The fourth annual Wavecrest Saturnalia will begin April 23, 2017 and we're running a skin & accent design contest in celebration! The contest is for water-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 April 20, 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 Water Flight

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

Flight Information

The water dragons of the Sea of a Thousand Currents are oracles. They prefer to be as fluid as the waves and currents of the oceans. Of all the dragons, water dragons are the most mysterious, predicting the many futures that may come to pass, but revealing nothing of what they divine to outsiders. Shells and magic orbs are their favored treasures.

Region Information

The largest body of freshwater in the realm. The sea rises and falls each day, bringing all manner of sea life to the shores of the regions surrounding it, providing sustenance to clans of all elements. So vast is this sea, that the shorebound observer would see only the faint silhouette of the surrounding lands on the horizon. It is beneath this colossal well that water dragons spend their lives, traversing the deeps and sharing visions of the futures they foresee.

Reigning Deity

The reigning deity of the Water Flight is the Tidelord, 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 Water 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!
