Elftown Battles Competition

This contest is closed!


Welcome to the first Elftown Battles Competition! Your goal is to create something with two Elftowners battling in some way. Old fashioned fist fight, futuristic light saber fight, swimming contest, stalking contest, eating contest, the more creative you are the better! This contest is open to art entries, comics, and written work. Bonus points for using little-known Elftowners and humor.

There will be a winner from each category as well as an overall "best of show." The deadline is midnight, Elftown time, March 1, 2005.


The Rules:
1) Whatever you submit MUST be your own original work and follow Uploading Art Rules. Any stolen art will be deleted.
2) You may collaborate with someone here on Elftown but you must give all artists credit.
3) If you wish to collaborate with someone but don't know anyone willing go to Elftown Battle Hopefuls and add your name. Everyone on the list is also looking for a partner so talk to them to find someone you are compatible with. But remember, you can work alone if you want!
4) The art entries may be in comic form but no more than three pages.
5) The written entries should also be kept short, up to three pages. If they are to long they probably won't get read.
6) The battle can be between more than two people but all of them must be Elftowners and none of them can be the artist or writer.
7) There is no limit on how many entries you may make but they ALL must follow these rules, most importantly, they must NOT be random fighting, they must be two Elftowners fighting. It does not have to be a "standard" fight, swords, fists, etc. The more creative the "battle" the better. Who can watch the most movies? Who can eat the most hotdogs? Who can sleep the longest? BE CREATIVE!
8) Entries must be finished BEFORE submitting them. No "under construction" no "I'm working on a picture that looks like blah." If the deadline comes and your entries are not finished we will not extend it for you and we will not count any that are half done. If you post them before they are finished they will be removed.


Confused as what exactly we want? Some examples would be a picture of [Hedda] and [Nita] sword fighting, a comic of two of your friends from Elftown having a cooking competition, or a story about which of these two Elftowners can catch more fish. Be creative, be humorous, have fun!

Still confused or have a question? Talk to [shudson]!

Have some great ideas but don't want to write or draw about them yourself? Want to see someone draw you fighting someone else? Put them here Elftown Battles Inspiration and maybe someone will use it! Are you an artist or writer who wants to participate but can't think of something good? Visit Elftown Battles Inspiration for ideas!

2004-12-17 [i am jack's box]: 10 paces and fire, thats all i say

2004-12-18 [Sue Falkenkralle]: Do I have to asked the elftowners I want to draw for permission? And how many entries are allowed?

2004-12-18 [shudson]: According to me and the crew you don't have to ask them but it can't hurt. You can have as many entries as you'd like.

2004-12-18 [nautulosio]: i need a partner for the writing battles

2004-12-18 [nautulosio]: n-e 1 want a partner 4 the writing battles, im free

2004-12-18 [shudson]: add your name to Elftown Battle Hopefuls but remember, you don't NEED to work with someone else

2004-12-19 [Doormat]: are you taking photos or not?

2004-12-19 [shudson]: If the photo is of two or more Elftowners it would be accepted. It would go under the "Art" section. If we get a lot of photo entries they might be moved to their own section.

2004-12-19 [Doormat]: okay

2004-12-19 [cobi]: can i create one of me and a fellow wlftowner or does the artisi have to find somone who is not himslef?

2004-12-19 [shudson]: the artist has to find someone who is not himself

2004-12-19 [cobi]: the question was does he need to find somone or someones - can i as the artist be one of the battling elftowners?

2004-12-19 [True, plain and simple]: No.

2004-12-19 [cobi]: so i need to find two elftowner that are willing for me to portray them battling. did i get it correctly?

2004-12-19 [True, plain and simple]: Yes. But they don't have to be 'willing', really, but it's better of course if you make sure they don't mind. We don't require you to ask them, though. :)

2004-12-19 [cobi]: ok. i'll see what i can do. this should be a challenge.

2004-12-19 [shudson]: let me say this again:

2004-12-19 [shudson]:

The artist CANNOT be one of the fighters

2004-12-19 [shudson]:

The writer CANNOT be one of the fighters
