Tre'bivdil Stained Glass Contest

Postby Branan » Tue Sep 11, 2012 2:13 pm

We are pleased to announce the Tre'bivdil stained glass contest!

Submissions will be accepted starting immediately until Midnight October 31st, US Pacific time. This is approximately seven weeks. E-mail your submission to contest@guildofwriters.org. The winning pattern(s) will be added to the Gehn Shard in neighborhoods which feature Tre'bivdil.

Submission Requirements

Each submission must consist of two 256x256 or larger texture images:
  • A full-color image of the stained glass
  • A greyscale image representing the reflection

These images must be submitted in a lossless format. If you are unsure which format to use, you should select PNG.

Concept drawings will not be accepted. Your images must be usable in-game in the format they are submitted.

Judging

Submissions will be judged by a panel consisting of Branan, Hoikas, and Deledrius (the Gehn Shard admins). The judges may, at their discretion, solicit opinions from other individuals unless such individuals have entered the contest.

Up to three winning patterns will be selected, and will be used randomly in hoods just like the current stained glass patterns.

Hints

If you are unsure how to best create the reflection image: start with an image consisting of white where the glass is, and black where the frame/border elements are. You can then adjust this with grey areas for dirt/grime as needed to match your glass art.

Please ask for help in the appropriate forum areas so that this post can be kept for discussion.

Oh good, I'm about to go on holiday so that gives me plenty of time to work on something.

256x256 seems awfully small though.

256x256 matches what's there for the other ages, I believe. We can certainly accept higher-res images. I'll update the post to specify that as a minimum size.

Ok , here is a simple stained glass idea.

I call it " trebivdil meets mondriaan."

I cutted out a mondriaan painting and replaced them with elements from trebivdil.

The simplicity of the blocks in the original mondriaan painting are as brilliant as the simplicity of the age trebivdil and both keeps fascinating.

I hope to have catched that feeling in this stained Glass.

If wanted i have a png available, where the glass has transparency accept the iron frames .

Agreed, it's an interesting and nice idea to combine the mandriaan style with Tre'bivdil, dendwaler,
I wonder how that would look with a more elliptic shape instead of a huge rectangle, though ... :P

I can't wait to see Tweek's submission either ... :)
