RULES:


1. GENERAL RULES:
For the general rules see Elftown Creature Marathon#RULES!

Copied art is NOT permissible in Elftown's Official Contests. Please see: Copying vs Fanart & Referencing.

2. EACH MEMBER MAY SUBMIT ONE (1) ENTRY
Exceptions might be offered if there is a valid reason for it. But, if you do submit more than one image, you will greatly lower your chance of winning, as the votes for your style will be spread out on two entries.

3. ALL IMAGES MUST BE UPLOADED TO ELFTOWN!
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.
<URL:upload_zip.html>
Once you click this link you can follow the instructions. See also uploading images.

4. THEME:
Any entry that does not follow the "Drow theme", will be removed.

5. MEDIUM:
All mediums, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animations will be accepted.

REMEMBER THE GOAL: We want:
- The BEST QUALITY images
- The MOST TYPICAL "Drow" images
- LARGE IMAGES
...to represent Elftown having the best Drow Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!
This may be helpful: Drow.

Brief description:
Appearance (from Drow):
The Drow are characterized by white hair, which can vary between all tones of gray. White-copper and white-silver hair are also spotted every now and again, but usually indicates foreign blood.
The main chunk of Drow has red eyes, which stems from their ability to use heat vision. Other colors sometimes appear, but again, most indicate foreign blood. The red shade can be everything from flashlight to almost purple red. Though purple itself is usually an indication of blindness.

Reward:

Aside from the regular rewards, as mentioned on Elftown Creature Marathon, the winner will receive credit for contributing to what we hope will be the best Drow-page on the entire Internet.

Three important notations:


---> #1: When the finalists are posted in the Main Street Poll or on a public poll page, the participants are not allowed to beg for votes for their own entry. Do not ask people to vote for your entry via private messages, guestbook messages, moods, wikis, or by any other means. Your entry will be disqualified if you are caught doing so. It is perfectly fine to advertise THE POLL, however!
---> #2: If you feel any of the entries break the rules, please speak up before the entries make it to the polls. You can still speak up even after the contest is closed, as long as the polls have not yet gone up yet. Complaints received after the aforementioned will not be considered valid.
---> #3: For discussions about the Elftown competitions: Here it's discussed if an entry is in accordance with the rules and similarly more complicated issues that can't be solved with a simple wiki-comment. Go to: <forum:Elftown contests>

/Thank you - the ECM Mods and the Elftown Council.

How to post your entry:
Add your username and entry after the last one that has been already posted. Number your entries, title them, and thumbnail them to 300 (Please upload big images!), and separate them with the <hr> tag:

Title your entries, please!

A title more than just "Drow" is needed.
Thank you!

2008-11-10 [Yuriona]: Bad Jitter! You forgot to thumbnail! LOL!

Question though: is fanart allowed? :P

2008-11-10 [Jitter]: I did? Heh soryy!

Meh if it's not I'll just turn his eyes red :P

2008-11-10 [Yuriona]: LMAO!

2008-11-10 [Jitter]: ;) I will probably make something new though anyway, especially judging from how many times I changed my fairy and elf entries :P

2008-11-10 [Yuriona]: You just wanted the first spot. :P

2008-11-10 [Jitter]: I just happened to have a drow at the ready :P

2008-11-10 [Falx]: I hope this is all right.

2008-11-10 [Artsieladie]: I knew it! I saw the changes already and so I took bets that [Jitter] was here first thing and yupper, I was right! Cool! I don't mind you making changes. It gives me a chance to view several of your lovely art pieces. ;) [Falx], yours is fine to me. :)

2008-11-10 [Falx]: Good, I was hoping dark elves were all right, since the Kazyreth from my story aren't really drow. ><

2008-11-10 [Artsieladie]: Well, I'm thinking they can be classified as different and the same, depending I guess. This is from Wikipedia: Dark Elves

In Scottish Folklore:
"The <i>Drow or the dark elves are the Shetland Isle equivalent of the Trow, but unlike the trow, they are thought of as exclusively malicious."</i>

I'm definitely interested in the thoughts of others here about this. ;)

2008-11-10 [Falx]: I suppose it would depend on if we're using the definition (which is more general) of drow from wikipedia or if we're talking strictly Forgotten Realms...

2008-11-10 [Jitter]: The D&D Drow are also called Dark Elves. Drizzt's very own trilogy is called "The Dark Elf Trilogy" :)
