    What happened to the Art Crusades?

    Anyone remember this activity? What happened to this epic social gathering where one once battled against eachother over a map of a fatasy landscape after picking the dark or the light side? Or what about the Headhunters Guild where members dueled to the death and took the others head? At some point it all just stopped and I never saw any notification on why it stopped, just curious on what happened, and if it could return sometime in the future (which I hope).


    For those who don't know about the Art Crusades, it was sorta a challenge and collaboration activity here on conceptart.org where members signed up on either light or dark side. Then one of the leaders (Alti usually) came up with a topic where some kind of battle was to be depictured, ad the side which got most votes in the poll won one placement on a map that Alti had created over the fantasy world it all took place in, and they got awesome loot.

    And the fun side-battle thing where members dueled over eachothers heads and loot won in the art crusade, was hellishly fun.

    Haha awesome. I remeber at some point after a lengthy visually charged D&D sessions me and my friend duked it out panel by panel. And it easily ranged from a sword duel to a dark wizzard rolling over the forrests in a giant metal wheel chasing me.

    I think ongoing situation based art is damn big sourse of inspiration

    I joined after it puttered out, but I remember one of the people that was running it mentioned a new iteration of it was in the works or something to that effect. It seems like after a certain date, though, that everyone involved completely forgot about it or something.

    Alti and I got rather busy with other things. It was a really fun Idea though. might be worth resurecting... in the meantime you all could hone your skills in the weelkly and daily activities, or just challenge each other for fun.... I would be happy to supervise as master of the lists or something. there is a whole section of the forum set up for these activities.

    Keep drawing, more fun things to come!
