  • Where do we put the completed image once it's made? How do we "participate in a community"? What are the communities? I am sorry if these seem like obvious things, but I am new to this forum.

  • Community = Domain

    You post your image in this thread

    Yes you draw it and scan it in if you wish

    Live for ourselves not for showing that to others…

    Overrate to your behavior more that your prestige, because behaviors are the sign of your facts but prestige is what others thought about you.

  • Woah, then you spend hours in paint to findout you guys have photoshop :-o Nice uploads, so far, hope mine is even taken intro considerations :-)

    And then I dont even do it right and have to do it all over... Wrong placement of logo.. Iam not allowed to edit my post I so do the right one here, sorry for multi-posting.

    - Not to be all negative, nice event :-D

  • Hey Folks

    Some excellent submissions made this very difficult to judge.

    We of course had to do some image checking ourselves to look up copyright etc which was also useful in helping us spot those images taken straight from the internet and posted here with just minor edits.

    Judging was done by myself with some assistance from the mod team.

    As stated everyone gets 10 gold – just for posting. If you did not give your server details please send me a PM with the location you wish to receive your gold (must be on a UK server)

    In first place receiving 150 gold is:

    Travian UK6
    Account: Olyfurious

    It was a difficult choice but I loved the simplicity of this one paired with sharp contrast of the main image against the hazy background.
    Some effort had also been made to blend the travian log and text.

    Overall a very good professional looking image

    In Second place receiving 50 gold is:

    We loved the autumn colours on this one as well as the imagination used to make the soldiers fit into the Halloween theme. The logo placement seemed a little out of place, compared to the other editing work it appeared more of an after thought.This was a very close second place

    In Third place receiving 50 gold is:

    Decided to make a second one because I was bored.

    Server: ts6.travian.co.uk
    In game name: HellHunt

    Another good entry. This one made it to third place based on the majority of the image being taken directly from the internet and only minor edits being made to fit the theme. The blending around the hood was not quite as crisp as the previous entry's but over all an excellent effort
