  • This is the official entry thread for the 2021 Ashes of Creation Glorious Gourd Contest - share your submitted creations here! Please be sure to review the full entry instructions here first, and check out the additional helpful links below:

    Full Contest Rules

    Digital Entry - Glorious Gourd Template

    To embed an image in your forum reply for submission, first upload it to an external image hosting site, and copy the direct image link (ex. website.com/yourimage.jpg). Typically you can get the direct image link by right clicking on the image and selecting “copy image address”. Then, click the photo icon in the forum formatting bar and paste your link - it will automatically insert the image for you. Alternatively, you can embed your image directly using BBCode, like so:
    [img]website.com/yourimage.jpg[/img]
    

    Be sure your submission complies with our full Contest rules! For physical submissions, you must only include one image for your submission to be valid - if you’d like to show off multiple angles of your creation, please submit them combined into one image. You may use multiple pumpkins in your submission, as long as they are part of one cohesive theme, and all contained in one submission image.

    For digital submissions, you must use the digital template provided in its original, unaltered format in order for your digital submission to be valid. You may color inside and/or outside the lines however you wish, but do not alter the lines or color on them in any way.

    What do you mean no changing the lines

    What do you mean no changing the lines

    This refers to the outlines of the pumpkin (digital entry). You can color inside the pumpkin and/or outside of it, but you may not color/change the outlines.

    What do you mean no changing the lines

    To be 100% clear: For digital entries, ALL of the template must be visible, and not be modified in ANY way. You can't hide the lines, you can't color the lines, you can't change where the lines are, you can't change the layout/size of the template. Just draw under/around the lines.

    I highly doubt that image is ok, the creases on the pumpkin are not visible, neither is the stem.

    With the okay pumpkins under the validation pumpkins for the digital template. There are two of them that look like the shadow is altered in a way to make the pumpkin look more real. I'm confused on that part.

    For both of the valid pumpkins, all of the lines in the template are completely intact and unchanged from their original version. In both cases, the shadow was created by adding extra color around the base of the pumpkin, without changing the lines in any way at all (the shadow was not part of the original template - it was added by each artist as part of their creation). As you'll notice on both, the lines have not been colored on or altered in any way directly. Hope that helps clarify things a bit further! <3

  • I Read the submission rules and it said we had till October 25th at 11pm PDT. I went to submit my carved pumpkin tonight at 10:31pm EST on Monday October 25, but it said the submissions were closed. Did they stop the submissions early?
  • edited October 26
    Opp lol read that wrong I guess. Just saw that it says 11am. Well, rest in peace! I know it won't count towards the contest, but I figured I'd let you guys see another fan of the game's carving having to do with your game! Happy Halloween Month!!
