Artisans Contest XWillmark 04-17-2011



Welcome all to Artisan’s X!

What to enter?
The theme for this Artisans is to draw, illustrate, what have you, banners for the Dawi Zharr and their units. The banners/flags are to be line drawings with no colors color shading etc added.

What do we mean by this? Simply draw them in black and white and then scan them or draw them in your favorite computer application of choice.

Think of this as an outline of your design that people could use to color in with colored pencils, markers and the like to use and attach to units of their own armies. This contest has the benefit of letting your creative ideas flow as well as being able to produce banners that folks who are less skilled at illustration/banner making. Who knows, maybe you'll play a fellow Chaos Dwarf player some day with banners on his units that you created!

(For purposes of Dawi Zharr [Chaos Dwarf Army units] refer to the unit types listed in the Ravening hordes list PDF). In other words: Chaos Dwarfs, Bull Centaurs, hobgoblins, goblin, and orc units. For the purposes of this contest IGNORE any Dogs of War units as the focus of this contest is on Chaos Dwarf units, NOT the mercenaries they might hire.

Deadline
The deadline for the submission of entries is the 4th of June 2011, 11:59pm EST.

Only enter if you are happy with the rules as they are stated below.

Rules of the Competition
Each member may only enter once.

There is no minimum or maximum size limit, though bear in mind that the idea is that these could be used in an actual army on the table top. Its probably best to draw at a larger scale then shrink them done before submission.

How to Enter?
To submit your entry upload up to 4 images to the internet, these cannot be a montage shot. (NOTE Only 1 scan/photo is needed for this contest but you may send more of your single banner if you wish). Next send a PM to Staff (a special user that all Staff have access to) with links to the images.  (Note: This is the same as previous Artisan's Contests)  

If you feel the place you are uploading it to shrinks it too much (as I think photobucket may), email it to cdostaff@hotmail.co.uk  but please send a pm to the Staff account as well to let us know you have entered it this way so we don't miss it. Wink

How will this be judged?
After all entries are gathered a voting thread will be assembled from all of the entrants. The Staff will review and if we have to discount any entries we will do so prior to the thread being made public.

If there are more than 10 entries there will be Silver and Bronze Artisan's medals.

All entrants will be given a number of slaves equaling the total number of entrants (10 entrants = 10 slaves per entrant etc)

If there are any questions please contact a member of the Staff.

Cheers! Great idea for a contest!

I've been needing to figure out some banners for my units...hopefully this will help move that along.

Plus it gives me something to do during BORING meetings at work...Unsure

Cheers,

I think Willmark means not one picture of all your banners.  Single banner per picture.

Please correct me if I'm wrong Will...

Cool, so you can upload up to 4 banners of different designs, but if you do so you must have separate shots of each, upto 4.

Love the simple idea.

Q:- Would using a simple draw system eg:- paint.exe if we don't have access to a scanner, and I don't think my camera will do that close up (even my new one I fear)
-answered in reading the fist post PROPERLY!

No I'm thinking one banner per contestant, as such you'll only really need one picture of your banner.

Oh...so we can't submit a page of 100 banners then? (Like tiny ones drawn on an 8X11 sheet of paper simular in layout to the old Warhammer Presents Chaos Dwarfs book.)

Just one only?


Amaze your friends when you post your Chaos Dwarf model pictures on our forum at http://www.monster-hobbies.com today!

So, just to verify, an entry would consist of a single black line illustration (think: colouring book).

Is it permissible to include a coloured version of your banner in addition to the black line illustration, just to show what a coloured version could look like?

Now I'm confused...Why would we need to send in up to 4 pictures of the same banner?

RE: Artisans Contest XHashut's Blessing 04-18-2011

Blue: That's why it's been said that you'll probably only need one Wink If you wanted to send in 4, you can (as it's a blanket rule for all of the contests), but it's one banner and only one picture is strictly necessary.

Indeed most contests (typically the modeling ones) have required multiple photos for the contests. Its really not needed in this one other then one shot.

So to get this absolutely clear. It is ONE banner design and not a SET of FOUR banners.

ah right, so wouldn't 'one picture' make far more sense?
why would you need to duplicate the same image over and over?
Is the idea one of each side if they differ?

I am thinking that "trying to keep the rules simple", ie One-size-fits-all, they have just became complicated.

But I think we all get it now....so people.....start.....drawing.

RE: Artisans Contest XWillmark 04-19-2011

Ahhh the nature of us warhammer players overanalyzing everything!

This is for one drawing of a flag/banner and take one scan/picture of it and submit it.

For the sake of this contest keep both sides the same unless you follow the example mentioned below. It may get too confusing for folks if they see two different images: (hypothetical response I'm sure to get: "How come person X submitted two flags when the rules say only one.")

For example of this contest look at the Word of Hashut #6. Inside there are examples of banners and how to draw them. The ones by TwilightCo are particularly good examples on page 37. http://www.chaos-dwarfs.com/forum/showth...p?tid=6401
