Artisan's Contest XXIIIAdmiral 11-17-2017



A lonely watch. A thankless death.




Zanko Presents: Artisan's Contest XXIII!

Watchtower Artwork Challenge

The goal here is to create a piece of artwork depicting one or more Chaos Dwarf or Hobgoblin watchtowers. 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.

Grab the opportunity to present us your take(s) on Dawi Zharr or Hobgoblin watchtower! Your entry could be a sketch, a technical/architectural schematic or an illustration. You could depict a lonely watchtower out in the ashen wastes or overlooking some craters, open pit mines or lava springs, or even place a watchtower in the middle of a lava pool. Likewise, you could have a watchtower out of the rock wall of a mountain or an open pit mine, overlooking the wilds or works below; or a coastal watchtower; a mobile watchtower mounted on a train car; or even a watchtower floating on the water or in the air; or something else completely!

Surrounding facilities such as lodgings, stables, stores, water tanks or barricades are welcome if entrants want to add such details to the watchtower. Watchtower personel are welcome, and if you want to include a scene of enemies sighted, Nasty Skulkers climbing the walls of the tower or monsters attacking the outpost, a mechanized war caravan steaming past or an important courier being received, then by all means do so!


Prize

The gold winner will recieve one kit of four 15mm Tjubling blunderbusses from Admiralty Miniatures (note: can be used for terrain decoration in 28mm collections):



Plus Grulka Blackhand, Dwarf Heroine, from Titan Wargames. Courtesy of Zanko!



Furthermore, Zanko has donated Marrog Blackhand, Dwarf Hero, to the silver winner:



And Cinneron Dhum, Dwarf Pyromancer, for the bronze winner:



Should you wish to donate a prize to the contest, please PM Admiral or Bloodbeard and they will sort it out with you and the Staff.

Deadline

The deadline for the submission of entries is December 8th 2017 at 11:59pm EST. (3 weeks!)

Rules of the Competition

Each member may only enter once.

Sketch, draw, paint and use digital tools to come up with an artwork or concept image of one or more Chaos Dwarf or Hobgoblin watchtowers.

Submissions should include one picture file only. Your one picture with art may contain any number of objects, figures and scenes.

You may not submit a picture of a drawing or painting that have been entered into other online competitions or posted in a finished state before.

Don't post your entries in the forum before the contest is over.

See also the General Rules & Guidelines.

How to Enter?

Submit your entry by sending a PM to Staff (a special user that all Staff have access to) with one link or image of your entry. Please do not send an e-mail to any of the admin or staff accounts as this is a sure fire way to have your entry missed.

How will this be judged?

Sometime after December 8th we will post all entries to a new thread and voting can commence!

Good luck everyone!
The Staff

Oh a very nice change in pace for a comp! Great concept with even better prizes, for anyone with the talent to draw Dawi'Zharr to the level of Knight in Flames should defiantly enter... although it will be hard to surpass his amazing art!

Can't wait to see the entries!

I have an idea too.  A Watchtower will have a wall.  So I'll draw a wall....
After that I'm screwed.

I've got an idea for this one - well one of Admirals ideas but with bit of a twist to it - I think it should work when i get to plan it on paper as it will be a little bit technical Happy

Done a sketch I’m moderately happy with, but considering doing a schematic/blueprint of it instead as it has features that might not be clear from the sketch.
