Whenever we have a contest, it will be here! =D Good luck! Users may also hold their own 'Evelon-related' contests here as well in the sub forum, but remember that you can only give away things that you rightfully own!

D'awww!

That's right guys! What you've all been waiting for! With Evelon on the precipice of releasing a new breedable, it seems we're going to be needing a plethora of new markings! That's where you come in, so grab your MSPaint, Photoshop, GIMP, or even just colored pencils and help us create some pretty new markings for the site!

~*Rules:*~

* Soveris will come with Body Markings, Wing Markings and Minimarkings (so there's three categories). You may design up to fifteen different entries and submit them (it doesn't matter if you choose to do more markings than minimarks, and vice versa)! Whoo!

* One post per person. You may edit your posts until the end date.

* You MUST post a picture or a link, written entries will not be accepted. You may use the provided line arts or one of your own. If the image is too large for the forums (max 600 width), please link the image.

* You may name the markings, but the names may not remain the same if your entry is chosen.


~*Available Files:*~

Here, take these! It's dangerous to go alone! Just save them to your computer and draw away!


Flat Blank Line Art
Flat Shaded Line Art
Photoshop Blank Line Art (Download Link)

~*What We're Looking For:*~

Anything and everything! There's no limit to what you do! Design this pet after dogs, cats, fish, you name it. Draw inspiration from ancient art and architecture, take a look at patterns in the sky, check out the grain in wood. Anything goes! We'll be judging based on creativity, neatness of the design, and the overall need for the marking/minimark in comparison with the other markings we will have.

There is also a small disclaimer here. As the contest carries on, Baal will also be working hard to create markings and minimarks. I won't be checking here everyday, so any and all similarities to contestants' entries are purely coincidental. Try to avoid more simple markings, those based on birds, and already pre-existing markings used on our other Breedable if you feel that I might accidentally recreate the same marking/minimarking and not give you credit. Again, it will all be purely coincidental!


~*Prizes:*~

* First Place - An IOU for a new Soveris custom with your new marking! (Please note that it may take some time to release the actual breedable, so there will be some wait involved.) You will also receive your choice of Clinic Pet OR Mysterious Egg.

* Second Place - 750 KS and free Lucain OR Paragon custom (plus one extra minimark)

* Third Place - 500 KS and Random Diosol OR Mysterious Egg

* Fourth Place - 250 KS and Choice of Retired Pet OR Random Diosol

End Date:

May 19th, 2013 (Sunday) - The last day to submit answers.

This is an official guide for marking making, which has been verified by Baal herself. Marking types may not overlap either. That is, your wing marking can't cover an area that is colored as where a body marking would go and the opposite. Markings also don't cover the areas indicated by the black. I don't think yours will be disqualified if they don't follow this guide, but for future marking making it would be good to keep this in mind.




Color key: All body/mini markings will be in gold. The brown-orange was where I thought body markings could cover. The brown is where I thought wing markings could cover, with all wing markings shown in a sort of reddish-orange. Areas where markings are believed to be unable to color are shown in black. All of my entries will follow this style. Also, all images link to a full sized version if clicked

Image

I've called this one Coverts for now. I'm sure pretty much everyone will think of this, so I suppose this entry is more expressing my interest in having a marking that we can use to color the entire wing, rather than just the tips. This is with the assumption that that isn't already something we can do, since it looked like markings extended on that part of the wings in one of the examples.

Image

For the time being, this one is called Fawn. As the name implies, it's supposed to be based on young deer, though I don't think I've done a particularly good job of displaying it. Basically spotting is limited to the back/sides (not the belly) with some spotting on the upper legs, and many of the spots seem to run somewhat in line with one another.

Image

Eye of Ra/Horus. I mean... come on. This is obviously something we need. It's kinda... hard to draw with so little space on the face though. xD; But I'm sure you could do it better than me. C=

Image

Placeholder name of Primaries. The primaries are those first 9-10 outer long flight feathers. As seen in the green cheeked conure, they can sometimes be colored differently.

Image

Those are supposed to look like scales. xD; I kinda gave up for now. If you can make it work without using two colors, that would be awesome. But. I couldn't. Though the secondary color could be shading instead, but that'd probably be more effort than it's worth. But I like the idea, and it kinda makes me think of a kirin? o 3o That and armor. Probably going to edit it with more scales along the back of the neck and tail later.

Image

Temp named Racer. It was originally going to only be the one thick line that goes along the back and hind leg.... and then I went crazy. xD;

Image

This one was made to go with Racer, and has been temp named Track. It's baaasically the same marking, but without the cuts in it. This allows for the two together to make this:

Whoops~! Sorry guys, I made a small addendum to the rules since Draiz's post reminded me. XD

There's technically THREE categories that markings fall in. Body Markings, Minimarks, and Wing Markings! Wing Markings can also extend to the head feathers for unity. If anyone is confused by this, any marking that falls on the outer flight feathers (or the last row of feathers on the Soveris's limbs) counts as a Wing Marking (as indicated above).

There will probably be more, but here's what I've got so far. Plus some of the inspiration/reasons behind them :U

MARKINGS:
Cropcircle: This was actually based on a cropcircle Lucain marking I made for one of our previous contests. While not inspired by technology, Kyrit pointed out that it could work well for technology oriented characters as well, and we don't really have any markings for those yet.
Nebulous: Based on clouds, though I think it's pretty similar to Celestial. Just minus the stars.
Pronghorn: Pronghorns have pretty interesting markings on their neck/face. I'm a little uncertain about the white spot on the rump. That could be filled in, but I decided to stick with what pronghorns actually look like.
Haze: Inspired by, of course, haze/fog/whatnot. I thought it would be neat to have a marking that divides the body horizontally as opposed to vertically, like Split does.
Melange: As the name implies, this is intended to have many different patterns in one marking, going from solid at the head, to stripes, and then to swirls and spots. We don't have markings that transition like this, so I thought it would be unique ovo
Fringe: I just wanted something nice and jagged c:
Decay: Supposed to be reminiscent of decaying leaves.
Crane: Maybe this could even be a minimark? At any rate, pretty obvious what this is based off of. Sorry that it's a bird :< The only part that people would be able to pick the color for is the red cap.
Turtle Shell: Because turtle shell patterns are cool : D In terms of color, the ring colors could either be just a darker version of the marking color or a whole other color entirely.

