**************

I'm proud to present the first Contest here on G-Unleashed.

Are you inspired by the kind of Graphics that you see in Warcraft trailers or the Lord of the Rings movies? I'm talking about the kind of Swords and Sorcery imagery that takes you to another world, where warlords rule by the sword and with magic, anything is possible. Hildebrandt Brothers paintings, or Boris Valero's vodka poster with the topless warrior woman on the polar bear. Or maybe you like the British Metal album covers from the 70's. You get the idea.

This contest is for the Dark Throne section, where there is a gallery setup waiting to show off your art. Dark Throne is a medieval type fantasy game, where you play the part of a warlord in control of your armies. Like Tolkien's world there are goblins, elves, humans and undead.

There will be two categories in which you can submit your work.

You must choose one of these two categories.

Wallpaper - Pictures designed to be used as a background on a computer desktop. Can be made to match any standard screen resolution.

Illustration - Sketches or full colour illustrations. Please try to keep the size of the graphic down. If you're scanning a full page from a sketch book it can get really large. 72 dpi is good enough resolution for the web.

There will be a first and second prize for each category. Prizes include more attachment space on the site and first prize winners get a nifty customized title of your choice!

We will be looking for the best elements of originality, style and composition. All work must be in fantasy type of style, such as I've described to be considered for this contest.

To submit your work, please use the following method:

Go to the G-Unleashed Home Page
Click Control Panel
Click the Gallery Button on the right
Use the form to submit your work (the maximum size is 1MB, jpeg, jpg, gif, png only please)
PM me the link to your picture.

The contest will be open for entries until the 31st of March, 2005. At that time some of the staff members will judge the entries and the winners will be announced.

After the contest is over, thumbnail versions of everyone's pictures will be shown in the Dark Throne Wallpaper/Gallery section, which will act as links to the full sized pictures.

I've never played Dark Throne but Diablo 2 is kinda similar to it. I can draw a fantasy character, I either will do it in MS paint or free hand + scan. That works? can we do more than one?

I guess you can do more than one, but you can only win in one category.

Ok let's get the contest started !
They're all 1024x768, large high-quality PNG files (1-2mb).
Made with a Rome: Total War screen.

Big battle with spotlight. jpg
Nice old painting of The Great War, still in very good condition. jpg
A relief painting of The Great War. jpg
This painting of The Great War is painted on the clothing of a dead enemy soldier. jpg

Well, ok I didn't have much inspiration, but more are coming.
Think you can do better ? Show me !

EDIT: added much smaller jpg versions happy.gif

Thanks you guys for your submissions so far, you can make as many as you like. thumbsup.gif

The original idea was that everyone send me a link, but I guess you can post them here, unless you want to keep it secret, until the end. Carry on. yes.gif

Exactly, any medieval type fantasy theme that doesn't involve guns or spaceships. The results are going to go in the Dark Throne section though.
