Creators Club 2016

Hi guys, JR here with the formal announcement of this years Creators Club Poster.

This years poster is being done by Stulte and the theme is Magic. So what you guys need to do is create a self portrait of yourself, either realistic or idealised, as some form of Fantasy based magic user, be it Witch, Wizard, Mage or other. You can show magic use if you wish and use poses other than the standard base pose, however we must insist on a few things. 1. The character must be forward facing, 2. Faces must be visible, so no masks or face coverings please, and 3. No backgrounds. Shading is optional, so you don't have to shade if you don't want to. And obviously all entries must be full-body pictures.

Of course, as with all previous CCP's, for your entry to be acceptable you must complete the following criteria. If you don’t then you don’t get on the poster.

1. Your entry must be in .png format. You must title it in standard contest entry style i.e. Username- Creators Club Poster (for example I would title mine JR19759- Creators Club Poster). Don’t screenshot the picture and send that in, export it as a .png please.

2. You MUST include the text for your entry. Mandatory. This is incase Stulte needs to re-export any of the files in a bigger or smaller format. You can include it as an attachment in the email or just paste it into the email, but you have to have the text accessible.

3. Your email has to be titled something applicable to the Creators Club, so its easy to recognise as not-spam.

4. You only have one entry, so make sure you’re happy with it before you send it in. It doesn’t have to be the worlds best creation, this is only for fun after all, but we don’t want endless revisions.

After you've done that, send your entry to Stulte at . Submissions will be open until Feb 1st as of today, so you've got a whole month to do your entries, just don't leave it to the last minute and not give yourself enough time. This is open to everyone, so you don't have to be especially prolific or a Power User or anything, just a part of the community. And remember, this isn't a challenge or anything, so just have fun with it.

If you have any questions, just leave them in the comments and Stulte and myself will try to answer them as best we can. If Stulte has anything else to add, I'm sure he'll do so in the comments as well. But with that, I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.

JR out.

    Looks like its time for me to wake up from creation coma. Brace yourself, Lull-carae shall try to join Creators Club.

    Btw. got one question: You dont mind if i will try to do something with my “shade until you will see only black color” style, or rather i will have to make something brighter this time?

  2. JR19759 says:

    @Lull-Carae- Shading is optional and the face obviously needs to be visible, so don’t go too overboard with the shading in that respect.

  3. Suleman says:

    Since we’re making wizards and the like, are there restrictions on the kinds of magic effects we are allowed to add? Like, golems or summoned creatures, big energy effects, etc?

  4. JR19759 says:

    @Suleman- Keep it small please. Obviously we don’t want something that’s going to take up the whole poster by itself.

  5. Lull-carae says:

    Crazy question time! Are only human-characters allowed to Creators club? (you should know what i mean by asking that, JR)

    And second, normal question: By “1. The character must be forward facing” you mean:
    a) Entire character (head, torso) must be facing forward
    b) only head must be facing forward
    Not sure about that one. Lull speaks english bad. Lull sometimes not understand your english

    And i think that’s all questions from me, for now at least. Sorry for taking up space in comments ._.

  6. JR19759 says:

    @Lull-carae- Yes, only human characters (it’s meant to be a self-portrait). And only head facing forward. Don’t worry about it.

  7. cliff says:

    Well I did mine and saved the txt string, but I cant export as PNG I think I have pop-ups blocked and am clueless how to allow them.

    The block was done by a friend in Fort Worth and I don’t live there any more.

    I think my friend John can fix it, but might be Monday rthat happens.

  8. Suleman says:

    What you can also do is take a screenshot and save it manually as png in e.g. Paint or whatever picture manipulation program you use.

    As long as the end result is in .png, you should be fine.

  9. Stulte says:

    @ Cliff
    Don’t worry about it. Just send me the text and I’ll make the export myself.

  10. Lull-carae says:

    Extremely Crazy Question Time!

    I don’t like doing male characters, can i portrait myself as female/woman/less-ugly-gender?

  11. JR19759 says:

    @Lull-Carae- If you so wish. I don’t really like doing male characters that much, so I know where you’re coming from with that question.

  12. Worf says:

    Just 1 question, what’s the time limit on this?

  13. JR19759 says:

    @Worf- It says in the post. Submissions are open until Feb 1st.

  14. djuby says:

    Have a question regarding masks/face coverings. I wear glasses. If I wished to use a domino mask instead of glasses so that it was more in keeping with the period of the design, is that acceptable? One would not hide my face more than the other.

  15. djuby says:

    …or would it be ok to use items to create a more interesting pair of spectacles than those available?

  16. JR19759 says:

    @djuby- I’d go with the second option.

  17. Worf says:

    @JR: Thanks. I skimmed the text and missed that.

  18. Lime says:

    What size should we export it as?
