    Once you have put together your portfolio you can do it a few different ways.
    1. Save the pics to your PC and you can drag them and drop them into your forum post.

    2. Upload the pics to imgur or photobucket or any other picture uploading site, then click the icon in your forum post toolbar that looks like a sheet of paper, past the link to the image in it.

    3. Upload the pics to the aforementioned picture sites, and just copy paste the link into your forum post.

    After speaking with the judges, you may use more than one set as long as you list each out per picture.

    But there needs to be 1 Primary photograph (which is what the community will be voting on) and up to 3 secondary that bring out the best qualities of your model. Use your best judgement

    Looks like peeps already can't follow these rules, confusing "one main glamour pic with supporting pics" with "let me just post 4 different fashion sets/pics that have nothing to do with each other". Let's see if Domino actually enforces the rules instead of letting people win with anything.

    When we select the finalists we will be looking at the primary photograph. the secondary ones will be used o decide finalists in the event of a tie. When you guys vote on the winner, you will be looking at the primary glamour photos only when making a decision. :)

    Hey Domino, I would like to participate, but I find it a bit unfair, and wicked, that "the community" gets to choose the finalist, this one event it's going to take much time and efforts from whoever who chooses to participate, Iam not much encouraged by the fact, that the community, meaning alts, and people who can just choose their friends, can get to have the last saying.

    It is nice that we get to say and vote, but needs to be taken into account how this things tend to get played.

    Also, if someone win, this person wouldn't get any credit for their own creation? Thats nasty. Isn't it? =)

    After the backlash with our past creativity contests, we're trying something a little different this time. So we'll pick the finalists, and you pick the winner. Also that last part is nasty yes, but it's that nescessary small print we have to put out there.

    this contest is separate from the fashion model contest, as in one person could win both the design and model contest?
  • thenamesdomino

    It's entirely possible, these are two separate contests.

    another question, is it ok to use stock photos from like google for elements because drawing things by mouse is no bueno xD not like for the whole design but bits of it just to give the intended idea.

    Yes... Edit: I think its something to do with the amount of characters you use in your post, if you go over a limit they have to check its not spam or something? idk... but i shortened mine and it posted :)

    Domino, another question: so 5 fav designers per race means:

    Kindred x1 Winner with all rewards + x4 secondary winners with partial rewards.
    Elf x1 Winner with all rewards + x4 secondary winners with partial rewards.
    Human x1 Winner with all rewards + x4 secondary winners with partial rewards.
    Marksman x1 Winner with all rewards + x4 secondary winners with partial rewards.
    Stoneman x1 Winner with all rewards + x4 secondary winners with partial rewards.
    Demon x1 Winner with all rewards + x4 secondary winners with partial rewards.
    Lycan x1 Winner with all rewards + x4 secondary winners with partial rewards.

    Is that right? x.x

    As long as we have the requisite amount of entries per race, yes.

    You can also draw pen to paper and submit the photograph. The idea is to create an original work. Now I know that just about everything is inspired by everything else so as long as you directly ripping someone else's work and passing it off as your own you should be okay.

    Oh well, I got excited about this contest, but when I saw the thing about the creator not even getting as much as credit for their design, I basically lost all respect for FW... At least you are upfront about how shady your are. I don't expect or hope that many self respecting artists take part in this, because then FW would be making profit with something they didn't even design and the designer wouldn't even get their name out there. Shame on this, I expected more from you. :(

    Something that hit my eye is that 50% of these entries have on literal full sets of fashions. I hope that the top 10's will not consist of only those entries, seeing how one of the criterias is to show how creative you can be with the fashions. You can seriously start questioning the picking methods if we'll see 1 out of 10 finalists actually being creative while the 9 remaining are just people who have slapped on a full set. ;)

    Graphic designers rarely get credits in the gameworld, where are the credits in all the other fashions in game, which might be designed by a community event in China.

    Besides, the winners from this event will (likely) be proposed to the chinese developers, which will have to design it from scratch IF they pick it at all. They might sya nahh we dont like it or put it on a pile to be never seen again.

    The reward is "praise" from the forum community here and the fashion set of your choice, which is what this event is ment for.
