I think 9th may have used the screenshot as reference for main contour lines. But I think that's it. It seems legit to me.As experienced artists, what do you think about 9th and 10th place credibility?
@Rahnaix @Hana @Jessica Baker @Laika @theleyline
Feedback is appreciated.
I have this related to 9th ,do not have relevant screenshot to compare to last entry.
Some players were disqualified on time based on these.
Will see, as mentioned he is required to provide proof. If there weren't that many similarities it would not be in question.I think 9th may have used the screenshot as reference for main contour lines. But I think that's it. It seems legit to me.
On the other hand, as everyone is saying, 10th looks like an edited screenshot.
PS: Thanks for thinking I am an experienced artist (I am not), I'm flattered <3
I started to sketch foreground foliage and a bonfire with trout being roasted. On the water, there was going to be a clipper with its sails rolled up with one of the small islands near Freedich in the distance. And I wanted to draw the sky being a bit starry, but... When I started actually coloring it... I was like "nope"
Was not late, since we are lacking 1 more reply.hey, if possible and its not late, can the rewards be sent out to IGN: ''Ole' plz ?
Im guessing it could be sent today in majority and to Naka, later on.
I knew I saw that piece somewhere before. That was an old loading screen. It was something like the second or third update when it appeared. I did the same thing by making a screen capture of it too when I first saw it. I just can't remember which version it came from. If you notice that the land is really close to the bottom. Below that was where the loading information and tool tip got cut out.7th: really good use of copy-pasted wings found on google on an angled owl screenshot, but you could of at least put some more effort into the background instead of a straight copy-pasta you know?
I've provided my Photoshop file that I used. I don't have like a 'sketch' per say because 95% of the time I use brushes to draw. If you were wondering how I made my trees I took inspiration from these two sources:
Yeah I admit I nearly traced the dragon from a different angle, should have made it look a bit different from being so similar to the reference.the dragon is edited
Sorry that I'm not a 'good' or 'experienced' artist but I draw for my own enjoyment. In my opinion, I like the contrast between the light and dark silhouette of the trees.no good or experienced artist will have such contrast in their piece, with lack of foreground-main focus- background distinction, too much black used = clearly fake
Take a look at the deviantart links I sent, they have a very similar process to how I make my foliage.as well as its very easy to notice its a screenshot edit from the trees
Please look over my files!I would suggest you ask him to send a compressed file of whatever program he used (example being his Photoshop files). If you do not have Photoshop, I will gladly view the files for you to confirm its validity
I am sorry, but as mentioned, if you can provide us with the sketch, half-finished artwork, or non-filtered piece, than that is considered.I've provided my Photoshop file that I used.

The rocks were done with the help of pictures of real rocks.
When I draw I usually edit on one layer only so unfortunately I only have a fraction of my changes of what I used to plan out my drawing in the beginning.

Anyway it was a fun contest to do and next time (hopefully) I'll make sure to do something completely original to avoid all of this confusion lol.
Crap forgot to actually give you the link for the Photoshop file ahahahaI am sorry, but as mentioned, if you can provide us with the sketch, half-finished artwork, or non-filtered piece, than that is considered.
Samples that anyone could had found in a matter of few minutes not enough.
I spent tons of days on mine , i used the screenshot for selections and i painted over it myself using the screenshot only as a guide. Where was all this concern weeks ago when i initially posted it and have been constantly editing and uploading revisions to it the entire last month. i wasn't aware the use of photoshop's filters over painted layers was against the rules. The bottom left was easy to paint because of its high contrast and limited colors. Whatever, it was fun none the less but it would of been great not to have the witchhunt and so much salt at the end. @RyuzakiSome of the winners are literally screenshots of the game with a random filter or slight editing, good contest lmao
10th place -Anon87

literally a screenshot of ynystere CR spawning in with a bad red filter and archerage bottom left
9th place num num my tum also a screenshot edit, a decent looking one, but still a screenshot edit
Admins too busy spawning in gold for players to buy and banning people who scam them
your screenshot doesn't even come close to the same perspective as my picture. And i'm sorry i wasn't aware the picture being similar to the guide screenshot was against the rules. My job is in actual game development so a hand drawn reproduction of a screenshot while using it as a guide is child's play. GG... i expected to not get much out of this but what i didn't expect was so much bile being spewed directly at my artwork. You would think humanity would have evolved mentally from the age of when the salem witch trials took place. Shame @Gloopey @Jessica Baker @Hana @Eelvie . However, i applaud all the effort everyone put in and i hope you all continue your journey in creating more art for the masses.
@Ryuzaki I recreated the Ynystere Cinderstone image in question. It was done by producing different layers with pin light filters, the glowing edge option from filter gallery, and adding a red color filter. I can provide the photoshop file for you to look if necessary. I used some Crimson Rift image I found online as well as @Gloopey 's gyazo image
