Welcome to...
Iron Avatarist


I'd like to introduce you to our judges...

Today's theme is pirates. *Any kind at all! (Including the internet kind.)

You may also have characters from OotS cosplay (dress up) as pirates.

And of course, there is going to be a First through Third place of the following:

Best miscellaneous pirate
Best OotS character dressed as a pirate
Best OotS group picture as pirates
and, of course, Best Overall

And don't forget the Wukei's Choice Award to the avatarist's creation that most appeals to your host.

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

IE
Best Miscellaneous Pirate
http://i7.photobucket.com/albums/y262/Wukei/GiftArttoMe/wukeipirate1.gif

Only the avatarist who created the avatar may submit it.
However, you may submit old creations. *It does not have to be something made specifically for this thread.

All entries must be completed by Monday, July 17th, at 12 am EST. *That is Sunday evening, Monday morning at midnight.

Awesome. Reminds me of those Redwall books. Remember Redwall?

Out of curiousity, how does one get on the judging panel?

Wukei
2006-07-10, 05:37 PM
Before we started IA up I asked four definites if they wanted to be on the panel. They said yes. We also have one guest judge that is an artist himself. Now, Sneak may want off the panel every once and a while to be in competition himself. But he rarely does avatars anymore.

Since when do you need intelligence for it? I could do it when I was 8

Ink
2006-07-11, 09:16 PM
Well I wouldn't think Thog would even know how to log on to the Internet. Or switch on a computer for that matter.


Wukei, I had no idea your character was supposed to be a pirate, even though I drew it ;). This goes under Miscellaneous Pirate then.

Dispozition, that Mal is great. I recognize it now after having watch Serenity.

One of my favorite conversations:

"Do you want to run this ship?"
"Yes!"
"....well, you can't!"

Best Miscellaneous Pirate

http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g144/AngryBalrog/pirate2.gif

And a bit late, I suppose, but I thought there should be a contest for Famous Pirates (Fictional or nonfictional), cuz I kinda wanted to do Vyse.

Wukei
2006-07-12, 11:40 AM
Miscellaneous just sorta covers everything. I basically wanted the contest to be OotS or non-OotS for the simplicity. I really took it out of my judges with the last contest having 7 categories.

I don't know if we'll have any OotS group entries...but it'd be nice.

Wukei
2006-07-12, 12:23 PM
Not necessarily. I love my avatar, but it's not my obvious choice. Of course, this'n'll be hard for me since I'm a pirate fanatic.

Does my Mal avatar still count as an entry? Because he technically is a pirate? I won't mind if it dowsn't though.

TinSoldier

These contests have so much Miko vs Belkar goodness! First Miko/Aerith slays Belkar/Sephiroth. Now Belkar gets to walk the plank! I'm lovin' it!

Technically, 0 at thhe moment...though I believe Ink's counts as OotS group as there is more than 1 character in it.

I like to think that Thog is actually very bright and is simply playing the part of a dumb ax wielder.

OotS Pirate Group

http://i55.photobucket.com/albums/g144/AngryBalrog/OotSpirates.gif

I decided to enter because there's not much competition. But the competition already is very good.

Oh, and Elan is tied up in the brig at Captain Roy's orders. Who knew he didn't like hearing "A Pirate's Life for Me" 56 times in a row.

And V, of course, has his faithful parrot familiar, Redwing.

TinSoldier
2006-07-13, 11:15 PM
I like the stubble on V.

Beleriphon
2006-07-14, 01:16 AM
I like the stubble on V.



Its not stuble, V has a horomone problem. ;)

Ink
2006-07-14, 03:45 AM
Per Scurvy-Ridden Elf's suggestion I've modified the Miko/Belkar picture and added Windstriker as a pirate parrot.

Not sure if I should change the category to OotS Group. Guess I'll leave it for now, since Miko and Belkar aren't part of the same group.

Belkar, he wields two ranged weapons and in case you didn't know ranger's have to pick a combat style (ranged or two weapon)

Wukei
2006-07-14, 03:21 PM
What's it matter if he's not a ranger in this...he's a pirate?

If you want to take up the fact that belkar weilds two daggers (ranged weapons) that's elsewhere.

It was a joke

Keebler_the_Elf
2006-07-14, 03:23 PM
I think it was a joke, since he has two weapons (in the avi above), but they are both ranged (guns) so it was suposed to be funny. *Ranged or two weapon...

DarkCorax

Yeah... its meant to be the OotS with "Pirate Queen Haley", Haley is in the Hammok, Elan is Holding the Fan-thing, Roy is holding the Wine, Belkar is being a Treasure-Chest Table, Durkon is sitting on the Rum, And V is Casting a Spell (no Idea why though...).

*snickers* Good, then it is easy to figure out... I wasn't sure on the pose, but I guess it's clear enough. I had to do that, since in most of the campaigns that I've been in where we had any type of sea-based travel, it was always the elf that hurled first!

EDIT: Out, out you spelling and grammar demons!

For a second I thought that I didn't win anything, but then I remembered that I was TSRE a week ago. Go me.

And I reused so much art during this competition that it isn't even funny. I still did a lot of work, but looking back, I only created one character (Haley) from scratch. Two if you count Blackwing.
