    samon reacted to Shadowseeker in Draw your aramor!   
    Why don't people draw their aramor versions for the anniversary, and let us judge which version is the best, and if it possibly beats the anniversary aramor even?

    Depending on the amount of people I might adjust prizes- I will however need at least 4 to 5 submissions for a possible WP, depending on the quality. Otherwise, I will fund this with coins.


    I'll submit my own somehow later (if i get to draw properly).

    Edit: It is YOUR version of it- as I pointed out, dst could make a red one for example, since right now she is dst the Red.

    I'll give extra points for those who draw from scratch or at least sketch it (meaning unless your coloring blows me off completely, no WP), but only coloring can still win a few silver.

    Our world is made of smaller bundles of energy turning around bigger bundles of energy, the earth turning around it's core, planets around a star, stars around a black hole etc...

    And now for the question why the sun, the stars have enough energy to send it out but don't have so much energy that they suck up their own energy. because of that stars make live able around them, and of course the sun is the star closest to the earth of which we best feel the present.

    a small tutorial on how to use gimp to create a good transparent avy:

    first you should take all color out of the picture:

    Image > Mode > Grayscale
    Image > Mode > RGB

    and now we're going to start making it transparent:

    Colors > Color to Alpha
    set the background color to RGB = 241.239.214 or Hex #F1EFD6
    Filters > Web > Semi-Flatten
    and save it as a .gif file, select Convert to Indexed using default settings (You can convert to indexed before you save, it's up to you)

    and you're done

    don't forget to scale you're image to 100 x 160 px

    and credits for the semi-flatten go to ravenstrider

    samon got a reaction from phantasm in Shadow's Quest   
    EDIT: I can enter Loreroot now.

    [s]I’m actually not allowed to enter the contest jet (because of Loreroot) but I still want to give my solution of the problem. [/s]

    Using bait would be a good thing to do if we knew who would be the next target, but since we don't know exactly how the shadow picks the victims it picks the chance is too small that it will fall for the bait before he takes down many others.

    What we need:
    Mirrors (or one big one)
    A candle (or another small light source)
    A rope (or anything else that could be used to immobilize someone)

    I suggest we wait for the shadow to target it's next victim. When the victim is found (it won't be hard to recognize because of his black eye) he should be summoned to an empty room in a remote location . In the room should be as little as possible obstacles that could cast a shadow to prevent Phantasm's shadow to hide in them. Furthermore the room should be completely without sunlight, but lit by the candle (or the other source of light). In this room Phantasm will have to make the victim unable to move around, it doesn't matter how although we don't want to kill the victim so I suggest using a rope. With the slight amount of light the shadow should be weak so it won't be too hard. When the victim is immobilized we have to open the room to the sun, we have to lit up the room so that the only shadow in the room would be Phantasm's if his shadow would be attached to him. To light the room in the right way we should use some mirrors and put off the candle so it won’t interfere with the light leaving another shadow. Also we have to make sure we don't kill the shadow right away so the victim should have a tiny shadow where Phantasm's shadow can hide himself. The victim's shadow should be made smaller until Phantasm's shadow is nearly erased. Then the shadow would have to reattach himself to Phantasm in order to survive.

    From then on it's up to Phantasm, he will have to fight the shadow (not directly of course but as a fight of willpower) until it obeys him the way any normal shadow obeys it's source. The only thing we can do to help is close the room one's, so the shadow is on it's weakest again. Now we will have to wait until the fight between Phantasm and his shadow ends. The only thing Phantasm can do to prepare for the battle is rest and take in all the energy he can. To me this seems the best possible way to catch the shadow and reattach it to Phantasm.

    I have a feeling I’m almost able to enter Loreroot but I still can’t, if the tactic I have in mind works I will be able to enter by tomorrow evening.[/s]
