The fourth annual Mistral Jamboree will begin March 26, 2017 and we're running a skin & accent design contest in celebration! The contest is for wind-themed skins & accents that will drop in the coliseum and stock in the treasure marketplace only during this holiday week (after which they will be retired.)


Deadline: Thursday March 23, 2017 23:59 server time
Format: 350x350 png (png24)
Prizes: Winners will be credited in the tooltip of the skin, and will receive a copy of their winning skin, 1,500 gems, a forum vista and a 5-skin multi-copy-pack so they can craft more beautiful custom skin creations.

Theme: The Wind Flight

Below is some great information to help you get started on your submission:

Flight Information

The Wind Dragons of the Windswept Plateau are explorers. They prefer to be joyful and care-free, like the gentle and playful breezes that whisk them to new lands. Of all the dragons, Wind Dragons are the most friendly, eager to become a small part of every community they encounter before they eventually and inevitably leave, following the currents in pursuit of a new adventure. Maps, compasses, and feathers are their favored treasure.

Region Information

Here exists a peaceful highland of steppes and fields, the terrain itself swaying to the tune of the endless plumes and currents of warm wind that caress the region. It is a world of rushed merriment, as dragons dive through and curl around gigantic clouds, racing one another through pockets of swirling cool air. The messages of the world all pass through this plateau, with each dragon traveling somewhere, and for some reason, guided only by the direction of the wind and a sense of exploration.

Reigning Deity

The reigning deity of the Wind Flight is the Windsinger, depicted below:

Restrictions:

Entries must be your own creation (Submit your own art. No copyrighted characters). The use of texture is discouraged. Please do not watermark your contest submissions. Entries must be unique and may not be reprints or edits of custom skin items. Winning entries will become an official flight rising skin or accent, and may not be reused or reuploaded as a custom skin at a later date. (this includes edits) Entries that are not selected will still be eligible for being uploaded by the user as a custom skin or accent.







Skin & Accent Rules & Reminders:

A reminder to read the skin & accent creation rules. All entries must abide by these. The exception and addition to the existing rules is that we are are requiring all holiday contest accents cover a minimum of 5% of the dragon, and a maximum of 50% (this is a change from the custom accent rules, which state an accent may be 1%-30% - this rule still holds true for all non-contest accents.) Accents are recommended to be markings rather than apparel, which is provided through the festive favors shop. Here some additional reminders for skin rules:
  • Skins must maintain an intact shadow and line art layer that are darker than the colors they sit on top of.
    • Do not erase into either of these layers.
    • Do not make them so light that they do not appear distinctly darker than the colors that they rest on top of.
  • Remember that skins and accents may not cover up line art or extend beyond the silhouette of the dragon.
  • All submissions must be 350x350 png24 with transparency. Large previews are fine, but we need the correctly sized image for judging.







How to Enter:

Stop on by our custom skins page and download a PSD. Use these templates (and helpful tutorials) to assist you in creating your homage to the Wind Flight. To enter, post a reply containing your entry in this thread. You may enter up to 2 times. Please edit your original post and house your entries within the same reply to keep things tidy. Please no post reservations (posting a claim slot without an entry. Reserve posts without an entry inside will be deleted.)

We look forward to seeing what you create!
