Splinterlands Art Contest! // Week 163 // 10 Booster Pack Prize!

Splintertalk NFT Opportunity

We've been releasing official Splinterlands NFTs on Splintertalk and now we want to give the opportunity for our Art Contest Winners to tokenize their art and market it to our audience! This will empower artists to mint their own fan art as a Splinterlands approved NFT on Splintertalk while getting credit, growing their own brand, and sharing in the profits!

We'll be keeping an eye out for high-quality pieces in the weekly art contest and will be working to empower the artists in our community to expand their reach, grow their brand, and stack up some SPT for making consistently awesome art!

Selected artists will have the opportunity to mint their NFT art on our new account, Splinterchampions, which is the new official Splinterlands account for our Art contest winner's NFTs and then we'll use our reach and social marketing teams to spotlight these users and help them grow!

Follow us on Instagram

Each week's first-place winner will also have their art featured on the official Splinterlands Instagram account.

I'm usually hyped seeing other fanarts... yet I didn't know that blatant tracing is allowed.
Or is this another ad for League of Legends Netflix special Arcane series?

Apparently submitting fanart of other games is also allowed.
Call me salty, but if you list rules for entry, you should enforce them, why are you awarding scammers?

Which entry are you talking about? There were many better entries too, but they have some other criteria I guess...

For the first part - 6th entry is traced off a Featherknight from League of Legends/Teamfight tactics.
And the 7th entry is Ralsei from Deltarune... I have no idea how anyone could mistake that for a Venari Seedsmith.
People who choose winners must care so little for Splinterlands if they can't even read the character design's main features.

Oh yeah, now I see. Also, I don't think some of them deserved to be in the top 3, or even top 7. How does an entry that took 30min to make (and in my opinion looks crappy) did win with those that took probably a couple hours of effort?

Mashups aren't against the rules. You have made some firm but fair observations and your concerns will be duly noted and considered going forward selecting the winners.

Hello ! Here's my entry for week 163.
I tried to imagine a somewhat realistic version of a Molten Ogre while it's attacking :)

I am grateful, of course I am, but this is no longer a contest, among the winners you see, the arts of the last place are better than the first, I have already seen it every several weeks, and I am not despising anyone's art , because I know that everyone who strives to make good art, but it is not possible that those who try harder, have last places. Anyway, I thank you because without these draws I would not be where I am in the game that I like a lot, but when you participate and you see that the winners are not arts that exceed yours or at least are at the same level. , so you are disappointed and it is not worth the effort, I will continue with my good artistic content in Splinterlands, but I never enter sweepstakes, because I am not lucky for that. Thanks.

I completely agree with you.
It's something that I have been considering myself too - I want to continue to create fanart, but not for the contest. Just as you said here, often times, lower places seem to be more professionally done than the main winners.
And as I brought up in my other comment, there's even a fanart of another game (Deltarune) in this week's selection.

As a co-artist I am sad to read this. I know how you feel buddy, you work hard for your art and its very sad you end up feeling this way. This is supposed to be a fun contest for me at least, but I think its not fun for everyone. Still keep it up! Cheer up and keep the passion. I am also grateful there is a contest like this, the held the contest they choose the winners and that is how it is.

As an artist i understand your disappointment and frustrations. However, to suggest changing the name and to be bitter enough to downvote etc. seems to lack the community aspect of what this is all about. I have recently been brought on to curate for this contest and to help judge the contest for winner selections. I am an artist and my perspective will factor in all the issues that you and many others have raised. So, for me, i am coming in a bit late in the party here for this art contest.

I can say that the generosity of just the curation alone is worth participating. Most people i have seen here would definitely not have the rewards for their posts without the curation they get just for participating.

I haven't been part of the winner selection process until now and making sure quality art is at the top of the selections is something i see as a privilege and an honor. I can't participate for curation or to win packs because i am sacrificing that opportunity to help the community.

