The First Brigade Contest - Update(2 weeks to go!)

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 25, 2018, 3:40 AM

  Hello everyone! The time has finally arrived for the First Brigade Contest! An event we would like to host to celebrate the milestone of reaching over 700 watchers on Deviant Art. I hope that it will also be an opportunity to have some fun and show your creativity in the spirit of good-natured competition. 

Update:


  Hello everyone! The contest is nearing its finale! We have 2 more weeks to go. Nearly all the judge seats have been taken and we are all excited to see what the final weeks have in store for us. We have received some amazing entries so far! Many thanks to all those who have decided to take part. Remember, if you are uncertain about the character/s you would like to portray, I'll be happy to help you with that, all you need to do is contact me. Don't forget that the Brigade gallery is being constantly updated with new characters. We accept all media, as long as you have fun, follow the rules and show creativity! You can check the contest entries in the link below. 

IMPORTANT : I've spoken with the Brigade members, and we have decided to spice things up even more! To reward ALL who participate in the contest and as a way to thank for the amazing work, we have decided to put up a special prize! In addition to the prizes and the donator giveaway, EVERY contestant whose entry is accepted will receive ONE Brigade 30% Discount token - a tradable unique token that allows you to get a 30% discount with me when you turn the token in. 
 As mentioned, the token can be traded/gifted to your friends, so even if you don't plan on commissioning me, you can still make good use of it :).


The rules
-  The First Brigade Contest begins 25. April 15:00 CET, and will be running for two months
-  The deadline is 25. June 15:00 CET 
-  The deadline might be extended under special circumstances (lack of entries etc.)
2 contest entries per person only, contestant can win only one prize spot (no multiple placements despite 2 contest entries)
-  This contest is focused fully on The Brigade, our mercenary company that roams Azeroth and beyond, and their allies. 
-  The goal is to depict/portray one or more of The Brigade characters at your leisure
  - The available characters that you can depict are in The Brigade folder of my gallery on Deviant art
  galder.deviantart.com/gallery/…
  - there are over 60 characters available right now, most, if not all have detailed descriptions in their respective deviations. 
  - if you are interested in learning more about the characters, all information available will be given to you at your request
  - The Brigade and their allies number in hundreds, if you are interested in learning about/depicting a different character that
  might have been mentioned in the description of one of the pictures, all the relevant information will be made available. 
  For example in the deviation depicting Old gran Malise,  Old Gran Malise by Galder there is mention of at least 4 other Brigade related characters that are all eligible to be depicted as a contest entry.
  -  If you still haven't found the character/s you would like to use for your contest entry, feel free to note/contact me and together
  we can search for a character that would suit you!
-  We appreciate creativity! Writing, cosplay, crafts, drawing, painting, music, wmv edits..all is welcome!
-  Contest entries will be accepted as long as they show effort and creativity. Stick figures would most likely not pass the watchful eyes of our judges anyway. 
-  The Brigade's history is rich on many events, both dark and joyful. Each of the characters has a personal story associated with them, that stretches back up to 5 years and will be made available upon request. To reflect this nature, we do accept grim/mature themed entries, but would like to ask that you avoid unnecessary gore or adult themes (tasteful nudity and romance is welcome). 
- The entries that have been submitted so far are gathered here - The First Brigade Contest - Contest EntriesThe First Brigade Contest - Contest Entries

I love to draw all kinds of art, but predominately focus on fantasy work - large portion of it inspired by World of Warcraft! I'm in love with crystals, gemstones and shinies of all kinds, and over the past few months I've been trying to master painting them digitally.

If you would like to support me - I'm really glad whenever you stop by for a chat, comment, give me a favorite or tell your friends about my work :). If you would like to go further, please feel free to donate some points or buy a print! And if you feel generous, you could always buy me a Ko-fi <3

Stonebuck - Grandidierite variant
Hello everyone! The time is here to take a look at some new shinies. This time I'd like to present a Grandidierite variant of Stonebuck. Grandidierites are an extremely rare sort of gemstones I haven't heard of before I have agreed to work on the Stonebuck project for Yuko--San. They are quite fascinating, and have several  interesting variants, that can range from clear, to murky and finally this kind of lovely textured thingies. Despite being green, I have enjoyed painting this piece just as much as I did with the rest. It was done as a part of the large project Yuko--San commissioned me to work on.

 Stonebucks, a fictional currency made for the original closed species Gemmadites, Gemmismae, Undadites, Geludites and Ignisdites. These five species live on the planet, Ditee-ath, which is located in the galaxy Lapillusavo; millions of light years away from the Milky Way galaxy. Stonebucks are made out of the gemstones that the five Gem species produce out of their bodies, and are taken to the "Bank of Ditee-ath" to get them shaped and stamped. The Stonebucks are used in the species group to buy trait upgrades, mutations and MYO (make your own) slots.

   Stonebucks are obtained through prompts, games and sometimes events. If you want to know more about the five Gem species, Ditee-ath, Ditathee language and alphabet, traditions, beliefs, mythology and take part in prompts, games and events, go check out the group! You don't have to own a character of the species to be a member, or take part in prompts, games and events.

   Gemmadite-Species Gemmadites, Gemmismae, Undadites, Geludites, Ignisdites are original closed species owned and founded by Yuko--San, and co-founded by MintyTomato. You are not allowed to make your own without permission.

Alloragon
    "Hope. That was one thing no one had ever shown for Alloragon. From childhood until until now, she had always found herself getting into trouble one way or another. Her greed, lust for gold and anything of value clouded her judgement and morals. Eventually, she would do unspeakable things to acquire it. One man found her out, catching her in the act of betraying her own faction and people. The scars she has now serve as a reminder of what would come if she were to think of doing anything like that again. It may not be for the right reasons, but the man showed her every day that he still had hope for her. Slowly but surely, Alloragon was rehabilitated. Her lust for gold dwindled and her drive to help those in need grew. She is the reason those that have little now have hope."

    Hello everyone! Today I would like to introduce Alloragon, a very unusual Night elf I had the pleasure of painting for Taluciela94. She has quite some character, and her scars and glowing magical tattoos only reinforce that and set her apart nicely. She was a treat to paint! As you can see, my love for gemstones is slowly being matched by my fondness for portraits. I hope you like the final result!
