[size=4][font=georgia,serif]You may have noticed there are many artistic contests going on right now. Well, here's another and its aimed at the graphic artists out there. Knowledge of Photoshop or other equivalent programs/software is always good but not necessary. You can simply use Windows Paint or download Gimp which is free, and wonderful![/font][/size]

[b][size=4][font=georgia,serif]Rules:[/font][/size][/b]
[b]Either dress up a MD scene with Xmas decor, such as [font=georgia, serif]Xmas[/font][font=georgia, serif][size=4] trees, ornaments, gifts, tinsel anything Xmas related or have MD creatures dressed up as Xmas type characters OR even put them in the scenes, its up to you! Just make sure to add the "MD" in there and don't use anything but your own creations in the scenes and on the creatures- Graphics only no drawings UNLESS you use a program such as paint to do so.[/size][/font] [font=georgia,serif]You may use colors not normally found in MD or stick to the traditional look.Post them here when done![/font][/b]


update![/indent]

[indent=1]
[b][color=#ff0000]Okay, rule updates in order-- Allowing Xmas decor from stock images with no copyright! So if its tinsel, a tree, gifts, Santa hat ornaments, stalkings then you may use it but only the decor! If you want to put people in the scenes, I hope you took the pictures of the people/ babies yourself you MAY update your picture to meet the rules! Thanks [/color][/b][/indent]

[indent=1]I made this with the idea that those of us who are not the best drawers could show another way of being creative, so again,

My changes:

Hope you like them!

Edit: Just noticed the rule that says "[b][font=Georgia]don't use anything but your own creations in the scenes[/font][/b]" .

Some of the items used in the picture I did not hand drawn, or manually drawn using photoshop. They were images that I got from the web and modified to meet my design, so they are not my own (eg. the shadow people on the left was actually a picture of children playing in snow that I messed with to reach that outcome. Same idea with the snowman and the presents).

That probably fails the rule so it probably disqualifies me from this contest. None-the-less, I think the image turned out pretty good =) Edited by Esmaralda

No worries Esmaralda, once you change an image its your creation, after all it's no longer children in the snow. I think both submissions are fantastic myself!

Christmas is coming and it's time for me to bury the hatchet (or should I say Axe) of war. So, I...turned Tree into a Fire tree and decorated it! And I also wished him and its master (Goaty Boy) Merry Christmas (in a certain goaty style).

Maybe Santa will be nice to it this year and it will get something more then coal :D

A clarification would be nice as to exactly what is allowed..I'm getting confused here, Esme did something but Zentao said it's okay, when the rules seem to say something else....

Ok, then my previous entry should be disqualified as I used images of people that I didn't take (the shadow people in the corner were originally children playing in the snow). Maybe if I have time I will redo the image, though I do like how the shadow people turned out =) Edited by Esmaralda

A conspiracy!!!

Recently disturbing events have been unfolding...

See my screenshot of the events to see what the evil priests are doing! Help the tiny men save Christmas!!!

Edit: The picture may be a bit too big for some screens or just looking in here, please make sure to find the details :) (MD is hidden a bit in there)

Edit2: I reattached another version in small, it really looks better that way. I had to stretch it to make it easier to edit, so the first one was big. I removed the first one now.

So I know this may sound like a "duh" question, but we aren't allowed to draw anything at all? Only software is allowed, no pen/pencil? I am still trying to think about what to enter, but I just wanted to make sure I understood before doing anything.

Yes, you got the idea no pencils pens nothing but software, you can however use a paint program such as the basic Microsoft version of Paint or download one of many great free software products, such as Gimp to paint with, or if you are lucky enough to have Photoshop or similar software you may use those. Think computer graphic arts. Have Fun!

Wouldn't it be nice if the lake got frozen, so the Angien could ice skate and we could walk to the shrine during Christmas?
[attachment=3407:Christmas scene.jpg]
Everything is made using GIMP, except for the original scene and the angien.
Those were made using "print screen" :D

      So, the anniversary is over, but a new wave of plushies is descending on the realm.
      As you may have noticed, Cyrus Siridius has been caught trespassing Necrovion and met a premature end.
      Who is this fellow? What do we know about him? This is what a very accurate autopsy revealed:
      You have one week (deadline: May 11 23.59 server time) to draw an avatar for Cyrus Siridius.
      Quoting Aia, the drawing should be in black and white (no colours). Ideally, the proportions should be scalable to an Avatar (which, when scaled down, is 160 pixels high and 100 pixels wide) - however, the artwork should be much larger than this, so that it can be scaled down.
      The best one, based on forum reputation, wins my entire collection of plushies + 13 silver coins (courtesy of TKs) + a little something else.
      In case of a tie, the player with lower Mind Power wins. Should this criteria fail to name a winner, the lower Mind Power with lower number of plushies wins.
      Cyrus Siridius is welcome to participate in the voting, and his vote will count x 10. (Ideally, he gets to keep the avatar, in case avatar managers agree)

      Hello everyone!
      I am hosting another quest for the Anniversary!
      This quest is all about waking up one morning with no idea what happened the night before! (Some of us have there several times)
      Now it is going to be a little something like a murder-mystery style thing. I am going to give each player who registers 3 clues. Players can share clues. Players can also share fake clues.
      However, there is going to be an "actual version of events" that happened. Each player should submit their version of events to me via forum pm at the end time.
      The player who's story is closest to the real thing (by anonymous double-blind judging), shall win! (this is why you can share clues, but every clue you share with someone else makes them have more total clues, thereby giving more information about the story.)
      1 WP for the best submission (either creative or closest to pre-determined story). Anniversary creature for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, if 2, 4, or 6+ players participate.
      PLEASE PM me in the same message I sent you your clues in. This will reduce the sheer bulk of messages in my inbox. K thanks, bye!
       
