[Competition] Clan War Banner!
« on: June 17, 2019, 06:58:46 PM »
Competition Time!

Clan War banner, artist and writers competition!

Q1 - What is this?

A1 - This is a competition... for artists and writers to try their hand at a dab of duality in their efforts. The aim is to draw, photo-edit, paint or create by any visual medium you can think of... an artistic representation of the Red Blade Clans iconic war banner. Furthermore, you'll also need to write about it!

Q - Hang on a minute, draw and write?

A - Yup! Each effort will be rated out of ten overall. 5 points out of a potential five for the art, and five points out of five for a write-up explaining the piece, its potential history, it's significant points and so forth, possibly even from an IC standpoint!

Q2 - What is the Clan War Banner?

A2 - It's the iconic banner our clan, carried by our champion (winner of the tournament of the blades) into battle, the sum of 15 years of guild warfare, dozens of campaigns, epic moments and battlefield beat-downs. It has yet to receive a proper name... (maybe you could come up with one?). What matters is, when the banner is raised, some Alliance or any other dastardly fiend are getting their butts kicked. The clans war banner can only be unfurled at the command of the Chieftain, and is carried by the clan champion as it's a symbol of their and the clans honor, even becoming a focal point for challenges on the clans honour personally and in war.

Q3 - So what exactly are you after?

A3 - Two things!

1) A drawing, painting or photo-edited image made any visual medium you see fit. The Banner should display the clans emblem, and any suitable trophy's of war you view apt, likely best from the guilds long history (little research project for you!).

2) A write up, it doesn't have to be a novel (or it could?), about why you shaped your image as such, with as much IC information, back-story and even a suitable name, as you can muster.

Q4 - How will this be judged and what are the rules?

A4 - Hopefully a suitable neutral judge will be picked in due course to render marks for the competitors efforts, your art will be marked out of 5, and write up out of 5 also. These marks won't be rendered public because every contribution deserves not to be looked down on, and frankly any effort is a good effort. The rules will be as follows...

1 - All art must be your own, no tracing, borrowing or having anyone else create it on your behalf.
2 - You can work together as a team up to a maximum of three persons per submission.
3 - The final submission must be posted on this forum thread by July 15th.
4 - Submissions can be made or posted immediately, but you can only make one submission per person or team, and these will be "locked in" on July 15th.
5 - Bribing the chieftain with waffles, chocolate and cat cuddles will result in a violent-- *Garrote*;)

Q5 - What's in it for us?

A5 - Aside from the fame and glory of making such a contribution to clan lore? 50,000 gold is to be won, for yourself or your team!  :o

So... enjoy and... Best of luck!

Is this where I sneak in with my uncoloured MS paint drawing and steal 1st place?  :o

Only joking! I hope you get a few submissions before the date is up Okiba! It's a great competition idea, I just sadly don't have the artsy skills to join in myself!
