  • The Ninth Age Presents: Art Contest I!

    Against Warriors of the Dark Gods

    The theme for this competition is: Warriors of the Dark Gods versus others. See this beta army book if you are looking for inspirational material.[/url]

    Warriors of the Dark Gods are a constant presence all around the 9th Age world, with Dark God cults arising in harsh nomadic societies pushed to the margins by settled peoples (whether among Hakim Nomads in the Great Deserts, Silexian tribes, Åskland raiders or among barbarians roving along the outskirts of the blasted Wasteland), or among depraved or dissatisfied civilized people trading away their souls for a shot at immortality.

    Do not be shy of inventing your own takes on anything concerning Warriors of the Dark Gods, including wild high fantasy concepts and glancing at real-life tribes for inspiration. You can do the most outlandish stuff, and be welcome to root your Warriors in local cultures never before seen illustrated in pact with such dark forces.

    Entries could range from duels between individuals to full-blown land battles; monstrous air combat; sorcerous struggle or naval clashes on the high seas; or something else entirely.

    This can be done by drawing, sketching or painting it (i.e. no miniature entries). Digital tools are allowed, and some scribblings as seen on many concept sketches are likewise allowed, but please keep any text amount low. The amount of work invested in the art entry can vary from a simple sketch up to a full-blown illustration. Flat embroidered textile art (e.g. in Bayeux tapestry style) close-up shots and flat relief carvings are allowed, but for these materials you're encouraged to ask the contest organizer first with some details explaining your plans. Note that several different art pieces are allowed to be included in one and the same image file entry, e.g. two different painted illustrations, or a bunch of sketches leading up to an inked drawing. Sheer mass is no guarantee for advantage in voting, however.