      To get your clues, and therefore participate, you must register here!
      Registration closes by 5:00Pm ST on 4/14/20
       
      Participants so far:
      iai
      The un of god
      Thilia

      "A recent tour of the Sage's Keep has discovered a new room! While walking around, Chewett2 discovered a new room within the building. How could a new room in a building that has been occupied for 15 years just now been found, you ask? Especially when this building is so big on the outside, yet so small on the inside! Who knows, the obviously original wookiee (chewett2) must have found a hidden gem! Your quest is to describe this new room. Contestants should find ways to describe its layout, its content, its appearance, and even where it is with the route to get there. Players should focus on quality in this contest,  not the speed with which they submit their efforts. Artwork is suggested, it is not required, but it will add points to your score. Artwork will not be graded on talent, but if you draw 4 lines and a stickfigure, it will be graded on effort (to the best of the judges' abilities). This quest has the potential to shape or mold the world around it, thus its rewards have the potential to shape the world of its winner. Remember the context of the sage's keep: who calls this building home? What function has it served? What could be hidden for 15 years? These are all questions that you could strive to answer in your description (they are not necessary to answer, however, nor will answering them impact judging in any way). Good luck!
       
      Rewards:WP for best one. Unique item for first as well.
      Anni for first, second, third if (2, 4, and 6+ players attempt it). Plushies for all.
      Players shall have 2 week to send, via forum PM their submissions to me. They will be submitted to judges in a single-blind fashion.
      Starts on 4/17- ends on 5/5."
       
      If you are looking for some inspiration, check out a similar quest. However, the judges have reviewed all of these entries and will there discard your entry if it can arguably be considered a copy of one of these.
      I will post submissions here when judging is completed.

      In the spirit of Murmas, I wish to run a quest, and seek sponsorship for the quest rewards.

      Rewards thus far:
      1 Voice stone (donated by Burns)
      6 Heat stones (donated by Lintara)
      630 Iron Ore (donated by Fang Archbane)
      6 gold coins (donated by Treasury - 3 to first, 2 to second, 1 to third place)
      1 Petrify stone (donated by Jubaris - for the scariest entry)
      As it were that Murmas approacheth, so must good spirits.
      Thine quest were so:
      Write a Murmas poem, or song, or chant. Thine offering must rhyme, and reference the realm in some way, either of the land, or its beings, or otherwise.
      Magic-speak, or archaic-speak, is encouraged, as were wit, and humour, for which further reward should be bestowed.
      I seek an offering that may bring mirth and cheer to others this Murmas, which were that which above all must affect the final judgment.
      As to the length of thine submission, there remaineth no limit; yet, one must remain entertaining throughout.
       
      Of judgment thereof, such were that of each of the following, a score of up to ten points should be given:
      1. For magic-speak, or archaic tongue, or other mystical construct
      2. For rhyme and prosody
      3. For mirth, and wit - and for this, a double scoring.
      4. For support of those of the realm, that were not scored of the judges.
      I shall accept submissions, within the realm, or within this forum, and they shall be anonymous until they are scored.
       
      I would like to have the entries in by Murmas, yet, I know that the other-realm doth pull one away at that time, and so, I shall accept submission if it were late. These may be given to me within the realm of Mur, or within the forum of Mur, afore the great Murmas celebration.
       
      Merry Murmas, and may good fortune befall thee.

      Ladies and gentlemen, here's a new quest for all of you.
      It's a chance to obtain a headless skeleton, but most of all a chance to unleash the dark side of your creativity. 
       
      You have to create/design a new undead / build-able creature.
       
      So, first of all you need to put down a list of the ingredients you're going to use.
      You can use only items or resources already existing in MD.
      That said, all categories can be used: resources, common items, personal items, default items… everything, but already implemented.
       
      You can use these lists as official reference on what's on the market right now: Items, Resources.
       
      Second, once you have the ingredients and all the needed quantities, you have to detail all the steps of the procedure (the recipe, if you wish) to obtain such a creature.
       
      Third, your creation needs a name and an image; therefore you have to draw the result of your experiments and name it.
       
      The drawing must follow these rules:
      1 drawing per submission, hand-made, original (not copied), black/white, MD noted on one corner - NO player name, NO player ID. 
       
      Submissions are to be sent to me via forum PM, not posted on the forums.
      I will act as a filter and forward your submissions to 3 judges (unaware of the authors).
       
      All participants will receive either an unholy priest or a tormented soul.
      Main rewards will depend on the n° of participants:
       
      if n° < 10: best submission gets a headless skeleton;
      if n° > 10: best submission can pick either a WP or a headless skeleton, second best submission gets the remaining one.
      if n° > 20: … surprise!
       
      Deadline: 31 May at midnight.
       
      If you wish to judge this quest, please send me a forum PM.
