Welcome to...
Iron Avatarist

This Iron Avatarist contest will be judged by

(Ego Slayer/Vorpal Tribble/Hawkeye/Dark Corax)
And probably also me, your dashing host :smallamused:
(Final lineup subject to change - If any of you want to draw instead just let me know!)

Our theme this month is...
OotS Through the Ages

No, not time-traveling OotS (Hmmm...), no, the theme of this contest is to draw the OOTS characters in different stages of their lives. We've seen Haley's teen years in the comics some, but there's no need to stick to canon. Have at it! Draw Roy as a boy or Belkar in his dotage! As always, we're looking for avatars in the OotS-style, with some tolerance for larger scenes and non-OotS-style stuff.

Remember: All artwork must be your own. Do not take, alter, or use any of the The Giant's art. Thanks. :smallsmile:

As usual there will be a First through Third place award for each of the following, with trophies by Oblivion:

Best Baby OotS Character
Best Child OotS Character
Best Teen OotS Character
Best Elderly OotS Character
Best OotS Group (Any age or ages) (>1 Character = Group)
Best Erfworld Character (at any age)

And, as always, the Best Overall award.

As usual, I'll be giving the timeless Rolands Choice Award to the avatarist's creation that most appeals to my, admittedly developing, sensibilities.

Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what category you are trying to enter in.

Every entry must include a bolded introduction as to what your entry is.

For example:
Best Baby OotS Character
Baby V saying something precocious
[IMAGE]

Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.
However, you may submit old creations as long as they have never been entered into an Iron Avatar Thread before. It does not have to be something made specifically for this thread.

All entries must be completed by December 1 at Noon Eastern Standard Time.

In addition to Mr Saturn's retort, the teen goblins changed their alignment in their teen years then changed back. Miko could have done the same.

Not bad for a first start, but you should consider drawing the beard a little higher, because now it seems like it's a goatee. One of the eyes is too big, so resize it a little. And enlarge the robe, it looks like Roy hasn't eaten for weeks. :smallbiggrin:
If you do that, I think you would have a pretty good picture.

Shouldn't he be part-Fey or whatever?

I was considering giving him "Fey-like-qualities" such as Pointed ears or white hair but I decided against it because it would overcrowd the image, bringing attention away from Roy. That and I thought it would be kind of hard.

Anyway you can pretend hes a Quater-Fey.. :smallsmile:

Was supposed to finish this quite a while ago, but huge workloads IRL kinda slowed things down.
Absolutely not canon, but could explain a lot of things.
Anyways, here we go:

Best Child OotS Character
Young Belkar (or as I like to call it: the Seed of Darkness)

Had some slight resize issues, but I guess it's good enough now.

Glad you guys liked it :smallbiggrin:
I orginally thought it would be the posing that would take the most time, but actually it turned out to be placing the "actors" so there could be room enough for the text that proved to be the biggest challenge.

Interesting. Though I didn't enter this contest due to constraints on my time and, frankly, a lack of inspiration, many of the entries are very cool.

Although I'm surprised no one made any references to the seven ages of man.

I had no idea what to do on this one.

And is there going to be another contest roland?

There's one per month (I think) so there will probably be a December one.

There will be a Dec. contest. Maybe not today, though. Sometime this weekend probably. Probably.

Pity. It was pretty neat.

Special congratulations to Thecrimsonmage! This was his first contest and he managed to get a Silver award!! Awesome!

See! I can not steal the entire contest. I only got two golds this time.

Was there no best overall award? 'Cos DrKarling does need another trophy for the Belkar backstory.

Oh yeah? I see the big trophy pic is suspiciously missing from your signature. How often do you recreate it?:smallbiggrin:

2008-01-08, 10:27 AM
Oooh, I actually won someting for once.
Not only that, I won two thingamajigs on a single entry.

Truth be told, I'd been toying with the idea for a non-kanon backstory for Belkar for quite a while, so when this contest came up, I knew I had to do it.
Anyways, glad you guys liked it.
