [eyes of frost]: Oh, and can we have kind of a comic page-type entry? Because the one I want to do is sooo funny...PLEASE??

2006-04-27 [Sunrose]: The contest is about the Guards uniform yes, but as I said earlier it is nice if it is worn by a model (preferably not an existing Elftown Guard). //more thAn one\\ No, you can not have placeholders, they don't serve any purpose really. You can make your entry as you like as long as there is a Guards uniform design :P /// Sunny is my nickname ^_^ don't get it confused with [Sunny Silverunicorn] though because she has the same nickname :p

2006-04-27 [eyes of frost]: Yay. *EWvil maniacle grin* Comic...muahahah....*humor*

2006-04-28 [someelf]: That's why I didn't drew a face ^^'

2006-04-29 [eyes of frost]: *Sighs* I can't get my comic/drawing to come out...8Cries*

2006-04-29 [Rabid Cannibal]: All mediums, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted...Okay I read that. Does that mean that photos are or arent allowed?

2006-04-29 [iippo]: Except photography <-- That means no photos.

2006-04-29 [Rabid Cannibal]: OKay.. thanks (I got confused because it said excepting not just except)

2006-04-29 [Sunrose]: Excepting doesn't equal accepting =)

2006-04-29 [eyes of frost]: Grarg. *Tackles Sunny* IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT!!!

2006-04-29 [Sunrose]: O_o

2006-04-29 [eyes of frost]: X_X

2006-04-29 [Rabid Cannibal]: "Excepting doesn't equal accepting =)" Aye...I got that after a moment of thought

2006-04-29 [eyes of frost]: *Licks Sunny*

2006-05-01 [Xeroh Kanoe]: um...the targets are for the ppl to aim at the guards. ^_^

2006-05-06 [Stephen]: I don't believe I've ever saw anyone tackle Debby before... :P

2006-05-07 [eyes of frost]: Muahaha...I just did! *Licks Debby again*

2006-05-07 [Sunrose]: :p

2006-05-07 [Just.Kate]: Deb-san... May I have a word with you in priviate?

2006-05-07 [Sunrose]: I don't see why you need these wikicomments to ask that...

2006-05-07 [Just.Kate]: Ah just in case you happened to go to your wiki watches first, lol... Sometimes I ignore my messages completely for awhile.

2006-05-07 [eyes of frost]: Muahaha...I so rock teh Debby's world!! *Does the Hamster dance*

2006-05-07 [Sunrose]: I check things by their turn and will get there eventually. Wikicommenting like this will only slow me down and it's not what this wiki is for ;) // *pokes Rachel*

2006-05-07 [eyes of frost]: SORRY!! But I mean...I so do rock your world and you know it!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!! *Stops the endless useless commenting*

2006-05-07 [Sunrose]: =P

2006-05-08 [Xeroh Kanoe]: DOES ANY ONE PAY ATTENTION AT ALL!

2006-05-08 [Sunrose]: No need to scream...

2006-05-08 [Xeroh Kanoe]: read my first comment.(scroll up a bit)

2006-05-08 [General Jelly Jiggler]: About... the targets?

2006-05-08 [Sunrose]: What about it?

2006-05-15 [Cookieholic]: I've submitted a special uniform just for Sunny =)

2006-05-15 [Sunrose]: Thanks for the compliment :P  The thing is though that we can't accept that entry :(

2006-05-15 [Cookieholic]: Ah well, was worth the shot =P

2006-05-15 [Sunrose]: ;P

2006-05-17 [Cookieholic]: What if I drew a ring....?

2006-05-17 [Sunrose]: Doesn't suffice :p

2006-05-17 [Candle Jack]: an outfit? i don't know how to draw one that would look nice on a whole bunch of people...

2006-05-17 [Sunrose]: An outfit yes :)

2006-05-17 [Cookieholic]: Handkerchief then? Or perhaps a towel? You have to know where your towel is! =)

2006-05-17 [Sunrose]: The humor is nice, but we want actual uniforms :P

2006-05-17 [Cookieholic]: Don't you have your own clothes, then? =O

2006-05-17 [Sunrose]: Yes, but they don't look like uniforms =P

2006-05-17 [Cookieholic]: I couldn't persuade you to wear one of those cheerleader outfits, could I?

