Splinterlands Art Contest Week 216!

TOWER DEFENSE ART CONTEST DETAILS:

This week's art contest is specifically to create a spell for the Tower Defense game!

Please find the description of the spell below:

The spell icon must be illustrated and in color.
We provided a sample image below that will help you understand the scope and size of where spells will be placed, and the overall sizes of the spell effect.

Here are the details that we need for the spell.

  1. This Icon will be used on the card.
  2. Make sure the final spell is 3000 x 3000px.
  3. Double Coconut will edit the final art to fit the UI. Do no crop or resize for a small scale on your end.
  4. We have created the name “Heartgiver” based on the function of the spell. Let us know if you have a name that you think would fit better, and we can look at changing it. We can’t guarantee we’ll change the name, but we’re open to ideas based on your art.

Spell details for reference:

  1. Heartgiver (Immediate effect) (Icon)
    Gives the player extra hearts for the battle.

Spell Icon examples:

This is the weekly art contest for Splinterlands fanart and Splinterlands inspired original artwork. We love to see your creations that are inspired by the game and our amazing cards and characters. We have some awesome players and artists in our community and it's inspirational to see the influence of Splinterlands on all the content created for our contests.

We offer the potential for some great curation upvotes from the official Splinterlands account from our diligent curators as well as some wonderful prizes for the selected winners. You don't have to have cards or play the game to participate. You also don't have to be a professional artist to participate! We do try to honor the effort that everyone puts into giving this contest their best try.

Due to some ongoing issues regarding plagiarism and multi-account usage we have recently updated some of our rules and guidelines and being a bit more strict on some of our expectations is necessary.

We encourage everyone to give this contest an opportunity to encourage their own creativity and participation. Here is how to make sure your entry is valid!
Please read our updated terms and conditions of participation in this contest.

Creations which may include, but aren't limited to:

  • Drawings
  • Paintings
  • Digital Art
  • Comics
  • Logos
  • Blog Dividers
  • Blog Footers
  • New Card Ideas
  • Mixed Media Art
  • Sculpture
  • Needlework
  • Dolls
  • Computer Generated Art
  • Cited and Sourced Mashups

Rules for Submission


  • Post your creation on your own Hive account in any community you like - the winning packs will be sent to the account you submit to this contest

  • Entries must be the participants own original art. Plagiarism in any form will not be tolerated. All inspiration or unoriginal source material must be cited and sourced. Using art from any other source than your own original creative process, unless cited and sourced, will result in you being muted in the Splinterlands Community and being excluded from any and all curation or participation in future contests.

  • Creativity will be factored into the possibility of curation or being a winner in the contest. Simply copying or tracing the cards and the exact Splinterland art that already exists will factor into your chances.

  • Please describe what card or character you are using as your inspiration and show some steps of your artistic creative process! If you are making an original character tell us. If you are using a card or character for your art tell us which one.

  • One entry per person or account per Weekly Art Contest. Curation is only available twice per seven days. This includes all other Splinterlands contests. So, drop your entry wisely.

  • Anyone found using more than one account to enter the contest will be muted in the community and banned from all curation and the possibility for participation in future contests.

  • Link your post's URL in the comments of this contest post.

  • Do not embed your link.

  • Include a picture with your link in the comments

  • Upvotes are not guaranteed and are up to the curator's discretion. Creativity and Effort are two main factors in deciding curation values.

  • As mentioned before, just copying or tracing the card characters and recoloring them will be minimally rewarded or not at all.

  • Photoshopped collages without actual art will be considered less original creatively speaking and curated not as much as crafted art.

  • Not including your progress steps will exclude you from winning or being curated. Not citing and sourcing any inspirational sources that are not your own original content will result in a ban from future participation and being muted in the Splinterlands community.

  • Prizes will be sent out a few days after the contest results are announced

The Deadline for the Weekly Art Contest is Saturday, at 5:00 PM CST

  • Did you miss the deadline or enter too late? No worries... you can just add your entry by submitting your comment with your URL link and attached image of your art the next day in the comment section of the next Weekly Splinterlands Art Contest Post. As long as it's still within the payout period of posting... it's considered a valid entry, even if you have the wrong weekly contest number in your title.

10 Booster Packs will be split between the winners!!!

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

@castleberry

Can you please guide me what to do with my late Splinterlands entry for week 216? I usually just post it under compilation post but this week it's different so I don't know what to do here.

There's not much to do really. I didn't know this week's theme either until after the new one was out. Next time, if you are late, i would wait on posting and see what the deal is first. It's not bad to have some art on stand-by for a rainy day or if something comes up and you won't have time that week to participate. It is some great artwork and so is this one!

Ah I see thanks for clearing all the doubts. I'll keep that in mind next time. I also read that sometimes curation is possible twice in a week and that's why I specifically contacted you. Thanks for the prompt replies and I always appreciate the support from you and the Splinterlands community.

Thanks again :)

Thank you! @victoradebiyiart The title of the post and also the cover image gave me a hint that it will be a different theme for this week. Maybe the others already prepared their art last week and thought that it will be the usual character art contest.

Seems like most of the early entrants didn't read the contest rules for this week. Here is my entry:

They must have prepared their art before this weeks contest and then just dropped them thinking it's the same as before. 😊

My 7th place is unexpected but I'm happy the curators liked it.

I wanted to get back on making emotes and this is my first attempt after my break.

your art is cool, and you have a good favor from the curator. i just wish i have a same favor too.

I don't think I would call it a good favor from the curator. According to the rules, effort is also acknowledge as curation criteria. If you would see my very first digital art, you would laugh as it looks like a drawing by a 5 year old.

I think I did put a lot of effort each art trying new stuff to better my work. :)

I suggest watching youtube tutorials and getting inspirations from other artists. It made my drawings and coloring improved a lot.

look at my entry. seems good and i've done some big effort too. but not even half of what they curate yours. its clean and in proper body proportion too. maybe they didnt want the art style I do. I'm kind of confuse of what im missing.

is it because you have a higher reputation than me?

friend I made a publication in the Art Contest Week 216! Not realizing until today that it said, Tower Defense Spell Contest! Is that why they don't vote for him? and sorry for the inconvenience.

Maybe I read the post wrong. I thought they were looking for a spell icon to place on card.
Cheers and may the "spells" be with you.
