The King and Queen's Horrorween Official Art Contest

To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the oldest community event in the history of Guild Wars, we are holding a spooktacular Halloween art contest. To enter, post a Halloween art piece that you created in this thread, and include at least one of the event's hosts in your art piece. Below you will find an image of Daniel Frozenwind and Mad Queen Malafide for reference. We accept multiple entries from the same player, but each player is only eligible for one prize.

PRIZES

The top three best art pieces will each receive a grand prize (see below). The winners will be announced at the end of October, after the Horrorween event, and their prizes will be mailed to them in game. The Queen is eager to soon frame your marvelous creations on the walls of her icy palace.

1ST PLACE PRIZE: 200 gold and a highly coveted Llama mini

2ND PLACE PRIZE: 100 gold and a precursor weapon

3RD PLACE PRIZE: 50 gold and a precursor weapon

(With possibly more prizes to follow)

  • Just to clarify, is this contest only for visual art, or also for other kinds of art like writing or music?

    Just visual art my dear. It would be unfair to compare a song or a poem against a painting or drawing, so we are keeping it simple.

    Your Grace, may we ask for close-ups of the faces, weapons, backpack, ornaments, for the works to be more true to your magnificence?

    Of course darling. The post has been updated. I shall also add some closeups of Daniel Frozenwind soon.

  • Magnificent darling! I love the use of color!

  • Your Highness,
    Do you already know the exact day on which the contest will end? If i find enough time, i'm hoping to contribute a humble piece to this marvelous cotest. Speaking of, thanks for hosting this event! I'm always eager to find gw-related art in this forum and hopefully this inspires some people.

    That being said, congrats to the first contestant. The different expressions on those pumpkins are a lovely detail^^

  • Hello.
    Due to my lack of any drawing ability, I hope some works of photomanipulation can be considered art and participate in the contest.

    Entry #1: Fire place vision

    Entry #2: Stairway paint

  • TezPoca dearest, we shall announce the winner of the art contest on the last day of october. We want to give you all as much time as possible to complete your entries for the contest.

    NightDreamer darling, your entry has been accepted, since it is a visual art piece.

    Much appreciated, Your Majesty.

    You guys are so fast. I am still flexing my fingers. I shall post my studies and research in a desperate attempt to push myself to finish in time - and hopefully motivate some participants.

  • Not to worry darlings, there's still the entire month of October to complete your submissions.

    That's awesome, I love "the making of" concepting.

    Also great work to all those who have submitted so far!

  • It is very interesting to see a "making of". I am most curious to see what marvelous piece of art this will lead to.
