    Default Towerpedia! Art Contest

    As many of you know, not every person, place or thing in the Dark Tower series has artwork available for it. Since I like having artwork in the Towerpedia! articles, I've come up with a little plan that will hopefully get the artwork I need as well as provide you all with a little fun and a chance to show off your artistic skills.

    We are going to have art contests based on what artwork I'm looking for. I will start a separate thread for each piece of artwork I am commissioning, and members can submit their artwork to that thread. I will keep the thread open for a minimum of two weeks, but if you see the deadline is approaching and need more time, PM or email me at daghain@thedarktower.org and I'll extend it up to two more. When the submission deadline is reached, members will be allowed to vote on their favorite submission, which will then be placed in the appropriate article in Towerpedia! for a minimum of one month, with a credit to the artist on that page. In addition, the winner of each contest will receive a cool silicone bracelet in black with "Hile, Gunslinger" on one side and "www.thedarktower.org" on the other. You'll have to PM me your address, but I promise to keep it top secret, AND I'll pay the postage. What could be better?


    Please read the guidelines before posting, and have fun!

    Well, I was hoping Matty would get the new wiki in place first, but I don't see that happening anytime soon. I'll take a look and see if I can get something started in a couple weeks - I'm traveling off and on until about mid-May and my Internet access is going to be minimal.

    The threads are around here, but most of the art has been removed long ago (broken links, artist withdraw etc.).

    Wow, that looks amazing!

    Could be that you don't have 5 posts yet, which I believe you need to post images. Or possibly posting to the page, but not just the image?

    We all float down here
