Too long, get to the point!: Art competition, rules below, GOLD prizes, bonus competition, stupid not being able to update original thread, had to make a new one with new deadline
I am Sylvari explorer Thereon Avenrise. I have traversed the highest of mountains, delved into the deepest of caves. I have stood side by side with the greatest fighters in all of Tyria. I have spent my life defending those that cannot defend themselves. But slowly I came to realise that my adventuring days were over. Remembering times of old I asked artists from all over Tyria to recreate my adventuring days of old. I received many masterpieces and after a short time crowed the winners. With the grand event over I left and to find some peace amongst the forest.
One year later, having returned to the dreadful tales of Mordremoth and the worrying discovery of Balthazar walking amongst us, I feel the need to lend my hand in the battle of good against unknown evil. My fighting days are long over, my weapons mounted to the walls of my homestead becoming one with the structure as I have become one with the forest. But a wise Asuran friend once told me “You need insurance, Miss Avenrise…. against the ills that could threaten your ways” and so I put some rare materials into a secure vault for such a catastrophic event. I have a frightful feeling that such ills are about to present themselves and so I hereby declare that I will free up my resources to all those that deem themselves worthy of them.
In the face of extreme danger calmness must take precedence. I see no better way to become one with thyself than with the creation of art and so, with the days counting down until the return to The Crystal Desert, I propose the SECOND Great Art Competition.
I quit playing GW2 a long time ago and realised that I had a lot left on my account. I ran an art competition (original thread HERE) to give away everything I owned and left the game with some amazing artwork for my gold, gems and items. Shortly after that I realised I hadn’t checked my mule guild banks- I found that the mats I kept for future equipment were now worth a lot. So… another competition anyone!?
I have posted a series of screenshots to an Imgur account linked below and it is your task to use what you can see in addition to the added rules to create a visual masterpiece! This could make a great solo project or an even greater guild event in the run up to the next expansion and I encourage everyone to participate no matter how skilled you think you are.

2nd Place: 1000 Gold.

I understand that not everyone is convinced of their artistic talent but I encourage all to try, even just for the chance of the raffle prize!
