Both pictures are fantastic but I have to go with what will look the best in the Horn of Eld entry in Towerpedia.

Yeah, ditto what Monte said.
And for me, that's Heather's - simple and elegant.
Just how I imagine it.

I hope this doesn't break any rules or change anyones mind of who they are going to vote for. I thought Heather's image was strong but due to her camera's limitations and or not having the correct software to clean up a hand drawn image for the web that I would do it for her. I figure if an image is going to be on the site and be represented in the wiki the very least I could do is give it the best possible presentation possible.

All I did was nudge the contrast up a bit to show the details of the horn and dropped out the muddy uneven background so you could see the image better.

Disclaimer. Heather had nothing to do with this.

I voted Heather, because ..I like the computer generated look that Arora acchieved, but not as much as the hand drawn magic that was given
by Heather 19. Everyones work was very good, you are all
blessed to have such talent the work was simply beautiful !!

both are great entries, and both artists should be very proud. i picked heather's the first time around, and am sticking by that choice. simplicity in art goes a long way for me.

I knew I would choose hers even before I saw the version presented by boehmke. The "original" is in some way even better - it has that weird ethereal look - but it's precisely that ethereal look that somehow prevented me from accepting that horn wholeheartedly (as a battlehorn). Now, thanks to boehmke, I see that it is exactly what it should be!

03-31-2008, 06:19 AM
Yeah, I'm sticking with my original choice of Bob's.

03-31-2008, 07:08 AM
both pictures are so cool. Best of luck :)

I do have a scanned version of it which might look a bit better, however I didn't finish the drawing till the last min so I didn't get a chance to put it up before the contest started. I was holding off on it till the contest was over, I didn't want to post anything with it still going on.

03-31-2008, 08:21 AM
I voted for Heather if it makes a difference to anyone!!!

I have something MUCH better coming, but for Towerpedia Heathers is the way to go. Great work Heather!

We'll be having some more contests soon, aurora - I hope you'll do something for some of those, too!

03-31-2008, 10:07 AM
No one voted for Bob's obviously superior work?

03-31-2008, 10:33 AM
Guess not.

03-31-2008, 11:03 AM
Pff! No taste. Who is Bob anyway?

03-31-2008, 12:03 PM
My boss. Dur.

Congrats Heather.

Aurora, yours is amazing also, and I hope you don't take this badly. But many will enter, only one can win. :(

Thanks guys, and Congrats to Aurora as well, that was a great picture you did.

And in case anyone's interested here's a clearer version that I have, sorry I wasn't able to scan it in time for the contest.

First as I said before a major congrats to Heather, even I voted for her!

Aurora, yours is amazing also, and I hope you don't take this badly. But many will enter, only one can win
No frets there my friend. My only regrets is I am so over whelmed with grad school work that I have so little time to actually get nothing done. I do have a MUCH better rendition of this underway but no time to finish working on it. But I promise I'll show it off when I finally get it done.
