Greetings, and welcome to Elftown's official 'Sci-fi Elftron 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, excepting photography (and/or manipulations) and animated GIF's, will be accepted.

What will we be expecting? Creativity!
The theme is: How should [Elftron] look?
The submitted images must be science fiction and must depict [Elftron].
Example: A huge monster science fiction computer.

What is [Elftron]?
[Elftron] is the computer that runs Elftown. Take a look at its Elftown house ^_^

Images not following the theme will be removed.

Deadline: March 31st

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).

2006-02-28 [Mr.Scoop]: Ahhhhh! Well in that case I'll resize my image to be rectangular instead of square! It'll be much more beautiful :P

2006-02-28 [Sunrose]: Eh? The shape itself won't be influenced when we create a thumbnail. So I don't see what the difference is..

2006-02-28 [Mr.Scoop]: No but artistically, an image is more attractive when it's rectangular than when it's a square ^^

2006-02-28 [Paz]: Not necessarily ;) It depends on what the artist is going for in an image

2006-02-28 [Mr.Scoop]: That's true, but take my image for example: <img200*0:stuff/Elftron.jpg> or <img200*0:> The second one is clearly better.

2006-02-28 [Sunrose]: Not because of the shape though :P

2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Why is it better then? ^^

2006-03-01 [Veltzeh]: Well it is because of the shape in the way that the rectangle is a golden rectangle now. :P

2006-03-01 [Atayemi]: Is supposed to be sort of landscape-ish or something? :P

2006-03-01 [Sunrose]: I thought it was better because of the perspective it has now and the left part you added makes it more like a universe.. :)

2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Yes, and it's the rectangular part that allowed me to do that ;) I guess what I'm trying to say is: it isn't because of the rectanglular shape that it's better, but what the rectangle allows us to do...the extra space it gives us. We can do more in a rectangle than in a square ^^

2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: I guess I didn't formulate my first statement as well as it could've been :P

2006-03-01 [Sunrose]: You could add extra space in a square too, if you'd make it bigger :P

2006-03-01 [Sunrose]: How can you know my opinion based on wikipedia? :P

2006-03-01 [Paul Doyle]: Well, it's because Wikipedia is like a blessing from the gods and goddesses. :PPPPPPPPPP

2006-03-01 [Veltzeh]: It's not based on wikipedia, it's based on the golden ratio of which wikipedia generously and easily provides more info. :P

2006-03-01 [Paul Doyle]: Think of monkeys at the monolith, in the film 2001: a Space Odyssey.

2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Well in the end it all adds up to the rectangular shape allows the artist to give an image a more perspective view which in turn adds life to the image ^^

2006-03-01 [Atayemi]: It looks great to me! :)

2006-03-01 [Mr.Scoop]: Thanks ^^