MINIMARKS:
Humming Throat: Again, sorry that it's bird based, but I thought this would be something you wouldn't think of? We don't have hummingbirds on Evelon :C
Legstreak: Somewhat inspired by red winged blackbirds. Basically a "utility" marking.

WING MARKINGS:
Blazewing: Fire patterns on wings could look cool. Though I'm sure you can draw it a lot better than I can xD
Fleur de Lys: ...ok, I'm apparently terrible at drawing the Fleur-de-Lys too : | But I hope this conveys the point LOL.

Markings

Puma: cuz. Mountain Lion. :B

Image

SiamTabby: probably gonna take this down cuz other people have submitted better markings that will have the same effect.
Image

Vest: Supposed to be long in the back (aka down the tail) like a swallowtail vest.
Image

Hood: Long in the back, so dorsal view would show the hood laying on top of the vest.
Image

Genet: not very happy with my representation, but a genet. :|
Image

Mini markings

Coatamundi: cuz. Lookit dat face. .D.

Oh, turn the lights, turn the lights down low

[These were all made before that chart with the areas that can't have markings was up, and I foolishly deleted the PSDs.]
Markings

Schism
The flank doesn't quite match the rest because I had an effect in mind when I started and then...sort of got carried away. Heh.
Image
Line
Image
Splatter
Could also be a minimark, I wasn't sure.

Minimarks
Image
Thylacine
Though I guess on a thylacine the stripes would go further up the spine.


Possibly more to come.

More to come for certain, but just marking my spot here as well~

Marking 1: Tapir
Image

Or more like a baby Tapir, I have always loved the way these animals look as babies because their markings are just adorable. I could see this marking looking good against a black base too.

Marking 2: Half Body
Image

Marking 3: Mystic
Image

Marking 4: Zebra Dun
Image
Based on a horse marking (Dun gene) This could also be a minimark if you minus the back stripe out, maybe.

Marking 5: Tendril
Image
Tentacles, Tendrils!

Marking 6: Piebald
Image

Marking 7: Quantum
Image

Marking 8: Tribal
Image

Marking 9: Muddy
Image

Wing Marking 1: Wing Section
Image

Wing Marking 2: Illusionary

So, I totally haven't been working on this instead of studying for finals...>.> Curse you for making this contest now, Baal! Jk, I love you, and it's actually been a nice break from work.

Entry #1
Name: Tyto alba (or Barn Owl) - Marking
Now, I know we were supposed to avoid doing birds, but this one was nagging at me all day, so I had to sketch it up. The little eye marking and the speckles are optional, and are welcome to be used as separate (mini-)markings, if so desired.
Image

Entry #2
Name: Zen (or Balance) - Minimark (methinks)
Image

Entry #3
Name: Bloodthirsty - Marking (or minimark)
So, the legs are optional or editable to make it a marking, or each part could be taken separately and used as a minimark. Beak markings are also optional.
Image

Entry #4
Name: Dual-Tone - Wing Marking
Image

Entry #5
Name: Eye spots - Wing Marking
Image

Entry #6
Name: Corn Snake - Marking
Image

Entry #7
Name: Tribal - Marking
Image


Entry #8
Name: King Cheetah - Marking
Image

But anywho, with some luck, hopefully finals won't kill me, and there will be more examples up soon! ^^

I love adventurous tales like that. That uplifting feeling that comes from seeing unknown lands and the knowledge that you came across—nothing can replace it! It opens a path from which self-confidence, experience, and important friendships—from the sharing of life or death situations—are born! But hearing it just isn’t the same. I want to create my own magnificent story!



A great adventure!

I made stuff. :U They looked a lot cleaner smaller, but I can't get the lineart to line up when I shrink it. Maybe I just suck. I dunno.

Marking - Skeletal
Image
Simplified skeleton design, simple as that. I drew a pelvis, which is hard, so it was totally worth it.

Marking - Magi
Image
I wanted a kind of "magic" feel without being a copy of the Ancient marking.

Marking - Dagged
Image
Loosely based on the caparisons of jousting horses. Dagging is common on Rennesiance clothing, mainly bottom hems and sleeves. Tabard is another possible name.

Marking - Poison
Image
Based on a Poison Dart Frog.

Wing Marking - Ashwing
Image
Meant to be a translucent smoke effect with opaque flecks of ash in the same color.

Wing Marking - Peacock
Image
I know you said no birds, but this is something I would really like to see. My ref is crap. Wing eyespots would be wonderful, though.

Mini(?)mark - Leg Stripe
Image
It's actually an Okapi marking without the face part. Also, I'm not sure if this would be a marking or minimark, since in my mine it covers about as much body surface area as Banded on the Lucain.

At the barricades of freedom.
When our ranks begin to form
Will you take your place with me?

The time is now, the day is here!

One day to a new beginning
Every man will be a king
There's a new world for the winning

Do you hear the people sing?

Tomorrow we'll discover
What our God in Heaven has in store!

Trololo.

Hey, the rules just say I need A picture, not that it has to be YOUR picture. :P