2006-05-17 [Cookieholic]: Or anyone else of the Guards perhaps?

2006-05-17 [iippo]: What about bodypaint as a uniform? :P

2006-05-17 [Sunrose]: If someone can make a drawing of that, then I guess it is ok :P

2006-05-17 [Cookieholic]: Whoohoo! =D Way to go [iippo]! =D

2006-05-17 [Cookieholic]: Too bad I'm going to London for a week, I don't have time to make anything =P

2006-05-17 [Sunrose]: Shame :p

2006-05-31 [BinaryPhoenix]: Can I still enter today?

2006-05-31 [Sunrose]: Yes, it closes at midnight Elftown time today :)

2006-05-31 [Cia_mar]: so when reading the elftown clock... this 2006-05-31 12:22:01 is noon ? i hope?!?!?!??!

2006-05-31 [someelf]: I believe so yesh o.o

2006-05-31 [Cia_mar]: *sigh of relief* 

2006-05-31 [someelf]: ^^

2006-05-31 [Sunrose]: Yes, Elftown has a 24-hour clock :)

2006-05-31 [someelf]: 6 hours left I believe. Correct?

2006-05-31 [Sunrose]: No, 10 hours: It is now 14:00 and the contest closes at 24:00 :)

2006-05-31 [someelf]: Whoops, your right :) ^^' *Grins nerdy*

2006-05-31 [Cia_mar]: yeah it's done! now i just have to put up those ones of just the uniforms without the people in them!

2006-06-03 [eyes of frost]: So when's the voting going to begin? I know there were some really good entries that I wanted to vote for :)

2006-06-03 [iippo]: First there will be a poll for the council and assembly to choose the top ten. After about a week there will b a mainstreet poll.

2006-06-03 [eyes of frost]: Okidokey.

2006-06-09 [Cia_mar]: was it hard to pick the top 10?

2006-06-09 [Paz]: Not really :P we just vote for who's we think is best (just like normal polls here)

2006-06-09 [someelf]: I wonder how many votes I got from the Council o.O

2006-06-09 [Cia_mar]: yeah i wonder tht too... would they be able to tell us?

2006-06-09 [someelf]: I don't think they are allowed to. Or something like that ^^

2006-06-09 [Cia_mar]: oh i was hopiign to know what they thought... i guess though we all feel that way.. so we can know how to improve for the next time... maybe they should post them back up with critiques and the reasons why they were or were not chosen to be finalists!

2006-06-09 [someelf]: But that up the suggestion box :D *grins* It's a good idea ^^

2006-06-09 [Charybdis]: There's no rule that I know of, but I'm not sure it would be a good idea. Not healthy to wonder who picked what, and if someone were to get no votes at all it would be discouraging, which is the last thing we want :) And yes, it was hard for me at least to pick the ones I liked - or at least, to narrow the list down to a few x)

2006-06-09 [Cia_mar]: where is the "suggestion box" located?

2006-06-09 [someelf]: Yeah, I understand, [Charybdis]. I should've thought of that. (I did but yeah =/) // And I think it is in the forums, [Cia_mar].

2006-06-09 [Charybdis]: <forum:Elftown, Suggestions>, for future reference :)

2006-06-09 [someelf]: I knew it >_<

2006-06-09 [Cia_mar]: thank you!

2006-06-09 [Cia_mar]: o i posted a comment/suggestion!

2007-03-05 [Hedda]: I put the winner up as it seems like no one remembered that. Maybe there should be a link to the voting poll and news too?

2007-04-16 [Paul Doyle]: Just curious: will we be doing this again, or giving the winner to the runner-up? (Kind of like they do in the Olympics, when the gold medalist cheats, is DQ'ed, and the silver medalist gets the gold medal instead)

2007-04-16 [Sunrose]: [Elegy - gone] is the runner-up and she's not available to do new line-art (did ask her out of courtesy), so we will think of something else :)

2007-05-20 [eyes of frost]: WOA!
I missed so much...i was just about to come here and ask the winner who did the art -who is now not the winner because of art theft- why her picture looked like someone else's on Gaia...

Yea, I missed what happened. Someone care to explain? Please? -so lost-

2007-05-20 [Sunrose]: This is an old closed matter :)