Art can be subjective and who should win will always be contested by those who value and appreciate art differently. I have loved your art entries but i think your attitude isn't the best as far as community is concerned. With the presale there have been a lot of people super busy and spread thing to try and make everything the best it can be. When you have many hats to wear it can be difficult to keep things going as smooth as possible. That is the only reason i was brought on. I spend my own voting power just to reward the comments here... i barely even see many artists supporting artists and it makes me sad.

Too many people feel entitled around here. If at first you don't succeed try try again is the old saying. You have succeeded many times and had some pretty amazing curation upvotes.

To complain rather than support is ungrateful in my humble opinion. You don't have to agree with the selected winners and you don't have to support the artists that you don't value their art... to offer your support. But it's wrong to disrespect people who work hard to give back to the community, in particular the nice people that have been doing over 150 art contests. I haven't always agreed with the winners... but that didn't stop me from curating and giving back to the community.

I would ask... what are you giving back, sacrificing, or doing FOR the community?

The community, the support, nor the other artists have bothered me, not even your scolding, on the contrary, and as I said before, I complain and get angry because a contest values ​​the best, and it is not what they do, I am not saying that they Winners are bad, even two of them are much better in quality when it comes to buying my work.
You are right on the point, when you say that sometimes you disagree with those who select as winners, my negative vote is for it. I always give 100% of my vote to the publications and the repost, but when things are not fair you have to express it and make it known.
In Hive you are allowed to express yourself freely and I do not agree, that is not why I will be blacklisted, right?

Actually, downvoting is for disagreeing with rewards not the content of the post... but it's your stake to do with as you please.

I didn't scold you but just pointed out it's ungrateful and quite rude to state that the name of this community project should be changed just because you don't agree with the outcome.

Much of this contest has been created, run, curated, and the winners selected all by one person. That person does many many many other things for Splinterlands and the Hive community as a whole. To degrade the whole project just because you get upset about how you feel things should be is an insult to all the hard work and support that person has put in to build this.

Now that help is on the way and restructuring and more organization is being implemented to address all the things you are rage quitting over is not very supportive to this project or the community as a whole. So, i get your points and agree to some degree with some of them and then i disagree with your attitude and approach to how you chose to express yourself.

The CONTEST is open for you in the future.. and if you were blacklisted i wouldn't be wasting my precious time to explain all of this to you. If you were blacklisted then you would have been muted in the community and had your curation vote (Which was very large) taken back. So, as i said, best wishes to you moving on and moving forward.

It's just sad that more empathy, understanding, and compassion isn't considered to be put forth and afforded towards those that work really hard to offer these opportunities. But i guess everyone is a critic...

I understand your position and appreciate your time and support for the community, I really do.
But never at any time insult anyone, And what I am saying is because it is the truth, it is not an insult, this is pure and simple support for the community, but that does not mean that what I say is true.
And I continue to support them, I already removed the negative vote, but the way they choose the winners, makes me feel that my work is very bad, and that is not healthy for me, I am not ungrateful at all, it just is what it is, and what I feel.
And I am not saying that they change the name of the community, only that of the interaction with the weekly art.
"weekly art raffle" and curation for the most robust works as they have done.
I am very grateful to be heard as well.

I hear you, man. I think your art is fantastic. The curation you have received should encourage the fact that your art is good. You have won before as well.

Not winning a contest can be a motivating force to keep on keeping on... or you can choose to be discouraged by it and do what you will based on that negativity.

It's healthy to look at the big picture overall and stay optimistic. Anyone can help encourage and/or constructively criticize or express concerns but it's often the way we go about it that can turn things sour.

This conversation is over and I don't need a response, but I would like to point out that just because someone's art is better does not mean that they tried harder. No one can determine how hard each person tried on their art just because of the way it looks

@fortheloveofsl You have a bit of reason, but if someone can do great in a short time, it is because they have a lot of practice or experience, then that person has worked hard to reach that level.
It's not my case XD

@fortheloveofsl Do not insult anyone, I respect everyone's work, and I already said it several times, I am answering you in a very polite way, I will not disrespect you for the fact that you do it, the fact that someone does work of quality in a short time is because I spend many hours of work to reach the level it has, I have not reached that yet, it takes me even more than 30 hours working to make an art for the contests. good luck.
