ECM Fantasy Warrior Photo

Submissions of photo-only artwork images. Read the image-rules on Elftown Creature Marathon (In short, it has to be your image and it has to be free to copy, but it doesn't have to be new). The goal of this contest is to get a nice image of a typical HUMAN fantasy warrior to put on top of the Fantasy Warrior page.

Add your image and a link to your house here.
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.

Upload a great looking photograph of a typical fantasy warrior or a realistically looking photo-manipulation or a dressed up human in case you can't find a real fantasy warrior...

In regards to 'stock photos':

The stock image has to be that of an Elftown member and for a photo entry, there has to be a substantial amount added/done with it to enter it. - The Council.

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.

Except for the normal badges and stuff, the winner will get credits on what we hope will be the best page about fantasy warriors. We will pick one fantasy warrior-photo or more as winners.

Please note the extremely long deadline! It's because fantasy warriors tend to be pretty rare and we want the best shots we can get.

Any entry that does not follow the "Fantasy Warrior theme", will be removed.

Photography with a minimal amount of manipulation. We don't want images that look too artistically modified.

If you have photos of atypical fantasy warriors, you're welcome to submit them here, but we'll mark them as outside of contest.

- The BEST QUALITY photos
- The MOST TYPICAL "Fantasy Warrior" photos
- LARGE PHOTOS represent Elftown having the best Fantasy Warrior Page on the Internet as part of the Elftown Creature Marathon!

What is a typical fantasy warrior?

Well, there are many kinds, but to win this contest you need something that clearly shows that it's a fantasy warrior. A fantasy warrior with an oh, so magical sword, isn't considered a good illustration of a fantasy warrior, if he looks just like a medieval knight.

Some tricks to make it more fantasy
You have to have some proof that your photo is a fantasy warrior and not just a normal warrior. These are a few suggestions:
- The weapon has to be BIG, bigger than is practical.
Plain swords are boring. If it is a sword, then it should have spikes.
- Lots of hair, looking no way near normal, natural hair.
- Loads of muscles or huge, unpractical breasts, if it's a female warrior.
- The armour might be very heavy plate-armour, but for some reason it doesn't cover the face, the stomach and the upper legs and arms.
- Fairies sitting on the warrior or glowing magical items.

Some "don't"s:
No, it's not a child. It's not a fat person. The warrior might be old, but must appear to be in fighting condition.

Some OK's:
Different genders, races and types of warriors are allowed. You can have Greek, medieval European or Japanese, Roman, Celtic, Viking or something else as a background, but it has to have some fantasy in it.

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>

2007-10-06 [Hedda]: Poor orc!

But... Doesn't that belong better on the ECM Orc Photo page?

Oh, the description here is bad. It shouldn't be any fantasy warrior, but my intention was human fantasy warriors (and the other races generally go to their contests).

2007-10-06 [Hedda]: I moved it to the ECM Orc Photo.

Damn, no orc-smilies!

2007-10-17 [Cia_mar]: can it be a human warrior ghost in mid materialization?

2007-10-17 [Cia_mar]: it was an art collab between [Remos Page] adn myself, i will ask if he would like to submit it...

2007-12-02 [Mystin]: WE NEED TO DO FAIRIES!!!

2007-12-02 [Cia_mar]: ok, i will ask him if he woudl like to post it here... thanks

2008-03-29 [Soul Reaper]: will the picture at the top of my page do?
it looks warrior-like 2 me.

2008-03-29 [Hedda]: [Soul Reaper]: It needs to be more "fantasy". Those jeans are a show-stopper, I think. Chainmail tangas are the way to go!

2008-03-29 [Soul Reaper]: its a fantasy weapon (its from blood+ the anime series) lol
its 4ft so its not too small. lol

2008-03-29 [Soul Reaper]: lol when your 6"2 those kind of weapons are hard 2 come by. lol

2008-03-30 [Soul Reaper]: well thats me out as i have no means to edit it at all. lol :P

2008-03-30 [Soul Reaper]: don't know anyone 2 ask. ?

2008-03-30 [Soul Reaper]: anyone want to offer their services? lol

2008-07-29 [Soul Reaper]: the weapon aint big enough. i knew that size does matter. haha :P

2008-08-21 [Subject37]: I must be retarded, I don't know how to submit to here XD

2008-08-21 [SilverFire]: I'm assuming that the photo in your house at the moment is the one you're trying to submit. So go to your house, and right click on the image, a little menu will appear, click the 'properties' option. A little box will appear and the first line of text in that box will have the image url on it. You need to copy that url, and then come to this page, and hit 'edit'. write your username, and then on a new line write <IMG300:THen copy your image url here> and submit the changes to the page. :)

2008-08-25 [Hedda]: The best thing is to use the "Upload a folder of images" button of top of your house. Then you can upload a full-size photo.

And it should be more fantasy-looking. <img:stuff/dand-gif.gif>

2008-11-08 [Urmando The Elfling]: Ah, found an warrior photo of mine, before Urmando existed...

2008-11-13 [Cia_mar]: can the photo be in silhouette form as long as it is identifiable as being fantasy?

2008-11-13 [Urmando The Elfling]: Hah, A replica of Excalibur is everything, exept Boring...<img:Untitled-1.gif>

2009-01-03 [Jewl]: Rrr... if only this contest lasted longer! I need to get to the ren. fair for a sword!!
