As the title implies this is a competition I'm having. The competition tests the artists creativity to pretty much create an image out of nothing. Here's how it works. I put up a description of something that I want drawn. I give as many details as i can possibly give. After the idea is postes, artists are to create pictures of what they think the description would turn out as. The winner will be selected based on what I see to be the closest match to the description. If you please you may add extra details beyond what I described so long as the original description is not changed in the process. This competition if for FUN. The reward is simply that your art WILL be recognized as good. I applaude any and all who attempt this challenge. It is greatly appreciated and should be fun for everyone. Now I shall give you the first description of the competition. (Note: I will be extremely detailed, also WHAT the description is...uhhh....describing can vary from characters, creatures, locations, etc.)
DESCRIPTION #1 :
Height: 5"8 (Tall for people who can't make an exact measured person)
Weapon of Choice: Curve-Meld (Cursed Sword)
Weapon Description: A pitch black sword and (as the name implies) is slightly curved as it progresses from the hilt to the tip. (I MEAN SLIGHTLY!) The sword is said to kill an innocent by a magical...misfortune AS WELL as its marked target. You are welcome to decorate the sword with as much detail as you like. The sword has a slight red tint along the edges.
Character Description: Long black hair, Grey Eyes, Is somewhat tanned (from constantly fishing in his childehood), Clothe choices lean toward blue and black mixes.
If you need MORE details just ask but be sure to specify WHERE I need more details at.
(All submissions should be drawn in a "Final Fantasy" esque style.)
I hope you enjoy this competition. I can't wait to see what you guys can pull out of your hats!
Please note that by reading this post you sign a contract to not use this idea outside this topic without my permission...and likewise, I may not use your ideas without your permission. Thus, It is an even trade.
(Also, I couldn't figure out where to put this type of thread. If its not in the right place right now...please point me where I SHOULD post it. Thank your for your cooperation and understanding.)

well...that sounds like a ton of fun....for you
5 hours in m$paint, 25 hours in photoshop 4 color,, my bestest pic yet!!!111
what a wast of time. So in a nutshell you want people to do your art for you cause your too lazy, dont have the cash to hire artists or just want a personal collection.
Oh and btw for future refernce, reading a publicly available document, is not a binding contract. And to be dead honest, this isnt really that creative, so not only will you probably get no entries but i dont think your in danger of anyone stealing your ideas.
...yikes.The reward is simply that your art WILL be recognized as good.
So...I'll make a stab at being constructive. This is not the place for these kinds of self-gratifying contests. Most of the users are used to being paid for artwork, and the forum already has a running character "contest," with no ulterior motive like getting artists to draw your characters so you can have a bunch of fanart.
Try Deviantart, Mangaworkshop, Elfwood, ArtWanted, MAG, MOB....etc. I know some of those sites actually have those kinds of contests, and MAG&MOB are monthlies where the winning artist gets to post their character for others to draw.
(edited, don't want to be that mean )

Great catch on the copyright, guys! Wouldn't want my masterpiece used by illicit businesses. For free.
Slash,Thunder Doom, great work! But like Craig D says, where's the ? That's like, -10 points on the kuwai scale!
Wow! What a great idea! I wish we had some sort of weekly activity where we could draw a charater! and maybe the same for enviros and creatures and industrial designs!
* Help a CA artist! Visit the Constructive Critique section! *
No, Interceptor, that would actually require a person to look through the forums before posting. It doesn't work that way!
